Sandymount Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

I was back in Dublin for a week and selected this hotel for location. It could not have been better: it is walking distance to the city if you're so inclined, but also a short stroll to the DART which is my preferred means of transport in Dublin. I really enjoyed my stay. The room was lovely and light, and a fantastic bathroom but the bed could have been a little longer. I'm 178 cm which is tall, but not that tall! I have to say I found the chairs in the bar simply weren't that comfortable - surprising in a hotel of this size. I also recommend you don't take the scrambled eggs at breakfast, dreadful. Perhaps I'd just been lucky with the quality at my previous stay but these tasted like powdered egg to me. Oh, and I got caught twice when cabs were ordered that would only take cash. Hopelessly inconvenient - make sure reception request a cab that will take credit card if you need to pay by credit card.

Had a great stay while in Dublin! Short walk to the train station and then short ride into town. We also explored the surrounding neighborhood, great plafes to eat, nice qiuet location. I would recommend for any type of travel.

I recently stayed at Sandymount for a trip to Dublin with my 2 friends! The receptionists were SO friendly, offered lots of local advice on arrival and even managed to find us a room to get us checked in early! The city sightseeing bus stops at the hotel at 9:30am to give you a lift into the centre if you don't fancy the walk! Room was beautiful, clean and spacious! Definitely recommend :)

Booked here a mid week stay with the other half. The location is nice and safe. It is right beside the Aviva stadium. The hotel offers a free shuttle to areas in Dublin which is a great service. I found the double bed very uncomfortable for 2 people. I could hear people in the rooms around me and in the morning I could here everybody that walked up and down the corridor, which was brutal for me. Noise seemed to transfer easily into the room. Room was clean and staff where friendly. On another note, outside my window on a ledge was littered with a lot of cigarette butts which was disgusting.

Just wrapped up a 3 night stay at the Sandymount on our trip to Dublin and had to tolerate ongoing work from 7 am to 7 pm very day. Called the front desk the first morning when we were awoke to the sound of scaffolding, laborers, and heavy diesel machinery and was told a “manager would take care of it” and never heard back from the hotel team. My wife and I were in town to see Dublin for the first time and upgraded our hotel specifically to stay at Sandymount based on the wonderful reviews we had read before booking. Unfortunately, the lack of warning of the ongoing refresh and lack of response from the front desk team sullied our opinion of this property. We were in a room on the first floor literally within feet of the workers (interior and exterior work is being performed) current projects so every morning they could be overheard. They also propped the door open so the hallway for the first floor was the same temperature as the outside temperature. Thankfully we get up early to get out and see the sites but if you are seeking tranquility and the ability to sleep in after a night out pub crawling, this is not your place. Perhaps if you are there on business this would be no problem as the room was decent and the location is not bad for getting in and out of the city center. I didn’t take more pics of the construction because I anticipated a response from the Sandymount management team, alas the one photo is the hallway in which our room was located. The plastic runner is from the construction team. I am not seeking compensation from this hotel, but only want to warn any travelers contemplating a stay here in the next few months.

Got in early to Dublin and the hotel made sure we were checked in early and were very friendly!! There is nothing like flying all night to a new place and having a clean room and a friendly face greeting you!! It meant alot! The room was clean and supplied with everything a weary traveler would require👍 Was a little shocked when I grabbed a towel from the rack and realized it was warm from the towel warmer👍 Highly recommend staying if you ever get the chance if you find yourself Dublin Ireland! Thank you Sandymount hotel!

Rooms are spacious and quiet , staff is efficient and friendly, if you asked for an early cab it was waiting for you at the correct time. The hidden gem is the restaurant located in the hotel. Best food of my entire trip! Located near Ballsbridge , former home off Marianne Faithfull !

Excellent location for Aviva Stadium. Excellent all round esp the nice housekeeping manager who quickly fixed my electronic door. Good value breakfast but does go quickly if you are late riser. Will defo use again.

Excellent location for visit to Aviva Stadium, great atmosphere on Match day with Hotel marquee set up as a bar. Some rooms are a long walk from reception. Staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms recently refurbished to a good standard.

I was there on a weekday, and perhaps no construction on a week-end but itt started before 8am and finished around 6pm. Granted, most people would be out of the room during the day and it was not annoying in the public areas but God help anyone in a back room who wanted to rest during the day!! ii was told it would be one for another 6 weeks.
