Regency Hotel Dublin.

Great location, easy commute to the city centre (10 mins on a bus) and airport (20 mins on a bus). Great value for money, will definitely use again.

Good Location

It was a very good location located right in between both the city centre and airport. Both were just a short 10-15 minute drive away. I was definitely put off by the staff in the restaurant, though. We arrived fairly late to check in and headed directly down to the restaurant to order some food as it had been a long day and it took them nearly 45 minutes to even notice us. This was after we had attempted to speak with 2 waitresses on 2 occasions. The room was decent, definitely a lot older than I was expecting and the bedding was a little questionable cigarette burns in the comforter, hair in the bed when we arrived, etc. The bathroom was incredibly nice compared to the room, so that was a plus! Overall, it was a fairly good experience. For the price during the St. Patrick's Day weekend, you couldn't beat it! The condition of the room was a little bit disappointing but it's not too bothersome if you don't plan on being there much.

ideal for airport

Have stayed here many times as I like the location of Regency Hotel ideally situated between city centre and Dublin Airport..If you can get a room in new part of hotel much more comfortable..the leisure center is great to unwind and free for guests. The hotel food is not good better off trying places nearby.Overall enjoyable stay

Weekend stay

From begining to end all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful in everyway, from advising buses, organising taxis and serving drinks and meals. Hotel was very warm and our room had been recently refurbished to a very high quality.

Dated but functional

We only stayed here for one night so our experience is limited. We chose it simply for its price, it was the cheapest hotel available for the night at short notice. The room was clean if very dated. The bathroom was very clean which is often unusual in budget older hotels. The hotel was busy during the early evening with various functions being held there. The lounge bar was busy with some live music later that night. We had the breakfast in the morning though it was not included in the price, it was nice & generous if standard hotel buffet. So together with the paid parking and the added breakfast it is not the best value. And due to the distance from the city the price of transport has to be factored in. All these extras add another €48 to the cost per night!

Layover Relief

If you have a layover it's a great space. The location and view is wonderful. The room is perfectly nice and you get what you pay for. Wish the bed was not so stiff but that's honestly my only complaint. Great place.

Good value. Good location

We just stayed here for one night and we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and the great view of the city. There was secure parking too which was 8 euros for 24 hrs. There was a buffet breakfast included in our rate and it was plentiful and fresh. Overall a good hotel. Would stay there again.

Excellent starting point for red-eye flights from Dublin airport

The staff could not have been more helpful. There was no desk in my room and sitting at a little coffee table to work was a little uncomfortable but wifi access was easy and free. Residents have to pay €8 for carparking so maybe a reduction to €5 would be good.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

A taxi to the airport costs €15 each way so it's best not to leave your car at the hotel if you're going on a day return business trip - just drive to one of the longterm carparks - 5 mins away at 5.30am with no traffic. and pay circa €9 a day.
