“Splendid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

The Croke Park Hotel is rather luxury than comfort. We were very impressed when we got into the room and from the surroundings. It is near the city center, it has great breakfast, clean rooms and good heating. It is great value for money!

I had a wonderful 6-night stay! I booked a good deal on getaroom.com. This is a perfect spot if you're looking for a reasonable, clean hotel. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. It's right across the street from the hurling stadium, and about a mile walk to city center. You have to dip your room key in the elevator to select your floor. Would stay again!

The bar staff were very friendly and it is a nice hotel inside but the water pressure is very bad in the bathroom. It is not in the best area of town and we were not encouraged to walk in the area. Air conditioning could have been better.

We arrived at this Hotel quite early but the very helpful reception staff were kind enough to let us go to the room after a very short wait. The room was fine- not outstandingly so, but very clean and comfortable. A few more drawers would be good! We wanted three single beds but the double and single was ok.
There is a lovely gym, and access to internet and printer.
The food at the hotel was really excellent- we had breakfast (4 days), ate in the bar twice and in the restaurant. Really good. The Concierges are very helpful indeed and the shuttle bus into Dublin provides a great service. Highly recommend the green hop - on , hop-off bus- the guides give hilarious and entertaining info as you travel.
The hotel is a good walk from O'Connell Street and probably not in the nicest part of Dublin to walk through at night. The taxis are plentiful and not too pricey.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Dublin - highly recommend this hotel, also the Riverdance show and the Merry Ploughboy for a night of Irish entertainment.
Thanks to all the staff at the Hotel who were outstandingly friendly and helpful. The food is fab and the hotel clean and comfortable. What else do you need?

Got this hotel through exploring ireland vacations. Neither the hotel nor exploring ireland are worth any consideration for future use. The hotel is musty and old. First room was smoky. Rejected that. Area not looking safe for a walk. I wouldn't come here again.

we were pleasantly surprised at the efficiency and friendly manner in which the staff of this excellent hotel went about their duties in providing a memorable experience for us over a weekend in which 68,000 people attended a hurling game in the Croke Park stadium. Very impressive indeed!

This hotel is as good as it gets in Europe priced under 300 EUR per night.

Nice location, beautiful, spacious rooms, lots of shelf and storage space, great AC, firm beds, lots of hot water, nice towels and toiletries, etc. etc. etc. You just cannot find fault with this hotel, or its staff, which is courteous and understands that it is their job to make you happy (so often lost in the tourism industry).

The dinners, while limited in choice, were very good, which is uncommon for a tour with 48 guests. The breakfasts were outstanding.

The next time I travel to Dublin, I'm staying here. You should too.
