Stillorgan Park Hotel
Travel Blogs from Dublin
The ship pulled in and we finally got off. We got another passport stamp to add to our lists (yay!) Logan was able to get some time at sea, which is something he has missed since he left the navy, and I got to go on a huge ferry for the first time! It was a successful trip.
At the dock the only options for transport were …
... that night, we got up well rested and Devon showed us around a small town called Howth. I didn't know what to expect; all Devon said in her description of the town was "nature". It was definitely nature and it was fantastic, my only complaint being how incredibly wrong I dressed that day. It was very hot, we were hiking cliffs with wonderful views and rocks under my feat every second and what was I wearing? A pair of black yoga pants, a cute top ...
Ship docked in Dublin at noon, but watching it come into port was sensational. The way the big ship is manoeuvred into the port is amazing. It turned, with the help of two tug boats, who work very hard,to back into the dock so we were facing forward when we left at 10.15pm. The daylight is quite long here with sunrise at 5.09am and sunset at 9.09pm
Left on a tour bus to visit the sights of ...
... sceneries minutes away from Dublin. This country is not making it easy for me to hate it.
Got back to the house, and Eric cooks us his delicious Risotto. Lauren, if you read this, I think you need to ask for it more when he's in NYC! It’s worth it!)
The next day, got up, packed my stuff, said farewell to our hosts (which by the way if you read this, Aoife and Joe, you guys have been great hosts and I truly invite you back to Canada ...
Had the Saturday to myself to drive the car back to donegal left about 10.30 and thank goodness for the GPS as getting out of Dublin was confusing. The roads are really quite small and seem to not follow any logic although I did instruct to bypass any tollways. The back ways are so much more interesting and a better insight into the real Ireland. A long trip ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Stillorgan Park Hotel Dublin
Stayed there for 2 nights. Staff were nice and helpfull, rooms were clean.
Aircoach/Dublin bus stop outside hotel. Would stay again.
Fantastic quality hotel
This hotel made our stay in Dublin, although a 15-20 min bus journey from centre of town (bus stop directly ouside hotel), the hotel was faultless. Immaculate modern room, tastfull decor and a real professional attitude from staff made staying in hotel a joy. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, also it is constructing a spa which will be finished in a few months so the facillities will get even better.
Hotel is lively at weekends, private functions and weddings but all finish for about 1am
Stillorgan Park pampers Texans
Wow! A Texan's (and anyone's) dream hotel come true! New(ish), super clean, quality amenities and Irish-friendly staff! Having been very disappointed with the "air-conditioning" featured at the 4 star K+K George Hotel in London, I was expecting the same in Dublin. Wrong! Not only was it real (as cold as you want it) air-conditioning, the entire Stillorgan Park experience was most satisfying. Great location - the Air Coach bus dropped us off in front of the hotel and the return pickup was just across the (very busy) street. Dublin Bus used the same stops which we rode into the City Centre for our site-seeing and back again. We called National Car Rental, which was a mile or two further north of us, and they came to pick us up and took us to their office. (Their in person rates were much cheaper than those we encountered online.) The hotel had tons of free parking. Our great Internet room rate, included a "full Irish breakfast" of wonderfully prepared food and a wide assortment from which to choose. The hotel's staff was gracious, but not overly fussy. They were eager to answer all questions and provided suggestions and directions. I hate to give such a positive report for fear there won't be any vacancies the next time I want to go, but they've earned it. I have learned too much useful information from the posts of other Tripadvisor members, so it is my pleasure and duty to provide you with a summary of our experience.

We stayed at Stillorgan Park june 6-9, 2005. This hotel is the perfect spot just outside the city. We took the main road in and were able to park right near Grafton St for all the sightseeing. Too easy to even get lost. This hotel has it's own car park which is a plus. My parents had a family room(153) which was huge. The first night my husband, 11 month old daughter and I stayed in a room(274) with a double bed. It was nice but small with a cot, stoller and all our luggage. The hotel was booked because there was a marathon that weekend. The next day we were able to be moved to a family room(270). This was even bigger than my parents room having separate areas with 2 televisions. I believe we were helped by Emma but I can't really remember as it was the last 3 days of a 2 week vacation. She was very helpful and friendly. We didn't get a chance to eat there but the menus looked quite good.
went to the skillorgan for valentine weekend hotel was lovely they are building a leisure centre at the back of the hotel this didnot affect us at all lots of buses to dublin 3 40 euro have the correct money as the driver cant take notes you willenjoy this hotel would go back there again
Right side of dublin town, near dundrum
I found this four star hotel on my travels. It is perfect for travelling to wexford and wicklow. You will be near to the largest shopping centre in Ireland at Dundrum. It has parking also. I found it on ----.
We stayed at the Stillorgan Park Hotel in August, 2004 and were very impressed. We were worried that the hotel would be sub-par because we got a very cheap rate on it but we could not have been more wrong. We walked into the lobby wondering if we were in the right place. The hotel is a first class hotel - - spacious rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, good breakfast (included in the price). While the location is not the greatest because there are no restaurants right near it (other than in the hotel itself), it IS on a bus line going to the center of town and the buses come frequently. It's also on the "Air Coach" line which has buses going to and from the airport (supposedly every 15 minutes). If you do want to eat at the hotel, there is a bar featuring basic meals and a very good (if expensive) restaurant.
Have stayed in Stillorgan Park Hotel on different occassions, have also dined there on trips to Dublin. We found the Hotel to be of excellent standard i.e. bedrooms, restaurant, bar etc. The food is of a high standard and the staff have been very efficient and friendly.
Stayed at this hotel for the weekend in April. Excellent Hotel, friendly atmosphere, spacious bedrooms and public areas. Great food-Purple Sage restaurant is a must. Check their website for great rates, which include dinner. Location is out of the city with a good bus service direct to the centre-St Stephen's Green!. A car would be advisable for any other travel than to the centre of the city. Highly recommended!
