“Nice views and ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The hotel is situated on the bay of Dublin and a room in the back of the hotel with a view of the bay is recommended. The double room was basic, but spacious and clean and it offered the best view.
Breakfast was included in the price and was of poor/average quality. The chef did not master the art of frying eggs nor bacon. The cappuccino however was well made every time. The selection of breakfast choice was limited and below average. Service was friendly and efficient everywhere in the hotel. We stayed there a week and overall it represents good value for money.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found our staff friendly and efficient at all times.
Our hotel looks onto Dublin Bay and the view from our bedrooms overlooking our gardens is amazing.
We are currently reviewing our hotel menus and hope that should you decide to return to stay with us again in the near future, you will find our breakfast menu much more to your liking.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.

Kindest Regards

We stayed at the Marine as a base for hopping on the bus to visit Howth for the excellent Dublin Bay Prawn festival. The large bedrooms are clean and well appointed, breakfast was tasty and the added bonus was use of the leisure centre which made for a very pleasant stay. As there is also a Dart station nearby this hotel would also be handy for getting into Dublin but give the option for being on the coast and close to the lovely town of Howth.

This was a nice hotel.I went to this hotel on the 12th April with my boyfriend for his birthday.When we went to the reception around 1pm to check in the receptionist said we wouldn't be able to go to our room til 3pm.This was ok-we didn't mind going to the restaurant for a bite to eat.However, when I asked if we had got a room with a balcony which I had requested online, the receptionist became very irate and said in an angry tone "Yes, and as I said the room that has been allocated to you is not ready yet!".I was shocked by her attitude as I was very friendly to her,This wasn't a nice introduction to the hotel.The receptionist was not welcoming.We didn't get a balcony in our room as it turned out.We thought we might be able to get bar food which was nice, but that wasn't available til 4pm.The bedroom was nice and big though and we got a lovely sea view which we had requested,However, I think nowadays all hotels should have flat screen tvs.To get the leisure centre, we had to go out the back door of the hotel and walk outside along the garden to the leisure centre.Should it have been raining, we would have got wet!There was no reception area in the leisure centre and no one supervising the pool!I didn't like that the sauna and steam room were separate to the swimming pool and just outside the men's and women's changing rooms.Should we have needed any help in the leisure centre, there was no one to call upon and it is separate from the hotel.The back of the hotel is located overlooking a beach and the sea.There is a gate to get out onto the beach but it was locked.Think hotel guests should be able to use the beach as this location is an advantage to people choosing the hotel.We were not told of the steps to the beach a few minutes away from the hotel.Nice to have a beach near the hotel.We only found this out by chance.We liked the bar.Great location for bus and dart services.Bus stop just outside the hotel.Personally, I prefer a buffet breakfast rather than table service but the food was nice,

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room with a balcony.Two rooms seem to have a balcony but you have to pay the high...

Had a family dinner here on Easter Sunday, there were 9 of us in total. We book edit table for 3pm but it wasn't ready on time, this was the only fault for the whole afternoon.
Firstly the food was exceptional probably one of the best I've had in a long time, the presentation was very good and a good choice from the menu.
The staff were so helpful and very professional with the manager overseeing everything. There were a few fussy people in our group but the staff ensured that everybody was accommodated with their requests.
I highly recommend The Marine and will definitely be returning soon.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Marine Hotel last week for two nights. From the minute we arrived, we were met by helpful, polite staff. The room was spacious, very clean and had a sea view. From Cathy and Sarah on reception to Sebastian In The Restaurant, Ivan in the Bar, cleaning staff all made us welcome. The rooms, food, pool and facilities were excellent. Try the steak! The Dart is only a ten minute walk away. The drive round Howth is beautiful. We are already planning our next trip to The Marine

Lovely airy hotel with very pleasant staff. Decent food in restaurant. Clean unsupervised swimming pool. Great location for access by DART to city centre, and within walking distance of excellent restaurants in Howth. Only Black Mark on our weekend was that one of our rooms was broken into (but nothing taken) and we would have liked the hotel to be a bit more apologetic as it did feel like quite an intrusion.
