My wife & I had a most wonderful night away at hunters, it had buckets of charm & old fashion customer service. On been shown to our room(9) & lighting the open fire in the very spacious room, to the turning down of the beds when we arrived back after a wonderful meal. The topping was to find hot water...

In a world where everything is standardised, homogenised, marketed and packaged- the Hunters Hotel is breath of fresh air. All of the furniture is good quality mahogany which has seen better days but it is totally comfortable. We had afternoon tea which was served with grace. We had cress, tomato, salmon sandwiches, freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and whipped... More

Didnt stay at the hotel but was recommended to visit. We stopped on the Saturday for lunch in the restaurant and had a wonderful meal. This hotel is like an old country house , all wooden floors,rugs, comfortable chairs and open burning fires. You would not be surprised to see Miss Marple sitting there. Staff have the personal touch and... More

My wife brought me here for my birthday. We had room 15 and there was an open fire turf & coal in the room to welcome us. It had just been lit so we went and had a pint of Guinness by an open fire in the bar and read the papers for an hour. What a pleasure that is.... More

Just spent an overnight in this lovely hotel, Was staying with a group of 6 but had my own room. First impressions were really good in that there was no hotel formality - just a very genuine welcome and sign your name and address into an old fashioned register. The house has a lot of old charm with fresh garden... More

I picked here as I really wanted an open fire in a bedroom experience and Hunters did not disappoint. We had room 17, the fire was on when we arrived and had lovely arm chairs to sit by the fire and enjoy a glass of wine. While we were at dinner the fire was replenished, our beds were turned down...

Very accessible to Dublin and a lovely location. The food was very good and the relaxing attitude of the staff was great. Rooms reflect the age of the hotel and although you are only 30 minutes from Dublin, it seems a lifetime away. Quirky and well worth a visit for the food alone. Lovely little bar and a separate drawing... More

We stayed here many times before but not for some time until last week. We'd forgotten how unique this hotel is. From the moment we were shown to our room with a real fire lit on our arrival, we were sent back in time. Dinner was simple, tasty and prepared with care. Then drinks in the bar afterwards (also by... More

We visited the restaurant at Hunter's Hotel just before Christmas... Ticked in the lovely Wicklow county and surrounded by sheep farms, this inn has been under one family ownership for over 200 years. After sharing a hot whiskey before the fire we were seated at a beautifully set table in the dining room... My lamb's liver and bacon was delish.... More

A good friend from Ireland introduced us to this wonderful classic hotel. Near the end of November we stopped in for tea. We sat in a sitting room in front of a classic fireplace surrounded by antique furniture. Everything was wonderful and it was the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. A classic piece of history... More
