"Nice hotel, location a bit out of the way."
We spent a week here and overall enjoyed our stay. The hotel used to be a Four Seasons, but in the last year or so switched over. The hotel itself is nice, with a nice spa and ample grounds to not feel to "locked in" like many city hotels might feel. The food was pretty average. We ate breakfast and dinner there once, as well as ordered room service. It was passable, but not what I would have expected. We upgraded to a Junior Suite, on a suggestion, and we were glad we did. Large room, with awesome bathroom. All the rooms seemed updated. Service was excellent. We had a couple fumbles at check-in, but they worked quickly to correct those. Overall, I would recommend the hotel understanding that you have to walk along way or cab to most everything near city center.
"Faultless from beginning to end."
It really is hard to know where to begin to explain how fabulously well we were looked after whilst staying at the Intercontinental Dublin. Our welcome at check-in was warm and friendly and our room was very well appointed and spacious. We simply loved everything about this hotel from start to finish. Most especially the staff who were absolutely incredible and who had evidently been expertly trained. The food was fantastic and the breakfasts were honestly the best I have experienced in any hotel I have stayed at - and that is saying something! The Intercontinental is not inexpensive but it exudes quality at every turn and is worth every penny. Unfortunately I didn't have time to explore the spa, but will certainly make sure to indulge on my next visit.
"Beautiful weekend break"
Beautiful hotel, came for a night last year. Would defiantly stay with this chain again. Fantastic staff who even helped us with deciding where to go for dinner in town. Breakfast was relaxing and decedent. Defiantly would recommend to everyone! Can get regular buses from just round the corner to town.
"Need to pay attention to detail"
Parking in this hotel is very tight due to location. Check-in was a breeze. Upon going to our room, noticed the hallway rugs were threadbare and ripped in areas. Room was spacious, well furnished, and plenty of outlets for electronics. Bathroom very well done-toilet separate from sink and bathing area. Had both a shower and a separate tub. Tried the food in the pub-excellent, and great gluten free options. Servers in the pub were very attentive. At the breakfast, hot water for tea had dirt flakes come out of the cauldron. Poor flow to the breakfast choices, and needed better gluten free options. The servers were not the "A" team, and felt more like a cafeteria experience. Disappointed in this part of our stay, as we were looking forward to our last breakfast in Ireland.
"A 5 Star Hotel"
This hotel is definitely upscale. We spent three nights at this hotel in a lovely, very comfortable one bedroom suite. We felt like we were treated as "royalty". Anything we needed from the front desk, concierge and restaurant staff was handled quickly and always with a smile. Because the hotel is located a bit out of the city, it was more convenient to dine at the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed having dinner in the Lounge area every evening where a gentlemen playing the piano entertained us. We even treated ourselves to breakfast every morning with room service. The whole experience staying at the lovely hotel (which is probably a "jewel" in the IHG portfolio) was a sheer delight!
