“Great price,easy access to the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This hotel was perfect, it's a very nice hotel just outside downtown near the stadium. The rate was great we booked online which gave an upgrade to the exec level which had continental breakfast. We used the hop on hop off sightseeing bus to tour dublin so we didn't have to drive in the city and there is a shuttle from the hotel to the start of the bus line or its just a 7 min walk! Customer service was excellent we got into to DUB at 5:25 and were lucky enough to get to check into our room at 7:30am and take a quick nap before starting our day. One note my adaptor did not work in their plugs but it worked everywhere else in Ireland, we just asked at the desk and they gave us one to use during our stay!

Stayed here for two nights on a girls break away. Rooms were beautiful and clean, the food excellent and the service spot on, even down to waiting for a taxi in lobby we were offered a hot chocolate while we waited and a box of chocolates on our last night with the friendliest of staff, would definitely recommend and will be returning soon.

We booked based on reviews, and were not disappointed. From check in to check out, it was very efficient. The desk staff were very, very helpful - booking taxis, morning wake up calls, giving directions, even changed up 100 euro notes when we couldn't get them changed elsewhere. The bedspread was a bit stained, I called and it was changed. One night there was some confusion with the taxi driver as to who booked it. The lady at the front desk actually came out to talk with the driver to get it sorted for us.

We were on the 4th floor, and the continental breakfast was included, lots of choice and delicious.

Did the green bus tour, took the shuttle from outside the hotel (one pick-up time, 9:30). Bought the ticket at the hotel, cost less than buying on the bus.

This had a boutique hotel feel (not like one of the larger impersonal hotels) and was not intimidating the way some better hotels can seem. Also felt secure, you need our key card to go to any floor in the elevator, and when we came back to the hotel a bit late one night, a staff member checked that we were guests (politely though).

Had no trouble with location, I didn't mind walking alone in the daytime and even after my husband and I left a pub and walked back.

Overall the hotel was great, the staff make it excellent, would highly recommend it.

It may be next door to a massive sports stadium, but in Dublin that a big bonus as all the followers of the Gaelic games will tell you. This is a smart hotel hotel with friendly helpful staff and nice relaxed feel. Modern in style comfortable, with a nice ambiaence you soon slip into comfort mode. The food in the sideline bistro is good and the sideline bar is a great place to hang out. I can't wait to go back!

My father and I stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed our stay. I would say it s a 3/5 stars.. rooms are of good size and we had a large bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower. The bar staff is friendly and the food is decent at best. The desserts are great and the wine list is solid. Breakfast gets old after a few days. Concierge Stephen is great. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walking distance so if you don't want to hoof it then be ready for a taxi. I would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to record your valued comments regarding your recent stay at the Croke Park Hotel. Firstly I was delighted to read that our team in both Concierge and Food & Beverage took such good care of you and your father.

I was also most disappointed however to learn that you felt we were only worthy of a three star rating and would gladly welcome the opportunity to discuss these in more detail. I can personally assure you that the constructive feedback you have provided us will definitely assist my team in becoming better at what we do.

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. I would like to reassure yourself and other TripAdvisor reviewers that The Croke Park Hotel has an excellent transport network, with several Dublin bus routes stopping nearby. These bus routes service both Dublin Airport and city centre attractions. There is also the touristic Hop-On Hop-Off bus which has a shuttle service stopping directly outside the hotel. Taxis to or from the world-renowned Temple Bar district should cost no more than €10 each way.

I look forward to hopefully being able to personally welcome you back to the Croke Park Hotel in the future.

Warmest Regards

This is a very nice hotel, well maintained, good service. The location is not perfect but its only a 15 minute walk into O'Connell St. However during our stay we were disappointed by breakfast as it felt there were not enough staff - we waited ages for someone to take our coffee and toast order and in the end I went to find someone. The plates were not very clean either. In addition we had a defective shower and it took three attempts to get it fixed, so two days with barely luke warm water. Lastly beware Gaelic match days when the stadium empties into the hotel after the games - it then becomes extremely difficult to get bar food and drinks.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to complete our online review regarding your visit to The Croke Park Hotel. We most certainly appreciate receiving all feedback, be it positive or negative, thus affording us the opportunity of reviewing and improving the hotel.

As you rightly mention, the hotel does indeed become very busy on match days, this however we feel creates a great atmosphere in the hotel as Croke Park holds a special place in the affections of the Irish people. It is the spiritual home of our native Gaelic games. It’s a place where mighty sporting warriors contest for the most coveted trophies in Irish sport and where legends of our games have made their claims to immortality. And located next to this great sporting shrine, The Croke Park Hotel plays its own unique part in Irish and Dublin life.

I note that there were however, a few points mentioned in the review that you felt were below par, please kindly contact me on the contact details below to discuss further should you so wish. We strive to provide our guests with memorable luxury experiences, but it appears your stay with us was memorable for the wrong reasons. It is my goal to retain you as a satisfied customer and will hope to serve you again in the future..

Kind Regards

Russell
