we loved our afternoon tea. The only comment I would make is that I would have loved a crab option with the sandwiches but other than that it could not be faulted.

My two sisters, four nieces and myself had the most wonderful afternoon tea last Saturday. The service was amazing and we were delighted with our afternoon. The food for the teenagers was great as they had the hot chocolate with marshmallows instead of the tea. One of our teenagers is a vegetarian and once again that was no problem. We were in no hurry and did not feel rushed in any way at all.

IWe had a wonderful experience at afternoon tea yesterday. It was my daughter's birthday and the restaurant staff were just so welcoming and made her day so special. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent and I would highly recommend it. Looking forward to celebrating more birthdays at Dromoland.

My three friends and I had such a fantastic afternoon tea experience with you yesterday celebrating the start of our 40th birthday year. It was over and above what we expected. Aric and Laoise looked after us so well and put us completely at ease and their hospitality was so generous. They really made the experience so special for us. The atmosphere in the castle was so festive and warm, we could have happily stayed there soaking it in for another few hours. Thank you so much for getting our year off to a fantastic start!!

We had our annual afternoon tea recently and it was delightful. Fantastic service and wonderful hospitality followed into the library where we enjoyed the atmosphere and festive mulled wine. Will be booking again for next year's gathering of family.

We had a wonderful trip for Christmas Afternoon Tea yesterday. A couple in our party had never been & were most complimentary after. The food was stunning & the staff were so inviting & could not do enough for us. Very pleasant people & really make the place. We were reluctant to leave but are looking forward to a return visit.

We had a lovely experience of celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary here. A complimentary glass of bubbly to start with, then a beautiful, well-presented meal and to top it all the chef even made a small anniversary cake for us and the dining staff brought it o our table. An experience we will never forget! Thank you!

My mom and I really enjoyed our festive tea. It was so cosy and started our Christmas off beautifully. The service was excellent, staff were very attentive, especially the lovely woman from Portugal, I’m sorry I’ve forgotten her name but she was great. The food was delicious and generous portions with offers of more. There was a lovely mix of sandwiches and pastries all beautifully displayed. We both found it a most relaxing atmosphere without a hint of pretentiousness. We will certainly be back.

My first experience in Dromoland and it was a pleasure. The food was top class but the staff were second to none. Very very attentive, professional and warm. My only regret was not staying over! The wedding anniversary cake was a much appreciated treat!
