Guests staying at Dromoland Castle in Newmarket-on-Fergus, Ireland, will feel like royals, thanks to the recent renovation of the hotel’s Queen Anne wing. Completed in May 2015, the renovation updated 28 guestrooms, each uniquely designed and decorated to seamlessly blend old-world charm with contemporary comforts. The new rooms are outfitted with bespoke wool carpets (sourced from Europe’s top design studios), wallpaper by both Zoffany and Osborne & Little, and upholstery designed by the French fabric house Pierre Frey. Appointed with cottage-style decor inspired by 18th century botanical drawings, the Dromoland Castle rooms also feature striped or floral wallpaper, vintage furniture and white headboards with ornate details, and fancy tassels on silk curtains. Large windows offer sweeping views of the walled garden and surrounding landscapes. Elsewhere in the hotel, 11 East Wing suites also were revitalized, with crystal chandeliers and plush furnishings, adding sophistication to each room.

Originally built as a defensive stronghold in the 16th century, the Gothic-style castle was transformed into a luxury hotel in 1963. Today, the Dromoland Castle hotel contains a five-star restaurant, a spa, a championship golf course, and an impressive roster of activities that includes falconry, fishing, horseback riding, and clay shooting. Conveniently located near the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands, and other Irish attractions, Dromoland Castle provides first-class lodging for anyone seeking a wee bit of Irish charm.
