Having stayed in a number of the Clarion Hotels before and really liking them I was looking forward to this but I have to say we were really disappointed. When we arrived in the car park we were greeted with broken glass all over the ground. It really didn't put my mind at rest about leaving my car in the car park. It really wouldn't have taken that much effort for someone to come out and brush it up. I found the hotel incredibly expensive due to the fact we were pretty much in an industrial estate. There was really nothing around. Breakfast was very disappointing with very little choice. Room was quite dark and dreary. The only good thing about this hotel was the gym which was very big and well equipped.

We stayed here for one night recently and really enjoyed it. From the moment we arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a family room with lots of space, did get very hot at night (no AC) though. The bar had a great kids menu which was very reasonable and again the staff were great, even though it was busy there were no delays in getting our food. The only fault I have was the pool, they allowed big floaters and rings in the pool which when you have two young kids learning how to swim it was hard to enjoy, great if the kids are older. We do plan to return here as the location is perfect for Tayto Park and also the cinema and shopping centre.

Went to this hotel with a group. Booked through the booking system but then had a problem with my booking. Suddenly the price went up as I was standing at the counter. Husband sorted that out while I took the kids to the pool - really nice set up in the pool area for kids.
Went for dinner that was booked as part of the package but they wanted vouchers that we were not given. then they gave us the normal menu where they should have given us a limited menu (made no difference to us as we got better food but just another example of the confusion). Food was lovely, staff were nice but the front desk did not seem to communicate with the restuarant and there was an air of confusion around the place. Good location, nice facilities, nice rooms, just a pity they were not more streamline in terms of services

I have stayed here a number of times, it is a good quality budget hotel, evening food is good but breakfast is not great. Breakfast is a basic limited breakfast buffet; but perfectly adequate. Rooms are dated and windows will not open more than a crack, so the rooms can be stuffy. At €220 for 2 adults and 2 children B&B and 2 evening meals in a family room, you get more than you pay for; it is very good value. We go back because of the good value not the quality of the food and rooms. The food has gotten a little poorer since last time we stayed, but it is still fine. You get 3 courses as part of the Dinner + B&B deal. Desert and main were quite good, but the starter failed to impress. The children’s menu kept the children happy. It is not five star luxury, it is adequate accommodation and meals at a very modest price. I would not stay here in hot weather (no A/C and windows will not open) and I would demand a room facing away from the motorway (because of noise).

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the motorway

hotel was very busy but well run. it is an ideal base for a visit to tayto park. it has a pool that the kids loved. Don't come here for the views as ours was of an abandoned development wasteland. Close to Liffey valley shopping centre.

I did not expect much from this hotel as it was priced for a low service hotel. However, for some reason the cleaning staff are continously shouting in the hall in the morning. I understand they have to do there job but it gets rediculous after a stage. I had a problem with the hotel and the customer service was extremely bad. This is my first review on a hotel. I am not in the habit of complaining but I found this hotel terrible and there are plenty of better options for the money.

Excellent hotel, Staff helpful, underground car park, walking distance to Liffey Valley shopping centre. Pool impressive, would be an ideal place to stay if visiting Dublin and didn't want to stay in city centre.
