My husband and I booked this hotel due to location ( being near to my family) we were staying the weekend to attend a family celebration. The hotel was exceptional in quality, friendliness, cleanliness, and comfort. I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. Staff exceedingly helpful, welcoming and friendly.

We chose to stay at the hotel as it was within easy reach of the ferry port for an early check-in there the following morning. We couldn't have had a warmer welcome or been made to feel more special even though it was a flying visit.

We stayed at the Croke Park for our first night in Ireland. We were very jet-lagged and exhausted. The staff was very friendly and tried to be helpful, but they seemed quite understaffed, as we had to wait quite a while both at the check in desk and for service in the bar. The room was nice and fairly spacious; everything was clean and as expected. Our only issue was the heating, which took so long to adjust that we concluded it was not working at all - only to discover ourselves wildly overheated at about 3am after it apparently kicked in. We did ask at the desk about the heat (after we'd been in the room for about 2 hours) but their only advice was to wait. Otherwise the hotel was quite serviceable, if boring. It's on the edge of town not near much of anything but the stadium. The decor and amenities were unremarkable and the menu options at both dinner and breakfast were adequate but uninteresting.

We stayed in this hotel over the weekend we booked directly with the Hotel and decided on the discover Dublin rate of 129euro this included 2 day pass on the hop on hop off bus, 3pm check out full Irish breakfast a complimentary drink each and free parking. We upgraded to the fourth floor, on this floor you have access to a kitchen/ sitting area with newspapers coffee tea, biscuits juice etc. There is an ice making machine on this floor also.
If you decide on the room only rate you can upgrade when you arrive to the hotel.You can enjoy a contintental brekfast here and help yourself, although we did not have the breakfast here we could see it was very good and we were impressed with it.
We enjoyed breakfast downstairs, it is a self service fare with plenty of everything. Lovely waiting staff with happy friendly faces, nothing is too much trouble.
Overall the Hotel is a great location to see Dublin, the green hop on hop off bus picks you up outside the door.
A taxi from Grafton St area cost us 12 euro.
Would I return, definately yes, I would highly recommend this hotel to family & friends. Keep up the good work and smiley faces.

Easily the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Clean, comfortable, good food, excellent staff, and only a ten minute walk from city centre. Brilliant. Booked it through Expedia and the rates were not expensive either. Wouldnt even consider staying anywhere else now when I visit Dublin.

We really enjoyed Croak Park. The rooms are great even by American standards. The breakfast was excellent and cheaper if you bought it at check-in. Efficient staff and concierge. We particularly liked it's comfort while we got over jetlag.

It is located on the north side of the River. EASY BUS ride for €2.60 from the airport on bus 16. Get off at Quinn's pub, stop 47. The hotel is two blocks east and 2 short blocks south at the southwestern corner of the Croak Park stadium.

5 block walk to the start of the heart of town, or back to the bus to center.
Quiet neighborhood unless there is a match on.

Room Tip: The further west, back into the hotel, the quieter.

This hotel is faultless. I took my fiancé here for his birthday, on arrival at 10pm we were greeted by a young man at the desk who was very helpful and answered any questions we had. The only half bad comment is the area surrounding the hotel isn't that great but a ten minute walk and you're in the centre of Dublin, O'Connell street.
