Arrived early off a flight exhausted on a bank holiday weekend. Booked here as it wasnt too far from the airport. Was very worried after reading previous reviews but proceeded to hotel. Was allowed to check in early just after noon which was greatly appreciated. The corridor leading to the bedrooms isn't very inviting nor the bedroom doors themselves. The... More

Second time to stay here and such a let down. Bedroom had cobwebs on the light fixtures and curtain poles no excuse in this day and age for rooms not been cleaned. Eat in the restaurant for dinner ordered the steak burger..... Presentation was lovely that was about it. Two bites of the burger was enough, tasted like gravel. Looking... More

The downstairs bar and lounge has a good atmosphere and the locals were friendly. I was going to rate... More

The Island View Hotel is indeed opposite a rather scrubby sandbank which during my stay - mid July -was shrouded in mist. I stayed for 4 nights and when booking had asked for a quiet room if possible and was given one at the rear overlooking bins, a skip and a brick wall. I don't go on holiday to sit... More

We weren't expecting frills for the price. The hotel is dated and worn but the rooms were clean. The rooms have trouser press, iron and tea making facilities there is even a mini fridge in the room. There is no sea view and it is noisy. The parking is limited. The hotel has potential if it was given a little... More

Would have considered myself a good customer of this place over the years but recently its gone to the dogs, my last visit there at the brining of March 2014 was desperate. Plate is completely over loaded and service staff don't have a good grasp/understating of English. This may seem like a low dig but really when you go to... More

Well located by water and easy walk into Malahide. Really it is a pub with rooms. Full Irish breakfast fine but little else - just orange juice and few packets of cereal. We booked two ensuite rooms for two nights; one was fine but the other had hairs in plug hole which were still there after cleaning. Also it was... More

I got a voucher for the restaurant and so me and my girlfriend came here for a meal and had a great time. The staff were excellent, polite and very efficient and the food was very tasty (and plentiful). Would definitely eat here again - only complaint is it's too far from city centre! (I live there)
