First, the hotel is about 8 miles from dublin. If thats the focus of your stay ask about the buses and get them down. A buddy and I stayed four nights in the hotel. The staff were excellent! The rooms were exceptionally clean and they were always helpful beyond expectations. The town itself is older and I'm 26, so when we first got there we got very dirty looks. Apparently a lot of crime happened with people wearing hoodies so they have a bad reputation. Of course we were wearing hoodies and didnt know this. We put on coats and all the looks stopped almost instantly. The sights were gorgeous and i loved waking up to the ocean every day.
The Carlton Hotel is freshly painted with comfortable, quiet rooms even though it is so near the Dublin Airport. The décor is elegant and warm. And, as always, the Irish people are warm and hospitable. I was happy to end my 2 month European vacation at The Carlton where the staff is warm and friendly and the beds are exceptionally comfortable.
Arrived to a warm welcome, very efficient staff, restuarant also good although under some construction. Breakfast was good and plentiful with very helpful staff. 100 percent better than the Swords South Travel Lodge, atmosphere felt quite threatening there with dark underground car park. This hotel has good parking in outside the door car park. Will stay her again when airport travel is required.
We needed a last minute hotel and this happened to be available. I used Expedia on my smart phone and got the last room available by confirmation. When we arrived, they were pretty much waiting for us.
This hotel is excellent. Super clean, friendly staff, great food and very easy access to the bus to get to central Dublin. We will definitely returning to Dublin and definitely will stay at this hotel!
