after many trips to resorts and hotels in dublin, london, and USA, it was amazing to stay in the dunloe - a true 5 star hotel with OUTSTANDING service and breathtaking views. the restaurant is terrific and we ate all our meals in the hotel except for one evening when we ventured out to a fish restaurant, in killarney which was very good, but simply couldn't compare with the silver service and extensive wine list that the restaurant has on offer. the serving staff mike and karina were attentive polite and efficient and put us at our ease - superb hospitality. the manager jason was always around and was happy to greet us with a smile and ensured everything was top drawer. we brought our infant son, and they provided a room with a lovely cot - and they provided babysitters in the evenings while we ate - the babysitters were local women who were terrific and were great value compared to london or dublin. Our son slept so well because there is no traffic noise and the fresh air from killarney national park is so healthy and relaxing. the pool is beautifully designed and our son was able to paddle on the steps. in summary the best hotel we have stayed in - truly 5 star but also a beautiful setting.
