I tend to stay in Best Western's when I have the choice. This one did not disappoint. The room was clean and the price very fair for Dublin. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was ideal for us and convenient for catching the bus to other locations. There were some very nice restaurants just across the street...

We found this exactly perfect. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The breakfast is fantastic with something for everyone. The restaurant had great food, selection and price. Also had entertainment! The minute you walk in there is a comfort level. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again.

Booking in was fine.....room was small with a king size bed. Disappointed with low pressure in shower and a most annoying remote for the TV. We didn't eat here so no comment on the food. Location is good for both airport and GAA followers.

This hotel is close to airport. Far from everything else. However, it was perfect for our needs on our last two days in Dublin. There's places to eat right across the street. It was a 20 min walk to the center of the city. The hotel itself was pretty amazing. They have a resturant and bar

I was really disappointed with this hotel. I appreciate it's a bit dated, but the room had an unpleasant damp odour when I opened the door, which really shouldn't happen regardless of how old the hotel is. The bed was annoyingly short too and my legs were sticking out the end. Service was friendly, but unfortunately the hotel building itself...

Not too distant from the airport. It is located on a good public transportation line. The rooms were very clean, quiet and provided a good place to rest. The staff was very helpful, especially the desk staff. good shops in area.

Hotel was very nice, comfortable and very clean. We got breakfast on room services and it was excellent. However we were asked to pay for parking outside the door of the hotel which I feel is a little cheeky but really is not something which would be exclusive to this hotel but a bear hug I have with hotels in...
