    Helpful staff, massive room, shuttle to the terminal.
    Bit pricey but to be expected I guess for a largely business clientelle.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Dublin Airport



    We arrived in from a trip at about 11.30 at night, and all there was on offer to eat was inedible, cold, rubbery sandwiches. Not what you expect from a travellers hotel.

    Great airport hotel


    This is the perfect hotel. We stayed here the night we arrived in Dublin and enjoyed it so much we stayed here the night before leaving. It is five minutes from the airport and five minutes after calling for a ride to the hotel the shuttle is there. The rooms are large, open and airy. There is a mini bar with glassware. They have a large bar/restaurant with a big screen tv that is always tuned to some sport. Also, comfortable beds and great european bathrooms and a pants presser which we loved.

    Good Airport Hotel


    While you still needed to take a van from the airport, this hotel is very convenient to Dublin Airport. Van service was very prompt. The room was very nice and good for the business traveler. It was also very fairly priced at 99 Euros. If you need a place to stay before flying out in the morning, this is an excellent choice.

    Reasonable accomodations. Staff a mixed bag.


    Can't get too excited about an airport hotel, but this one is modern, clean, and nicely appointed. The room was fairly Spartan, and if you like your mattresses extra, extra firm, this is the place for you. A functional design for the business traveler, at a very reasonable price.

    If you can avoid dining at the main hotel restaurant, so much the better. While breakfast was OK, dinner was both pricey and mediocre. As a regular business traveler, I'm well familiar with the perils and pitfalls of a hotel restaurant, and this was slightly below par, even with those diminished expectations. Most of the dining room staff appeared to be recent arrivals to Ireland, and barely understood English in any accent. Choosing a bottle of wine for dinner involved having to actually get up and go point to the bottle in the wine cooler. There's a bar here that serves food, but we did not have a chance to try it.

    When booking, be aware that Great Southern has a website, but is not particularly good about marketing it on search engines. This has led to other Ireland specific travel sites promoting themselves as the booking agent for Great Southern, and these sites will have the highest results in Google. Without paying careful attention, I found I had booked a room online at a rate that included an immediate, non-refundable 25-Euro handling fee from the website. When I did finally find the Great Southern website, the lowest rate was, you guessed it, 25-Euros less.

    This is "excellence"?


    I chose this hotel for our last nate largely for its location and price (one of the cheapest, at least for a party of 3), but also because it appeared to be of recent construction and so I presumed it would be quiet and (importantly) air-conditioned.

    We were all disappointed. Not only no air, but not even a fan, such that we had to leave the window open all night (and it only opened a couple inches). That meant not only the highway and airport noise (including loud pages, perhaps from the taxi stand adjacent) but also the regular use of the recycling and garbage facilities right under our window, starting around 6:20 a.m.! There was also notable noise from within the hotel; in particular the room doors into the hallway slam shut with a bang -- a particular annoyance given the many late arrivals and early departures at this airport-oriented hotel. (And this wasn't just inconsiderate guests slamming their door -- on leaving I let go of the door with it open less than 2 inches, yet it made a very loud "whack!" when it shut.)

    The bathroom was adequate but nothing special. The curtain was missing 3 rings; when we got there they had "solved" this problem by doubling up curtain holes on one ring, such that you couldn't extend the curtain fully across the shower and the entire bath got wet! For my shower I decided to keep the bath dry and so undid their handiwork -- this meant that only every other shower curtain hole was supported by a ring, but at least the floor was dry. The bottom line, though, is that it shouldn't have been like this, at a hotel of any calibre let alone one that professes to be an exemplary Irish hotel provider.

    Good Airport Hotel


    This is a good airport hotel with free shuttle. rooms are completely soundproofed. Therea are a couple of restuarants and a lively bar

    Fairly standard airport hotel


    First room was reasonable but dated, and the promised Internet access didn't work - so they moved me to a refurbished executive room which was very nice indeed. Convenient location with a shuttle bus to the airport.

    Nice hotel


    We enjoyed our short stay at this hotel. Compared to some of the other hotels we stayed in this one was superior but the price was also a lot higher. Its convenient to the Airport and the staff was friendly and helpful. Our breakfast was included and it was awesome- a huge breakfast buffet.

    Not what I expected


    I stayed at this Hotel for one night in early June (as I was catching a early morning flight the following morning) Unfortunately this hotel is not four star. Ok, the lobby was nice, staff friendly etc but the room was not as good. You cannot "dress" the hotel to be four star with nice staff etc when you've got (in the room) Dirty stains (black) on red carpet, dirty glasses, outdated bathroom etc.

    Maybe we got an older room, but will be staying at the Holiday Inn the next time round.

    Good facilities, good treatment by personnel


    Staff very accommadating and helpful. We came in and booked without prior reservation for two rooms.The rooms were neat and clean, the beds comfortable. There were no problems checking in or out. Porters were readily available, helpful and cheerful.

    ... We learned so much about the history of Ireland and their royalty, and we had the price large of enjoying the beautiful architecture of their time. Not to mention we got to explore books from around the world dating back to the BC. I feel like this week we have seen so much of Dublin, but I can't get enough. We have seen so many buildings, local shops, museums and parks, but there is so much left to see and I hope I get the chance to see it ...
