We recently stayed at the Esplanade Hotel for 2 nights B&B This was our second trip to this delightful hotel. The hospitality, service and overall care of the staff at the hotel was exceptional. The hotel itself is situated right on the promenade, is very characterful and is steeped in history. We found the accommodation in our family room most... More

The hotel do not provide toiletries (you have to purchase it from vending machine). Breakfast was ok. No... More

Had a long week-end at the Esplanade Hotel. Beautiful position right on the sea front. The staff were superb, friendly, polite & very obliging, from front of desk to chamber maids. Excellent full Irish breakfast. Rooms very clean & well furnished. Thoroughly recommend this area of Ireland. 5 minutes walk to the dart train which follows the coast all the... More

We arrived evening time for one night B&B and were welcomed by lovely friendly staff. Our room was simple and spotless and very cosy. Staff were very helpful and informative about the locality where we enjoyed the... More

I booked this hotel as it was on the seafront and close but not too close to Dublin. It's good value for money and the staff are very friendly. The hotel lobby and stairway needs a bit of a makeover as it's looking tired. The room was quite small but clean and adequate. The breakfast was only ok and not... More

This hotel like many others needs an update, the room was spacious with two double beds and was clean and tidy, the bedding was changed after two nights and the towels every day, both without asking. Unfortunately it was a shower over the bath which my friend could not manage, a walk in shower would have made all the difference.... More
