We booked a two night stay in dunbrody with friends and were looking forward to a real treat - having heard so much about it. We got a lovely welcome from the staff and enjoyed a complimentary cocktail sitting out in the garden in beautiful sunshine. Our rooms, the breakfasts and service were all wonderful - but the biggest let down was the dinner on our first night. Food was only ok - certainly not to the standard of a top class restaurant. Kevin Dundon was not in the kitchen that night - and I wonder did this impact the quality of the food. The beef had no flavour whatsoever and the vegetables offered were little potatoes with pieces of cabbage mixed in - presented in a copper pot . We didn't eat in the restaurant the following night - and had a most wonderful meal in a local pub/restaurant - The Hollow. Would highly recommend that. The chefs in dunbrody could learn a thing or two from the chefs in The Hollow.
Pity - as the house is lovely and otherwise had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Kevin is lucky to have such good staff running the house while he is not there - but needs to pay more attention to the kitchen staff.
