    This hotel was not in the best part of Dublin, unless you were going to the Gaelic games, as that staduim was really close. The hotel itself was very nice. Great room, good food. Room even had a pants press. Bathroom was very large with a huge tub. If we were going back to Dublin, we'd stay there again.

    I am very impressed with the hotel so far. the location is a little away from the city centre - but it was an easy 15 minute or so. If you are attending an event @ Croke Park Stadium - it is literally across the street!!! The service here was amazing! Breakfast was fantastic - lots of choices - very tasty. The room was a good size on the Executive Floor and I had access to the Executive Lounge which was nice to be able to get water, tea and light snacks throughout the day. Loved the cookies!!! There was also an ice machine on this floor - which I loved!! I did not however, love the water pressure in the shower....took a long time to rinse my long hair. There are 2 computer terminals available in the lobby that are free to use - but please be aware if someone is waiting...try not to monopolize the time - like one lady did on several occasions! I definitely recommend this hotel if you don't mind a 15 minute walk to O'Connell Street. The hotel is very close to Connelly Station where I departed from to head to Belfast. Excellent choice for me!

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Croke Park Hotel Dublin

    Impressive

    from

    Stayed the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of February. Hotel is contemporary but very welcoming. Bar has large impressive feature fire and cleverly designed screen showing major events. Dined in the Bistro on the first evening. Food delicious (try the cannon of lamb!)and staff very friendly and efficient. Bedrooms were the most impressive, best nights sleep I have ever had, so much so that I have purchased a bed from the supplier today. Underfloor heating in bathrooms a nice touch. Walked into the main shopping area on Saturday, took approximately 15 minutes. Booked to go again in April.

    Nice Stay

    from

    the hotel is a great place to stay, secure car park, nice rooms and the food is divine!!!

    i did have a few problems when i stayed though, i never recieved my wake-up call and so was late for an appointment in the city, also no newspaper and the bath worked the opposite to how it should have, which ended up with me burning myself!

    the staff though were friendly and helpful, i have stayed here before and definitely will again!

    Thumbs Up.

    from

    My Husband, two girls, and myself stayed in room 341, third floor, November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and we enjoyed our stay, immensely. We were very impressed with the friendly helpful staff, at the front desk, and the cleanliness of the hotel. The bedroom was very spacious, with two double beds, and a single bed. The bathroom had bath, plus seperate shower, and the underfloor heating created great comfort. The breakfast was excellent, and offered great choice. There is so much to do in Dublin, we were disappointed that our stay wasnt longer. We have recommended Jurys to several of our friends, and we hope to go back again some time.

    Great Hotel

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed at Croke park hotel in October 2005. I loved this hotel. It was modern, clean, and service was fantastic. Best of all was the heated bathroom floors! I loved this feature. The rooms were clean and the beds in of the most comfortable in the 5 places we stayed in through out Ireland. This is a very modern, secure hotel. You need your key to access the elevators, get in and out of the garage, and keep your lights in your room turned on. Yep that is what I said to keep your lights in your room turned on you slide your key into a little slot. If you don't do this, your lights will turn off in about 10 minutes. It is also good because you always know where your key is.

    The walk to Temple bar is about 15-20 minutes. I never felt like I was in danger. Granted there are not as many streetlights as downtown, but just because it was a little dark I did not feel I was going to be jumped at any moment. Also if you are going to anything at Croke Park Stadium it is directly across the street. Parking is included with your stay at the hotel; it is in a very well lit, secure parking garage. Do like I did just park your car while in Dublin and walk.

    The front desk people were extremely helpful and when I had a problem with my bill from the previous stay a week earlier (travel agent mistake not theirs) they corrected the problem and I had no problem with them returning the amount. They also recommended a place to eat that was open late. Indian food. I did not expect the front desk people to remember my name seeing that this is a modern hotel and all, but they did. Upon returning from dinner they asked how it was and then told me it was their favorite place to eat in Dublin and they ate there at least 1 a month.

