I stayed at the Tara Towers Hotel with my husband and my parents over three nights. The staff were amazingly helpful and went out of their way to help and accommodate us when we suddenly needed extra rooms, due to a death in the family. The views from the sixth floor are amazing both on the sea and the mountain... More

We stayed here for two nights with a four night break between them. Our first room at the front of the building was very nice with lovely views over Dublin bay. Twin beds, tea & coffee facilities, television and toilet, sink and bath/shower with complementary toiletries. Brannigans bar was OK and the meal we had was very nice. Buffet breakfast... More

We recently held an 80th birthday party for my Mother at the restaurant in the Tara Towers and a great evening was had by all. Patricia and her team could not be more accommodating beforehand, was very helpful and put the mother's mind at ease beforehand. The food and service was excellent throughout the evening and they had even arranged... More

The first room we were given was a bit dirty and the toilet would not flush properly . We were moved to the one beside it and it was a vast improvement . The only fault I found was that the room was very hot at night as the window did not open fully and I like to sleep with... More

When we arrived at the hotel, we were pleased to be given an executive room on the fourth floor. However, if this was executive, I'd hate to see what the other rooms are like. The room was spacious, but that was the end of the good points. Bed was on light and on four wheels, which meant that it moved... More

Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Very dated and grubby throughout hotel, room was filthy, food was poor, staff very inattentive and unhelpful, does not match pictures on booking website in any way. Was not at all pleased with my stay here.
