Stayed in the Marriott for a "relaxing" weekend with my partner - thought the hotel was lovely. Really clean, modern and comfortable. Staff were friendly and we when we asked for a late checkout we were given 2 hours which was great.
Used it as a base to explore Meath - spent some time in Slane, Newgrange etc. For those travelling from abroad wouldn't recommend it as a hotel to use for Dublin stay as it is at least 30-40 minutes journey from Dublin (includes Motorway journey).
Ate in La Bucca Italian Restaurant, Ashbourne, on the Saturday evening which was lovely - would definitely recommend that you try it.
High points: Cleanliness, friendly staff, comfortable bedrooms, good value, breakfast (which was YUM!)
Low points: Could have done with more towels in bedroom, Food in Red Bar was average, alcohol in hotel bar quite expensive. Also, our TV wasn't working when we arrived, rang staff, told would have to wait until morning for technician but after an hour of messing around with the TV we got it to work ourselves - if someone had at least tried to help us it would have been better! Also, WIFI wasn't working on my ipod or laptop which was annoying.
