Very impressed with accomodation with rooms good quality, decent breakfast, cheap bus journey into City Centre (takes about 45mins), Taxi €30 back which was fine when shared with others, handy to Airport. Only complaint was noise from wooden floor corridor and loud closing of doors early morning which awoke me early. Will be back.

A lovely, clean quiet place to stay. Great location near the airport. The grounds are beautiful, the food is delicious, the food is excellent. We were there for business and they gave us a lovely meeting room. The only drawback is that, while their wifi seems to work fine for PC's it doens't work for Mac's. I had to go... More

Stayed at this lovely centre for a special retreat for people with MS recently. Got a very warm welcome. All of the staff were very friendly and provided great service. The food was excellent and met all our requirements. The whole facility was spotlessly clean, the bedrooms were bright overlooking the gardens. It really was an oasis of calm. It... More

I stumbled across Emmaus Centre on the internet because all the hostels in Dublin City Centre were booked (I stayed Sat/Sun of Paddy's Weekend). I'm glad all of Dublin was book because this retreat center was perfect. I traveled alone for a mini-vacation to Ireland and was very pleased with everything at Emmaus. The bed was comfortable, the single room... More

I stayed for a night at the Emmaus Centre as I was attending a meeting in Swords. It's set in countryside not far from Dublin Airport, and a pleasant 20 minute walk to Swords town; you go to the end of Ennis Lane and just before the main road turn right through a park and along the river. It's probably... More
