Dromoland Castle Accomodation Guide
Dromoland Castle, just eight miles from Shannon Airport in County Clare, is one of the most famous baronial castles in Ireland and dates back to the 16th century. Dromoland was the ancestral seat of the O' Briens, Barons of Inchiquin, who are one of the few native Gaelic Irish families of royal blood and direct descendants of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland in the 10th century and legendary in the context of the famous Battle of Clontarf.
Priceless reminders of the Castle's historic past are everywhere; in the splendid wood and stone carvings, magnificent paneling, original oil paintings, romantic gardens and grounds. With today's luxury accommodations, it is truly a perfect blend of past and present. All 75 guestrooms and suites have been recently refurbished. Each room has been decorated individually, with great attention to detail. In the suites, the decor includes rich damask wallpaper, antique furnishings, and custom-designed carpets and drapes.
