The dramatic Hook Peninsula of Ireland's southeast coast serves as the backdrop to this elegant Georgian home. Guests will take a step back in time amid the stone walls of the Dunbrody Country House Hotel, rich with history and charm.
A manicured emerald lawn envelopes this 22-room country house. Traditional Irish hospitality greets guests in the reception area. Original 1830s oak floors, pine window shutters, high ceilings, glittering chandeliers, and crackling fires add to the character. Earthy tones warm the Dunbrody Country House Hotel, while soothing natural light comes through the windows offering views of the gardens.
Every room here is different and filled with fabrics and furnishings that mix the modern and traditional. Inside, exposed beams criss-cross vaulted ceilings; outside, balconies and terraces invite guests to take in the fresh air. Find antique dressing tables and desks plus original fireplaces in the luxury suites. Deluxe and Superior Rooms offer sleigh beds for a restful night’s sleep.
The Guest Lodge was once the Steward’s House of the original estate. Only steps away from the hotel, set in its own courtyard, this space is secluded and comfortable. A marble fireplace keeps guests warm on chilly days and a terrace is the perfect spot for breakfasts al fresco when the sun pops out. Three cozy bedrooms make this feel more like a private home, but access to your own private chef reminds you that every need will be met at Dunbrody Country House.
Dine on seasonal ingredients paired with a glass of wine in the Harvest Room. Seafood lovers will want to visit Dundons Champagne Seafood Bar where fisherman’s pie and old-fashioned prawn cocktails are offered depending on the season. Pub fare of beer battered fish and chips and sizzling garlic prawns are on the menu at the Local at Dunbrody, the traditional pub on site.
Chefs in training will enjoy the Cookery School to learn hands-on how to reproduce favorite dishes at home without overly-complicated recipes. Pamper yourself at the spa located in an original stone building. A steam and mud room plus massage spaces provide relaxation.
The area surrounding this property is rich with history and natural beauty of woods, lakes, and streams. A crumbling fortress, an abbey, and the world’s oldest working lighthouse stands on the Hook Peninsula beckoning guests to visit this southern coast of Ireland.Request Information
