A bit of historic southside

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 13, 2010

The Radisson blue occupies 4 acres of some of the most expensive land in Dublin. The southside of Dublin is where all the wealth congreates in Dublin. Many Irish people see the 'southsiders' as almost a seperate nation. Southsiders will often think the same thing.

The original building could be called a 'country house estate' (although it is still in urban Dublin). Built in 1750 of some very solid Portland stone it reeks of solidity and authority. The impressive public area remind one more of a London club rather than anything else. The modern attached orangerie has been well intergrated although the modern accommodation building is linked to the historic main building by a corridor that somewhat spoils the overall effect.

Rooms are clearly four star, but no more and the hotel lacks a swimming pool. I would expect that in any hotel that claims to be five - star.

Unique Quality: The formal gardens were quite impressive, even in late October. Promotional pictures do however ignore the manin road that runs in front of them.

On an entirely different note, the proximity of the RTE (irish TV company) studios make celebrity spotting quite a possibility here.

Some good deals can be had - we stayed for 140 euro (for family of 4) including breakfast in Oct 2010.

Beautiful, but a bit far from the city

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The hotel itself, and the room, were wonderful. It's very popular for weddings. In fact, two happened while we were there.

However, if your desire is to spend a lot of time in the city of Dublin, this is probably not the hotel for you unless you've been there several times. We chose it for the price, but would spend more money and stay inside the city next time.

Doesn't Hit the High Spot

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 11, 2006

Although I spend a lot of time in Dublin, I have stayed here only once.

The hotel itself is very beautiful - a converted old grand property in a very good area of suburban Dublin. There is a fountain at the entrance which is a pretty welcome to a lovely place.

However, I found it rather disappointing overall. I booked a suite and the website proclaimed the suites as being on the top floor with great views, many with open fires etc etc. My sister stays here regularly and she is usually upgraded to a suite, they give her complimentary champagne, etc etc. I was therefore more than disappointed to be secluded in what I would call the dungeons of this property. My suite overlooked..... the bin storage area. It was located in the basement. Nothing on the website had prepared me for a room in the basement!

While the room itself was comfortable, I didn;t get the expected mineral water at bed time, or newspaper in the morning. Maybe they forgot me - after all, I was in the doldrums.

Dinner in the hotel's main restaurant was a disappointment. The restaurant is very informal and there is no privacy at the tables. The food is mediocre Italian.

At breakfast, while the buffet is quite good, again you feel as if you are on display. Although there were many empty tables, an elderly lady insisted on joining me for breakfast. It was company I didn't need or want.

I am not at all anxious to visit this hotel again. It was a most disappointing experience.
