Only at Dromoland Castle for one night, but quite worth it. The Walled Garden was nice, even for being late in the season. The drinks were good at the bar. Would recommend the bangers and mash, scrumptious. Put this hotel on your next Irish vacation.

Ireland’s most magical address, Dromoland Castle has been welcoming guests since the 16th Century. The ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland, whose lineage dates back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, one of the last High Kinds of Ireland, we’ve got nobility and hospitality in our DNA. From the imposing baronial façade, to our startling interioirs, you’ll find a world of historic grandeur underpinned by the finest modern comforts. With lavish décor, indulgent dining, fabulous views and magnificent bedrooms, this is a place to feel at home. Behind our warm Irish welcome is the belief that every guest is royalty. Stroll the 450-acre estate. Tee off on our world class golf course. Take afternoon tea by a roaring fire. Relax in our intimate spa. Enjoy delicious cuisine. No matter what your preference, at Dromoland Castle there’s no escaping the sense that you are walking in the shadows of kings. The pinnacle of excellence, come in the knowledge that all your expectations will be met.

Yes they are in the original building. All the room are connected though, so it is not a big deal to be in other wings of the hotel. This is a fantastic place. I hope you are able to stay there and enjoy it.
