“One of the best hotels I've been”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

I came to Dublin for a meeting at the Croke Park conference in the stadium, the Croke Park hotel is just in the front, so the position was perfect. Buses are also available not far from the hotel and it takes only some minutes to have a taxi, if you need it. Employees were kind and helpful and my rook was very nice. A good range of tea available in the room. One strange thing: there was no toilet brush n the bathroom. The breakfast lacks of choices for yoghurts and fruits, though there were a lot of things for the strong german/irish/english breakfasts.

Really enjoyed my short visit to Dublin's Croke Park Hotel. Perfect for me the business traveller who wants a relaxing night without the hustle and bustle of City Centre Dublin. Everything about the hotel was very good apart from the breakfast dining room which was a bit of a bun fight but this wouldn't stop me staying there again. Staff really nice and helpful.

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night on a sightseeing trip from England.
We took the no. 16 bus from the airport to Drumchondra, using a €2.90 bus ticket that allowed 90mins unlimited travel. This gave us time, to drop our bags off at the hotel and get back on the bus into dublin. You can catch the number 40 (10mins walk from hotel) to just past the hospital on the other side of the city to visit Kilmainham jail. Well worth a visit.
Our room was clean, modern and spacious. We ate in the hotel at the sideline bistro and food was really good, costing about €20 for a main. We also had a complimentary breakfast included, which was excellent and served till 10.30, meaning we could have a lie in! Hotel also has free wifi throughout and access to computers and printers, allowing us to book 10% off tickets to the Guinness Storehouse.
Really can't fault the hotel, it's a 15 minute walk into the centre, but we found getting around easy, using the local buses. Alternatively you can use the tourist buses €15 for a 2 day pass which does stop outside the hotel. For £70 a night including breakfast this hotel was excellent value for money, a real 4 star with great service from staff. Would definitely return.

I am a frequent business customer and consistently my experience in this hotel is uplifting because every employee you meet throughout the hotel greets you with a warm friendly smile. The hotel itself is presented in a warm modern style and the overall atmosphere is professional and warm. The food is excellent but a menu change would be welcome for us frequent visitors.

Room Tip: I used the conference facility only

We spent 3 nights at Croke Park Hotel and were very comfortable. Some nice touches such as hot towel on arrival to freshen up and we were asked if we would like some bottled water to take with us at check out for the journey home.
We had a deluxe room on the fourth floor, which comes with access to the executive lounge area with complementary drinks available as well as continental breakfast should you not want to use the restaurant.

I stayed for 3 nights at the Croke Park Hotel. The rooms are very good, excellent quality of sleep and good equipment in the rooms, including free and good WiFi, a ironing board and a trouser press, and a kettle to make your own tea or coffee. The toilet had both a bath tub and a shower. The neighborhood is quiet and the hotel bar is lively with a good selection of beer and food and a very nice atmosphere. The breakfast was very good, not the best I had in a 4 star hotel, but surely a 4 start breakfast. If I was the manager, I would change a couple of thing: the TV channel selection in the rooms is very limited, almost no foreign channels; the pressure of the water in the shower was a bit low, I could not have a really invigorating shower as I enjoy; the staff for the breakfast room is not as expedite and not as customer focused as the staff in the rest of the hotel.

The hotel is some 15 or 20 minutes away from the centre of Dublin, and I used a taxi to connect to the airport (20€ the trip to the hotel, 15€ the trip to the airport).

Moreover, if you are planning a conference, the Croke Park Statium, just across the street has very good rooms.

I can return to this hotel easily, its a good place to stay and a good value for money.

We stayed here on a Secret Escapes booking. we thought it was good value with a taxi ride, guinness storehouse entry and a free cocktail included but we were even more thrilled with the hotel when we finally got there.
Yes it is a little out the way, 15-20min walk into the centre but it walked off all the Guinness and food we consumed!
Rooms were excellent, all amenities included, the Sideline Bar was very good and not too pricey for a hotel. Breakfast was first class and the reception staff absolutely faultless!!!
Would definately recommend
