The Skylon was home for 3 nights whilst staying in this lovely Irish city. After a short ride from the airport we received a typically cheerful welcome and we were impressed with the nicely decorated interior, which included a large lounge area with comfy sofas & a very stylish bar. The room was small, but had everything we needed &... More

We stayed at this hotel in July for a couple of nights. Our 3 year old slept in the huge bed with us at no extra cost. The hotel was very convenient for the city centre - we got buses to and from the centre which was quick, easy and cheap, and with the bus lanes we easily avoided rush... More

I arrived at this venue after a 32 hour flight from Australia. I was shattered and they really understood that. I basically just went to bed and slept. In the morning, when woke, I had adequate opportunity to have a good look around. It is rather quaint, and nice. The only observation I can make about this place is that... More

We have stayed in this hotel on a few occasions and would definitely recommend it. Very close to City Centre, our room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was great. We have also eaten in the bar restaurant where we also found the food great and the new decor is lovely

The hotel is conveniently located between the airort and the city center. So it's idaeal if you are arriving for business from overseas and you have to overnight in the Capital. Temple Bar is just a short bus/taxi way. Rooms are spacious and silent. They smell fresh and bed linen are spotless clean. Bathroom is large and full of amenities.... More

Stayed with friends, very easy to use public transport to get into town (buses don't accept Euro notes though, only coins!). Comfortable room, good restaurant, helpful staff. The small downsides were that the shower leaked and the wifi signal was terrible in our room, which was a shame. Would stay there again, perhaps in a different room though.

Very nice hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly helpful staff and the cream tea is delicious reasonably priced at 18 euros for two. Also there are plenty of busses just outside the hotel either going into the city or the airport. Would recommend this hotel.

Stayed midweek on business, hotel full but staff still friendly, taking time to explain details. Excellent bar food, usual hotel price premium but worth it this time. Again breakfast busy but food good. Car parking available, €5 for residents. Passed hotel often but never stayed - had wrong perception hotel was basic. No hesitation in staying again in future.

Made this hotel our base having flown into Dublin airport. The taxi from the airport took around 20 minutes and cost €17.00. From the outside the hotel doesn't look too welcoming but the reception area tells a different story with a nice bar and restaurant complete with comfortable sofas and chairs. The rooms are ok if a little dated and... More
