Dromoland castle, Clare county, Munster
With ay history stretching back to the 5th Century, Dromoland Castle was originally the ancestral home of one of the few families of Gaelic Royalty; direct descendants of Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland.
Now a luxury hotel, approached by a meandering drive that passes acres of magnificent lawns, this Irish Castle Hotel overlooks its own Championship Golf Course and a glistening lake which commands the panoramic beauty of the surrounds.
The first building constructed at its site was a 15th or early 16th century tower house and is recorded as being erected by Thomas, the son of Shane Mac Anerheny. The present building was completed in 1835.
