I had been trying to get a flight out of Dublin last December after many of my flights being canceled due to snow and weather. After my plane had been delayed I wanted to get away from the city center and stay somewhere quite and near the airport and this place was recommended to me. It is set in a beautiful location right next to the water and within walking distance of Portmarnock and a short cab or bus ride to the city center. Upon arrival I went to the check in desk and they told me it was going to be 49 Euros a night, and in Dublin 49 Euros usually doesn't go very far so I wasn't expecting much, I was wrong. I walked up to my room and it was huge and had a very comfortable queen sized bed. The hotel also has an attached bar with very friendly locals I even got invited to a families Christmas party in the hotel bar after they heard I had been stuck in Dublin for a few nights but I ended up making it out the next day. The hotel also has an attached night club, I was by myself and I usually wouldn't go to a night club alone but I thought I would stay for just a beer or two. The club was filled with locals and just like every other person I met in Dublin were very friendly and eager to make conversation with me. If I ever make it to Dublin again which I plan to I will be staying here again the staff was very helpful and attentive and I really liked the location.
