We stayed on 22 April the dinner menu was limited to 4 options the black sole was overcooked the duck was so tough I couldn't cut it. Breakfast was boring and not that fresh. We were very disappointed with the food, very friendly serving staff.

Had a lovely overnight stay in Dunbrody recently. The staff are very welcoming and the house is beautiful. That was a nice surprise, I hadn't expected the house to be as nice as it was. The grounds are lovely and definitely well worth a stroll around. The so-called local pub was great for a drink too. Overall dinner was lovely.... More

The Dunbrody experience is one of relaxation and indulgence. The rooms are generous and comfortable, the staff welcoming and helpful. The dining room and bars serve top class food. Great area for scenic drives.

Our Easter Sunday lunch was delicious, the menu choice was sufficiently varied and balanced, the size of the portions perfect (by the end of the meal one felt just right - not too much or too little). A great address for a special lunch.

Website sample Sunday lunch menu lists 5 starters, 5 main courses and 4 dessert choices. Actual menu on Easter Sunday had choice of 4 starters, 4 main courses and 3 desserts so we felt a little short changed as the menu was limited enough at €35. Hotel has a lovely location and the garden was a delight of daffodils, rhodedendrum,... More

Just back from a two night stay in Dunbrody. Excellent Room. Food was just to die for. We had the rib on the bone to share and it was perfect. We had our meal in the bar the second night and the steak and hamburger were equally as good. Have been staying here on a number of occasions and we... More

We decided to recreate New Year here, as I to cancel the real new year, due to illness. Now, 3 months on we are having a really lovely time at this absolutely beautiful old country house hotel & spa. The cooking school stands on its own merit & is very successful. We arrived quite late but we're assured that the... More

We stayed here for two nights last week. From we arrived until we left staff couldn't do enough for us. We had a lovely bedroom with a lovely view of the garden. Downstairs bar and restaurant had lovely fires burning which added to the homely feel. Food was delicious. Only quibble we would have is we would have liked tea... More

Just back from a delightful weekend break. The warmth of the welcome goes throughout the hotel. A beautiful room overlooking the gardens with a comfy bed. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent as was breakfast. Everything is relaxed and a lovely way to get away from it all. The Local is a must for the food but mostly for the... More

The overall experience was quite disappointing. This was an overpriced and underwhelming experience. The most disappointing aspect was the food. Having selected the duck from a limited menu, I was very disappointed by the quality of my food. My complaint to the manager fell on deaf ears. I would not recommend Dunbrody house to my friends, and would not visit... More
