Guest Reviews

Located in the quite suburb of Sandymount, about 2 miles south of the city centre is this gem of a hotel. It is big and has lots of rooms. We stayed twice in the same week, in different rooms, and they were equally as clean and spacious. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. There is free use of a computer and printer, just ask at the desk for the password. There is free car parking on site. There is a huge range of choices for breakfast including the legendary full Irish breakfast. I can't comment on evening meals as we chose to eat out in town but have no reason to think the cuisine is less than excellent. The hotel is very near the Aviva stadium but this is not a problem unless you are arriving when there is a large sporting event taking place, in which case you can expect the hotel and surrounding area to be very busy. It's just five minute walk to Lansdowne Road station and three stops on the Dart train to Tara Street, right in the city centre.A return ticket costs Euro 4.20. The hotel is about 20 minutes drive from the airport. You will find there is a toll of Euro 3.00 to pay on the M50 motorway. If you are considering visiting Dublin I recommend you stay at this suburban hotel and travel in by train or bus as Dublin city centre hotels can be noisy, often have no parking and may have trains running by the windows until late at night. reviewed by Allan, Newlyn, United Kingdom, 29th Setpember 2019 on TripAdvisor

Stayed in this hotel for three nights with friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were lovely, better in person that the photos do justice. The bathroom is very nice too, with the shower being actually decent.
The staff were always really friendly and helpful, no matter what time of day or what query we had. We arrived quite late on our first day (midnight), but the hotel were more than happy to check us in and help us when we arrived (I did contact them prior to coming to ensure this would be okay).
The breakfast was really good as well, huge range of choice to suit many dietry needs.
The location for us was perfect. It is far enough out of the city centre that it is quiet and peaceful, but close enough that you can walk or get a quick train. The hotel is right next to the Aviva stadium, so not sure what it would be like when a match is on, but i don't see it being a problem. Overall, a fabulous hotel. I would 100% go back if / when I go back to Dublin. reviewed by Rinba, Basingstoke, England, United Kingdom, 29th August 2019 on TripAdvisor

'I don’t know where to start really. Probably the luckiest finds I’ve ever had the privilege of discovering. Had 2 nights here as I was attending an exhibition at the Royal Dublin Society. I wanted something close by, and nowhere near the hustle and bustle of downtown Dublin. It’s a beautiful old building on a quiet residential street, absolutely steeped with character. Everything about this place is taste, class and individuality. The rooms are of a good size and either look out over the well tended gardens or the front of the house. There is a drawing room where tea is served whilst you enjoy the artwork adorning the walls. The smell of fresh orchids adds to the charm. There is a dining room that serves the most agreeable, full Irish breakfast and the staff, be it the owner who cannot do enough for you or the house keepers or receptionists are of the highest calibre. Absolutely top notch. Thank you John and your team. I cannot wait to return.' reviewed by Airmilesjames, United Kingdom on TripAdvisor, 17th May 2018

'This was our first trip to Dublin and I booked it to celebrate my partners birthday! I let the hotel we may be arriving early and they did everything possible to accommodate us. When we arrived we had a bottle of wine waiting for us and some choccies and the room was lovely. We had a great weekend, and the staff were very helpful with every request even bringing fresh milk to our room so we could have a nice cup of tea in the mornings. The hotel is very well situated, only 15 minute taxi drive into Dublin. There are also two lovely little villages close by, the village of Ballsbridge which had a very good Indian called The Jewel in the Crown. There are a few other nice eateries around. Also the village of Sandymount has a few nice eateries and is located close to the beach, so you can go for a nice morning stroll. All in all this hotel has lots to offer. As well as its own restaurant and bar. There is also car parking on site. When we go back to Dublin we will most definitely booking in here again! :) First Class!' reviewed by Laura G, Caister-on-Sea, England, United Kingdom 2nd October 2017

'We booked three nights at the Sandymount during a touring holiday of Ireland. It was proving difficult to find a good quality hotel close to the city centre with parking, for a reasonable price - and this one appeared to tick all the boxes. Very happy to report that it lived up to all expectations. Our triple room was a great size, with quality bed linen and towels, room and bathroom modern and spotlessly clean, and the price included full breakfast. The bar area was very nice, with plenty of comfy sofas in lots of little cosy corners, and the friendly and helpful staff made for a very friendly, warm and relaxed atmosphere throughout the entire hotel.

The hotel is a short walk from the Aviva Stadium so would make it a perfect choice for anyone attending an event, yet it is tucked away in a quiet street. There are several restaurants nearby and the hotel serves meals and bar snacks also. Getting into the city centre is extremely quick and easy - there is a DART station a 5-10 minute walk away and this takes you directly into the city (a 5-10 minute journey). I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again; in fact it would be the first one on my list for next time.' Reviewed by Spitfirebird, Dorchester, United Kingdom 28th September 2017
