“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This hotel is just two DART stops from central Dublin, but in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood with restaurants and shops within walking distance. Might be noisier when event going on at Aviva Stadium. One wonderful thing was that they let us check in early, about 10 a.m. We were totally jet lagged as it was about 2 a.m. in California and we were able to go to sleep rather than waiting till check in time at 3 p.m. The rooms are a little spartan but comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Myself and my wife have just come back from a long weekend at the Sandymount where we had a great time.The hotel was spot on, staff were really helpful and polite.
We arrived at the hotel at about 11am and were checked into a room by 12 (check in was supposed to be 2pm). Rooms were very clean and decent size for the two of us but didn't really stay in there too much as we wanted to see the sights, bathroom could maybe have a little upgrade but not an issue to us at all. Location was good, Landsdown road dart is about 5 min walk if that and bus routes into the center is about 10. Food at the hotel was great and Guinness went down well too! We went on a bed and breakfast board and were really impressed with it, cup was always getting topped up with coffee when empty and all food was nice and fresh. I would recommend this hotel to friends and would happily stay here again, thank you

I frequent this hotel often and it is a fabulous place to stay. The staff at reception Beatrice, Siobhan, Stephanie, Emma and Rose will give you a warm and friendly welcome. The hard working Jack the porter is always on hand if you need anything done. Breakfast lunch or dinner you will not be disappointed at the quality and variety of food. Great location. So close to dart station, shopping sporting and concert venues. Well worth a visit.

My sister and I stayed at the Sandymount for the weekend and were very happy with the location as it was a 5 minute walk from Lansdowne Road Dart station as well as being close enough to the city centre to walk there too. Being close to the Dart also meant that we could get out along the coast quickly and easily. The staff were friendly and the bar food was excellent. The only tiny complaint I had was that the bathroom could do with a bit of a makeover but that certainly didn't detract from our stay. I would definitely stay there again.

After an extremely busy day comprising meetings in various parts of Dublin, it was such a relief to arrive at this hotel. Best of everything really: warm hotel staff, lovely room, peace & quiet, as well as a spacious internet room, accommodating lounge and bar area. The stay was really a first class! In fact, I have stayed in this hotel many times and have always been more than happy with it. The breakfast particularly should not be missed - its cooked to perfection. Well worth a stay!

We loved this hotel. The location is great - a quick stroll to the dart to get into Dublin. We stayed there for 2 nights. We attended a concert in the O2 - from the O2, we got the Luas to Connelly Station and the Dart back out to Landsdowne road. The location allows you to see different aspects of what Dublin has to offer as we were just a 10 minute stroll from Sandymount village & Ballsbridge, The staff at the hotel were really friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere at the hotel overall was very amiable. The corridors to the rooms seem a bit higgildy-piggildy but this adds to the atmosphere of the hotel - I'm sure this was originally a number of houses which have been converted into one building so there is bound to be a lack of symmetry to the place. We will certainly return to this hotel when visiting Dublin again
