Hotel was picked by my employer as it was close to where I was working. About 8 km/5 miles from central Dublin. I could not fault this hotel in any manner. Room was spacious and comfortable.

Interesting boudoir chic decoration and friendly, helpful staff complimented the comfortable room here. Whilst the breakfast wasn't really as good as I'd have expected for this standard of hotel, the Thai food in the restaurant was first class. The small gym has a good range of quality up-to-date equipment including kettle bells and foam rollers, which I've seldom seen before....

Cork, Ireland
Reviewed 22 April 2015

This is a very modern, quirky hotel but is showing its age, quite shabby and needs a good deep clean and a lick of paint. The soundproofing is quite abysmal, I was kept awake by someone snoring in the next room. Having said that, the staff and service is perfect. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is delicious.

boudoir chic room, clean . Friendly staff. Morning Breakfast could be a bit more exciting but no complains. Slight off the bitten track but close to transport links like to Laus. Otherwise a good choice if you are not near the city centre

I would definitely recommend the beacon for a break away. The staff were so helpful they couldn't do enough for us. The decor is young and funky, I loved the king room. The food and the drink was amazing. I cant fault this hotel at all. Will be going back for another visit for sure.
