My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in one of their junior suites. The room was grand, if a bit dated. The bathroom was a step back in time, but not in a bad way. The views from our room were magnificent. Reception staff were for the most part helpful and the bar area was a good starting...

Really nice welcoming clean hotel in the centre of Dun Laoghaire, Dublin. Price reasonable plus there are often good offers, centrally positioned, buses and train station etc walking distance. Own spa, gym and restaurant but also offers pub food from Harry's Pub till late. Not our 1st stay here and won't be the last.

Arrived late on a Friday afternoon and found the reception staff most helpful, my room had a great view inland to the hills to the south if Dublin Hotel location is excellent just a short distance on foot to the sea or the main shopping street with quite a good choice of places to eat or find the public transport...

The Royal Marine excelled themselves as always providing a wonderful evening meal and dining experience when I attended with family recently. Furthermore they excelled by assisting a group of children brought by the charity Outreach Moldova. Excellent service and a credit to Irish business. Great support provided by Martha O'Connor in the hotel's sales and marketing team.

Stayed 1 night on October the hotel has changed much since I regularly stayed there 10 years ago! Nice room on the top floor with views over the harbour. Reception was slow preferring to answer long phone calls when guests standing and the car park is a challenge if you are not driving a micro car! Great location for local...

An old local glory, would I call this hotel in Dun Laoghaire. Just a 30 min ride with Dart (train) or bus, but everything is in 5 min walk of the hotel. I would not choose this hotel to stay, just for visiting Dublin, but for a concert night in the area like us, I would bother to look for...

What sells this hotel is its great location. It's a beautiful suburb of Dublin with its own charming streets for shopping and dining. Easy transportation to main Dublin via taxi or DART. When we arrived we were given a well appointed room in what I would call the bowels of the hotel with a window out onto utility equipment. We...

This was our second time staying at the Royal Marine. It really is an ideal location, over looking the sea and adjacent to the DART. The general facilities are great with good service and a decent bar and restaurant. The rooms are slightly on the tired side but I certainly wouldn't let that fact deter anyone from a stay!

The staff at the front desk were friendly and welcoming. The waiting staff could not have been nicer. We had a fabulous room on the seventh floor.
