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. On the other hand the breakfast was very good - nice selection from the buffet and helpful staff for tea and coffee... More

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...

The Royal Marine Hotel provided us a restful, luxurious stay for two nights on our bus tour through Scotland/Ireland. We were delighted to find it within walking distance of some pubs, which got us out with the locals. We found the Royal Marine friendly, accommodating and offering good breakfasts.
