“Airport Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for only one night. However, we were allowed to check in early. Because of the hotel's location on Malahide Road, we were able to catch a bus in front of the hotel and visit central Dublin. The hotel itself was a pleasure. The reception staff were extremely personable and helpful. Our room was spacious, spotless, and equipped with all the necessary amenities. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel, and both were excellent, in terms of quality of preparation and service. The driver of the courtesy shuttle had a great sense of humor and was extremely attentive and helpful with our luggage. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone flying out of Dublin.

Room Tip: Can't say. But most rooms have a good view of the surrounding area.

I usually stay at a Marriott but none close to the airport and my husband had Hilton points that need to be used !!
Early December I traveled from Belfast to Dublin airport by bus arriving 6.30pm and had great difficulty in finding where to pick up the hotels shuttle bus in the dark, but as a previous reviewer has stated this is due to airports lack of signs rather than the hotels fault.
It was a busy night so the wait in the cold was rather long ! and I was rather surprised to find that instead of the hotel being on the airport perimeter we were headed back up the motorway I'd just come down !
However despite the 15- 20 min ride the drivers are very professional and friendly and will advise which shuttle to book for a return journey depending on your flight time.
The check in was fast and welcoming and they sorted out a phone query I had for international codes graciously. (there was no phone book in room.)
King bed and huge room , wonderful view 4th floor , Very pleased with the accommodation. Clean and large bathroom.
I ate in the bar as the dining room was fully booked,(the hotel appeared to be full of overseas athletes )
Fish and chips plus Guinness was excellent and plentiful. The bar manager asked if there was a problem with the meal as I had not eaten all the fish and seemed concerned and asked if he could replace with anything else despite me assuring him that the food was very good. ( I'd had a large lunch )
I had an early flight the next morning and as I was flying to USA ( you have to clear customs as well as security and this adds to the normal time you need to make your flight, allow at LEAST two and a half hours ) I hate the alarm connected to the TV as I am always worried that it won't work ! so I called down to reception for a 4.30am call
.At 4.30am exactly the call came and it was the receptionist not an automated call....very impressed ,wish the Marriott would take note!
Driver waiting to load luggage in reception and the shuttle left promptly at the advertised time
( I believe they now charge for the return journey,be aware if you are low on euros !)
All in all I would stay again.

Stayed on business recently. Tried it instead of Radisson at airport which is poor. This is a better than average Hilton. The hotel is a couple of miles from the terminal, but there is an efficient shuttle bus with friendly staff on both trips. 10 minute drive. Pick up point took a bit of finding adjacent to T 1, but that's due airport signage, not the Hilton

Good and spacious room, €95 for B and B with newspaper mineral water and chocs in room. Good breakfast. Comfortable bed, good bathroom

Would recommend

coasting along on the name recognition. The underground pay parking was hostile, you had to park the car and get out of it, in order to contact reception by intercom to open the gates to let you in. The signage down there for the hotel entrance, and then again for the exit was hard to find and poorly lit.

The superior room was large and overfurnished, but the bed looked cold and uninviting, covered as it was just with white sheets We had to snuggle under the supplied dressing gowns to feel cosy. There was only one easy chair. It took up loads of space with its footstool but there was only room for one person on it.

The bar food was lacklustre. I thought you couldn't go wrong with a Beef and Guiness pie plus cooked vegetables. The pastry was good, but the meat tough and the gravy very thin and overly greasy. The cooked vegetables were cold and crisp.

On the plus side, the bathroom and toiletries were nice and the staff friendly.

Needed to crash for a few hours before early morning flight. Free shuttle van to/from the airport is a good thing. Small room is very clean, but with two twin beds makes for a very crowded space. Hotel boasts free wireless internet, but that's only if you're in the lobby or the restaurant. If you want to use WiFi in your room, it costs 5 euro. Someone will have to explain that one to me. I guess they want their lobby filled with irritated people looking at iPhones. We checked out before breakfast hours, so the kitchen prepared brown-bag breakfasts for us. Fruit and coffee and cheese and granola bars. That was a nice touch. The lack of free in-room WiFi bothers me. 3/5 stars.

