“Traveling with a group of 80”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

This hotel was able to manage a large group of us on a cultural tour. I was in a single room, downstairs, small by American standards, but clean and otherwise acceptable. Accommodation varied amongst our group. We were provided a cereal, toast, juice and coffee for our breakfast which was adequate- toaster did not work well so it took a while to get people through. The staff is commended on their patience in dealing with a large group in a helpful manner. I will return when I make my next trip.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review. We changed our toaster in the past couple of days, which hopefully will speed up the process. We look forward to your return on your next Irish trip.

With kind regards,

very nice people, good service, vey kind reception and good food. Room clean and cleaning every day. When we will return to Dublin we will go to the Sandymount. One minor point the hotel lies about 20 minutes cycling from the center of the city. Onthe other is is very quiet.

Thank you for your kind review. I am not sure which route you took to the centre of the city, which is approximately 2.5kms. We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.

Two night business stay with use of conference rooms on the second day. First day meetings were at the Aviva Stadium. I was lucky and got one of the top floor rooms within the main block, which overlooked the car park at the rear. No disturbance from other residents. Bed was comfy and there was enough facilities such as iron, hairdryer etc. Could have had more power sockets for charging phones and laptops. Free Wi-Fi was good. Bathroom OK.
Did not have breakfast but had bar meal on first evening which was excellent value and good portions. Conference lunch was well presented too.
I can understand what the other reviews say about the mixed standards of rooms from comments from some in our group, however my room was fine and the service very good.

I stayed in the Sandymount Hotel for 4 nights from May 13th to May 17th and the pleasant and friendly staff helped to make it a very enjoyable stay. While rooms are not luxurious they are more than satisfactory with comfortable bed, tea making and free Wifi access ( get Code from Reception) and very clean. Bar food is very good and service excellent. For its location in Dublin 4 it is one of the best value hotels.

We spent one night to go for an interview in the british embassy, we went to a nearby beach. It was satisfactory overall and would return if doing anything around Dublin4. Easy check in and check out. Thanks to everybody @ reception and service.

Good location, on outskirts of Dublin in a nice area.

Reasonable price, and included a good-sized room, excellent shower, choice of toiletries, iron etc

Both breakfast & evening meal good and tasty. Evening meal very rapid serving!

All staff friendly and helpful, particularly Beatrice on reception.

Definitely worth a return visit.

Room Tip: Rooms away from main corridors look to be best

This was my 2nd visit to Sandymount Hotel in 6 months.
This hotel is approx a 20 min brisk walk to city centre but is served by the" Dart" which is the commuter train service and takes about 5 mins to city centre.
The hotel is a series of buildings and this accounts for the number of corridors at different levels as you get to your room. It is both quaint and modern but above all it is friendly and clean..
Breakfast is buffet and is very good and again friendly staff are there to assist with anything you require.
Overall it is a good hotel and great value and would recommend.
It is about 5 minutes walk from the very attractive village of Sandymount
