great location, easy access to city centre, great way out back from Dublin. would definitely use Ibis again, great service, great selection at the breakfast bar. the staff made our stay after visit to 3Arena very enjoyable
The room was large and clean, the view from our room looked over the rear car park, away from the traffic of the busy N7. It served its purpose of a place to sleep, we did not use the food facilities, but the buffet breakfast from past visits was of a good quality.
the hotel was ok but overpriced the rooms as advertised as having a queen size bed large screen TV and it didn't at €110 a night overpriced if you pay by cash you will have to give a €100 deposit which I was not told until I arrived at the property
Enjoyed an overnight trip to Dublin. The location was ideal for where I was visiting. Food was excellent and good value. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Hope to return with family soon as I was upgraded to a family room which was excellent
As to be expected from an IBIS, only better. good standard of room, service was ok , although busy with coach parties. Food much better than experienced at other IBIS. Easy to find and to get to, only real disadvantage is the lack of a gym, otherwise I would probably stay there more often.
I understood from the IBIS website that there was a direct shuttle service between the airport and the hotel, this turned out not to be the case. The bus brings you to the nearest Luas station, which is a 7 minutes walk to the hotel (possibly more when you are lugging bags and Luggage around). Upon arrival at Dublin Airport, there was no clear indication on where to find the bus to IBIS hotel, nor what type of bus I was looking for. I tried to call the hotel twice, but got an automatic response instead of a real person that could have explained. (I couldn't understand the message as there was a lot of noise at the bus station) It is only thanks to very helpful airport and bus company staff that I finally got on the right bus. There is only 1 bus per hour, and I did not know the timetable before arriving at the (correct) bus stop - so had to wait 45 minutes. Big room, good bed and pillows. Clean; private bathroom... Expensive breakfast (€10,50 per day), especially when you are not a big eater, and in my case, vegetarian and lactose intolerant, which does not leave many options :-( No communication between reception and cleaning personnel: cleaning personnel showing up shortly after 9 AM already (so no sleeping in), or even barging in without knocking while I was in the room (happened twice to me!) Snack menu is supposed to be available all day: I tried to order linguini at 6 pm, had to wait until 6.30 to order because "the kitchen wasn't ready", then received penne instead of linguini, without informing me beforehand that they were "out of linguini" or giving me the chance to change my order (I was specifically looking forward to the linguini, I can eat penne anywhere). Afterwards, they charged €11.95 while the snack menu said €10. When I pointed this out, the bill was corrected. Late check-out was only possible until 2pm instead of 5pm as it says on the website, but it still cost me €25 extra! During these extra 2 hours, I couldn't even get a rest because cleaning personnel kept showing up, asking me what time I was leaving. Not the best way to make a guest feel welcome! I ended up leaving an hour early because I felt so uneasy and chased out of my room :-(.
I booked a room with a late check in and when I arrived the only person there was the cleaner, he said the receptionist/ person in charge has walked out and there was no replacement and he or anybody else had no access to the system to issue keys for rooms and nobody could issue keys and we would have to wait until 7am to get into our rooms. A few people turned up to get into their rooms and wee told the same thing and no other options were provided.
IBIS is good value for the traveller who does not want a hostel or a B&B. I failed to get the receptionists name on check -in but, she was really efficient. Dealt with two bookings one after another before us and then, without drawing a breath, she dealt with us... and with a cheerful smile.
what can I say, after the bad experience in Newport this got back the good Ibis spirit, all the staff was excellent and prompted to help out in everything so thanks again and keep it up, it was also very good to have the parking included
Good location for the luas and handy and cheap for a trip to Dublin. Stayed here a few times and will again. I just wish the TV channels were better since at times we were in our room for a long time.
We were given the impression that this hotel was good for the Airport, not a bit of it. It is a 40 Euro Taxi ride in both directions away. So put that out of your minds. It is also isolated from the world by a Motorway and no real walking access to anywhere. They also missed our wake up call and lucky we had another alarm back up so we did get our taxi back and make our flight. Do not depend upon them for a wake up call. The restaurant staff did not listen to my allergy request when I ordered by simple Tomato, Cheese and Ham sandwich, it came with chips (crisps in Europe). I said to the server "I have a food allergy to onions, nothing with onions OK?" She nodded! The sandwich came with chips, I took a mouthful "cheese and onion chips", I was throwing up outside and fighting for breath. What is with these people, OK onions and anything with them makes me sick, would they give peanuts to someone with that problem, they could kill them! We were not pleased, once I had lost my stomach contents, had a cup of tea and settled they found me a bag of salt and vinegar chips, now why could they had not done that in the first place?
Excellent location as very near to tram stop, staff and service second to none all the staff were most courteous and helpful, food was good, my only comment would be to have an outside seating area for the bar and restaurant
As a Gold member I will often choose IBIS and for pretty much everything I would say it was great. I get a free drink and a nice room and people are friendly and welcoming. BUT I thought the breakfast was below standard. It feels tired, ordinary and unappealing. When I asked for a glass of water I was told there were bottles for sale at reception.
Great location for Dublin airport, restaurant was a disaster! Check in was quick and easy. The room was very warm and no way to cool it down. Called the front desk and were advised to locate the panel on the heater which we did and it still blew warm air. Went to front desk to ask for assistance and were given a small fan which helped but no offer to change rooms or have someone look at the situation. Asked for dining recommendations and closest gas station. Told there was a variety of locations to eat in the village which was close. Decided to go back to hotel and use their restaurant, MAJOR mistake! Told we could order from our room and they'd call us when it was ready. Placed our order, after 15 minutes got a call saying they were out of what we'd order. Changed the order and waited another 25 minutes...still no call. We called and were told it would be ready in about 15 minutes. Waited another 20 minutes and went down to check. Seems they hadn't even started the order. Restaurant manager apologized, offered to not charge us and said he'd personally deliver it, which he finally did in about 15 minutes. When it was delivered both items were wrong which required another trip down to the restaurant. We'd recommend that not eating in the restaurant and going into the village...can't be any worse!
Just a 20-30 minute bus ride away into Dublin City Centre or the Airport, the IBIS at the Red Cow offers a greater value way to visit Dublin without incurring the extraordinary expense of some of the city hotels
I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel - the room was a good size and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and fresh. However, what really was outstanding was the staff friendliness and customer service was so friendly and made me feel so at home.
This is the second time that I have stayed in this hotel. The staff are extremely friendly, the rooms are spacious and the service is excellent. Very good restaurant with a varied menu. On the outskirts of Dublin but with good links to the city and the motorway network. I would well reccomend this hotel.
I loved the warm welcome and also the express check in. I was well taken care by Liz. She did even book me my trip to the Cliffs of Moher and she was exceptional in the way she manage the bus to pick me up at Red Cow close to the hotel. The room are clean and some has beautiful views. The breakfast buffet is great for an Ibis. If you are traveling south it is a great spot close to the tram station and Bus station. Enjoy your stay!
Room 127 is one of the newly refurbished rooms so it is very contemporary and comfortable. However, unless you enjoy sleeping next to a high speed power drill I would urge you not to stay here. There is a very loud whining noise akin to a power drill or a hydraulic pump that will wake you in the middle of the night (several times) and make you wonder what you did to deserve such a room - the room is adjacent to the lift shafts so the hotel must know abut this problem. Please sort it out!
Hotel in the Ibis old patterns, room bathroom not well restored, problems with hot water in the shower, hotel far from the city (30 minutes by tram) and very high rates during weekends and bank holidays. Good staff during check in and bar service.
