Client Comments:

Although Glin Castle is not as famous as some others, I have to say that their staff treated us like royalty......and the food was well worth the price. It was amazing!! Dromoland was much more regal, but it didn't have the charm surrounding it like Glin Castle. ~ Elaine & Michael E. 2006
