Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights wed - Saturday. Hotel is beautifully kept. Lobby welcoming and comfy just to sit and relax. Bar and grill restaurant ok for food - tho I'm a picky eater and didn't see much that I fancied. The music within bar and grill (runs Thursday - Sunday) was very good on the Wednesday and... More

Stayed four nights and was quite pleased. Staff were helpful and friendly, the lounge comfortable and reasonable, and the rooms and bed were very nice. Plenty of hot water. We were there the first week in May 2015, and there was major construction on the road out front. Several pubs/restaurants within an easy walk. Quick access to the airport.

Property is conveniently located between airport (6 kilometres) and city centre (6 kilometres) and city centre can be easily walked from location. Room was clean and tastefully decorated with every amenity provided. Hallway noise was non-existent which allowed a very peaceful sleep. Restaurant and bar on property although neither were experienced to provide a review. Parking is available but limited... More

A quick drive from the airport and a short bus ride into the city centre, this was a great place to stay in Dublin. We stayed three nights at the beginning of our trip and returned for our last night before departing Ireland. The staff is very friendly and always helpful and accommodating. There is a restaurant and bar in... More

Stayed there April 19th- 28th....have been there many times in the past. No surprises, but even better than any other time. Can't believe they improved on perfection! Room spotless and beds made up to a "fairy tale" standard....pleasure coming back to room at end of great day sightseeing Dublin, tired, having a sumptuous meal in the restaurant on 1st level...

Usually a decent experience at the Skylon (have stayed there 4-5 times in the last 18 months), was very busy and not enough resources to cope with the volume of guests. No tables to eat in the bar in the evening, 10 minute wait for a breakfast table and staff rushing around struggling to meet the needs of customers.

When I saw how close this property was to the airport I had reservations. When I walked into the building and met the staff at the desk my reservations went out the door. This place is the dream of any traveler! They have it all. The breakfast was lovely, the building was taken care of to a fair-thee-well!! Most of... More

My wife and I stayed here while away for a weekend break. It was ideal as we were up early and back late so didn't need anything super fancy. The room was spacious with a good bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good too with a wide selection of cooked or continental. And a pancake making machine,... More
