I love this hotel - I kind of had to as I lived here for 6 weeks.
The staff are really friendly, from check in staff to bar staff, you could joke about and have banter with all of them.
The lobby is lovely and incredibly well decorated - especially the chirping from their pet birds and the bar is brilliant. Always lively and with a great atmosphere. There's also a really cool display of masks in the lobby by the toilets...
Breakfast - very nice, good service and great selection. Fairly standard though.
The rooms are lovely! I was in a twin double so was nice and large, light and spacious. Decor is very nice, television is modern and bathroom is fantastic, I had a mix of shower and or bath so can vary.
Conference facilities - great, conferencing staff are brilliant, refreshments very well received and facilities very good.
Gym - shamefully... didn't use it but I heard it was a little small - but a gym's a gym and it's nice to have the option right?
There's a lot to do around blanchardstown, from restaurants to bowling & shopping, which is good because it's pretty far from the airport and the city centre.
Advice - If you're sensitive to upset stomach, probably avoid nearby restaurant Captain Americas. A large number of our party were left a little worse for wear (not me though).
