Set in 450 acres of parkland in the peaceful Clare countryside, the sprawling estate has much to offer. The gardens, which are based on designs by Andre Le Notre who also planned the gardens at Versailles, include a formal rose garden and a lily pond dating back to 1812. The castle overlooks Lough Dromoland, a renowned spot for for trout fishing. Deer, pheasant and other wildlife roam the grounds surrounding the castle, creating a natural ambience.
Within the estate, you can also enjoy falconry, archery, boating, clay pigeon shooting, tennis, walking and mountain-biking, amongst many other activities. The 18-hole championship golf course is a par 72, slope 126, measuring 6845 yards. The course, which was redesigned by Ron Kirby and the late JB Carr, is both thoughtful and challenging with many unique features and truly breath-taking scenery.