    The one lower point is the breakfast. I was not impressed and the amount I had to pay I thought was a little high. It was not a bad meal, just nothing special.

    Heated floors!! Yeah

    Loved it

    from

    just home from a 3 day break at jurys croake park we loved it. New hotel every thing fresh, staff excellent, location out of town, we had a car and used it,to use a taxi would be just as cheap as car parking charge.We had our 9 yr old son with us not a lot in hotel for him to do but what hotel has.Staff were so friendly and helpful.We will be going to dublin every month for a while and we will be using this hotel.

    Lovely Hotel, Awful Location for Tourists

    from

    This is a new hotel so it is absolutely beautiful. It has the nicest, friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever come across in a hotel, especially Sandra on reception. Rooms are lovely - widescreen LCD tv, air conditioning, beautiful bathrooms with fantastic separate bath and shower. Internet access, desk and office chair. Nice recliner too. Shower is large - plenty of room to move around. Executive rooms are worth the EUR20 extra - you get a much bigger bed, bathrobes and access to executive lounge.

    Restaurant is nice - food is ok. I've stayed here 3 times so far and the quality varies. The Irish maitre d' is fantastic - warm welcome and professional. The Eastern European one is cool and aloof - shouted (literally) after me that I hadn't signed my bill, when I had. Only bit of attitude I came across in this hotel.

    Beautiful bar with huge TV screen over an amazing fire. Complimentary newspapers. Nice Guinness. Average Irish coffees.

    There is a gym also.

    But if you are coming to this hotel from outside Ireland, be careful. I know Dublin and this hotel is NOT in a great area. North of it is fine - Drumcondra is a nice suburb of Dublin. South of it is tough north inner city Dublin - check out the council houses over the canal. Very rough area. I personally would not walk in this neighbourhood during the day never mind at night. Get a taxi. It should cost EUR7 into the city and is worth it. On the plus side, the hotel is 10 seconds walk from Croke Park so the BEST location if you are going to a match or concert there.

    Despite all this, I would recommend this hotel. They're offering good deals at the moment because it's new. So use the money you save to GET A TAXI!

    A nice hotel, a distance from city center.

    from

    We stayed at this hotel Oct. 20-24, 2005. The establishment was finished and the staff very courteous and helpful. The hotel was very nice with many nice amenities. Unless you're staying in a room at the front of the building with a view of Croke Park across the street, the views are not worth looking out the window. The hotel is further from city center than the adverts would suggest. We had no problem getting around using public transport (bus, DART and Suburban rail, taxi) however. We didn't eat at the hotel, choosing to dine locally instead. One disappointment was the charge for "in room broadband internet". We did enjoy our stay here as we got an excellent deal during their opening, but would probably choose an establishment more centrally located next time.

    Love Jurys

    from

    Stayed at this hotel for our 25th Wedding anniversary 16th -20th October. Were given a room with king sized bed, loved the under floor heating in bathroom, beds turned down every night with bathrobes and chocolates left for us on the bed. No problems at all during our stay except could do with a waste bin in the bathroom and when lying in the bath you tend to be gazing at the underneath of the sink, bad design on someones part. The maid changed our towels every morning and night. The hotel is situated opposite Croke Park stadium (well worth a visit) and in an industrial park area, but we walked back to the hotel every night 20-25 minutes from Temple Bar and did not have any problems, there is students accommodation not far and also a Police Station so although area might look run down we did not feel threatened or uncomfortable in any way. Taxi from airport cost 25 euros and is worth not having the hassle. We paid 47 a night for the room it was a special offer and must admit had a very good deal. The hotel is new and modern and we could not fault anything. Patrick one of the porters is really helpful and all the staff were friendly. We only had a bar meal there at lunch time, the burger was lovely. If you want a great place to eat go to The Shack in Temple Bar opposite Temple Bar Hotel great food, also the Arlington Hotel alongside the Liffey O'connell Street side great irish food carvery not too expensive and good entertainment every night, but you need to reserve a table if you want to go in the evening. Musical Pub Crawl is worth a try but avoid going to see Book of Kells, bit of a rip off. I would recommend this hotel if you don't mind the exercise.

