The Dunraven Arms Hotel is in the lovely town of Adare in Limerick. It is right on the roadway which has an awful lot of traffic heading south but you never seem to notice the noise. Most of the bedrooms seem to be at the back of the hotel which helps, our room was nice and quiet.
The hotel has an old world look and feel, nice bar, which has a good atmosphere in the evenings, and our room was very spacious. However I was a bit disappointed that for a 4 star hotel that there was no tea and coffee facilities in the room, nor was there any bottled water, nor was there a mini-bar. I would have expected all of these items would be standard fare for 4 stars. There was wi-fi but I couldn't get a signal in my room until I went out into the corridor and stood under the antenna. Nor could I get a signal in the bar or the lobby. I noticed other guests complaining of the lack of signal.
There was a good bathroom but the shower is integrated in the bath, not separate. There is a laptop size safe in the room. But no bathrobes - you can ask for them at reception.
The leisure centre is fine, tucked away down the end of a long corridor.
What brings this hotel up to 4 star rating is its location in quaint Adare town and the food. The breakfast is adequate but dinner is 4 star.
And the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Overall the hotel is good value but a little lacking in the goodies you expect in a more modern 4 star hotel. I would say it is more suited to couples than kids too.
Drop in to the church next door which has a beautiful interior and the garden across the road which is beautifully kept.
