“Comfortable but noisy all night long”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

The staff are great and the room seems new and is very comfortable. The restaurant and bar downstairs are hopping...all night long. There were two sets of ear plugs with other toiletries in the bathroom for good reason. Even though our room was at the end of the hall, you could hear noise from two different night clubs thumping away when we went home at 1am, and there were still noisy people outside on the street at 6am the next morning. With the window shut and ear plugs in, we slept fine (even though it was hot). There is a lovely breakfast downstairs in the morning.

Room Tip: There are feather duvets and pillows in the room so ask ahead if you have allergies. Tea is availab...

I really don't know were to start with the Dinn Ri Hotel, from our arrival at the hotel we were treated absolutely great! From the food to the staff to the rooms everything was spot on. We enjoyed a 2 night stay and we really enjoyed it not one complaint would I have for this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms were spotless :)

Just home from a hens party we had in the DinnRi. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left all members of staff were so accommodating they couldn't do enough for us. It's very rare that every single staff member are very friendly. That includes the hotel staff, bar staff, the restaurant staff and night club staff.

Food in the restaurant was faultless.

Overall a great friendly atmosphere.

Well worth the money and I will definitely return.

Thanks DinnRi :)

We didn't stay in the hotel we only dropped in for one drink. The bar and toilets were very clean. They have a heated smoking area. The bar food looked appealing, didn't see the prices. I say the place would be buzzing in the evenings but we were here at lunch time. It's a large pub with lots of levels.

Hi there,
Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for your positive comments about Dinn Rí. As you suspected, it certainly is ‘buzzing’ in the evening time at Dinn Rí. We do hope that you can visit us again sometime and experience it first-hand :)

After spending years going out in Carlow my friends finally left me in charge of arranging accommodation and they are so happy they did! We checked in and the receptionist was lovely and couldn't have done enough, when we went to the room I was so impressed, it was warm, cosy and very modern, the shower was amazing - a good hotel can always be judged by it's shower.

We went down to get something to eat in Dinn Ri bar and despite the fact that it was jam packed the staff were efficient friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The food was also very reasonably priced with a great 2 or 3 course menu available with a good bar menu to suit everybody.

After a few drinks off we went to the nightclub had a few drinks and a dance and then back to the room, despite the warnings of noise we didn't hear much even though the club was still in full swing.

Anyway guys thanks for the great night, hope to get back soon. Keep up the good work!

Dinn ri bar is very nice food looked lovely but as far as staying at the dinn ri,( DONT ) im not fussy but its not a hotel dont now how they can call it a hotel,waiting 15 min to be checked in then you go up the lift only 1 floor takes ages you come back to hotel at nite then your expected to knock on windows to get the attention of the small old man who is quite nice but he seems to be doing every job, we were out in the cold 10 min before we got his attention by banging on windows, should be at least a bell you can ring or give you a key to enter....rooms were grand plus a nice shower but they need to sort out a few things first before id consider staying there again....
