In County Clare, a short way north of Limerick, Dromoland Castle is one of Ireland’s most prestigious addresses. Entering its gates and following the meandering driveway through its pristine parkland, you’ll be transported back to the early 19th century when the current baronial country mansion was built.

Now a fabulous hotel, and recently renovated with no expense spared, its rooms include suites whose canopied beds look out over the lake, and spacious family rooms, while even the more modest rooms still feature lavish furnishings, modern luxuries and exquisite bathrooms.

The grandeur peaks in the public rooms such as the drawing room, cocktail bar and at the restaurant, the Earl of Thomond, a formal venue with a menu celebrating the best of local produce. The Fig Tree Restaurant in the Golf & Country Club is a more relaxed venue.

Elsewhere in the sprawling 450-acre estate, find a championship golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts, and space to pursue all manner of country pursuits from horse riding to archery, fishing and falconry.
