Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Dublin Airport Swords
I stayed here for one night recently as I was visiting a friend who just had a baby and didn't want to burden her by staying in her house. Anyway my husband, myself and our two kids got a beautiful room with two double beds. When we got there we asked for a cot and one of the housekeeping staff promptly arrived to our room with a travel cot, changing mat and bottle warmer for the baby. She put it together for us, got us special sheets and a lovely little quilt too. I was very impressed by the efficiency and level of service. The hotel was very quite and even though our room was on the front of the hotel we heard absolutey no noise from the road during the night. It's in a great location for the airport and was very easy to find from the directions the hotel gave us. The decor is modern and bright and all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We had a great breakfast the next morning too. The breakfast is a bit steep at €11.95 but the two boys ate as well and they only charged us for the adults food. Plus we only paid €89 for the room so it really was fantastic value overall. There is plenty of parking too, with entrances at both the front and back of the hotel so you weren't too far away from one wherever you parked. I really cannot find any fault with it. 5 out of 5.
Loved my stay
Booked this hotel a few days before setting off and with some trepidation due to the tight timescales i was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Tulip Inn.
The free airport to hotel bus runs every 30mins and the journey was very quick and comfortable. (Tip: maybe phone hotel to check when the next bus is to arrive instead of waiting at the airport car park which is being renovated and feeling a bit neglected.)
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and answered all queries about the hotel or Dublin with a smile.
Only downside is the distance to the City Centre, a few buses run from outside the hotel and run frequently but the journey is about 40 minutes to town. The journey is worth it to sleep and relax in a great hotel after a long day - but definitely will find yourself confined to staying out all day and night with the prospect of nipping back to the hotel for a clean up unattractive.
Despite the distance to be travelled i had a fantastic time in Dublin.
Das Hotel eignet sich hervorragend für Personen, die einen sehr frühen Abflug am nächsten Tag haben und daher die Nähe des Flughafens bevorzugen. Zum Flughafen-Terminal benötigt man incl. Rückgabe des Mietwagens und Fussmarsch zum Gebäude max. 15 Minuten.
Das Personal an der Rezeption war sehr zuvorkommend, freundlich und hat beim Checkin die wichtigsten Dinge abgefragt (Raucher/Nichtraucher; Abendessen erwünscht (Tischreservierung); Weckruf erwünscht; Shuttle zum Flughafen benötigt). Der Checkout war ebenfalls problemlos und das Personal freundlich.
Die Zimmer sind sehr komfortabel, geräumig und modern. Man fühlt sich von der ersten Sekunde an "zu Hause". Die Betten liessen keine Wünsche offen und auch das Bad war hell und sauber.
Im Hause selbst gibt es nur ein Restaurant, welches wir nicht in Anspruch genommen haben.
5 Autominuten entfernt in Swords findet man eine Auswahl von Fastfood Restaurants (McDo, Pizza, Asia) und 2 Pubs.
Fazit: selten waren Preis/Leistung so angenehm, wie im Tulip Inn Dublin Airport! Wir kommen bei Gelegenheit gerne wieder.
Absolutely Loved it- Comfy and Clean!
I've just returned from a 4 week tour through Europe. We started in Dublin, after a 9 hour flight from Canada, plus a 4 hour layover and 2 hour flight from London. We arrived at 7 pm, and I knew before we left that I would just want a shower and a bed. So, despite it's distance from the city center, I booked this hotel. it was fabulous! We stayed three nights total.
It's about a 20 minute bus ride into the city center, but despite this, I'd stay there again next time I go. The comfort was well worth the bus, which you can catch 1 block away, across from the gas station. It was just over a euro each.
The bed was super comfy, and we had the best sleep ever. The bathroom was modern, newly tiled. It looked clean and comfy, and the shower was hot, with lots of pressure.
The staff were incredibly helpful. We ate in the restaurant, which was a bit expensive, but the food was pretty good. There is a gas station across the highway, which has coffee and pastries for breakfast- thus, we didnt eat breakfast at the hotel. I don't know what else to ssay- there was even a shuttle from the airport, which we only had to wait 5 minutes for. It was probably the best hotel we stayed in, out of all 8!
Needed an Airport Hotel
This was a last minute booking due to an early flight home. What the Tulip Inn lacks is morning transportation to the airport. You have to reserve and pay for a cab. Other airport hotels offer 24 hour shuttle, not so the Tulip Inn.
The room was clean, the bed comfy, and the bathroom very clean. The Wi-Fi worked after about 20 minutes of doing all possible settings to my laptop.
The front desk staff was pleasant. It's about everything you could ever want in an airport hotel, except for the lack of a shuttle. The room was even quiet.
I stayed in this hotel for just one night. Beautiful hotel, lovely food. Very reasonably priced. Definately intend on staying here again.
I spent just one night in the Tulip Inn recently and it was a very positive experience.
From making the initial reservation, by phone, to check out,was all handled most efficiently and with a friendly attitude from all. The receptionists were very helpful regarding any queries we had.
Our room had 2 double beds and was spotlessly clean, the bathroom was beautiful, also in pristine condition. Powerful shower. Very quiet location despite being near airport and busy road.
The only one negative thing was that after a day in the zoo, our children were exhausted and just wanted pizza and bed. However, we were informed that only food purchased in the hotel restaurant could be taken to the rooms. The children would have been too disruptive to take to the hotel restaurant so we had to take the tired and hungry mites to a pizzeria.
This wouldn't put me off however, its the hotels' policy so that is fair enough.
I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.
We finished up our 10 day trip to Ireland with a stay at the Tulip Inn Dublin. We wanted to be close to the Airport for our early morning trip home. Let me tell you, great accomodations. Very clean and modern. Great water pressure in the shower. Hotel restaurant was excellent. We stayed at 5 star hotels in Dublin City Center and Kilkenny along our journey and none compared to the Tulip Inn accomodations My only wish was that the Tulip Inn was located closer to Dublin city. It is very close to the M50, so you're really not that far from the city. Very close to the airport as well for less than 95 euro.
Great Hotel !
We stayed in the Tulip Inn, Dublin last Friday for a Robbie Williams concert - it was a lovely hotel and better than we had expected. It is very modern, immaculately clean, the room was tastefully decorated with luxury bathroom, quality fixtures and fittings, lovely comfortable beds, it was very quiet indeed despite being next to the airport (you would never know). There was a good selection of bits to make coffee etc.
We didn't have any meals except breakfast but that was great! Enormous variety of different choices and very helpful staff.
The shuttle bus is also very efficient which turns up regularly to take you free to and from the airport.
I would definately stay again !
Good value, Clean, friendly and close by the airport
Just got back from a long weekend in Dublin staying at this hotel whilst attending a Bon Jovi concert at Croke Park.
When I was looking for a hotel this was the only reasonably priced one available so before we arrived I was a bit wary about why it might not be full. However, on arrival I was very impressed. Staff friendly and very knowledgable - even letting us check in when we arrived on an early flight a full 4 hours before the official check in time. Room was immacutaley clean and well equipped including hairdryer and good quality iron/ironing board.
Was way better quality than other similarly priced hotels I have stayed in.
Great links to the airport and city centre and also close to the motorway making it easy to get to places out of town. Bus stop into town is just on main road more or less outside hotel.
Would definitley stay here again. Only slight negative which stops me giving it 5 stars was that the evening meal we had there was a bit bland and processed. I have eaten worse but was more "pub grub" than hotel quality. Drinks reasonably priced for a hotel.
hotel staff also really helpful when trying to contact my husband when we had mix up over meeting times post concert - when I rang hotel they even went and looked for him in the hotel bar for me!

