"Best breakfast of any hotel"
Overall a great hotel in all respects but the thing that sets it apart is the breakfast. Well worth the extra 12 euro for fruit, honeycomb with yogurt, full Irish fry up with eggs done any way you want.
"Great Room, Terrible Breakfast"
When you think of the Hilton, your first thought is of the excellent breakfast buffet they offer worldwide. This was not the case with the Hilton Dublin Kilmainham. A small selection of hot food and instead of their usual very tasty hash browns and waffles, we were greeted with roast potatoes......for breakfast! No croissants but instead there was sliced bread....
"Perfect stay for gluten-free vegetarian"
We stayed for 3 nights. The first day was rainy and we spent it inside the hotels restaurant. The international stuff made this time to something special. Fast, obliging, chatty and full with wonderful recommendations for gluten-free vegetarian snacks. The room was clean and the bed really comfy. Breakfast offered a wide range of gluten-free vegetarian food.
"Lovely experience "
My family and I stayed at the Hilton in Kilmainham and we were. It disappointed our rooms were spotless with lovely comfy beds and the kids loved the large screen tv in their room. The staff were very pleasant and helpful with any of our little requests for the kids and we had a ball in the leisure centre to top off our stay, I'll certainly be staying again when in Dublin
"Satisfactory for a one-night stay"
The Good: - The hotel is clean, modern and well furnished. The room that we stayed in was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. - Underground car park is handy and secure. At €12 for overnight parking it was most reasonable. - For those wanting to sightsee around Dublin, the major open-top bus tour companies (red, green and yellow buses) all stop right outside the front of the hotel at Kilmainham Gaol. If you buy an all-day hop-on-hop-off bus ticket, this is an interesting and cheap enough way to get around the city and back to the hotel again during the day. - Reception staff are excellent and well-informed. We were looked after by Emma upon check-in and departure and she was fantastic. - Prices in the hotel bar are very reasonable and the bar staff were excellent. The Bad: - The bath/shower wasn't great. The plug needed to be manually held open to allow the water to drain out of the tub - and as the shower was in the bathtub, this quickly turned a quick shower into an unwanted bath experience. The Ugly: - Breakfast was an absolute disgrace to Hilton standards. I'm more than happy to pay the price of a Hilton, hot breakfast, knowing that I'm getting an excellent buffet with a range of different options. What we got at Kilmainham Hilton excelled both in its limitations and blandness. I don't eat meat - but even I could feel the discontent amongst other guests at the shortage of bacon at the hot breakfast buffet. Other Hiltons that I have stayed at offer a vegetarian hot buffet, with veggie sausages, etc. I could accept that this one didn't offer the same options, but I can't accept the congealed baked beans, the lack of cooked mushrooms and the pre-prepared, roast (bizarre') potatoes in place of the expected hash browns. It's like they got their order sheet wrong during the week and had to nick some of the previous night's dinner ingredients to make up for the lack of breakfast options. Fine, I thought. I'll skip out on the hot food and just carb it out for breakfast. Over to the bread section... Croissants' No. Rolls' Of course not. But if you want some good old, sliced, white bread (the type you'd grab on the way home from work - not freshly baked) then eat your heart out. Perhaps it was because it was a Sunday - the staff were as attentive as the food selection - but for Hilton I just don't think that's a valid excuse. Disappointed to say the least. Save the money and eat out for breakfast if you're staying over the weekend.
