my business trip

Although I could have stayed at a City Centre hotel, my business meeting venue didn't require that. The reception staff were extremely helpful and dealt with any query I had proficiently. The restaurant staff in my opinion were just ok, as I dined twice at the hotel and not one of the staff asked me, during my meal, whether I was enjoying it..........Perhaps that is down to training, but I felt it very unusual not to be asked. I have to travel a lot on business and stay in hotels......yes I would stay again at Tara Towers.

Very Poor

Curtains in bedroom disintegrated when pulled. Area behind bathroom taps underneath shower were filthy, shower curtain was dirty and hairdryer did not work. Bed was clean and room was comfortable and the location was great but I would not recommend it or stay there again

Within easy reach of Dublin centre

A brilliant room overlooking Dublin bay with Howth on the horizon. The hotel and room were well maintained and kept clean throughout, had excellent staff and lovely food, particularly the open breakfasts. Although being 4 mile from Dublin there is an excellent train service just a few minutes walk from the hotel, costing just under €5 return per adult and taking less than 15 minutes to Tara Street Station in central Dublin, just 6 stops away. The Aircoach from Dublin Airport stops right outside the hotel and cost only €16 each return. Locally there is the beach and a large park just down the road.

Very good place

It is an excellent hotel, but rooms facing the street are noisy, and the staff is overworked (a single person at the desk has to deal with everything, phone as well as customers). Cleanliness of the staircase area can be improved. Other than that, rooms are comfortable and the view of the sea fantastic.

Very good value

Location was ideal for ur trip. We were able to get a bus to city centre outside the door no need for car. Staff very helpful. Room was very clean as was hotel even if a coat of paint in the corridoors would not go astray. Ate in the bar and food was very tasty. Excellent value for money

V. good, 2 nights while waiting for flight.

Everything was fine. I had a beautiful view of the sea & sunrise. The food in the pub was good and not over-priced. The busstop was just outside the front door & it took me in to City centre quite quickly, Airport Bus stops there too. My only negative point is that the free WIFI in the lobby, restaurant & pub was not very strong (and this was the case in many places during my 2 months in Ireland)

PERFECT LOCATION FOR AVIVA STADIUM

An easy five minute walk to the Dart station means that you can be at the Aviva or the city centre in minutes. We had a nice fish and chips meal in the bar and the staff were very friendly. Although the outer porch lobby area looks scruffy, along with one of those awful cigarette stubouts, the lobby itself was fine and the room was comfortable and clean.

quiet hotel in a good location.

I stayed one night, I asked for a quiet room which is exactly what I got. The rooms are basic, clean, it is good value for money.
