My husband an I spent a very relaxing weekend in Dunbrody House mid May 2015. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find we had been given an upgrade. The room was beautiful. I don't understand how some reviewers found the decor shabby - we were struck by how clean and plush the room and hotel in general looked. Often... More

If you want to get away and chill to relax, this is the place, we were there for one night (too Short) including dinner in the restaurant. We arrived early to make the most of the stay and after a stroll about we adjourned to "The Local", a bar with good food in a converted milking parlor, a little kitsch... More

Done an overnight stay here with evening meal and breakfast included. The area and scenery are lovely very remote and conducive to a relaxing break. Rooms are large but disappointing that there is no tea making facilities in room. Also even more disappointing is that we had requested a quiet room when we booked and again when checking in I...

Dined in the restaurant only. Evening meal @ €65 per person. Excellent attentive & pleasant staff. The place was warm and comfortable. I'm not a lover of the old country house experience but this one was not bad. The decor was a bit tired and the place could do with a facelift. The toilets were clean. Food presentation was very...

To celebrate my wife's birthday, she asked for a family lunch in Dunbrody bar / restaurant. I rang up ahead, to be told that there was no formal booking. Simply turn up on the day after 2pm and kids also welcome. I also made the date clear to the helpful staff. All fine & nice looking seafood menu. On the... More

Dunbrody is a beautiful house but it's more shabby than chic. Furniture in bar, lounge areas needs replacing or cleaning. Menus are either A4 page rolled up in a glass or a plastic coated menu. Beyond tacky. Cheap and nasty! Bar service is deplorable. So slow. You'd die of thirst waiting for a drink. Overheard a barman who answered a... More

Positives: Food excellent, work intensive dishes. Free range eggs delicious. The tablecloth napkins dazzling white. Room spacious and sparkling. Staff helpful and friendly. Negatives: rather small sitting room (though it had a "real" fire burning) menu unchanged the second evening we were there, though the bar menu was very good.

We had been looking forward to our visit. When we arrived we were asked pleasantly did we want to go to the bar or the restaurant. Being a little early we still decided to go to the restaurant believing we would order a little aperitif as it was our anniversary and we were spoiling ourselves. As we got to the... More

We visited in the promise of a wide selection of great food, the food we had was very good but the food not offered was what disappointed. My wife who is gluten free was left with very limited options for desert and breakfast; which given how well she is catered for elsewhere in Ireland this was way below our expectations.... More
