Our stay at DCU was wonderful. The accommodation team was incredibly helpful, polite, and efficient. My group of adults remaked about how secure they felt on the campus and were pleased with the quiet environment in the housing complex. We have stayed in other campus facilities and this one rates very high. The restaurants on campus served delicious food and... More

We came to Dublin fro a gig and were only in the city for one night. We booked the cheapest rooms in Dublin for the night and so weren't expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised with the University. The check in staff were amazing, we were particularly demanding on the young ladys time and barraged her with questions about the... More

Stayed here whilst in Dublin for an international football game. Straightforward to find via car and within close proximity to airport. Rooms are very basic but suffice. Short taxi ride to city centre. Think there's a bus from the road end aswell. Would return here if I was in Dublin with friends for an event as it's a cheap head... More

I've never stayed in university accommodation before but I would recommend it. We were welcomed by friendly staff who showed us to our room and provided extra pillows at our request. The room was nice and clean with ensuite facilities. We also had access to a lounge/kitchen with fridge/freezer where we could store water and drinks. The bar and restaurant... More

Stayed 2 nights in June 15 to watch Scotland play Ireland. Very easy check in, spotlessly clean room and as we were on our own landing of 4 single rooms we had a kitchen and communal area too. Only downside was the showers, all of them were hopeless both days and cold on the Sunday morning when we were leaving.... 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
