“Great Value and very Family Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

I availed of the hotel's package deal of Bed & Breakfast, Evening Meal and tickets to Dublin zoo for 2 adults and 2 children all for 199 euros and it was such good value. We were given a very spacious room with 2 big double beds. The rooms are very modern and clean and have all the facilities a family would need. Bathroom is also very big. Dinner was a delicious 3 course meal in the hotel's modern bistro and breakfast was also excellent. Car park facilities are excellent and free. Staff were very nice and child friendly, even offering the children games and lego to play with in the evening after dinner so we could enjoy some quiet time. I would definitely stay at this lovely hotel again if going to Dublin and would highly recommend it to families traveling with young children.

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!
