“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

It all began well with our arrival to the hotel at 0630 after an overnight flight to Dublin. Damian greated us at the front desk and he went above and beyond to get us checked into our three rooms early. We were escorted by Damian to the breakfast buffet to eat while we had a short wait for our rooms to be ready early for us. The breakfast was amazing, the service was exceptional, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the location was great-just a few kilometers walk or by bus or taxi into the heart of downtown Dublin.

We stayed in the Croke Park hotel for two nights ( 16th November- 18th November). We booked a deal via Travel Zoo for 170 euros for the entire stay. This included two nights bed and breakfast, one evening meal, two cocktails, two tickets to Guinness Store House and an upgrade to an executive room.The entire experience was absolutely divine. From the welcome at reception to the check out experience, everything was perfect. The room was clean, modern and spacious . The bathroom had a separate shower and was spotless. There was a great variety of food for breakfast and staff were very friendly and efficient. The menu for the evening meal was very limited with a choice of 3 starters, main courses and desserts. The food was of a good standard but choices uninspiring. At night there was a turn down service available with a butlers chocolate provided beside the bed and a lavender scented hot water bottle placed in the bed. Overall everything was of 5 star quality with staff going the extra mile to make the stay exceptional

Room Tip: upgrade to the executive floor with executive lounge

I have recently returned from a few days in Dublin with my (older!) mum. We stayed at the Croke Park Hotel and from the moment we arrived until we left we had the friendliest and most helpful service. The hotel itself is immaculate and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Hot towels when we arrived, offer of use of the lounge until our rooms were ready (we were very early) bottles of water for our journey, help booking excursions etc. The rooms were lovely and very clean and the food in the restaurants was great. The hotel itself is a little bit out of the main area of Dublin but even for mum and me it was no more than a 15 - 20 minute walk, and on the way back there are plenty of taxis so its not really a problem. It also means that its very quiet at night and I had great nights sleep as a result. The only one drawback (if you can even call it that) is that there are not many restaurants or bars nearby so you really have to stay at the hotel (not an issue in my opinion) or go back into town if you want a night out, again not an issue but you do need taxis. I would definitely stay there again.

Just returned from a three night stay at the Croke Park, Dublin and it definitely lived up to the excellent reviews on TA.
Able to access our room at 10.30 am, very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable quiet room, spacious public areas and a 15 min walk away from the main sights.
Our first visit to Dublin , hopefully will be back soon.

We stayed in the Croke Park hotel last week for 3 days. It was an excellent experience - large rooms, king-size bed, great bathroom, free wi-fi. Only downside was that it was a 10-euro taxi ride to city center (or the #16 bus runs there too). Also, the king bed room was a 30-euro/night upgrade. But that upgrade also came with 2 free drinks a night, access to the executive breakroom (free coffee, free continental breakfast), free turndown service (with a lavender-scented hot pack!), and nice robes.

I don't know if it was normal, but there was no fridge in the room, only a minibar.

Watch out for the smoking rooms - make sure to request a non-smoking room early.

Room Tip: request a non-smoking room, and get the upgrade.

A modern hotel as many are but a bit more space than you usually get. Good food, reasonable price. Taxi from hotel was straightforward and it is walkable to town. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Only downside? Remember to take that complimentary bottle of water they give you out of your hand luggage when you get to airport security! :-)

After arriving in Dublin, we quickly made our way from the airport to The Croke Park Hotel in a matter of minutes (20 to be exact). The hotel has a great location for drivers...just a 15 minute walk from the city center, but not too close to get wrapped up in traffic. The hotel's free parking for guests is also a nice feature.

As for our room...It was 'large' for European standards with a very nice bathroom. Breakfast was excellent. Besides offering all of the Irish standards the hotel did a great job with extra cheeses, meats, pastries, etc...

The property is very modern, yet has a cozy feel. Upon checkout we were offered complementary bottled water to take with us. Again, the extra touches and friendly staff really made this property special. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone going to Dublin.
