We always stay here when in Dublin and this place just gets better. Wonderful lounge/reception area. Fantastic staff. Comfortable well presented rooms. The breakfast is enjoyable (top tip: don't ask for scrambled egg it's very sloppy. But poached is good). The bar and restaurant are very good and the food is very good. We had several meals there and they... More

Having recently just stayed in a Best Western in Derbyshire, that was fantastic, we were really excited about the 5 nights we had booked at The Skylon. The reception area and lounge are well kept and inviting. Staff were friendly. The rooms however were a big disappointment. They were very tired looking. We supposedly had been 'upgraded', if so I...

Had fruit from the buffet,ordered bacon,egg well done ,and tomato, the bacon was covered in white stuff and very salty,the egg was inedible,I was able to eat the uncooked tomato. Was still hungry so had to resort to Weetabix, so be careful buying a... More

The food is top class. I have stayed here before and it just gets better. It was my friends birthday and she had a wonderful time. Thank... More

We just returned from a 2 week stay at the Skylon with my parents, two kids ages 7 and 9 and my husband. Again we were extremely happy with the staff, the food, the room, and the location. The staff: they go above and beyond what most hotels do to ensure you feel welcome and comfortable. I had requested a... More

The waiter forgot and it want even busy at the time. We did mention it to the manager who was really apologetic... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for five nights over the Easter weekend and had a lovely time. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the facilities are clean and have everything you'd want. The bar was open throughout the bank holidays and staff were really welcoming. The live band one night was excellent and really introduced you to Dublin... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Skylon hotel and we loved it. We did arrive at the hotel around 10am and couldn't check in until 2, this wasn't a problem as we went out to the city and we're able to leave our bags at the hotel reception. We ate at the hotel one evening... More

I stayed here in December with my friend, it was last minute idea to get some much needed new clothes. Not only did I return home with a new wardrobe but a smile on my face from what I would only describe as 'money well spent.' This hotel was excellent value for money, as only being a student, I normally... More

We stayed two nights. The first night we were given a very large room with 3 beds even though we only needed one. However the bed was very comfy and the very comfortable and clean. We were near the back of the hotel so it was quite quiet. The second night we were moved to a different room as they... More
