“Very friendly staff and a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

The Sandymount Hotel staff were incredibly helpful to us during our stay - facilitating an early check-in, advising about travel to the airport & help regarding future bookings. The hotel layout is slightly quirky as there are many buildings connected together and, being older, there is a certain amount of noise along and between floors - this only bothered us a little on our first night before we became used to it. The location within walking distance of Sandymount and Donnybrook was brilliant in terms of dinner options

Room Tip: We had one of the 2 sets of interconnecting rooms, which have very little street noise. My brother w...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.

The quirky layout is due to adapting Victorian building which we feel adds to the charm of the hotel. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to Dublin.

With kind regards,

Just returned after being away for a while and delighted to see some rooms recently done up and much improved free internet connection provided. Reception staff - Beatrice, Steph, and all the others are so welcoming and helpful. Keep up the good work.

I stayed at the Sandymount Hotel with my husband and young daughter on Friday 17 January. The Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect for us with tea and coffee making facilities and very comfortable beds. We went into the bar for a meal, which was so delicious and the portions were large, which pleased my husband! The waitress who looked after us was so friendly and helpful. We were going to a wedding Saturday and it was raining heavily and, without us requesting it, one of the receptionists gave us a large golf brolly. That brolly saved us from getting soaked! That was so kind and thoughtful - it's these little touches that makes a stay special and makes the Sandymount Hotel stand out for us. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. Would love chance to stay here again when back in Ireland.

We would be very happy when next in Ireland, to stay again in this lovely, friendly hotel where staff care about their guests.

This family run hotel offers excellent value in the lovely area of Dublin 4. Particularly well situated for the Aviva stadium and RDS it is also close to the DART making it a serious choice for central Dublin.

We were two couples and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean and the breakfast very good. The staff are pleasant and exceptionally helpful. The only downside is a fairly small TV.

I can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

I have attached some photographs.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review.

Your photos are really excellent. We should maybe consider employing you for our next brochure!

A number of rooms do have smaller TV’s, and as these are renovated we will be replacing with larger flat screen.

Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to your next visit.

Just returned from a lovely overnight stay at the Sandymount Hotel. Check-in was smooth and the staff were so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. After check-in my sister who had come to meet us for lunch decided she would also like to stay. We were switched from a triple to quadruple room without any difficulty and this was quite spacious easily accommodating 3 adults & 1 teenager. The bathroom was a little dated but more than adequate with plenty of hot water & all toiletries provided. There was an iron & ironing board, safe and a foldaway room service table in the room. The hotel was a little way out from the City Centre but easily reached by DART and the station is a few minutes walk from away. We had a peaceful night's sleep on the firm beds. Good selection for both cooked & continental breakfast which we paid for separately although the only egg option was fried. Lunch was also very tasty even if the selection a little limited - bagels/wraps, omelette, burgers, fish & chips but having said that the options for bagels/wraps was impressive. Think gourmet fillings. The staff were also very knowledgeable about things to do in Dublin. Overall we were impressed with the Sandymount and would definitely return.

Teachers and students from our school (Kinsale Community School) stayed in the Sandymount hotel for the Young Scientist competition. We had a very enjoyable stay in the hotel. The staff were ever friendly, good food that was student friendly priced. I would 100% recommended this hotel to schools that are attending the Young Scientist competition and we will definitely be going back in Jan 2015. S. Holly
