Stayed here last weekend to celebrate an aniversary. It was my second time staying here and I was equally wowed both times. The grounds are gorgeous, the room was lovely and the spa was perfect. The best part about Dunboyne though for me was the staff, Micheal in reception went above and beyond to make our stay really special and... More

We stayed here on a special deal for my birthday, Sunday 19th July till Monday 20th. The hotel and rooms are outstanding in comfort and services. We had a lovely massage included in our deal and it was one of the best I've ever had ! Pity about the evening meal though, we were served scallops that were cold and... More

Booked a one night stay after a late flight into Dublin Airport, Everything was 1st class from checking in, to the room, breakfast and the spa. Highlight was the fancy TV and outdoor hot tub. Will definitely stay again!

I treated my pregnant wife to an overnight b and b with dinner in a junior suite. During booking I arranged chef's special smashed chocolate to be in the room for my wife as a treat. This was not there on arrival. Room: spacious, 2 toilets, lots of seating, great tv and clean. However no biscuits or fresh milk. Spa:... More

Enjoyed a one night break with spa treatments to relax and de-stress. I found the staff from hotel reception to spa therapists welcoming and friendly. The spa has a great range of treatments and special offers are available for guests of the hotel. I left feeling refreshed and plan to visit again.

Stayed here as part of two couples with 3 children ranging in age from 6 months to 2. We had spent the day in Dublin Zoo and the day after in Tayto Park. The hotel is far enough from Dublin to avoid some of the costs, but misses nothing on the frills. The setting is gorgeous and the balcony bar... More

Enjoyed a night away with pregnancy spa treatment & 3 course meal. My friend and I really enjoyed our stay. We found the choice of food on set menu to be limited but what we chose was lovely. I found the bed & pillows to be very hard compared to previous visits to the hotel. Perhaps they've been changed? This... More

We had a lovely time here, we arrived early to make use of the spa and grounds. I spoke to Grace at reception briefly, and she advised me that we could check in, this was around 1pm. She was extremely friendly and helpful, and gave us a late check out next day until 1pm. Food and service was very good... More
