Had the pleasure of staying in this lovely country house in late November. We arrived on an extremely wet and windy evening and how lovely it was to walk into the warmth and comfort of Dunbrody. We had a lovely room (303) and were very well looked after during our short stay. Before getting ready for dinner, we went to the champagne bar and had a drink and were served the most delicious homemade crisps with garlic dip. Dinner was an eight course tasting menu, and despite some of the negative reviews we had read, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Were we extremely full after the meal? No. Were we comfortably fed? Yes. We also went with the wine pairing at €30 per head and both felt that this was a good option. There is plenty of lovely fresh bread served through the meal and this more than compensates for the small portions if small portions is a problem!
The following morning we had a lovely leisurely late breakfast - again in the beautiful dining room. There was a great selection of food on offer, once again served by very pleasant waiting staff.
We booked our stay in Dunbrody through a 'GrabOne' internet deal and were not disappointed. We would hope to return again in the near future. Many thanks to Margaret and Olive for making our stay as pleasant as it was.
Tip - Don't leave without buying some of the lovely preserves and chutney which are for sale in the reception area. Delicious!
