We booked through LivingSocial Voucher for a 50th birthday treat. Didn't know what to expect and was a bit apprehensive since none of us all 6 ladies been to Ireland before. We didn't want to disappoint the birthday celebrant either. Well, we were pleasantly surprised how amazing, lovely, friendly and welcoming this hotel was. Very clean and spacious bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Food was great and the staff were very helpful and were always smiling, which made our stay more enjoyable.
Thank you to all the staff at The Bracken Court Hotel. We all had such a lovely time during our stay. Will highly recommend to anyone.
Keep up the good work and more power to you!

Room Tip: Room 310 is massive.

Booked through LivingSocial and was unsure what to expect, but we were extremely pleasantly surprised! The hotel is around a 2min walk from a very nice beach and it has a friendly, welcoming vibe.
The room was perfect and very spacious.
The high point by far though was the staff, they were very attentive, friendly, helpful and created a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere! They should all be commended! Our waitress at dinner went out of her way to provide a wine to my tasting and I really appreciated that.
The breakfast was lovely too.
The only downside was the heating which isn't individually controlled and my boyfriend found it very warm at night.
Overall lovely stay, will definitely be back!

We stayed here on a LivingSocial voucher in February. Check-in was hassle-free; the receptionist was friendly and efficient. Our room was ready on arrival, and we went straight up. The room was right opposite the door to our corridor, which normally I dread (light sleeper). However, this didn't bother me over our two night stay.
The room itself was nicely decorated and the bed was comfy. We had a WiFi connection, and the TV worked perfectly. One little niggle was that the hot water in the shower took a little while to get warm, which worried me. The good news is that once it heated up it stayed at a constant temperature, and there was no shortage of it. The water pressure was good too. Be warned, the hotel doors do not fully close under their own steam. We accidentally spent a night with the door not fully closed. Luckily we had no incidents, but it is one to watch for. I wouldn't consider it a problem,or something the hotel needs to fix, just a pointer to others for security purposes as a lot of hotel doors close by their own momentum and it is easy to forget to check.
Breakfast was quite impressive. There was a good variety of pastries, cereals, yogurts, and dried and fresh fruits. The usual fruit juices were accompanied by a big jug of homemade smoothie-I didn't try it, but it was a nice touch. Everything was clearly labelled, and there were plenty of bowls etc. The cooked breakfast was buffet; the chefs on both mornings were friendly and cheery, as were the waiting staff.
We had dinner in the hotel bar on one evening, this meal was included in our voucher. We shared a starter, which was pork belly ribs. I'd happily return just for those alone! They were amazing! The main courses were delicious, and there was so much that we had to pass on dessert. We had a nice bottle of red wine to wash it all down with.
The hotel was a great base for exploring; we did some clay-pigeon shooting and took a trip to Skerries and Malahide. We thought the hotel itself was fabulous, but let down slightly by the town. Still, there are plenty of activities in the area, and it is only a couple of minutes walk from the DART station.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. All the staff were friendly, the food tasty and plentiful, and the hotel itself decorated nicely. It was a lovely, relaxing couple of days. As I always like to be out and about exploring, it is a credit to the hotel that I was perfectly happy to stay in and relax. Both of us agreed that we would happily return. It was excellent value for money, and with free car parking and DART services it makes a great base. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for the Wales-Ireland rugby international in February as Dublin hotels were too expensive. Although Balbriggan is a pretty unremarkable seaside town the Bracken Court provided us with a comfortable base for the weekend. It does some great deals; we paid just 173 euros for a double room for 3 nights. The food was very good and there was live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. The bar is lively and charges reasonable prices comparable with local pubs. We'd certainly stay here again.

We got this deal on LivingSocial at a very good price so I decided to upgrade as it was for my husbands birthday. WOW!! Hands down the nicest hotel room we have ever been in. We had a suite which was an extra €100 but Oh so worth every penny. They also had some balloons placed in the room for his birthday, this was a nice touch and surprise.

The bathroom was amazing and HUGE!!!!! There was also a separate living room with flat screen TV. The king bed was in the middle of the room against a fake wall, very stylish!

We had our meal, which was part of our deal, on the Saturday night, it was delish. They were very busy but gave us a complementary sorbet between our starter and main course while we waited.

The staff all over the hotel were so friendly and helpful, they couldn't do enough for us. Unfortunately they could do nothing about the lack of Wifi in our room. We were told they had a problem with Wifi on our side of the hotel but we could use the hotel computers if we needed to. My husband was none to happy with this as he couldn't use his ipad or iphone for internet.

We had our breakfast delivered to our room on the first morning and it wasn't good at all. There wasn't very much and they forgot nearly half of everything we ordered. After ringing down to reception the kind lady apologised and had a young man come back up with the remainder of our breakfast. This all cost an extra €8. The second morning we went down to the restaurant and it was sooooo much better, so I would recommend not using the breakfast room service.

Apart from the Wifi and the breakfast we had the most wonderful relaxing stay and I never wanted to come home :) We will be back, soon hopefully :)

Room Tip: If you want Wifi ask at reception before they put you in your room as one side of the hotel can't get it or has really poor signal.
