We were greeted with smiles all very relaxed! There was a wedding on in the hotel and they were very busy so we were a bit apprehensive about the nights sleep! We ate in the bar 2 beautiful steaks again all very efficient with a bit of humour thrown in. Got a great nights sleep no noise from the wedding... More

Unfortunately our room was on the High Street and had a faulty double glazed window, the noise continued through the night. The room was spacious but old in design, the hotel offers free parking next door, Dublin is a 40 minute train ride away. There is a great Thai restaurant within a 5 minute walk and the sea is close... More

We had a fantastic suite with jacuzzi bath and four poster bed. We had a fantastic meal in the restaurant and the breakfast was beautiful - excellent standard of cuisine. This hotel was perfect for us coming from Northern Ireland and saving a long drive the morning of the flight. The staff were excellent and I can't speak more highly... More

Nice little bar downstairs #freewifi and it's right in the heart of Balbriggan. The beach is situated right behind it next to the train station which is a short commute to Dublin city centre. Great venue for weddings and party's too

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice. They always seem to have good deals on with sites like Groupon. Rooms are lovely. Clean and everything you would expect. Restaurants are both lovely - there is a pub menu and a nicer restaurant. We have eaten in both and food was really lovely. We went on a weekend... More

Lovely stay - reasonably priced midweek break. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We've eaten in the restaurant before, a good variety and reasonably priced. Lacked in atmosphere - but it was a quiet time. The cocktails in the bar weren't great, we had a mojito without mint leaves, a daiquiri which was more like a slushy. We chose to... More

While checking-in the receptionist was very blase. We had to ask what way the lifts were and then later on we had to ask her when the restaurant was and both occasions I felt that she was thinking that I should know where they are. We booked a double room and what we actually got was just two single beds... More
