Dromoland Castle ...


Exterior
Dromoland Castle is one of Ireland’s most famous baronial castles. Dating from the 16th century, the castle is the ancestral seat of the direct descendants of High King Brian Boru. A subtle blend of old world elegance and modern day comforts create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and pleasure. Priceless reminders of the past are everywhere, in the splendid wood carvings, magnificent panelling and romantic gardens. The hotel history set in a natural amphitheatre scooped out in bygone days by the action of a glacier ice sheet. Dromoland Castle has a spectacular history going back for many centuries. Dromoland Castle is a very large, early 18th century gothic revival castellated multitowered aslar castle.

Dromoland was the former home of the O’Brien family one of the great noble Irish clans who at times rules southern Ireland, Brian Boru, High King of Ireland. We first hear Of Dromoland in about 1551. The O’Brien family maintained residence in Dromoland until 1962 when due to difficult circumstances; the 16th baron was financially compelled to sell the castle and 375 acres. The new owner Bernard Mcdonagh of West Virginia converted the Castle into a luxury Hotel. In 1986 the property was sold to the present owners, who have invested 7 million dollars on the continued refurbishment of Dromoland Castle.

With a reputation built on its unparalleled warm hospitality, guests will understand just what a special experience it is to stay at Dromoland Castle. Relax and unwind in your room: call room service and order a glass of champagne with canapés before dinner . Our staff is also happy to arrange fresh flowers, handmade chocolates or champagne at your request, should the occasion call for it. Just ask!
