We stayed here for our first night in Ireland. Everyone was nice from the beginning and very accommodating. We checked in early and stayed around for some food and drinks. We liked everything we tried in regards to drinks, food, and desert. Although, we missed the breakfast, given the atmosphere, I'm sure it would have been lovely. The pool and...

The hotel/conference center is build around a small 'castle' that appears to be used only as administrative offices. The rooms are nicely appointed but not ornate. The dining room, like most of the structure is contemporary in design. The Irish breakfast buffet is a tasty variety of breakfast fare (don't try the scrambled eggs unless you like 'egg soup'.....too much...

Although no castle in sight, a lovely hotel. We had a massive room, very clean and warm (the weather was unseasonably cold) and a fantastic breakfast in the morning, as much as you wanted, really good pastries as well as the full English (or would that be Irish?), if you wanted. The hotel was actually really close to town, so...

We stayed for two nights and had a great weekend. All the staff where so friendly and helpful. The rooms are a really good size with a bath and shower both in the bathroom.

This is my second stay at Dunboyne Castle and I was again delighted with my stay. The staff throughout make this place special, with the bar staff particularly attentive.

Stayed here for 1 night recently and have to say that I was impressed. This is a fine hotel set in beautiful grounds and close to the village of Dunboyne in County Meath. It was very busy during our stay as there were families attending communions but this did not detract really. Nice foyer and bar area. Nice staff. Spacious...
