We stayed here for 2 nights on our visit to Killarney and what a great treat it was. We were given a room with a view of the Dunloe Gap and it is a spectacular view. We went for a walk around the grounds and my wife spotted the horses roaming the fields. I spotted the river so we were both in our element. We went for a horse ride which is aimed more for kids but was a nice relaxing way to see the countryside. I went fishing in the river but unfortunately caught nothing. We had a lovely dinner there the steak was exceptional and so was the dessert. The breakfast was a buffet but the food was very good and an egg was cooked in the way you wanted it. The swimming pool and gym are also good and the glass lift gives a nice view on the way up to your room.

My son had his wedding reception at The Dunloe in September and what a spectacular venue it is. The hotel is luxurious, the grounds stunning and the staff treat you like you are family. We spent three nights there, ate all our meals there and were never disappointed at any stage. The wedding reception was first class, the food was memorable and the attention we got from the staff would certainly bring us back and I would be happy to recommend The Dunloe to anybody for a relaxing break but especially if you are planning a wedding. Well done to Jason and his staff.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have a lovely view of the garden but an even better one of the Gap of Dunloe

There isn't a better word or describe this hotel other than 'beautiful'!! We were upgraded to a suite for an extra €35 per night.... And it was amazing! We had a beautiful view of the gap of Dunloe and a very clean and beautifully decorated room. Pool and leisure facilities were quaint and clean- very relaxing. We dined in both restaurants and the fillet steak was to die for! Couldn't have been happier with everything, well worth the price you pay. Would recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: Avail of the offer to upgrade, you won't regret it!

A slice of heaven-Nestled amongst pristine panoramic view of the hills, streams and tall dark trees, acres of lush green grass, wandering stallions munching sedately at the grass, the Dunloe whisks you away to a whole new era. The hotel rooms are beautiful, and the view from the balcony as the myst comes down the hazy hills makes one think that one can pen poetry. It was a one night stay, would definitely recommend staying here. Dinner and breakfast was really good and the service impeccable. Highly recommended :)

Room Tip: Rooms with Balcony have great views.

My husband and i got married here on the 30 th august 2013 , from start to finish our day was flawless . We had our civil ceremony here in the maple room , with views that would take your breath away . Elisabeth looked after our day in every way possible , she went above and beyond for us . I would highly recommend anyone planning a wedding to consider the Dunloe highly . The setting , the staff , the location are none I have ever experienced before . We look forward to returning for our anniversary next year

We spent 3 nights at The Dunloe as part of a travel package and were delighted that the company had booked this hotel. Our "room" was actually a suite, which was spacious, comfortable, beautifully appointed. In addition, the grounds are spectacular, including pastures, woods, a lake, the ruins of a castle, and a lovely walking trail. We also had a number of meals there, and all of them were delicious. The staff was invariably cheerful, efficient, and eager to please. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good hotel in the Killarney area.
Our only reservation was the fact that the hotel is located 5 miles from Killarney, meaning that walking around the city itself was difficult, although a hotel shuttle is available twice a day.

The Dunloe was a delightful surprise. Our bus tour had been scheduled to stay in the city, but some circumstance caused us to need an alternate. The Dunloe is very luxurious and comfortable, with lovely, fascinating grounds. We stayed here 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. This was the best night's sleep ever!
