“Just Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

We stayed at the Dunraven Arms Hotel as bride & groom, guests at a wedding and a regular guests one weekend - each time the hotel has never failed to impress. It ticks all the boxes!!

The Dunraven Arms Hotel is a superb wedding venue as well as the perfect spot for a cosy weekend away. Even though they host a number of weddings throughout the year, everyone at the hotel makes you feel so special, like you're the only couple they are working with while planning your big day. Both management and staff are extremely welcoming and willing to do anything to make your stay enjoyable. I consider myself a tough critic and I have to say the food and service also reach high standards.

The Dunraven Arms is family run hotel in the heart of Adare Village. It has lots of character and a lovely comfy feel to it. I think it is suitable for families as well as a retreat for couples. It has a good sized pool, fitness room and beauty salon.

The location is pretty nice too. Adare is just lovely. If you are planning a wedding and inviting guests from the UK or further afield, it's so easy for them to fly into Shannon Airport - just 40min drive to the hotel. It can't get any easier.

I look forward until the next time we can get out of Dublin and head southwest towards Adare!

We stayed one night while attending a family christening in the church next door. We enjoyed Sunday lunch in the restaurant which was delicious - it's not hard to see why it's so busy. Our large room which had a double & single bed overlooked the peaceful gardens & we enjoyed a great nights sleep. Breakfast was delicious - especially the fresh baked breads & scones, but unfortunately as service finishes at 10am we missed out on a lie in on Monday morning. I left a suggestion with the hotel to extend a continental breakfast until 11am which could also be offered to non resident guests as elevenses. Adare is a lovely traditional Irish village which we hope to visit again.

We found this venue to be over-priced for what we could only call average fare. In my line of business I have groups of people to entertain every so often from over seas' and would have dined at this venue reglarly in the past , however, from my last two visits, I left feeling deflated, service took too long, food was not hot like you would expect, but servers were so polite and professional and were so obviously aware that we were impatient during courses. This may have changed in the last two weeks as We have not been back. Sorry!!

Room Tip: Serviced with lifts to each floor

stayed for 2 nights for a conference - room was very nice, food was excellent (except for breakfast which was very poor with little choice). The old world ambience is slightly spoiled by the situation on a busy main road.
The free wi-fi is a good thing and there are lots of quiet corners. The bar does get very busy afternoon and evenings with lots of weddings and wakes. Service is friendly and reasonably efficient.

My partner and I were on our way back from a medical conference and thought we'd stop here for some lunch. We were both well dressed in suits. The restaurant was quite full but there was only one couple in the bar so we asked for bar food. We were turned away as we weren't residents. The kitchen was churning out food for the restaurant and there was plenty of space in the bar to sit. I can never understand this business decisions. They turned away money and also any potential return business.

We stayed in the Dunraven Arms in September last and were absolutely delighted with it. The hotel offers a wonderful combination of olde worlde charm and super but unobtrusive efficiency. There is a special ambience pervading the hotel. Food was excellent. Our bedroom was roomy, quiet with lovely linen. I personally enjoyed the little sitting rooms and gardens. I look forward to a return visit.
