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

Right I was last here in 1991. It was quaint, nostalgic, attracted (very discreetly) wealthy types, celebrities even royalty. Unofficial private visits that is and that is why it retains a take it or leave it policy. It was then shabby chic embued with history and it was The place to flaunt airs and graces. The management were like school... More

If you wish to be transported back to an era somewhere between the 1920s & the 1950s then you won't find a more authentic experience than Hunter's. This venerable spot is old fashioned in the best sense of the word. We love it & return for a few days regularly even though we live only half an hour away. Gardens... More

An aging, tired hotel that was once regal. The mattress sagged, the ceiling needed repair and the toilet never worked reliably. We were without the toilet overnight as we gave up waiting at 11 p.m. On the positive side, the grounds were wonderful. We enjoyed tea on the lawn when we arrived, and then strolled through the vegetable garden where... More

Hunter’s is more than a restaurant, it is an overall experience. Hunter's is the oldest coaching inn in Ireland and as such it should be special and to be honest it is. The hotel which includes an old style restaurant set in 2 acres of attractive gardens on the banks of the river Vartry in Co. Wicklow. It should be... More
