Historical Traveller Reviews of Dunraven Arms Hotel
Not bad little disappointingfrom Deardee
The room was spotless and stylish, with frequent maid service. The restroom was huge and well thought out. The hotel is several hundred years old--and quite beautiful--but has been well updated. The staff is beyond courteous and friendly.
An added feature is the full service gym. The gym was the best we found in Ireland, with several cardiovascular and weight machines that many locals pay a monthly fee to use. The hotel also has a spa and olympic size pool. Guests have the option of hiring a personal trainer or to obtain a massage.
Another benefit is the town of Adare. This is a very charming village with thatched roofed residences, and very little tourist buses. Very peaceful and pretty, and a couple of good restaurants.
This was the wrong choicefrom hopktown
Fantastic hotel - so relaxingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Fresh linens --- Fresh winefrom NJtraveller001
Unfortunately, it was also situated with a view of the main thoroughfare.
We ordered a bottle of 2003/2004 wine for dinner. When the wine arrived I took a small taste and it seemed a bit off. I took a closer look and realized it was a 2005, I pointed this out to the maitre'd, his response "we just received a new batch". I certainly wouldn't have expected this hotel of all places to serve a 2005 bottle of wine; especially with a price tag of 28.50 euros. Then the rib eye, which I ordered medium rare, arrived well done. The bouillabaisse my spouse ordered consisted of a chunk of fish and a couple of mussels. The restaurant was dissappointing.
at its worstfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Visit one - Paid in advance (surely contrary to consumer legislation) 130 euro- room 11- walk out if you're offfered it - not enough room for lockers beside beds- view of pub kegs - manager smug/arrogant and com[pletely unreceptive to our complaints - serious managment training needed.
second stay - paid online 260 euro for room only(again paid in advance). room adequate - they called it a suite - nothing to get excited about!!! On checking out they charged an additional 30 Euro for 'servicing charge' We didn't even have Breakfast!! Don't they want to clean their own rooms!!! This hotel has lost the run of itself

One thing we really liked are the reading rooms located throughout the hotel where you can just chill out, drink a cup of tea and read one of the national newspapers. Staff were also very helpful and friendly.
Overall a really lovely ambience and a nice way to start or finish a trip to the west of Ireland if you are flying to/from Shannon.
Terrible room, very nice foodfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We had prepaid as per their policy, and when spoke to the front desk the next day they fobbed me off. After several calls I eventually got through to the manager who seems to think that because I was on a special room rate of only €155 that I had no right to complain!
Faulty towers is alive and well in Ireland.
My advise if you are in Adare, which is a pretty town, eat in the Dunraven Arms but don't stay there.
Enjoyed a relaxing break at Dunraven....from doyliec
Frist impressions unfortunately were not the best as the receptionist had very bad english and we could not understand her! Thankfully things did pick up when we saw our room, which was a gorgeous Junior suite with huge bed and lovely views of the gardens.
The break that we booked included two dinners in the hotel restaurant, The Maigue. I have to stay this was really lovely, the food was excellent and the staff fantastic. Very nice atmosphere in the restaurant aswel as the hotel in general. Very warm and welcoming. The hotel bar was also very nice with log fire and a conservatory area overlooking the gardens were we had lunch one day. Our only gripe about the bar is that it closes at 12 midnight, which is extremely early for a hotel residents bar as
most close at 2 or 3.00 am. Other than that, our time at the Dunraven was lovely and very relaxing. The leisure centre is terrific with excellent equipment and the spa was very good also. The town of Adare is very picturesque but also quite touristy so prices tend to be inflated in the restaurants. I would advise to avoid The Blue Door restaurant, We ate there one night and paid 80.00 for two main courses which were tasteless and a bottle of the house vinegar (emm wine!)...

Top Local Tips for Adare
Adare Manor Hotel Go to the Adare Manor Hotel's Oak Room for a very special and delicious dinner.
Adare is a waste of time Don't bother stopping in Adare. We saw only one Irish person the whole time we were there. There are about three cute cottages with thatched roofs, but it's not worth your time. Worst place we visited in 10 days of traveling in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
shopping at the gift stores The shop owners want you to buy something. Browsing did not seem to make them happy.
