Beautiful hotel within minutes of stunning views. Close to public transport and less than a mile walk to Dalkey. Which is a very cool little town full of art and little pubs. Definitely in the wealthy side so if you are looking for a proletariat experience; this is not for you. The bus to Dun laoghaire is within minutes of walking and that town is a super cool scene right on the water.

Wonderful eating facilities. A bit far into nearest town, Dalkey, if walking. Hard climb to return from town to the hotel. If not real fit, may need a taxi. Easy commute into Dublin by the DART train for about $6 round trip. Dalkey is a quaint town with everything we needed.

Nice place!

Our experience was great! It's definitely a 5 star hotel, with full amenities. The rooms were small by American standards, but large by European ones. It is located in Dalkey, which is a southern suburb of Dublin. It's pretty easy to get to using the DART, which is Dublin's commuter rail. The ride takes about a half hour. There are directions on their website explaining how to get from the DART station to the hotel (basically you walk 10 minutes up the hill). The furnishings in the room were a little older, but elegant and clean. The bathroom was also nice, except that our shower was extremely hot for some reason. But I suspect that was just our room. Downstairs there is a nice bar, a large gathering area, and two restaurants. We only ate at the Dungeon, which despite its name is a nice upscale dining room. The food was a little pricey but good. We did not eat at the other restaurant, PJs, but the menu looked great... but very expensive. What else? The staff was very accommodating, and the concierge helped us book the Wild Wicklow tour, which picked us up at the hotel the next morning (excellent tour, btw). Dalkey Castle was interesting; they have live acting as if it's the middle ages, and the museum downstairs is good as well. And finally, once the day is done, the pub downstairs serves Guinness.
