Red Cow Moran Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very nice hotel. Close to tram. If you don't mind a short walk. If driving it is A little hard to get to when driving if you are not familiar with the area I would recommend

We were so tired traveling, and this was our last of 8 nights. The Garmin couldn't find the hotel with the address, and when we happened to see the hotel, we had a difficult time trying to get to it. Once there, we were quite pleased with the check-in, staff, and our room. Overall very clean and comfortable. It was definitely worth the price.

A new tower was under construction with several floors. Hopefully this building will have outlets on more than one wall. We had a junior suite but had to sit at desk to plug in laptop instead of couch or bed. Could not see TV from couch or chair, only from bed.

Very nice good size room; nice staff; easy to find location; easy access to downtown Dublin by personal auto, taxi or light rail; I do not recommend personal driving in Dublin especially in rush hour traffic and parking is not easy at all and there was lot of parking on hotel site; I would stay there again as downtown is quite expensive.

There were postings all over hotel to pardon look because of ongoing construction. This would have been fine if they did not give us a room where the air conditioner did not work. It appeared they knew room vents were not working as there was a portable heater in room. The room was stuffy and the shower tiles were moldy. They did offer another room after we complained but at that point we already unpacked etc. The cost of hotel room was not much compared to others but reflects it. Would not go back.

The hotel itself is nice and the staff is wonderful. However, it's a ten minute walk to the tram which is then another 30-40 minute ride to the center of town. A cab ride is about twenty euro one way. The ceiling/corner wall has a strange drop that I was continuously banging my head on trying to get to the bed. I ultimately wound up checking out early for a place in the center of town.

The hotel was great, but after walking around Dublin all day and taking the Lous, it was still a long trek to get to the hotel.

Beautifully furnished, large rooms with pima cotton linens. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar next door were very good. Not too far from the center by car, but walking distance to the LUAS light rail. The buffet and hot breakfast were the best with excellent service. More like a 5 star experience!

Stayed here while attending a concert at the O2. Convenient to the O2 as the Luas red line runs all the way there. Hotel was good. Bar busy.

This hotel was nothing special. The location was far from ideal, but overall, my experience was fine. If you are from America, you could find this hotel to be similar to a Best Western or AmericInn. I was satisfied and would return back in the future. It the kind of hotel people need to just for bed and shower facilities.

I had the worst experience with this hotel. When I arrived they had our reservation completely wrong and then charged us extra for having a third person who wasn't under our reservation when in reality they were. After dealing with this, my friends and I reached our room where none of the outlets worked and neither did the appliances provided such as the TV and the hairdryer. The manager then proceeded to tell me that in order to dry my hair I had to hold it extremely far away or it would burn out, however even when I did this it still failed to work. The manager then refused to change our room or to at least comp us the extra money we were being charged. He was extremely rude and unhelpful. Problems like these continued throughout the weekend. At checkout it seems they had charged us an extra amount for breakfast when it was already included in the price we paid and in the extra fee they added on at check in. Overall the staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone.

My brother and I took our mom, who is 83yrs old, on her dream trip in her life! We started in London, up to Edinbrough, over to Londonderry where we have genealogy roots, down to Dublin! We were very excited about the stay at the Red Cow Moran. It was luxurious and warming to step in the front desk area! We were so pleased with the lift that is provided for guests, as our mother has problems with stairs. The room was very comfortable except for one thing, my brother is 6ft 4in, he kept bumping his head on the beam that extended in our room! I bumped my head as well when I went to sit at the table to use the WI FI. Everything smelled wonderful, the hallways, the room, and even the dining room where we had our breakfast. Very pleasant sitting in a bright room that is so elegantly decorated for dining! However,I did not see anyone for the 2 days we were there at the desk to help us for day activities out and about. We had questions about maps and places to eat while we were planning while out in the city sightseeing. The staff tried to help with what they could. My favoirte part in staying at the Red Cow Moran were the comfortable beds and the leisure bathtub that is so long and deep for a great soak for my tired body and feet after sightseeing! I would love to come back for another visit!

It claimed to be a 4 star and it was far from it. But the worst part for that it was misleading where it was located. NO WHERE NEAR city center. Which was a big bummer for our 1 night in Dublin.

Very good value, clean hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, great location We were served the inclusive dinner with our package between 5 and 6, even though the restauraunt didn't officially open until 6pm. On the LUAS redline, which if you don't want the hassle of driving in Dublin, this goes all the way to 'The O2 (Point)'. Lots of parking Would recommend with this website. Bit far (sometimes hard to get taxi at night - 30 euro)out of Dublin city if you are planning a night out in the city, but perfect if you use the LUAS and don't like city driving.

Great food great location for auto travel

nothing special

This hotel was nothing special. The location was far from ideal, but overall, my experience was fine. If you are from America, you could find this hotel to be similar to a Best Western or AmericInn. I was satisfied and would return back in the future. It the kind of hotel people need to just for bed and shower facilities.
