“Wonderful hotel, a gem!”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

A beautiful hotel in a great location! We stayed for two nights, the room was spotlessly clean, spacious and bright with a lovely view of the park and a glimpse of the Dublin mountains. It got extremely warm at night despite the air conditioning but other than that was very comfortable.The bar is lovely and relaxing with great food at a reasonable price. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, particularly at reception. It looses a point because of difficulty with booking the rooms. We had to make two separate online bookings for the two days to accommodate the planned arrival of other members of our party on the second day of our stay as several attempts to make the reservation by phone failed and for the €10 a night parking fee. Overall though it was great value and a fantastic stay!

Stayed here for one night, for an outing to the theatre. It always seemed out of the price range of most average hotels in the area. But at 115 Euro it could not be passed. This is a very good hotel, rooms are really nice. Great furnishings and very quiet. Lovely views over Ballsbridge and Herbert Park.

Check in was hassle free, with friendly staff. There's an underground car park, for 10 Euro per night.

There is not kettle in the room, you can order tea or coffee for two for 3.50. There's a mini bar aswell with to be expected sky high prices.

If we got the hotel at this price we'd stay again. The bar and restaurant area was very quiet, late Friday evening and only around five people there. It seems deserted, which might explain the good value.

Despite that this is a very good hotel, with great staff and a real feeling of comfort.

We had another over night in Dublin last week and stayed at the Herbert Park. A king size double bed in a large well appointed room for 135 euros INCLUDING a comp bottle of Preseco ( usually 35 euros) full Irish breakfast and the free overnight parking (usually about 10 euros)

Great value and a good service. The modern contemporary design is a little cold but overall an excellent property set in the beautiful Herbert Park. Always make sure you book on a package which is great value to include the parking and breakfast!!

Room Tip: Always book a package to get the best value

This was my third stay and once again it was great. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. We asked for extra bedding for a cot and it arrived within 5 mins. Rooms, as always were clean and spacious. We had a package this time which included free parking. This is the only down side to the hotel ie you have to pay for overnight parking. The location is very handy. The bus takes you into town in 10 mins. The park next door is great, especially when the weather is good. Breakfast had a great variety of hot and cold food. A great hotel as always.

I had a bad experience from this hotel before I even stayed there. We have two children, (2+4) and I booked a triple room and a roll out bed for my 2 year old. The hotel wanted €30 extra per night for the roll out. I have stayed in many hotels and have NEVER paid extra for a roll out bed. They then suggested that they would give me a interconnecting room at a extra cost of €130 per night! I just booked the triple online and no extra bed and we would sorted something out. Arrived and they had give me a Double room with a roll out bed and called it a triple! Not going to bore you with the details but we got no satisfaction from the desk or from the manager. Our room was €145 per night. No breakfast. You have to pay €10 per night for parking. There is NO tea or coffee in your room. We had a family reunion for the two days and I had rand the evening before to TRY and book a table for food and drinks for 10 adults and 5 children. They receptionist said that she'd check and ring back. They didn't ring until after linch the following day by which time we booked else where. Very disappointed with the whole experience. We always stay in a different hotel in Dublin and looks like we will be heading back the next visit where families ARE welcome and you don't have to pay for every little option. Also found out that my Brother in law paid €90 for same room without roll out. Won't be back.

This was my 4th stay at the Herbert Park & I just love it. Perfect location close to dundrum and city centre for shopping. Ive stopped checking other hotels rates as Herbert park has everything. Great parking, clean spacious well appointed rooms with wifi. Its luxury at affordable prices. The park next door is such a wonderful facility and parkview rooms are so lovely. Special mention to Saddam & Sunita who looked after us very well and were so kind to our children and Egle who looked after us at checkout and helped us book our next trip.

This was the perfect hotel for a reunion with college girlfriends - great location, comfy rooms, beautiful foyer, pleasant staff. All we missed was the kettle for the early morning cuppa...
(Foyer bar coffee was really good quality and delicious, something it is getting harder to find).

Room Tip: We had one room at the front and one room at the back, first floor, both were good.
