We have just spent 5 lovely days at Tinakilly, such a fantastic location (close to Dublin and the lovely Wicklow) with fantastic views. A beautiful old house hotel keeping all the character of the period it was intended to be lived in!! Fabulous atmosphere with music and fireplaces burning in the back ground of each room. We stayed with two... More

Left work in Dublin at 4.30, was in Tinakilly by 6. Guinness good, food excellent, accomadation a bit quirky, but clean and comfortable. Great spot to chill out after a weeks work, Accomadation was only €100 for the two of us for the night, not much more than getting a taxi in and back from town.

Never stayed at Tinakilly but had many enjoyable meals here over the years. Latest one was on Easter Saturday. Out on a drive in Wicklow we dropped into HUNTER'S HOTEL for lunch and were treated in the most unwelcoming fashion by an elderly, sour woman (proprietor? or just a grumpy waitress who has obviously neither manners nor training) with a...

Had a memorable and beautiful stay at this splendid, clean and non-pretentious establishment. Our free bag of crisps after our first cuppa of the day made us feel that this was not a rip-off, even though we didn't pay much for a top notch deluxe 4 poster bed and very large room. The Argentinan red wine was far too easy... More

Stayed here recently as a birthday treat. Rooms were lovely and spacious and had fabulous views of the Irish Sea. We could not fault the cleanliness of the rooms. But unfortunately that's where the positives end. Service was very poor - badly trained and inexperienced staff running around but not very effective. The food was awful - overcooked, poor quality...
