“A very Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

Hotel has been recently renovated and I have to say it is to a high standard. I stayed in a deluxe room which was very nice, clean, modern and spacious. The bathroom was great with separate bath and shower. My only complaint is there was no iron or ironing board in the room, that said when I asked reception they did send one to the room, but I did have to wait half an hour for it !
No mini bar in the room, but there is a small fridge if you want to put your drinks in it. Breakfast was good, however I was a little surprised that they only offered scrambled egg and no other choice. Views from the room of the golf course and the sea were amazing, even on a wet day !

Stayed there 3 days and nights and have just returned, it is for me simply very good indeed, the rooms are first class ,tidy and clean with all that is required. We got the reduced price and for 99 euro for two bed and breakfast I was delighted with that . It is used by the ROI national football team so standard would need to be high. Situated in a wonderful spot with a beach that goes on and on. Well impressed with the staff and the events on at night, its a 5 from me, loved the place and atmosphere.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are there but remember to ask.

I stayed at the Portmarnock hotel near Dublin last Saturday as it was for a family wedding party we were given a room rate of euros 99, instead of 129, but unfortunately I did not check the invoice until the next day to find I had been charged the higher rate. I reported this via email and they have written back to say the charge of 129 is correct.
I have spoken to 5 other member of my family to find that their had all paid the Euro 99 rate although they originally invoiced my bother-in-law the 129 rate, but he brought it to their attention before making a payment to get it corrected.
So pay attention to their invoice before you leave.

Room Tip: Don't go unless you.re crazy about golf. Big disappointment no swimming pool and poor gym

Went to hotel for my sons wedding and have to say it was fabulous staff were absolutely brilliant very helpful and friendly especially Guido who was always on hand and charming and courteous, all the staff were superb and I can't rate the food high enough, definitely going back there in the future even though the Irish football team were at the hotel at the same time we were treated exactly the same, it was a great setting for the wedding reception and the weather was perfect and everyone commented how good the hotel was.

A very nice hotel made into an extremely good hotel by the quality of its staff. Unfailingly courteous at all times. Generally one can expect to meet 2 or 3 exceptional members of staff but on this trip I found everyone to be of a similar 5 star quality.
The location is lovely with a lovely beach and fantastic golf courses with both Dublin and Malahide within easy reach.
If I had to be picky I would say the quality of the bathroom lighting was poor.

Room Tip: Outward facing rooms are better than courtyard.
