“If only I could have stayed longer !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I feel it would be remiss of me not to share with others my thoughts on an extremely enjoyable and relaxing stay at this hotel. Unfortunately, I was unable to prolong my visit on this occasion but I definetly plan to return. The hotel simply " oozes" efficiency and professionalism in a quiet, unassuming way. Staff are happy to be of assistance and guests are made welcome. There is always service with a smile. I know from experience that good practice just doesn't happen. The members of staff at all levels in this hotel are well trained and it shows.
The decor throughout is modern and tasteful. Bedrooms are spacious and very well maintained. There is a high standard of cleanliness and the amenities are superb. .The ensuite bathroom will not disappoint the most fastidious ,"pamper conscious" guest.. My bedroom overlooked the courtyard so i cannot say the view was exciting but it was not unpleasant.
Breakfast is served in pleasant surroundings and the food selection is wide and varied and appetising.. The dining room staff are pleasant and willing to please.
The hotel's location is its one drawback. Great for sports fans, i acknowledge, but the distance from all other tourist attractions may prove prohibitive for the faint hearted. or elderly or solo traveller. However taxis can be ordered at a moment's notice and since the hotel has so many excellent things to offer it would be a shame if the distance to the City centre would act as a deterent
thanks for a lovely stay and my only regret is that i couldn't stay longer!.

Although the Croke Park Hotel is outside the city center it's absolutely worth staying there. The staff was welcoming and very helpfull during our stay. Tourist information, arranging a taxi, transportation options downtown: the front desk was very service minded and kind. Service with a smile! Our room was big, on the 4th (executive) floor, very clean and quietly situated. We booked via Hotwire a very good rate and upgraded paying €30 extra per night. This included breakfast, vouchers for a drink each night, access to the executive lounge (free water, coffee, tea, fruit, newspapers and nice sitting area) and in the evening someone prepared the beds for nighttime.
Breakfast was nice. Several kinds of bread, pastries, fresh fruit etc. Internet free and of good speed.
Dining options in hotel restaurant and bar. Barmeals not expensive and good quality. Drinks good price too.
Transportation from airport easy by bus or taxiride. Downtown the busstop is a 5 minute walk towards drumcondra road. Several busses take you to the city center within a couple of minutes. Rates low but remind to have small change.
We will absolutely visit Dublin again and propable the Croke Park Hotel. We loved it!

A great hotel, very friendly staff, very nice food (one of the best chicken Caesar salads I had in a long time) and ridiculously comfortable beds....

The room had everything and more than one would expect, including an iHome docking station, my room also had a separate bath and an ample shower space, plenty of storage... Everything you need, really, and more.
A really nice touch - they put a lavender scented hot water bottle in your bed, how great is that?!!

Probably the only regret - we didn't get round to visiting Croke Park stadium, next time we really must!!

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Croke Park Hotel.

The hotel puts great emphasis into improving both our facilities and service to guests on a daily basis. I am thrilled you enjoyed the lavender scented “hotties” that we place in the beds of our Executive rooms at turndown. They go down a treat on a cold winter’s night!

I hope to welcome you back to the Croke Park Hotel in the near future.

Warmest Regards

A lovely room for the money in a well-located hotel. Charming staff and a lovely breakfast. Hotel highly recommended, but not the restaurant (see separate review). Would definitely stay here again though.

We recently stayed at this hotel on our honeymoon. The staff went out of their way to make our stay as special as they possibly could. We were given a room upgrade and use of the executive lounge and had champagne delivered to our room. The price we paid for this hotel was way below what I would expect to pay for a hotel of this standard. It is only a 10-15 minute walk to O'Connell Street and is a fantastic base for exploring the city. 10 out of 10!!!

Four of us stayed for three nights in October. Chosen from the internet, and we couldn't believe our luck to find such a great hotel. The rooms were fine; the staff were the most helpful we've met; the food was excellent and the free use of the hotel's computers to e-mail home etc was a life saver.
Although there is a twenty minute walk to the city centre, this means that the surrounding area is very quiet - almost like staying in the country!
We noticed that United Airlines use the hotel for their staff, so that must say something.
Anyone staying in Dublin can't do better than stay at this hotel!!!

We were at Croke Park Hotel during the All Ireland Football game between Mayo and Dublin. The big game was on Sunday and the hotel lobby was just packed with fans from both sides and hotel guests. It was actually fun to see the fans and their enthusiasm for their teams. The minute you got on the lift and went to the peace and quiet of your room---that is what you had! Peace and quiet! So while crowds were in the lobby and gobs of people in the streets surrounding the hotel, there was still blessed peace in very comfortable, clean, lovely rooms. Our room overlooked the Royal Canal and we watched barges and swans sharing the waterway which was again very peaceful. The staff was very accommodating with our questions and concerns. The hotel has a wonderful breakfast buffet with hot and cold foods, our dinner was also very good. We would recommend Croke Park even though it is a bit of distance from the center of town and, yes, do take a cab unless you are in for a bit of a stroll.
