10/10 - food , service cocktails and atmosphere was lovely. Felt so safe with the Covid precautions in place. Staff could not do enough and harp being played during the dinner. Absolutely fabulous evening would definitely recommend!

A very relaxing afternoon and great value
Had a lovely day for my friend's birthday. Our waitress Simona was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Great atmosphere and a lovely walk in the grounds afterwards. Thanks to all the staff
Service was wonderful and we felt extremely well looked after.
We had a wonderful stay- will highly recommend it to our friends .
Had a really enjoyable afternoon tea at Dromoland Castle. The whole experience was so good I would recommend it to everyone. The food and drink offered was really lovely and extra sandwiches and hot drinks were provided at no extra cost. The staff we met were genuinely friendly and I would definitely go back.
An exceptionally good meal. The food was fantastic, with excellent service. A wonderful experience.
Have enjoyed afternoon tea on numerous occasions and this afternoon tea experience far surpassed anywhere else! Highly recommend and looking forward to returning to Dromoland Castle!
Found the service v slow. We arrived and were asked to pick out which afternoon tea we wanted, 15mins later the waitress came back. Food was served fairly quick but we couldn't get anyone back to the table after the food was served for tea top ups, water and extra sandwiches.
Amazing sublime experience. The maitre made us feel very special and all the staff were superb.
We had an excellent evening in your restaurant. The team were very professional and courteous considering the challenging environment you are operating in. Thank You Se Gardiner and to the extended team, Grainne stood out on the evening due to her genuine hospitable nature. We were so grateful for the beautifully created Anniversary cake. You really made our stay extra special. Many thanks.
Had a fantastic stay from start to finish. Could not recommend highly enough. Staff were so helpful and professional. Food was out of this world. A visit to the walled gardens is a must where Dorothea and her team do a great job. Will probably never stay anywhere ever again for a short break. It is truly a Castle feeling and we felt like queens. Thank you all so much.
Exceptional staff and the food was delicious!
Everything was just lovely and the staff couldn't have been nicer!
All staff were excellent but Eoin O Neill stood out with his personality and his passion for his job.
Excellent service, tastes and value
Service charge is a bit high, but other than that, it is the perfect place to spend an Afternoon. The glass of prosecco to mark our birthdays was a very nice touch, so Thank You very much.
Unbelievable service and attention to detail. The atmosphere was so relaxed and food was gorgeous.
This was my first time visiting Dromland for Afternoon Tea. It was my Mum's 83rd Birthday,what a fabulous Afternoon we had,my Aunt & Daughter were delighted with their experience. From the warm welcome we received to the beautiful array of sandwiches and pastries. My Mother was pleasantly surprised with the lovely plate that she got with 3 candles lite and a glass of posco. To the wonderful manager and helpful and friendly staff who served us,we will be back.
We had a fantastic afternoon tea experience. The staff were very attentive, the service was excellent and the food and coffee was delicious. We received a warm welcome at the door and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. We will definitely be back.
We had the most amazing time at Dromoland Castle. We had a reservation for Afternoon Tea in the Earl of Thomond Restaurant to celebrate my Mother's 80th Birthday.
