As per the title, this hotel is now closed and may be converted into a nursing home. I have no idea why the owners decided to sell out as it was very popular and only opened in 2005. I stayed in the Ardmore many times since and really liked it. The staff were first-class too and I will miss them.... More

Stayed here for 8 nights in May 2014. Got it thinking it was more city center then it actually is. Luckily, the bus stop is right in front of the hotel making it very convenient to get down onto O'Connell street; just time consuming. If you stay here get the Dublin bus pass! Only thing is that we had a... More

Myself and a friend stayed here in September for 3 nights. The hotel itself was clean and great value for money - we paid £90 each for 3 nights. The staff were polite and helpful at all times. We went to the side bar for drinks one night and the singer was decent. We got buses to the centre each... More

I booked this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor, it was rated 3* I think, my room was on the third floor and overlooked residential housing which didn't really bother me, however two mornings out of four I was woken by a barking dog. My room was a good size, plenty of room to move around, bed was comfortable, the... More

We travelled here with our friends and spent two days in September in order to explore the city of Dublin. The proximity to the airport and the fact it had parking were big pluses to us as our friends arrived a day later then ourselves. The rooms were clean and the staff helpful and friendly. There is a grocery store... More

The staff at the Ardmore Hotel was friendly and very helpful. What I didnt like about the hotel was the actual accommodation. The rooms were small and old, but very clean.There was a terrible smell in the hallway outside our room.

We stayed here 29th October - 1st November 2014 5 mins from city centre 10-15 mins from the airport Helpful and efficient staff. Clean and nicely decorated. Large bedroom with good sized en suite - king size bed - a little to firm for me. Plenty of spare bedding and central heating, double glazing resulting in a good nights sleep.... More
