Great hotel with fabulous decor

Pros: Decor
Cons: A little bit dusty in the room which set off my allergies.
Location: Good transport links nearby.
Fantastic and prompt service, very delicious breakfast. Location is quiet with a bus down the road which takes you to the city centre regularly.

Accidental Tourist

Accompanied a friend to Beacon Hotel for a very early appointment at hospital next door. We had made an online booking error and the receptionist and manager could have not been more helpful giving us a rate that was cheaper than the online rate. Rooms are very modern.

worst hotel night ever!

The parking arrangements were ridiculous and very badly managed. The rooms were unbearabley warm. The wall were so thin , you heard doors , showers, running water taps from early morning. We were exhausted by morning and could have done with booking into another hotel to get some sleep!!!

What a find

A warm welcome awaits at the Beacon. It is refreshing to in stay in Dublin and not be charged for overnight parking! Breakfast is very reasonable, well presented and beautifully cooked. The restaurant and rooms are more 5 star than I expected. The staff are all lovely, nothings a problem from ordering you a taxi, etc. The Luas (train) into the city centre is just a 5 min walk away and takes 10/15 mins. Look no further in south Dublin. A wee gem! Loved it. Will definitely be back.

Cool funky

Fab hotel, staff fantastic, cool atmosphere, room amazing. Only downfall was we had to move room @2.30am due to guests in room next door being VERY light sleepers. Staff did what they could in a difficult situation...

Excellent value for overnight stay.

Very comfortable, trendy room. Would have joined in the fun downstairs if it had just been ourselves. No sleep disturbance from the late night bar.
