My wife and I had lunch in Hunters today. Before lunch we visited the extensive gardens which are beautifully maintained. We had a drink in the very comfortable lounge before going to the dining room. The lunch was excellent and very reasonably priced. The menu was varied with excellent choices of starters, fish and meats. The overall service and presentation... More

This is a hotel which is a great throwback to yesteryear. The rooms are old, but clean with crisp linen. Hot water bottles in the bed at night after dinner and great dining room and wine list. Out side, the time warp continues in a great way with old cobbled courtyard and several walks around the premises. Go once and... More

There are times when you want to gather family and close friends and spend precious days together. For peace and beauty I cannot think of a better place to take them than this. Hunters Hotel is a charming country house to the south of Dublin, with delightful gardens by a bubbling river. It has been owned by the same family... More

Visited recently for dinner on a Thursday evening and we had a superb dinner served by excellent staff. The dining room was quite busy and from the moment we arrived in to the bar until the time we left we were looked after very well by all the staff. The food was excellent with plenty of choice on the menu.... More

We took my husband's uncle and aunt to dine at the Hunter's Hotel a couple of days ago. They've travelled extensively and have very high standards. They were over the moon with the quality of the food and the exceptional service we received. Every mouthful of the lamb and duck was exquisite and so tender. The vegetables were from their... More

Hunter's is an wonderful experience. The gardens, the grounds and the building full of history and antiques make this a place we are already planning to book our next stay. The staff are so good humoured, professional and nice. Again the garden is amazing. Well done to everybody!

Stayed in Hunters Hotel one night. While the building and the rooms are VERY old...it is full of charm and very quaint. The gardens were simply amazing...you'll feel like you are at your Grandmother's home. The dinner was the big surprise---true comfort food and very yummy! Just a perfect place to unwind and rest before heading into crazy Dublin! Spotty... More

Went here to relax and what a way to unwind. We spent most of the time there sitting out in the lovely garden. Even though there were loads of kids there, the set up is such that you won't even notice they were there. The dinner is proper Irish fare. All I can say is you won't go hungry. The... More
