“Perfect Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2005

This is an old hotel, but the views, particularly the one from Room 222, more than make up for it. We stayed here for four nights in May, 2005 and our room had a huge bay window area that looked out on the pier, the ferry terminal and the Bay of Dublin. One could sit up in bed and look out at the sea. The Carlisle Bar attached to the hotel was wonderful; the food was delicious and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. Dun Laoghaire is 7 miles south of Dublin and the DART station to get into Dublin was only a short walk from the hotel. The downside of this hotel was that because it is old, the walls were very thin and you could hear your neighbors very clearly. And, this was probably the most uncomfortable bed we encountered in Ireland, but, as I said the view made up for every negative.

The Kingston Hotel In Dun Laoghaire is a well kept secret. Just 15 minutes from Dublin City Centre by the excellent Dart service it is an oasis of calm.
The rooms are brightly decorated and well furnished and some rooms have breathtaking views over the bay. The best part for us however was the excellent beer garden looking out to sea, with friendly waitress service so you did not even have to get up and go to the bar for a well earned pint of the black stuff. Also worth mentioning is the excellent local entertainment in the hotels Carlisle Bar which had us singing well into the night (Or maybe that was the beer!!). Dun Laoghaire itself has excellent shopping and a variety of restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance of the hotel, but if you fancy a livelier night out the Dart station is a 2 minite walk from the front door of the hotel and the Dart will take you right into the hustle and bustle of Dublin City centre.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Situated on the seafront in Dun Laoghaire, Haddington House has panoramic views of Dublin Bay. Originally four Victorian townhouses the hotel began its life as Haddington House, a finishing school for girls, before being converted into a hotel in the 1950s. We are continuing to develop the hotel property but in keeping with the unique heritage of the building. Our fifty en suite bedrooms have flat screen multi-channel TV's, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machines, digital radios, hair dryers and filtered still and sparkling water. Our newer 'Classic' and 'Deluxe' rooms also come with an in-room safe, a mini fridge stocked with fresh milk, as well as a complimentary Irish Times. Most of the rooms in these categories also have spectacular sea views. Oliveto, the award-winning restaurant with views of the sea, serves Italian-inspired fare and is extremely popular so booking is highly recommended. There's also two unique events spaces: The Library Bar and Oak Room, a lobby bar and a buzzy garden overlooking the sea complete with a Hut Bar. The location is hard to beat with Dun Laoghaire DART station just a 5-minute walk away which provides regular rail connections to Dublin's city centre. The Aviva Stadium and the RDS can be reached after a 10-minute DART rail journey. If you're staying in the area, we have partnered up with a number of local businesses so guests can enjoy discounts on activities. The beautiful village of Dalkey is a short trip down the coast and is great for an afternoon's ramble. Directly opposite us is the historic east pier which was built especially for the arrival of Queen Victoria in 1900. Around the corner is the National Maritime Museum and the James Joyce Tower made famous by Ulysses is just a 5-minute walk away. If you fancy a dip, we'll supply you with towels for a visit to the well-known swimming spot, the 40 foot (beware of the seals!) We look forward to welcoming you to Haddington House. ... more   less
