When I first reserved this hotel I was hesitant due to the fact that is a 20 minute ride from Dublin City Center. About an hour by bus. However, that turned out to be the best part of the trip. We were there for 8 days and most every day we would take a cab into Dublin to see the sights or take a tour (Blarney and Cliffs of Moher). But every night my wife and I would finish our day on the hotel patio drinking a pot of tea or having a coffee. We would spend a couple of hours discussing the day and enjoying the peaceful evening. This is an excellent hotel mostly because the staff is exceptional. They are always friendly and eager to help make your stay the best it can be. The on site spa is damn good. I arranged for my wife to get a facial/massage package and she really enjoyed it. The lady that took care of her did an excellent job and was extremely knowledgeable about her craft. The dining was very good and the waitstaff very attentive and professional. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the town of Dunboyne. It’s a small town with a few places to eat. We ate at O’Dwyers, it’s a family style pub with great food and cold Guinness! I highly recommend this hotel and I look forward to returning in the future.
