Historical Traveler Reviews Ardmore Hotel Dublin
Deserves good reviews, especially for service
Any hotel that lets you into your reserved room at 8 am is unusually helpful to customers, and that's what the Ardmore did last week when I flew in on the red eye from Boston, suffering from jet lag. So I would certainly verify all the comments here on the high standards of service and friendliness on the part of the staff. The rooms are clean, modern, neat and the rates are reasonable. The only liability is in the surroundings, a bleak, low-rise apartment block neighborhood. Guests who don't want to pay the 12 Euros for the Ardmore's breakfast buffet can walk the two blocks further up the road to the Tesco Supermarket, where there's an in-store cafe with a good Irish breakfast for about 6 Euros.
Had to stay in Dublin in early December for the funeral of an aunt. So the night before I headed up, I checked for available and reasonable hotels in Dublin. I got a rate of €70 for room only per night. The hotel is new, modern and very clean. It is out from town somewhat but is on a major road out of Dublin. Traffic noise may be a problem for some if you're at the front of the hotel. One aspect they could improve on is HEAT. It was absolutely freezing in the hotel room all night. A request to reception didn't appear to change anything on that front.
Would I stay here again? The answer is yes!
Great value hotel
We stayed at the Ardmore as part of our world trip. Out of the 8 hotels we stayed in, this one was one of the best overall. It is a new hotel, and the rooms feel newish. However the finish is not that of the expensive hotels. It is definately a 3+ star hotel, but a very nice one. The rates for this hotel are unbelievable. It was half the price of anything else in dublin of equivalent quality. The rooms are quite small, but big enough, the bathroom is good. We had some noises from the bar at night, but these died away pretty soon. The bus is convienient to town, and we found the bus drivers friendly. We paid either 1.55 or 1.35 to get the bus into town, it changed depending on the driver. The reception was good, allowing us to check in early. We did not eat here, as the restaurant looked rather expensive. The supermarket is less than a five minute work, and that was an experieince. If I was in Dublin, I would stay here again, and would not have any problems recommending it. You will need to catch a cab to the airport at 20 euro, or bus to town and catch a shuttle from town.
We were at the Hotel on November/05.
The room was a bit noisy (a main road is nearby the hotel) and a bit small. Quite clean and tidy. The bathroom has a huge tub.
The Ardmore has its own Saloon Bar, with live music, where to spend a quiet evening (it closes late at night).
It looks like quite far away from town, but itīs very easy and straightforward to get to it: 40, 40A, 40B buses. From city centre to the hotelīs door, easy!
Take care if you go by plane to Dublin because catching the wrong "Air Link" can take you to anywhere else (it happened 2 me).
And the very best: the price, is really cheap, itīs a worth and the best option for a weekend break.
Iīd go back, sure.
New, Modern and Chic
I was a little worried about staying at the hotel because it is new and I wasn't sure what to expect. We picked this hotel because of the price - and we found it to be great value for money. I was pleasently surprised, the hotel was very clean and spacious with very friendly staff too. Flat screen TV, leather chairs and large bathrooms, everything was great. There was some building going on outside our room (another hotel going up) but they weren't very noisy.
The only downside was the distance from the city centre - don't get a taxi its really expensive (about 20 euro to Temple Bar)whereas the bus directly outside the hotel is only 1.35 euro into the centre, bargain! and they are every 10mins, just hop on 40 A, B or C and you're there in about 15 mins. The taxi to the airport was 20 euro too.
Theres not much to see where the hotel is - its pretty much residential and theres a retail park just up the road.
Although the rates per night for this hotel are quite reasonable it was disappointing in some respects. The hotel opened in May but it hasnt ironed out the glitches that annoy the average guest looking for a relaxing weekend. Firstly the carpark: each time we wished to remove the car from the basement car park we had to come to reception to ask them to open the barrier and each time we arrived back we had to do the same. On a couple of occasions after visiting reception to do this and then journeying to our car we found that they had neglected to raise the barrier and we had to make our way back up to ask again. In addition it is not a suitable hotel for a business guest as it has yet to install internet access in the rooms and there are no papers available in the lobby as advertised. Staff were generally pleasant although the receptionist who greeted us on our arrival had a very strong foreign accent and was very hard to understand his instructions. The area itself is not within reasonable distance of any entertainment so transport must be paid for. The decor is very nice and comfortable however very noisy due to the busy traffic outside. Overall comfortable but these details should have been taken care of before opening as we will not return again and would recommend others to stay nearer to city centre rather than so far out in a hotel thats not quite finished.
