“Great for a match at Aviva”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We stayed here for the Liverpool v Shamrock match last week.The staff were very nice,especially in reception,very helpful.The room was a family room,very clean.Would have loved if there was two double beds in a family room,maybe the next time we go back there will be.Breakfast was self service which was good but could have abit more variety with fruit and cereal options, but otherwise it was good.

Room Tip: Ask to have your room well aired out.Ours was abit stuffy when we went into it first.

Stayed in the sandmount recently and was very happy with my choice yet again. My partner and I have stayed several times and are always reluctant to go anywhere else as this place just ticks all the boxes for us, its affordable, close to city centre, rooms are modern quiet and clean, and the staff are always ao friendly. Highly recommend if in dublin!

We stayed at the Sandymount for 1 of our nights in Dublin and found it very accommodating.The staff was exceptional-very nice and really helpful with directions.The hotel is only a short walk from the train station which will get you anywhere you need to go.The rooms we had were old,but updated and very spacious and clean.The secure and free parking was nice and the breakfast was good.We'd recommend the Sandymount to friends for sure!

Checked in to a smelly, dull room. Requested a change and was denied. Told food was being served until 9.30 but was later told kitchen had closed even when we arrived before. Reluctantly served but got all our courses together.Our deal was to include tea and coffee but the waitress declined this. Slow dissatisfying service. Wouldn't recommend.

We were a group of friends who stayed in the hotel, Location was perfect. Rooms were bright and clean. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Parking is fee and secure. We ate in the Bar, we had the 8oz homemade burgar- it was so tender and tastie and the whiskey relish was a great touch to it. For dessert we had the cookie monster pot -this is heaven in a jar. It was by far one of the nicest desserts i have ever had. I am still deaming about it. It is a must have if you are staying in this hotel.So big compliments to the chefs.
