Luxury hotel Dromoland Castle, dating back to the 16th century, has completed a renovation project. With the help of Irish Georgian Society members, the management updated the property’s infrastructure while maintaining its historic look.
The refurbishments took over a year according to Mark Nolan, Dromoland Castle’s managing director. The improvements touched the building’s guest rooms, bathrooms, dining and lounge areas, public spaces, spa and indoor pool. The property introduced new golf carts and created new pathways. The hotel installed a new water treatment system, refurbished the windows and fixed the stone façade.
The hotel’s updated guestrooms now feature a modern palette with contemporary Irish fabrics, custom furnishings and original artwork. Dromoland Castle hired Joseph Brennan, an Irish painter, for the guest room artwork, creating unique, Celtic-inspired paintings for each room. Large windows allow for plenty of natural light during the day and chandeliers drive out the dark in the night.
The castle, originating in the 16th century, was rebuilt in 1836 and opened as a hotel in 1963. The property offers 97 guest rooms, its own Dromoland Castle Golf and Country Club, a spa and variety of outdoor activities.
Dromoland Castle can be found near Newmarket on Fergus in County Clare, Ireland. Guests can reach the property with a 15-minute drive from Shannon International Airport. It provides easy access to the Wild Atlantic Way, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Galway, Limerick and more.
