Dublin break

We enjoyed our stay at the best western skylon hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Little bit far out for Dublin city centre but the bus stop right outside the hotel and only took about 10-15 mins on the bus depending on traffic. Food good also and not badly priced.

Weekend break

This trip was booked as a surprise for my husbands birthday. We arrived quite early on the Friday morning our room was not ready but the reception staff got us booked in and kept our luggage until we returned nothing was a problem. We had a great three day break , hotel was lovely staff very friendly our room was very comfortable. The food was good there is a pub across the road which was very lively with live bands enjoyed our night there also. Overall good just bit too far out if your wanting to be nearer Dublin city centre .

Good

My overall stay was good, there were roadworks outside the hotel that were outside of their control. The room was comfortable and for the most part clean, except for quite a large splattering of coke/tea on the wall which I moved the table and chairs so as the cleaners couldn't miss however over my three night stay it wasn't. I had meant to highlight on checkout however as quite busy I forgot. Other than that my stay was quite good, and would probably return.

great comfortable central location

Staff were very accommodating...from the front desk, help w luggage, and the pub making sandwiches for us when we got back from a tour of eastern Ireland & serving hours were officially over! We would definitely stay again if we ever get back to Ireland.

short break

The hotel was fair and the staff were good. Not too far from the main town area and not too far from the airport. Just make sure you learn the busses as taxis can be expensive! The WiFi code we were given didn't work - but having tried the code and being un successful we didn't go ask for assistance or another code so this could have been resolved if we really wanted.
