We had booked a 2 Nights stay in Dublin for St Patrick week end and after realizing that we were 20 minutes North of Dublin we were going to change the booking for a closer hotel but changed our minds thinking we would see how we would feel about it after the first night.

The hotel is very clean with very comfortable bedrooms. Where ever we went in the hotel we were met with very friendly and helpful staff from the reception, Breakfast room and bar. everyone made a feel very welcome indeed. We did not have our evening meal there but breakfast was very good indeed and the staff there were just great.

So if anyone is looking for a nice place to stay this hotel really offer good value for money.

We stayed this past St. Patricks day weekend on the Saturday and Sunday nights. I thought it was a bit expensive, but considering it was St. Patricks weekend and we had booked it fairly recently I was happy to pay on this occasion. The breakfast was quite good, a good selection of cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt and various cheeses, and of course a fry up. Everything was very good except the scrambled egg, which was hard and had a skin on the outside as if it had been kept under a grill to keep warm. However, it was a small complaint really.
The family room was very large, with 2 large king sized beds. The bathroom was also quite large, and overall the room was very comfortable, although we had left some rubbish in a bag in the room to be disposed of and it was still there when we returned. Also there was an empty bottle of beer next to the elevator, even though housekeeping were actually on the floor at the time. We had ham sandwiches from the cavery for lunch and they were excellent, the hot food looked very good as well but we were dining out so didn't avail of this. There was a large number of propel coming in for lunch which is always a good sign. The swimming pool was a fine size, there was a steam room and sauna, and they were very clean. Overall we were quite happy with our stay.

We have stayed at the Marine on numerous occasions over the last 25 years & can highly recommend the hotel. It provides lovely views over Dublin Bay with a good bus & dart service close by for easy access to Dublin City. A 20 minute walk takes you to Howth which has a good variety of restaurants.

Howth and Sutton are fairly lacking in hotel accommodation. I stayed at the hotel because I was going to a New Years Eve party in Howth.

The hotel is large, with good parking, and has pleasant reception and public areas. Breakfast was good, with an a la carte menu and a small but good buffet. Staff are friendly.

At the same time, it is expensive for what it is. I was surprised to find, after paying €110 per night, that the toilet bowl in the bathroom had clearly not been cleaned. The lady on reception organised for it to be cleaned...but...still not ideal The room was very cold even with the radiator at maximum and the shower was very poor. I mentioned this at check-out and later heard other guests complaining about having been "freezing" during the night.

All in all, this could be a hotel for you if you need to be within a couple of km of Howth or Sutton. If this is not a priority for you, I would look elsewhere, and I would definitely not make this a "destination hotel" for a holiday or short break.

We spent our last two nights in Ireland at the Marine Hotel. We wanted to be near Dublin as well as the airport. What an excellent choice! The staff members were all friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. We ate at the restaurant on site. The food was excellent and very elegantly served. The bar was a fun place to relax and eat. We would definitely stay at the Marine Hotel again.
