“are you going to a game or concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

The staff at this hotel are great, very friendly and helpful. The room even though a little bland was
large and comfortable.I spent time just sitting around in the room which i never do in hotels.The food in the bar was really good as was the service. If you are going to an event in the rds or a game at the aviva this hotel is perfect. I have absolutely no complaints.

For those that like big chain hotels in the touristy center of the city......The Sandymount is NOT for you. It's a small hotel in a neighborhood on the outskirts of Dublin within short walking distance to the DART train station(only 2 stops to central Dublin). We took the 30 minute stroll from the hotel to city center several times. It's quiet, small, and affordable. Unless you like to party, and we do, DO NOT stay here if there is a Rugby match at the Aviva Stadium. It's going to be rowdy with lots of pre and post game partying on the front lawn. The rooms are decent size by European standards and quiet enough to open the windows at night and not be bothered by noise. Rooms are basic with tiny tv's, outdated bathrooms(sink has separate faucets for hot and cold water) and decor, small safe and closet and NO mini bar. Beds are on the stiff side and pillows leave something to be desired. Free WIFI a big plus. Hotel itself has lots of public spaces, a restaurant(which we did not eat at but looked and smelled good) and a fully stocked bar with lots of drink options. The front desk staff is the highlight of this hotel, friendly and always greeting you the moment you walk in the door. Helped us with planning of trips to Belfast and Cliffs of Moher. I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it, but not to people who are hotel snobs.

I found the staff so nice and more than happy to help us in any way. I only stayed for 1 night with my 3 year old son and my mother but really enjoyed the stay and wish it could have been longer. The dart is just down the road and 1 stop away from the bord gais energy theatre which is then only a few min walk away. Loved the location as it was a nice area and quite but also really easy to get to places. The hotel was really quite and peaceful. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel as my son was tierd, I asked reception about takeaways in the area and the lady gave me take away menus to take to my room and order. I asked for plates and forks at the bar and the bar man was happy to give them to me no questions asked. The room was lovely,not very big but not small either, we had plenty of room and it was nicely decorated. The only faults I had with the hotel was the room was really warm even though I had turned of the heat and had windows open and also when leaving the room and looking under the bed to make sure we hadn't left anything behind there was a sock under one bed and a chocolate wrapper under the other.

Room Tip: I stayed on the ground floor facing the carpark, if you have any issue with noise then facing the ca...

My wife and I stayed at the Sandymount Hotel for the Heineken Cup Semi-Final at the Aviva Stadium and were not disappointed with it's location. On arrival we found the reception staff very friendly and were given a room in the basement area, but we had only been in our room for about two minutes when a member of staff knocked at the door and said that there had been a cancellation and asked us if we would like an up-grande. We were then shown to a nice bright airy room on the first floor overlooking the front of the hotel, our room turned out to be triple with a large bathroom, slightly dated but more then comfortable for a weekend in Dublin.The breakfast was self-service and it was superb and it certainly set us up for the day, after breakfast on both days we didn't eat again until 8pm each evening.
The hotel is in a really nice area of the city, close to the Rugby Stadium and only about 200 metres from the DART railway station that takes you into the city centre. The airport bus also drops you off about a five minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel also put on entertainment for the thousands of rugby fans that were in town. I was supporting the losing team but I didn't hear the celebrating Ulster fans singing and didn't lose any sleep.
I would definitely consider this hotel for future visits to Dublin

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the Rugby Stadium chose this hotel
