Stayed here for a Rugby game in the Avia with my husband & 2 daughters. We normally stay in the Herbert Park but it wasn't available. We requested adjoining rooms, which although was received by the hotel was not available on check-in. After persisting, the hotel staff did accommodate this request - 20 minutes delay on check-in. The hotel was... More

I stayed here with my partner and friends and had the best stay. Everyone was polite, the room was comfortable and clean. Spent some time in front of the fire reading our books and the staff were lovely enough to keep us hydrate with tea and wine. Would recommend this place for a great stay in Dublin.

From the moment we walked into reception the staff were welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The bar staff were excellent and the food was really good. Guest rooms were large and airy finished to an excellent standard. This hotel is one I would definitely visit again.

When your bored of these chain hotels, come here. The first time getting to your room a GPS would be useful, however it was worth the walk. Great room, and a wonderful reception by the lady at the frontdesk. We spent a very pleasant two nights here,

Briefly: if you are thinking of staying in Bewleys Ballsbridge, check this out first. I got it 25% less than Bewleys and parking was free. Near to RDS and Aviva stadium. Modern rooms, full bar menu, standard hotel breakfast. Family run for many years, I used to know this as the Mount Herbert hotel and then forgot about it, so... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. My parents opened Mount Herbert Hotel 60 years ago in 1955 with the hotel being rebranded as Sandymount Hotel in 2011. We are the longest family run hotel in Dublin and are delighted that you rediscovered us. We look forward to your next visit. With kind regards, John Loughran Owner More

I spent two nights at the Sandymount Hotel last week as I was attending a training course nearby. The location is excellent - even if you don't have business in the area, its proximity to Landsdowne Road Dart station means it is very accessible for the city centre. I have stayed in this hotel previously and have always liked it.... More

I stayed at this hotel for a four-day city break over New Year. The hotel is really excellent and I couldn't fault the service or room. We arrived via the Air Coach from Dublin Airport. It is a bit of trek to get to the hotel from the drop off point - you have to meander through several streets and... More

Great hotel in a great location, just get off the Dart at Lansdowne and walk around the corner. Helpful staff, good breakfast, but as usual breakfast coffee abysmal according to Wife (nothing new there, why is coffee so bad in hotels?) Nothing wrong with tea though! Just a short walk to Sandymount village and some nice cafés. Overall can't fault... More

We have been staying at the Sandymount for many years (and as Mount Herbert) and to return is like "coming home". The stay this time was a "break" before going back to the "grandparenting" stuff in the New Year! The "winter warmer" was excellent value and everything was as we expected from the reception on arrival to check out. We... More

We had a pleasent stay at Sandymount, staff was friendly, the room was clean and had everything you needed, even a hairdryer and iron board. The hotel bar had a great choice of food and drinks. It is close to the Aviva Stadium, a bit further out from the centre. The train station is only 5min away though.
