Wonderful relaxing overnight in this little gem right on my doorstep. Highly recommend a visit to Dunboyne Castle. Very friendly professional staff, in particular Tina on breakfast. The spa is so relaxing with lovely fluffy towels and a very inviting relaxed atmosphere. We dined in the Ivy Restaurant and OMG the food was superb, fish cooked to perfection, good portions... More

Again our time at Dunboyne Castle was delightful. It was a working trip and the accommodations were perfect for overcoming some jet lag and catching some much needed sleep after busy days. We had wonderful meals and my need for gluten free products was always honored. The hotel has all the modern conveniences of a contemporary hotel with that added... More

A fantastic relaxing weekend in Dunboyne Castle. On arrival friendly reception staff set the positive tone, Thank You Roy! The restaurant was excellent with some lovely presentations, loved the wild halibut. Wine list was good and I attach a photo of the Italian Barbera D'Alba that was very drinkable! The rooms themselves were comfortable with good sized bathrooms. TVs were... More

Dunboyne Castle hotel is a really good hotel, with plenty of Celtic Tiger influences. Our room was spacious, and spotlessly clean, and the bathroom had separate shower and tub. Beautiful grounds, fantastic restaurant and excellent spa. And now for the issues....... Both myself and my partner have different mobile phone carriers, and neither of us could get a signal in...

Arrived at the hotel on Saturday afternoon for an overnight stay. First impressions were that it looked like a hotel rather than a castle. Room was nice with great bed and clean. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was a let down. Menu descriptions sounded delicious but dishes just weren't executed well and lacked flavour. Service was... More

Beautiful hotel and grounds, lovely for a nice stroll after the amazing breakfast buffet. Choice for breakfast couldn't have been beaten and couldn't be nicer. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice but not as good as some hotels we have stayed in, but to be fair it was all good just not exactly chef standard on... More

Last stop on our Castle tour........we arrived around 630pm and there was no one to help with our luggage. There was only one person at the reception desk. He was friendly. Our first impression of this Castle was ....it looks to much like a regular hotel. It did not have the vintage feel of the other 3 castles. I was... More

Did a 4-"castle" tour of Ireland with Great Vacations. This place suffered by comparison with the others. Certainly not a castle, but a good modern hotel. Common areas fine, room spacious, well-appointed and clean. Service very good. Room service was good (and reasonable..order off regular menu and pay only 5e extra). Location the best thing about it--great for us--easy drive... More

Easy check in at 3pm. Lovely large clean bedrooms, with big beds for a twin room. Staff were pleasant and helpful where possible. Food was lovely both at dinner and breakfast. Spa area was quiet and relaxing though busy. Treatments were enjoyable too. The only negitive was; the lobby area was busy at 2pm due to some event, so we... More

Lovely hotel ,inside and out . Very classy and spacious rooms and indeed the hotel in general ,with lovely grounds. The Staff are very friendly and helpful . The hotel is about 15 or 20 minutes from Dublin airport and is in a quiet picturesque village . An all round good choice . You won't be dissapointed .
