"Excellent location and great staff"
My wife and I really enjoyed our five-night stay at the Millrace Hotel in Bunclody, Co. Wexford in September, 2013 while vacationing from the US. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and spacious (just to compare, I stayed at a hotel in Belfast the night after my stay in the Millrace and thought I was in a ship’s cabin by […] comparison). The Irish breakfast was great with plenty to eat and do try their brewed coffee at breakfast; it was delicious. I also had lunch and dinner there a few times and no complaints there either. The Hotel is reasonably priced and they also have deals with Spa treatments and golf outings. The wifi performance was fantastic and better than any I have experienced while travelling abroad. Again, comparing the wifi speed to the Belfast hotel is like comparing a bicycle to a Maserati. I asked for a quiet room away from the road and pub and we did not hear a sound during our stay. The only complaint I have is in relation to the towels. They really need to buy some new towels as, while clean, they were old, stained and ragged. Other than that, I would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Booked double room but got twin room"
Informed staff on check-out of error with room and was surpried that they did not offer me anything for the inconvenience caused. Was awake very early from music playing in the hotel. The only good thing about this hotel was its locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great choice of location; the area is beautiful and interesting and helped give a badly needed recharge to the batteries. The hotel helped to do this. The pool and health facilities were excellent and the atmosphere relaxed quiet and calming. I found the food a little expensive; but there are many alternatives that can take the sting out […] this.

Areas of the hotel badly need updating but overall we enjoyed our stay.had to move rooms initially as we were over the fans and had a constant vibration disturbing our sleep. Our stay was somewhat marred by a large group of selfish golfers who were noisy and inconsiderate at times. Several stole our breakfast table 3 times and my husband had to eat […] his at the bar on one occasion. Staff were friendly and accommodating despite the problems. Furniture in the bar area was old and dirty. Not enough staff in the dining area but the service was still excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice comfortable hotel"
Stayed whilst visiting Enniscorthy Great hotel staff really friendly, evening meals very good, breakfast buffet style was OK but as with many buffets food was only warm never hot. Eggs were served on request and were cooked to own requirementsGenuine Expedia guest review
When we arrived we were greeted by a receptionist who was nice enough but answered the phone over dealing with us and gave the impression she didn't really want to be there.. She gave us a room key and when we got to the room it was a twin when we ordered a double. She was very accommodating about this however and gave us a different room. The room […] was nice but we found the tv remote wouldn't work properly. We went to the restaurant for dinner. We were well looked after and the staff were very accommodating. I ordered roast beef. Some of the beef was tough and overcooked, but overall it was good. Back in the room, we had a 3 pronged adaptor that wouldn't fit in the sockets in the wall for some reason. We have been lots of places with this particular adaptor and never had a problem. A lamp in the room didn't work, the shower also didn't work which was very disappointing.. the next morning i found a cuticle remover under the curtain and an open salt packet under the dresser which led me to believe that the room wasn't cleaned properly, and left me wondering about the bed sheets. Though or stay was pleasant enough we will not be returning, and woud not recommend this hotel, it's not up to the standard of four star. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, fantastic food"
I had booked two nights here, but only needed to stay one night. The staff were very accommodating by cancelling the second night. I ate in the restaurant which was very good (lamb shank) and used the gym, which was much better than most hotel gyms I have seen in the UK. all in, I would gladly stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was good however breakfast was a let down - not enough staff on. had to ask for pot of tea and coffee, and had to ask staff for sausage and eggs as there was none left.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great staff, Not so Great Hotel"
While the staff were lovely, there were too many little things that made our stay not too enjoyable. On arrival we had two single beds even though we booked a double room. This was after we had been phoned THREE times to confirm our arrival. Each time I pointed out I had pre-paid and would be there. The girl at the desk said to "Grab yourself a drink […] in the bar while we get the beds put together" which was odd considering we shouldn't be told when to "grab a drink" and the bed should be one double, not two singles zipped together. When we finally got to our room the beds where zipped together but would come apart during the night causing a dip in the middle. The TV didnt work and nobody knew how to fix it. We were 24 hours there before it was fixed. The food in the Bistro Bar was tasteless and not as advertised (roast beef on a bed of mashed potatoe = no bed of mash) while the pool was freezing and just downright ugly, the sauna wasn't working and the guy at the desk had no towels to give us. Unfortunately while the staff were VERY friendly and efficient, there was just too many little things that made our stay quite unenjoyable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for the price I paid"
Seemed like a nice hotel, although I didn't use any of the facilities available. My room was OK, the lighting was dim and the bath was dirty, but I only noticed this in the morning. I would use again if I was in the area though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel for a golfing weekend."
