Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dunbrody is a special place. We stayed there 20 years ago and we revisted in February 2024. It's still exceptional. From Tearena at the front desk, Sandra at dinner, Pat at the Local, Majella at breakfast - it's obvious they're all good friends and a great team. Led so professionally by Debbie and Harry at the heart of it, even the newer members of staff behind the bar are so personable. They make you feel so welcome and at ease on a busy Saturday night or a quiet Sunday night. The food is amazing, from fine dining in the Harvest room followed by cocktails on Saturday night to the best fish & chips at the local (while watching Ireland play Italy - with pints), both perfect. We plan to make the another booking in the next year (and not wait for another 20 years!). Colm & Michele

We spent 2 nights @ Dunbrody and had a marvelous time. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by great hospitality and excellent staff. Our room was very very spacious and really comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and the quality and presentation were superb. As we were attending the cookery school on the 2nd day we were advised to book the local (onsite pub) for dinner on 2nd night and it was very good advise as we had a great day cooking and eating an exciting array of dishes prepared by Julien and ourselves. Again the food and service in "the local" were fantastic. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.

Meal was extremely disappointing, had to return mine. Don't mind paying for quality but this wasn't it. Our waitress was unable to open wine, so I came to rescue. Tv in room not working, no shelves in shower for . Headboard on bed loose. Very disappointed overall.

We had a really enjoyable stay, though unfortunately only for one night, last month. The staff were all very friendly and the dinner in the main restaurant was everything we had anticipated. The hotel was kind enough to upgrade our rooms (there was a birthday involved) so we had a lovely view over the gardens. We particularly liked the old-world decor and furnishing, and the rooms and corridor were so warm despite the cold weather outside. Just one suggestion: if travelling from Cork it makes more sense to take the ferry crossing at East Ferry, which saves over an hour of driving. However the directions on the hotel website don’t mention this (and we weren’t informed of it when we phoned in advance to ask the best route). In fact we were only told about this shortcut by a member of staff when we were leaving. It would be a good idea to put this alternative route on your website. We hope to return and very much recommend this hotel for a relaxing stay.

This is a beautiful hotel with real, old world charm, it's also refined and sophisticated. The staff are wonderful, and the room was very comfortable. The only quibble was that the food in the Seafood bar was good, but not great. The seafood pie was bland (a little bit of seasoning wouldn't go amiss..) and the sirloin steak was a little tough and chewy. However, breakfast was fantastic and easily the best we ever had. I have already booked our next stay there

Had an amazing weekend stay in Dunbrody Country House. The whole experience was fantastic from the moment we arrived to the moment we left and we couldn't recommend it highly enough for a proper great escape!! We were warmly welcomed on arrival by Trina who checked us in before showing us around the beautiful house and then to our room. Such a lovely welcome, Trina was so friendly (and we were treated to a free room upgrade!). We ate in 'The Local' the first night. A beautiful little pub on the grounds with a limited menu and classic 'pub grub'. Pat the barman is a real character with lots of stories and you could tell he really enjoyed welcoming people and keeping the place warm and cosy - the wood burning stoves were a treat! Our second night we spent in the main restaurant and were blown away by the quality, freshness and choice of food (and wine) on offer. The restaurant itself, the house and grounds, all the staff and the service overall was the best I have encountered for a long time. Keep it up!! Only sorry we didn't get to bump into Kevin to say hello but enjoy watching his Instagram videos and nice to see the 'set' in person!

I recently visited with my wife to celebrate her birthday. It was our first visit and we were blown away by the beauty of the house and surrounds. We were made feel so welcome and the staff couldn't have been more professional and friendly. The food was delicious (as expected). It was a most relaxing and enjoyable experience from start to finish and we look forward to returning in the future.

We had a lovely few days here. The food is, as expected, superb, but what we really loved was the friendly atmosphere. Harry, Debbie, Majella and Pat all took the time to chat and make us feel at home. There are some great walks and lots to see in the area nearby, and also across the river on the ferry to Passage (€2 return!).
