How to Get There
All the rave reviews led us to stay here. I think it probably would be great for people attending matches at the stadium across the street, but not so much for the average visitor.
First, the pluses: Comfortable beds and very clean and comfortable rooms. The front desk staff were friendly enough, but not exceptionally so. Free garage parking.
The not-so-greats: Location—nothing interesting within walking distance. Not at all in an area suitable for tourists wanting to do anything other than soccer matches. Wifi didn’t work most of the time we were there, and nobody seemed too concerned about fixing it. The “Executive Lounge” is pretty lame. It smelled of soured beer and had barely any snacks or drinks. The one plus was the espresso machine, but in the morning the room was closed for maintenance. I asked the front desk if there was another area offering complimentary coffee—I was told I could go to the restaurant and buy one.
For a vacationer looking for an interesting and convenient area, stay elsewhere.
Top class in its customer service. As a frequent visitor to this hotel it is lovely to be recognised & greated by name when you arrive at reception by Thomas & his team of Bernard, Deirdre & January to name a few. Then the Hostess with the Mostess Antoinette is an absolute pleasure & knows all her customers and is always so welcoming & makes the time to have a chat with people which is lovely as travelling on your own is not always enjoyable. New floor staff Kent & Kim are great & fit right in & ready to help out. This hotel is spotlessly clean & offers free parking to customers which is on site & makes for a very convenient stay. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
Pros: Free parking, quiet room, deep bathtub, elegant hotel, lovely breakfast
Cons: Not close to Temple Bar or downtown (wasn't a con for us)
We did not have high expectations for this hotel, to be honest and we were absolutely blown away. From the moment we checked in (warm face cloth to wash away the grime of the trip) to the fantastic recommendations from the concierge, Christopher, we enjoyed our stay from start to finish.
There were a few hiccups: the first room we were assigned had a heavy lingering odor of smoke from a previous guest. One call to the front desk and it was taken care of. We LOVED our room and the deep bathtub for soaking. The breakfast room was charming and the food was delicious. Yes, it is a little bit of a short walk to the Temple Bar district, but that really wasn't a big deal for us. We took the bus to Guinness for the day and then walked all over downtown before walking back int eh evening.
Above all, the evening staff is their biggest asset. Sadly, subsequent hotels we stayed in during our Ireland honeymoon didn't meet the same quality standards we experienced at the Croke Park.
Pro tip: We like a COLD room at night and hotels in Ireland do not typically include a top sheet. Ask for one. Otherwise, you'll find the bed made only with a duvet cover and bottom sheet.