These review concerns 3 separate stays in 2012. Our observation as follows:

Our stay in November was slightly disappointing. The room we received on the fourth floor was renovated, but the mattress was lumpy and the duvet too short, one of us was sometimes partly uncovered. Our sleep wasn't as deep and restful as usual.

We noticed some other changes.

The furniture went from light to dark brown.

There were new elegant dark blue folders containing the Hotel Directory and the new In Room Dining Menu. The key cards had also different prints - instead of brown they were now also dark blue.

In our opinion that had changed for the better.

The breakfast the next morning was disappointing and not up to the high standards we were used to at this property. The smoked salmon looked as if it was over the use before date, the scrambled eggs were watery and the coffee too bitter for my taste.

We weren't exactly looking forward to our following stay.

It was a prepaid rate, and we had requested an e-standby upgrade to a Hilton Suite.


To our delight the upgrade was confirmed at check in. A late check out at 2 PM was granted without quibble.

The suite was large and located on the third floor. The colors were all kept in brown and the lightning was mellow. When entering there was a small visitor's toilet to the left and a dining area with a table and chairs to the right. At the entrance wooden floor was used. There was also a huge sofa, a big chair and a smaller one, a writing desk and large flat screen TV with international and regional channels. The credenza contained the mini bar. The living room area was carpeted.

The bed room was large with a king sized bed. This time around the mattress, pillows and duvet was fine. We slept like babies with the new Serenity Bed. There was also a writing desk, wardrobe with a safe and a large flat screen TV.

The bathroom was large with a separate bath and shower, sink, toilet and a weighing scale.

We soon realized that the door to the mini bar wouldn't open, so I called reception. Normally the mini bar lock can be released from there, but unfortunately it didn't work. Somebody from maintenance was sent. He arrived within minutes and made it work again.

We tried the Burnells Bar this time around for dinner and were pleased with the new menu. It contains a healthy section, and we choose Tia Maria, tea, hot chocolate and orange juice, the Grilled Aubergine (eggplant) with rice, ratatouille and mixed salad, penne pasta with pesto, chicken and cherry tomatoes and sticky toffee pudding. All was very delicious.

The breakfast had improved again and was back to the old high standards.

Check out was quick and to our surprise the drink we had from the mini bar wasn't charged.

Overall we had a relaxing time and were looking forward to our next stay on the Thank you rate - a bargain of 37.50 Euro / ca. 50 USD - at the end of December. Again we had an e-standby for the Family Room and the suite. We didn't expect an upgrade, because the hotel was fully booked. We were upgraded to a Deluxe Room. To our surprise it was a corner room on the fifth floor. The interior has changed a bit since the renovation, and the rooms have been reclassified.
We were happy and comfortable as in the suite, so there was a big improvement compared against our stay in November.

Other changes we noticed.

The Diamond welcome amenities have improved. On our first stay we received four bottles of (still and sparkling) water, fruits and mint chocolate. In our opinion the mint chocolate tastes awful. During our last two stays the unbranded mint chocolates were replaced with Lily O’Brien’s chocolates. Much better and very much appreciated.

The shuttle bus drivers and reception staff are still the same. The restaurant and bar staff has changed. They are much younger. There is no cocktail menu available in the bar. Asked if there were any available, we were told there were three choices. I remember two, the Cosmopolitan and Sex on The Beach. On the other side the bar offers a wide variety of liquors and beer.

The problem with the water (too hot, too cold or change in temperature while taking a shower from scalding hot to ice cold) has been nearly eliminated. There are still some minor temperature fluctuations.

Another change we don't like but grudgingly accept is the charge of 2 Euro (ca. 2.65 USD) per person from the hotel to the airport when using the shuttle bus. It is still free from Zone 14 at the airport. Children under 12 can also use the shuttle free of charge. The explanation why the surcharge was introduced on 01.01.13 is that the costs of running the shuttle are very high and to offset some of them customers have to pay. We understand this, but it's very unfortunate in our opinion.

The overall experience has improved for us, so we are going to be very happy in future to stay again more often at the Hilton Dublin Airport.

Would we stay at the Hilton Dublin Airport again? YES!

Would we recommend the Hilton Dublin Airport? YES!
