First of all I would just like to thank Brian at Reception for all his help. Myself and my friend had never been to Dublin before so were unsure of where to go but Brian was really helpful and talked us through all the best places to go and even outlined it all out on a map for us. Furthermore, I would also like to praise all the staff at the Hotel Dublin Kilmainham, I found them all extremely helpful and polite.
The actual hotel is wonderful - very modern and clean! The restaurant does a nice range of food and all at reasonable prices. They even do room service, which is available 24 hours a day, which was really helpful when you don't arrive till 11:00pm and are starving! We were really lucky with weather over the weekend and were able to sit out on the terrace at the restaurant, which was really nice.
We also had breakfast included with our room and it was an excellent spread. They had all your usual bacon, sausage, eggs and some local foods too. Then pastries, cereal, fruit, yoghurts etc. The breakfast is definitely worth the money in my opinion.
We had a standard twin room which was suprisingly spacious. The bathroom was really quite large and was immaculately clean. The room also had a TV which had all the standard channels. A safe was located in the room at no extra cost and air conditioning which came in handy. We were only there for two nights but the maids came up to clean our room.
I really couldn't fault the hotel and would highly recommend it. I plan on returning to Dublin next year and would definitely stay at the Hotel Dublin Kilmainham again . It is relatively close to Dublin town centre - a short taxi ride away and we walked to Phoenix Park both days and it took just under 30 minutes. The airport again isn't that far away from the hotel - roughly a 25/30 minute taxi ride and cost just over 25 euros which wasn't bad. The hotel even organised our taxi on the morning we left to take us to the airport.
Faultless hotel - excellent service!
