We normally stay at an airport hotel the night before we fly. Sitric was only about 30 minutes of an easy drive, right on the water, absolutely gorgeous view and with a fresh seafood meal included. It was great.
The rooms are all named after lighthouses. Ours was "Rockabill" which I initially thought was just a corruption of "Rockabilly". We sat in the window and looked at the storm tides while sipping some of the fine Greenspot Irish Whiskey we had earlier bought from the Celtic Whiskey trader shop on Dawson St. We walked the sea wall/promenade in a pretty stiff gale.
The dinner was fresh, the service great. The parking was free, the trip to the airport easy and out of most of the Dublin traffic jam. This sure beats any airport hotel.
The views from the restaurant were also grand. What a great spot.
