The food is really good quality with freshly cooked breakfast to... More

Offers a very homely feel if say compared with Inchydoney across the bay. Welcomed by a roaring fire and a great lounge to have a drink in or read the paper. The rooms are very clean and modern. Great food served by very friendly staff. Laid back hotel in a great location.

I've been to Dunmore House many times and we're always looked after perfectly. The staff is always friendly and attentive, the hotel is homely and comfortable, and the food is delicious - especially breakfast. The views are stunning and there are plenty of places to walk to and explore. Thank you again Anne-Marie and team :)

Was only here for a wedding. Was expecting the usual warmed up hospital food, but i was pleasantly surprised. Food was hot and tasty, even the vegetables were cooked to perfection. It was nice to get gratin potatoes (instead of plain potatoes), Grilled Black Pudding for a starter was good and desserts were excellent. No idea how they feed so... More
