“Absolutely Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

My partner & I stayed at the Courtyard Hotel with our two friends. We had a fantastic three days and enjoyed every minute. The reception staff - especially Owen were really helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We had a four course meal included in our package. My friends and I had the duck which was very tender and tasty and my partner had the lamb which he said was delicious. The waiters were so helpful too, they made the whole meal a very special occasion. The breakfast selection was amazing we all opted for the Full Irish - delicious. The bars are great too with a lovely atmosphere and great bar food.
Our room was huge with a king size bed and a single bed. It was sumptuously decorated with beautiful soft furnishings.
The hotel is very convenient for Dublin as the bus ride only takes 20 mins.
I would highly recommend The Courtyard Hotel and can't wait to visit again later in the year.

Room Tip: Both our room and our friends room were great and the bathrooms were lovely too - great shower press...

Returned to this hotel after having stayed a night before. The atmosphere is lovely- staff at reception very welcoming as were all staff! Had a delicious four course meal in the restaurant, there was four of us and all four plates went back clean, food was really exceptional, would return for the food alone. The piano bar for residents was open as it was Good Friday an the usual bar closed but there was a nice bunch of people in and they continued to serve us in the lobby when the bar shut! The rooms are nice and very clean. There is a walk by the river bedside the hotel which is lovely! Can imagine the hotel being lovely on a summers day!! Definitely will return and recommend to friends!! Thanks courtyard for another great stay!!

Before arriving at hotel I phoned and stated it was my husband's birthday. I spoke with Shona who said she would upgrade us to a riverview room. We stayed here on Saturday night last as a birthday treat for my husband. On arriiving at our bedroom we were greated by balloons and a written birthday card for my husband ! Our room had a garden view and was very spacious. We had something to eat in the courtyard which was very tasty and reasonably priced. We went to the piona bar that evening where a group were playing lovely middle of the road music. Arthur's bar had a d.j. then a live group. It was very busy and lively. The breakfast room had a lovely garden view. There was alot of choice for breakfast and even a menu ! On checking out Shona was on duty and asked my husband if he had a nice birthday !! Very impressive. We couldn't fault this hotel and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Had a riverview room which was very spacious.

I stayed here for 5 nights for business. When I arrived I was welcomed by the front desk staff. They were very friendly and gave a lot of information about things to do in the area and how to get the Dublin. My surname is very Irish, but in the US it is normally mis-spelled. It was great for once when they knew my name started with a K instead of a C!! The roomwas a great size as well as the restroom. It was great to be in a place where Guinness began. Arthur's pub was great. The breakfast at the River Grille was decent. The ground around the hotel were nice along the river. Leixlip itself is small, but Davinci's Italian was great. The bus for Dublin (route 66) comes by at least every 30 minutes with a stop just a couple of minutes from the hotel. The train was a bit further, about a 15 minute walk with trains about every hour, sometimes less. To Intel it is about a 25 minute walk if needed. I would consider staying here again. Especially for thier hospitality!!

Room Tip: A room facing the river...

Stayed at the Courtyard while attending a function in a nearby hotel and we were extremely happy with our stay. We had requested a quiet room as we were not planning on staying late at our function and we were allocated just what we had requested. The room itself was absolutely spotless (top marks to the accommodation staff). Breakfast was really good and it was a lovely change to have a cooked breakfast cooked to order rather than the usual breakfast that is lukewarm from a bain maire with lids left open by other guests. All staff were genuine and friendly.Well done Courtyard we will definitely be back....

As you drive through Leixlip, a sleepy little village you don't know what to expect of the hotel you have booked into...... You will be very pleasantly surprised. From entering the hotel forecourt there is a warm feeling about the place. The reception area is welcoming with a lovely fire flanked by comfy arm chairs. Check in is quick & easy by extremely pleasant staff. Kris was exceptionally nice to deal with, also Owen who dealt with us last time. The rooms are spotlessly clean & spacious. We had the evening meal which was absolutely delicious as was the breakfast. All in all I can't find fault at all with the place. The staff are a credit to the owners, from management downwards. Do not hesitate to book. It's a fantastic hotel that you don't need to go out of during your stay, as it has everything you need for a short break. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: You can ask for a room with a river view.

Enjoyed a delightful break at this historical and charming hotel. Our room was spacious, warm and spotlessly clean with beautiful views onto the garden. Owen, Kevin and Laura were most warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our visit pleasant and enjoyable. The food was plentiful and excellent. I was particularly delighted to see a separate bin for recycling provided in our bedroom. I will be more a than happy to recommend this hotel to my family and friends.
