World-renowned Dromoland Castle, located in Newmarket-on-Fergus, County Clare, was built in the sixteenth century. Majestically set on the shores of Lough Dromoland, the castle is surrounded by over 410 acres of breathtaking scenery, including a championship parkland golf course.
As a wag once said, "Under certain circumstances there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as Afternoon Tea," and Dromoland Castle certainly presents those circumstances. Served in the Gallery with its cozy fireplace or out on the terrace near the old castle entrance, Mrs. White's Afternoon Tea includes a wide selection of piping hot teas accompanied by a delicious selection of freshly baked pastries and breads. It's the perfect setting to while away an hour or two with family, friends, or a good book.
Dromoland Castle offers an ideal setting for gatherings large and small, from fairytale weddings, to organized golf weekends, to family reunions. A mere five-hour flight from the eastern seaboard of the U.S., the temperate climate and many fascinating and entertaining attractions of southwest Ireland ensure that every guest will bring home memories to last a lifetime.
