“Spotlessly clean, reasonable, 10 mins to airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

I had an early flight out of Dublin and wanted to be out near the airport. I found Kettles on Tripadvisor. It is out in the country, just outside of Swords (the closest town to DUB). The room was spacious, immaculate, and comfortable. There is not really any charm, but I didn't expect or need any at an airport hotel. It was quiet, which is a good thing so near an airport. There are a couple of restaurant options on property, and there were lots of locals eating there, which I always take as a positive sign. My dinner was very good. The hotel and restaurant staff were very friendly and professional.

This is a small clean hotel with a friendly welcome. We were upgraded as we requested a twin room and were given a double so when we went to reception we got upgraded to a suite by the very pleasant and helpful receptionist. The suite was lovely...very clean and spacious with everything in it. The bar was nice. The breakfast the next morning was ok. The staff seemed under pressure and tables needed to be cleaned. Our table was not cleaned from the previous diners and yet our food was served...this was a bit off putting. Plus the fact the staff seemed under pressure to cope. That being said, every one of the staff was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay. The room was given to us as a deal rush deal so we even received a free drink! Would stay here again!

Kettles is in a good location for staying close to the airport but still far enough away that you feel like the vacation has not ended.

I attended a function and booked a room for that night. The front desk could not do enough. The food at the function and restraunt was great, but don't be surprised at the rib dish. It is one big rib. Something right out of the Flinstones!

The internet access is difficult. But once connected it works fine. Clean good size rooms and all staff are friendly. Grounds are pretty as a postcard. Excellent place to stay for early connection to airport.

I would stay if I visit Ireland again!

This was my 2nd time to stay in Kettles Hotel .... Arrived in late from a flight ..... so tired went straight to bed ..... didnt realise the window was open in the room .... woke up freezing to noisy aircraft ..... realised the window was left open to mask the damp smell from the bathroom ...
Apart from that gripe .... staff are lovely , breakfast was huge , set you up for the day ...
I hope they maintain the high standards I experienced on my 1st visit which was a year ago ....

My wife and I stayed on a two night Groupon deal. As my wife is disabled, we were allocated an excellent wheelchair friendly room. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. As we arrived on a Sunday, we had the Sunday carvery. Be warned, the helpings are huge. Half portions can be ordered, and unless you are a big eater, a half portion is enough for any normal person. In general, meals are good plain Irish fare. On the first morning, the breakfast service was very poor, but I understand that a new waitress was on her first day. She did not get the order right. However on the second morning, she made up for the previous day's mistakes. I would be happy to stay in this hotel again.
For anyone flying out from Dublin Airport, the hotel offers parking and a shuttle bus to the airport.

Myself and my husband booked into Kettles hotel as we were attending a family function. Brona booked us in and we felt welcome from the minute we arrived. Our room was an executive suite which was lovely very comfortable. All the staff were professional and friendly. The breakfast was very enjoyable. Even though it was busy it was worth the wait. Highly recommend a visit.
