The rooms are basic but clean, the only crumble I had was that there was no air con and I found the hotel to be quite warm. Only ate breakfast at the hotel and it was delicious! Overall great...

My room was spacious, with a nicely refurbished bathroom - lots of glittering granite and... More

The rooms need an update (they smell like they were once smoking rooms) and there is not much to do in Balbriggan. Free underground parking was nice. Pub food and service was also good. Good place to stay before heading to the airport the next morning if you have a car.
