“Good place to stay 20mins from Dublin airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We have stayed at City North a couple of times now when flying out of Dublin airport. They offer free parking and quick & easy transfers to & from Dublin airport. Last time we stayed here the battery on our car had gone flat while we were on holiday but the night staff were very helpful and got one of their vehicles to jump start ours! Nothing was too much trouble!

Room are a good size - everything you need and plenty of room to work from with the free wifi etc.
Bar food is excellent value and whilst basic is very good quality. Would deffo recommend the burgers! Overall a very good hotel ideally located for Dublin airport or for visiting the Boyne Valley area. Will use again.

We spent one night in this hotel as the first night in Ireland as part of Shearing’s Northern Explorer Tour. We stayed in room 515. The room was smart and the bed was comfortable. Although the service for the evening meal was slow (1hour 40min to serve three courses and coffee) the quality of the food was good. Breakfast was self service and the quality was very good. The location of the hotel is a bit isolated but being right next to the motorway it handy for the airport. We found a heritage trail near the hotel and were able to visit the nearby village of Stamullen where a convenience store was open despite the lateness of the hour

thank you so much for your four circle review. We are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us as part of your group tour. The heritage trail to Stamullen is indeed a lovely stroll - especially on the gorgeous summer evenings we have enjoyed of late!

Thank you again for the review.

Travelled with my husband and two toddlers (6 and 4). The kids club on our arrival was very welcoming, the staff very friendly and it was great for the children to mix with others whom they got to see in the hotel afterwards and were able to smile and say hello to on recognition. I loved everything about this hotel - from the minute we arrived till the time we left - the friendliness of the staff at the different areas (reception, housekeeping, chefs, waitresses, bar) showed that the staff enjoyed working there and they couldn't do enough for us to assist us. Enough space in the car park for all cars even though the hotel was very busy for the weekend. Food was excellent and service very quick. The close proximity to Tayto Park and Newgrange allowed us to have a good night sleep and arrive at our activities rested. I cannot recommend this Hotel enough. It really ticks all the boxes. Thank you for making our weekend so enjoyable.

My wife and I stated in the CityNorth hotel after it was recommended to us by a friend We stayed there the night before we went to America to visit our family. we left our car in the car park and it has to be said that this alone was great value to be able to stay overnight , to get some sleep before our early morning shuttle to the airport.
it was on our way home that as we were about to join the M1 that we had an accident that resulted in 2 tyres being blown out. i walked back the CityNorth reception and met Cirian and David. After explaining what had happened, David used his own mobile to contact the local tyre recovery service and as it was a bank holiday in the Republic , that took three attempts. but nothing was too much trouble for these guys and duly the recovery truck got us on our way. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management especially Ryan Walker , Cirian and David for all their assistance.....It was indeed Above and beyond what one expects...Well Done CityNorth!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Great Location for Dublin Airport. Shuttle Bus was on time

Family 2 night break to funtasia and tayto park. Hotel very convenient to both. Early part of First night was mad as room 110 faced the games room which was like trying to get our one year old to sleep in a fun park it was noisy til 9.45 pm. Changed room the next day which solved the noise issue. With the games room and evening kids club the kids had a ball. Breakfast was brilliant. Staff good. Free morning take out coffee was a nice touch. Outdoor modern kids park was great. In general apart from staying in the noisy room the first night our stay was great.

Dear Guest
thank you so much for the review. It is so lovely to read such nice feedback and to hear how your family enjoyed all the facilities here at CityNorth Hotel. I am so sorry to hear there was noise from the games room until 9.45 - our house rules are that the games room closes at 9pm and I am so sorry that on this occasion there seems to have been a lapse in the policy.

So glad that you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us. We would love the opportunity to welcome you back.

With kindest regards
