Visited the hotel for a Christmas party - food was excellent! Location is amazing, we had views over the harbour at the front of the hotel, just beautiful on the Sunday morning with Sunshine. Room service for breakfast took a bit longer than usual so they didn't charge us! Only thing is the rooms and public areas need a bit... More

Returned for a third visit and not disappointed. Direct coach from airport at €7 makes it even more cost effective The staff are friendly and the breakfast is both good value and well organised If you fancy a break away from hectic Dublin but close enough for the evening I can really recommend this old style hotel

4 ladies of a certain age stayed 2 nights on the back of some vouchers from Select Hotels - having consulted Tripadvisor we requested top rooms in the new wing and were rewarded with nice rooms with side sea views. Only criticism of the room was the black lampshades which rather reduced the light though we soon disposed of them.... More

I tend to revisit this hotel each December for a little quite, away time... This year, I was given room 634 - my initial disappointment that it wasn't a sea view room, was overcome, by the size of the room, which was exceptionally large, with the biggest bed, I've ever slept in..Reception had told me this room and 734 are...

The hotel itself is quite charming. It is a little dated and the suites in the main building, whilst being absolutely massive, had some slightly dated features. Unfortunately the heating did not seem to work very well at all and this during winter was a bit of a dampener. The aircon was centrally controlled and when we requested that the... More

Myself and my wife stayed here on a very short mini-moon after our wedding. We got the spa package and our only issue was the 30 mins wasn't enough.

My first impression was not good as we arrived with a lot of luggage and there were no staff to help us get all the bags inside, though a small door, up steps, round corners. Check in was ok but not the warm & friendly Irish welcome that I expected. Breakfast was chaotic on the 1st morning with a long... More

I recently overnighted in the Royal Marine hotel in Dun Laoghaire. I was on a short shopping trip to Dublin and decided to stay overnight rather than rush back to Limerick. I was delighted to see that the elegant charm of the hotel is unchanged from my last visit in 1977 a full 35years ago. The decor conveys a quiet... More

First time overnight stay at this hotel and my only regret is that I didn't have enough time to sample all its delights. What I did sample was excellent i.e. rooms, the bar area and the breakfast options. I will be back !

A very good quality hotel overlooking the sea at Dun Laoghaire. Warm and comfortable rooms, really friendly staff, and a good cafe in the foyer area. Underground car parking. Plenty of good restaurants a few minutes walk away, also convenient for a walk along the pier.
