Booked B&B on line, which was done in a prompt and efficient manner. Check in was a smooth and easy process Logging onto their WiFi was explained upon checking in and there weren't any issues. The hotel is refurbishing some of the rooms but this didn't impact. There is free car parking at the hotel. The room itself was clean... More

Stayed in hotel while sitting finals, everything was extras, breakfast costly, staff could have been friendlier. Sound annoying of building works in evening. Website does hotel justice in current condition, it should let people know it's under renovation when booking !!

The Sandymount is a family-run, warm, friendly hotel. I found the staff welcoming & very helpful. I liked the proximity to the DART, to the RDS for Craft Fair & Sandymount Strand, where I walked each morning. It is an old-style hotel with a window in the bathroom for natural light which I liked. The room was quiet, warm &... More

I have now had the pleasure to use the hotel meeting rooms on over 5 occasions and across 3 different rooms. The facilities were perfect for a group of 10-12. I have also attended a larger event there booked by the Sales Institute of Ireland (which must be a recommendation in itself). The management and staff were very helpful and... More

I heard about the hotel through a work colleague. The hotel were happy to repeatedly change our booking based on numbers, size of room and was incredibly accommodating. On arrival there was a confusion with the dates of booking which was quickly resolved and the receptionist was happy to accommodate us at the same rate as the other nights. Food... More

Do not stay here if you want a decent nights sleep. At the time of booking I requested a quiet room as I was on a business trip and was to attend a day-long seminar early the next morning. The room I was allocated was located half way up a staircase. Straight away I went back to reception and expressed... More

Dear Niamh, Thank you for your review. A refurbishment programme has just commenced which should address many of the issues raised by you. Of greater concern to me is that you were not contacted, and I will be following up on this. I apologise that your stay with us fell short of the standards we strive to provide. With kind... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in late Nov 2014. The hotel was in the middle of refurbishments, so I was woken at 8am by the glorious voice of the local hammer drill (Though my wife slept through it, so it cant have been THAT loud!) The room (336) was nice, clean, and well equipped if a little... More

A group of us were going to the Ireland v. Australia match in the Aviva Stadium and the hotel was chosen by a member of the group for its close proximity to the Stadium. The positives were that despite the large volume of people in the hotel post match (I presume they were booked out) our rooms were very quite... More

Sandymount hotel is a collection of what were once suburban private houses, knocked-through into one bigger hotel. Therefore a bit of a labyrinth, but rooms are nice and clean and reasonably-sized, if a little outdated decor-wise. Staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful. Best bit about the hotel is the number of comfy tucked-away public seating areas; little nooks... More

This hotel was very clean, roomy and hospitable. It was within walking distance to the light rail system and about a 20 minute walk to the main part of town. The staff was very pleasant and helpful the entire time. The only issues we had were the thin walls and the keys. The walls were so thin I could hear... More
