As part of our multi centre tour around Ireland My wife and I were looking forward to staying in Dublin and at the Best Western Skylon. Previous hotels (same hotel group) we`d stayed at during our tour were `no frills` easy-on-the-wallet establishments - no complaints with them (we`ll use that group again) but as soon as we walked in from...

I stayed in this hotel on 3rd July. Check in was smooth, room was very clean with water and crisps in the room as well as little chocolates on the bed pillows. Breakfast was good with a selection of fruit and juices and pastries and the hot breakfast was cooked to order. All staff were friendly and helpful and efficient.... More

We stayed here because we were going to a concert in Dublin. It was a 1o minute taxi ride into town. Much cheaper option than staying city centre. They staff were friendly and helpful. Only issue I had was the extraordinary heat in the bedroom during the night and early morning made it impossible to sleep.

We stayed one night on our own at this location before we joined a group tour of Ireland. We were very happy with our stay and the attentiveness of the staff members. Sophie and other staff members at the front desk made us feel welcome and were extremely helpful. It was good to get such a treatment specially when you... More

My sister and I stayed at the Best Western Skylon Hotel for the very first time on Friday 3rd July, 2015 because we were going to see Neil Diamond in the 3 Arena. What can we say! First of all the staff are so kind and welcoming, the hotel is so homely, such a lovely part of Dublin. Our bedroom... More

The staff was really the only positive. Each and every staff member was courteous and helpful. We got in late one night and were super tired and we went to the bar/restaurant to get some food. Even though they stopped serving food at 9:30, our server was nice enough to make us sandwiches so we didn't have to leave and... More

On the main road to Dublin and loads of buses though and as soon as we got that took buses in and out of town with taxi after buses... More

I was going to Dublin to collect my daughter from college, so I decided to take my youngest son and stay to go to the zoo for the day. We arrived early so our room wasn't ready. The staff were extremely helpful, keeping our cases, and arranging coffee. Our room was comfortable clean, and the staff were excellent. Highly recommend... More
