We stayed in Dunboyne Castle recently but overall a lot of little disappointments added up to one big one. We were on a Pigsback deal but I did not feel we got a good deal. The voucher was for 1 nights accommodation with breakfast and evening meal, the evening meal menu had very little options with a supplement for steak.... More

spent one night here. lovely grounds, comfortable accommodations, courteous service Helpful to have a car. Not easy to get into Dublin by bus. Not much for food options outside of the hotel. If looking for a respite from your touring, nice place to stop.

Stayed for 2 nights recently and we had a lovely room, however the wait to get meals/drinks served in the lounge area and the Ivy restaurant was atrocious. Waiting staff are completely disinterested and waiting 20-30 minutes just to get the drinks from your food order. 45 minute gap between ending a main course and dessert is ridiculous. Dinner in...

Dear reader, Firstly don't expect to be staying in a Castle, it is a very contemporary hotel attached to an old estate house which is not for residents to use at least it wasn't during our stay.

Great location as you think you are miles from anywhere, Dunboyne itself is a 10 minute walk away. Very good facilities, the spa especially so. Clean spacious rooms, great food in the restuarant and very friendly staff made for a great break break.

Lovely setting with good sized rooms and good amenities, but only for winter. Rooms are as hot as Hades in the summer with no chance to ventilate thanks to "safety" windows. Leave the window open a crack and you realise that you are on the early morning flight path to Dublin airport. Restaurant is good but beware, they only serve... More

Service and check in was very prompt on our arrival. What I didn't expect was for our room to be on the "1st floor"... in which is the bottom. Not much for a view at all. But the room was clean, and kept clean through out our stay. The grounds were very nice and managed professionally. If you are planning... More
