Really impressed with the level of service here but moreso with the attitude of the staff, they are a credit to the castle, so friendly and helpful from the moment I entered to leaving, will return. The atmosphere is lovely.

This was my second time visiting and the food was lovely however the staff spent most of the time talking and folding napkins/ leaflets rather than checking on tables. We had to put a good bit of effort into catching the staffs attention.

My family and I had a wonderful 40th wedding celebratory dinner in Dromoland last Saturday night. Denis and all the staff were so welcoming and helpful and we really appreciated the anniversary cake. It is clear that Mark Nolan is running a superb hotel.

Excellent service with personal touch. Tea refilled twice, doggy bag given with pastries to take away. Very relaxing and comfortable setting. Scones were delicious, including gluten free option ( I have Coeliac Disease). The overall experience was most enjoyable from the warm Welcome of the Head Porter at the main entrance to the dining room staff, seamless professionalism with warm Irish hospitality, thank you.

€50 was added to the bill that I was previously unaware of. It wasn’t obvious and therefore we tipped substantially on top of the bill. A small bit disappointed with this. But the rest of the experience was lovely.

I had the most delicious sole I have ever had! My husband and I were treated to a chocolate cake for dessert with congratulations written in chocolate on the plate. I have Coeliac disease, and was thrilled and grateful when I found out the cake had been made gluten free for me. Very special night!

Our server for the evening was Seán C. Sorry I don’t know his surname. He was an absolute gentleman. He was extremely helpful and there when needed but without us feeling like we were being intruded upon. Just a really nice genuine guy. The rest of the restaurant and bar staff were also polite and gracious to those that they were serving. A quiet drink in the Gallery afterwards was equally nice. We’ll be back!

I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more savoury on the tray for afternoon tea maybe I should of asked for more. Once they serviced us no one came back to ask us was it ok etc for about a hour. Very nice location and great experience.

The best afternoon tea experience I’ve ever had, I’ve been to several establishments over the years but I keep getting drawn back to Dromoland. Five star service, fantastic food and brilliant atmosphere the staff are amazing and so attentive

We were in the Earl of Thomand restaurant for afternoon tea, atmosphere was very disappointing and the room was cold. Service was good and the food was nice, but not what we expected from the supposedly luxurious Dromoland Castle

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
