Awards & Accolades

2022 Historic Hotels Worldwide Awards of Excellence Winner

Ireland’s most magical address, Dromoland Castle Hotel, has been welcoming guests since the 16th century. It is the ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland, with a lineage that dates back over 1,000 years to one of the last High Kings of Ireland, Brian Boru. The castle was massively updated and renovated in the 1820s, with additions, carvings, and priceless art, and little having changed since then. After traversing a long, curving drive past a large-walled garden and the large lake, visitors can behold the monumental castle, with its four linked castellated turrets and gothic porch. Dromoland Castle Hotel is the gateway to Ireland’s history and culture, perfectly located to explore the South and South-West of Ireland, and the Wild Atlantic Way, 2,500 km of unforgettable coastal roads. Also located in County Clare is the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark, an ancient lunar-like limestone landscape. Locally, visitors can experience Ireland’s rich history, from the medieval town of Ennis to a medieval feast at Bunratty Castle, and a stroll past the Georgian buildings of Limerick City. Dive into Ireland’s ancient heritage with a day trip to the magical Aran Islands and music-filled streets of Galway City, or make for the coast and breathe in the purest air rushing over the Atlantic spray.
