Pretty decent place for the price paid. The staff were friendly, the view from the room was amazing, and everything was fairly well presented. The only bad thing I have to say about the place is that there was no vegetarian option on their menu apart from some sandwiches, but saying that, when we asked about it the staff tried... More

Spent 2 nights here end of June, will never stay here again!! Our original room was fairly large but looked very tired and dated, paint peeling of the wall, skirting boards had large chunks of the wood missing!! It looked as though it had been furnished from a junk shop!! We were moved to another room which was in better... More

On business, struggled to find a decent hotel for under £100 around Dublin. Tara Towers worked out at about £98 room only & I wouldn't return for half that price. Night 1 check into a rather tired room with not the cleanest looking ensuite & several cracked and broken tiles around the bath, then find that the wifi doesn't reach... More

Really nice hotel, very clean and tidy. Check in is at 2pm and free parking and wifi is available. Friendly and helpful staff as they accommodated us more than once and hotel itself has a beautiful view. It is also very close to all attractions. Really worth the stay and will be visiting again soon!

Myself and a friend stayed here recently for one night and overall it wasn't great. The room was filthy, the last persons dirty cups and spoons were left in the room, the carpet is fit to walk out the door and clean itself and the room badly needs to be painted and given a bit of TLC. But on the... More

Rooms were very dated but clean. Service was extremely poor staff were very rude from the moment we arrived. Room service was also not available, which was surprising! Price did not match the quality of the staff or room. Unfortunately, I would not recommend

The hotel is on the outskirts of Dublin. The room, although entitled "executive room", room 228 to be precise, welcomes you with a dangling plug,mold on the bathroom ceiling, , very worn furniture with stained armrest and bare box spring. You also have an interesting tye dye curtain, the result, I presume, of some failed experiment in washing. The curtain... More

It's an old hotel, with a rustic feel. Could do with a lick of paint and some money invested. Leaky shower, but clean and tidy. Service could do with an uplift, as there was only 1 chap on the bar and the waiting staff waited until everything ran out before replacing it.
