Visited here last weekend for a special family celebration, while it was nice I had expected it to be a unique and special dining experience and unfortunately it did not live up to that expectation .
While the staff were in general pleasant , the food was good , not great .
We had travelled a couple of hours to get here but weren't really hugely impressed . Overall nice , but no wow factor here !

Stayed: October 2013

Just back from this amazing hotel & I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms. This place is a must visit. We stayed in the Lodge & it's like stepping back in time to the 50's but with all the creature comforts of today. There were 25 of us in total spread out across the facility but all converged for dinner at once. The food is stunning, served promptly and is a taste sensation. Matt the barman is the most patient human I know! Well done the Dundon's!!!

To say a big thank you to Paul, Robbie and all the staff at Dunbrody for a wonderful twenty-fours hours staying with you. All staff without exception, were so very friendly and attentive. Paul, even when I was nosey and peering into the kitchen, you very kindly invited me in, thank you. I ordered, for my main dish that night, monkfish - Robbie, it was to die for, thank you so much. I treated myself to a massage which was heavenly, from Laura. What I loved about this aspect of a treatment session, is that it is seperate from the house and nobody is walking around the house in a dressing gown - which I hate and would actually turn me off going to a place where clients go to the Spa area through the hotel/house.

Looking forward to a return visit

Yours sincerely
Anne

Room Tip: Booked into a superior room and upgraded to a junior suite, so spacious - no noise what-so-ever

We visited Dunbrody for an afternoon and enjoyed a lovely lunch.
Service was excellent. Everyone went out of their way to be accommodating. The food was served in good time, was presented very well, in good portions and very tasty. And don't even talk about the deserts.
And if you have time, the grounds are just lovely and worth a look around.

I brought my wife here for a birthday present. We took advantage of the dinner, B+B package. This was excellent value. We had a great stay from start to finish. On arrival we were upgraded in our room. The room was beautiful and was true in maintain the character of such a country house.

We went for a drink before dinner and took our time examining the menus prior to going to our table. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and good. The dining room was full and this led to a very good atmosphere.

Breakfast again the next morning was excellent, we both went for the full Irish breakfast.

Looking forward to returning.
