This was a very charming room to have dinner with crystal chandeliers, white glove service. The service was excellent and they went beyond to attempt to meet the needs of all at the table. Most important the food was very tasty. We had breakfast here as well as part of our Castle stay and it was equally good.

Every meal we had at Dromoland Castle was absolutely fabulous. Don't miss high tea and if you are American, don't blink at that price of high tea. You are getting a wonderful experience you can't get in the US, even in places that say they serve high tea. You will feel as if you are in your own castle, being... More

Dromoland Castle has a amazing setting and looks really spectacular on a clear cold winters day. My wife and i really looked forward to our visit to this special place.for Champagne afternoon tea.. At a cost of €82 you would expect something exceptional, but this was a very ordinary experience. Service was average. No real effort made to make the... More

Fabulous 5 star treatment all the way, so it is more expensive than other "Afternoon tea" experiences. But I would recommend this for a "special" treat

My husband didn't bring a jacket to Ireland so we ate at the Gallery Bar two nights in a row. The Gallery Bar was very classy and the staff was extremely attentive. The receptionist forgot to hand us a coupon for our cocktails that were included in our costco package but the waiter was very accommodating and checked on it... More

We usually prefer to not eat in our hotel. I remembered the dining as wonderful last time, so we made a reservation. We were promptly seated, graciously attended to and enjoyed a delightful dinner. All of our food was excellent. The breakfast was equally good and prompt.

We when only for drinks and had a chance to see part of the Castle and grounds. This is a VERY elegant Hotel and the grounds are landscaped to perfection
