Stayed at the 'inn on the liffey' Dublin and i wouldnt recommend this place to anyone. The place was tatty, not very clean and very noisy.
The 'limerick inn' in Limerick of course, very nice. The rooms were big and clean, great leisure centre attached with pool, suana, jacuzzi, steam room, tennis courts. i would recommend this place to anyone.
The last place i stayed was the 'great southern hotel' Dublin airport. Nice clean rooms, the restaurant however had terrible service, took ages to take the order, ages for the food to arrive, I had to ask three times for the wine once it had been ordered.... sleep there but do not eat in the 'porters restaurant'.
Again in a heartbeat
Excellent. I was only there 1 night on my way out of Ireland, but I was so SATISFIED I had to write. From the bellman, to the front desk to the shuttle driver to the banquet worker who happened to be going to the airport at the same time I was. Everyone was an asset to the company and to the Tourism profession.
The banquet server directed me and helped me to get onto the right bus going from the airport to City center on a day when regular service was disrupted. He was great! I hope he enjoys his vacation during Christmas.
Stay here....A pleasurable experience!
Stayed one night on transit to the Middle East and i would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The room was booked via a well known last minute web site as a standard room.
The room itself was clean, but the bed was a "pull down" and was very uncomfortable as it was too soft and you fell into the middle. The pull down had built in furniture surrounding it, that made it impossible to turn the room lights off without getting out of bed.
Reception staff were very plesant in discussing my complaint, informing me that i should have complained earlier and they would have moved me. To classify this room as standard is a worry. Are all standard rooms fitted with pull down beds?
If you want an overnight stay near the airport there is a much nicer hotel accross the road.
Loved the Great Southern - Dublin Airport
The last time we were in Dublin, my husband had a heart attack the last day of our visit. We were staying in the Great Southern at the airport. The staff could not have been nicer, they responded immediately when I called about his problem. They offered me the use of the room for the same rate we had paid while on the tour and could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel. The room was wonderful, large and clean. The staff were all very friendly. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Short and sweet
We were going to fly out to South Africa and were kind of dreading the long flight after an hour's drive to the airport. So we decided to stay at the airport before taking off and be more relaxed. I checked out the internet and logged on to the Great Southern website, thought great rate €99 per night. But I wasn't able to book via the website, so rang the hotel and told them. They honoured the web rate, booked us in and we checked in a couple of days later. We received a warm welcome at reception and the girls were quite helpful, arranging a wake-up call (no way I'd get up without one at 4 AM!) and they recommended to have something to eat from the bar as the restaurant was closed. Everything was really lovely, the food and atmosphere, the staff! Got a few tips for our journey from one of the night receptionists too...
Clean, friendly and spacious
If you're looking for a bed for the night that is near to the airport in Dublin, look no further. The Great Southern has clean, spacious rooms, friendly staff and small but functional bathrooms. We paid 109 euros on the laterooms website for a peak Saturday night (rugby was on) and had a comfortable sleep without breaking the bank.
One tip, we were advised to get the hotel shuttle to the airport and the airport express bus to town to save a few quid. That cost 14 euros one way for two of us, but a taxi back was only 17 euros one way for two of us. Just get a cab - the bus isn't worth the hassle for a couple of euros saving!
Early Flight Hotel
Stayed at the Great Southern Hotel which was our last night in Ireland. Picked this hotel because its close to the airport. Had to return a car rental so we stopped at the hotel and asked where we could fill up before returning the car. They gave us a detailed map showing
where the gas station was which is only 2 blocks away. Returned the car and walked back to
the hotel since it was only a few blocks away and we had left our bags at the hotel. We took the hotel shuttle from the hotel at 5am, it runs 24 hours a day every 10 minutes. It is only a 5 minute ride to the terminal. Can not hear any plane noise in the hotel which was nice. We had the buffet in the lounge area and it was very good for 9 euros. All in all I recommend this hotel
for use in making a early or late connection to the airport.
I stayed at this hotel for one night in early May 2006, because of a late night arrival from Scotland. This is not a hotel it is a motel and the only reason to stay there is its proximity to the airport. Front desk personnel were unfriendly and incompetent and the servers in the bar were downright hostile. The room was dingy and drab. The overall ambiance is that of a downtrodden Motel 6.
The best at Dublin Airport
The Great Southern at Dublin airport is well worth a visit.
Its only a few hundred yards from the terminal building, and has a courtesy coach running every 10 mins 24hrs a day.
My single room was beautiful. In fact it was more like a junior suite. It even had a walk in wardrobe. The bed was very comfy, the furnishings were modern and of excellent quality. It had tea & coffee making facilities, but no complimentary biscuits. The bathroom was completely white and functional, and was a little bland in comparison to the welcoming colours of the bedroom. There was also a wireless internet keyboard in the room.
My departure required me to leave before breakfast started, but reception volunteered a continental breakfast delivered to the room at no extra charge. It was excellent, with hot toast, cereal, yoghurt, jams, rolls, tea, orange juice, a banana, in fact everything I wanted and more!
Having also stayed recently at the adjacent Clarion, the Great Southern has superior rooms. For that reason the Great Southern would be my hotel of choice.