The Hotel was clean although getting close to needing a revamp. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the room was well presented. The breakfast was of good quality with plenty of choice, cooked or continental. The Hotel is in a perfect location for anyone interested in Golf . The Golf course is directly opposite the Hotel and they certainly […] compliment each other. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Who would have thought...."
....that we'd find a hotel like this in a little place like Bunclody! Everything worked, except for a shower in one of the rooms which was promptly fixed. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The public areas in the hotel were a little tired but overall we were very happy with our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value for money and access to the real Ireland"
Stayed here for three nights mid week. It was an ideal location to explore Wexford and Carlow at the same time doing some business that we needed to undertake. The staff were very friendly and helpful even if a little over stretched at times in the bar/bistro in the evening. The leisure club facilities were excellent for a 4* hotel and the breakfast […] & bistro food was of a good standard. You will need a car when you are here because it is a fair run to the coast or nearest big towns. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dated and badly run"
When we arrived the receptionist answered the phone several times while checking us in so that we had to wait nearly ten minutes before we were given our key. The room was basic and very dated. Mould on the bathroom tiles and shower, lumpy old bed, poor quality tv and view of a high wall two metres from our window (even though we were on the second […] floor). Room was freezing and heating was hard to use. Went downstairs to order dinner in the bistro and found the main waiter very rude and sarcastic. Would not sit us at a reserved table (although it remained empty for the next hour) and only found us a table when we created a fuss. In fairness, other staff were very pleasant and the food was lovely. We were in a room which would double up as a suite so there was a closed door to the adjoining room. During the night we were woken by the couple next door coming in late. We were also awoken by other guests in the corridor. The walls are paper thin. All in all a very disappointing stay. Would not recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Helt okej hotell men med känslan av en förlorad storhetstid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
12/16/14 ladym2996 County Kildare, Ireland
Myself and my partner stayed in this hotel for one night. We used a heaton hotel break voucher which entitled us to one night b&b and a two course even meal. We arrived at hotel, our reservation was hard to find by receptionist. Our room was nice, clean and spacious. We made our way to the bar for our food, presented our voucher to the waiter and proceeded to order, we were not clearly informed that there was only certain items included in our two courses, this led to a bill at the end of our meal. We waited 20 mins for our starters, only one started came out at that time and it was clear to see that the other started had been forgotten about. Main course order was incorrect and dessert could have been better. Some bar staff seemed very well experienced and although they were all very friendly, some did not have the experience to be left on their own, this was shown when we ordered our drinks, the ability to serve drinks correctly was very poor. We arrived for breakfast the next morning at 10.25, to find that all cereals and fruit had been cleared away, as we were getting our hot food, it was been cleared as we were getting it, breakfast was meant to be served till 10.30. Overall it was a nice hotel, that lacked experienced staff.

Christmas party with overnight stay. Good package, dinner nice., staff very friendly. Shiver shiver with the cold though. Had to order extra blankets an then underfloor heating was not on so had to get heaters for some rooms. Some of us had to wear cardigans while eating our dinner an residents bar was really cold. What a night it could have been if the heating was working probably it could have been so cosy at this festive time of year.

"Good time had by all"
12/07/14 Dubtone Dublin
Six of us stayed at the Millrace last night and having read some of the gripes and moans on here, we were a little worried as to what we would find. We played golf earlier in the day and had the christmas party package inc the Dinner last night. First of all, the staff were excellent throughout our stay and nothing was any bother for them. The Christmas Dinner and Show was fine, the food was good, well presented and served with the minimum of fuss (we also enjoyed an excellent breakfast this morning).The musicians had everyone dancing and created a real party atmosphere that went on till 1am. Our only griipe was that the Guinness was not great, but we quickly adapted and made inroads into their excellent Rioja wine stock. Our double rooms were large, well heated and comfortable, but I would agree that the decor is a little dated (I understand that there are plans to upgrade). We enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back again, our thanks to all the staff.
