This is the third time my husband and I have stayed at the Beacon Hotel. We found it a very nice friendly hotel, the rooms are very spacious and well equipped, each time we have stayed there we have asked for a high floor room and they have been very obliging and given us the same room on the top...

Really chilled chic hotel, ask for a room on a top floor for a super view. Really great bathroom , comfy bed and a great hotel to have a self pamper night. Not much on the general location but a very relaxing visit.

Friendly efficient staff, a modern stylish room and a wonderful breakfast combined to make our stay so pleasant and relaxing. We would highly recommend the Beacon hotel. The Luas is just a 7 minute walk from the hotel giving easy access to Dublin city centre and the hotel is easily accessible from the M50.

Be careful. When I checked in, I was just given a key to the room and ointed to the elevator. A curious room awaited me. It is as if Salvador Dali and Ivana Trump co-desined a room. The room is designed like a slice of pie, and things stick out in traffic patterns. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO NAVIGATE YOUR ROOM... More

I stayed at the Beacon for one night on business. The reception staff were great and the overall feel of the hotel was very boutique; leather padded lift walls, white everywhere... It was well done overall. Although the room was quite small, it was light and the bed was really comfortable. The location isn't great but was perfect to get... More

Stayed at the beacon a number of times while attending the hospital. Very convenient for this purpose & I would stay here again for this reason. Even if I was in Dublin for another reason I'd stay here if it was appropriate to where I was going, what I was doing. There's a fab Thai restaurant in the hotel, had... More
