I had not heard of this hotel prior to making my reservation but have since learned that they are located throughout the UK. Check-in was quick and simple, and the staff were extremely friendly. I enjoyed some Guiness in the bar, where again I found the staff to be great. The room was nicely equipped, very clean, and had a nice bathroom. Oddly enough, the room had a pull-out sofa, a queen size bed, and a single bed. All were made up and ready when I checked in. I don't think I've seen a sleeping configuration quite like this before. Breakfast the next morning was nice. It's buffet style. All the ingredients seemed fresh.
Oh, I should also mention that the hotel offers a free shuttle 24/7 to/from the airport. I arrived in Dublin after 10pm and was pleasantly surprised to find the bus waiting int he bus/coach area.
In summary, a very nice "airport" hotel. I would have no hesitation staying here again if ever my travels take me to/through Dublin.
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.
This hotel was only built 2 years ago and is as good as any hotel I have ever stayed in including Hilton etc. The design is fantastic, the bedrooms very spacious with a table and chairs where you can have your meals delivered from the restaurant if you wish. There is also a good restaurant and bar and the staff were really helpful and pleasant especially Rachael the receptionist. Very Very highly recommended.
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!
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.
Stayed here on a Saturday night to be able to catch our Sunday morning flight from Dublin Airport. Check in went smoothly, and the room was clean, comfortable, and modern. You can check in and print boarding passes in the lobby. The lobby area also has a nice restaurant, and two areas for drinks--one has comfy seating for conversation, and the other is better for watching sports. The bar separates the two areas, and staff members serve both areas. After a wonderful week of touring, we simply wanted a bottle of wine and water to take back to the room. Complimentary shuttle to the terminal, which was about 5 minutes max from the Maldron, and even though we were so close to the airport, the rooms were surprisingly quiet-- little to no airplane noise. I would recommend this hotel for a layover!
