North Star Hotel
Ranked #63 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed April 25, 2012

This hotel (the premier club suites) has upgraded over the past couple of years and is now a very comfortable property. The king size bed was very comfortable and once I closed the window the room was noise free. As the hotel is beside the train station you would imagine (as in the past) that it would feel like trains were in the room but due to good double glazing, I heard absolutely nothing. The staff are very pleasant and were very attentive. A good property in the centre of the city.

Room Tip: Request the premier suite rooms, there is an extra charge but based on the age of the property proba...

Dear CulruaIreland,

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our property.

I am glad to read that you enjoyed our upgraded features since you last stayed.

We have just launched a new bedroom wing in the hotel and I would be more than happy
to show these rooms on your return.

Kind Regards,

Excellent location opposite Connolly station and close to centre of Dublin, Spacious and clean rooms, staff very friendly and really helpful. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Landed around 8-30pm caught bus right outside airport to round corner from hotel. We checked in and went straight out to get some food. Most of the bars etc serve food till about 9-45. Lots to do and see in Dublin - we had 4 days and would go again.

We stayed at the North Star in Dublin for the weekend, arriving quite late on the Friday evening. It is about 15 mins by taxi from the airport costing about 20 Euro's. The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and spacious, the only slight niggle was that they had ashtrays in them and you could detect a slight aroma of stale smoke. We didn't mention this to the hotel and I'm sure if we had they would have tried to rectify it. The hotel had entertainment both Friday and Saturday evening which went on until at least midnight. which was good fun and seemed to be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The bar staff probably could have been a bit frendlier. We only booked in for B & B but breakfast was just what we needed after a heavy day and night of sampling Dublins finest Guinness. There was a good buffet selection of a "full Irish " breakfast, plus cereals, toast and fresh fruits, Dining was a relaxed affair. The hotel is in a great location for Temple Bar where a lot of the day/nightlife takes place. Just a 10 minute walk, close enough to be near by but not in a really noisy location. I don't know if I would stay for a week but definitley recommend for a weekend.

We booked this place off Booking.com and was absolutely ideal. We were in the city for a gig in the O2, so got the train up of a Friday afternoon from Cork, hopped on the Luas at Hueston and got off near Connelly Station and the hotel was straight across the road! We went to reception and got upgraded to suites, which was a nice start! The rooms were immaculate and bathrooms also with plenty supplies! The staff were immensely helpful and we would be repaying a visit here again if needed! Cost wise it is expensive but you can get good deals!

Our first trip to Ireland. Three options to get to the hotel from the airport; taxi, Paddywagon bus, and the local bus. We paid 10euro for a family bus pass. Taxi and Paddywagon were around 20 euro. Bus dropped us off less than a block away. We had 2 rooms and they were originally located on different floors. Hotel staff quickly worked on getting us the same floor. Rooms were clean and large compared to other European hotels.The hotel was located a short walk to several areas. We started our days early and ended them between 8pm and 11pm. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices. On the 4th floor the train was minimal with noise and didn't disturb sleep or conversation. There was an ATM and small store right around the corner. Paddywagon bus was used to get back to the aiport at 5am.

Avoid the bar but apart from that great. Nice room and even a dinky wee fitness suite. We did not have breakfast (lots of shops nearby, saves on cost) and it has a central location. Sheriff St is dodgy but no tourist ought to head there anyhow.

Dear Ciaran91,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

Avoid the bar? Can you elaborate on this point?

Our gym is fully equiped with free weights, weight machines and cardio equipment.
Breakfast at the hotel is €10.95 for a buffet, with hot and cold selections, it is great value.

Damien
