5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Clean and comfortable, right on the beach and at the bus stop from the airport. This place could be a decrepit shack in the wilds and it would still get my vote for the fantastic location at the head of the beach and walking distance to Malahide village, which is charming (walking distance to Portmarnock village center too). Luckily, it's not just a shack on the beach: nice pub and decent dining, and a nice enclosed patio. The only quirk for the room I had was a weird mechanical system that whirred on and off all night. I slept through it, but your mileage may vary.
