Located in north Dublin, close to Croke park and not too far from O'Conoll street, Skylon hotel represents one of the most friendly hotels i've ever been in Ireland. Very nice restaurant with nice selection of wines. Great for business too. A year ago had a professional training in Skylon, they went above and beyond to make us feel at home.
