This is a really lovely place to stop for a tea/coffee, or check in and explore County Wicklow. Located just off the N11 from Dublin to Wexford or Rosslare Port, and easily reached by following the signs for Rathnew and Wicklow Town. We live near Enniskerry in North Wicklow and this is one of our favourite stops if we are... More

We had afternoon tea and it was fab! The service was great, and the tea was delish. At first I thought it looked a bit small but it was in fact the perfect amount. The hotel itself is lovely, beautifully decorated and full of history. The staff were very accomodating with our picky children!

Tonakilly is a marvellous retreat and a great location for day trips around Wicklow. The antique furniture, interior decoration and gardens of this grande mansion create a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. The building could do with some renovation, but then again it has charme. The freshly made scones and marmelades for breakfast were delicious and the choice and quality of dinner... More

Top quality! Have recommended to friends & will be back. Beautiful food, friendly staff. Rooms were unique and spotless. We had a lovely walk through the grounds. Would be ideal for a wedding. Great service throughout our stay. The four of us had a wonderful stay.

Before I traveled in July and since I returned I've watched with interest the many enthusiastic reviews submitted.Perhaps I'm the odd one out but I've to call it as I find it. We were on a 3 day break with a suite, the room was not too clean with a lot of dust on window frames and a broken lampshade.... More

Our experience at Tinakilly was overall lovely. It is very well located for hikes and country walks. The interior is overwhelming incl restaurant, bar and living room. The same goes for the bedrooms. Dining was great - sophisticated, local delicacies. Unfortunately our waiters did NOT share the chef's passion - a bit dull and unimpressive. Th bartender was knowledgable and... More

We stayed for an overnight stay with dinner on arrival. Meal was very good indeed. We retreated to bar for couple of drinks before bedtime. One barman to attend to a very busy bar! Felt so sorry for the guy in question. He was running around like a headless chicken trying to please everybody against all the odds! The bar... More