Best Value in Dublin
This is a new hotel. Because the rate was so reasonable in comparison to other hotels, we were concerned that it might be in a less than desirable neighborhood...not true. While it is a distance from the city center, it is in a neighborhood that is booming with new condominiums. However there are no restaurants near the hotel. Transportation does not have to be by taxi to the city center as bus lines 40 A/C all stop in front of or across the street from the hotel. It is a 20 minute bus ride to O'Connell and Parnell Streets. The rooms are very modern, well decorated and very clean. The staff is very courteous and helpful. We had dinner one night of our three night stay at the hotel, the staff was attentive and the food was very good. We did take a taxi to the airport at the cost of 20 Euros. The airport bus does not operate on this street. This is the best value in Dublin.
Just returned from a great weekend at the Ardmore and being a seasoned traveller I can honestly say this is one of the best in Dublin.
Location is about 15 Euro taxi ride from the airport and 10 Euro to the city centre.
The staff were all extremely friendly and professional. Having arrived late on the Friday night and not wanting to leave the hotel it was great to see they had entertainment in the bar.
The rooms were modern, spacious and spotless.
Breakfast was a help yourself affair which was a great hangover cure.
I would recommend this hotel and will definitely go back if returning to Dublin.
Great Airport Hotel
Stayed here before going on holidays, was a bit wary because I knew it was a new hotel and expected to encounter some teething problems, but couldn't have been further from the truth. It was great value only €69 on Expedia for the room.
This is a quality modern hotel but has all the traditional things you would expect quality service with a smile and good food. Rooms were a nice size with bathroom and nice furniture.
Although it is 5 miles from the airport it is motorway most of the way and we were there in 10 minutes.
So definiteley a big thumbs up for all the staff at the Ardmore.
Friendliest Hotel on the North Side of Dublin !
This Hotel is not in a fantastic location with wonderful views or landscaped gardens - it fronts onto a busy main road ! Its brand new in 2005 - with clean, comfortable rooms. You are 10 minutes from the city centre but you will need to get a taxi.
What makes it unique is the staff and the service. They were exceptionally courteous and helpful - both in the bar and restaurant. They were polite, quick and keenly interested in how everything was. I really had thought that we had lost this type of 'customer service' ethos in Ireland. I am glad to say it is alive and well in the Tolka Valley !
I stayed here with a friend (who picked the hotel), and even though I live in Dublin, I normally would not have given it a second glance until now....
Next time I am asked for a good hotel to stay on the north side of the city that's pretty close to the airport, I will recommend the Ardmore ! And yes, I am going back !

... tour guide Richie was phenomenal and extremely informative. You felt as though you had a countryman introducing you to a beloved piece of country.
This tour is known for its filmography. Film crews from P.S. I Love You, Braveheart, the TV show Vikings, and Reign of Fire appreciated the sloped farmlands and green brush. There was so much to see.
Norma's plan to revisit Harry Potter on the way to the plane on the way to Ireland didn’t work out. There were more souvenirs she forgot to get the first time through that she just had to have. (But they wouldn’t let us in without a ticket just to visit the souvenir shop. "So sorry, mate," the guard said. “But you can get it online.” No, Norma replies. “There is not nearly the amount of stuff online as in the souvenir shop.” To no ...
My trip today is along one of the motor ways as it will take about 3 hours travelling from Ennis to Dublin even with a 120 Kms speed limit. This driving is more tiring than the previous 7 days. I think it is because it is just a stretch of bitumen and not a lot of interesting scenery like I have been experiencing. Certainly not the opportunity to stop and take ...

While the sleeping sleep, I take our 2 bags of laundry down the street and around a short corner to the laundrette where I drop off the bags with a nice lady who promises to try not to shrink out clothes. The clean clothes will be ready today..excellent!
