We had a very good lunch here, food is excellent, service is good. Its not cheap. We love old places, in fact we seek them out and prefer them to bling any day. So we thought Hunters would be interesting to check out. It is indeed old, but not at all atmospheric. The clientele

We stayed for the night in Hunters, being joined with two friends for dinner. As always Hunters magic captivated us. The moment you walk in you are enveloped with warmth, friendliness and a charming atmosphere. The rooms are old fashioned and a little rickety in places.

You would need to check directly with the owners of the hotel. No pets when I was there- they have out houses but I wouldn't put a house dog there- it would be frightening for them. Sorry I didn't know.

Hunter's is a charming, well run and historical country inn. The staff are wonderful and the food is simply good, fresh, local and delicious. If you want a smooth, cookie cutter hotel with polished marble floors and staff that are in it for a wage, this is not the place for you. But if you want real Irish hospitality, in warm and cosy surroundings with lovely food and service, Hunters is highly recommended. I was there about four weeks ago and confirm that it's as good as ever.

Hi Virginia, the hotel staff are very helpful so I would ring to book in. The phone number is +353 (0)404 40106 Enjoy your stay, it is a lovely hotel and in great location for travelling around Wicklow. Don't miss the Usher gardens and Avoca in Rathnew, about 10 mins away from the hotel. You are also very near the mountains if you want to do some hiking
