One night stay

We stayed here for one night as we were collecting relatives from the airport early on the Sunday Morning. Parking was limited outside the hotel. When we booked in the girl on the desk was pleasant enough,telling us all about the meal specials. What she neglected to to tell us was that there was 2 underground car parks,which were secure. we had alot of valuable gear in the car, (golf Bags). but were never advised about the secure parking.

Excellant Stay

We only stayed one night and caught a flight home the next day. When we checked in the staff provided us with a map of Dublin and was very helpful in answering questions concerning getting downtown. We went downtown, had a great meal and bought some souvenirs even though it was pouring rain and cold. The room was clean, a good size and had everything we needed. It was a short commute to the airport. They have a shuttle that runs during the day that picked us up when we arrived for no charge. Just ask the information desk at the airport and they will tell you where to meet the shuttle. We then booked it to take us to the airport the next morning but there was a fee. You can also purchase breakfast buffer at a discount when you check in. It was a quiet stay and we were rested for our flight home the next day.

There is a bus stop nearby for a shop commute downtown. We asked the driver to let us know when he had reached our stop on the way back and he was very helpful along with the locals on the commute to downtown.

Very friendly staff, fine rooms

The hotel was pretty average across the board. Nothing to complain about, but not much that excites either. However, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. One morning I needed another 2 euros and 40 eurocents for the bus into the city and the receptionist gave it to me from her own purse. Of course, I paid her back later, but she was just giving it to me. It was a humungous help.

most uncomfortable mattresses ever

Mattresses are lumpy and you can feel the springs coming through the mattress (king). We were offered a room upgrade, but were told all the king mattresses would be the same, due to 2 box springs used to support it. We checked out the room upgrade, and ,seeing and feeling that mattress, we declined. Hotel food was pretty bad and service wasn't great (slow, as is most of Ireland, however). This hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so don't expect any other choices of restaurants nearby, within wAlking distance. Only McDonald's and a coffee shop are walkable.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The main city of Dublin is 15 minutes or so drive away, so if you want convenience, this hotel is not it. Also, there are no other decent restaurants to walk to, so be prepared to have bad hotel food, or go food shopping and spring for a kitchenette.

Good lacation near airport

We paid for the shuttle bus to the airport, but it was running late, so the receptionist ordered us a taxi and we didn't need to pay for it, the hotel did. It was a nice surprise! Izabella Bobrowska
