Airport transit

Located about 10 minutes from the airport, it is an inexpensive place to stay while waiting for a flight departure. The major drawback was the hotel shuttle which we waited for at the airport for about 30 minutes. We finally gave up and took a taxi to the hotel to discover the next morning that you have to pay for the shuttle on the way back to the airport. It was not expensive, but seemed a little cheap simply not to include it in the price of the room. Not serious but a little unpleasant nonetheless.

Very satisfactory transit stop

I used this hotel after returning my rental car to overnight before my departure from Ireland the next day. The staff were helpful in various ways, the meals were very good, internet connection was fine, and the room was well-appointed and comfortable.

Great Bus stop location

Fine hotel with transportation to and from airport and car rental. Nice bus stop outside for easy access to Dublin. Everything was nice including restaurant and the reception desk.

Go elsewhere!

The non-smoking room smelled of cigarette smoke due to the ventilation system. They switched us to a new room but when we returned from dinner in the mediocre hotel restaurant it too smelled of smoke. There was no air conditioning so we had to leave the window open and the cross walk and traffic were loud during the night. We didn't initially see the hotel and had to turn around twice on nearby streets where vandalized cars were parked.

needs improvement & attention to details

assigned a smoking room even thought non-smoking requested. took some arm twisting to get this changed.. 2Euro charge/person for airport shuttle even though listed as FREE SHUTTLE to airport.. bathroom drain was plugged, water did not get hot, shower mat was dirty/moldy. doubt I would return when there are other good hotels in the area.

clean, comfortable

great place to end our 10 day holiday. free shuttle service to and from hotel/airport was the selling point. picked up a bus close by to go to city - 1.80/pp. can't beat that! reception ladies were very pleasant and helpful. only thing - supposed to have a king bed in room - was a full size - with something broken in middle of mattress - had to turn it ourselves to sleep on it.

" Not as depicted in the description "

Based on this hotel's description, I expected it to be new and fresh, since it ostensibly had opened in 2006. It definitely was not! Apparently Days Hotel had merely been acquired from a different company in 2006, as it was tired and old. The staff was kind and helpful, and the location close to the airport with a free shuttle was very convenient. It was also convenient to the bus line.
