We thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea in February. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back.
A great restaurant. The food was perfect and the service impeccable ! Everything was perfect !
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had an amazing evening with wonderful service and delicious food! It was a top notch experience overall and we will definitely be back the next time we’re in Ireland!
One of the best meals I have ever had!!!
The castle stay was amazing. I wish we had more time. Don’t stay for just one night stay for two or three because there’s so much to do and see at the castle in the surrounding area. The falconry experience was absolutely amazing and a must do. Don’t come to this castle without truly taking in the history and his amazing birds. Ask for Mike. This young man is extremely knowledgeable and kind. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him during this experience.
Lovely friendly staff who gave excellent service
Fabulous experience and amazing staff - will be back again !!
Lovely experience - dining, grounds, staff
Would like to have seen a few new dishes on second day of menu
Wonderful evening was had. Thank you
As this was our 5th dining experience in this establishment,we were not surprised that it outdone our last 4 as each one continually gets better and better.A sure sign that not one member of staff ever lets the standard of the hotel slip in any way!
Dinner at Earl of Thomond was one of the highlights of our honeymoon!! Our night started with being greeted with complementary glasses of champagne for a congratulations for just getting married. Then we did the 8 course meal with the wine pairings and it was FABULOUS! The food was all delicious, the wine pairings were fantastic and not the typical pairings I would have imagined! And the customer service was outstanding and authentic, genuinely kind people all around! We are looking forward to celebrating anniversaries here in the future!
We come to Dromoland for afternoon tea every few months, and you never disappoint! Already looking forward to our next afternoon Tea at Dromoland, may be at Easter. Wonderful atmosphere, fabulous food, great service. We keep coming back. That says it all, I think?
Amazing food (which included some vegetarian choices) and the atmosphere was perfect - the place felt busy but relaxed. Wine recommendation was perfect, but above all the staff and service were top quality.
Wonderful welcome by Ryan. The lovely Annalise assisting us with just desserts. Superb fare not food. Excellent fusions of flavours and scents party for the tastebuds. Gorgeous atmosphere. Poor first time to dine in The Earl of Thomand. Magnificent room. Great team. Very informative and very polished on executing a top service to couples and parties. Look so forward on returning. Loved our 2 night stay. 5 course meal inclusive of our stay. A 3 course offered. Delightful all round. Thank you. Best Susan & Dermot H.
My family and I so enjoyed our dinner. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and our 30th wedding anniversary! Truly a wonderful delicious evening. Thank you so much! Eileen
I have been to lots of nice places but no place like Dromoland Castle to get a really good feel good factor every thing was perfect and left with such a smile while sad to leave.
Eloquently prepared and amazing taste during our five course meal. I would highly recommend to anybody thinking of going to Dromoland.
The whole experience was just wonderful. Very friendly, welcoming and professional staff who were full of good humour and generosity. The BEST afternoon tea experience you’ll find!
Superb service and a lovely dining experience
