The place is very cozy and hv a warm atmosphere. The chef Dave is very meticulous on the menu and are keen to hear your suggestion and, why not, criticisms. Mark is a very professional waiter and can’t help but do his best make you...feel comfortable and at home. I strongly suggest the chicken parmigiana. In times is pandemic the Clayton Hotel Team by Dublin airport are doing their best to keep us safe and happy.More

What a tremendous let down this place was. I use the Clayton Hotel at Dublin airport on a regular basis for car parking and occasionally for overnight stays, before early morning flights. I had intended taking my wife to the Italian Kitchen at some stage...prior to one of these early flights but for various reasons had never got round to it. We were meant to fly to Portugal on an early flight on Sunday the 20th of Sept but due to the quarantine regulations had to cancel our trip. However, we decided to go ahead with our idea of having a meal in the Italian Restaurant and staying in the hotel on the 19th. Even though this was a two hour round trip with no flight to follow. After check in we had a drink in the bar and looked forward to our meal. On arrival at the restaurant we were greeted and promptly shown to our table. Our table location was fine as was the decor in the restaurant. Our server was Arran who was pleasant and efficient. However, it all went downhill after that. We both ordered the soup which was average at best and the late arriving bread was certainly not freshly baked as per the menu. My wife ordered the Fettucine Alfredo and i ordered Fritto Misto. My wife's dish was of a very poor standard. The pasta was not properly cooked and the sauce did little to enhance the dish. If anything it made it even more off-putting. My dish was very greasy and not what you would expect to be served up in an Italian restaurant.And while i ate most of it, it was not the enjoyable experience i had expected. I almost always order tiramisu for desert when in an italian restaurant and even it was average. The final insult to our intelligence was being served up a bottle of French red ( Amuse Merlot) advertised as Italian red on the wine list. We then had the pleasure of paying over 83 euros for this ensemble. I will certainly not be suggesting to any of my groups that we dine in the italian prior to or after any of our trips from dublin airport.More

I have stayed in the hotel for several weeks due to fathers bereavement,and every time I have been to the Italian restaurant the staff are always so attentive,courteous and friendly, a special thanks to Girish Phillip and Sean who went above and beyond when we...had a meal there after my fathers funeral. Thank you so much for making such an emotional day so nice including a complementary bottle of wine. WONDERFUL !!!More
