The staff in this hotel were very nice, but unfortunately that is its only good asset. We paid to upgrade to an "Executive Suite", however, I would really hate to see a standard room! The room was spacious but decor was horrible, and the bathroom dingy - it just wasn't a comfortable room to be in. The corridors of the... More

We were well looked after by the staff. Even set out a table for us and served water with a takeaway that they ordered for us. Great cocktails too. Great French Cafe in Sandymount Village called Browns is a must. I will go back lots. Bar prices fine. Under 4 euros half a larger and 7.5 euros a cocktail.

The hotel is in a superb location. It is family run and the staff and service were excellent. We had our honeymoon there 40 years ago and returning for our anniversary was a perfect choice. We wanted it to be special and the staff made sure that it was. The room was very good. The restaurant and bar were also... More

Pros: Lovely and friendly staff, clean and modern room and bathroom, modern fixtures and appliances, tea and coffee making facilities, and easy walking distance from the DART. Cons: The hallway is quite narrow, so you can hear doors slam shut quite often (though that is a problem caused by the customers and not Sandymount Hotel).

We stayed at Sandymount on a Friday and Saturday night so we could see the Ireland Scotland rugby match on Saturday. A perfect location for getting to the match - literally right down the street. The accommodation and food were great as well. The Sandymount Hotel is family owned and the staff are fantastic. So wonderful to see a family... More

Centrally located for town and Aviva right beside dart station. A lovely homely hotel. Bar food good and rooms are fine. What is really lovely about this family run hotel is how friendly courteous and good the staff are-from management, porters, bar staff & Beatrice and her team at reception everyone is extremely good at their job and most accommodating...

We stayed in Sandymount for 2 nights, and found the proximity to the Dart (200m, Aviva Stadium 100m) and buses excellent......easy to get to the city centre and back again. On arrival we found the exterior of the hotel pleasant and welcoming, loved the rugby statue, and the free and private parking was a definite upside. The room was nicely... More

Stayed in the Sandymount for one night as we had to catch the boat from the port the following morning. The hotel is only about 15 minutes from the port which was very handy as we had an early start. You will need a car if you traveling into the city centre, but it is perfect if you are going... More
