Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and eaten in the Dunn Ri Bar. I ordered the chicken mushroom pasta and it wasn't good to say the least. Sauce was bland, just lacked favour and taste. The bar is decorated very well and it's clear this is a trendy place to socialise in.

Great vibe lovely service and fantastic steak sandwich. I'll be going back for another one! And the heated beer garden is a bonus.

Being one of the few restaurants open on a Saturday afternoon, we thought we'd try here as it caters well for large groups (there were 10 of us). The food was 'buffet style' so grab a tray & move along the queue. I took the roast of the day (beef) along with a good choice of veg. Amongst the group... More

Dinn Ri is the best place to get a carvery dinner. It's served from 1-4 7 days a week. Prices are reasonable usually around €12.95 for a big portion.The evening menu however is not as good. You only get half the portion compared to what you get at the carvery, and it costs as much if not more. Overall it's... More

Hi, Please tell Nicloa that she was just about the most professional person we have ever met out on a night. She really went above and beyond for this birthday meal and put up with our demands!! The food was delicious, but one main course had maple syrup on the chicken and this really took away from the taste. Great... More

Great atmosphere and good music. There is lots of space and the music is on quite late and the bar is open late so good place for a late night session or party.

We had read about this establishment and how their roast dinner was meant to be really good so we put it to the test. The service was great and there is a vast amount of seating. There is no wonder the queues are so long when you walk in at lunch however these moved fairly quickly. In no time we... More
