Travelodge Dublin Airport South Hotel
Ranked #110 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed April 23, 2013

What you save on the room rate, you might more than pay in taxis to get there and back to the airport.
Also negative 1. Arrived at 10pm....no food or bar available.
No nearby restaurants (take away next door), and the nearest (unpleasant) pub (across the busy main road) is like something out of the Wild West.
2. Breakfast. Wanted a latte coffee in the restaurant area, no latte available....'it will take about 5 minutes'. So tried the coffee machine at reception.....er, 'we don't habe any cups.

I had found an online deal at a hotel on the airport site (walkable from the terminal).
It was dearer, but in retrospect I should have taken it.

Dear LobbyLudd,

Many thanks for your feedback in relation to your stay with us. My apologies for the inconvenience you incurred as a result of the bar been closed and the experiences you had with our delivery systems in our restaurant. We are currently carrying out some refurbishment in our bar area over the last few days to improve our product and enhance our guest's experience during their stay. I have addressed our service standards with my team here at the hotel and taken steps to ensure a repeat of this does not occur again.

I trust that your perception of the hotel has not been diminished and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,

George O'Gara
General Manager

A few min. drive from Airport (taxi 14 €), spacious and very tidy rooms, large quality beds (kingsize), coffee/tea facilities, extremely helpful and friendly staff who individually care for their guests. Although not located in the best part of town, it is an excellent budget hotel which is recommendable for both travellers who can easily get to the city centre of Dublin (public transport available) as well as to/from Dublin Airport for one overnight stay.

Good value for money if one needs to overnight in Dublin to fly out the next day.

However difficult to reach by bus from the airport without planning. Best to take a taxi.

Easy to reach the city centre from here with several bus lines running directly.

I stayed in this hotel before and I wasn't a fan but as it was the "best value" near Dublin airport I gave it another chance. We pulled in by Ikea in Ballymun & rang the hotel for directions & a girl answered saying she was new and didnt know how to get there from there. So we pulled into McDonalds to be told it was 2 sets of traffic lights away, how she didn't know where IKEA was is beyond me. Parked in the unsecured carpark and there was a very drunk man crying on the footpath above having a huge row with a woman that was echoing all over the place. Went into the reception to hear a party in the bar with music blaring. We tried to check in but she just said can we wait 10 mins while she closes one till. So we sat in reception whilst she added stuff up and wrote down numbers and waited until eventually when she called us back up we asked for a room away from the party. As we walked down the hallway to our room, the music downstairs got louder & louder with each step & we felt we were right above it. The room itself was fine (except for the fur & mould in both the cups due to stale mild & teabags left there for a long time) but definitely will never stay in this hotel again and wouldnt recommend it to anybody.

We stayed here on 15th march.
Have to say excellent service once they finally found us the room. Exceptionally clean and well appointed having a secure underground car park was also a very welcome bonus.
Beds had mattress and pillow protectors on .. Excellent .
Would Definately recommend and stay here again.
