Charming country house with lovely gardens. The black velvet flows very smoothly by an open fire place in the great hall. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is interesting with home made bake bean. Staff are very helpful and charming. You will enjoy your stay at this fine establishment. I certainly will return!

Myself and my husband stayed here Valentines weekend. It's a beautiful house the rooms were huge the staff friendly and accommodating and the food in the lovely old world style bar was gorgeous and very reasonably priced. The breakfast could have been better, it was a bit cold and didn't seem that fresh but otherwise we had a really lovely... More

Hotel in beautiful setting with landscaped gardens, very peaceful and tranquil. Arrived in afternoon with our large group (56) who had travelled from early morning and looked forward to an early dinner as we were off to a Dublin theatre that evening. From the time we were seated it took 40 minutes before our starters arrived with a considerable wait... More

This wonderful house is located at the end of a long avenue, a welcome separation from the real world outside. The staff greet you on arrival with effortless warmth and charm. The rooms are very generously proportioned, clean and modern, while retaining the atmosphere of days past. I would highly recommend this place for anyone really, as staying in a... More

We enjoyed a lovely night in this old house in Wicklow, staff were friendly and although the dinner menu was quite limited, the food was great, the breakfast was very good too. The rooms were recently done up and the house is full of history. We got good value for money and I would go back here again.

I have just returned from a weekend at Tinakilly and have to say that it was just brilliant. The hotel is beautiful, the service is excellent and the quality of food is superb. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel very welcome and couldn't do enough for us, without being intrusive. Our room was lovely, full of... More

Went for dinner there 3 weeks ago. Checked beforehand if they catered for vegetarians could they post me out the menu which they did after the second call. On the evening of the dinner I asked for the vegetarian menu but nothing happened. Had to order what they had which was Mushroom Risotto. It was dreadful our opinion was that... More

Didn't think much of the reservations staff at this establishment. Didn't return my call. Didn't cinfirm my reservation. Didn't help me at all in fact. I would have liked if they had shown a little interest in me rather than been totally bored by me. Wouldn't return here in a million years. With all the lovely surroundings outside their doors...

Tinakilly is a lovely old building set in nice grounds. Service is at best poor. There is never any consistency when it comes to their food, I've had the same dish 3 times over the period of a Month and it has been differently prepared and presented each time....surprise is not always good when it comes to food! However, the... More

We loved the atmosphere, relaxation,which we remember from a previous visit whch was about 15years ago. Lovely fires in all reception rooms, very friendly staff. Lovely dinner and breakfast no critism, but we had to ask for jam at table, which very helpful waitress brought but felt it should have been there. We definitely hope to revisit. Actually can't wait... More
