The bar and resturant were excellent as well, the main dining room faces south and The Dunlop Gap, the view at breakfast was breathtaking. Staff was as polite as they come, helpful and courteous as can be. The historic Dunlop... More

We recently had our wedding at the Dunloe on September 16th 2016. I can honestly say I do not have a single negative as the venue and the staff on the day were simply out of this world.
