“Best sleep of Ireland trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

I stayed just one night in this hotel (last minute booking based on tripadvisor reviews) but it was the best sleep I got in Ireland. Since my other hotel was much more expensive (the Merrion), that's pretty impressive. The location can't be beat if you're traveling in this area as Adare is a cute little village with quite a bit of available shopping and sights to see in the area. I was able to book a junior suite for a great rate through booking.com on tripadvisor's check rates feature - 50 euro less than other sites. While the hotel may be dated in some areas, the room was huge and comfortable, the staff were friendly and solicitous, and the included breakfast had a large selection of both hot and cold foods. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in County Limerick. For me it was the end of a day on the Ring of Kerry before I headed back to Dublin.

We stayed last weekend and had a really lovely stay. Food was excellent and room was huge with 4 poster bed and sitting area. The hotel has small private sitting rooms which would be perfect if you had a small group looking for somewhere private to gather. Staff are all handpicked and give an excellent service. Really lovely hotel and well worth a visit

Ok I Need to be fair here, the staff were very friendly. ok that's said and it is clean!.....now..... I'm afraid this place brough up images of a nursing home, perhaps it is the random seating area's cornered off with the sort of walls and glass you see in nursing homes. Our rooom was of average standard - we were in a Junior Suite, but it needed a bit of TLC. There were grease marks from other guests heads on the four poster bed head rest, and when we arrived our pillows had no covers so we had to ring reception for some. Also for a price of 155 euro I was surprised to see that there was no tea making facilities. I really found it hard to justify what we spent......

Location is lovely, but all in all we did expect a lot more from this place, perhaps it was something special back in the day!

Room Tip: my mother stayed in a room that had newer furniture so ask for one that has been recently updated.

We visited the hotel and ate in the hotel bar. We took a seat and waited quite a while until I decided to go and fetch the menus myself. We had delicious fish and the service was very good.
A very relaxing atmosphere and lovely food.

We went for the first time in 2010, and were so blown away by the friendliness of everyone, let alone the brilliant pricing, and delicious food that we have since been back twice more in one year. We as a family usually like to try new things, but this is the best place for a romantic break, to a family holiday. Could not recommend it more.

Room Tip: All brilliant

We were married on 1st December 2011, I'm sorry I have not had a chance
to write before. From the very first day we went out to the hotel after
getting engaged to make enquiries to the day we checked out after our
wedding we received the highest level of service, were made to feel so
special, and no request was too big to deal with.
With living over here in the UK and planning a wedding in Ireland it was
at times quite nerve racking, but the one thing we never had worries
about was our hotel and reception.
All of the small touches in the run up to the day and on the day itself
mean so so much, I could write for pages listing everything out, but I
have never come across hospitality to rival it.
All of our guests were made to feel so welcome. Most of our Irish guests
were already well aware of The Dunraven's fantastic reputation, but our UK guests
in particular were blown away by it all.
I cannot find the words to express our gratitude for how the hotel looked
after us on our special day
