“Beautifull setting”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We had a fantastic stay here for two nights 17th and 18th November. I was attending a wedding and it was just superb. The staff are really friendly, from the welcome at reception to our goodbye at check out they were great. It is a wonderful venue for a wedding, the atmosphere was just great and the food amazing. I needed to get a taxi to nearby Enniskerry but it was going to take 30 minutes, the receptionist told me she was going off duty in a few minutes and would give me a lift - where else would you get that kind of service?
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay and look forward to seeing you again.

Stayed at the Summerhill House Hotel for a 1 night girlie spa break. Was a perfect break from beginning to end, the Spa was quaint and we both enjoyed the hot tub on the deck after our treatments. The food for dinner and breakfast was outstanding, best breakfast I had in a long time. The duty manager Emma is a real asset to the hotel, so friendly and welcoming. We will be back...

The wedding of the year ? Great day from start to finish , What a wedding ceremony ! Excellent!! Spectacular ! The approach to the entrance to this hotel is hidden by lovely foliage and a sight never to forget when first glimpsed . Then greeted by a glass of wine and a riproaring fire welcomed the Bride and Groom and party to this beautiful hotel in a Gorgeous setting ( Adjacent to the famous Powerscourt estate no less) with specatular countryside views . The Meal was so that all tastes were provided for with no fuss or to do ! Waiters and waitresses galore > no waiting between courses and all delivered with professional courtesy. The dining room was magnificent and provided ample room to allow for a band and dancing until the early hours of the next morning, Drinks on the go and food provided if and when necessary. then up to a bedroom that had all the necessities at hand. Quiet and peace allowed for a lovely nights sleep,

A beautiful Hotel in a beautiful countryside setting with stunning views. There is a beautiful Spa beside the Hotel and you can get fantastic packages to incorporate treatments and beautiful food at an amazing price and everything is top quality. The staff are friendly and helpful and Enniskerry Village is just a stones throw down the road where you will find some lovely shops and pubs.

Stayed here recently overnight with my boyfriend for a wedding reception. We both agreed that the venue was beautiful, very tastefully and elegantly decorated. It's a quaint, lovely little hotel set in what must be one of the most beautiful landscapes you can find in Ireland. Enniskerry village is a short walk away and is also nestled just in front of Powerscourt House and Gardens. Location-wise, you couldn't ask for a more picturesque hotel and grounds for a wedding reception.

You can see the management put a lot of effort in keeping the flavour of the original hotel itself intact. This place is full of character, perhaps that is much of where its charm lies. It isn't huge, but this works wonderfully to create a feeling of intimacy and a romantic atmosphere. The gardens and hotel facade itself worked beautifully for photos for the bride and groom, as well as the guests. The rooms are comfortable, if a little small and modestly furnished. The views from our window were spectacular. I can't fault the service received at the hotel, the staff were very attentive and polite. I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the main dinner turned out to be, and the buffet breakfast the following morning was thoroughly appreciated!

I would definitely recommend this place as a nice weekend break away, either with a special someone or with a few girlfriends down to the rainforest spa (which unfortunately I had no time to try, but that always leaves me next time! :)).

Our daughter's wedding was held on the Sunday of the October Bank holiday weekend in this hotel and we cannot thank the staff and the management of the hotel enough for the wonderful care and attention to detail and the really friendly staff to whom nothing was "too much trouble" which greatly added to the wonderful location with its roaring fires,excellent food, beautiful function room,so much so that we hardly noticed that the weather was wet and windy.
The whole wedding experience was a great success with both sides of the families joining up and celebrating the occasion in an amazingly friendly atmostphere with a wonderful team of people to look after them. Very well to done to all the wonderful people at the Summerhill House Hotel you were first class.

We held our wedding reception in summerhill in november 2010 and as a surprise anniversary gift my husband booked a return night stay this year.

As with our wedding day, we fell in love with the place all over again. The staff were incredibly friendly with the night manager on duty even remembering us! This level of service for wedding parties is so rare and really makes this hotel special! Our dinner was amazing, we ate the beef and monkfish which were delicious. A special mention to the waiter who was most polite and unobtrusive despite us being the only guests in the dinning room at that time!

Some of the reviews on trip advisor mention areas which require attention in the hotel but I feel this is a country house and all the faults make the place all the more endearing. It is a beautiful house with wonderful open fires, cozy corners and stunning location!

Thanks summerhill for making our stay special and remindings us all over again why we chose to have our wedding here!
