Went for Afternoon Tea at Hunter's Hotel this afternoon, truly a wonderful experience. The freshest of gorgeous sandwiches, scones with "the works", wee cakes along with lots of fresh tea and coffee looking out on to the most gorgeous garden with a real fire in the grate doesn't get much better!

Lovely old house. Delightful garden. Delicious breakfast. The drawing room was so peaceful and I enjoyed a light lunch in front of the fire. Very peaceful by night. The staff here are wonderful. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. Looking forward to my return visit already.

Traveling home from the states myself and my girlfriends chose Hunters to meet for lunch and we could not have been happier. Hunters timeless charm and ambience was an ideal antidote for this busy crew. The staff are so warm and friendly, the food was great and the setting was wonderful. The garden was spectacular in the sunshine; an idyllic...

The gardens at this hotel are renowned and justly so. They are a picture at the moment. We had a drink before lunch sitting listening to the chaffinches and swallows and the gurgling of the nearby river. This is an old hotel and therefore will not be everybody's cup of tea. We loved it. It reeked of Edwardian gentility and...

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at this small and charming hotel recently. We both needed a break from our busy city jobs and this seemed like just the right place to do it, and with the added benefit of being not too long a drive from Dublin. The thing that I liked most about this lovely...

In serious need of a refit in the bathrooms, a lick of paint throughout, and a new chef. They use blankets from your grandmother's house and the room was musty and smelly. Food was even worse - foul tasting crab starter swimming in a soup of sweet chili sauce was inedible, bread was stale, and cheese board was from Tesco...

I stayed here for a weekend break - I thought it seemed like a romantic getaway, close to Dublin, yet in the countryside. Also the idea of an old coach-house with good food reviews seemed right up our alley. When we got here we had to wait for a few moments at reception as there is not someone on duty...

Food is average for the price, the apple crumble was very poor. I come here for lunch with family because they love the atmosphere. What spoils it for me every time is the awful service from one long standing staff member. She is rude, abrupt, unhelpful, looks like she doesn't want to be there and could not care less about...

Lunch in Hunters is a real treat. Old world athmosphere, garden view, tablecloth, silverware and very good food all for €20 for two courses - the experience is well worth it. Service is good and unrushed and there is a cosy bar/lounge to relax over coffee afterwards.

Hunters Hotel still retains the 'Irishness', yet treats customers in a special way. It is still run by the same family, now in it's fourth generation. If you need somewhere to escape, go here. Richard was very welcoming, as were Margaret and all the ladies waiting on us before lunch. Nicola was so friendly and we felt we had a...
