This is a beautiful and modern hotel and is probably best suited to business travelers. It is situated outside of the city center, about a 15-minute bus ride. The rooms are very well furnished and equipped. The airport bus stop is about a 5-minute walk from the hotel. The staff was very attentive and cooperative.

Even though this hotel is an independently owned hotel, I had a much better experience than in other chain hotels. I stayed there for 3 months and had an splendid stay.
Breakfast is excellent quality, with plenty to choose from. Lunch buffet is superb, and the a la carte menu is great (do not forget to try the penne pasta dish). If you are not satisfied enough with hotel food, just outside the door you will find a selection of the very best restaurants in Dublin.
Italian: Evana and Al bruschetto
Chinese: Kites is the best, but there is another one, but can not remember the name
Pubs: 3 or 4 different ones
Thai: A couple within walking distance
There is also a Cuban (Bella Cuba), an Indian restaurant, Roly’s bistro (expensive but worth it)
And my favorite the Donybrook Fair Café (is on Morehampot road)
As you can see, plety to choose from

The staff is very friendly and always willing to help.

The area is excellent, as long as it is located right in the middle of the Herbert Park, right on the Embassies district

I will definitely go back and recommend it

My husband, 16 yr-old daughter and I stayed here at the Herbert Park Hotel in July 2005. We were booked there by my husband's employer. We paid E30 to upgrade to a 'family room' which was larger and contained both King and Twin beds.
The room was nicely decorated, the bedding very comfy and the linens/amenities were generous. We were located on the second floor in the rear of the hotel. Our quiet room faced Herbert Park and we had lovely trees outside our window (I suspect the view from an upper floor would have been very nice).
There is a row of restaurants/pubs/shops just out of the front of the hotel and downtown Dublin was a quick taxi ride away. Since this is considered the 'Embassy District' the selection of cuisines was interesting! Skip breakfast at the hotel and go to the Insomnia Coffee Bar.
The airport shuttle bus stops just steps away from the front door and costs E12 for a roundtrip ticket.
We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Happy Trails!

We choose to stay at this hotel due to it's proximity to Lansdowne Road. We booked directly with the hotel's web site at a rate of E125 room only including free car parking.
Public areas are very spacious and there is a park with ponds and birds immediately to the rear of the hotel. A hotel with a park in the middle of Dublin!!
Bedrooms are well furnished but don't expect tea/coffee making facilities, in house movies or - my favourite gripe - Sky Sports.
We used the restaurant only once for dinner and had an excellent meal at a relatively reasonably cost.
This is a comfortable, efficient hotel that I would be happy to highly recommend.

We stay at this hotel quite often and have never been disappointed.
Staff very pleasant. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Beautiful location beside Herbert park. Quiet. Relaxing and enjoyable breakfast. Dinner in the Pavilion Restaurant was one of the best ever. Car parking free for guests. Good value all round.

Hi,

I have stayed at this hotel for years. However recently I have found the desk staff and reservation system to be awful. I tried to complain at the desk and later through email, but it was a long and frustrating effort.
They have promised that they are to improve and retrain front desk staff, but it is too little too late for me.

It is a really nice hotel, but I feel that they need to work harder for their customers.

Thanks

J

If you're travelling to Dublin and want a clean, quiet, place set apart from the expense of St. Stephen's Green and chaos of Temple Bar, consider the Herbert Park.
The rooms are clean and large enough. Ask for a park view...our kids love the duck pond just down the footpath and Herbert Park is a great place to sit and have a picnic lunch on a sunny day. Rest of the hotel is not terribly exciting, but if you're there as a tourist-on-the-move or on business, you won't have time to scrutinize the amenities anyway.
One problem that really stands out: we had breakfast there this morning (not staying in the hotel this time, just in the area) and it was all kinds of terrible! The buffet consisted of tinned fruit, bashed-in cereal packets and the mangiest scrambled eggs I've ever seen. Even the orange juice had an uncertain twang to it...if you do stay, head just across the road to Insomnia coffee shop and grab yourself a bagel instead!
