Our touring group of 45 stayed for 3 nights and a smaller spinoff group extended an additional 2 days before connecting to a river cruise. The only complaint is the WiFi charge. There is limited free access at a very slow speed. For 30 Euro, it can be upgraded to a "fast" connection for several days. It was hit or miss and not that fast when you could get it. Other than that, the room was great, staff very efficient, friendly, and helpful. The breakfasts were very good with seating to enjoy the water view. It's an easy walk into town for restaurants and to catch the train into Dublin, which many of us did. It is only a 20 minute ride to the airport, and at 4am no traffic. We had some nice walks along the water and into town. We ate in 3 restaurants (Nautalis, Giovanni's, and That's Amore - check out those reviews for good places to eat). Be sure to go to the Malahide Castle (also reviewed), which is about a 15-20 minute very pleasant walk. Overall, a super hotel used by families for reunions and wedding receptions. I would have given it 5 Stars if it had better & free internet. Who really charges for that now!?!
