We spent New year's eve in Dublin and stayed at Hilton Kilmainham. It was a good experience. The Hotel is across the Street from Dublin's Gaul (one of the city's historical highlights) with very good accommodations, garage, etc. A good Experience

Really reliably good accommodation outside of city centre. Across the road from Kilmainham Gaol which should be on everyone's list of must see historical sites. Rooms really clean and comfortable. Parking available and convenient. Breakfast is great and staff friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here. About 10 mins bus public bus ride from city centre. Plenty of buses. Would have scored a 5 if the shower had been better. Shower over bath too narrow. Would be better to just have a shower stall as bathrooms fairly small. But still it was fine...

I love this hotel and location. Set off a bit from the busy streets in Dublin but right next to key points of interest. There is even a hop-on hop-off point right outside ( great way to inexpensively get around Dublin). Has always met Hilton standards on each stay ( 6 at this point). Clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds. Staff is great and always helpful. Nice choices for breakfast.

We had a lovely stay again this time we took my daughter for her 21st birthday. Staff made sure it was special for her. We love the breakfast and the pool was fab with our youngest. We will be back 😊

The hotel is very nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The elevator had a very large dead bug that had been stepped on. It was there for at least an hour. The hall way had a musty smell but overall, I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a wedding package - an excellent stay in every way from arrival to departure. Breakfast was excellent and the full Irish and the level of service what you would expect from a Hilton at this price point. Highly recommended.

Can't recall my room number but I think we were third floor, around to the left after going up stairs/elevator. Rooms were quiet and we got very good rest. We planned a daunting trip of daily flights to Scotland, England and Italy so we were back late each night and up early each morning. First things first: Bus is fairly convenient, leaving every hour for the airport (and half hour for the hotel). But ... he will leave 5 minutes early once in a blue moon and leave you stranded if you're not down their early. It happened to us on the last day and I was a little perturbed. As a consequence, we took a taxi which was also very expedient and actually cheaper. ***So the bus isn't as convenient as it might seem. Note: the hotel's bus system is to give you a little ticket in the morning for the trip and/or return and you have to hold onto that tiny ticket all day. Pretty archaic system and one of our days I lost the ticket in the pile of receipts that I had amassed. As I already mentioned, we returned late each night, eager to lay our heads. The staff locks the turnstyle door and the only entrance is from a side exit. When we returned one night, the staff was nowhere to be found so we spent a few minutes banging/ringing, trying to get in before a few guys came walking from around the back side of the bar. Don't know what they were doing, but they definitely weren't watching for guests who needed to enter while it was 30 degrees and raining.

Have just returned from a 2 night stay and enjoyed every minute of it - beautiful hotel in great location. Booked in April 2016 for an extra Christmas present for my girls and decided to book for New Year’s Eve to make it a bit special. Staff are great and very accommodating. Rang in 2018 in the bar with complimentary drink which was lovely and spent New Year’s Day at the Zoo which was a 10 minute walk away and returned to the hotel to make use of the swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Room was very comfortable with a massive bed and the breakfast catered for everyone. I would recommend this hotel to others will definitely return for another stay.

Wonderful stay- albeit too short- at this hotel just on the outskirts of the city central. Easy walk from the main bus station. Staff was superb, from the welcoming front desk staff to the bartenders and restaurant staff. We arrived hours early for check-in and were quickly accomodated and made to feel most welcome, even offered help in making change for the bus into the city center. Comfortable beds, great water pressure in showers. Breakfast on Christmas Eve morning was teriffic and far superior to most hotel food ( my family is still raving about it!). We look forward to our return!

Excellent customer service with professional staff. I have stayed at other hotels around Dublin and this one is the best so far. The whole hotel was clean from the entrance to the room and restaurant!
