Accommodation in Sandycove


I'm coming over to Sandycove on business in April and my hubby is going to come with me so we can have a weekend away. Can anyone recommend somewhere to stay in the sandycove area, like a good pub or hotel or would it better for us to stay in central Dublin as we intend to go into Dublin for some nightlife!

Hey EP.

Burlington Hotel that was mentioned previously is roughly 5 miles distance from Sandycove and requires a bit of a walk to get to direct public transport links.

Dun Laoghaire is the closest town to Sandycove (10 minute walk) and there are a number of hotels there that you could try. The coast stretching from Sandymount to Killiney is generally considered the most desirable property location, but be warned it is quite suburban. That said there are restaurants and bars and you are at the foot of the Dublin mountains and at the gateway to Wicklow.

Taxis are deregulated so if you want a night out in dublin city you could always get a cab back which will set you back 25-30 Euro.

Im a native of Sandycove but living in Canada right now. Sandycove is really just a small suburb with no town centre. There a few B and Bs in the area but nothing exceptional.(although check out www.toursimireland.com website - search undr BandB - County Dublin, -Dun Laoghaire -and youll find a nice one on Islington Ave in Sandycove). As you might know pubs in Irealnd dont tend to 'do' accomodation. Nearest hotels and decent B&Bs are in DunLaoghaire (15 minute walk!) or Fitzpatricks Castle Hotel in Killiney - a quality hotel but a little off the beaten track if you dont have a car.

Restaurants - try 'Bistro Vino' on Glasthule Road and if you like seafood 'Cavistons' restaurant also on Glasthule Road is a must.

The DART suburban train service is a great way to get into Dublin City Centre and is relatively inexpensive - there are stops at Dun laoghaire, Sandycove and Nearby Dalkey - a nice village for pubs, restaurants and hill walking.

I would recommend Coolfin House in Dun Laoghaire. It is right beside Sandycove DART station for access to the city and right off Dun Laoghaire main street for pubs and clubs. The late night bus route 7N from the city goes right by the house itself if you're planning on heading out in town.

Stay on the DART line as another correspondent says - along the coast. Good B & B's in Ballsbridge Aberdeen and Merrion Lodge - check out www.lucindaosullivan.com - to view.

Bistro Vino mentioned by overseas resident is now closed. The best restaurant now in Sandycove is Rasam - a superb modern Indian Restaurant. Dalkey too has good restaurants and pubs.

There really isnt that much accomodation in Sandycove, the nearest place is either Dalkey or DunLaoghaire. You could try the kingston Hotel in Dun Laoghaire. Or try the Kiliney Castle Hotel in Kiliney. It's within walking distance of Dalkey which is great-full of pubs(finnegans being the best) and plenty of gorgeous restaurants, never mind boeing a beautiful village on the coast. Plenty of fab walks etc
