You know, i have never written a review like this before, let alone responded to one already written, but i was reading the owner's defence of a review written earlier this year re a stay in dunbrody a copuple of years ago, and my thoughts were "oh my gosh, imagine having to deal with that onsite!".
We didn't complain because during our own stay there because there were too many things wrong. It was so over priced for what we received -- the idea of a "rapport qualite-prix" just didn't seem to factor.
You go away for a weekend with some friends for peace and quiet and some fun and relaxation, and you chose somewhere you think is special and you're a big fan of the chef, and then to get poor food and some terribly disinterested service, and all the other little things that were just not right -- you kinda just give up. You chalk it down and you concentrate on enjoying the company and perhaps take the revenge of the meek and laugh at being taken for a ride. Because life is too short you make the most of it and choose not to spend your time complaining but to pursue the good time that brought you there in the first place. But you don't go back.
I so wanted to love Dunbrody. I was such a fan of Kevin Dundon. I didn't want to leave feeling like i had been had but i did, alas
