Gorgeous spacious accommodations

Negative Reviews


Shooting range is close to walking trails

One grievance that stands out is that clay pigeon shooting is within a range where pellets can land where some of the walking and relaxation spots are on the grounds. Keep this in mind, and check with staff if you're going to stroll around.


Difficult to experience everything

There's so much to do and see when staying at Dromoland Castle that it's a minor complaint that time is never enough! Activities should be booked in advance, and schedules taken into consideration to see if you can stay a bit longer.
