Comfortable sleep
The Bracken Court Hotel appears to be the only game in town but it’s a good one. Although Balbriggan is somewhat of a rundown village, the walk along the Irish Sea was lovely. The hotel was very nice even though the rooms (drapes, carpets, etc.) could use some updating. The latest investment must’ve been the beds and linens which were great and very comfortable. The restaurants in the Bracken Court Hotel had very tasty food and great service.

The staff was amazing and very helpful. The train/bus station is within walking distance which made getting to Dublin easy (the staff even helped us with bus routes.) If you are looking for a place just outside of Dublin, then this hotel and amazing staff are perfect!

My boyfriend and I checked in, in the evening after a long day of driving. We go to the room open the door and there was a couple already in there, I was mortified. Went downstairs to tell front desk they seemed not so bothered by it. They compensated us with two free drinks and have a different room. I barely had one drink, my boyfriend doesn’t drink. We were pushed into ordering dinner ASAP. Got to the table and the food was already on the table sitting there. Just a mess, not acceptable service. Checked out early morning to catch out flight home and they had put together breakfast for us, which seemed like they ran around collecting what they could and stuff in a paper bag for us.
