“Friendly, good location”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Stayed 1 night in the Sandymount while in Dublin for the Pro 12 rugby final. The hotel was in a great location, within easy walking distance of the ground (RDS). Also great for the Aviva and the DART train, which are just round the corner. It's a little way out from the centre of Dublin (although we did walk in, which is nice if you've got the time) but the surroundings are quiet and there is good parking available.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is a bit of a maze if you're in one of the rooms further out, could do with better signs in the halls. Room size is ok. Both the room and bathroom were a bit dated and could do with freshening up, but they were clean. Nice hotel overall

Sandymount is a pleasant, welcoming hotel close to the Dart for easy access to Dublin. Triple Room was clean and of a generous size and all staff were very friendly and welcoming to my young daughter. Breakfast was a hot and cold help yourself buffet with a great selection of cereals and pastries so ideal for every appetite. Would definitely recommend for a comfortable stay with easy access to Dublin.

We enjoyed a two night stay here last weekend. Very friendly & helpful staff. We were informed on check in restaurant/bar food times as it was late. We availed of bar food and it was delicious. We both really enjoyed the background music.. Our era .. !!!
Room was cosy & spotless. Only missing a table as we order breakfast to room and although it stated there was safe in the room .. We couldn't find one. But this didn't upset our stay.
Location perfect for Aviva stadium and close to sandymount strand
Taxis available outside the door
All in all a very pleasant stay and we would return again!

The hotel is a very strange mix of old and new. The outside of the building gives you the impression you will be staying in a traditional hotel, but the rooms are quite modern and soulless.

The corridor floors squeak like crazy and make the rooms very noisy. The views from the back of the hotel are on to a car park.

One of the rooms we hired was a triple room, which was absolutely huge!

The bar area and restaurant are very nice and the hotel serves a very nice breakfast.

Room Tip: The triple rooms are absolutely huge!

Clean hotel room and en suite. Basic room, functional but could do with a bit of colour or decor. Neutral to the point of characterless and sterile And more importantly this hotel could do with some serious sound proofing. I could hear every footstep on the floor above, not too mention footfall in the corridor.
The TV was on top of a wardrobe and the reception was very bad and kept losing both picture and sound.

Big double room, bathroom dated but clean, restaurant large enough to accommodate crowds, but still cosy, clean and comfortable, outside of the center but easy to access by DART, close to the foot ball arena

Room Tip: not around the parking spaces although they were not as noisy

I stayed here in a twin room for four nights in September of 2013! On arrival before check in the staff allowed us to check in early and made no fuss at all. The staff gave great tips on what to see and do and couldn't have done more for us.

The rooms are very clean and are some of the more spacious rooms that I have stayed in. The hotel itself is very quiet, I had a great nights sleep every night. We ate in the restaurant a few times which is fairly priced for some pretty good food.

By far the best part about the hotel is the great location to the dart station, making it really easy to get in and out of Dublin for cheap.

Definitely stay here for a relaxed and hassle free break!
