“Our Perfect Day in a Perfect Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

When we 1st booked this hotel we wanted somewhere close to the City Centre, but quiet as well, we also wanted a Hotel that could accomodate a wedding and give us the perfect day and also a comfortable stay as we were there for 5 nights. As we live in Wales all the booking and setting up was basically done by e-mail and phone calls, Did this work out? It did. What an amazing time we had. The Hotel was everything we wanted, relaxing, friendly, clean and as for the wedding, we had our perfect day. The room set up was amazing, the food was excellent and the staff from reception to bar to kitchen were brilliant. I want to mention a few names. Marie and gang that fed us for Breakfast and did an amazing job looking after us for the wedding. Daniel and Syivia that looked after us in the bar and also the girls on reception especially Siobhain. And a BIG thank you to all the other staff that worked in the back ground that we never saw and the people that I´ve forgotten to mention. Last but not least Gail. I must have driven her mad with all the phone calls and e-mails. But she helped organise our perfect day. Regardless of the reason for travelling to Dublin. This is the hotel that I think will cater for you time in Dublin. 5 days that my wife and I will always remember and for All The Right Reasons. Thank You Sandymount Hotel

Dear Guest,

Thank you for such a glowing review. It is a great boost to my staff when their efforts are recognised.

We recently had a couple back in the hotel where they spent their honeymoon 50 years ago. Wishing you both a similar long and happy married life together.

With kind regards,

John Loughran

Made to feel really welcome by reception staff. The room was comfortable and spotless providing all we required. The restaurant for breakfast was very attractive and the breakfast itself was good. Unfortunately wedding guests on our floor kept us awake singing and shouting from 2.00am until 5.00 am. The night manager did his best but really the guests were totally unreasonable and had drunk too much. I have to say that the following morning the reception staff were very apologetic and dealt with our complaints in a very professional manner. As a result I would think that our unfortunate experience was a one off and I would return to this hotel, but maybe ask for a quiet room. It is a family run hotel and they really do aim to please their guests .

Room Tip: Ask to be kept apart from any wedding party guests.

Dear Debbie,

Thank you for your review. I apologise for the disturbance. We took a decision this week not to take any more weddings as they are not conducive to the quiet family hotel ambiance.

With kind regards,

I always stay in The Sandymount when in Dublin. Its perfect quiet location and the staff are very helpful, especially Beatrice at reception. The rooms are good and the Food is excellent in the bar. Someday I hope to stay for a long weekend for a leisure not just work. The hotel is right next door ti the Aviva stadium, so tying a match to the trip would be excellent.

7 week stay on business. Couldnt have asked for better. Extremely helpful staff. Always very friendly. Rooms kept clean. Good food. Nothing was too much trouble. No hesitation in recommending this hotel for business or leisure. In fact I'm going back on a leisure trip next month.

This hotel is just two DART stops from central Dublin, but in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood with restaurants and shops within walking distance. Might be noisier when event going on at Aviva Stadium. One wonderful thing was that they let us check in early, about 10 a.m. We were totally jet lagged as it was about 2 a.m. in California and we were able to go to sleep rather than waiting till check in time at 3 p.m. The rooms are a little spartan but comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Myself and my wife have just come back from a long weekend at the Sandymount where we had a great time.The hotel was spot on, staff were really helpful and polite.
We arrived at the hotel at about 11am and were checked into a room by 12 (check in was supposed to be 2pm). Rooms were very clean and decent size for the two of us but didn't really stay in there too much as we wanted to see the sights, bathroom could maybe have a little upgrade but not an issue to us at all. Location was good, Landsdown road dart is about 5 min walk if that and bus routes into the center is about 10. Food at the hotel was great and Guinness went down well too! We went on a bed and breakfast board and were really impressed with it, cup was always getting topped up with coffee when empty and all food was nice and fresh. I would recommend this hotel to friends and would happily stay here again, thank you
