“A great Dublin Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

I have stayed in the Croke Park twice and loved the service and the location. The hotel staff is welcoming and eager to make your stay pleasant. Everyone at the hotel offered advice on how to get around in Dublin and when I lost my IPhone charger I was given one to use for my entire stay. Great people. My husband and I loved the ease of walking to all of Dublin from The Croke Park. We enjoyed the ease of walking to the sights so that we really got to know the city. We never encountered any problems even walking back to the hotel late at night from the pubs. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and the food in the restaurant was excellent. We will definitely return to the Croke Park Hotel on our next trip to Dublin.

The service in this hotel is what makes it stand out. From the welcome at the reception desk to the charming staff in the dining room and the cheerful bar staff every member of staff makes a huge effort and it really pays off and distinguishes this from other similarly priced hotels in Dublin. Location is fantastic right beside Croke Park, close to the city centre and very convenient place to stay for the Mater Hospital. Haven't had breakfast as had to leave very early but dinner was really good.
Rooms are quiet and very spacious and comfortable. There is a real feel good factor to this hotel and it is well worth a visit. An added bonus is the great value. A better hotel than many others charging twice the price.

Stayed January 2013, traveled with family

When I arrived at the reception at 11am, I was welcomed by the receptionist the ever smiling Emer, she is wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble for her.
I also met Sarah who deals with reservations, and she is fantastic, telling me to personally ask for her, when I come back (with my wife), and she will sort a great rate/offer for our stay
I was invited to the executive lounge while she sorted my room, 10 minutes later, she brought my suit case and room key for 414.
There is an upgrade you must not miss, for a small extra cost, you get upgraded to an executive room. and full use of the executive lounge. It is on the fourth floor, continental breakfast food, available all day, coffee, tea, orange, milk etc, FOC.
They bring you a hot pillow and chocolates and the bed room is fantastic, slippers and dressing gowns in the room if that is your thing.
The staff are ALL fantastic, and really helpful, and the hotel food is outstanding quality
The is no charge for WIFI connection, and the speed of the internet is excellent.
It is next door to the Croke Park Stadium
The cost of a taxi into town, is 8 euros, and you must visit the Old Jameson distillery, great value
At the Airport there is the air-coach, which stops near the hotel, ( 8 minute walk) for 10 euros return, if you do not want a taxi ( expensive) from the airport.
IF you ever go to Dublin, please consider this fantastic special hotel.

Room Tip: ask for the executive lounge upgrade

I booked a three- day stay at The Croke Park Hotel Dublin to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday through Secret Escapes and it did not disappoint!

Our first day did not start well. We were ripped off by the airport taxi on our journey to the hotel. We reported this to the staff at the desk who offered us good advice about how to avoid this in the future - Be aware that it should not cost you 28 Euro to travel to the hotel from the airport. 18 Euro is a more realistic price!

We arrived well before our check in time of 2pm. In fact it was 10.30am but this did not present a problem and the very helpful and friendly staff at reception provided us with entry to our fabulous Deluxe room ( with the most comfortsble bed ever!) which was located on floor 4, This also gave us access to the Executive Lounge where complimentary refreshments were on hand in addition to newspapers, television and radio - all in a very relaxing and comfortable environment. We were amazed at the level of luxury available to us for the very reasonable price of the stay.

This hotel is truly difficult to fault, The staff are courteous and polite at all times. Nothing is too much bother for them, Breakfast is excellent, although some staff can be a little slow at clearing tables sometimes!

The location however, does present a problem or two. I would not recommend that you attempt walking back from town in the dark. It is only around a 15 minute walk but some points of the journey can be peppered with very scary and threatening- looking individuals ! Take the taxi back for your own safety and peace of mind.

On balance, I would have no hesitation in coming back to The Croke Park Hotel. It is simply one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff are delightful, the service is excellent and the hotel is clean and beautifully presented - even if the location is less than ideal.

Get yourself down there. It is a proper little jewel and the perfect base to enjoy the delights of Dublin's fair city!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th Floor had the extra delight of the use of the Executive Lounge

Croke Park is a modern hotel wiht first rate facilities. The staff are friendly and efficient. I thought that it provided exceptionally good value, particularly since a really excellent breakfast was included in the price. (Most hotels in Dublin charge extra for breakfast.) I liked the location - although it is some distance from the city centre, it only takes about 10 minutes to walk to O'Connell Street in the heart of Dublin.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Croke Park Hotel. We always strive to exceed our guest’s expectations and ensure they have a truly enjoyable and relaxing stay. I am pleased to see that you experienced all of these and enjoyed your stay with us.

I was delighted to learn that you found our location suitable as The Croke Park Hotel is located directly across the road from Croke Park Stadium which is the GAA sports’ Mecca. The Croke Park Hotel is located just one mile from Dublin City Centre and a walk or short ride away from Dublin’s Museums, Galleries, Theatres and music venues. Located on the North side of the city allows for quick, easy access to Dublin Airport and is only approximately five miles from the airport.

The hotel is close enough to allow easy access to Dublin City Centre and all of its attractions but also far enough away to guarantee a perfect, quiet nights’ sleep away from the city revellers.

Again, I greatly appreciate your feedback, as it will assist my team in becoming better at what we do. It is my desire to retain you as a satisfied customer and I look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again in the future. Please contact me personally before your next visit to the Croke Park Hotel as I would be delighted to personally extend some of our renowned hospitality.

Kind Regards

We've stayed at this hotel for New Years for 2 years running and if we were going back to Dublin we would stay here again.

Location - Little bit out the way, it's a 20 minute walk to town centre. There is a Green Bus that runs directly from the hotel which you can use to get around all the major tourists sites in Dublin. Taxi's from the airport to here are roughly €20 and to town was €10.

Food - Breakfast is very good. Everything you could want whether it's a full English breakfast or continental (including hams etc). Very good service, have as much as you want. We ate dinner here once, prices are similar to everywhere else in Dublin. It was a good meal but we recommend trying authentic Irish restaurants.

Rooms - Very spacious, well kept. Maid service was very good and prompt. You get free tea and coffee + biscuits every day. There is also a safe in the room, free of charge. Free Wi-Fi in the room as well.

Staff - Very friendly staff, always helpful, no complaints. The staff go the extra mile and are happy to book anything you want. Example, on departure, they offer you a complimentary bottle of water.

Hotel - Nicely kept hotel. We were happy with both rooms we stayed in. The hotel lounge is a very good place to chill. The gym is available to use for guests, which is usually very quiet, and includes all standard equipment, even a fruit bowl + towels!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. You can tell by the hotel map they're much bigger.
