During my September stay in these apartments I was delighted (not) to find that not only was there no wifi in the rooms and inadequate parking. But that the management and security are some of the most rude, obnoxious people I have had the displeasure of meeting. Here are some of the worst problems: - Sarcastic, unreasonable and unpleasant staff... More

A group of 14 of us stayed at the DCU recently for a hen weekend. The staff (especially David Doyle) were absolutely brilliant in the lead up, assisting us with lots of queries and requests (such as ordering balloons and champagne on arrival). The accommodation itself was perfect for a large group, as we all got to stay on the... More

Although I have sometimes had difficulty locating reception staff, the accommodation itself is excellent. Modern hotel standard, if slightly dated, with wifi access, good beds and good shower. The suites are very good, with full kitchen and lounge provision. Food is available on campus and reception staff are helpful in finding taxis etc. The campus has a choice of eating... More

Stayed here on my way out of Ireland. Very clean, well maintained, and clean. Excellent breakfast. Wonderful sports facilities and close to the airport without being right next to it. It is a bit far from the city center, but it is not possible to reach it. The one downside is that there is only WiFi in the common areas,... More

Our group was Dublin=-based, but travelling all across Ireland. The University made an ideal base, all rooms were clean and comfortable, and of course all were en-suite. Single rooms is a big attraction with our group, and this made the University an ideal choice. Breakfast was superb. At 9 euros it was not unreasonably priced, and the standard was first... More
