This year, Dromoland Castle is offering a new way to make Thanksgiving extra special by offering a safe, socially distanced vacation with loved ones in one of Ireland’s most beautiful and historical destinations.

The 450-acre private estate in County Clare is majestic in the fall and it’s also the perfect time to visit popular tourist spots such as the Cliffs of Moher, which will be crowd-free in November and only a 35-minute drive from the Castle.

Getting to Ireland

As of July 19, fully vaccinated U.S. travelers can travel to Ireland without quarantining. Visitors will have to show proof of vaccination. If unvaccinated, tourists will need to show a negative Covid test and must self-quarantine before taking a second test. Unvaccinated children between the ages of 12 and 17 will be required to have a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival to travel into the country, unless they have valid proof of vaccination or recovery. Children of any age, traveling with accompanying vaccinated or recovered adults will not be required to self-quarantine post arrival. However, where one accompanying adult needs to self-quarantine, then all children must also self-quarantine.

About Dromoland Castle

Set on 450 acres of parkland with 97 rooms and suites, Dromoland Castle dates back to the 16th century when it was home of the O’Brien family, whose lineage dates back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, one of the last High Kings of Ireland. Converted to a hotel in the 1960s and fresh off a $20 million renovation and restoration, Dromoland Castle exhibits the best of its regal Irish heritage.
