“Unique hotel, excellent location, friendly staff, amazing food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed our stay at The Beacon, the food was excellent and the location is great, easily accessible to many of Dublins amenities and attractions. The staff were very friendly, from
The bar, to the restaurant staff and especially front of house. 10/10 and I would recommend it to everyone.

The Rooms were immaculate and of very modern design, the Food was devine (I had Breakfast and Dinner in the Thai restaurant), the staff were friendly and welcoming. The design of the interior would alone make me want to go back. 5/5

I would highly recommend this hotel from the reception from all staff to the high quality food and sence of luxury throughout the hotel ... Stayed for a weekend for a romantic getaway , stayed in a deluxe king room which was fabulous ... The bathroom was also fabulous and a bath in it to die for !!!! I had cocktails at the bars which were expensive but well worth the price ... Food and service in the restaurant was also first class ... I really would recommend this hotel to anyone ... My biggest surprise was the high quality off the room service which I find usually hard to get a good quality food but this was also the best room service food I have come across /.. Well done to the hotel owners and manager excellent hotel deserving 5 stars .

I love this hotel, i have stayed here numerous times with my boyfriend. Its great to avail of the packages that the hotel does, our favourite one is the dine out stay out package.
We always get the king deluxe room, its amazing- lovely big bath that two can fit in and a rainforest shower.(tho the king size bed is two doubles put together)
The restaurant is lovely, very yummy food and the service is great.
The bar is pretty cool aswell.
The athmosphere is really good at this hotel with nice music playing when you are in the lobby.
Its a special hotel that is nice for couples to just stay in and enjoy all it has to offer and a added bonus i dont remember seeing children there!

Room Tip: pick the king deluxe!

I recently stayed here as part of a work night out. We started off with a cocktail masterclass with the head barman sean who thought us how to make a variety of cocktails, and everyone of us thought it was brilliant, i would recommend it to any group. We then got dinner in the mi thai which of coarse was delicious. I also loved the pool table which is situated in the lobby. The rooms are nice and spacious with lovely bathrooms and all the staff i came across were very helpful with whatever we needed. Breakfast was tasty and out of the kitchen in a matter of minutes, I will definitely suggest another night out here.
