The Sheldon Park is in the middle of an industrial estate about four miles from the centre of Dublin. Doesn't sound promising does it? It's redeeming feature, though, is that the LUAS (tram) red line is only a few steps away, and will whisk you into central Dublin in about 20 minutes for a couple of Euros. This makes it worth considering if the central hotels are full or beyond your budget (we managed to get a reasonably-priced room at the Sheldon Park on the weekend of a sold-out rugby match at the Aviva Stadium, when the central hotels were quoting silly prices, or were full). The hotel itself is ultra-bland Best Western fare, but clean and comfortable enough with efficient and helpful staff. A few minor criticisms: we were allocated a smoking room (don't recall being offered a choice when booking); our double room on the second floor was in the roof, so the person on the window side of the bed would stand up into a dormer window and, if pitch-black in the middle of the night, walk straight into the wall of the dormer which came down to well below head height; turning on (either) basin tap required the use of both hands to prevent the tap just swizzling around; the choice of TV channels was limited in the extreme; although it was May the maid turned the radiator on full every morning (and opened the window!), so the first thing we did each evening was to turn the darned radiator off again. We used the bar once, and found it uninteresting but acceptable. Didn't bother with the restaurant (with much more interesting fare available in the central Dublin restaurants), and with no real effort made for vegetarians we didn't bother with breakfast either. All in all the Sheldon Park will not live long in the memory, but it does the job if it suits your budget and circumstances.
