In the verdant heartland of Ireland’s County Clare, Dromoland Castle emerges like a vision from a fairy tale. This historic marvel, a mere fifteen-minute drive from Shannon Airport, is not just a testament to Ireland’s regal past but a beacon of modern luxury. The castle’s latest addition, the Dromoland Lodge, is a splendid embodiment of this blend, offering guests an experience that marries 16th-century grandeur with contemporary comforts.

Set amidst the castle’s sprawling 500-acre estate, which includes a meticulously maintained 18-hole golf course, the Dromoland Lodge is a private five-bedroom residence that was once a cherished private home. It promises exclusivity and privacy, coupled with access to a wealth of amenities that make each stay memorable.

Guests at Dromoland Lodge are treated to daily breakfast options, allowing the choice between the privacy of the lodge or the grandeur of dining at the castle’s Earl of Thomond restaurant. The lodge itself is a haven of luxury, featuring a parlor with a fully stocked bar, a game room for entertainment, and a boot room. The private putting green and an outdoor terrace offer splendid views and activities, while the dining area is perfect for enjoying meals in a serene setting.

For those seeking a more hands-off approach to dining, a personal chef is available to prepare lavish meals on site. Alternatively, guests can opt for the “crock pot” menu, ensuring a warm and welcoming dinner after a day exploring the Wild Atlantic Way or participating in a Hawk Walk with the castle’s resident falconer.

In addition to the lodge’s exclusive offerings, guests have full access to the amenities of Dromoland Castle. This includes the Castle Spa, a sanctuary of relaxation that opened in mid-2023. Nestled within historic stone walls, the spa is inspired by the estate’s former chatelaine, Lady Ethel, and the property’s flower-covered grounds. Spanning 320 square feet with six treatment rooms, the spa features treatments from acclaimed brands like Dr. Barbara Sturm, SEABODY, and OSKIA.

The castle itself offers an array of activities, from golf to tennis and pickleball courts, bicycling, boating, and more. Unique experiences like falconry, clay pigeon shooting, and horseback riding add to the charm, alongside the exclusive JJ Corry whiskey experience. For children, enchanting programs such as “Princess for a Day” create unforgettable memories.
