As we were in the area we called to Dunbrody for lunch. Beautiful country home, extremely warm and inviting on a cold January day. Having had a late breakfast it was too soon for a full lunch but told too early for bar food which was not being served until 3 pm. We were informed that only soup and sandwiches were on offer and just as we told the waitress we would go for that another waitress arrived with said soup and sandwiches so we were getting them away - lack of communication I think. The soup although tasty was a fairly small portion and the sandwiches of which there were three each were open on brown bread with more lettuce than anything else. The bill arrived and we were each charged €20. I'm sorry €10 for said sandwiches and another €10 for a small bowl of soup is not what I expected to pay. I love my food and have no problem spending money on it but most of all I expect value for money and don't like the feeling of being ripped off. Was really disappointed with this and was sorry we hadn't spent the extra €20 for a full three course meal in the diningroom which would have been much better value. Staff were lovely.
