Hunters Hotel

Newrath Bridge, Rathnew, Co. Wicklow
aaicon Hotel 78 %

One of Ireland's oldest coaching inns, this charming country house was built in 1720 and is full of character and atmosphere. It has been in the same ownership for generations. The bedrooms retain their old world charm and many original features, from creaking floorboards to antique furniture and country chintz. They are however warm and comfortable, many with wonderful views over prize-winning gardens bordering the River Vartry.
The restaurant has a well-founded reputation for carefully prepared dishes which make the best use of high quality local produce, including fruit and vegetables from the hotel's own garden. It is one of the few hotels still offering traditional lunch daily. This is an ideal base for touring the gardens of County Wicklow, less than an hour from Dublin City centre.
