Beautiful site of a reasonably priced hotel. The location is a little out of Dublin but a city bus ride on the 46A will get you downtown within 30 min and is quite convenient, without bringing a car into the cities. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. We were fortunate to be in Ireland while it was very warm and sunny however our room AC was not working and although we asked for it to be looked at on three occasions it wasn’t until the second day that we were offered a room change. A few other interactions with staff made for a little less welcoming feeling. We were there for Thursday and Friday evenings, with several corporate events happening at the hotel, one was left feeling a little unwelcome when walking around the grounds which are quite pretty. This is more of a business hotel. The breakfast had a wide variety and was tasty. Overall a comfortable stay.

Very unique hotel. If you are looking for a modern hotel, this is not for you. Room service was very strange the first night (called us to ask how to make a club sandwich when it was on the menu). The a/c in the room did not work well. Would not accommodate late checkout.

It felt like an old manor. The location was great.

Beautiful estate, a destination in itself. It felt like stepping back in time!

Great experience. Fine property and great staff. Dining area very nice. Historic building and gardens.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Listening to the piano was heavenly as I lounged in the comfortable couches in the lounge.

No AC. Too far from the city center. Staff OK, friendly

Enjoyed our stay here. Wish we could've had a garden view but was told space was booked due to weddings. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and would've liked something special, but besides that, it was nice.

Such a beautiful hotel and location, super convenient to University College Dublin. We wish we had stayed here for our entire stay instead of splitting time in Dublin. The double double room was huge and comfortable! We had an issue with our heater, but the night staff provided us with a space heater just in case. We didn't get to enjoy any meals at the hotel, because of an early flight, but look forward to a second visit.

The property is beautiful. The rooms are older but the beds new and comfy. The hotel is too far for anything if you don't have a car. However if you have a car this hotel is 30min from pretty much everything. Front desk staff is great. A lot of events happen here so it's quite busy with people.

It was our first night in Ireland, and we were delighted by the beauty of the hotel. The courtesy of the staff made us feel welcomed, and we will return at our next opportunity.

Room was not clean and staff unfriendly. Rooms were old and needed to be updated. Good location.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during our week long trip to Ireland. Being well seasoned travelers we are very dubious about hotel accommodations in the UK (they are typically overly expensive, tight, cramped, small beds, lack a/c, and are not well kept properties), but we hoped that the Radisson label would lend a certain standard...and it did. Pulling up to the hotel, we were instantly impressed by the well tended facade and front rose garden. The reception workers were very welcoming and helpful with finding local food gems. Our room was spacious even for my husband (a 6' 2 bodybuilder), and the two twins pushed together to make a king was one of the most comfortable mattress and featherbed combinations we've seen abroad. The building itself is very beautiful and our room overlooked the beautiful back garden. The a/c was cold, but had a slight musty smell each time we turned it back on (it shuts off completely when you take your room key out of the power slot) after a long day of sightseeing. The location itself is a 20 minute drive from Dublin city center, more towards the suburbs making it very convenient for those who choose to drive a car like us, but without the smell and loud roadnoise. A city bus ran consistently just outside the hotel gates, but we never availed ourselves to it. The only downside to this hotel resides smack in its Orangerie Restaurant/Bar where we attempted three separate times to enjoy a meal and a pint, but with no success. The first time, we approached the bartender asked to sit, and was directed to a table where we sat for 15-20 minutes without any of the servers offering a menu or to take a drink order. We got up and left for the neighborhood pub (Gleesons, which we highly recommend), informing the front desk of the issue on the way out. The second time, we arrived at 9pm for a late meal, only to be told that the kitchen was closed and could only get drinks at that point. This wouldn't have been a big deal if the signage on the room television did say otherwise (11pm). So off to Gleesons again. The third night, we went for a late night (10pm) pint and made sure to sit directly at the bar in front of the bar tender so as to be noticed. Although we received our pint from a gracious and welcoming front desk worker obviously covering for absentee staff, we did witness a rather unpleasant exchange where he had to chide a server for not checking with a table who was obviously sitting for quite a while to be waited on. Our recommendation would be to hire this guy (give him a huge raise) to train all the other wait staff and bar tenders on how to serve hotel and outside guests. The Orangerie is not so big and not so busy that patrons should be ignored or overlooked. Just do your job well, and you will be rewarded. Although it's not a huge custom in Ireland to be tipped, all your international guests are more than willing to reward good service with 'a fiver' or more. All in all, we highly recommend this hotel and will be staying here again. We advise taking advantage of their early booking discounts through travel sites, as we were able to stay 6 nights for $780.00.

Great stylish converted stately house. Perfect for the business traveler or a special romantic get away. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful four night stay in this hotel and we were very happy with room, price and location of hotel. Unfortunately we were told rather rudely by a member of the hotel staff when we checked out that we had not paid for room despite having paid in advance. This lady kept on throwing her eyes to heaven and shrugging her shoulder, and she insisted that the hotel had no record of our payment. We had a flight to catch and we had no time at 6am to continue with the discussion. We will come back and stay in the hotel but we do hope the check out experience will run more smoothly.
