“Great Business Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2010

Classic Hilton style hotel just outside the City Centre, beside the historic jail in Dublin.
Rooms neat and clean.

Free internet access, UK Hiltons take note!!

Staff top class, really helpful when the volcano disrupted the flights recently, nothing was to much hassle.

Good gym and pool (although more for lounging about rather than swimming), Restaurant not bad but a little limited in choice. Breakfast as usual, great.

Ideal for business travellers who don't want to pay City Centre prices, 5 min walk to Luas

Stay on a regular basis with work, but would be great for City break

We stayed here for a weekend as a family of 5 (2 adults & 3 kids) and the whole experience was fantastic. Firstly I'd echo what most people have said about the staff. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and couldn't do enough. The rooms were spotless, the food was excellent and the leisure facilities were great. The deal we got was tremendous value for money, we've spent much more on SuperValu breaks in hotels not half as good as this one. We were very sorry to have to leave and will definitely be returning here in the future. A gem.

This is a great hotel! And, I want to thank my fellow Trip Advisor colleagues for their comments on this hotel as it was part of our decision to stay here. We spent 6 nights in two rooms (adjoining) with our teenage children (18 & 15). SO, you would think after 6 nights in two rooms you would find a complaint or two? NONE. What a truly great hotel. The rooms were American sized with a separate shower stall AND a deep soaking tub. One room for my wife and I had a true queen size bed which they classify as a Double room and two twin beds in the other room. Each room had a flat screen TV with mostly BBC, Sky and other English channels, complimentary bottled waters which were generously replenished each night, complimentary in-room coffee with biscuits, sitting chair and air conditioning and heat. Our breakfast was included which was European buffet ample, plentiful in a very nice setting. And lastly, the location is great if you’re on holiday: the #79 & #68 bus stop right in front of the hotel. The LUAS Red line Suir Road station is a 7 minute walk; the buses into to City Centre are two blocks walk, very close. AND there is the Patriots Pub right across the street if you want an authentic Irish Pub to down a few pints in and eat bangers & mash. I’ve traveled extensively in Europe and I must say this is one of the top 3 hotels I have stayed in. The staff is great. ENJOY! Oh, and the SPA pictures do not do it justice. Really cool and included in the rate.

We had booked a room for three nights including breakfast. The room we got was at the fifth (of five) floor and had a large ceiling and a windows from the floor to the ceiling.

The bed was really comfortable with a warm blanket (something you need in Ireland in March). The bathroom was i good condition and spacious. The only thing that could have been solved better is the shower screen. There is no curtain, but a glass partition half the length of the tub that not really keeps the water from flooding the floor of the bathroom.

The staff at the hotel was really nice and the service was good. We asked for buses to the city center and got an exact description how to get to the next bus stop and which line to catch.

We had dinner in the bar twice - it's no bargain, but the food is good quality. Try the burger with brie cheese!

The breakfast is a buffet, where you can choose between full Irish or continental breakfast.

All in all the stay was really nice, unfortunately at the last night some local girl had a party for her 21st birthday in one of the function rooms - this wouldn't have bothered us, but she and all of her friends seemed to have their rooms at the same floor we did. They really made quite a racket in the hallway for the best part of the night.

If you go to Dublin, the Hilton Kilmainham is a good alternative to hotels at the city center. You get to the center by bus in ten minutes - if you choose to walk it's 30 minutes. Be aware, that the hotel charges you 10,- EUR for using the underground parking garage per night.

Me and my fiance stayed in this hotel from friday 26th feb 2010 till monday 1st march 2010, everything was amazing from the staff to the pool. check in was smooth and easy and they even let us check in early at 9am! (when normal check in is not untill 3pm) the rooms are massive with a large bathroom with a shower over bath the rooms are very modern with large windows, we loved the hotel so much we have booked to go back in Decemeber. The only thing that was a little annoying was the staff in the bar did not speak very good english and were rather slow at taking orders for food. We loved Dublin!! My boyfriend is Irish and it was the first time he had been back in 12 years now with this hotel just round the coner i think we will be back a lot more!!!
