    Got this hotel last minute for great price with It's location was great just outside of the city centre but with excellent transport links. Would be ideal for anybody going to the Aviva stadium as it is just beside it. Nice hotel, staff friendly and good bar. We stayed for a few beer in bar before heading into the city. Comfortable stay and would recommend this hotel.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sandymount Hotel Dublin

    Nice place


    This hotel was slightly out of the city, but not by much, and a walk from the bus stop. Try asking a local how many stops until you get to Landsdowne Rd because that's the stop you need to take. Cross the street and go past the stadium.. keep going (should look like a residential area) and there it is on the right. The hotel offers a quaint room with more than adequate spacing and friendly staff. The room we stayed in was ensuite and everything advertised was available. It was slightly mucky but we informed the check-in clerk and it was rectified immediately. They even allowed us to check in early to catch some ZZZ's before we went out for the day. The bistro/bar downstairs offered a variety of foods at reasonable prices. I have even sent my Mom to this hotel so... it's trustworthy. Dublin is a wonderful city with quite a few places to visit. My recommendation is to visit the Jameson Distillary first to obtain a wonderful (free) map of the city.. the best one we found. It does pay to plan out where you are going in this city because everything is within walking distance, but plan to walk a lot! Have fun!

    A Very Good Basic Hotel


    I stay in the Mount Herbert regularly as I am often in Dublin on business and it is within 15 minutes walk of where I work. It is a bright and spacious hotel with ample car parking. The rooms are basic but comfortable. Breakfast is served from 7am (but I've often turned up at 6.45 with no problem) and there is a good range of juices, cereals, fruit and hot food. Later on in the day the bar serves good food up to 10pm and is very reasonable price-wise. It is situated in a secluded street near the Landsdowne Road football stadium and is very quiet at night thus ensuring a good rest. It's not a place I'd necessarily bring my wife for a weekend away but for business travellers or those on a tight budget it's ideal.

    Rather disappointing


    Got a single room rate, including breakfast, through laterooms for E79 which was fairly good.

    Hotel well situated for Aircoach and the Dart although Dart presently not running at weekends due to line improvements.

    Bedroom small with small bed, clean but rather disappointing. Breakfast good with an excellent fruit salad.

    Staff problems noted, saw front desk staff in verbal arguments with other staff on two occasions over luggage and room service.

    3 star just about, certainly no more.

    Just OK


    This is an old victorian style hotel, just outside of Dublin. Our room was very large and it had basic furniture. The breakfast was good. We paid $94 for a double including breakfast. It has free parking. Not a luxury hotel but overall good value. The price is very reasonable. If you are price conscious, go for Mount Herbert...

    Decent enough for the price!!!


    The hotel had an offer of 39.50 Euro per person B&B sharing during the month of January, 2005....that is like 28...incredible offer for a hotel in Ballsbridge, the swankiest district of Dublin!!!...especially for a weekend night which was when we were staying...a Saturday!!!

    We had a triple room...nothing fancy...but, clean enough. The bar's nice and trendy enough...breakfast was grand...plenty of parking behind the hotel, so cars are safe.

    Definitely would consider staying at the hotel again if I'm out solely to party in Dublin!!!...especially if any similar offers were on!!!!

    Quiet, Reasonable Hotel


    Room was quite spacious for a double (included an extra single bed). Water from taps was scaldingly hot and slightly brown - some renovation work was underway to the restaurant which may have been to blame. Breakfast was OK but choice was a bit limited. Setting was peaceful (except the two hours when a football match was taking place at Lansdowne Road 100 yards away - but that was to be expected). Convenient for the DART into Dublin centre (6 minute ride and 6 euros for a three day ticket). Generally clean and comfortable and decent value for the price (79 euros a night for B&B for two) and the staff were friendly and helpful. Some local info / guides etc would have been useful in reception.

    Quiet Hotel Away from the noise of the pubs


    We had a wonderful experience at the Mount Herbert. It was our first stopping point when we arrived in Ireland. We took the Aircoach bus from the airport to the Pembroke Road stop. It was a walk of three long blocks to the Mt. Herbert. Our family room had a double bed and two singles, perfect for our 10 and 11 year olds. The restaurant was closed the three nights we stayed, but the bar was serving dinner. The food was very good. The full Irish Breakfast each morning was also good. The restaurant overlooks a very beautiful garden. There is a playhouse and playground equipment in the garden for younger children. I can not get over how quiet it was at this hotel. The DART station is within easy walking distance. We also took taxies and it was between 7 and 10 Euros for the four of us to go back and fourth to the center of Dublin. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Mount Herbert to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet upscale neighborhood.

    Just loved it!


    Wanting just a wee break away for a few nights with our son and toddler grandaughter and attracted by the fair price and the fact of a garden for our grandaughter. We set off. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived until we left, friendly, helpful and also professional. The triple room with a cot, whilst a little on the small side was clean and comfortable. The restaurant was excellent and very child friendly. The Dart is only a few minutes walk away and took us into the centre of Dublin - no need to worry about where to park the car etc.

    We hope to return again and again.

    Still going strong!


    It had been some time since I stayed at the Mount Herbert, so when I returned for one night recently I was interested to see if it was still the same. I was not disappointed. It is not "Grade A" but a very good B+. The rooms vary but most are large and airy. All are very clean and comfortable, with all facilities you might require. I note that they do now provide tea and coffee making in rooms. Breakfast is very good. Location is quite near city centre. The DART (rapid train to city) station is a few minutes walk away. There is a very quite atmosphere as there is no bar. Location is in an upmarket residential part of Dublin. Many singles stay here. Prices are usually OK. You may be able to get offers.

    Lovely, quiet place, but very near the city centre


    It's a very quiet place, well situated, quite near the city centre, but into a very peaceful zone. The instalations and facilities are very good, and the staff is very kind.

    Despite our desire to lay down once we arrived at the Sandymount hotel aka our home for the next three days, we opted for a 15km (or so) walk around the city to "stretch our legs". Thirsty we turned into The Ferryman Pub right by the harp bridge for our first pint of Guinness - yummy. The weather being beautifully dry and warm made bridging time …

Side note on the Trim Castle tour. Our guide made fun of Notre Dame. He said it was in America, based on a Cathedral in Paris, France, and yet called themselves the Fighting Irish. He couldn't understand it for the life of him. That's why Go ...

    ... a really nice place and they made people leave so that we had a really nice central table. Afterwards we wandered around and just stopped in different bars here and there. We did find the local bars but they weren’t terribly welcoming. It wasn’t like an aggressive unwelcome, it was just obviously a local bar not looking for tourists and we were 4 Americans. We got back to the ship around 1AM.

O'Connell Street is very wide with generous sidewalks on both sides, four lanes for vehicles and a median with historical and not so historical statues. Meanwhile David went on his own tour of Dublin covering those areas of interest to him. We reconnected for supper at Toscana for a great Italian ...
