The charming Dromoland Castle can be found in the heart of County Clare, Ireland, where this dreamy castle has been turned into an exclusive hotel that offers incredible accommodations, beautiful surroundings and centuries of history and culture.
Once a magnificent 5th-century fortress, built for Gaelic royalty, the hotel is situated on Ireland’s rugged west coast and provides guests with almost the same extravagance and the luxurious atmosphere as a 5th-century castle.
You will get the chance to relax and unwind amidst grandeur and opulence, listening to stories by a stone fireplace while sipping on a glass of fine cognac or reading a good book.
Those of you who love discovering new places can explore the surroundings of Dromoland Castle by foot or horseback, and if you want to do something else, you can always opt for fishing, falconry, clay shooting, and archery. These are not the usual activities you’d expect from a five star hotel, right?
But Dromoland is not your usual luxury hotel, and this celebrated Irish retreat even offers golfing, on a Ron Kirby-designed 5-star golf course. A day spent out in the fresh air, strolling through nature will also benefit your mind, body and spirit, so you’ll surely feel refreshed here.
But returning to your 1,600 sq. ft. estate-style room is an unparalleled joy and getting ready for dinner has never felt more exciting. The Earl of Thomond Restaurant awaits guests with delicious food, tables clad in Irish linen and laid with Wicklow silver, and grand chandeliers complemented by the soft rhythms of the traditional Irish harp.
