My daughter had her wedding reception with you on 1stJune 2013 and I just wanted to compliment you and all your staff for such a terrific day. From start to finish – your staff were exceptional in there dealing with the guests. I work with the public and am very aware as to how challenging it can be at times ! and how you always hear complaints rather than compliments. I would not hesitate in recommending your hotel and I thank you most sincerely for giving us treasured memories of the most important day in our lives. My daughter availed of the package deal and all of the people involved in that were also extremely professional in their dealings with us.

Stayed four nights and, once again, excellent value with a brilliant view. Great Irish breakfast included. Easy access to Dublin centre and great hikes around Howth peninsula. Thanks again to the staff.

Just come back from a weekend stay at this hotel for my son's wedding. He held the reception here. We arrived from Manchester at this hotel at about 9 am just to drop our luggage off as we knew book in time was 2.00 pm but we were given the rooms straight away. The rooms are clean and had everything including iron. ironing board, hair dryer, shampoo. shower gel etc. We had a sea view that was amazing. The food was most probably the best we have had in a hotel and the staff could not do enough for you. Trying to think of one negative but can't apart from we had to go home after 2 days. We will definately go back again. Howth is a nearby fishing village and a must to visit. Well done Marine Hotel!!!

To the parents of the Groom,

Thank you for your review of our Hotel and our Wedding service to you.

We appreciate that this is a most important day and I am delighted that we delivered on what we promised with C & A when they came to view the Marine Hotel last year.

It is a pleasure to host spectacular Weddings here at the Marine Hotel, with its lawns rolling down directly onto Dublin Bay; it is a truly special venue for romantic Wedding.

I wish you both the very best and congratulations again to the Happy couple!

My very kindest regards,

John Walsh

We arrived to our waterfront room and found the accommodations clean and well appointed. The Marine Hotel is located in a terrific spot 2 blocks from the train station and within walking distance of the harbor village of Howth, and a 20 minute taxi ride from Dublin Airport. We loved the place as the room was perfect, the views were spectacular, and the location was within a 20 minute train ride to Dublin's Connolly station. We experienced the city and countryside in a perfect location at a warm and friendly hotel. The Schooner Bar staff was prompt and courteous, and our food was well prepared and served quickly. This place seemed like home right away, a comfortable welcoming hotel with attentive staff and very reasonable rates. We will stay at the Marine Hotel on our next visit to Ireland! We were very happy here.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments on tripadvisor and congratulations on your Anniversary!
I hope you enjoyed your stay in Ireland and that you have safely returned home to the states.

It was our pleasure to welcome you to Sutton, just outside the very pretty fishing village of Howth.
It is a fantastic location to experience Dublin’s beautiful coastal villages: Portmarnock, Malahide, Howth and Sutton while only 20 minutes on the DART line to the city centre.

I hope that your review will help many more guests choose and enjoy all the Marine Hotel has to offer.

Kind regards,

John Walsh

Stayed at Marine Sutton for short break - very comfortable bedroom, friendly staff and good breakfast. WiFi in public areas but none in bedroom. Swimming pool was good and that area well maintained - there is a nice area at the back of the hotel but the flower beds could do with some gardening care.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments on the Marine Hotel.
I must apologise for the Wifi issue, as it has been addressed on tripadvisor in the past few comments, there is obviously an issue that we can address now that we are aware of it.

Thank you for the comments on our pool, it is lovely and quiet and I hope you enjoyed it.
I appreciate the point raised on our flower beds, and we have addressed this as it is BBQ season and they are now running on Friday evenings for the summer.

I hope that you stay with us again soon on the shores of Dublin Bay.

Warm regards,

John Walsh

This is an old world hotel with a lovely relaxed atmosphere about the place. The rooms were spacious and the one I was in had sea views. The only down side is that the wifi didn't work in the bedroom and I had to go to the bar. It did work in the lobby but the French doors to the back gardens were open and I found it a little chilly there. The hotel has beautiful gardens and a patio area to sit out in and the beach is close by. It is situated right in the village of Sutton, a short walk from the DART station. Howth and all it scenery is a DART stop further along the line or a good 40 minute walk. We ate is the hotel on the first night and in the Chinese (The Golden Elephant) across the road on the 2nd night. Both were very good but service in the hotel was slow. Didn't use the pool so can't comment

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments about the Marine Hotel, in its amazing location on the shores Dublin Bay, 5 minutes from the pretty fishing Village of Howth and only 20 minutes from the city centre by DART.

I must apologise about your Wifi issue, we clearly had a major problem with our signal and this is being addressed currently, I know it will be fixed for your next visit to us.

I hope that you will visit us soon and we look forward to it.

We recently had a family get together in the Marine Hotel. Some of the family travelled so they stayed and the rooms look great, comfortable, clean and modern, there is also a swimming pool and the most amazing views across Dublin Bay to Dun Laoghaire and beyond to the Sugar Loaf. The food in the restaurant was excellent, great value but really tasty. The staff are really friendly and we felt a huge amount of personal attention with each one wanting to make our event special (even though it was just a small gathering). We finished with drinks on the beautiful lawn which runs right down to the beach - and did I mention the view, you could be in the Mediterranean but Ireland is nicer.

Great place to visit, free wifi and stunning views. Really want to go back

Room Tip: Great location, easily reached from Dublin and the airport. Ask for a sea view room, the view is stu...

Dear Guest,

What a glowing review, thank you!

We are so proud of our Hotel on the Bay, and when the sun shines and you are sitting in our huge suntrap Garden, you could be anywhere!

The view, well you have to see it to understand it! From our gardens you can see Howth Hill, the Sugarloaf mountains, Dun Laoighaire, Bray Head, the Aviva Stadium, and at night, the Spire on O Connell St! It truly is spectacular.

Our Meridian Restaurant is a wonderful place to dine, the Hotel staff is friendly and very professional, the food is of the highest quality and our promise to you is excellence.

I wait to welcome you back to the Marine Hotel in the future,

My best regards,

John Walsh
