My daughter and I stayed here from March 9-20, 2015. The entire staff was incredibly kind to us. The owner of the hotel, John, made sure that he met and welcomed us to Ireland. My daughter has had a wish her entire life to visit Ireland and this hotel made our visit magical.

We were 2 couples from South Africa and stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were very professional, they organised our transport to the airport for us. The rooms were clean and well maintained and the bar/dining area very good. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit.

Spent time before the match Poland v Ireland. Hotel just metres from the Aviva Stadium. It was very busy day but service was brilliant! So much understanding for the fans, great spot outside the hotel, band and good atmosphere. Hotel is small but there is enough space to seat and relax. Staff very helpful.

This hotel is located close to Dublin The room was nice and clean, the staff very helpful. Some of the reviews say the noise level was unbearable but that wasn't the case with us. We were there when there was a major soccer match at the Aviva Stadium (walking distance) and we had no problems with noise Very short (10... More

Clean rooms, very friendly staff and convenient location. Good for staying in Dublin on business and 100 yards away from the Lansdowne road stadium - which might make it difficult to book around game time. Room was great, breakfast very nice. The only downside to the hotel was the bandwidth of the free wifi seemed to make it difficult to... More

We have just arrived home after a nightmareish experience at this hotel. The noise level from drunken residents and screaming children was nothing like I have ever experienced. After the screaming children running unsupervised up and down past our room woke our baby for the fifth time we asked to be moved. The receptionist assured us she was moving us... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, this weekend we had a convergence of a school group and soccer fans attending the Euro Qualifiers in AVIVA stadium. My staff were stretched in dealing with unacceptable behaviour. Unfortunately, other local hotels and bars had the same experience. We are frustrated and embarrassed as we pride ourselves as a well run... More

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel was obviously a few houses at one time as the rooms are a bit of a warren, long corridors and an elevator that takes for ever. However the staff were pleasant and helpful. I did have a problem in having each night billed separately as 'computer says NO ! Hopefully that problem will... More

I stayed a night here; arrived at 6 ish, left at 7.30 ish, didn't eat, so a bit of a flying visit. My wife stayed 3 nights and had brek, so I can offer 2nd hand experience. The best thing about the hotel is probably it's location, about 5 mins from Lansdowne Road. If you're going there, this is the... More

The most amazing trip.. Sandymount was in a PERFECT location. The staff went above and beyond helping us to find places, recommending great events, and allowing us to check-in a little early so we could settle in and get ready for our adventures!!
