We stayed at the Croke Park Hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip to Ireland and then again for the last night before flying home. If a comfortable bed is of great importance to you, this is your hotel! The staff is helpful, friendly and respectful, the rooms are comfortable in general with soft but supportive mattresses. A very nice shower too! Food in the bar was very good, prices were decent and the atmosphere was comfortable. Service was slow in general but that is the only real criticism. Management showed genuine concern about a mistake that was made in our booking and did their very best to make it up to us. We opted for the "Best of Dublin" package which included full breakfast, tickets to the Hop On Hop Off Bus and a free drink in the bar. It was worth it. The hotel also offers free parking. The location has it's ups and downs. It is a good distance from City Center so if you are planning to walk, it's a long hike (especially if you are planning to then spend the day walking around the city). The Hop On- Hop Off Bus (the GREEN ONE!) will pick you up at the hotel if you don't want to walk and it's a good deal. On the plus side- the location puts you 15 minutes or so from the airport for an easy commute. Due to being outside City Center, you don't have the traffic coming and going that you do when staying downtown and it's quieter. We whole-heartedly recommend this hotel- i wouldn't even consider staying somewhere else when in Dublin!
