We had room 401 . Very small bed . Nice view .the bed is a thing i fell out one night am 1 meter 88. There is a coffee machine free wifi - good shower . Small seating for 2 . Staff is very friendly. We had several times dinner in the restaurant- where they never caught the catch of the day:-). Breakfast is expensive and there is no buffet . Breakfast is of high quality but small annoying things as no fresh orange juice ... The location of the hotel is just very good - 20 min by train to dublin centre . All major sites easy reachable by car . The hotel was just painted grey that week - it suits the hotel . It is a good hotel - they should do something about these tiny beds ........

We generally liked this hotel. The staff was always very friendly. The location was good and walking distance to the train station. Things we didn't like: there is a pub down stairs that stays open very late in the evening. You can hear the club music all through the room. One night we were kept awake until 2:00AM because of the noise. It just so happened that on this same night, the boiler went out so we had no heat and no hot water to take a shower. I would possibly consider staying here again in the future if I could get a room away from the pub.

Booked for 6.30 on a Friday evening We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. The ambience, location and views are spectacular. The starters were excellent- deep fried squid and fish croquettes . These were followed by Lamb ragu and Tagliolini with monkfish and a delicious carafe of Italian wine. Thanks to Chloe and our super waiter Alain All in all - a great night out.

I've been staying whilst working nearby and I do like small hotels so this is great. However, I have asked to be moved rooms a couple of times; the first room I had looked lovely but the window looked onto the fans from the restaurant and didn't get turned off until 11 pm. The noise was deafening and kept me awake. Another time I stayed in a room which definitely needed updating. The bathroom was tired - but I didn't complain. However, it rained heavily and there was a leak from a bay window. It was constant and was like 'water torture' so I moved at 11.45 in my pyjamas to another room. This room (412) I have stayed in a couple of times, it's OK, but the bathroom is tired, the skirting boards are very dusty and back of the door to the bathroom isn't as clean as it could be. However, I will be staying again, but my advice would be to ask to stay in their better rooms and move if you are not happy. On the cleaning issue, the public areas are spotless, I just think the rooms need a jolly good deep clean and thorough vacuuming. On the very good side, the sheets are lovely on the bed, good quality and a dream to sleep in and the beds are good too.

The team at Haddington house made my stay very welcoming. Room was recently refurbished and nicely decorated. I've stayed here before in the winter, this time I could enjoy the lovely summer terrace with stunning views.

What a fabulous setting, with the garden to the front overlooking the seafront and the pier. The hotel is beautifully refurbished, the rooms spotless and very comfortable. They really go the extra mile in terms of quality and service. The only tiny disappointment was the breakfast orange juice. Freshly squeezed would be more appropriate to the class and tone of the hotel. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Attending a friends wedding here in Haddington House and I have to say, the BEST food I have ever been served at a wedding. The service is excellent, the staff are incredible efficient and helpful. Everything about this event has been superb.

This was a terrible mistake. The Hotel caters for weddings and corporate events in a garden just in front of the premises and the noise coming from there is almost deafening and can be heard in rooms that have a sea view. On our second night the “party” went until 2.40 am with revellers creating a noise that made it impossible to rest let alone sleep. We left to catch our ferry early in the morning exhausted. Complaining to the management did bring some recompense but it seems that noise issues are a regular occurrence. This is not the place for travellers who want the assurance of a decent night’s sleep.

My husband and I visited Dun Laoghaire in June this year. I had stayed at Haddington House with a group of cyclists a few years ago and was so impressed, I wanted to stay again for this visit. It was like "coming home" to a familiar area, with the most friendly, helpful staff; close proximity to DART station, shopping, cliff walks, and the pier for evening walks. But the most impressive activity that staff introduced me to was the Irish Sea dip or swim, a short 6 minute stroll along the boardwalk from the hotel. I only wish I had known about this local tradition during my visit a few years ago. The water is the coldest I have ever experienced, ( I'm from Canada--that says it all), I'm sure I was breathless for the first few seconds in the easy-access-water, but I was hooked and did the swim for the last few days of our visit. Sile and Emma at the Haddington took us to the beach the first morning and Sile went into the water with me. It is quite the social event, with all ages taking a dip in the calm waters. I slept better than ever that night and my body felt awake and refreshed all day. Cross this swim off your bucket list when you visit the Haddington. It's safe, easy to access and friendly locals who will be happy to direct. The hotel staff will accommodate and you'll be hooked as well! We will be back for sure and recommend Haddington House to all visiting the Dublin area! The breakfasts are made to order and will fill you for the day. Best home made granola!

We stayed here for a second time while attending a concert in the RDS . The staff are so friendly and helpful in this hotel . This is really close to the dart so you are not paying the overpriced prices that you would pay in Dublin city . I would give the heads up thou, if not paying for breakfast when booking and you decide to have if the next morning, as this is not a buffet, the type of breakfast you want is individually priced like it would be in a cafe / restaurant. But overall I would def stay here again
