Hilton Dublin Kilmainham

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Across from Kilmainham Gaol. The art museum is across the street. The hotel has onsite parking. A patio lounge for great weather. Breakfast. And a bistro bar. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The front desk staff was accommodating and assisted with scheduling taxis and recommended local sites

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay in a family room, the room was great very clean, staff at the hotel are excellent very friendly and helpful. The pool is excellent. The only reason I did not give 5stars is the fact that the restaurant is so overpriced, there really is no need to to charge so much for food and drink it certainly made us not drink as much!

I have used Hilton Kilmainham several times as a venue for business training programmes. All the staff are very attentive and provide great service. In particular I would like to commend and acknowledge Stefan who has been my regular point of contact with regard to room set up, facilities etc. He is extremely professional in his role, prompt with regard to attention, ensures that the small items are not overlooked and as a result the training day always run smoothly. For me he is the face of the Hilton and he does a superb job!

I usually don't write reviews however this time I thought it necessary. My family and I were going to the Jail museum so we arrived very early thinking we could have a family breakfast to the restaurant around the area but we quickly realized it was some sort of a holiday and they were all closed.we managed to come across this hotel and we saw the brunch menu with full Irish breakfast.the host told us they were not serving brunch until 11.00 am and it was only 9.30 am we were starving.the host told us the price was €18.95 each and walked away.while we stood there lost and upset a waitress approached us and asked to assist.cut story short she went out of her way to accommodate us with the full Irish breakfast and served us the whole time.sold us about the Hilton hotel and we wished we were staying here.she was very professional,friendly and knowledgeable.her name was Velia truly a gem couldn't thank her enough.

The Hilton Kilmainham is an oasis in Dublin. (Solid 4-star Hotel.) We checked in mid-afternoon to a beautiful and comfortable room, with a walk-out balcony. What really stood out was Ana, who IMO, may be the best Hilton front manager, ever. She was so very helpful and pleasant (and thank you for the chocolate salted caramels!) Hotel is directly across from the Gaol, and places you on-the-spot for pick up by the Green DoDublin Hop-On-Hop-Off (the best hoho) Hotel is across from the Museum of Modern Art, with beautiful grounds to explore. We had dinner at the hotel: Delicious Fish & Chips, with generous drinks. The breakfast buffet in the morning was expansive, tasty and filling. The location is a 10-minute walk to Hueston Station, where you can hop on the Luas light rail into town, and return to quiet evening away from the busy city center. From Hueston, the Airlink 747 to the airport. (Hueston is the first stop, so you board an empty coach, which will fill rapidly en route.) Wish we had more time to enjoy the Hilton Kilmainham this visit (had an early flight.) We will be back and look forward to another fabulous stay. And next visit, with plans for the pool and spa.

I have to share my experience at this hotel , sadly my mother in law passed away last week .My family and I stayed for 3 nights and we also had the the funeral lunch at the Hilton. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have done enough to help us at this very sad time .The food was fantastic , all of the staff were truly amazing . The rooms were spacious and very clean . The events staff Maeva , David the restaurant manager , Shauna and Anna at Reception Nikki and Jane serving breakfast drinks etc a very big thanks for making us very comfortable . We honestly could not have asked for better service . I have travelled a lot and can honestly say I have never met such dedicated lovely staff , nothing was too much trouble for any of them .I look forward to visiting again in the future under happier circumstances.Thank you to all at the Hilton in Kilmainham for a truly wonderful experience .

Just a quick note to thank all the staff for looking after my family and siblings this week. Every single person in the hotel went completely out of their way in order to please and accommodate our whole group including the lunch in the restaurant for over 90 people after the funeral of my mum. You were a absolutely amazing so thank you! In addition the hotel is fabulous, rooms amazing and people working there the hardest working and kindest staff I have ever come across in any hotel in all my travels Thank you once again Aidan Farrell

I am diamond member for life and have lived in hotel for about 20 years. The management went out their way to accomadate us. Every day we had tours,they would book the cab and fix us a sack breakfast. All details were ready at 6:15 am . I was astounded. The sack breakfast was a freshly made sandwich, fruit, yogurt and water. Sometime we left early and they would go to the kitchen and get us coffee. I enjoyed my stay there. I will be writing a letter to management and believe me this is rare. We were here for a week.

The Hilton Dublin Kilmainham is in a terrific location for both seeing some of the popular sights in Dublin and for renting a car close to the edge of the city to get out of town without having to drive in the Dublin traffic. The rooms are very nice (attractive, clean, and spacious) and the breakfast was excellent. The one disadvantage is that there are no family rooms, so 2 adults and 2 children have to book two rooms, but the second adjoining room is offered at 50% the price of the first room, so that helps.

This is one of the best hotels we've stayed in and is probably the most affordable 4 star hotel around Dublin, and it really is a 4 star experience. The bed was massive, very comfy and in a huge room that could easily accommodate its size. The room was very comfortable, even for college work we had to get done, at an ample desk for study. We ordered room service on a few occasions which wasn't cheap but delicious and worth the cost. The TV was massive. The shower pressure was very powerful and the toiletries were so nice. The pool was lovely, beautiful lighting and a nice place to relax. The gym was very well equipped. The staff were fantastic, so accommodating and flexible, front desk, manager of the bar, room service, gym, cleaning staff etc. The hotel should be very proud of them! There is good security in the lifts, requiring a key card validation. It is a bit out of the way but the area is close to Heuston and the Luas and cheaper than city centre hotels so you really can't complain. It is a safe area, we were happy to have a midnight stroll to get some air. Which brings me to my only complaint. The room didn't have a window. And after our night out the first night we would have loved some air!! But all in all it was a fabulous stay and I would definitely stay again.