"Great club sandwich."

I stopped here for lunch,and shared a fantastic club sandwich which was served with home cut chips, really lovely and staff very friendly.I would visit again when in Ireland. Good location and parking .
"Don't book a Christmas Party meal here!"
12/06/14 Les K
22 of us booked for a Christmas Dinner, 5 of us waited for our main course 25 minutes after the rest of our party been served. Some people had finished their main course before others were even served theirs. Very average food, too many diners squeezed into too small a space.No where near enough serving staff for the number of diners. Overall terrible experience for everyone. Will not be dining here again.
"3 day winter warmer break"
12/03/14 Patrick F County Wicklow, Ireland
I spent the last 3 days in the Mill Race, Nov 30th to Dec 3rd 2014 on their "Winter warmer" package. The staff on the reception and in the restaurant and bar were very friendly and helpful. The food was pretty good if a little dull. The walnut brown bread was especially good. The breakfast was good and especially on the last morning when they changed to a hot buffet. There was a reasonably good selection of hot and cold food, all of which was good quality and the buffet was well stocked with everything. The dinner was not as good, the selection was limited which resulted in me choosing the same dish on 2 of the 3 nights. I had the lamb shank which was very good. On the first night I had hake which was not fresh and it was over cooked. The soup, vegetable, which had so much potato in it and was so over blended it was difficult to tell what was in it, it was like baby food. The room was adequate but like the rest of the hotel was in a poor state of repair, long overdue a good revamp. On the last day as the weather got much colder the room was very cold and likewise the restaurant was so cold I had to wear a coat while having dinner. We went to the spa for pre-booked treatments. I had booked the hydro pool and back massage for €49 to be told the hydro pool was not working, well these things happen. However, I was offered no alternative and ended up just having the back massage for €45, disappointing! Overall, while the staff were very nice and friendly I felt a bit sorry for them as this hotel has seen better days and without a major revamp will struggle to survive. I would not return unless there was a very significant upgrade to the place.
"Enjoyable stay !!"
11/26/14 debbie L Dublin, Ireland
Having read some very poor reports on trip advisor prior to my stay in the millrace needless to say I was very apprehensive heading down for a pre paid weekend stay with my daughter ...... Well having returned from our stay my experience was one totally different than what I read , On arrival to the hotel I was greeted by a very friendly helpful receptionist .... hotel reception was very welcoming , we stayed in room 209 which was a twin room spotlessly clean , modern and welcoming , bed clothes were spotless crisp white and bed so comfy ..... dinner was booked for 8 o clock and on arrival to the restaurant we were shown to a lovely table by a very helpful manager , food was gorgeous as we were on a package we had a two course meal included .... The meal was hot served without delay ( but not rushed ) staff were fantastic attentive and warm .... Overall experience our chill out break was really relaxing and enjoyable ....... The Millrace is warm and welcoming staff are a credit to the hotel ..... with special thanks and recognition to Rebecca and Lisa on reception ..... Do not be put off by bad reviews get your own opinion and enjoy !!!
"Best Hidden Gem in Ireland"
This is my 2nd visit to this lovely Hotel. A boutique experience for half the price. Great deals online and on the telephone. Very friendly, efficient and professional staff. Nothing is a bother. GREAT FOOD. Congrats to the chef abd waiters. Danu SPA is a treat not to be missed. The LEISURE CENTRE has the best jacuzzi. Lovely and hot. My Mother has severe arthritis. After one jacuzzi and a back massage she was pain free for a few weeks (which is why we came back).The showers could do with a fixed wall seat for less mobile clients. And a rail along the wall in the pool area would allow for anybody with an unsteady gait to access this area unaccompanied. I understand this area is being refurbished. Can't wait for our next visit. Congrats to the Bunclody Team. You have put sunshine into our Winter.
"Great food, service and spa , rooms a little tired and noisy."
My husband and I stayed fri and sat night as a birthday treat. Service and food were excellent. Found the bedroom decor dated and tired. Intercconnecting bedroom doors and could hear our neighbours! Live music in bar great fun both nights. Spa treatments were excellent. Didn't bother with pool and Jacuzzi as was not connected to spa area. Golf club well worth a visit. Overall fantastic value if not looking for luxury. Staff could not have been nicer.