After our almost 7 hours flight, we are happy to arrive in Ireland. We are tired and hungry. Airline food is never something super great but Aerlingus' showing on this flight was not a hit with our family. We mostly ran out of our picnic take-along food. We are really looking forward to our short visit on our layover to the nearby town of Swords.

Although the weather hasn't been very great, a couple of weekends ago we went on a lovely cliff walk in Wicklow county with Kole's boss Sunder. I overdressed thinking it would be cold, but Kole and Sunder dressed appropriately. There was zero wind and it was about 50 ...
Landed in Dublin and was the first in line at customs… Attendant asked me how long I was going to stay and I said seven months? Eight months? Could be three weeks… He then looked at me like I was an idiot. He said it raised serious threats that I haven't booked a flight back. After that he told me to go sit down and wait. After two hours of waiting I finally realized what I did wrong. Then I found him from hiding and told him ...

Nothing for it but to contact the embassy.
They reply reasonably promptly, but then we discover an Iranian trait, that pops up over and over again in the future. Ask 3/4 questions and get 1/2 answers or partial answers. No big problem though and we are told to just call in.

The next day we had a bit of a sleep in, before setting off on our way to Killarney with a short stop for a few breakfast and lunch supplies at the supermarket. Our first port of call was Blarney Castle (just outside of Cork), the home of the "Blarney Stone", which if you kiss is said to give the lucky person the "Gift of the Gab". Basically the ...
