Absolutely unbeatable experience for opulent ambiance whilst indulging in afternoon tea. All the staff were superb - in both restaurant and the hotel . We were made to feel really special which just added to a memorable experience.

A sign of good leadership is when you see a manager working as hard, if not harder than his team. I was happy to see the general manager checking in in tables and helping staff. This was reflected in the calm and professional attitude of the staff. Our server for the afternoon tea was very pleasant and more than willing to explain the entire process in full. I would definitely return and recommend this to others.

The service was exceptional. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and that all our dining needs were met. They gave recommendations for food and drink based on what we have enjoyed in the past. This was one of the best dining experiences I have had in all of Ireland .

The best part of this experience was the ambiance. We went to several teas while in Ireland and while this wasn’t my favorite tray, it was my favorite tea and service.

Having dined across the globe, Earl of Thomond surpassed my expectations! The Castle, dining room, ambiance only added to one of the finest dining experiences on the planet. I chose to experience the Tasting menu with wine pairing. The sommelier took me thru every wine, making each selection match perfectly to the course. The staff is courteous and attentive. You did not skip a beat. This was our final night in Ireland, and a surprise to my wife and daughter. An experience that will be remembered until the next time. Ken Stern, Montebello, NY.

We had a fabulous experience yesterday for afternoon tea in dromoland. I had been here last year and it didn’t disappoint. We got plenty to eat and each piece was fabulous. The grounds are amazing and the staff are so lovely

A wonderful experience! The staff could not have been any more friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was as one might expect from a Michelin Star restaurant, fantastic. Great cocktails and wine list and reasonably priced to boot. The only negative might be the odd positioning of the tables where we were seated - funky layout, a little claustrophobic., in a beautiful room, I was facing an old door in the corner and we were close to the first seating that evening. Seating issues aside, I highly recommend a reservation if your in the Dromoland vicinity.

I think that you did a great job. The look on my granddaughter’s face was worth every Euro we paid. Once the three tiered stands arrived, I thought, and still think, that that was the best meal I ever had.

Outstanding. As I said to your staff before we left. This was our anniversary dinner, which last year we had at Jules Verne Rest. in the Eifel Tower. Not counting the view, we enjoyed the Earl of Thomond more. Food and service were awesome.
