We have worked in the incredibly stylish Dromoland Castle a few times in recent years. It is a fabulous 5 star hotel in County Clare where the Manager, Mark is the ultimate professional; totally hands on and has always been a pleasure to work with.

So we were delighted when he told us this morning that they have just been named as one of the 2012 Fodor’s top 100 hotels in the world. We are thrilled for Mark and his team – and very pleased too that it was one of our images…
Top 100 hotels
.. that Fodor chose to represent Dromoland Castle.

This was a surprisingly tricky shot – and one where we had to wait several hours for the light to fade – which we talked about here: Capturing the atmosphere – but it was clearly worth the wait 🙂

Hotels with a noble lineage were all the rage this year, perhaps due to the world’s obsession with Will and Kate and the runaway success of Downtown Abbey. Monarchs, aristocrats, and cardinals have slept in our 13 Royal Pedigree hotels from England to Peru. These labyrinthine castle, grand country estates, and colonial palaces will cosset you like a globetrotting royal, too.

So a huge Congratulations to Mark and the entire team in Dromoland Castle for this prestigious recognition.

From Marie, Carl & me @

  3. Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
