We ate here once whilst staying at the hotel, not to be repeated. Very bland, microwave type fodder, and certainly not worth the price. Also tables were empty but left dirty, which is very off putting. It is always a bad sign when the restaurant is virtually empty, but your table needs to be wiped down before you sit down.

Breakfast was fine but the evening dining was very pub minded with the big screen in the eating area. The food was luke warm and tasteless. I choose a prawn cocktail starter which consisted of dirty lettuce, a few prawns and barely a teaspoon of sauce, no other garnish of cucumber, tomato or lemon slice

Had 2 meals on the Friday evening, chicken and a chilli meal. Chicken was fine but the chilli was a bit dry. Expensive for what we got, no more than your general chain restaurant or hotel food, ok food but not good value

Loved the friendliness of the staff and the proximity of the hotel to the city without being in the center.

We were staying in the Skylon hotel for a few nights so thought we'd sample the food on offer in the bar/grill within the hotel. The restaurant was quite busy but we were very well looked after by one of the members of staff. We were shown to a table and had a bottle of water brought over. The food... More

I was on a tour put on for a family rally. We stopped here for lunch where a buffet was put on. Great food, lots of it and an excellent choice. Well done.

We didn't stay here (unfortunately)- but we ended up hanging out here the last 2 nights of our stay in Dublin. Our waiter, Simon was helpful and friendly. The food and drinks were great. The other staff members were friendly and helpful. If I ever return to Dublin, I will stay at the hotel.

....friendly service with a smile. Cooked breakfasts are delicious. Staff are friendly and the restaurant provides a wide range of meals. From 3 course dinners to afternoon tea, something for everyone.
