The hotel is beautiful inside with lots of areas to relax and unwind with a scone and coffee or a drink or two in the Skylon bar. The service from reception was amazing it was mine and my husband first wedding anniversary and we got upgraded and a complimentary bottle of sparkling sent up to our room. Breakfast is good...

Stayed here with my husband as we were in Dublin for a romantic break. We were blown away in amazement of this little diamond of a hotel, it was so good I almost wanted to keep it our own secret but think it would be unfair to the staff and management not to let you all know how really good...

Hi my husband and I stayed here for two days around St. Patrick's day. The room was great and have to thank Colette for everything that she did for us. we ate in the hotel bar, the food was great and service was good. The next time i'm in Dublin the Skylon will be my only chose.

We stayed 2 nights here 26th to 28th March for a couple of nights away together. The hotel is about 15 minutes or so from the airport. €15 taxi. Didn't bother with the paddy wagon as wanted to get there, eat and drink. Check In efficient with 2 or 3 staff popping up to ensure everyone was seen to. Large... More

Our last night in Ireland was great staying in the BW hotel. It includes a free shuttle from the airport, but the shuttle back to the airport costs 3 euro each. A bus ride is still needed to go into town, but there are restaurants and shops across the street as required.

On arrival at the Dublin Skylon Hotel the receptionist was pleasant and professional I was given the key to my room, the interior of the hotel was clean but in need of redecoration, the room basic, wifi very slow, the bathroom left a lot to be desired and wasnt as clean as I would expect for a Best Western.

A great way to start the trip. Friendly staff and very helpful. Close to the college and accessible to other transportation. Easy bus ride from the airport. A great jumping off point. wanted to stay there again and they were booked. Highly recommended

This was our first stay in Ireland and we really enjoyed it. Good breakfast was included. Room was a little warm and there was no air conditioning or fan in the room. Staff were very helpful with maps and suggested sites for us to visit. Car parking was no problem and we toured the city easily from here.

My friends and I chose this hotel as a jumping off point for our trip further into Ireland. It was midway between the airport and the city center, which worked for our one night in Dublin. My favorite thing? That my room was ready when I arrived at 6 am from my overnight flight. Who doesn't want a nap after... More

The staff was professional and the room was nice. The location was alright but would have liked to be closer to the City Center since we were staying there around St. Patrick's Day. We did not use the restaurant but the bar was alright. The bartender seemed to be new at her job though.
