Not a 4 star....

Posted 19-Nov-2014
A nice hotel - nothing outstanding. A bit outside of Dublin - takes a bit to get to by public transportation. The shopping center down the road is nice.... The beds were very very hard The shower kept going from hot to cold to hot to very hot back to cold without touching it dirty old fan in the room - I guess that is to substitute for not having A/C

Very reasonable & not too far from dublin

Posted 06-Nov-2014
Impressed upon 1st checking in, we was upgraded from a standard room to a penthouse, not sure why but we didn't mind. The room was large, had a full kitchen, washing machine ect, we didn't use these facilities as wasn't expecting them and only stayed for one night, but the extra room size was great. The room was a little rough around the edges, some spilt drink marks on carpets, but for the price really wasn't an issue. Would happily stay again when we visit Dublin again

Comfy beds, slow room service

Posted 04-Nov-2014
Pros: Comfy beds, good location
Cons: The showers. My husband has to fix it as the head was loose.
Location: Close to Liffey Valley shopping centre & other shopping outlets. 20 mins from airport & Dublin zoo.
This was our second stay at the Clarion. We had a family room - 1 double bed & 1 single bed. Very comfy. Could do with another pillow rather than cushions on the bed. Our room over looked the car park. Couldn't hear the neighbours but could hear people going up & down the corridor. Used room service one evening. We didn't have a menu in our room so phoned reception to ask for one & we were sent up a piece of paper with 3 Asian meals & a wine list on it. When I called down & asked for the proper menu. They said they would send one up but we never received one. Rang room service & just ordered a pizza as I knew they served them in the restaurant. Nice but took nearly an hour to arrive & when it did arrive we had no toppings on it even though we had ordered them & been charged for them. Didn't complain as we were so hungry we just ate it. 3€ charge for room service. Didn't use the pool. They had a kids club on but we didn't use it. We would go back again as it was convenient for us - near shopping centre, 20 mins to airport & close to family we were visiting.

Nice hotel for quite vacation out of town.

Posted 13-Sep-2014
After ten day in Dublin city center, it was a great to take 2 days out of town to walk in the country side. The nearest mall is 10 min walk. The restaurant has great Irish meals.

Full disclosure needed

Posted 10-Sep-2014
Pros: Close proximity to Dublin bus line. Free parking. Wireless and comfortable beds.
Cons: Full disclosure that hotel public areas are undergoing renovation.
Location: Near very large shopping mall and easy access to Dublin bus line.
Hotel is undergoing renovation. Main restaurant was closed so dining was done in adjacent breakfast buffet area. We were looking forward to a nice, relaxing dinner but that didn't pan out. Informal facility and smallish round tables more suited to grab and go. Service: substandard. Lighting didn't work properly in room; reported and not repaired after 2 nights. Liquid shower soap and dispenser a great idea but staff should check soap level. We washed with liquid hand soap that was available as none was in the shower. Sink faucet leaked. Front desk clerk Carl at check in was very helpful; the standout of our experience. We did speak with management before leaving and they did remove dinner charge; this was appreciated. But if you are expecting a four star experience, at this moment, move on.
