The shuttle driver was awesome. Check in staff needed warming up. Nice location with rides supplied to the local train station. Nothing to do near the hotel, but relax by the ocean. Very calming.

friendly atmosphere and beachfront location.

Pros: The staff was very friendly & helpful
Cons: The rooms need serious renovation and signs more clearly designating the locations of the rooms.
Location: If you can afford the taxi to Dublin or have nerves of steel and drive into the city, there is everything to do. Otherwise, only the beach
The hotel was much further from Dublin than I thought, which makes for an expensive taxi ride. The rooms could use a serious updating. I'm sure housekeeping the staff does the best they can but there was mold in the bathroom. The room needs more electrical outlets but otherwise it suited our needs. Word to the wise - request beachside room as the west side had a view of the restaurant roof and the parking lot.

Wonderful, quiet and convenient

We checked in 4/19/17 and checked out 4/26/17. This was our first trip to Ireland and this hotel was easy to find and a short trip from the Dublin airport with wonderful views of the water. The only downside is there are no refrigerators in the rooms so we couldn't chill any drinks or keep food if we needed to. Overall, a great place to stay while exploring all of Ireland. We loved it!

Do not get rooms 131-137 if looking for seaview

We checked into the room specifically requesting on reservation and upon check in for a seaview room. Although the hotel seems to believe the bottom floors have a seaview they should be called green view rooms as there are large native plants blocking any view of the sea. Otherwise the hotel has a great location right on the beach with easy access and wonderful views of the Irish Sea. The bar is reasonably priced and decent food.

RELAX before you go home

Gorgeous location close to the airport. Beach, cliff path for walking. Rooms could use some upgrades, but understand from the new owner that those are underway. Great food in bar/restaurant overlooking the sea. Beautiful patio overlooking sea.

Nice hotel close to the beach.

We lived the walking path and the deck outside the bar to sit on and watch the water/beach goers! Other than that-everything was mediocre. Had empty bottles of other patrons shampoo left in the shower, no convenient plug ins close to the head of bed for medical device needs, breakfast was fair-cold. Outdated decor.
