Dublin, Ireland
Reviewed 14 July 2015 via mobile

Very nice hotel but no atmosphere though. The bar is cold and pints aren't that nice. The staff are very attentive and polite. We got great deal on booking.com but prob wouldn't stay again. No complaints just wasn't my cup of tea. Nothing really in the area to do.

Reviewed 14 July 2015

The main drawback of this hotel is that it is in the wrong place - Balbriggan has very little going for it other than a plethora of fast food outlets - could not find a decent place to eat so we drove the 5 miles to Skerries each night where there are several very good restaurants. Why did we not...

I am guessing that the title of my review instantly makes people feel that this hotel is not worth staying at, this is not true. My gripe is that the hotel was advertised as being close to Dublin airport, but it was actually a 40 euro cab trip away!! The hotel itself is quite nice and clean, but not what...

The hotel is in the centre on Balbriggan about 30km from Dublin. I drove from Dublin Port to the hotel in about half an hour. Large, clean room and bathroom.

We booked in this hotel on our last three days in Ireland for 1 night. The reason being its close to Dublin Airport. A five star in Nz is the highest star accommodation you can get.
