Good location although out of Town more than expected. Hotel clean and staff friendly. The room however was smaller than anticipated but for one so perhaps that's to be accepted. Price good for booking.com and so would definitely recommend to anyone else.

We found the hotel very easily - A bus from the airport dropped us off right outside. First impressions were very good, the lobby area looks 5*. The check in process was mediocre as I didnt feel too welcomed by the receptionist. The room size was great, the bed was very comfortable and the TV choice was good enough for... More

1- Check-in: It started when we arrived to the hotel, where we were shocked by the receptionists saying they can't check us in because the system is down, promising it would last for no more than 30 minutes, we suggested that we go around the hotel and they call us when the system "goes up", eventually we went back to...

Stayed here for 2 nights with my son and husband. Very warm and welcoming hotel. Great location only 10 mins from city centre on bus. Free wifi. Parking €5.00 per nite. Rooms spacious and clean. Food and drink reasonably priced. Good breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would gladly return.

We visited the hotel for 3 nights during August 2014. It is located in the suburban area to the North of the city, approx 20 mins drive from Dublin Airport. It has good bus access to the city centre and to the airport. As we are from Ireland we knew of the hotel and it's very good reputation. The room... More

I do not know what more to say. I have stayed at the Skylon Best Western for several years. I love staying there when I arrive in Ireland and on my way back. The Staff are like family and I have recommended the Skylon to several people.

Booked a twin room. Small I thought. Both were single beds. Usually twins in hotels have one bigger bed. Power in shower not brilliant. Reception and bar staff could be more pleasant. Breakfast good. Not too far from Croke Park. Drink reasonably priced for hotel. Ensuite bathroom small.

The room was clean and quiet even with the place full of Gaelic football fans !!The food was good and the bar well stocked. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Dublin. It is only a couple miles from the city center with good bus service
