We spent three nights at this hotel. Though it is not walking to distance to the highlights of Dublin, it was perfect for us! We loved being across from the jail (especially since we didn't get advanced tickets and had to go over and try and get some of the day of reserve tickets!). It was also on the route of the Rock n Roll run, which was amazing when I was about to be picked up by the pace bus! Beautiful grounds of the Museum of Modern Art is across the street. Breakfast was awesome with a buffet and ordering choices and a gluten-free zone, with its own toaster (my sister-in-law has celiacs). The pool was awesome- one of my son's favorite parts! The restaurant for lunch/dinner was a bit slow service, but the outside eating was a nice atmosphere for lunch. Rooms were clean and comfy! The hop on/hop off bus picks up right across the street! Definitely go have dinner across the street at Dolve Vita. The cheese on their pizza was so fresh and they had a myriad of gluten free pasta choices!

The hotel is located just by Pheonix Park and is ideally situated to explore the city. The hop on and off bus goes past and it is only a short walk to the Luas tram. The car park is underground and there is a charge of 12 Euros per night which is not bad for city parking. Our room was large and comfortable with the shower over the bath. The bedding is automatically feathers so if you want hypoallergenic it is best to request it before you arrive, however they changed mine really quickly when I asked. Maps of Dublin are available from reception if you ask. Soya milk is available in the bar and restaurant if you ask. Disabled access is good. We had evening meal in the bar and I had salmon which was delicious. Water for the table is available if you ask. Breakfast was a disappointment. The cooked breakfast was only warm and some of the food was stuck together. Our poached eggs took 20 mins to arrive............ I think it is best to book through the hotel website rather than through a third party.

Two seniors and grandchild. Outstanding hotel in a fun city. It's not in the center of town but a nice location anyway. The staff was super at every turn; helpful, professional. They made the stay easy and fun, for all three of us.

Our first night in Dublin was spent at this Hilton. We wandered across the street to a pub, I believe the Patriot Pub, but found it wanting. We came back to the Hotel's restaurant/bar and loved it. The staff was very friendly and the prices moderate. We ate and had a nice bottle of Pinot Noir. The hotel is a bit difficult to find so bring your G P S but well worth the work. They have a nice pool, spa and gym on the lower floor. All in all, a very positive experience. Unfortunately, U-2 came into town the next day so couldn't extend our booking or we would have stayed for at least one more day.

location for this hotel is within 15 to 20 minutes to city centre .Hop on hop off service is adjacent to hotel and is a cheap way to travel throughout the city within specific times. Hotel itself is nice rooms are well decorated and well serviced.Staff are helpful and friendly .Front terrace is a nice open air space.The bar in this hotel has no atmosphere and is aimed at food service .Dont expect any irish craic or banter here.Kids are catered for in this hotel though kids menu was too sophisticated when simpler food would be more suitable.Over all nice stay .

What I loved about the Hilton Dublin Kilmainham: location was superb; staff was extremely thoughtful; room was large and very clean; the bed was extremely comfortable (very important especially to an international traveler); there were three chairs in the generously-sized room and one chair in particular was so very comfortable; two phones were provided in the room; room safe; ample closet space; loved the work area to stretch out and write; loved the abundant lighting in the room; what I truly appreciated was the design of the hotel: the elevators were separated by doors and this makes it very quiet as I did not hear the elevators from the room. Additionally the elevators featured a pleasant and soft chime. I found this hotel to be very thoughtfully reinvented from its origin as a chocolate factory, a solid, sound, quiet building. What a restful respite to my introduction to Ireland. Thank you Alex and the entire staff at Hilton Dublin Kilmainham: well done, well done!

I stayed at the Hilton in early July. We checked in with ease and the ladies at reception were quite helpful. My room was on the third floor and was quite comfortable. Bed was large and room was quiet. We ate at the bistro that night and Lorna was a treasure. She was full of smiles and jokes. Our food was delayed and she was full of apologies and made sure the rest of our evening ran smooth. Have to say one of the easiest stays I've had.

We had a big and silent room, The beds were comfort and nice,big restroom. The room was very well cleaned. Very helpfull staff and the breakfast was great! The Luas was only 5 minutes walk away and took 10 minutes to city center.

Hotel very clean , very convinent for Dublin centre , nice bar lovely breakfast, big rooms , nice staff , car park below which they charged 12 euros for , would stay again no problem , no bad words for this hotel

Loved this hotel from the beginning, its location which needs a little bit of public transport to get into the city center but it was quite good experience, LOVED the breakfast which was great in price/value, great selection with good quality items - well worth the price. Only hiccup was that I got a stained (with brown something...) towel one day, I did not withdraw points because the maid could not see it before she put it there. Most definitely I recommend this hotel, its staff is proficient, effective, polite, kind, informative.
