                  We were upgraded to a huge room with 2 queen beds that had been freshly painted and had a nice view over the gardens . The hotel is lovely and has a rural feel to it with hunting trips (hounds and horses) offered. The town of Adare is lovely and quaint. Hotel staff were all very obliging.

                  Breakfast was exceptionally good with a whole ham carved for your delight. Plenty of choice. The evening meal was chaotic in service, plenty of staff rushing around but not actually achieving anything for the customer.

                  Chaotic service in the evening service.No continuity.We were asked the same thing by 3members of staff.It was a busy evening for staff but we did not have a relaxing time.Otherwise staff were friendly and good.

                  Our stay at the Dunraven Arms Hotel was one of the nicest breaks we have had in years. The hotel was just right - comfortable and friendly and the room was bright and spacious. The staff were friendly and attentive without being in your face and they were so well turned out.

                  Average hotel claiming to be more than it is. They did move us from the worst room possible to a little bit nicer room in a quieter corner.

                  Read reveiws and thought that this was going to be a wonderful, luxury, cozy place to stay. After taking 30 minutes to go 2km into Adare, we arrived at the DRArms. We were put in a streetside room overlooking the cute thatch roof cottages across the street, thought ok, this is neat. Then night time came. We tried to go to sleep around 9 after a long day of driving and touring, but found it impossible due to the fact that they put us right over the bar. In normal hotels this wouldn't have been a problem, but this room was old, ancient, probably an original. We could hear conversations and most annoyingly the opening and closing of the door to and from the kitchen. They did move us to a 'junior suite', which was quieter and a little bigger, but suite it was not. DRArms claims to be luxury, but it's an average hotel with a cute facade. Even the upgraded junior suite we were moved to was just so so. Also, bar has no room and service is a nightmare. Beds were pieces of wood with a pad over too, uncomfortable as heck!

                  I stayed in one of the old rooms with a 4 poster bed. it was fabulous and very comfortable. breakfast was good aswell.

                  The flood lights ourside the window were very bright. but found the shutters in the morning and they would have completely blocked it out if i had looked properly when pulling the curtains.
