I intended all along to write a positive review, although I'm quite surprised by some of the negatives here such that I'm wondering did I miss something? For my stay (one night, like most I imagine), I went for the Roof Top Suite, which wasn't really that much more than the normal rooms on offer and regardless, the hotel in general was one of the best value airport stays around Dublin Airport.
The check-in was quick and painless, the room certainly very acceptable (see pictures); very spacious, good temperature and the sound insulation such that we really weren't bothered by any aircraft noise during the night/early morning. The bathroom was palatial and very nicely done - overall very impressed with the room.
The restaurant I would (like another user) have to comment on the lack of staff and difficulty in attracting same. The difficulty in getting hold of them seems to stem to there being so few, but it's not really acceptable - I'm sure they can predict at least slightly better how many staff are realistically required on an evening.
That said, we were there to make it easy to be at the airport stress-free the next morning and it did exactly that and remained one of our favourite hotels of the whole holiday, so that says something. I would certainly stay there again if required, the rooftop suite (if you can go for it, then do) was really very nice, tasteful, and very spacious.
Check-out next morning was a breeze, into the shuttle and away within a few minutes (I don't know if there was supposed to be a schedule for that...the guy just sort of left when it seemed we had enough people?!).