    A Few Teething Problems

    from

    We stayed in this hotel 19th - 21st Sept, it had only opened on the 8th Sept, so I thought 'great, brand new hotel'.

    This is a lovely hotel, very smart, we didn't see or hear any continuing building work, it seemed finished to me.

    There were a few teething problems which the staff sorted out and we got our meal, in the restaurant, on the house.

    It wasn't too much of a walk into the city centre, but not as close as stated in the information about the hotel. We caught a bus from the airport and it was a bit of a walk from the bus stop to the hotel.

    Very smart bar area with a big projection tv screen at one end.

    Helpful staff.

    Even though we had two or three problems, we would stay at this hotel again.

    Give it a few more months, and don't go out walking alone!

    from

    We stayed here from 21-23 September, about two weeks after it opened.

    First things first, this hotel is NOT a ten minute walk from town, as it is advertised. It is in the middle of a pretty rough area of Dublin, and it's a ten minute walk to the nearest bus stop or at least a twenty minute walk to the top of O Connell Street, and you wouldn't want to walk it alone or at night!

    Our problems with this hotel started before we even arrived! We went to Dublin for my birthday, and my partner thought it would be a nice surprise to organise flowers and champagne in the room for when we arrived. He phoned the hotel and they said it wasn't the sort of thing they could do. Yet, when we arrived at the hotel there is a brochure in the room saying you just have to ask the porters if you want flowers delivered. I emailed Jurys to ask about something else, and didn't even get a response.

    We were suitably impressed when we arrived - once you get inside you can forget the area the hotel is in as the entrance is very imposing.

    We had booked a double room so were somewhat surprised to find a single bed in the room in addition to a pretty small double, but the bathroom was good, with a bath and walk in shower. The rooms were ok, but not as good as you would expect for a 4* hotel. The website and the brochure in the room talk about every room having a stereo but we were informed by reception, when we queried where ours was, that they hadn't actually arrived yet.

    Not being quite finished seemed to be a theme with this hotel. There seemed to be lots of random banging and work still going on, which only stopped in early evening after we complained for the third time.

    There was a spectacular view of a building site from our window, and be warned, if you are in a room at the back you will be woken up by the laundry truck at 5am.

    On our first night we were shattered from travelling so decided to have something light to eat in the bar (the hotel has two places to eat - this and the restaurant/bistro). The food here was good, once you managed to get served, which was verging on impossible!

    On our last night it wasn't such a sucess story! We decided to eat in the restaurant and went down there at about 8pm, only to be told that as we hadn't made a dinner reservation IN OUR OWN HOTEL, we couldn't eat. We complained to reception and the sales manager managed to sort out that we could have a meal from the restaurant but we were seated in a deserted side room.

    We noticed that the menu we were handed looked the same as the bar menu we had selected from on our first night and when we queried it we were told that there was a function in the restaurant that night and that everyone who wasn't part of it was being served from the bar menu. So why not tell us this in the first place?!

    To be fair to the hotel they wiped 30 off our bill and recommended a restaurant in town which was excellent, but it was a lot of hassle we didn't need and, with everything else included, it didn't make for a very relaxing break!

    We booked on Lastminute.com so we got a pretty good deal, but not a lot less than what everyone else pays. I don't really feel like we got what we paid for, and I hope all Jurys Hotels aren't like that!

    We have a knack of visiting places during their holidays. In Dublin it was what they called a "Bank Holiday". Odd name, it wasn't just banks, it was everything. Museums, etc. There was a half marathon race that had many streets blocked off.

    Our day was spent getting our rental and getting a GPS that worked. 3 tries and finally it worked. …
