We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express mid December before flying out from Dublin Airport. They offer a free shuttle bus service from the airport to the hotel and vice versa. That's a great bonus and it is stress free as you don't have to worry about finding your way in or anything.
The hotel itself was nice and clean, basic, but at the same time everything you would need was in the room (hairdryer, extra towels and pillows, TV, Internet, Coffee & Tea making facilities and Ironing board).
We slept very well. The hotel is not close to the airport as such (10 minutes' drive or so) so there is no noise coming from aircrafts taking off or landing. It is located by a small park and residential estates, nothing fancy but the surroundings seemed fine.
The reception staff was nice on arrival and prompt in dealing with our demands. As the Holiday Inn Express does not have a restaurant as such, we went next door to the Crowne Plaza, which has a bar and restaurant. We ate at the bar and the food was really good and the atmosphere quite nice.
Overall I would recommend it for an "airport" stay if you need to fly out the next day or if you need a place to stay in when just back from our trips. I don't know if it is the best hotel if you come to explore Dublin as transport can be tricky if you do not have a car of your own.
