Our stay included a young family with a 9 month old baby. We were given a table in a quiet corner. The staff could not have been more accommodating .

We loved our room in mount juliet apart from the noise of everyone coming and going on to the lift.the wine in the room and statf at reception were a lovely touch The lunch was nice in the hound The dinner was average i must say myself and my husband stay in 5 star hotels all over the world and particularily ireland and like to do some blog posts on our stay The dinner was a 3 course pre paid deal we got on picksback but was below standard to be honest the taste,the speedy delivery between courses etc.the staff were lovely i cant fault them The bar could have some live music and lacked athmosphere And finally the breakfast.we look forward to the breakfast most when we go away And we were so dissapointed we left Buffet breakfasts are a thing of the past in my opinion any nice hotel should have a sit down order for hot food We wer given coffee when we poured the milk it was so stale it clumped into the cup The line for toast was so long we didnt bother queing and the actual hot food was a mushy egg mess with greesy rashers We left and drove back to dublin were we ate out in a local cafe for breakfast Thanks Aishling o meara

Too little staff in the bar. Very pleasant but not enough to cope with the customers.

One salmon served in a bowl without any vegetables which did not impress.

There was no atmosphere at all in either restaurant or lounge. Nothing added to main course except one bought sides which were quite expensive to add to the meal.

The Hound didn't open until 5.30pm on the Friday that we arrived.Lucky enough the Club House was open. Also on the Friday it would have been good to have a bar menu instead of having to eat in the restaurant. Food in the restaurant was really good but it was a pity it is the exact same menu for all nights. Some specials would be good to add variety. My friend is vegetarian and she had to ask for the chef to cook an alternate on Saturday as she had the vegetarian options on the Friday night. Not impressed when spinach and ricotta pasta arrived. As she said the good aul reliable pasta. No imagination used in the kitchen. Over all good service and lovely food just need to add variety.

Really enjoyed all our meals over 2 days at The Hound. Breakfast buffet was very good, and our evening meals, with another couple one evening, with our kids the other, was perfect - compact menu that caters for most tastes, and the fish dishes especially good. Interesting sides. Service was very attentive and prompt. You get the impression that The Hound does that rare thing of pleasing almost everyone. A very sound four stars. Will be back.

Menu too limited, only 6 main courses is too little choice. We would have eaten there nearly every night when staying previously but now we would eat there only once when we visit.

Quality, presentation and flavours of food are exceptional. But perhaps a toastie or sandwich in addition would be helpful to some diners. But still worth the five stars. Had two outstanding meals.

We have just returned from 2 night Halloween break and the whole experience was great. Our 2 boys enjoyed every single minute of the kids club. We ate in the Hound both nights and food was flawless. Great atmosphere. Excellent staff - everyone was more than happy to help with any queries we had. Overall an ideal reset for families. Would happily recommend and looking forward to returning.
