The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens – Luxury 5-Star Hotel overlooking the Gap of Dunloe, Killarney


The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens is currently closed and will reopen in April 2021

As many of you know, The Dunloe Hotel & Garden is a seasonal property, which traditionally welcomes guests between the months of April and October annually. Normally at this time, the hotel is a hive of activity, with guests embarking on an adventure day hiking, fishing, sightseeing or enjoying the extensive leisure facilities of the hotel. 

In light of the current global climate and after careful consideration, it is with a heavy heart that we confirm The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens will not be reopening for the 2020 season. This has been an incredibly difficult and sad decision for us to make, and we hope that under these challenging circumstances you can understand our action. Our reservations team are in the process of notifying everybody who has a reservation with us for 2020.

Even in light of this difficult decision, we are, and always will be incredibly optimistic for the future. Our doors will reopen in 2021 and we will be there to warmly welcome friends old and new to the hotel. 

Naturally, this is not how we envisioned our summer season. We are a nation of ‘Cead Míle Fáilte’ or ‘One Hundred Thousand Welcomes’ and we cannot wait to return to what we love and do best - and return we will!

Whilst we are closed we will still be delighted to arrange Wedding Consultations and showarounds of the hotel, by prior appointment. Please contact and our team will be delighted to schedule a visit with you.
