“Lovely hotel, not much to do in area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

Cannot fault the hotel, rooms lovely, large in size and very clean. The hotel is about 20mins from the airport and perfect for business travel. However as there is very little to do in the area I wouldnt recommend for pleasure, unless you are prepared to fork out for taxis into Dublin (which I was very disappionted with and despite the misses asking I won't be taking her there).

If I was you look for a flight into Europe and go somewhere warmer.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for choosing the Crowne Plaza for your recent visit to Dublin. I am very grateful that you took the time to review the hotel and found no fault with the hotel itself.

I am disappointed and even a bit surprised that you felt that there was not much to do in the area as the hotel is located right in the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre which has 180 shops, a 9 screen Cinema, LeisurePlex, Theatre, Library, 20 Restaurants, 3 bars, Night Club, 2 Live Music Venues and 3 retail Parks.

We do hope to welcome you back at some stage in the future.

We were delighted to be participants at an event recently in your hotel. I must say that the event was ran very successfully and by some very warm and genuine staff. Great to see that you are flying the flag for Irish Hospitality so well in Dublin

My wife and I with our 2 young children had a very pleasant stay recently.

This hotel has a genuine 4 star feel. It is a very modern hotel with a feeling of luxury throughout.

Our room with 2 Queen size beds wasn't overly spacious but was very tastefuly decorated. The bathroom was very well finished and conveniently had a separate shower area to the bath.

Kids under 12 dine free and our 2 got to make their very own pizza with the chef. It was a real treat for them as they got to wear chef's hats and aprons. We all very much enjoyed our dinner. Breakfast was also enjoyable with a very good choice - porridge, pancakes, waffles, etc.

We found all of the staff to be both friendly and professional.

We normally select a hotel with a pool which is handy to keep the kids entertained but other than that I would have no hesitation in staying again and indeed would look forward to it.

Overall it was very good value for this standard of a hotel.

Spent two nights in the Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown for work and really enjoyed my stay. The room and bed were very comfortable and spacious and it had all the mod cons that you would expect from new hotel. The bathroom was a real strong point with a separate bath and shower and lots of space.

The room service menu had a good deal of choice but there was a four euro charge which was a bit steep. Could not fault the food that was well prepared and delivered on time.
The bar at the hotel runs promotions and we got to avail of free drinks and a finger food platter that was also nice. All the staff went out of their way to assist when asked.

The only sticking point was that there seemed to be a lot of ticking and banging possibly from the heating pipes or pumps. If you happen to be a light sleeper or jumpy at night then this would be a big concern.

Over all I really liked the Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown and Id definitely stay again.

Surrounded by shops and restaurants this hotel is located in the Blanchardstown Centre just off the M50 and only 10 minutes by car or taxi from Dublin Airport. The hotel has a friendly bar. Rooms are modern, clean and well furnished - the King sized beds are huges and very comfortable. Big bathroom with walk in shower (and seperate bath) Friendly and professional reception staff and free parking make this an excellent hotel for business or leisure.

We stayed at the Crown Plaza in Blanchardstown for 3 nights in October to visit friends.
Its very close to the large shopping centre, about 30 seconds walk in fact. Also plenty of resaurants locally. The rooms were spacious, clean, well decorated. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious! I even had seconds. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and will certianly stay again next time we visit. The people of Dublin are the nicest people I have met anywhere in the world!
