New Year celebrations at a real castle

CELEBRATE the New Year in style at Dromoland Castle, County Clare and experience a five-star fairytale at Ireland’s most distinguished and historic castle hotel.

Located near the delightful city of Limerick, Dromoland Castle is easily accessed from Shannon International Airport and with great flight deals available from eight UK airports*, there has never been a better time to explore this stunning part of Ireland.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat, a relaxing spa getaway or an action-packed family break there’s something for everyone at this elegant hotel, set amidst 410 acres of magnificent rolling scenery with meadows, immaculate lawns and a picturesque lake, providing a perfect backdrop to your special New Year celebrations.

For a New Year’s Eve to remember, dress up to the nines and enjoy an evening living it up in style at Dromoland Castle’s New Year’s Eve Gala Ball, which includes a black-tie gourmet dinner with fine wines from the castle’s extensive wine list. Guests can also enjoy the resort’s cocktail reception and fireworks over Dromoland Loch.

For the perfect ‘morning after’ remedy, enjoy a reviving stroll around the idyllic estate or choose from a variety of outdoor pursuits including golf on the Ron Kirby-designed course, horse riding, cycling, clay pigeon shooting, archery, falconry, fishing and boating on the nearby lake.

Or, if your idea of New Year’s Day nirvana is a day of sheer pampering, you’ll love The Spa at Dromoland, with its exclusive products from the 100% organic Irish Voya range and the chic Anne Sémonin collection, plus an extensive treatment menu including the Gaelic Escape signature treatment - a deep release full body massage incorporating a blissful hot stone back, neck and shoulder massage.

Enjoy a lazy afternoon relaxing in one of the castle’s elegant reception rooms, all of which feature period fireplaces, antique paintings and exquisite furnishings, and you can indulge in Mrs White’s afternoon tea – a long-standing tradition at Dromoland – which includes a tempting selection of freshly baked pastries, piping hot teas and coffee, all served by friendly and attentive staff.

The Dromoland Castle New Year’s Eve package costs £270** per person for one night including accommodation in a Queen Anne bedroom, cocktail reception and gourmet dinner at the New Year’s Eve Gala Ball with full Irish breakfast.***
