*Update for guests staying during the Women's Irish Open (Week starting September 19th 2022)*
We are thrilled to announce that our sister hotel Dromoland Castle will host the Women’s Irish Open golf tournament from the 22nd-25th September. The Inn is located on the grounds of Dromoland Castle Estate with the golf course in our immediate perimeter, so it’s great privilege for both properties to have been confirmed as the chosen competition venue for 2022.
There will be an incredible buzz and atmosphere around the hotel in the lead up to and during the tournament so we're sure that all of our guests will be delighted to witness such a unique event throughout their visit. The spectator tented village with an array of food and beverage outlets, will be located on the grounds of the Inn so some of our outdoor children's facilities will not be in operation for a limited period in advance of and during the tournament. Our dining outlets and leisure club will continue to maintain open throughout. Despite expected large crowds on a daily basis our guests will experience the same warm welcome and high standards that the Inn always provide!
