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.

I was excited to stay in this hotel overlooking the bay, impressive entry with lots of marble, nice lobby with fireplace and lots of seats to chat. Restaurant and bar on 1 st floor as well as a quick bite area for coffees, smoothies, salads, etc to grab and go. We did not have a water view unfortunately but there... More

We booked a 2 night romantic getaway and stayed there 2 weeks ago. The hotel is very close to the dart station. We got a sea view room upgrade on the 6th floor and had a great view out over the harbour. Our room was a bit compact but spotless. When we checked in no one told us where or... More

Just spent 5 days at the Royal Marine. It is well worth booking a sea view. Spacious room well fitted out. Meals of a high standard. Staff very helpful and friendly. Well situated for shops, restaurants and the dart. Would definitely consider return.

+'s Impressive hotel from another era Clean rooms WIFI reception was acceptable Good staff Great location Close to regional rail and bus routes Allow about 20 minutes if driving to Dublin city centre Nice walking on the pier and lots of restaurants nearby -'s The hotel is quiet large and a little confusing to navigate around.

What a wonderful experience! Stayed at the Royal Marine Hotel in June as part of a group tour. My holiday included 20 Hotels in 30 days and this was the best! As I work in hospitality I tend to be very aware of accommodation standards. The Royal Marine exceeds in aspects of F&B, housekeeping, maintenance, decor and atmosphere. All staff... More

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Royal Marine. When we arrived at the hotel we remarked how pretty it looked but noticed the grand front door needs a bit of a spruce up. This was the case throughout the hotel from the very worn chairs in the area between reception and the lifts up to... More

I was staying here with a friend for one night. We tried to check-in early but our room wasn't ready. However they did offer to call me when it was, and sure enough they did just that. We were able to check in a few hours earlier than normal which was nice. The hotel has a nice interior. Our room... More

Really enjoyed this 2 day spa break. On arrival our room was upgraded to an executive room with a balcony. Our spa treatments were lovely and the spa and leisure centre are impressive. Dinner was tasty and breakfast was also nice. Truly an enjoyable stay in this Dublin gem.
