This hotel is located in a nice suburb of Dublin at a golf course. That is also the reason for most guests to stay here.
I had business at the airport and like to play golf. So, for me a good combination.
The hotel is good. Rooms are convenient and spacious, although mine, 210, had a very noisy fan in the bathroom, which you could hear throughout the room. Very comfortable beds. Nice view towards the sea.
Food in the bar and restaurant is of 'island quality'; the sole is tasteless and the cheesecake is purple...
Breakfast is very good with a wide variety of choice. Sometimes the natural yogurt may run out.
Restaurant staff is friendly. Bar staff is not as friendly as you would encounter in any other Irish pub. Reception staff never bothered to say hello when you passed by.
I expected a lot from the links golf course, but was disappointed. Fairways are not maintained well, and I missed the real links experience.
Tip: halfway hole 1 make sure to check the graveyard of the Jameson family.
