“Very impressed and surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here recently while attending a conference in Croke Park and I must say I was hugely Impressed by the staff, facilities, food and location. It really punches above its weight as they could easily rest on their laurels with the location but its great to see that the staff there take massive pride in their work to deliver a high level of service.

I would reccomend this Hotel for anyone either be it a city stay, going to a match/concert etc and very much for business. I Judge Hotels by their breakfast offering and this is what really impressed me with this Hotel, amazing choice of fresh food and yet again great service.

Stayed September 2013, traveled on business

I booked this hotel for a night away with my wife to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. We got to the room and it was furnished nicely. The view wasnt fantastic but then who really sits at the window looking out for any longer than 2 minutes! Especially on an anniversary! We had a nice surprise when we had a knock on the door and a member of staff had two small bottles of bubbly and a card wishing us well on our anniversary! That was such a nice touch. Hotel was spot on. It was clean and comfy. Only downside was that the pillows werent fantastic. Free parking as well which is a bonus!

The staff really made this hotel. On checkout, we were offered complimentary bottles of water. Its all about the small touches!

Thanks guys.

We stayed in this hotel on friday 11 October, lovely rooms and friendly staff, however their policy that there is no bar food available after 9.30 pm pm borders on the ridiculous, this is a quality hotel in the capital city,
We were told prior to our arrival that hot food was not available after 9.30pm but that cold food would not be a problem.
This had to be ordered through room service and the only food available was what was called the "classic sandwich"
It really was what it said on the tin.
Will we be back only if our schedule will allow us to check in early, otherwise I don't think so

This was our second visit to Croke Park Hotel, on both occasions we were more than pleased with our room, the hotel's facilities and with the excellent staff. Great location, excellent meals, can't fault this place

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the fourth floor

This was a wonderful hotel with very friendly service! Our only hiccup was their computers went down and our first night got overbooked. They gave us drinks and a cab ride over to a very nice hotel, then we came back for the last two nights.They then upgraded us to the executive suite which was very nice! The room was very roomy and comfortable although not enough light. But we found that the case in all the hotels we stayed in. The gals at the front desk were all very friendly and helpful! Parking was also easy and free. Not very close to anything, the stadium was across the street, but the Henry Street shopping was only a 15 minute walk. We would definitely stay again!

We couldn't fault the friendly service that we received when we arrived (and it was fairly easy to get to from airport on the Aircoach). Would have given a 5/5 except for the location. We were two girls and felt the need to get a taxi back from the city centre rather than the 15 min walk. There's even a shuttle bus for the green hop on hop off bus (so don't book the red one in advance like I did!).

Continental breakfast was lovely - but note that there are not many other breakfast options in the area though.

Thanks!

This hotel was a pleasure to stay at! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant in the hotel had excellent food and the Irish Breakfast was amazing! If you are going to be in Dublin, this is the place to stay. It's about 1.5 miles to the sites of Trinity College and Temple Bar area. Which is close but not too close to the touristy areas. We will stay here again.
