“Nice hotel. Lovely rooms! Was there for a wedding!”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Stayed at the portmarnock hotel for a wedding last weekend. It's a very nice hotel and good value for money. We were allowed to check in early free of charge and the staff were very polite. The rooms are very roomy and very well decorated. The breakfast is very good with a good selection. The service and hotel and room were all very good. My only niggle would be that there were no extra pillows and there were not enough towels for two people sharing. Would def recommend the portmarnock hotel for a stay and for a wedding reception.

Stayed on Easter Sunday night - one night for 2 people was only £74 including breakfast - room was spotless and comfortable - breakfast was buffet style but very fresh. Music in bar at night was great and prices of drinks very reasonable.

Location is super -- 9 euro in taxi to malahide and short car journey to Dublin -- or get taxi to malahide and dart to Connolly station.

This is a great hotel with really great staff - reception - bar- restaurant - breakfast - cleaners

Room Tip: I had a garden view -- it was good enough for me but there again I don't go to hotels to look ou...

Myself and 7 of my girlfriends stayed in the hotel early in December on a Groupon voucher deal. It was fantastic value. €59 for 2 people b&b and a bottle of Prosecco. We arrived on friday afternoon and booked a table in the restaurant for dinner at 7. The dinner was adequate, they got a few of the orders wrong but took some of the starters off the bill for the inconvenience. We then went to Gibneys of Malahide where there was a great atmosphere. When we came back to the hotel there was a sing-song in the residence bar which was great fun. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, the staff in the hotel especially the receptionists were very obliging. The rooms were well equipped with very comfortable beds and the sea views were exceptional. We golfed the next day, great course and will definitely come back. It is a great hotel to unwind and if the deal comes again we will be booking again.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are lovely.

Due to the last renovation this once old dated hotel has definitely won. Rooms a bit squeezy though but good and of temporate style. Wifi, Sky Sports and Golf Course around the corner. Should you be after a good round of Links Golf, this is a place worth the money. Staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurants plentiful at Malahide, just a 3 km ride by car.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a sea view...

We recently stayed at this hotel and the service was excellent. The views of the sea from the hotel rooms are beautiful and the food was top quality.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel it's peaceful and only 40 mins from Dublin

We stayed here for 6 days while on holiday (including St. Patty's Day). It is really close to the Dublin airport, Malahide, and good bus service into downtown Dublin. It is very picturesque on the Strand beach with the golf course.

The service was fantastic. Staying here only sets up other hotels for failure when it comes to the friendliness of the staff. I'm pretty sure the Irish are the most friendly people on earth, but the hotel staff were incredible. They took the initiative to see if we needed anything, especially for our 4 month old baby. We always enjoyed being greeted by Mary Jo at the breakfast buffet and one of the managers, Geraldine, was super helpful.

The full Irish breakfast is one of the best breakfast buffets in a hotel I've ever had. The Irish know how to start of the day with a hearty meal. It had scrambled eggs, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, several types of sausages and bacon, smoked salmon, cold meats and cheeses, fresh fruits, yogurt, toast, dried fruits, cereal/granola, lots of juices, and coffee/tea. It's a bit expensive for breakfast (~20 per person per day) but it was definitely worth ever penny. We ordered room service a few times and all that food was tasty. The fish and chips was a hearty portion and the seafood chowder is delicious.

There is ample parking if you are renting a car. There are a few restaurants and mini grocery stores in walking distance. You can take a quick bus ride into Malahide for some sightseeing, shopping, and good food options.
