Dromoland Castle

Located near Newmarket-on-Fergus in County Clare, Ireland, Dromoland Castle has stood since the 16th century. The castle is the ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland, whose lineage dates back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, one of the last High Kings of Ireland.

Set on a 450-area estate, Dromoland Castle was converted into a luxury hotel in 1962, and there’s no escaping the sense of walking in the shadows of royalty. After being greeted by a warm Irish welcome, guests can partake in a number of authentically Irish experiences – Tee off on the world class golf course. Take afternoon tea by a roaring fire. Relax in the intimate spa. Or, enjoy delicious cuisine – among the options are fine dining at Earl of Thomond or a private picnic lunch outdoors.

Always ready for a celebration, Dromoland Castle is the perfect backdrop for holiday gatherings, offering family-friendly specials and packages throughout the year for everything from not-too-scary Halloween events to a Christmas party that guests of all ages can enjoy.
