I had a voucher for Blue Book hotels and chose this hotel based on its location (not too far to drive for us). Have to say was a little worried when I saw the outside of the place but once inside the quirkiness of this great hotel comes alive. So different to staying in a modern hotel and much nicer... More

From the front the hotel doesn't look much but the minute you drive inside you can see the charming old world detail of the place - a well preserved coach house, quirky and very comfortable, lovely gardens and we had a fine meal at the restaurant. Excellent service and comfortable drawing room. It was pricey but very much well worth... More

I visited this place based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and I have to say that they don't do the place or the food any justice, u have to come and taste for ur self, I have been to many places and stayed in many hotels but for a place this old and classic I have to say that... More

Set in some of the nicest gardens in North Wicklow, Hunters is everything one would expect from an inn of this age and character. The dinner menu was quite extensive and appeared to offer value for the €48 euro a head tariff. Disappointingly, on the night we were there, it failed to deliver by quite some distance. The main course... More

This is a lovely little hotel. I often go here just to sit in the gardens and have a coffee on a nice day. If your going for food you need to book in advance but we'll worth it and good value set menu. Walking Ito the hotel is like walking back in time to the 1950s. This place is... More

Having lunch in Hunter's is like travelling back in time - back to a more genteel world and it's totally charming. The staff are welcoming and helpful, the food delicious and the surrounding gardens are a pleasure to stroll around. A perfect place to step off the treadmill of life...

I had the great pleasure of hosting my dear mother's 90th birthday at this absolute gem of a venue. From the moment the party of 23 guests arrived for Sunday lunch to the moment of our departure, we were looked after as though we were old friends (many of us had never been to the hotel before). Margaret and her... More

Staying at Hunter's was the perfect end to a holiday in Ireland. The room was spacious, the gardens magnificent, and the staff welcoming and accommodating. For example, they went out of their way to give us breakfast in the morning, ahead of the set time, so that we could leave for the airport in plenty of time. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were in Ireland on business followed by a few days of free time to explore this beautiful, inviting country. After a roadtrip to the Dingle Peninsula from Dublin, our "long and winding road" brought us "home" to the wonderful hospitality, delectable dining, and classically comfortable lodging afforded us by multi- generation owner Richard Gelletlie and his...

My mother and I stayed one night at Hunter's and wished we had booked a second night. We were blessed with good weather so could enjoy the lovely garden which was a bonus! The owners and staff were so friendly and welcoming and the food excellent. I would return next time in Ireland. My only small gripe was the pillows... More
