“Excellent Hotel near Dublin Airport.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Great location on M1. This hotel is really ideal if you wish to stay a night and then park your car for Dublin airport. Great deals available on stay and park. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Meals are of a high standard.Rooms are clean and well appointed. Minibus service available to airport. (Takes about 15 min) The hotel minibus will collect you at the end of your holiday. Jimmy, our driver, had checked flight arrival times and was waiting for us when we arrived back in Dublin. That's what I call good service!!!
Only one slight gripe. When we went down for breakfast a large group of about sixty/seventy young lads who were staying in hotel had just arrived in before us. This resulted in a long wait in line for the buffet breakfast. Though staff worked very hard to replenish items on the buffet, your meal was getting cold while you waited. I have have taken large groups of young people to hotels in the past and often hotels have gave us the same buffet meal as other guests, but in a separate function room. That might be a solution.That said, it was a minor problem and I would still give Citynorth 5star and would hope to return!

Hello dmillari12,

Thank-you for taking the time to submit a review.

I am glad to learn that you took advantage of one of Stay, Park & Fly offers, they do represent great value and it is always nice to begin any break with a short-break!

Regarding breakfast, we were particularly busy with groups over that time.

Hopefully we will get a chance to welcome you back soon.

Having been waylaid by Aer Lingus over the Atlantic and returning to Dublin on Flt EI 139 on June 15, 2014, we found the staff at City North the calm in our storm. Can't say enough about how we were treated in this crisis. Other Irish residents stayed there and couldn't say enough about the accommodations and great location! Patrick and his staff went above and beyond their duties to insure we were fed and bedded down in a timely manner. Can't thank them enough.

Room Tip: When we arrived after turning around over the Atlantic by Aer Lingus, there was no room that appeare...

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.
