“Cracking Croke!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

A wonderful hotel; staff are a credit to their employers. We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and were upgraded; they also threw in some sparkling wine on arrival in our room. It's out of town a little but it was a pleasant walk. There are taxis of course which reception will book for you. The green bus picks up at the hotel in the mornings and this is great value.Can't praise this place enough, thank you for a fantastic Irish experience.

Room Tip: If you are celebrating a special occasion, tell them. Don't tell porkies though, that wouldn'...

We stayed at Croke Park for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer! It was a little outside of downtown (prob. 15 min. walk) but nice to be in a quieter section. The hotel is right across the street from Croke Park (sports arena) which was cool. The hotel is very modern and our room was beautiful. Everything was clean and they even offered hot towels when we checked in! No pool but a nice fitness center. Free internet in your room. We ate breakfast and dinner there and they were very accommodating with gluten free. If you stay here, check out Koh Thai in downtown. Amazing food and great for GF people. Love Croke Park and would stay here again in a second!

This was the only hotel available with suitable accomodations on short notice; typically, our stay is always in city center at a luxury hotel. The Croke Hotel is definitely a business hotel, busy! The rooms are average business decor, clean, and sufficiently comfortable. The most positive aspect, however, is the friendliness of all the staff. Although, several discrepancies in service were that in spite of all the staff's willingness to assist, some things were overlooked during our stay. Such as, forgetting to get toast to our two rooms; not setting up our credit card information to view pay-per-view movies; not answering the front phones to find out the reason that we could not order movies forcing us twice to make our way downstairs to rectify the situation along with a necessary phone call to remind them to set up our movie options, after a long wait to speak with a front desk member. In spite of all this, extremely pleasant staff!

Room Tip: Check whether the room is set up for persons with disabilities, as this was a rather awkward situati...

We stayed here last week for 3 nights, we were upgraded by the hotel as awe were celebrating our daughters 21st birthday and the hotel also gave us complimentary sparkling wine in the room.
The room was spacious and clean, the hotel staff were attentive and friendly.
The bar and restaurant served a good selection of food and drink. We would recommend

I really have no complaints for this hotel. Very modern, very clean, great service, free Internet, working air conditioning, comfortable beds and linens....definitely one of the better hotels I have seen in Ireland. The location is just not ideal for tourists. It takes a while to hike to the tourist bus stops, shopping or most restaurants. Why? It is right next to the big sports stadium in Dublin. In the end, it is a great choice as a close tourist spot is not your priority.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Croke Park Hotel. We always strive to exceed our guest’s expectations and ensure they have a truly enjoyable and relaxing stay. I am pleased to see that you experienced all of these and enjoyed your stay with us.

I was disappointed to learn however that you did not find our location suitable. Located on the North side of the city allows for quick, easy access to Dublin Airport and is only approximately five miles from the airport. The hotel is close enough to allow easy access to Dublin City Centre and all of its attractions but also far enough away to guarantee a perfect, quiet nights’ sleep away from the city revellers. I would like to reassure yourself and other TripAdvisor reviewers that The Croke Park Hotel has an excellent transport network, with several Dublin bus routes stopping nearby. These bus routes service both Dublin Airport and city centre attractions. There is also the touristic Hop-On Hop-Off bus which has a shuttle service stopping directly outside the hotel. Taxis to or from the world-renowned Temple Bar district should cost no more than €10 each way.

Our guest feedback is very important to the overall running of our hotel and affords me the opportunity of reviewing and improving the hotel’s facilities and service.

We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to Dublin and the Croke Park Hotel in the future.

Kind Regards
Russell

This is a most impressive establishment, from the refreshing towel at the check in to the bottled water at check out. Attention to detail in a very service oriented establishment with nice rooms, a fie bar and good food is what this hotel s about.
