“Somewhere to put your head down - no more.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Stayed there as we were travelling and had an early flight the next morning. The best thing about it was the reception staff who suggested a short walk (we drove) to Swords where there were a number of nice restaurants for dinner. Sometimes all you need is a shower and a bed and this fit the bill. We all slept well.

Room Tip: We were in the back part of the hotel - reception suggested it would be the quietest. The front is n...

Helen,

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. I'm glad you slept well and you found how helpful and friendly our reception team are. Swords does indeed have a number of excellent restaurants whilst our own café bar also has an excellent menu with tasty satisfying food. I trust you had a good flight home and we hope to see you next time you visit Ireland.

Kind Regards,

David Ryan

No, never again...... ! , however the bed was good, though i was not really feeling safe, to make it worst when my friend was trying to catch up the shuttle to the airport, some one from the hotel told her to use a taxy and asked her to pay 12 eur, this is really annoying!
for sure will not book this hotel anymore

Ephie,

Many thanks for posting a review on TripAdvisor. We are always happy to receive feedback from our guests in relation to any issue, positive or negative. It is only through listening to our guests that we can constantly maintain and improve our service and standards.

We do have a shuttle bus service which runs from outside the hotel from 4.00am to 11.00pm every half hour. The cost of this service is €5pp or €7.50 return. If there are larger groups it can sometimes be more cost effective to use a taxi.

I am delighted you found the bed comfortable and I hope you reconsider your decision and come back to stay with us again in the future

Kind regards,

David Ryan

Room are spacious but a bit old. Bathroom/toilet is in need of an update. Foreign staff are 'strictly business' but the one Irish girl was really nice. Check in is 3pm firm even if the room is ready, early check in 10€. Wifi is 5€ PER DEVICE something I personally didn't like. Air port shuttle is 5€ PER PERSON. Therefore for two people it cost the same to use the shuttle as it does a taxi (10€). Something I also disagree with as other (pricer) hotels offer free shuttle. No lift (elevator). Credit card reader was difficult for the front desk staff to use and they themselves said it needs updating, which worried me at first but all was well with the card after.

Dear Matt,

Many thanks for posting a review on Trip Advisor. We are always happy to receive feedback from our guests in relation to any issue, positive or negative. It is only through listening to our guests that we can constantly maintain and improve our service and standards.

We do have a shuttle bus which runs from outside the hotel from 4.00am to 11.00pm every half hour and there is indeed a charge for this service. As you mentioned other more expensive hotels offer free shuttles. At Travelodge we've carefully designed our hotels to give you all the things you need without having to pay for the unnecessary things you don't. Not all our customers require a free airport shuttle so we pass these savings on by offering great value in our room prices.

I am delighted you found our hotel great value and that our reception team were efficient and nice. We look forward to seeing you again in the future

Kind regards,

David Ryan

Checked into the travel lodge. No messing because the room is paid in full at the time of booking - can't go wrong for €44.
The room was clean, quite large with a TV. Basic, but you know what you're getting before you book. There is a shuttle bus to the airport for €6 but it is also a managble 30 min walk if you fancy. The shower has two speeds - off and rip your skin off, extreme power shower. Was in town the night before and got a taxi back from Stephens Green. Thankfully I pre agreed €20 because the meter was running at €28. If your staying here to visit Dublin, you are a good spin from town. Enjoy.

MadYolk,

Thank you for your comments about Travelodge Dublin Airport Swords. I'm delighted you think we offer great value as we do like to offer competitive rates all year round. Our Shuttle bus runs every half hour and costs €5 pp one way and €7.50 return. It commences from 4.00am every day so is ideal for early morning flights. We look forward to seeing you again for one of them.

I stayed at the hotel because a family member had a 6 am flight so we needed someplace at short notice. It was the day of the All Ireland final so demand for hotels was high. As my team lost the game, some time was spent drowning our sorrows so we got to the hotel at 11pm. There was a large group of French people checking in and the two reception staff were most efficient. The one we dealt with was very friendly and full of chat, despite the late hour. The room was spotless and quiet. The place is basic but that's all you want when it's an overnight stay. There are tea/coffee making facilities and a high pressure shower to wake you up for an early start. Checkout was seamless and the shuttle prompt. No frills but cheerful comfort here.

Dear Spiceloft,

Thank you for your feedback in relation to your recent stay with us. The team at the hotel constantly strive to offer a warm friendly service to our guests and I'm delighted to read that we have once again delivered.

I glad you found our rooms spotless and quiet and used our tea/coffee making facilities. The high pressure showers certainly do wake you up. We offer an express checkout which you found seamless and our half hourly shuttle service. I'm so sorry that your team lost... perhaps we will see you when they get to another final and maybe be more successful :)

Kind Regards,

David Ryan
