This is our 4th time staying at the Skylon, we use it a lot when flying out from Dublin Airport, would not stay anywhere else. Buses to airport stop at the Hotel on route. The Staff are amazingly helpful and friendly, starting with manager Damien. The Hotel is near many Bars, Restaurants and Shops. It is only a 10 minute... More

The room was comfortable and staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great - within 10 minutes of the airport but also easy bus ride into center of town. Free parking - we chose it so we could get a rental car at the airport but not need have to drive it while we were in Dublin. They do... More

Homely feel upon arrival. Staff were lovely. Well furnished. The strawberry water was a nice touch in the lobby. Eggs benedict for breakfast was fabulous. I regret not choosing to eat here the evening of our stay as the breakfast was of such good quality

We chose this hotel because the price was right and it was close to the airport for an early morning departure. The room was fine, the hotel was quiet but it was incredibly stuffy. You can't open the windows becasue of the noise but there is no air conditioning. Our room did have a fan but be aware if you... More

Lovely comfortable hotel, very accommodating staff. Good restaurant and late night bar. It is a good 45 min walk into Dublin, 10mins taxi €15 each way or bus. Take slot of cash as Dublin is expensive- booked the Guinness tour tickets through trip advisor - the tour is so worth it!

The staff was really helpful. The room was quiet, but wasnt updated, It had an old smell. Hopefuly they will update it. The rooms don't have air conditioning, we had to request a portable fan just to circulate the air. You couldn't open the window because of the noise.

Excellent service!!!! We enjoyed a clean comfortable room with a Nespresso machine. All members of the hotel staff were caring, responsive, super nice, and professional in every way! There isn't street appeal to the facade of the place and the lobby could use a bit of updating, otherwise we stepped inside to find quality and comfort. Then, we had breakfast,... More

I stay in the Skylon weekly for business and occasionally for weekends away. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff are very helpful and friendly especially Simon in the bar. The new bar is fabulous with a very homely atmosphere. Highly recommend

The rooms were very nice and clean. The room shared by my friend and I had two twin beds. The beds and pillows were clean and comfortable, but the blanket is in sort of a sheet "pocket" so it's not easy to remove the blanket if you're hot. It was unusually warm in Dublin when we were there, even at... More

Visited the Skylon for dinner with friends. It was my first time visiting since the new dining area was introduced. The new menu's - particularly the cocktail and dinner menus are fantastic and very vegetarian friendly which is hard to find in Dublin hotels at times! Big thank you to the Duty Manager and his great team for the excellent... More
