I would highly recommend the Royal Marine Hotel. Beautiful setting, clean rooms, very helpful staff, and Dun Laoghaire is a wonderful town to walk around, visit, and shop in. We had a seaside room and the view was outstanding! We took a walk out onto the pier in front of the hotel and again-breathtaking views! The food at the hotel... More

We were spending two weeks in Ireland and planned to spend the last few days in Dublin. While searching for hotels I didn't find anything I really liked, then someone told me about the Royal Marine. In it about twenty minutes from Dublin on the Dart however feels like a world away. It is an impressive building in a stunning... More

We asked for a sea view room and were happy to get one. There is construction going on just in front of hotel and we were awakened very early every morning. There is no water pressure in the shower and the blow dryer is a joke. While some staff tried very hard (we loved Jack in the pub) management seems... More

We stayed for 2 nights. We were upgraded to a sea view room as it was my husbands 40th birthday. On arrival in the room we were very impressed with the massive bed, the hotel had also written a note wishing my husband happy birthday and had left a fruit platter, which was a really nice touch. The only thing... More

Our room was next to the noisiest elevator I've ever encountered. Hear it all night. Door to bathroom did not close all the way! Barely any light. It seemed as if the food service was completely separate from the physical hotel.

This is a nice old hotel in a very pretty town with great support/service. It is a little care worn, and strangely decorated (heavy brown carpet?). Location is terrific. Food service is a little slow but that is likely because most are there on leisure and at a different pace than us business travelers.
