“Best hotel of our tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2010

What a treat it was to stay in the hotel at the end of our tour of Ireland! Fast and efficient check-in and amazing staff! Front desk reception not only answered questions but cheerfully called a taxi for us as well as give us a map and show us exactly where we were and how to find things. Wonderful rooms equipped with frig, safe, ironing board, hair dryer and even one 'American' outlet plug over by the large desk. Comfy beds and great breakfast in the morning.

We stayed here in June and found the Hilton to be an ideal base from which to explore Dublin. It's 2 mins west of Heuston Station where you can get all the Luas and bus connections you need. Across the road is Kilmainham Gaol which is well worth a tour. But more importantly the Hilton is clean, warm, modern and the staff are very friendly.

There's parking under the hotel but the signs are confusing - I turned left at the bottom of the ramp instead of right, and ended up in 'residents' parking (for the apartments attached to the Hilton)! Also, the parking ticket machine at the exit was broken, but pushing the 'help' button caused the barrier to go up so we could escape!

We booked through alpharooms.com late on a Friday to stay on a Saturday, so when we checked in, there was a long delay while the porter called alpharooms to sort something out - however the hotel assured us that they had a room for us, and they did. The room was bright, warm and clean with big windows overlooking the street. Those windows couldn't be opened, but the air-conditioning kept us cool on a humid day.

My better half used the pool and found it fine if a little small. Late Saturday night we went into the bar for a drink and the waitress was good enough to get us a sandwich even though they had stopped serving food. Breakfast in the morning was served 'til 11 and there was plenty of everything.

I'd heartily recommend the Hilton - the location, standard and service couldn't be faulted. We'll be back.

We stayed at the Kilmainham Hilton on our first night in Ireland. After arriving in Ireland on an over night flight we drove straight to this hotel and parked in their garage. Miraculously, our 2 rooms were ready at 11 am, so we were able to get our selves unpacked and ready for our one day in Dublin. Rooms were very modern and comfortable with every amenity. Wireless connection, hair dryers, soaps, shampoos, extra pillows, etc. Any noise from the road outside was blocked by thick windows. Front desk clerks were helpful with our many questions! This hotel was located across the street from the historic Kilmainham Goal (Jail). We walked over to it and purchased a family "Heritage Card" which allowed us into all historical attractions in Ireland maintained by the Office of Public Works for 55 Euro--best deal of the 10 days! There are also stops for both of the "hop off/Hop on" tour busses operated in Dublin located across the street from this hotel. We used the bus to avoid driving in Dublin. Breakfast was good and extensive, but also expensive--about 19 Euro per person. You can get a good room rate that includes the breakfast, but one of our rooms was secured with Hilton points, so we had to buy the breakfast buffet. I would recommend this hotel highly to anyone who didn't mind staying in the outlying areas of Dublin!

Parked in the hotel car park for €10. When checking in was offered free internet access in my room. Bedroom was bright, clean, modern and relatively spacious. Ensuite was clean and modern. Good power from the shower. Water built up around you while you showered though. Couldn't work the stopper in the sink. OK choice of TV channels. Was woken at 8am by the fire alarm - (when i asked at reception about it, it was attributed to some burning toast). Breakfast (the food) was extremely good - lots of choice and well laid out with little signs telling you what everything was. "Real" orange juice - a big plus for me. Was enjoying my second glass of it to finish off my breakfast when there was about a minute of loud knocking noises followed by the ceiling opening up and water absolutely GUSHING with force from the hole in the ceiling. Everyone got up and ran from the room, not knowing if the whole ceiling was about to collapse or if the water was boiling hot or not. (luckily I had finished my wonderful breakfast just in time! When I asked at reception about it when checking out 10 minutes later I was told that a pipe had burst and that "it happens". All, in all, it could have been worse I guess ,i could have been sitting directly under the torrent of water, it could have been scalding hot, or I might have had to leave the hotel hungry.

The rooms are very clean, the staff is wonderful, location is very good and the neighborhood is great. Lots of things to see and do very close. Get a Dublin Pass and you are good to go. This costs a little less than staying down town.

We visited Ireland in April and stayed at this hotel upon our arrival and one night at the end of our week-long stay. The staff was so incredibly helpful and kind. We were able to check in considerably early which was a relief after having been on airplanes for 12 hours prior. The neighborhood is quiet and on the outskirts of the city centre; however the hotel staff helped us to find easy bus and rail routes into the city centre. The hydrotherapy pools on the lower level of the hotel were a nice amenity. The rooms were plenty spacious and newly decorated. Bathroom was huge - providing a separate shower and tub.

and no cold water for shower only blazing hot..
We stayed here for a vacation before leaving for the airport , came to find out we had no cold water to temper the shower, so had to pack up our things and head 4 flights up via the stair well in our pjs to go to an empty room to take a shower, which also had no air conditioning or air circulation of any kind.
In our room no a/c, man came up to fix, couldn't, then brought us 2 circulating fans to set up.
ridiculous. if it had been 0600 we got up to get ready to fly I would have been extremely p.o.'d.
