If you have ever wondered what it would be like to stay in a castle, then I have the perfect place for you. The Dromoland Castle in Ireland is the perfect experience for anyone longing to get an authentic castle experience. Located in a 15th century Irish castle, this five star hotel is guaranteed to take your breath away.
An Authentic Castle Experience
At the Dromoland Castle Hotel, you can experience an Irish castle stay the way it was meant to be experienced. The minute you walk inside, you will be taken back by the attention to detail and the authenticity of the experience. All of the rooms are lavishly decorated and feature many vintage Irish relics that bring the castle to life before your eyes.
You can get lost as you explore the castle’s many corridors and rooms, which are all decorated perfectly to fit the time period of the castle and is done with a tremendous amount of class. Once you have checked in, you can take a nice stroll by the enchanting lake that sits on the property or make a tee time at the beautiful golf course on site.
The Accommodations Are First Class
When you stay at the Dromoland Castle Hotel, you are staying in class. The rooms are exquisitely furnished with crystal chandeliers, spa-inspired bathrooms, and comfortable and elegant furniture that makes you feel right at home.
The Gardens Are Breathtaking
If the castle itself wasn’t beautiful enough, you will be blown away by the beauty of the gardens on the castle grounds. They are a perfect place to take an afternoon stroll and enjoy some peace and serenity.
How to Get There
The Dromoland Castle Hotel is located in the County Clare in central Ireland, just North of the city of Limerick. It is about a three hour drive from Dublin via the M4, M6, and M18 highways, if you are coming from the capital city. If you are coming from Galway in the North, it is only about an hour drive via the M18 to get to the Dromoland Castle.
The Dromoland Castle’s central location makes it an easy location to stay at when exploring central Ireland. Clare, Limerick city, Galway city, Cork city, and Killarney are all less than two hours away. It is also a short drive away from the many stops on the Ring of Kerry and from the Cliffs of Moher.
The Dromoland Castle is one of Ireland’s most magical places to stay. We so thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the castle, even though it was too brief. Below are some of the many wonderful pictures that I was able to take while at the castle.
