CASTLE HOTEL & COUNTRY
It 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. Its blue limestone with turrets set in a verdant park of the former estate land make for the romantic image of a true baronial manor. Perched on a sloping hill above the lake around which the long entrance drive winds through the grounds. The castle was refurbished and transformed into a luxury hotel in 1962, and since recognized as one of Ireland’s most splendid castle estate hotels.
The country club styled 410-acres of the estate retain the feeling of a living like royalty, ducks and other feathery water creature roam the grassy grounds attracted by the glassy beautiful lake surrounded by a championship golf course. The interior of the Dromoland Castle Hotel features magnificent wood and stone carvings, hand-carved paneling, original oil paintings, oriental carpets, damask window draperies, and Irish heirloom antique furnishings. The hotel consists of 85 guestrooms and 13 deluxe suites and staterooms individually designed and decorated by designer Carol Roberts of Bath, England. The suites at Dromoland offer the feeling of truly living like a peer, high arching ceilings and old world elegance, massive marble bathrooms, of all you can expect from an estate hotel. A few nights in the Queen Anne Suite will have you convince you’ve been anointed a baronet. Guests of the Dromoland Castle Hotel can hunt or fish in the estate lake well stocked with trout and perch, play tennis on the estates two all weather courts, golf, ride horseback at the neighboring Equestrian Center, cycle the surrounding countryside, enjoy archery or clay shooting, biking, or just roam the beautiful grounds of Irish green in a horse drawn carriage.
