Everything about this hotel is excellent. We stayed during a very hot spell of weather and the gorgeous terrace is a beautiful oasis with its abundant foliage and trickling fountain well away from any sound of traffic. We enjoyed taking the hotel bicycles out to a favourite swimming spot at Seapoint for a dip and a sea breeze. The staff at the hotel were all so charming and accommodating. I look forward to returning!

This is an outstanding hotel and we had a wonderful time - we stayed for the weekend (anniversary) and had dinner in the Garden Room. Everything was outstanding. We recommend the kayaking in the Liffey. Hotel is perfectly located for shopping; restaurants; museums and walking around Dublin. Staff and service is always there without being stuffy. True five star !

From arrival where our car was valet parked, to relaxed check in , deluxe room was perfect. Spot of lunch, perfect and drinks, perfect. I loved the bar and the relaxation areas , staff warm and friendly and professional. Beautiful breakfast room, didn’t try the pool or spa but I imagine they were in keeping with the rest of the hotel. Try and get a room in the main house , and even if you live near this wonderful establishment it’s worth treating yourself to a stay here . We had a wonderful time, our third time here and we will be back.
