Recently stayed at Tara Towers and wasn't impressed. Room had view of graveyard. TV didn't work. Room was very tired. Stayed for 2 nights. Only had breakfast on the first morning. It was awful. Chain was missing from door so put chair in front at night to feel safe

Disappointing room - very tired, unloved and we felt unclean (curly hairs in the bath upon arrival for example, scuffs and stains on the curtains, furniture and bed frame -although the bedding was clean!) Rooms desperately in need of modernisation. I felt it was overpriced for what it was. Quiet hotel though, free parking, easy driving distance to Dublin and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tara towers hotel, Merrion Road, Dublin for two nights midweek. This is a nice hotel, the rooms are basic and clean with tea and coffee making facilities. We had a sea view room on the fifth floor, the view was amazing,however if traffic noise bothers you, then the front of this hotel is... More

Let's start with positives, clean, comfortable bed warm shower. Dislikes, everything feels tired, the smell in the lift, corridors and bedroom was of a horrible over compensating air freshener which was gross, the TV in my bedroom didn't work, the wifi didn't work, the phone in my room to tell reception these things in my room didn't work, didn't work!!...

Tara Towers is quite away out of Dublin centre, however, the bus stop is right outside the hotel and Bootstown station is five minutes walk away. The hotel staff especially Alison, were fantastic. They couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. We had a room on 5th floor facing the rear of the hotel. Unfortunately the extractor fan in... More

I thought it was good value for money, and very handy for DART etc. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff very helpful. When they advertise that the DART is a 5 minute walk from the hotel they were spot on.

I don't usually give poor reviews but we had too many issues here not to. The hotel itself is in serious need of modernisation. Basically we fought with our door to get it open every time, the shower randomly stopped working and my bed was clearly missing a wheel which meant I was sleeping on a see-saw. I didn't bother...

On a short stop-over at the Tara Towers Hotel two days ago, I called into PJ Branagan's Pub for their carvery lunch. Although it's only a small carvery compared with other hotels, it seems popular enough judged by the amount of patrons enjoying their meal. I found the food delicious and the foreign staff friendly. Prices were competitive and it... More

Very good location near Dart (5 minutes walk) for visit to the city. Had stayed previously and found hotel had been updated since last year including free on site parking. Enjoyed executive room which was quiet and on the 4th floor. The TV programmes are very limited for an hotel of this class and the room rates vary daily depending... More
