“Nice Hotel in a lovely location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Spent one night in the Dunraven Arms while on business in the locality.
The room was a excellent but was disappointed that there was no bottled water, tea making
facilities or bathrobes provided.
Had dinner that evening in the restaurant which was first class and the service excellent.
After an excellent breakfast enjoyed a walk around the beautiful village of Adare.

Having driven through Adare many times this time we decided to stop! it's a beautiful picturesque village full of charm. We got a lovely warm welcome and were shown to a spacious room that looked out over the well maintained gardens. The bathroom had everything we needed, was spotlessly clean and had a nice little dressing room leading into it. However there were things missing that one would usually find in a four star hotel, no comp bottled water or newspapers, no teamaking facilities, no kingsize bed, no robes or facecloths- the little things that make a difference between 3 and 4 star. The breakfast was lovely, and the dining room was packed to capacity on a Sunday morning in March, but if you want dinner be prepared to pay e26 +12% for a plate of roast beef! So 4 star prices and 3 star amenities in my opinion.

We paid a return visit to Dunraven Arms in March 2013, having always been very pleased
on previous occasions. We were always given a complementary upgrade to a suite and this
added to our enjoyment. However, on this visit, we were accomodated in a standard room.
As a couple, we required a double room, but our room consisted of a double bed and single
bed which made the room rather cluttered. We would have preferred to have
a second arm chair that an unneccesary bed.
These rooms appear to lack bathrobes ( subsequently supplied on request ). No bottled water
either. Our dinner in the restaurant was only average compared to previous visits.

Room Tip: A suite is the best option but works out expensive.

Having been born 10 miles away I never went to stay in the DunRaven Arms. Now sixty years later and a long time away I booked the Dunraven Arms special offer 2 nights b/b and 1 dinner 99 euro
wonderful welcome,beautiful room breakfast ask what you can have apart from buffet great home cooked ham but fish to order and porched eggs and bacon.
Walk the walks have afternoon tea in the Dunraven Arms and a game of golf if you have the time.
The shops and boutiques in the town are worth a visit tell her you didnt bring your credit card.

Room Tip: a garden view at back of hotel

Was at a wedding and the food was really good, its not big plates of food but portions of a cut above the rest, the staff and service were top notch. Its great to be able to have a quick stroll out into the village as you are right in it.

The biggest plus in this hotel is the staff from manager down to cleaners. Any requests we made were dealt with promptly we were greeted with a smile everywhere we went in the hotel. Staff training must be a priority in this hotel and it shows at all levels. The hotel has lots of charm and feels very homely. The breakfast was adequate we asked for omelettes and they were first rate. The staff at meal times were relaxed and extremely helpful nothing was any bother. The managers helped with evening service and this helped things flow smoothly . The hotel was very busy with weddings when we stayed but there was plenty of staff and no delays in service at the bars. We stayed in a junior suite and it was very comfortable and spacious spotlessly clean and serviced properly.

My girlfriend and I just spent one night at this fabulous hotel. We booked at the last minute and when we arrived we were given an upgrade to a suite which was magnificent inside. A four poster bed and a huge bathroom area. The breakfast has a wonderful selection. The hotel is situated in the middle of Adare village so you have easy access to everything. I cannot wait to return.
