We stayed here in mid-June 2013 and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is, of course, top quality as one would expect from a Ritz-Carlton property. The hotel grounds are magnificent. Our room was quite grand and spacious. The view was great, including the life size chess board outside. The area around the hotel is quite stunning as well. There are the gardens and waterfall not too far to visit.
The hotel is a great destination hotel especially for events such as weddings and, in fact, there was a wedding during our stay. We might not have noticed except for the loud reception and party outside our window and what we suspect were very loud guests in the room above. I'd expect the rooms to be a bit more soundproof.
If you are looking to be close to eating establishments or commerce this is not the place to stay. It was at least 20-30 minutes (if you don't get turned around) to any sort of commerce. We may try a place closer to Dublin next time but that's a matter of preference for us.
If you're looking to get away and have a romantic, secluded holiday this is a great place. We were just on a regular holiday and wanted to be a bit closer to commerce.
