Just another chain hotel at Dublin's airport

by written on July 3, 2014

During my trip to Ireland in June 2014 I stayed here twice: after arrival, because I was to meet friends at the airport next morning, and at the end of my trip, before departure of my plane back to Germany. Although Radisson Blue was advertising with rates “from 69 Euro” before I booked before my flight, there was none of these medium priced rooms left, so I had a “business room” for 119 Euro including breakfast. The price was even higher on my last day, when I paid 135 Euro. As of now that I write this, July 3, 2014, their website says “rooms from 107 Euro”, so I assume that the price changes according to the season.

What can I say? It is a typical faceless business chain hotel with no charm (I don’t like these kinds of hotels, but I needed a room close to the airport in both cases). Hence I won’t tick a rating. The rooms look the same as in the majority of business hotels: bed, sofa, desks, flat screen TV, wardrobe, hair dryer, bathroom with tub and shower, sink, toilet and complimentary soap and toiletry. The coffee/tea making facility provided Nescafe and tea but there was also a Nespresso machine with 6 capsules and three different varieties from very strong to mild. However, I think that this Nespresso machine might be only available in these business rooms.
Breakfast was ample, of buffet style. Hot plates with scrambled eggs, potato cakes, grilled tomatoes, sausages, mushrooms, bacon, and continental style breakfast ingredients like cereals, several juices, salmon, marmalade, jam, Nutella, cold cuts, pastries, bread and rolls were provided. Coffee and tea was brought to the tables upon request, for coffee they had a machine with several options (including latte macchiato and cappuccino).
In the basement there is a large bar and a restaurant; dishes for moderate prices. I had a Cesar’s salad for 8,50 Euro.
Free WiFi is available, however their network is open (non-secured network it said on my notebook).

Staff at reception is nice, helpful and friendly. Credit cards are accepted, however my German bank card Maestro did not work on both occasions; the lady told me that this happens from time to time with Maestro cards from German banks. Strange!

Radisson Blue provides shuttle service to and from the airport, although Terminal 1 is in walking distance. Their shuttle bus stops close by Terminal 2 (see mark in my Bing Maps below).

Extremely friendly hotel with a very popular bar which serves quality pub food.
Have stayed in this hotel on a number of trips, and never had a problem.
Worth asking for a non-smoking room though as the ones used by smokers have a definite smokey smell to them.. not the hotels fault. Due to the legal ban on smoking in public areas in Ireland, smokers either have an option of smoking outside or in their room.
The rooms are well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean.
Good choice of menu in the main restaurant if you don't fancy the more noisier atmosphere of the Irish bar and its large screen telly which no-one seems to watch. Bar staff are efficient if sometimes not overly friendly - unusual for an Irish bar.

A free courtesy bus runs every 15 minutes between the arrival terminal at the airport and the hotel, or, if you feel energetic, you can walk it.

Offers special deals if you book online.
Can recommend the full Irish breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

Unique Quality: Very quiet rooms considering it's at the airport

Directions: Walk out the arrival terminal and you can see it - the large white building across the car and coach park. The courtesy bus leaves from a stance adjacent to the arrivals terminal directly across from the taxi rank.
