The address and name on Orbitz are wrong, or at least were wrong on the day we got there. The wrong address forced me and my friend to walk for some 40 minutes with bags in late evening in a deserted mostly industrial area. Not nice at all. The hotel didn't offer any compensation, upgrade, free breakfast or whatsoever, just told it was Orbitz fault. Orbitz blames the hotel. I don't care about this blame game, but if you have a customer seriously wronged due to your inability to check how your hotel appears on external booking websites, well then, do something.

Hotel is spacious, good & friendly staff, as advertise... And, convenient near transportation both to the Airport and to down town Dublin.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sheldon Park Hotel. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

It was close to the bus and tram stations and close to fast food. It is great for someone wanting to stay outside of the city and use public transportation to the city each day. The staff was friendly, they had wi-fi and free parking and it was a good value.

We landed early and went to find the hotel. We were 5 hours early and they still gave us our room. I was totally amazed by that! thank you so much!! Little further away from things, but it was only a drop off point for when we first landed.

The most greatest thing. ..we landed early in morning, went to find where hotel was. They let us check in like 5 hours earlier! !!! That was so awesome. Very helpful front desk. For whatever reason the bathtub/shower is very high step. So an elderly person might have trouble.Have to use your key card to turn on lights in the room...had to figure that out. That was amusing. Gas station nearby that has ATM ( able to walk it).

I booked this hotel while my family and I were in Dublin for the day and we wanted to stay overnight locally. I have made many travel plans through an online travel site in previous years. Everything went well with checking in and obtaining keys for 2 rooms. The rooms were clean and the lobby area was decent. We took advantage of the pool facilities, which were a pleasant surprise. However, upon checking out, a woman at the front reception told me that she only received 1 booking online and that I needed to pay for another room. I was quite concerned because I received the confirmation after booking that stated my credit card was charged for the full amount that included 2 rooms. My family waited patiently, but the conversation with the woman at the front desk was very upsetting and delayed our visit to Dublin by nearly two hours. Even after calling my credit card company in the US confirming the payment, the woman still did not believe and wanted an email confirmation from the travel site. I refused to pay, knowing that I had already pre-paid, but the hotel never received the booking.

Really, we just used the hotel as a staging place so that we could catch an early flight out of Dublin the next morning, closing out our vacation to Ireland. The only disappointment was that the hotel is not as close to the airport as we had hoped. It's actually 15 miles or so. In this sense, we thought the hotel's website, touting proximity to the airport, was a bit misleading

The hotel is a decent place to spend the night waiting for a flight but I wouldn't recommend it if your main purpose is to sight see in Dublin. Transportation via taxi or bus will be required. There are not many restaurants in the area of the hotel but the pub attached to the hotel is fantastic. The waitstaff and bartenders are friendly and know everyone, even brand new guests, by name. The food was impressive and reasonably priced.

The Sheldon Park Hotel in Dublin Ireland is a great place to book a trip if you plan on staying in the Dublin area of Ireland. It is two blocks away from the Luas Rail, which runs directly to the City Centre (about 15 min ride) check in time for us was 2pm and our flight arrived at 8am, so book a late afternoon or evening flight. I'd recommend going to the airport and talking to the tourist information booth there, they can hook you up with a pass that gives you access to the Dublin Bus Service + unlimited Luas travel, me and my girlfriend got a 7 day ticket for 30 Euros each...well worth it since you'll be using the Luas to get to Dublin everyday, and the bus is good if you are in the city and want to go somewhere else. The shower in our room kinda sucked, but that may be all showers in Europe for all i know. The soap/shampoo they provide you with at the hotel is all natural and smells a bit weird, so you may definately want to bring your own. There is a 24 hour McDonald's, and since a lot of Pubs (just about all from my experience) stop selling pub grub around 9, the McDonalds is a good alternative to get late night munchies, but try to stay away because the pub grub in any pub is delicious and fresh! P.S. Ireland is a small country so i'd also recommend doing the Cliffs of Moher tour, the brochuer can be also found at the tourist info desk at the airport when you first land. It was only 20 Euro for an all day trip, which included all transportation. Another great place to visit right near Dublin is Howth, which the Luas can take you to the Connolly station to take the DART train to Howth, which is a great small village near the shore specializing in seafood, but also has a sweet cliff walk you can do. If you goto Howth, plan to go in the morning to get great cliff views!!

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night as a stopover after our flights, and before we drove down to our final destination in County Cork. The room was completely acceptable, and met all our basic needs. It was fairly difficult to find while driving in a car, but I get the impression that this is standard for anything in Dublin if you don't know the city. The pub/restaurant attached is also kind of pricey, but this too seems to be normal. It did offer free parking, which was really great, and the folks at the reception were really helpful. Overall, I'd recommend this hotel for anyone who didn't need to be close to the city center.

Great hotel if you are looking to get out of the City Centre for some quiet. There is a tram stop about 1-2 blocks from the hotel and a McDonald's nearby. The food was excellent (but a little pricey). The staff was very friendly and helpful.....would definitely stay here again!!!

At first, I thought that the hotel was way to far away from City Center, Dublin. But with the Luis Tram within two blocks from the hotel, it was easy getting to downtown Dublin, Temple Bar area, etc. The hotel is in a quiet area, clean, and safe. What makes this hotel unigue is the Fitness/Pool/Sauna Leisure Club that a hotel guest has full access to. My biggest disappointment was that they felt I paid to little for the room and a continental breakfast did not come with it. What they offer is overpriced anyway. I fould myself having breakfast in town. If given the option, spend a bit more on your room that will include the breakfast each morning! The pub at the hotel was excellent. The varied menu was surpurb, with daily specials offered. Entertainment on Fri. and Sat nights was excellent and alot of fun!

Don't be misled by the pool as advertised - it is next door in a separate facility. Other than a very friendly bartender and one of the desk clerks hospitality was not great. Location is good for light rail service into Dublin. Would recommend limited stay here, find B&Bs instead where owners take pride in their business.

This hotel was very easy to access by public transportaion from the airport. The staff were very helpful, the room was spacious, clean and very welcoming. The amenities were more than appropriate for family and business travelers. I would recommend this hotel to others and I plan to return to this hotel again on my next trip to the area.
