We stayed 3 nights at the Royal Marine, booking interconnecting rooms for my wife and I as well as our 2 year old and 4 month old. Beautiful, elegant, and historic hotel in Dun Laoghaire, though the location is a little off-beat for those seeking a more "city-centre" type of experience. For our family the location was perfect. Easily accessible,... More

Our tour company booked us for two nights at this property. The hotel provided us with a room with a balcony which was a pleasant surprise. The room was quiet, spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Free wifi and secured access to the room is included. This is an old but very stately hotel. The adjoining annex provides... More

Such a beautiful building in what was a great location, until celtic tiger monstrosities blocked the view of Dublin Bay. A shame that the rooms are modern and clean, the service is distinctly 1970's. Loads of staff wandering around, without being in any way helpful. Charging extra for a pretty average breakfast was a bit mean. Could do so much... More

Spent a nice weekend here to visit family in Bray. We were upgraded to an executive room which was very welcomed .The room was comfortable with a big king bed. Only negative was the shower cabinet in the bathroom which leaked water all over the floor due to an ill-fitting door. Thought the hotel prices expensive, two large gin&tonics cost... More

I am normally loathe to give bad reviews to hotels. It's a difficult job as it is, but this was a bad stay. One of the joys of staying in a good hotel is normally a shower with good pressure. In my room it was a trickle. A hose would have been better. I was staying at the hotel in... More
