An old coaching inn that feels like a country house. It is only hour from Dublin but feels as though it is in another time and place. This is not a chic ultra modern hotel but a comfortable and pleasing break from the modern rush. Enjoyed a dinner with local produce with caring service. Breakfast was a lovely choice of... More

Hunter's Hotel is located 2km from Ashford, Co. Wicklow in the middle of nowhere which was its first attraction for us.It claims to be the oldest Coach Inn in Ireland and I have no reason to dispute that. We travelled there today on the recommendation of a friend for lunch. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining.... More

Stayed here for an overnight with my husband recently. First impressions were a bit disappointing. This really is an old hotel and I feel needs a lot of TLC, however my husband disagreed and thought it was grand the way it was. The food however was excellent as were the staff. The breakfast was the best we've had in a... More

My wife and I stayed here in mid August. What a gem of a hotel. From the beautiful food at dinner and breakfast to the comfortable and well furnished bedrooms, this hotel is worth a visit. The staff are courteous and helpful in the extreme. We ate dinner every evening of our stay and the food was just delicious. Take... More

We unexpectedly found ourselves in Wicklow with three young children in mid-August and needed a hotel room immediately. This is not an easy task at that time of year. Many hotels seeing we were stuck would have taken advantage but Hunters assisted us and at a very reasonable room rate. Hunters has a slightly faded but delightful grandeur. The bathrooms... More

A beautiful boutique hotel tucked away on a little country road between Rathnew and Ashford. A really tranquil break as there was no Wifi or music in the hotel. The only entertainment was the TV in the room. A lovely place to switch off and relax. The garden is beautiful and a lovely place to spend some time. Margaret and... More

My husband, daughter, and I stayed at Hunters Hotel after leaving the amazing Royal Dublin horseshow. A short drive from Dublin made the hotel the perfect place to embark upon our tour of Eastern Ireland. The ambiance!!! The gardens, the river, the stone bridge, the delicious food,(much of it from the garden) the flowers, birds, tables for tea or coffee... More

Hunter's has been managed for 200 years by the same family. Beautiful gardens, and the atmosphere of the past throughout the hotel made our family reunion really special. Stayed overnight and found the bedroom room very comfortable and spacious. Food in the dining room was excellent
