One of the better known castle hotels in Ireland, Dromoland, oozes Irish history, wonderful architecture, warm welcomes and an attractive landscape.
This ancestral home of the O´Brien´s is just as impressive as you´d expect: from the flames blazing in large ornate fireplaces in luxurious chambers to rich and cosy rooms over- looking walled gardens, there is so much for the eye to take in and savour. Wherever you find yourself here, you´ll be regaled and intrigued in comfortable intimacy.
Then outside, you´ll be happy to know that some of the 400 acres surrounding the castle consist of the enticing golf course that was ranked no. 59 on the Golf Digest Volvo Top 100 Irish Courses, 2018.
After a round of golf (or even clay shooting, pony ride, tennis or other activity) you may want to rejuvenate in the calming spa before sampling an ¨authentic taste of Ireland¨ in one of the dining rooms.
What is better than golfing on a stunning parkland course and then being enveloped in Irish warmth and riches in this historic and acclaimed place?
