To start this place is beautiful. The house and grounds, the whole setting is just fantastic. The rooms are warm and spacious, very comfortable and with amazing views. The staff were very friendly and helpful and did a brilliant job throughout every part of the night. They were coming around all the time topping drinks up, practically forcing it down...

Enjoyed our stay and will return. Felt portions in bar/lounge menu were too small for the price. Breakfast was nice although I believe the full Irish was quite tasteless - scrambled eggs were yum! Will return but like all places attention to the smaller details pays off - heating had gone off so when we returned to room after dinner...

I have been looking forward to my annual trip here for a few weeks now and I have to say....I have never been so disappointed by a restaurant in my life! I have come here for my birthday most years since I became a "grown up". It was all about the service. A few years ago (after the property changed...

Had a lovely stay here last year. The room was so comfortable and lovely views onto the gardens. The bar area was very relaxing with excellent bar staff. The bar food was also lovely. Breakfast next day was plentiful and they had many staff at hand to help

We've been to this hotel several times over the years - never had anything but a positive experience. The building is beautiful, full of history and cosy; the seats by the fire places are particularly pleasant as a refuge from the cold in the winter. The staff are always friendly. The grounds are quiet and home to a couple of...

We came to Tinakilly for our wedding anniversary, the staff were so welcoming and our suite was just gorgeous. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast and each were flawless. The food was fantastic. They've done some great work on the grounds as well making for a more pleasant surrounding. It was so quiet at night - just lovely. Shout out...

Beautiful old hotel and good food. However the dining room was so cold we had to keep our coats on all evening. It was so uncomfortable we had our coffee in the bar as we needed to thaw out. Christmas decorations were beautiful.

I booked Sunday lunch for 2PM. We arrived on time and were shown to our table. After a while our server brought water and menus. After quite a long wait we ordered. Again after long wait our food arrived. It was really tasty and just the right quantity. We opted for a 2 course lunch with tea and coffee, and...

Third time returning to Tinakilly and without question best food I've ever tasted, this time around we opted for the lounge menu, wow! Crab claws are out of this world. The Pork rack was also exceptional as was the prawn and beef skewer, and delicious desserts to top of one of the best meals I've had this year, and this...
