First trip to Europe, first stay in the first country we visited -- so high expectations. We weren't disappointed. Beautiful scenery, close to a nice "boardwalk" with interesting shops, good cafes and pubs within walking distance, nice comfortable room. Price is hard to describe because it was part of a package deal. I recommend Royal Marine.

Easy to get to. Staff friendly. Nice views of Dun Laoghaire Harbour. Excellent breakfast. No atmosphere in the bar. There is an extension to the hotel where the rooms are more contemporary but you need to ask if this is what you prefer.

Only so so - large family suite/ room was ok but only one bathroom. Corridors of the hotel freezing. Kids (14 years) had to be accompanied to pool. Breakfast appalling! boring dark bar. I think Fitzpatrick's in Killiney is much better, I don't think I'll ever come back

The hotel is impressive, you feel like entering into a historical building, which is by the way the case. My room was big, but with a rather sad view on a rear court and other buildings; the bed was very soft but comfortable. I however felt this historical aspect also in my bathroom, where an unpleasant smell of old installations... More

My stay with this hotel was absolutely fantastic. Nice room overlooking the seaside , food, service, and very quiet during the night let me sleep well as there is no noise of the street. Must say I would come back again and recommend to others. Well done and many thanks to night shift manager.
