Stayed here for one night and left the car while we flew out of Dublin airport. Good value, nice food and super staff. Clean rooms and restaurant/bar areas, couldn't really fault it and would definitely recommend. The food and drink are good value also and they pour a reasonable pint of Guinness. They have recently upgraded the security around the car park which mea

Hello PJKNorthernIreland,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience here at CityNorth Hotel.

The Park, Stay & Fly package which you booked is one of our most popular and I am so happy to learn that your stay was a positive one. Any hotel will tell you that the staff makes or break the place, and I delighted that you found our staff 'super'! We think so too!

Stopped off for a night as we were visiting a friend in Drogheda before heading down to Cork... Rooms were excellent and very clean. Check in was quick and efficient with friendly staff. Breakfast was nice and staff were quick to seat and serve us. I would definatly use this hotel again and would recommend it to a friend.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last night for a relaxing night away but unfortunately left this morning more stressed and tired then when we arrived.The guests of the rooms all around us where up partying very loudly all night slamming doors shouting and laughing in the halls goin from room to room for hours.We understand that the hotel can't be held solely responsible for the lack of consideration some guest have for others,but after a certain number of hours you begin to wonder how the staff was not aware of all the noise and commotion at that hour of the morning.And we can't understand why just as we where drifting off(at half six!) we where woken again by a call from reception asking if we required a newspaper for the morning ?! We have regularly been coming to the city north and usually enjoy, sadly last night's partying was a bit to much for us to return.

Hello Jes36,

Thank-you for taking the time to review the hotel.

I am so sorry to learn that you did not have a relaxing time whilst you were here with us.

Unfortunately, we did have some guests staying in your vicinity who were unruly and did not care too much for others. We did try and control them as much as we could, but it was not always possible and this resulted in the excess noise.

If you do decide to return, please do not hesitate to contact me directly as I would be only too delighted to arrange an overnight stay for you.

Kind Regards,

Andy Greenslade - Sales & Marketing Manager

Great location. Nice spacious bedrooms. Shuttle service to the airport helps a lot as the hotel. More of a business hotel but overall pretty good. Well looked after. Will be back. Thanks to all the staff who looked after us.

Stayed here on our way out for a week end break from Dublin Airport. Hotel staff transferred to the airport and were waiting to bring us back on our return. The hotel is comfortable, clean and staff extremely helpful and very good value for money.

I travel a lot and don't really give reviews although I use them sometimes to book hotels. I stayed for three nights last week for a second time at The CityNorth Hotel, and whilst last time I was impressed this stay was superb. From the initial collection from the airport, check in and dinner all the staff were friendly (not plastic friendly but real), I had a couple of requests (needing to find a particular place I needed to go suddenly - the manager Mr Crawford told me he was free and would run me there then waited nearly an hour whilst I told him I should be 10 minutes) which were dealt with easily, good food, immediate and easy fast internet connection (might sound trivial but important to me), and a general feeling of being welcomed, I will make this hotel my first choice in Dublin in future.
