This hotel near the Irish Sea is a throwback to the past but with 21st Century updates. Most famous visitors may have been Laurel and Hardy but other notables stayed here. Nice lunches, pub and good dining. Large comortable lobby. Rooms are up-to-date. Close to the water with scenic piers to walk. Ferrys to the U.K.

We were booked on a 3 day older and wiser package which, had we been so, we would not have taken. The evening meal system was not acceptable for a 4* hotel. I am a diabetic and had booked meals for 6pm. First night we were told it was in Hardy's bar. No booking registered in there so sent to... More

I have stayed here half a dozen times and as usual the rooms are clean, of a good standard and the staff are gracious and friendly. Top draw Guinness is of course a must and there's always plenty on hand. Highly recommended and will come back again soon, to be sure 😉

My recent stay was not a good experience. Walking from the lobby through the hallway behind reception I needed to keep a piece of clothing covering my face because of excessive mold in the hallway. Getting into our room which was at the dead end of the hallway the bathroom also smelled strongly of mold. Our room because of its... More

A grand hotel with beautiful ocean views. We were so impressed with our room for two nights in early August, 2014. Very close to restaurants in Dun Laoghaire. We found the staff to be gracious and helpful at all hours. Excellent room, views of the local church spire and sea air from the windows. Thank you for a wonderful memory.

We stayed as a couple in a sea view room for two nights. We felt welcomed on arrival and were more than happy to have been dropped at the door of the hotel by the Aircoach service.

I stayed here in July and upgraded to a sea view room. Highly recommend doing this as the hotel offers great views. Excellent location and free parking. Pool and facilities were enjoyable as was the food. Good choice for a weekend away with lots to see and do nearby.
