This hotel is close to Dublin airport. It offers large rooms at a reasonable price. Main restaurant closed early in the week, but bar food reasonable with large portions (esp. the ribs) Breakfast good tho a little more fruit needed. Staff very friendly Great stopover if flying from Dublin

I stayed here for the hottest three nights of the year. In fact I believe they were the hottest three nights for several years. Room 219 was very comfortable. If only the windows would have opened more than the one inch allowed by a retaining bar I might have slept more. I know air conditioning is a rare luxury in... More

DO NOT stay at this place if you have a Layover at Dublin Airport. This place uses False Advertising and a Misleading Shuttle Policy to lure unsuspecting travelers to the hotel. Be prepared to spend an EXTRA $40 US dollars on taxi rides to and from Dublin Airport. FALSE ADVERTISING - Kettles is actually 10.3 kilometers (or 6+ miles) from... More

This hotel caters to weddings and similar events. We found it quiet, and the food to be excellent. The bathrooms were basically clean, but there was a bit of mould around the shower head. The main bed was comfortable enough but the cot was a bit too soft. The pillows were not great. The grounds have a lovely gazebo and... More

We only stayed here for access to the airport. It'll cost you 30 Euro to get to and from the airport. The free shuttle bus does not run in May die to 'First Communions' which no sense to us.
