It's the 21st century now and free wired/wireless internet is a staple in even the dinkiest hotel chain. Why is this place wired up to gouge travelers - especially those who have to check with their airlines and others constantly for the latest information? And especially when you're on a business trip and the accountants give the bill the once-over ...
Anyway, enough with that rant. About the hotel itself - the key here is to sign up early for the shuttle service. When you check in, or even earlier if possible. Those shuttle vans fill up early. The hotel is a 10-minute drive away from the airport, through all sorts of shortcuts. But once you're there it's not a bad place. The Hilton Dublin Airport hotel is at the edge of a new community [Northern Cross] that's sprung up in the past year or so. In about another year the hotel will be a 5-minute drive, 15 minute walk from the DART [rail transit into Dublin] at a new station that's now under construction.
The rooms are roomy and clean, with all the stuff needed for a short stay. I was able to check-in early which was a true bonus. Just don't get a smoking room. There are still those types of rooms available, you know.
The attached restaurant isn't bad, with all sorts of flat-screen TVs to watch what most of the world calls football .... and cricket ... and hurling ... which is NOT what happens when you mix Guinness with a bad oyster. If you wanted some groceries or at least fresh fruit there's an attached supermarket, too.
