“Excellent in all ways”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Our rooms were in perfect condition and very comfortable. We loved that there were many buses that stopped right in front of the hotel. We felt like we were in a safe location and treated exceptionally well.

We appreciated that our room was ready and available to us at 10AM (Canadian time 3AM) so we were able to get some rest, before starting our Irish adventure. Then we met the Concierge in the Lobby who told us about the 'Hop on, Hop off' bus tours and the convenience off a shuttle right at the door of the hotel. So, right away we had a City Tour and the following day we enjoyed seeing the different points of interest.
Thank you for making our time in Dublin so memorable!

We visited for a relaxing weekend and that is exactly what we got. A number 16 bus takes you from the airport to within 100m of the hotel (get off at Drumcondra station) with a journey time of about 20 minutes. We did not eat all the time in the hotel but the breakfasts were excellent and the evening meal we had was just as good. Staff are exceedingly friendly and very attentive. We don't like city centre hotels and the location was excellent as it was on a bus route, close to a railway station and within walking distance of the centre. The room and bed were comfortable and there was little noise during the night. Would stay again

Went for a weekend stay in Dublin, to see sights and for the night life! Short walking distance to the centre. Lovely room, public areas, facilities, bar and restaurant and staff! Just avoid if the stadium has any events on and your not attending as heard it can get crazy in and around that area.

I stayed here whilst on business in Dublin. I was very impressed with the hotel. The reception staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The bar area is very nice. Rooms are very nice, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was good and plenty of choice. I would say that if people are looking to be near Temple bar area, this hotel is quite far away. There are buses that run frequently. A taxi should cost no more than €20. Overall a good hotel with excellent service.

Backstory: We were in a very poor decision where we had booked hotel that was like 15 km away from city center. This was a very poor decison because we wanted to go to the Ani-con which was placed in the Croke Park. anyways we drove to Croke Park Hotel by taxi and asked them if they had anything available we were so lucky and fortunate and was able to stay there all the nights. we had a great time explaining our situation and we had a wonderful ani-con considering our poor decisions.

We had a absolutely wonderful time staying at this place mostly thanks to always caring staff members that was really happy to help and do something that feels right.

Our situation started out as a terrible experience in dublin to a really comforting and inviting one thanks to the staff and over all thanks to the nice clean room and big comfortable beds.

The location is located at just about 2 kilometers walk from city center. Food both dinner and breakfast was very enjoyable. We had a absolutely great time. and it was all because of being able to stay at this hotel.

If we go again we know where to book our room and so do you. ;)

Croke Park was a clean, well appointed place to stay. I was a little concerned that the hotel would be in a not so good location but I walked into the city centre by myself a few times and never had a problem. The hop on/ hop off bus did have an occasional pick up from outside the hotel, so if you didn't want to walk this was another opportunity to get into the centre.
The room was clean and a good size, the only problem was the shower door was unstable. We stayed in a club room so had access to the club lounge which was a handy place to relax or meet up with the other couple staying with us.
The bar/restaurant area was good, and the food and cocktail choice well worth the visit. I would certainly recommend to visitors who didn't mind not staying in the thick of things.
