Reviewed 7 May 2012

Stayed at the Croke Park Hotel for a weekend break and was delighted with the quality of the hotel. Its located about a 20 minute walk to the city centre which is the only negative for me. We booked the hotel through ebookers and really got value for money. A taxi to College Green costs about €10. Bar food was very nice and good enough value. The complimentary parking was an added bonus. Area around the hotel is a bit dodgy but nothing to worry too much about just be sensible. The room we stayed in was very nice and modern and the hotel is very well maintained.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Dublin Zoo. Great hotel and really nice, welcoming staff. Made our 7 year old very welcome too. A number of things worth noting:
Free parking in a secure Car Park under hotel - This is a real bonus for Dublin.
O'Connell Street a 15 to 20 minute walk away so no need for taxis.
Hop-on Hop-Off Bust tour picks up at Hotel in any case.
Food in Restaurant was superb but, and my only gripe, service was slow. In fact I heard a number of customers comment on this and we ourselves left without having dessert as we had waited 20 minutes after completing our main course as no-one came to ask if we wanted one. The frustrating thing about this is that the waiting staff were really friendly and helpful when they got to you. If I were the chef here I would not be happy as the quality of the food is being forgotten amidst the poor service. I must emphasise however that that is my only gripe I would definitely return and would recommend to friends.

Writing the review from hotel room which is very well appointed. Flat screen tvs, coffee maker, stereo.... We did get upgraded to a suite though. :-)
Stayed an extra night because it's so nice. Staff couldn't be nicer, always willing to help. Food is great in Restaraunt too!

Having returned from a weekend in The Croke Park hotel, I can describe it in one word - fabulous. I booked my reservation through the efficient receptionist - Anne Marie. She really is a true ambassador for the Croke Park hotel as she was very courteous on the telephone. I have booked with Anne Marie many times and as always she is so delightful to speak with on the telephone. I also spoke with Sean on the telephone before we arrived and he too was so efficient and courteous on the telephone, advising me that he would ensure that everything would be to our satisfaction as soon as we would arrive. On arrival we were greeted by Ciara and Agnes in reception who ensured that our check-in was speedy and efficient. They presented us with hot towels in order to freshen up after our journey - what a lovely idea. A big thank you to these lovely receptionists. Of course our check-in would not have been complete if we weren't greeted by the ever popular Krishna who took great delight in offering to carry our luggage to the room. He portrayed such warm hospitality - another plus for the Croke Park hotel - as he was able to remember our names from our previous visits. Well done to Krishna!
Sean was also present to welcome us to the hotel and as we were returning guests he treated us to an upgrade on the executive floor - in fact the upgrade turned out to be a suite which was
unreal. We decided to have dinner in the evening which we hadn't booked for, but Tong - the receptionist in the restaurant advised us that she would ensure that we were able to dine there - and she did with little fuss. We were also greeted by Helen in the restaurant who was just finishing her day's work but still took the time to have a chat with us. The meal was really delicious and we were waited on hand and foot by the ever efficient Raj. He again was very courteous and always had a warm endearing smile for each one of his guests. Sean visited us in the restaurant, inviting our opinion on their up to date menu which we all agreed was excellent as far as choice and price went so well done to Sean and his team. Breakfast the following morning was delicious with such a wide variety of cereals, breads, pastries, fruit juices, fresh fruit and of course the Irish fry which was replenished every few minutes. Agnes - the receptionist who checked us in was on the reception desk in the restaurant and we were amazed to note that she was able to remember each of our room nos. Obviously the management have put a lot of effort into staff training. We were checked out by Tara who again greeted us with warm hospitality and our check-out was completed within seconds. Stephen, the concierge, validated our car-park tickets without any fuss and was very amicable in doing so. By the way the car-parking is complimentary - very rare in high-class hotels such as the Croke Park in Dublin these days! Krishna - of course - also wished us a safe onward journey with a pleasant smile. Sean also took the time to chat with us before we left the hotel. We assured him that our stay was a very memorable one and that we definitely would return. He was delighted to hear this and wished us a pleasant journey home - again with such warm hospitality. We really had a marvellous stay and yes it really is - the best in Dublin! Well done to the management of the Croke Park hotel and congratulations to all the staff.
