Dromoland Hotel Entrance photoIt is the historic seat of Ireland’s O’Brien Clan, ancestral home of the Barons of Inchiquin, direct Gaelic descendants of Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland from the 11th century. The Dromoland Estate came into being in the 1500’s. The current Dromoland Castle is a gothic revival manor, redesigned in 1835 from the original 16th Century Renaissance residence, which in turn replaced a former fortified castle.
