    Dromoland Castle
    Newmarket on Fergus
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4078 reviewsTripAdvisor (4078)

    Dromoland Castle sits about 15 miles northwest of Limerick, Ireland, set on a sprawling 450-acre plot of green land. The property, which completed an extensive renovation in 2018, is home to a lake, a spa, a pool and an 18-hole golf course. Plus, visitors can enjoy a bevy of activities, including horseback riding, archery, fishing and hawk walks to the nearby school of falconry. What's more, travelers rave about the scenic setting and the friendly staff members at this castle hotel. When it comes to accommodations, rooms come dressed in elegant decor – just what you'd expect if you were staying in a castle. In-room amenities include Nespresso coffee makers, minibars, televisions and safes. Dromoland Castle is home to multiple dining venues and experiences, too. Earl of Thomond is the hotel's main fine dining restaurant, offering a la carte and five-course meals, and Figtree Restaurant is a casual eatery located in the golf clubhouse. Guests can also enjoy afternoon tea, room service, picnics on the estate (prepared by the staff) or breakfast at The Gallery. While the majority of previous travelers enjoyed their stays, some were disappointed with the expensive room rates. Part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts collection, this castle hotel allows iPrefer Hotel Rewards members to earn or redeem points.
