It was the perfect place to stay... More

This is a lovely older hotel. The rooms are very nice & the beds were very comfortable. It over looks a harbor & is a pretty view from the hotel.

Stayed for a week at an event. Only quibble was with the shower. I was on the top floor in an unusual room for the hotel (have stayed many times). The water pressure in the room was poor.

Lovely old-world hotel with modern amenities. I stayed here for 3 nights for a wedding. The staff were fantastic, very nice and attentive. The room was on the narrow side but suited our purposes just fine. The location is quite convenient for Dun Laoghaire. As much as I loved the hotel, I'd be wary of staying in the summer. While...
