Stayed here for one night to see Michael Buble.

Hotel was ok for price.
Found medication (not ours ) on carpet upon arrival and papers under the bed. Also the shower was cold in the morning - however warmed up by the 3rd person in out party using it. Kettle did not work either, had loose connection and had to sit cup on top of kettle for it to charge.

Location is ideal for visiting the O2 or Aviva stadium although it quite out the way for city centre dublin. About 10 minute walk from hotel to bus stop. However we walked from hotel to city centre which took about 30 minutes.

Hotel provides 02 shuttle bus however its 3 euros per person and we got a taxi for 10 euro so depends on your party size.

We did not have breakfast as it was too pricy - instead we had brunch in Temple Bar area.
All in all, its an ok hotel for short stay when visiting the O2 or Aviva stadium.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review.

Your comments regarding your room have been noted and passed on to housekeeping. Lansdowne Road DART commuter rail station is 150 metres from the hotel and is more convenient than the bus.

Full Irish breakfast is €10, with Continental €8. We look forward to having you with us again on your next visit to Dublin.

Myself and my wife stayed at the Sandymount hotel between the 21st and 23rd July and I was pleasantly surprised by the personal friendly service we both received. The room was a decent size and the beds comfortable. A bath was included in the en suite which was welcome, the room was clean and tea and coffee provided. The hotel was a short distance from the Dart and is close to the Aviva stadium. Thanks to the staff for a personal, friendly and efficient service.

Stayed here recently and I have to say I was really impressed, given that the price was so reasonable. This hotel is in the leafy Dublin suburbs and yet it is convenient to the city centre, stadium, transport links etc. The parking facilities in this hotel really impressed me for the following reasons:
1) FREE private parking
2) Loads of parking spaces
3) Secure parking
Ate in the hotel also and the food was superb, would highly recommend this hotel as alot of hotels in Dublin are overpriced and charge for crap parking!

The Sandymount Hotel was a wonderful part of our trip to Ireland. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood within a short walking distance to the Dart. Also the "Hop on Hop off" bus made pickups there in the morning which was very convenient for access to the various tourist attractions in Dublin. The staff at the Sandymount were all very welcoming and helpful with anything that was needed. They arranged "Take Away" breakfasts for us on the two mornings that we needed to leave before the breakfast hour. One evening we returned from a tour a short time after the dinner hour and they fixed us a delicious meal in the Bar/Restaurant. The rooms were neat and clean. We would highly recommend the Sandymount to anyone traveling to Dublin.

Dear Dave,

Thank you for your kind review. The “Hop on Hop off” tourist bus which picks up at the hotel is probably the best for the tourist attractions of Dublin.

I stayed at the Sandymount Hotel July 12-21, 2013. I am greatly impressed with the customer service. The ladies at the front desk (Emily, Siobhan, Beatrice, and a few others who's names I was unable to attain) were all extremely helpful and very personable. They were quick to provide anything I needed and even offered to have Tea and Toast brought to my room before service hours because I wasn't feeling well. Their knowledge of the area and tourist information was abundant and they were always giving of their time to help draw me a map of where I was needing to travel. The service staff in the dinning room was excellent. Everyone was very nice and had great customer service. Although I was a little confused when it took a long time to bring the check, I soon realized the cultural difference and was able to adapt to asking for my check being that they are not rushing you out the way it is in my home city. If ever I return to Ireland I would stay with them again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that the sun does not shine straight into. They do not have air conditioning and it c...

I have regularly been using the hotel over the last 3 months and have to say the reception team are fantastic. Indeed, a special mention goes out to Beatrice and Siobhan, they are welcoming, warm and efficient; nothing is too much hassle. After a long journey into Dublin it makes all the difference.

Thanks
