Location is half way betwwen airport and city centre. Hotel is nice and clean. Staff were all friendly. Bar is a good size, comfortable and the Guinness was good. Room was comfortable. Bathroom had a large walk in shower. Sleep quality was good. Do not expect any nice views. Overall a good stay and would use again.

The taps in the bathroom were stiff and difficult to adjust and the water splashed everywhere. I reported to the reception but nothing was done. The bath tub had moldy patches. The shampoo and shower gel had very strange smell (they were old?)

Good morning, We are sorry you had a bad experience with the taps, this has since been fixed. The Shampoo & shower gel should be fresh as they are changed daily. We will check with housekeeping to see if maybe there a problem with this batch. Please contact us directly if you are returning & we will make sure you are looked after. Kind regards Team Skylon

I took my girlfriend Charlotte to Dublin for two nights the first night being her birthday staying at the Dublin Skylon Hotel.....and the second night...well put it this way.....I brought her home as my fiancée!!! ❤️ I had made the hotel aware of my plan beforehand and they really did pull out all the stops. They upgraded our room, we had chocolates and flowers in the room on arrival and a complimentary glass of Prosecco in the evening, they’d even decorated our room with balloons and banners. The reception staff Hazel and Paul are a credit to the hotel and both went the extra mile to make our stay so memorable. They were aware of the proposal so again decorated our room when we’d gone out. On returning we received a bottle of Prosecco. The morning after I’d proposed we were treated to breakfast in bed with champagne. All the staff were friendly, so helpful on advice about the tourist things/getting around. I cannot praise the staff enough. I’d have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to stay in. We were treated like “Royalty” and will we never forget the kindness we were shown. The hotel and staff will be the talking point for many years to come. The hotel is beautiful and spotlessly clean. The food is excellent, and I said the staff were exceptional. Thank you so much Dublin Skylon!!

I always enjoy my stay in the Skylon. It is very comfortable, clean and the special touch of water and crisps add to the comfort. The staff are very friendly, welcoming, helpful and obliging. I hope to stay there many times in the future. Miriam Pollard.

All the hotel staff were very helpful and could not do enough for us. Very informative about travel around Dublin. Always smiling. Having some renovations done at the hotel, but did not spoil our stay will definitely stay here again.

Lovely hotel outside city centre

Hotel was lovely, great location as was within walking distance to everything we needed. Staff were happy to help and friendly. Only negative point, when checking in we were told room would be ready in half an hour and told to take a seat and wait. We thought that meant we would be told when the room was ready instead we waited for an hour before we went to reception again and found out the room had been ready for a while.
