My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our Ireland trip. It's a beautiful building set on expansive grounds and located out in the country about a 30 minute drive from Dublin Airport. The staff were absolutely wonderful. I emailed with a question in advance of our arrival and received a prompt reply from the Concierge. Check in was very prompt and we were given a lovely upgraded suite with a beautiful view over the grounds.
Breakfast in the restaurant was great. Lots of variety and good food. There is a pub on site where we had dinner both nights. Good food and drinks.
All staff were friendly, interested in helping us as needed and seemed genuinely happy to be there. Interesting in light of the fact that the hotel had just been sold and the new owners had announced changes including dropping the Ritz Carlton flag in favor of Marriott Autograph Collection. I think though that they did announce that all jobs would be retained which might account for the happiness (or relief) level of the employees.
The only nit I will pick with the hotel is that there did seem to be a bit of deferred maintenance visible around the grounds. Hopefully the new owners will address this although I must admit that it is a huge task given how expansive the property is.
All in all a great visit. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
