Very clean and spacious rooms. Good amenities and room service. The reception area staff was terrible. They were not friendly and very rude and uncaring. Not what you would expect from the Irish!

Access to a complete work out facility, pool and sauna.

Would have been nice to have some sort of ventilation in the room other than a small window that faces the highway. Perhaps that isn't the norm for hotels in Ireland, but the room was stuffy and hot without the window open, or overwhelmed by the traffic with the wondow open. Otherwise a nice convenient place to stay close enough to the airport.

Good hotel for the money,friendly staff .Parkibg was a bit tricky though

The location wasn't all great, but seconds from the mall and less than 20 minutes from Dublin. Other than that, staff were awesome, friendly, and extremely helpful. The hotel itself and our room were kept very clean, and very family friendly. It also had a gym, pool, and a array of cultural foods with a bar. If you don't care about location and views, because you're more interested in being out and about to see beautiful Ireland as much as possible, then I highly recommend this hotel. 👍👍👍

Nice hotel close to the airport. We didn’t get to use the pool but it looked really nice. It was hot so I was thankful to have a fan in our room. The darkening shades were very nice as we had an overnight flight and was looking forward to taking a nap. Breakfast was just okay, not really worth the 12 euros. All and all I would stay here again.

The hotel room is nice, the pool is nice. The restaurant food is far from what it could be, we ordered room service one night and both pizzas were the wrong order, we ate because it took so long...in the restaurant itself we were served twice by this young tall male waiter that had an snob attitude, got our order completely wrong, made us wait for over 40 minutes to get our food and the food was disgusting...pale chicken that was supposed to be grilled was boiled and tasted like if it had been boiled with a pair of snickers...my kids refused to eat despite being super hungry...and to top it all, we had no choice but to pay for it! I was travelling with my young children and we couldn't be bothered more by the impolite smokers that would be constantly smoking in front of the doors or vaping in the lobby or common areas. It was so bad that we could not go enjoy breakfast in the restaurant one morning because the restaurant smelled like a pub in the 1990s.

Spacious rooms and great service lovely breakfast

We got this hotel as part of a flight-car-hotel package (for nine nights) and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. Though our room was a FAR walk from the main lobby with--count them--290 steps to the parking lot, the hotel was clean, comfortable, the bed was great, and the staff friendly. The shower overflowed onto the bathroom floor, though, due to a poor setup in the shower door structure, and the wait one night in the hotel restaurant was 40 minutes for our food (and with very mediocre service). Food is great, though. Terrific family atmosphere with lots of kids and families on holiday. Enjoyed talking with other guests and their kids (though noise was an issue most evenings, especially on the weekends). Five-minute walk to a mall and 20 minutes into Dublin city center. Would like to have been closer to city center, but it was also convenient to M50, helpful for our other day trips.

The first time I was here (a year previously), the staff was very courteous about getting us into our room so we would not have to wait in the lobby for five hours as we took an early flight. This time, no such luck. The staff do not appear to talk to one another as one clerk told us that all of the rooms in the entire hotel were booked the previous night and that they have nothing available while another told us that we would not be able to check in until three in the afternoon (even though the room was guaranteed to be ready no later than two). We spent several hours practically napping in the lobby as we were tired from our flight and watched as large groups checked out. Eventually, through much pestering and checking in, we were finally able to get our room and rest. Room service takes a while to answer the phone and will beep shrilly in your ear for several minutes until someone either answers or you try again, and again, and again. I recommend just going to the Liffey Valley Shopping Center up the street for something quick to eat. We didn't make use of other amenities, as we did not want to spend too much time in the hotel when we could be exploring the lovely area. Overall, it is a great value and lovely hotel once you can finally get into your room and unpack/rest.

love the pool and gym perfect for visting the city and all the fun spots

I have to be honest. I love the Clarion, but this visit it seemed as if the hotel was going downhill a bit. The toilet tank leaked. There was no remote control for the TV. The bed and mattresses dipped and the sheets didn't quite fit.. All in all I'm happy with the hotel, I was just a bit put off this time.

The location was great: just outside the city, very near a shopping center, immediately next to a great restaurant. The staff was courteous and helpful. The only downside was that neither my wife nor I slept comfortably. The beds left us sore every morning. Overall, a great stay for the price.

This was a honeymoon for my husband and I. The hotel was just okay. The "bed" for our honeymoon was two twins pushed together, with a fitted sheet over the bed seams. I expected 1 single bed that we would both sleep in, not two seperate beds put together. Also the water temperature was never constant in the shower, it ran exteremely hot and then cold, you constantly had to play with it. Based on the description as well, I expected this hotel to be closer to city center, downtown Dublin, it was not. It was a 20 euro cab ride, or an hour (give or take) bus ride down to city center. The bus system is not the easiest to figure out either. This may be fine for families that are not interested in downtown Dublin, but for us this was not an ideal location for us. The hotel for the most part was clean, but our room could have used a paint touch up, there were scratches all over the walls with paint removed.

The room was very nice and clean. The staff was always friendly and helpful. They helped us get to know the bus lines and local attractions. The Asian restaurant on the premises was really good. The city bus was right outside the door. It cost $2.80 to get into Dublin. The buses ran until about 11 o'clock. The on/off tour bus picked us up at the hotel in the morning. The tour cost was great and we saw most of the sights of Dublin. There was a shopping mall with food court a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. We would absolutely go back again to this hotel.

The staff was great, the room was great. I could not have been happier

The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful! But when they say they have Free Wifi throughout the hotel they only mean the main lobby. The beds were hard as a concrete slab. And in our room it looked as if art work had been ripped off the walls and left paint chips missing. There was next to NO hot water at 0300-0400 in the morning- and when getting up early for tours it was a real problem. Cold showers when it's 30 degrees out are NO FUN. The $ saved here isn't worth the distance from town since the bus fair is 4.80 Euro round trip per person. Next trip I'll stay in town and pay the extra!

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, clean and comfortable room
