I have stayed at the Ardilaun a number of times over past few years, with my wife and three young kids. If you like a very irish old school hotel - lots of carpets and byzantine corridor layouts due to repeated hotel extensions, you've come to the right place. The highlights of the place are definlity the pool, which is roman themed and a big hit with the kids, the relaxing and well laid out lobby, the breakfast, which is excellent, and the helpful staff. The rooms can sometimes not be all you might wish for, depending on the era of the extension you get. On this trip we were given a very large family room, which was great. It did overlook the hotel recyling area, which was not ideal, and room and bathoom were showing their age - freshing those up would go a long way. However, the size made up for these issues. The other thing is the location - about 10 min by car from the centre - you really do need a car to get around when you are staying here. Overall, a good hotel and worth recommending.
