This area is so safe compared to staying closer to the city centre which I usually do for convenience. But it is only 10 min drive to get to centre from here. We also walked to and from a restaurant in Ballsbridge at night and we never once felt unsafe. The hotel has free parking which is very unusual in city. The room was small but spotless. The bathroom was like new with lovely Ritual toiletries. The windows in bedroom and bathroom open fully to allow plenty fresh air. A heated towel rail in bathroom was a nice touch. The corridors in the hotel are narrow but apart from that I would highly recommend this hotel.

We three had a wonderful time staying at the Sandymount hotel! It was a 5 night stay for us three, my partner and our son of 1 year and we couldn’t say enough.
The staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home and there was no doubt, we felt right at home.
This is a family run hotel, done with care and consideration. The hotel and our room was spotlessly clean everyday, the restaurant had delicious food, including options for vegetarians and a special menu for kids too! :) Not to mention how friendly and helpful the staff always were to us.
They too have a great area out front and out back which allowed us to see family and friends safely which was so wonderful! Not least to mention, there are tons or restaurants and cafes within walking distance, and you can easily walk in to town within minutes which was perfect for us with a buggy.
The location couldn’t be more ideal, with a plus that it too has tons of parking on a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood road. No question, we will be back again for sure and we hope soon and we’re looking forward to it! Thanks again Sandymount hotel :)

Congratulations to management and staff who have worked hard in this family run hotel over 3 generations successfully
developing it to a super 4 star, environmentally friendly hotel and achieving 65 years in business.
The hotel is renowned particularly for its exceptional staff, comfortable bedrooms and generous facilities, conference facilities and great food and bar. Located very close to the Aviva Stadium, RDS and Herbert Park in Ballsbridge, Sandymount village and the beach in Sandymount strand, are all within strolling distance of 1km or less. Dublin City centre is just a lovely 2 mile walk through some of Dublins most beautiful leafy streets with lots of shops bars and restaurants - en route, no matter which route you choose. Ask Bea, Ann or anyone at reception for the inside track!

It is also serviced by the DART light rail system and several frequent bus routes to city centre within 500m walk of the hotel, if you don't feel like walking along the banks of the river Dodder.
The hotel is meticulously maintained and has been given a face lift inside and out over the last couple of months. The gardens and outdoor seating areas are looking fabulous.
I look forward to seeing you all as soon as Covid-19 current restrictions are lifted. You have good reason to be very proud of yourselves and of all who have gone before you.
To John and Gerard Loughran and to your extraordinary team - Well Done to one and all. Wishing you continued success for the future.
Warmest regards,
Pat O'N

Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel was far too warm even at this time of year, no ventilation in the rooms even with the small window fully opened. They did supply an electric fan in the room but that was noisy and ineffective. Customer Service leaves a lot to be desired. Food is only average bar food. Late night bar service is a bit of a joke as they will only serve bottled beer once the bar closes, which is closed early for a hotel. It's a good location for the Aviva Stadium but any restaurants or bars are a good 20 minute walk. Good parking facilities but very annoying to find all are cars covered in a thick layer of muck following some spraying/power washing that was going on, had we been told we could have moved them, but again nothing.

We loved our stay at The Sandymount. We booked a King suite - worth the extra money - and our room was very spacious and comfortable, light filled and decorated in calm, muted tones. The staff are a credit to the hotel and were all so welcoming and friendly. It’s a big hotel but had the personal touch that made it a real family run hotel. The location could not be better - in a lovely leafy suburb but with easy, quick access to both city and coast. With the benefit of the free parking, a huge bonus for a city hotel, we left the car at the hotel and used the Dart to easily access the city centre and to explore the coast from Dalkey to Bray. Highly recommend this hotel and we look forward to returning soon.

+ The location of the hotel is slightly outside of Dublin centre with accessible train links within a 2-minute walk from the Sandymount Hotel. The hotel was well presented with super friendly staff who were happy to help with any queries and were able to share their knowledge on the local area quite well. Furthermore, staff assisted with booking taxi's to the airport, arranging takeaway deliveries to the hotel and storing luggage before and after check in which was greatly appreciated. In the room there were multiple streaming services available which provided something different to standard Freeview options in other hotels. The rooms were of a good standard, clean and catered for all of our needs. Additionally, the cleaners did an excellent job.

- There was not much that we did not like during our stay the most notable were the price of breakfast which was quite high, so we opted to travel into the city centre to find an alternative which ate up time during out visit. During one night of the stay, the consumer unit near the front door was making a loud buzzing noise all night which did cause some slight annoyance.

No matter how busy the hotel is, the staff are great. Very professional and courteous. The rooms are always spotless and the housekeeping crew are very helpful if anything extra is needed. The food at Whitty's Restaurant was top notch again which a lot of options (the pear and walnut salad is really nice!). Whilst masks are no longer mandatory, all the staff wore them and there were still hand santising stations in place at various locations within the hotel.

Very convenient location if you are visiting the Aviva stadium. Without exception very friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfast with wide range of options. We were in room 611 which was rather noisy as they were setting up facilities for the rugby crowd. Same problem when they were taking down the marquee etc. I would suggest you request a room on the other side of the building as it is much quieter. Over all a very pleasant weekend & I would recommend this friendly hotel.

Booked for six of us for an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast post lockdown as part of an college reunion which was much reduced in numbers due to Covid.

The experience from start to finish was excellent.

I was lucky enough to work with Ciara the Marketing Manager and she managed me brilliantly through the options and the twists and turns as our numbers constantly changed

Nothing was too much trouble for Ciara and the late changes on our end were all handled superbly.

As always a very warm welcome at reception from Beatrice and once checked in we were off and running. Pre dinner drinks in the Line Out bar which was nicely socially distanced and a very nice stop by and welcome from owner John Loughran. Dinner in the restaurant was very enjoyable and was followed by a few nightcaps. Rooms spacious, fresh and with very comfortable beds.

Up early the next morning and a walk to nearby Sandymount Strand, a coffee in the village and back for breakfast which was very well managed and with all the necessary precautions.

Highly recommend a stay in this very well run family owned hotel, friendly service, lovely rooms, very good food, super location with plenty of parking and excellent value for money.

In the heart of Dublin 4, beside the Aviva Stadium it is a super place to base yourself.

Highly recommended.

Tip book early as it is very popular.
