Summerhill House Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Enniskerry
Reviewed 17 July 2014

One night stay during a business trip...so how bad can it be....?

Well, it was fine. A nice older victorian-maybe house, not grand but pleasant... a bit overdone with the seaside-landlady nick-nacks everywhere, but OK. Slightly down-at-heel, the paint was peeling and the carpets a bit threadbare... and the weirdest room numbering system ever. The ground floor is the second floor, and the third floor (or first floor in my book) had rooms 300+ and 500+ whilst the fourth floor (third floor really) had rooms 400+..... I bet there's a reason, but it isn't obvious... doesn't matter perhaps!

I had to get them to turn on the power on my floor (4th) and fix the wifi (free) and there was no tea in the room.... but otherwise OK. food was of a reasonably priced but limited menu and the breakfast buffet was very good. My room was 99 euros which felt a bit on the up, but then Enniskerry is regarded as the prettiest village in Ireland.... I can neither confirm nor deny this claim, as I saw it only whilst driving away the following morning. It certainly is in a very nice area indeed.

booked the summerhill house hotel as a base for exploring the wicklow mountains and surrounding area.

had one of the courtyard rooms,which was clean,modern and comfortable,if a little on the small side.
en suite room with excellent shower,good selection of complimentry teas and cofffees,room service at no extra charge.
my only gripe would be the promise of free wifi.wifi was free but very temperamental throughout the hotel,worked one minute,wouldnt the next,very frustrating.

buffet breakfast in the morning was very good with a good selection of cooked and continental items to choose from

Room Tip: make sure you have a good data connection,as the wifi is very hit n miss

I was little disappointed with my stay.. when we arrived our reservation was only for one day.. ambience setting not nice.. no music ..skeleton staff in evening.. reception not manned most of the time.. We could have been anybody eating in the mornings..no one took our name.. lovely place but lacks personal touch.. One helpful lady at reception and one friendly lady at breakfast.. hotels should go out of their way to help u but in this case very disappointed

Dear Melanie,
Thank you for your review. Our apologies you did not receive the personal touch, expected in from a traditional country house hotel.
We really do try to commit our service levels through-out our guests entire stay but on this occasion this was not the case.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Was here for the wedding last week of my partner's son. Everything was just perfect, the venue, the staff, the food, the accommodation, were absolutely first class. I would recommend it wholeheartedly and without reservation as a wedding venue, or as a base for a visit to the Wicklow area. Powerscourt House and gardens are just across the road, and Dublin City is a short drive

Room Tip: Best rooms are probably along the corridor past reception. (200's)

We stayed in the Summerhill House Hotel recently on a bed and breakfast basis with evening dinner included. What a charming place. On a lovely sunny evening, we sipped a glass of red wine in the garden in front of the hotel for an hour or so before dinner. Our starters were Caesar salad and poached pear and goats cheese salad with wallnuts. Both were very nice. I then had roast beef with all the trimmings while my wife chose the salmon. Great food which we followed with desert and coffee. I could not find any fault with the food and the wine we had complimented the dinner . We booked a double room but got a suite instead, a nice touch. Ouroom was superb and breakfast the next morning was great. Overall I would rate this hotel highly, say 9.5 out of 10. We will return to Enniskerry soon and the cost at 150 euros was well worth while. Lovely spot with immense charm.

Room Tip: Go mid week for better value. I dont think they had enough staff on to cope on the evening but thats...

We got married at the Summerhill House Hotel in May and had what can only be described as The Best Day of our Lives, shared with all our family and friends. The hotel staff made us feel that they'd known us forever, the food, accommodation, the environment and the location are excellent and create an atmosphere that can only enhance a day as special as this for any wedding party. The party started on the Friday and some were still there on the Monday. Every bit of it ran well, and benefited from the attention to detail by the staff, and the care and professionalism that went into the preparations and execution on The Big Day. Maybe 'execution' is the wrong word to use about one's wedding day? We wish the hotel and anybody that would use it for a wedding all the best in the future and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Get married and you get the best one!!

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel as wedding guest. Very warm and welcoming staff,
Lovely grounds, great area , minutes walk from Powercourt and about 10mins walk from Enniskerry village.
Food very good, very friendly staff more than made up for faded decore. Courtyard rooms small but adaquate and very clean,although walls thin so could hear normal conversation from next room.Good value for money.

Room Tip: Check for rooms in house , might be bigger .
