"Our dream wedding at the Dunloe Hotel" My husband and I got married here on 3rd May and it was the best day! We are living in New York and when we got engaged we anticipated that it maybe difficult to plan a wedding from abroad but the minute we met with Jason we knew we had chosen the perfect hotel. Both Jason and Niamh were fantastic to deal with on the lead up to our big day. From the minute we arrived at the hotel for our drinks reception everything went so seamlessly and we were able to really enjoy our day knowing that everything was being taken care of so well. Both Niamh and Jason checked in with us regularly throughout the night to make sure everything was going okay for us and this was such a nice touch. We received so many compliments from our guests in regards to the hotel and the service provided that day. One of the main feedbacks we received was how exceptional the food was and how much they enjoyed their meal. Guests also commented on how amazing the staff were and so attentive on the day of the wedding. We were so happy with how everything turned out, it really was a fairytale. We could not recommend the Dunloe Hotel highly enough to anybody getting married in the future. Jason and Niamh went above and beyond what we could have ever expected and we will be forever grateful.

"Wonderful hotel" Visited for family wedding. Beautiful setting with views out towards The Gap. Lovely walks around the grounds and through the woods. Horses and cattle on view from many rooms. Staff helpful and welcoming.

"Such a lovely stay!" We stayed in the Dunloe for a wedding and we really loved our stay. My only issue was we only stayed for 1 night. Would love to come back for a whole weekend and really relax! We will 100% be back! The bed was huge and so comfortable. The breakfast was great! The selection was really good.
