“Great hotel”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Was brought to this hotel after a flight was cancelled. Every employee went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. I would highly recommend this hotel! From the front desk to all who served us in the restaurant, couldn't ask for better people. Never been to Ireland this was a flight stop. After meeting these people I want to go to back and see Ireland for myself.

We stayed at City North last week.end and I must say it was the most enjoyable, relaxing night away we have had in a long time. From the minute we set foot in the place we felt welcomed by the staff and the friendly atmosphere. Our room was so nice and the bed was super comfy! I had a late lunch in the bar which was very tasty and myself and husband had a 3 course meal in the restaurant later that night. The staff especially Eoin our waiter was very friendly and added to our experience. The food was delicious we didn't leave anything on our plate and struggled to eat the desert but it was just too good to leave behind! The breakfast in the morning was just as good as the food the night before, Buffet style and everything was so fresh. We really enjoyed our stay and I definitely will be recommending it and we will definitely be back again.

Had a meal with a group of work colleagues in this hotel on Wednesday 11th. June last. Service was slow, but for the fact that we had a lot of catching up to do with retired colleagues, when the breads arrives, they were quickly eaten. Orders were taken and after the starters service seem to dis-improve. Food was cold on cold plates and when asked to reheat vegetables, waiter took sop long that we had finished our mains when he arrived back with another cold dish. Our wine waiter had only "one hand" as she could only come with one bottle at a time! Those at my table felt they could not complain as we were guests of our former employer, but we will not be back at this hotel!

Hello RetireeOldcastle,

Thank-you for submitting your comments on Trip Advisor.

I am sorry to learn that our normally excellent service was not to the required standard when you were with us this week. We do take the matter very seriously and are looking at additional staff development and training.

I do hope you will give us the opportunity to prove to you that we can get it right.

I had booked a triple room to stay for one night in this hotel. On arrival the the check-in staff had indicated that i had booked a double with child which was not the case, i had booked a triple room for three adults. I din't mind having a double and a single bed in the room. On arrival to the room it was clear that the room was setup for two adults, two cups, two glasses two sets of towels and only one shampoo and one shower gel, which wasn't enough for 3 adults. There wasn't sufficient pillows either, there was only 3 in total for the double bed and one for the single bed, no spare at all which i thought strange for a 4 star hotel. The shower was a bit hit and miss in the morning, you couldn't adjust the shower head up or down, and the spray seemed to go everywhere. We had dinner in the restaurant the fine before which was good, no complaints there. Breakfast in the morning was ok, although we had to ask the staff that was setting up tables to bring us tea and coffee. Overall the staff were helpful and friendly especially the girl that served us our dinner and was on the breakfast tll in the morning.

The room is clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff has been friendly and helpful. We chose to eat at the restaurant in the hotel, the food was fabulous. The presentation of each dish was artfully done and the wait staff was attentive and very good at describing the dishes. Next time you come to Dublin I would recommend CityNorth Hotel.

Today’s breakfast was taken at the CityNorth Hotel in Gormanstown, near Balbriggan. The place was fairly buzzing at 8 am. Always a good sign. This repast takes the form of a typical hotel breakfast these days: you serve yourself to everything except tea or coffee. In previous rantings on this topic on Tripadvisor I have rarely found this arrangement to be satisfactory because I find that it is virtually impossible to have a hot breakfast with this set-up. So today I copped out and for main course decided to have kippers instead and it proved to be a happy choice. They were quite delicious and there were plenty of them. And the food was actually hot! I am very glad to see this palatial hotel doing well as it is a fine spacious building and there is ample parking and the staff are really very helpful and genuinely friendly. For €8.50 it has to be the best value meal of the day in this part of Ireland. Thank you CityNorth.

Room Tip: I did not sleep in the hotel, I just took my meals there.
