    Default Kerry, Dromyland Castle

    Could you help me? I found the sentence: If you want gracious, you should head down to Kerry, go to Dromyland Castle.

    (it is about Ireland)

    My question are:
    Kerry - is it County Kerry in Ireland or just Kerry - a person, a woman? Dromyland Castle does not exist in reality, there is only Dromoland Castle which is in Country Clare. Then, is it possible that Dromyland is a surname?

    Than you so much.

    In a novel - I suppose Dromyland Castle may be fictitious.

    Yes it's fictitious. "Kerry" is "County Kerry". Dromoland Castle is, as you say, in County Clare.

    So, I should undersstand like that: If you want gracious, you should head down to County Kerry, go to Dromyland Castle. Right? And according to this sentence, Dromyland Castle should be in County Kerry?

    It is saying that (the fictitious) Dromyland Castle is in County Kerry, and you should go there if you want "gracious". What is the title of this novel?
