Dromoland Heads ‘Indo’ List

Dromoland Castle has been named Ireland’s Best Hotel in the Irish Independent Reader Travel Awards 2024, being praised as “class with a capital C”.

Members of the public have been entering their nominations for the prestigious award since 2017. An expert judging panel, including travel writer Pól Ó Conghaile, author Roz Purcell, and Fáilte Ireland's Niall Treacy, then selected the final winners and runners-up from voters’ favourites.

High praise for Dromoland Castle by voters honed in on the hotel’s hardworking team. “As beautiful as the grounds and castle are, it is the people that are the true beauty of this magical place,” one reader said.
