This is one of the finest hotels I have been too. The staff are the exceptionally friendly, welcoming and go out of their way to get to know you. The historical building is beautiful and even though they have a newer wing they have kept it to the same style. The rooms were huge, clean and warm with great views... More

I have just spent a lovely afternoon in Tinakilly. The house, furnishings, decor and ambiance were a golorious step back in time, and the views from the house and the gardens were spectacular. It was warm, comforting and inviting. The staff were so friendly and professional. We had lunch in the beautiful bar and the food was fantastic. My only... More

We have been visiting this beautiful old country house hotel for lunch quite often over the past year or so. The bar is very cosy and every single meal we have had has been superb. From the tagine to the crab claws, monkfish scampi to super food salad, everything has been Devine. Last weekend we attended the East Wicklow Harriers... More

Party of 16 to include 6 children for Sunday lunch is a big challenge for any establishment. The food was wonderful and service seamless. The house is well appointed and from enquiries they are very busy on lots of fronts. i cant wait to return again soon and enjoy another pleasant experience there.

On arrival we were very impressed by this country mansion. Lovely log fires greeted us and very nice rooms. Mine had a lovely country view leading down to the sea. The grounds are very pretty also. I thought the bar was too dark, extra lamps would make a great difference. We had a very good selection of food at breakfast.... More

We decided to stay over at the hotel following the wedding that we were attending, room was at the discounted rate of 160 per night B&B. Although the wedding ceremony itself was lovely we felt that lack of professionalism and slipping standards throughout the reception. The food was good but portions could have been bigger. Most of the guests were... More
