Food was amazing and delicious - catered for dietary need . Food was hot when arrived at the table and was nice to see silver service still being used.

My husband & I booked Dromoland Castle's "New Years 2-Night Celebration Package." It was the most memorable & enjoyable New Year's celebration we've ever had! The grounds are beautiful & are impeccably maintained; walking on the trails was very relaxing. Our Queen Anne room was luxurious & comfortable. The food was delicious! The breakfast buffet & selections were fit for... More

The service was excellent as always, the surroundings are beautiful. Previously I had mrs white afternoon tea and I preferred that to the festive option.

We stayed in the area and went to have a drink in the castle to have a drink, but they had a wedding and the castle was closed to others. We had a drink in a small bar and restaurant off the garden. Nice lodge type atmosphere. The grounds and gardens are beautiful, well worked golf course, lake and swans.

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
