The hotel is "very good", but considering the price, it's "excellent". The hotel rooms are fairly basic, a bed, a desk, a chair, nothing fancy; but everything was very clean and comfortable. The hotel layout is a little unusual (basically a couple of houses connected together). The wifi worked great most of the time, but there were some soft spots... More

Located in a very pleasant quarter of Dublin, convenient to Landsdowne Rd - oops the Aviva stadium -this hotel is comfortable, clean and is staffed by friendly people and managed by a welcoming and loquacious owner. This ensures patrons enjoy a memorable experience. Its location convenient to Sandymount beach and Herbert Park allows for easy exercise and the DART and... More

Stayed for a one night stop in Dublin as we were attending an event.We got a large double room, which appeared to be recently refurbished to a high spec, very comfortable and quiet even though it was overlooking main road. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful. Gave us excellent directions & a handy map. We had a very pleasant... More

My wife and I had no hesitation in returning to the Sandymount Hotel (originally there a few years ago) for an end of summer weekend break and we will have no hesitation in returning.

The Sandymount is OK, but I don't think I would return. I mainly booked this because they have a family room that comfortably accommodated our 3 teenage daughters and the prices were reasonable. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, but the location is not ideal. It is a 35-45 minute walk to the Temple Bar area (and we're fast... More

Dear Diane, Thank you for your review and for your kind comments regarding staff. It is indeed a 35 minute walk to Temple Bar, but the DART station next to the hotel takes 10 minutes to the city centre. A block of 60 bathrooms are being refurbished this winter. We certainly hope you will reconsider returning to us on your... More

Stayed 1 night in the Sandymount while in Dublin for the Pro 12 rugby final. The hotel was in a great location, within easy walking distance of the ground (RDS). Also great for the Aviva and the DART train, which are just round the corner. It's a little way out from the centre of Dublin (although we did walk in,... More

Triple Room was clean and of a generous size and all staff were very friendly and welcoming to my young daughter. Breakfast was a hot and cold help yourself buffet with a great selection of cereals and pastries so ideal for every appetite. Would definitely... More
