Went for dinner in the restaurant. Recent enough refit and the bar/restaurant certainly feels fresh. Very nice staff but food was average and steak was over cooked. Also unfortunate that condiments come in plastic pots. Cheapens everything. Would not visit again anytime soon.

About
Description
The hotel enjoys a truly unique location, in a peaceful setting yet within close proximity to the airport, city centre, major road networks, bus and rail services. The local train station at Castleknock More Village is a mere 5 minutes from the hotel with direct links to the city’s financial district and tourist attractions. Visitors can avail of free parking in the hotel’s 50 space private car park. Now re-open following major refurbishment, this family run small hotel is the perfect base from which to explore Dublin and the city’s surrounding amenities. Our hotel features 12 Superior Bedrooms which have all modern facilities and exude comfort and luxury. The Terrace Bar & Bistro serves breakfast from 7.30am and our full Bistro Menu from 12pm-10pm daily. This canal side location is the perfect place to relax with a cold beer, handcrafted cocktail, glass of wine or a tasty coffee and home-baked pastry. Less
