Our first stay on our honeymoon in Ireland. After a painfully long flight all we wanted was a shower & a quick nap. But our bags had been delayed so we didn't have a change of clothes. The room & bed were very comfortable & the staff did everything they could to help, including delivering our bags to our door... More

The hotel is well located, and with several busses and train it is easy to get to Dublin. Airport bus stops in front of the hotel. Nicely located close to the sea and shops. Wifi works well. Nice swimming pool and gym, and as a plus, the pool has child-free slots. The room was fine although could do with a... More

This hotel is well positioned .close enough to the sea for a beautiful walk,far enough away for peaceful rest. Rooms are clean and tidy ,good size. Staff are polite and efficient. Nothing is too much bother. Breakfast was great and plenty of choice. Free parking .short walk to the Dart connection to Dublin .. Perfect base for exploring Dublin.

Stayed here for 2 days. First impression was that the entrance doors to the hotel were rather grotty and could do with a coat of paint. Just before you entered the reception area several tiles on the floor were cracked and needed replaced. Checked in by a very friendly, helpful receptionist who told us we had been upgraded to a...

Dear Muckro, Thank you for posting a review of the Royal Marine Hotel on Trip Advisor. Sea-view rooms are not always available at the time of booking as they may already have been fully booked by other guests. We always try and accommodate all requests for sea view rooms but due to the high demand, this is not always possible.... More

We never get complacent going to this hotel. Each time we get a wow. On this occasion, the staff member Rock was amazing.

The hotel had pluses and minus from the time we arrived. From the outside and the pedestrian entrance the hotel is has a feeling of grandeur. The stairs from carpark level 2 to the lobby quickly dismiss this. My husband and I received our voucher to stay in the Royal Marine from a sister hotel of the Neville Group where... More
