“Great hotel in a great city!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

I booked this hotel as it was a good and affordable option in Dublin, however was a little hesitant of the location being out of the city (kilmainham).
This ended up being my favourite part of the hotel! it was lovely walking each day to the bus stop to get into the city, and getting to see all the little houses and areas in Dublin.

The hotel itself was lovely! pretty standard for the hilton, the rooms were decently sized, shower was nice and the breakfast was good.
I had great service from the guy who checked us in and out, i think his name was James or something like that. He gave us a map, told us where to shop and gave us great advice as he was checking us in. thanks to him, our dublin adventures were so much better as we knew how to get around!

Travelling just after christmas time, i was a fan of the beautiful decorations in the lobby. one thing that was disappointing was that we were not notified of the changes in gym and pool opening times. unfortunately because of this we did not get to take advantage of this.

Breakfast was nothing special, but provided a good start to the day. I was travelling with a friend who is a celiac and could not have any gluten, and each day they provided her with gluten free bread. unfortunately they misadvised her about the other options she could eat, and she was sick for the rest of the day. easy mistake but should be looked into to make sure it doesnt happen again.

Overall i have very fond memories of this hotel, and would say that after travelling through Europe and staying in various Hiltons, it ranks in the top 3 for me!
i would not even hesitate to book this hotel and will definitely stay again when i plan to come back!

This is the 2nd time we spent a night in the Kilmainham Hilton. The hotel is very new and well organized. The large bathroom includes a bathtube with separate shower. The rooms are tidy and noiseless, even a possibility to open the windows, this is luxury, as we prefer the open window to climatisation. PC and printer are available in the reception area, so you can print out your boarding card. The hotel guarantees a reduced taxi fare to the airport, if you order the taxi at the reception desk. The hotel is located in a park like area, a cosy Italian/Irish restaurant and pub is just on the opposite side of the street, so you do not have to eat at the hotel. A large continental and English breakfast is offered in the morning, however it is not included in the room charge.If you walk to the city center it takes you about an hour.

Room Tip: Our room was located on the 2nd floor to the front side, we slept very well with open window, having...

The Hilton in Kilmainham is a great hotel with comfortable rooms, a very nice swimming pool and sauna(which you definetly should take advantage of). We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant and the experience was delightful, not to mention the food is amazing. All these for a great price.

Exactly what you would expect from a Hilton hotel. nothing more, nothing less. Room clean, water pressure very good, bed firm. TV has all the channels. breakfast variety good. didnt use the other facilities in the hotel.

great hotel in a great location. all the staff were excellent in every way. breakfast was fairly good but as I am very particular with cooked breakfast's it would be down to my own taste's and standards which are very high. evening meal was first class. i booked through the today fm deal for two nights and have to say this was excellent value and i will use this again and stay at the hilton in the future. really happy through out our stay and will happily stay there any time i am in Dublin in the future.

Booked a dinner,breakfast one night stay.. I arrived one hour earlier than my girlfriend and the staff wouldn't let me check in because she booked it in her name, even though I offered to pay cash they refused me. The dinner menu is awful with a small collection and the food is not nice either. I ended buying a Chinese takeaway a hour later across the road. Parking is 12 EURO even though it free across the road

Dear Sinead R
Thank you taking the time to leave a review on Tripadvisor.
I was sorry to see your partner encountered an issue on check in. Due to security reasons we are unable to check in a guest that has not been pre registered on the booking. We are happy to add another guest should we receive a call or email from the main guest on the confirmation.
Our parking is charged at 12 euro per 24 hours, parking is available on the main road free of charge during off peak times.

We hope to welcome you both back to the hotel
Kindest regards

We stayed here for two nights. Everthing was excellent. I cant think of anything negative. Staff were friendly and helpful and food was good. Location although not city centre, is served by a good bus service Taxi will cost about 10 euro to city centre.
