I have had a few meals in the Skylon Restaurant Hotel in Drumcondra. A very popular hotel for it proximity to Dublin Airport. Very friendly staff and the foyer is cosy and well laid out as is the lounge. The food and variety is a high standard and very enjoyable. Great menu choice. Return very now and again when in...

My wife and I dropped in to the Skylon Restaurant for lunch on day last week and we were not disappointed. We were served by a very jolly waiter who certainly knew the extensive menu and we followed his advice. We really enjoyed our meal which was great value for money and look forward to eating there again.

We ate dinner here our second night in the hotel. Food was good, burger was HUGE and very tasty as was the fish and chips. Service was very slow, there appeared to be only 2 wait staff, but we were in no hurry and the waiter was very friendly. Very impressed overall with this hotel and restaurant.

Had a big problem with the service we received. The waiter forgot our order twice and kept asking us if we had ordered. It meant that we spent lot longer in the restaurant than planned when we anted to get out and about. The food was good though. Just a shame about the staff

Lovely down to earth food. There is plenty to choose from and you will not leave hungry. The staff are very attentive and there is a lovely atmosphere. It would be especially suitable to a more mature generation!
