A lovely, old world hotel which is outstanding. I would definitely go back. The room was excellent. If you are interested in gardens Mount Usher is only a mile away and is well worth a visit. The breakfast was well presented.

This is the real deal. A charming old coaching inn with uneven ancient squeaky floor boards, chintz fabrics and odd shaped small and old fashioned rooms. It is genuinely like something trapped in time. It feels like it should feature in an Agatha Christie story and that it would be entirely appropriate if it were populated by doubty elderly ladies...

The hotel has been in the family for several hundred years. They take a pride in preserving the superb atmosphere from days in the past when pride, professionalism, and personal attention were held in high esteem as a natural part of the establishment. You can feel it from the moment you walk through the door and meet members of the... More

I have been coming here for years and I love it now just as I loved it the first time I visited in the 80's. The great thing is it hasn't changed. It has unique charm and personality. It takes hard work to achieve this result and is far from neglected as I have read a couple of times below.... More

For years I have loved going to Hunters, it is a true family run hotel, and has been in the same family for five generations. Both management and staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is to much trouble for them. How to describe Hunters? Peaceful and atmospheric certainly but there is also that special something that comes from being... More

I love Hunters, just do not get there enough. Not for you if you need the buzz and slick service of a city hotel. Hunters is quirky, comfy and a place to relax in. Food great, bar well stocked and service old world quality .. But slow. However that's not an issue as you have mellowed just by being there.... More

Delightfully creaky old inn with stunning gardens where you can enjoy your afternoon tea. Always a pleasure to return to this haven of constancy in an ever changing world. Our family has been going there for generations to celebrate special occasions & each one lingers in in the memory.

I love this old world inn, it's like stepping back in time. This was my first time staying there although I had been for drinks and dinner a few times. At this time of year the garden is magnificent and an extremely pleasant place to have afternoon tea. My partner and I both needed to unwind and our brief stay... More

Stayed in Hunter's for a short trip to Wicklow. This really is the real deal when it comes to traditional style inns. Very quaint with an old courtyard that leads onto a lovely garden. Had a a great dinner and slept like a lord. Highly recommended.

Like stepping back in time when we stayed in this little Country Inn. Charming cosy bedrooms with comfortable bed. Wonderful home cooking- dinner was excellent with friendly service. Most amazing gardens to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility.
