The food offerings in the Dunraven Arms Hotel are a real treat, especially for those guests looking for a taste of Ireland and that legendary Irish hospitality.


Breakfast and dinner take place in The Maigue dining room, which is a gloriously traditional space with the feel of yesteryear in style and service.


For a more casual dining option, Hunter’s Bar, with its sophisticated jazz club atmosphere, is the place to go for great drinks and bar food or you could enjoy these in the beautifully light and bright conservatory space.



Serving breakfast and dinner daily, the Maigue Restaurant offers flavoursome Irish cuisine with a contemporary twist.


The Maigue is the formal dining room of The Dunraven Arms and it is a beautiful, elegant space with period features, crisp white linen clad tables, sparkling silver and glassware and a graceful silver service style. The room and service is totally in keeping with the sense of tradition of this old hunting lodge turned luxury hotel.


Menus offer a choice of first courses and mains centred around local and Irish produce. You’ll be spoiled for choice with all the lovely dishes, but it must be said that the speciality of the house is the wonderful prime roast rib of Irish beef, which is carved in the old fashioned way from the silver trolley in the centre of the dining room. It’s very theatrical.


Eating breakfast in such elegant surrounds is a fabulous way to start your day. The big buffet includes all the usual cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, juices and fresh baked breads and this is followed up with a hot selection which includes a full leg of glazed roast Limerick ham served from the trolley.


This impressive joint is carved by hand and slices are generous. Enjoy them with all the traditional Irish breakfast accompaniments which makes for a breakfast feast suitable for royalty.

The team at Dunraven Arms Hotel have recognised the impact their sector can have on environmental issues and have pro-actively put steps in place to sufficiently reduce their carbon footprint and promote more sustainable practices.


Dunraven work closely with their refuse collector on staff educational initiatives, making sure each year their team are kept up to date on the latest waste practices. Furthermore organic and food waste is removed by their refuse collector and composted for bio-fuel, ensuring nothing is wasted and has a further sustainable role to play.



The guest experience at Dunraven also has a pro-active role to play in their sustainability initiative. Instead of the plastic key cards seen in many accommodation providers, Dunraven hark back to traditional methods, providing guests with physical keys to their rooms.


Guests are also encouraged to bring their own water bottles to the leisure centre instead of using paper water cups. Recyclable and compostable coasters, straws and takeaway cups along with energy saving light bulbs are also part and parcel at Dunraven.


The Dunraven Arms Hotel’s beautiful gardens are also playing a vital role in their sustainable initiative, it features a kitchen garden, where they grow seasonal produce and herbs used in the food & drink offering for the hotel. The garden is also home to a well on site, helping water conservation.


In 2020, the hotel started hosting guests of the insect variety when they developed their ‘Insect Hotel’, creating special suites for sheltering insects and bugs that play such an integral bio-diversity of our environment. The garden is also set up to host solitary wasps and bees and their offspring.


The food and drink offering at Dunraven also has a strong sustainable undertone. They support the local economy by sourcing meat from producers and farmers in the Munster region and fish from the west coast of Ireland where fish quotas are sustainably managed.
