I booked a One Night Stay at the Pillo Hotel for last Sunday. While it wasn't cheap compared to other places I stayed in the past year or so, there are a couple of features that make this place special. First: I found my single room to be very stylish, roomy and comfortable. I normally don't comment on TV's as I don't tend to watch must Television on hotel breaks but the TV Set in room was an up to the minute HD Type with a wonderful reception and a host of other good features. Second: On the Monday morning I enjoyed a Swim in the Hotel's leisure, which is probably the best swimming pool I have ever used in all the Hotels I have ever been in to date. It is large and has some alcoves and extra features not experienced in other places. I was also satisfied with the secure car parking arrangements and Safety deposit box. Tips for improvement: Breakfast Food (being OK instead of great) and Bar Service (which was slow on Sunday evening). Otherwise a sort but enjoyable stay at the Pillo Hotel, Ashbourne.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of Hotel affording fine view of the Countryside and may be a little quiter there t...

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding nearby.
Perfect place to stop over, I only wish we'd stayed longer to enjoy the facilities available.
Beautiful, well proportioned rooms. Clean and well stocked with everything you might need, e.g. Safe, iron and ironing board, hairdryer etc
Staff were professional and attentive both on reception and in the restaurant.
Breakfast on both mornings was great. Good selection of cereals, pastries, cold meats and fresh fruit.
I only wish I'd remembered about the fitness suite and had brought my swimming gear!
Would definitely recommend for both business and pleasure.

No issues comfortable. Rather isolated location but quiet location. Secure car parking in operation. Bar is okay. Breakfast was not the best Irish breakfast I've had but was satisfactory. In summary if in location it is acceptable

You want a good, working, functional hotel room, without breaking the bank. Well then, this is it.
Biggish, new, 'green' rooms - you need the room key to get electricity to the room. When you leave and take the key with you, you cut off the electric- neat and saves the earth, too.
The hotel is a short hop by car or bus from Dublin and close to all sorts of family attractions. Ashbourne town is close by with a myriad of shops, pubs and restaurants. The hotel too has a fine restaurant and lounge.
The place has a great pool, an extensive gym and a spa for those needing spoilt or pampered.
I mean, what's not to like?
The staff are friendly and helpful very accommodating.
If you're looking for the same kind of hotel nearer to or in central Dublin, you'll end up spending the earth. The Pillo is way more wallet friendly.
It's also great for an overnight if you have a flight from the airport. You can park and grab a bus to it just outside the front gate. Everyone is catered for.

As a family of five we stayed here again. It was our second visit in two years. Loved it. Rooms were big. We had two rooms. There was four adults and one child. Could not fault the rooms. We had dinner twice in the hotel. Loved the food. Only thing was the bar. Very very slow at serving drinks. You could be waiting up to ten minutes to get a drink, even though there was loads of staff. That's the only bad thing I could say about the hotel. My six year old loved the kids club. She made loads of friends which is what you want for your kids. The family games in the evening are great. You get to spend time with your little ones as well as having a good time yourself. Loved swimming and having fun in the hotel swimming pool. We will be back

Room Tip: Rooms n they'll floor are bigger and have view of tayto park at the front of the hotel
