“Hot towels on arrival!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

This hotel does the little extras to make your experience great. We got hot towels on check in and water bottles on checking out. They were very accommodating with reservations or arranging transportation. The rooms were very nice and the breakfast buffet plentiful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Stayed here based on other reviews, and was very impressed by the staff, the room and the breakfast buffet. Left the rental car in the hotel parking area and took a taxi for €10 to town for drinks. It's not that far from downtown, and didn't want to worry about parking in town. Booked on galahotels.com and got the breakfast included for a very special rate. Great hotel experience, would stay again.

My partner and I stayed here for four nights at the end of March and we were both really impressed with everything about the hotel. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the room was spacious and welcoming - a bit more than a standard hotel room. The location is a little out the way of the centre of Dublin, about a 20 minute walk, but that's not enough to detract from an otherwise really enjoyable stay. For those who would rather take a Taxi into the centre it shouldn't cost any more than 10 Euros. If you're taking a taxi from the airport, it cost us 20 Euros. Would happily stay here again and recommend to friends and family. Thanks to all the staff for a really enjoyable stay!!

Had a great time in Dublin in February 2012. First visit, wife found hotel on internet and it was good price (99euros a night). Got lucky and a helpful guy at the airport told us how to get to the hotel using a city bus. Wife told me it was across from a park, it isn't quite a park so much as a GIANT soccer stadium. If you are going to some type of event at this stadium it would be the closest possible place you could stay. If your there to see the city, it is about a ten euro taxi ride from temple bar/anywhere else in the tourist area. No direct bus or tram lines we could find to get into the city, so it was kind of out of the way for us. when we checked in they offered us the 10 euro per person free breakfast, which turned out to be worth it, as it comes with access to free bottled water and a nice lounge area. Also got a free drink at their very nice hotel bar for each night of visit. I recommend this place if you are going to any event in the stadium, otherwise save the taxi fare and stay in the city.

Room Tip: Based on the proximity to the stadium I doubt any room would be quiet if there was an even happening...

My family stayed at the Croke Park for a week over St Patrick's Day. St Patrick's Day is my wife's birthday and I mentioned this when I checked-in. When we returned to our room on the afternoon of her birthday, the staff had put a "Happy Birthday" sign over the mirror with balloons! They also sent complimentary champagne! The room was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful. It is a little farther from the city center than some of the others, but it is a nice walk or a quick cab ride. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone stayong in Dublin. You will be happy with your choice!

Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Croke Park and cannot say enough about this excellent hotel! No member of staff stands out as they are all exceptional. Breakfast was delicious and had all you could want for breakfast. We even had a complimentary upgrade to an executive suite as we were celebrating a
Special occasion. Will definitely be returning!
