Wheelchair accessible Programme:
Traveling with Wheelchairs in Ireland
In recent years traveling in Ireland has become much easier for wheelchair users.
If you are traveling to Ireland by air you won’t encounter any problems: your wheelchair will be transported in the plane’s hold. You will be brought to the air plane in a special wheelchair. It is easiest to travel with an ordinary wheelchair. With wheelchairs that are battery run the battery has to be disconnected. Special arrangements must be made traveling with smaller aircraft. For further information please contact the specific airline directly.
The Outing Festival & Inn at Dromoland are well-equipped for wheelchair users. We are on hand to help in anyway to make your stay and festival experience even better.
We also have a team member who is part of our queer & disability community plus an amazing comedian too. Meet Our Team Here
The Inn at Dromoland have several adapted accessible bedrooms available on a request basis. In addition to this every single guest bedroom in the hotel is accessible via lift access. The main lobby, Shannigans Gastro Pub, Deerfields Restaurant, Ballyhannon function suite and the leisure centre are all located on the ground floor with no stairs required for any of these hotel amenities. A number of disabled car park spaces are also available immediately outside the entrance of the hotel. If you have any further enquiries feel free to encourage you to call the hotel directly and their front desk team will gladly assist.
