Probably the best hotel in Ireland

Ballyfin Demesne

Those who aren't restricted by a budget, should take a look at Ballyfin, which is arguably Ireland's best hotel. However, prices can be quite steep, set at 1000 euros per night and upward. The old manor house with its sweeping gardens make the ideal base for a wedding celebration or other formal event.

Take a seat and relax a while....

Families will love it here as there is something for everyone to enjoy, from picnic lunches in the private gardens to dressing up in period costumes for a themed gourmet dinner. Activities sometimes need to be booked in advance to make sure a guide is available and all preparations have been made. A storyteller is available at the grotto to regale the children with Irish folk tales. A pony and carriage ride around the demesne can be arranged, followed by a boat trip on the lake. The list of activities and amenities is endless.
5 star hotel just outside Dublin

Radisson BLU St. Helen's Hotel

The Radisson BLU St. Helen's Hotel is an excellent hotel found just south of Dublin in Booterstown. Centuries ago, the town was a transit point between the residence of Ireland's High King at Tara and the king's lands closer to Bray. It can be reached by bus or train, and there's a frequent Aircoach shuttle service running between the town and the Dublin airport.

The hotel is located in what used to be the headquarters of the Congregation of the Irish Christian Brothers. Prior to that it was owned by an MP, followed by a field marshal of the British Army. Booterstown is famous for its bird sanctuary in the marsh. There's also a dedicated circus fields where two circuses set up annual events. The hotel itself retains the glory of its origins as a stately manor with wide landscaped gardens.

The five-star hotel took over the building in 1998, even though it was listed as a National Monument four years earlier. A new wing was added but many of the old details remain, including a library in the main house. The meeting rooms are named for the house's previous owners and historical figures.
The Radisson BLU St. Helen's Hotel is ideal for conferences and celebrations such as weddings, but it is also a great destination if you want to stay in a quiet, beautiful environment just to take a break and recharge.
Most of the rooms have splendid views of the estate, and of course, the rooms with balconies are the best. Guests can exercise with free access to the hotel's modern gym.
Book Radisson BLU St Helen's Hotel
"Spacious room and very comfortable. Relaxed atmosphere throughout. Parking underground convenient. Gardens added to a very enjoyable experience."
Ideal business hotel close to Dublin airport

Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport

The Crowne Plaza Hotel Dublin-Northwood is 8 kilometers north of Dublin, it caters mostly to business guests, rather than tourists.
This is the ideal business hotel if you need to stay close to Dublin airport, it's also great for hosting conferences. You'll be right next to Santry park, which is perfect for joggers, and the hotel has a very well equipped gym. The rooms are spacious, and the prices are very fair.

If you travel to Dublin quite often on business, this could become your base camp in the city. The hotel also has a large car park and a free shuttle service to the airport.
Book Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport
"The extras on the 4th floor are unreal, we'll worth the money, and the food and staff in the bar are super, can't wait to stay there again."
spa and leisure centre

Sheldon Park Hotel

The Sheldon Park, mostly frequented for its spa and leisure centre as well as its proximity to Dublin, is found in Bluebell, Dublin. It isn't quite in the same class as the Radisson Blu St. Helen's, so it's a bit cheaper.
As a suburb of Dublin, Bluebell was a market garden and farming neighborhood prior to the 50s. Families moved into the area when it was developed to include more housing. Eventually, the influx of paper mills and other industries led to the dramatic development and industrialization of the neighborhood. Despite this, there are no supermarkets or large shopping complexes here. There is only one pub and one church. A tram line serves the area and can take visitors into Dublin.
Book Sheldon Park Hotel
"Received a large family room, rather than a standard family room as pre-booked by the friendly receptionist on arrival. Evening was nice in the bar as was the breakfast also."

Hotels by the Sea

For those who want to live by the sea, as in fact the creators of this website do, several other options exist.

lovely place to retreat

King Sitric

King Sitric is both a seafood restaurant and small guesthouse based in the fishing village of Howth. Those who live in Dublin will find this is a lovely place to retreat and enjoy the natural outdoors. Tourists will enjoy spending a day or two here as well before moving on to a property closer to Dublin to see the rest of the sights. Dublin Airport is 20 minutes away, and the city centre, accessible by DART, is 25 minutes away.
The fish served in the restaurant is always fresh off the pier, and the wine list is excellent. The eight guestrooms are named after lighthouses and have sea views, where the higher floors have the best view. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom and are non-smoking.
