Treated like royalty

Posted 15-Nov-2014
Pros: Service, food, cleanliness.
Cons: Nothing, really. Everything was excellent.
Location: Dun Loaghaire is a quaint town, a twenty minute DART ride from Dublin. Close enough for all the sights, and a nice place to return for the night.
We arrived early, and they gave us an excellent upgrade so we could check in at 11AM. Beautiful view, and charming town. The staff was excellent, our room clean an appealing. The hotel is older, which is part of its charm, but the rooms do show a bit of aging. Bathrooms were completely modern. Bed was soft and comfortable, and the food on site was excellent. In fact, several locals meet at the hotel for meals, which says a lot for a hotel. Close to the DART - train to Dublin and further. The beautiful pier is right out the front door, and out the back bar door takes you to a small shopping mall. Lovely town, wonderful, friendly people. My daughter and I had massages, too, and used the spa facilities, which were marvelous. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel, especially after hearing others bad experiences at some of the "nicer" Dublin hotels. We will definitely return to The Royal Marine.

Quiet and quaint

Posted 30-Oct-2014
Pros: The best attribute is being in a quieter location away from the downtown core but with quick access when needed.
Location: Walking the pier and south along the coast is a great fresh air experience.
This was my 2nd stay at the Royal Marine Hotel having spent a week in September 2013. Both stays were terrific with staff being very courteous and helpful, the check in experience very smooth and the room being quiet and comfortable. Internet service was excellent in the room and in the lobby. The location itself is lovely to be able to look out over the Dun Leary harbour and the ability to open the windows for fresh clean sea air is an added bonus. It is a short 20 to 25 minute trek by train or bus from city centre but well worth it for a more quaint stay.

Pleasant location for hotel outside of Dublin city

Posted 02-Oct-2014
Pros: The Hotel was extremely comfortable, busy, vibrant and cheerful lounges and bar. Good choice of food options. AirCoach pick up point for Airport.
Cons: Reduce the size of the pillows on double/ queen beds as the are longer than standard size and hang over the side of the bed.
Location: Dun Laoghaire is a sailing/marine suburb outside of Dublin City but within easy reach of Dublin and elsewhere by Dart and buses.
After 38 years absence I visited Ireland where I was born. My two daughters and I spent some time touring the country on a CIE tour, a few days in a Dublin city hotel and prior to departing for home in Sydney Australia stayed at the Royal Marine hotel. We were delighted with our room and in particular the bathroom which had a separate shower not one over the bathtub. It was a perfect base for walking or taking the Dart transport to other places of interest on the south coast of Dublin - Dalkey or Bray for example. The Dundrum shopping centre is a short bus or taxi ride away which had 120 shops including a Jamie Oliver's restaurant. Dun Laoghaire has it's own shopping area which includes a cinema and after a walk on the East Pier you earn an icecream from Scrumdidilly a nearby icecream shop or from the kiosk on the pier itself.
