I was a little nervous that the afternoon tea would be a little “stuffy” especially as we were arriving with an infant, but every single staff member that we encountered was absolutely lovely and welcoming and went out of their way to assist us with the pram, etc. The food and tea was superb as well and we left completely stuffed!

We have made Dromoland Castle and the Earl of Thomond our last stop in Ireland on several occasions. Once again, it did not disappoint. The food and service were top notch. Highly recommend. Megan Fitzgerald Vagabond Travel Agency

Amazing meal! Attentive staff lovely food and although a very formal room it wasn’t intimidating or cold. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful however would have been nice to have allergens displayed on menu rather than have to ask were certain dishes suitable. However my chosen dessert had 3 elements and contained a chocolate cake which had nuts in. Waitress said I could have just the other 2 which I was happy with. However when my dessert arrived they had kindly replaced the chocolate cake with a nut free chocolate tart. So thoughtful!! We had dinner on both nights of our stay and the menu was the same on both nights, with the 2 main course daily specials also the same. Would be nice to have had a different special But it was an amazing meal and I very much hope to return to enjoy it again! Compliments to chef and staff

This is my O'Brien ancestral home and I visited and stayed here back in 2006 on an O'Brien Clan tour. Wanted to come back so when my husband and I were planning our trip to Ireland this year, visiting again was top on my list. We made dinner reservations and when we drove in to the castle drive, I had tears of joy in my eyes + all during dinner - just could not believe I was there again. Definitely a very special memory - maybe will come back again some day :)

We had a lovely afternoon tea at Dromoland. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. I will look forward to returning on my next trip to Ireland.

Beautiful surroundings. Staff very attentive and polite. Really enjoyable experience. The only thing I could fault was the leaky tea pots. Other than that I couldn’t fault.

We loved our visit to the Earl of Thomond for my Mum’s 60th birthday. The service and food was excellent, I had particular dietary requirements which were met without issue and this was greatly appreciated. We vowed to return when we’re all together again at Christmas. Many thanks

We really enjoyed the afternoon at Dromoland - seven of us met there for tea. The afternoon tea was delicious and the surroundings could not have been better . The sun did shine on us and with the lake and walks so beautiful we could not believe we had talked our way from 2pm to 5pm so quickly. All staff at entrance, hotel or restaurant were friendly and helpful.

My husband and I will come back to Dromoland Castle again and again. Our favourite place! We always feel relaxed and cosy in the castle. Great people and food. The best Afternoon Tea!

I recently took my mother for afternoon tea at the castle. It was fantastic from start to finish. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waiter, Ronan went the out of his way to help my mother, who was celebrating a 'significant' birthday, feel extra special. I was impressed by the overall experience and will certainly be recommending it to others.

The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. The Afternoon tea itself wasn't explained/described so we weren't sure what was in a lot of the sandwiches etc... seems petty but it is usually a nice touch when they explain what you are eating (I am a foodie and I love talking about food!). I love the ladies toilets, the decor is out of this world, I would live in the toilet :)
