Lovely staff Good service Food in the resteraunt was excellent. The chowder was enormous like a dinner on its own The lounge was comfortable and we came back on a Saturday another 2am and people were still there drinking and chatting Very good transport links into the centre of town
I have stayed at the Skylon several times this summer and many times over the years. Their customer service is excellent. The summer before COVID, I left my computer in the safe at the hotel. The retrieved it and kept it until we returned from Italy. This year, my luggage from the States went missing. We were only staying one night, then heading up to Northern Ireland. They made a note in the system and were prepared to hold the luggage for me. I know they made the note because I forgot to notify them that I had tracked it down at the airport on our way up to Northern Ireland and they asked about it when we returned. It will require a bus or taxi to get into the city center, or a long-ish walk, but the comfort of accommodations, the competent and caring staff and the reasonable price they typically charge is hard to beat. We'll be staying there again the next time we are in Dublin.…
Lots to like about this place. Ideally situated for the airport and easy bus ride into the City. Very nice rooms. Huge beds. The restaurant is excellent. Buffet breakfast very good as is the evening menu. Staff very friendly. Will return for sure.
Good family hotel. Spacious rooms and close to city centre by bus, 10-15 min trip to O’Connell Street. Only minor downside was no aircon, but most Dublin hotels are the same in that regard. A table fan was provided upon request. Overall great experience
Really good little hotel, about a 15 minute drive from the airport, and the city centre. Breakfast and lunch in the restaurant were great, really lovely grub, and delightful serving staff. We stayed in a twin room on the 3rd floor - not the nicest views out of the back of the hotel, and there were a couple of issues in the bathroom (door handle coming off and extractor fan didn't work). The Rituals toiletries were a nice touch though, and the large shower was great. Staff were helpful and friendly, and the location was good for central travel - there are plenty of bus stops pretty much directly outside the hotel. Do remember to take Euro coins for the bus, or buy a travel card if you're there for more than a few days! Overall, a good hotel for a base for excursions but not exactly in the hubbub of the actual city centre.…
We had a triple and twin room, plenty off room in them, very clean and comfortable, fridge and fan as well. Thanks to Paul the manager, who was lovely and really helpful. Girl in Reception who booked us in could've been a bit more welcoming, even checking out, we weren't even asked did we enjoy our stay, very abrupt, treating people with kindness and a genuine smile goes a long way.
Fantastic spacious hotel room for a family of four. Large double and two single beds to accommodate our two teenagers. Tea, coffee and lovely biscuits in room. Rituals shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom. What more could you want. Lovely bar food menu and if course very pleasant staff who were fantastic at their job. We were helped park our car with the last car space available by a fabulous man who greeted us with a smile and lovey Dublin humour. Parking was €10. All in all I was extremely impressed with The Dublin Skylon and will 100% recommend a stay here to any families visiting Dublin. The bus stops outside to go into the city centre so very accessible for everyone.
The front desk, room service, and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful, but the rooms were a colossal disappointment. They are shabbily decorated, in garish colors. There is sparce furniture, not even a dresser to park your suitcase on or unload your clothes. The furniture that is in the room looks like it was purchased from a local discount furniture store. The carpet was stained and worn. While it is a great location to some nice restaurants and pubs, the room itself was a huge disappointment.
Excellent location.clean . Friendly front desk receptionist. Lots of small and restaurant and to go food outside the hotel. Good area Close to all by bus and 15 min to Dublin downtown . Make sure to buy a bus card called “LEAP” in any SPAR store - there’s one Spar store outside the hotel or at any downtown Dublin. EXCELLENT BREAKFAST BUFFET- a must to include in your stay.
Had a pleasant stay here, bed was very comfortable and shower had good power. The breakfast was really good, sausages were fab! Staff were also friendly. Would definitely go back! The only con was having no lift to car park but nothing major.
