We stayed in the Dunboyne Caste Hotel for the New Years Eve package, and unfortunately we were disappointed. At check in there was a mix up with our booking, which ended with the lady at reception looking up their web page to see the different packages, which was unprofessional. Our bedroom was nice, but was not clean - which is unacceptable in any star hotel, in particular a four star hotel. There were cobwebs all over the celling and along the curtain rail, the bathroom wasn't that clean either and there was tinfoil under the bed??? The bar downstairs lacked atmosphere and the some of the staff were not very friendly, the bar food was not four star either in my opinion.
On a positive note the restuarant was very good, the food was delious and the restuarant staff were very friendly, helpful and accomadating.
Overall we did enjoy our stay, but this was more down to our efforts than the hotels (because we try to make the best out of every situation), however in my opinion this hotel is no longer a four star!!!
