If you like Irish Coffee go to the master of that particular "treat" .. Calvin, a New Yorker who taught me how this particular delight should be made ! I was in Dublin for a minor medical procedure in a local hospital. My lodgings were most comfortable, the staff were most accommodating and I found the food very much to... More

I often come to Sandyford for work and usually stay in the Radisson St Helens. For a change I thought I would try the Beacon. I have had many business meetings there and was aware of the somewhat quirky style of the hotel, a definite contrast to the old world charms of the Radisson but definitely not unpleasing. The staff... More

Was taken aback by the decor - very nice indeed, yet comfortable and welcoming. Staff were all very pleasant right from the beginning to end of our stay. Food was most enjoyable. Bedroom was very comfortable and just a little bit different. No criticism at all. Would definitely recommend The Beacon. We didn't stray from our surroundings so not too... More

My experience at this hotel was truly amazing. What this hotel lacks in Facitilities such as a swimming pool/Sauna, makes up two fold for service and hospitality. Firstly, i'd like to thank Parker for the great service and advise. He really got our stay off to a great start and left a lasting impression on us. His smile can make... More

I spent one night here with my wife and our two children aged 15 months and 6 months. We stayed on a Friday night and the bar was hopping with local office workers blowing off some steam. We were given a double room as booked with a cot for our son. We were above the party at the back and... More
