            6.2

            Nice sea view, nearby bus stop to Airport and Dublin City Center. I stayed in the new wing: nice huge bed, good shower, and two seats. Not much room, but enough. Liked the pub downstairs, you could easily get a drink. Did not had any sound-problems here, maybe because I was here on a weekday. Staff was helpful. A little bit chaotic when a change occurred, but everything worked out fine.

            Breakfast was terrible. On weekdays it should start at 7, but the guests had to pull the cook out of his kitchen at 7.15 when nothing was ready. Poor breakfast quality. Restaurant was still dirty from the evening before. Definitely not worth the price.

            i enjoyed the night we had it was a party i was at

            i thought my time there was good but the hotel was very basic not much for children to do but it suited my needs at the time

            The hotel personel at the reception was very helpful and kind, especially one of the blond ladies. The location was ideal for a long walk along the beach and it's only 20 mins away from the airport. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. Free parking in front of the hotel. Good quality hotel in relation to the price (I didn't have breakfast, so I can't say anything about it). Bar and restaurant next door.

            Several buslines stop near the hotel. It wasn't a problem going to Dublin city centre (although the busses take a while to get there), but coming back to the hotel was. One bus didn't show up at all and it was quite hard to figure out as a tourist in Dublin which buslines would go to Portmarnock and from which busstop. The busdrivers weren't helpful and some didn't even know themselves. Maybe the darts train is a better option?

            location great.room was clean.

            had to call reception as we couldnt sleep due to extreme noise.Security came promptly but we didnt get to sleep until 3am.We were exhausted the next day.This was not a good experience for our 11yr old daughter.Also the breakfeast was cold and honestly the worst we have had in a long time and certainly not worth the cost.

            the hotel location was ideal for our needs.

            the whole hotel needs a revamp. the walls are paper thin. the receptionist was asked for two items and failed to deliver both had to go looking for them.. and I wouldnt advice eating in the pub..

            the price!!!! €150 for 2 nights for 2 adults and 2 kids! very helpful staff. Very big & comfortable bedroom, large bathroom, great bar food menu. The best place for a stay North Dublin near Howth, Malahide. Portmarnock beach is beautiful. We'll be back

            nothing, it was perfect.

            Location

            Although the hotel reception and room was well presented I found it very difficult to sleep as the heating was on all night, at 3am I tried to turn off the radiator but to no avail. The towel rail in the bathroom was also extremly hot and located so close to the toilet that you had to use a towel to stop getting burned when using it. Dangerous and only a matter of time before someone sues them! The charge for a breakfast was e12:50, there are plenty of other places nearby where you can get a better breakfast at a more reasonable price.

            The location by the sea. The quiet atmosphere in the bedrooms.

          • Couple
            8.2

            The staff was very friendly and they are very helpful (They made a big plates of sandwiches even though the room service was closed)

            Was attending a wedding in a nearby hotel so location was ideal. Lovely to walk out the next morning and enjoy the sea view and a walk on the beach.

            Ordered a sandwich in the bar after check-in. Service was very slow. Even when we paid it took about 10 minutes to get our change. Bar was quiet so didn't see any obvious reason for this.

            a very nice atmosphere and pure luxury

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            The location on the beach was very nice.

            The rooms were very noisy. Too many weekend guests seemed to be there for drunken gatherings. They were coming back to their rooms, shouting and laughing in the corridors as well as in their rooms up till 3am on Friday and Staurday night. It might not make much difference but some signs near the guest rooms asking people to respect otehr guests' desire for sleep would be useful.

            Really nice helpful cheerful staff. Beautiful View. Happy with it and will return
