The hotel is absolutely beautiful! They have a pub with live music on Fridays and Saturday's. The hotel is centrally located near the train and beach. The distance from the hotel to Temple Bar is around 25 min of breath taking views.

If you booked this as an airport hotel, don't expect a shuttle bus or seeing planes in the air because there will see neither. This airport hotel is 20 miles away and a 40 euro cab ride one way from the airport. It is also 40 miles from Dublin so now you have an 80 euro cab ride if you... More

Our flight from Dublin was canceled and we stayed for 2 days. What would have otherwise been an inconvenience turned out to be one of the best parts of our trip.

My panegyric can be summarized by all the best you see from reviews before--location, roominess, nice appointments, quiet. The truly exceptional aspect of this hotel, as with any outstanding corporation like Virgin Trains, Fed Ex, Guinness, Marriott, is the staff. Andrea, Sianad, Anne, Paulina, Sean, and so many others were always there to help. In our case we had a... More
