Although it is a pretty good drive and takes some time to get to the Dunbrody, the staff was very friendly to us and tried to make our stay pleasant. The hotel is in a pretty setting, and I was sorry we did not have time to go to the spa, as it looked quite nice. Dinner was very good, and breakfast was extremely good. At the hotel's prices, however, they need more staff to help with luggage and so forth as they seemed a little understaffed, and I had to go searching for someone to serve drinks in the bar and someone to wait on us in the dining room for breakfast. The one very strange thing is that when we arrived, there were bags of dirty linens sitting about in the hall as they had had a large wedding party there the night before. While I realize such situations must be dealt with, there should have been some plan to move such things out of the halls before other paying guests were shown to their rooms. What was sad is the very motley and dirty dogs lounging about on the doorstep. They certainly did not appear as they did on the website photos, and they did not present a good image for the hotel despite their friendly manner. This is a very good hotel which still has room for improvement.
