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.

We had dinner there last weekend and to say the least were very disappointed with the experience. As a lover of old historical hotels the state of this hotel is not acceptable for a guest. We parked in the courtyard and the first thing you notice is that the windows badly need a coat of paint. Then, on walking in... More

My husband and I had dinner at Hunter's Hotel on our recent trip to Ireland. We were both happy to have eaten there. I had the lamb and my husband had the salmon, both of which were extremely flavorful. The goat cheese tart was inspired! The service was impeccable and the dining room was quite elegant. Overall it was an... More

We've stayed in Hunters a few times and used to enjoy it but our last trip didn't live up to expectations for one particular reason. I'm not sure if someone new is managing it but, if the manager/owner is reading this, we had the superior room with the fireplace above your 'Private' room on the ground floor and let's just...

We stayed 2 nights and being a bit “out in the wild” we had a dinner package. We had the most beautiful (and big) room with a view of the garden. Breakfast is very nice and a perfect way to start the day. Coffee is excellent. Before dinner you can have a drink in the lounge/bar where you also go... More

Returned to Hunter's for a short break to see the beautiful gardens at their best. This is a unique old place. There is nothing quite like it left anywhere in Ireland. It has survived the ravages of the boom years to retain its charm as a genuine example of an old inn. We had a very comfortable room overlooking the... More

What an awful place to stay!!!! kerb appeal zero. Perched on the edge of a bad bend on a busy road, faded, dated and nothing like the photos that wowed us on their website. We actually drove past it twice we were that uncertain of it being the correct place. Parking in the style of a clean farmyard, with the... More

Thought this place was a very nice find. Yes it's old. Full of character and hospitality. The food was great and the service was also very friendly and attentive. Not far from Dublin / and not far from the main road - but once there you could be in the middle of nowhere. Recommend but maybe not for all.
