Which historic hotel is one of the most famous Baronial Castles in Ireland?

If you guessed Dromoland Castle Hotel (1014) in County Clare, Ireland. The castle is one of the most famous baronial castles in Ireland. It was the ancestral home of the O’Briens, Barons of Inchiquin, one of the few native Gaelic families of royal blood. They are direct descendants of Brian Boroimhe (Boru), High King of Ireland in the 11th century, renowned for his defeat of the Danes in 1014. The present castle was constructed in 1835, but the first building on the land dates back to the 15th or 16th century. At least three houses on the land over the years have existed and were all called Dromoland. The word "Dromoland" translates as “Hill of Litigation.”
