the Grounds of this hotel are beautiful. The drive way in is fab and the view from our room of the gap of Dunlop was truly beautiful. The staff were lovely and the hotel was finished to a high standard. The room we stayed in was average but everything else about our stay including the dinner was wonderful. It is an underrated hotel and definitely worth a stay

We could not speak more highly of Niamh, Jason and all the team at The Dunloe for how well we were treated throughout our wedding journey! From the first meeting, Niamh accommodated multiple visits, questions and amendments - they could not have done more to make us feel at ease with all aspects of the day. The menu tasting was one of the highlights of the run up to the wedding - the attention to detail and care that was taken with us was second to none. We had our photos taken in their beautiful gardens, which was such a bonus not having to travel anywhere else. So many of our guests complimented on the quality of the food and service provided. Throughout the entire wedding day the team were on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly- they really are experts. We could not rate The Dunloe higher!

We stayed here for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. My parents were given a complimentary upgrade as the room and view was amazing. We stayed in the family rooms and they were spacious and clean and loved the balcony. We had a gorgeous meal in the restaurant and spent the next day availing of all the hotels amazing amenities! We went swimming, fishing, did the fairy trail, playground and pony trekking. Staff were lovely and kids are really welcomed. Perfect hotel for a special occasion and family break and we can’t wait to go back

My husband and I cannot thank the staff of The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens enough for making our wedding day so special last August. Niamh & Jason were always available to answer any query we had due to the vast amount of knowledge, experience & professionalism they have. We had both our ceremony & reception at the Dunloe. We had a choice of ceremony location in one of the many beautiful private spots in their garden or indoors in one of their two conference suites. We had chosen an outdoor wedding ceremony however unfortunately the weather was not in our favour & Niamh had everything quickly rearranged the night before to the indoor setting as if it was always the plan! We were never nervous of how our day would go as we knew we were in such good hands. The Gin drinks reception was a hit with our guests as was the location it was held in. The views of the Gap of Dunloe from the first level & the incredible decor gave everyone something to talk about & take beautiful pictures. Our reception area was decorated beautifully and the wedding flowers that we had for our ceremony were delicately incorporated into our table arrangements. The food is something we must also remark on. It is hands down the best wedding meal that we and the majority of our guests have ever had. Our guests are still commenting on the menu and the flowing wine. The banqueting staff were so efficient and friendly which contributed to such as relaxed atmosphere at the reception. It was never an issue booking our wedding guests into rooms as the reception staff were so helpful & understanding. They have a good choice of rooms to cater to individual needs. (family rooms, twin, disabled access) The guest rooms and bridal suite were so comfortable & exceptionally clean. I cannot recommend this venue enough. We will be forever grateful for the memories The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens helped us to create. Rebecca & Tom 10/08/2019.
