Great meal in the restaurant last weekend. Service, food and atmosphere just perfect. Nothing rushed just perfect and excellent wine to accompany the meal. Will be back.
It would have been five stars for service except that we had to ask for our scones as they had been forgotten. A little on the expensive side for the amount of food served but we enjoyed it.
Lovely Afternoon Tea, excellent service very relaxed. Everything was fresh and delicious. Would definitely go back again!
Phenomenal experience all around could not find one fault from purchasing a voucher for my mom's birthday to rebooking due to covid cancelation, being greeted at the reception and the whole dining experience was amazing. Exceptional service from each member of staff that we came in contact with. Food was superb, we were even given a little take home box for what we could not finish, as there was an abundance of delicious sandwiches, scones and sweet treats. Would absolutely recommend to friends and family and will be returning again.
Beautiful setting, so well looked after, delicious food.
Outstanding service and food cannot recommend highly enough Irelands best dining room full stop!
Great food , attentive service
Fantastic service, all staff very professional yet friendly. We felt comfortable and well looked after during these pandemic times. Our only gripe was the fillet beef was slightly overcooked for our liking.
Eric and his colleagues were amazing and made my Mums special treat so so memorable!! Thank you to the amazing staff and look forward to seeing you again soon. Would definitely recommend highly as a luxurious treat from start to finish. Olivia
We really enjoyed our Afternoon Tea as did our 12year old daughter. Even during these Covid times we felt very comfortable, safe and in no way rushed. The variety and standard of food was superb. There was nothing a problem e.g more sandwiches etc. We left fully satisfied in every way. Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent food, tasty & cooked to perfection. Attentive staff. Lovely atmosphere with the harpist playing. We had a vegan in our group & on the second night, the menu was completely changed to give her a variety of foods. This shows the attention within the organisation. Well done to all. A great experience all round.
We went for afternoon tea for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. The staff were unbelievably helpful and kind. The food was amazing and the grounds were stunning. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon!
Staff and setting were excellent. Food was disappointing given the prices charged. Next morning we had the full Irish for breakfast. That meal was especially disappointing (seems the ingredients were sometimes the cheapest from the local supermarket (especially the breads!!). Again the staff and setting was excellent though.
The afternoon tea is ok but is certainly not good value for money. We didn't even get scones and I was disappointed with the attentiveness of the staff to bring additional items like the scones. For 2 people for afternoon tea we were served 6 sandwich bites, 9 small cake bites for €70. We had also ordered some prosecco so our total bill was over €150. Nice location but unlikely to book again.
Dining in the Earl of Thomond restaurant was a wonderful experience. The afternoon tea was superb and the staff are so friendly. The service was excellent.
An excellent dining experience with truly wonderful food and excellent professional service. The passion fruit souffle was devine. Superb wine list. Impressive ambiance..
Service was great for the first 20mins but once our mains were delivered we waited a long time for our plates to be cleared and for a dessert menu to be offered. Wine wasn’t replaced and no one asked us how was our main course. Otherwise, we received a warm welcome, and the quality and presentation of meals was superb, as was the service from our wine host.
Had a lovely afternoon tea, everything was perfect. Will be definitely coming back.
Very enjoyable afternoon in Dromoland. Clean and well kept, very helpful and friendly staff. Well done!
An overall wonderful experience.....to be repeated soon.. Fabulous staff and a caring management team. COVID19 precautions very well initiated giving a sense of safety and comport throughout. Well done to all!
All staff were amazing
Amazing food, service top class and always with a smile. Choice for dinner excellent. Compliments to the Chef and his team
Excellent fine dining experience, beautiful food, relaxed atmosphere; staff particularly professional and friendly; food is very high standard. Beautiful views out over the lake. Hard to beat...
Thank you to all who looked after my husband and mother in law on Monday for afternoon tea. They had a wonderfull time and came home raving about the great service, food and beverage. Deirdre Duff
