    « Ok, staff let this place down »

    Location is probably good for those travelling by bus/tram without kids and luggage from the airport, but not in a great area otherwise. We had to get a cab and to be fair it was only about 40 Euro for 5 of us plus all our luggage. Hotel first impressions are great, big reception area, grand staircase, and nice old world style decor, looked clean and tidy. Reception was busy and so we waited to check in at around 12 noon. We unfortunately found the majority of the staff unhelpful, the reception staff were abrupt and bordering on rude. The lady who I assumed was the duty manager as she stomped around was not very welcoming either. After we checked in (although our rooms weren't ready), and paid in full we were then told that we weren't allowed to use the pool until after 3pm (room check in time), as there would be too many people wanting to use the pool. We pointed out that check out was 11 so this couldn't be correct. We asked if this could be sorted out by telephoning through to the leisure club and the answer was no. It was very odd, and the pool was the only reason we chose that hotel for the overnight stay, and not something in the booking terms and conditions. Swim hats required for the pool (also not in the booking terms), and an extra charge for that too, all in all really put us off. Food was ok but fairly expensive, drinks also very expensive, cafe and a McDonalds a couple of mins walk away was a better option. Room was ok, large, a bit dated but fine for a quick overnight stay and generally clean and tidy.

    « Weekend Break »

    Great hotel, location not bad only 20 minutes to the city centre on the tram which is only a short walk away, ATM's across the road. Staff very polite and helpful, had one night where the night porter/reception chap was very rude, though, spoke with the manager of the hotel the following day whom was very helpful and dealt with the matter immediately. Room service comes with a €4.00 charge, the food itself was wonderful, I couldn't fault it at all, I had steak one evening and it was cooked to perfection. All in all a great hotel The rooms are spacious, and very warm, cleaned to the high standard, the beds superbly comfy, sound levels minimal, which you would want on a stay.

    « Good value hotel »

    Stayed here recently as it was near to an occasion. This is by no means a fancy hotel but is a get what you pay for hotel. Great food and service in the bar, parking easy, Breakfast was so and so... Hotel is a bit musky and may have seen better days, shower is a bit finicky.... This hotel is a good bit out of the city centre but the Luas and taxis are accessible and easy. For the price I would stay again ......if in that area....

    Stayed here for the weekend Staff friendly and helpful. Room on top floor, lovely clean room and comfy bed. (Standard room) awkward arrangement with kettle to plug in but managed. We hired a car but tram stop close by to go into Dublin Receptionist very helpful with direction and places to visit. Downside drinks in bar expensive

    « Good Place to Stay »

    Have just returned from a 'Girlie' weekend away with friends. Enjoyed our stay. Staff were extremely friendly & rooms very clean and comfortable. Only 5 min walk to the Tram which takes you straight into Dublin centre where you can shop til you drop. Just be careful of your handbag on the tram and there are ALOT of beggars but Dublin is an amazing place to visit. Will defo go back for sure. No hesitation in recommending this hotel to stay ..

    « Lovely great value hotel »

    We stayed in this hotel 13/11 - 15/11. The room was very clean and pleasant, the staff were really helpful and the food at the restaurant was lovely. The tram is a 5 min walk away and a very easy way to get into the city. We would totally recommend this hotel. Has a nice Gym and Pool too.

    « Amazing hotel with friendly staff »

    Myself and nine of my friends stayed in the hotel while we went to watch the rugby, check in was really easy and the ladies at reception where really friendly. The rooms were really big and have everything you could want in a hotel room. The staff even put a roll away bed in one of the rooms as we had an extra person. This was done immediately and without fuss. We stayed in the hotel lobby until 4 in the morning at which point the lovely night porter offered to order us some pizza as we were all hungry. There service was amazing. The food in the hotel bar was amazing and very affordable. Elaine at the front desk was really friendly and accommodating we all said we would definitely return again if we were to go to the rugby, the transport links are brilliant! Thank you for having us! Rachel, Ryan, Mickey, Dara, Alan, Colm, Michelle and Colin :)

    « Terrible customer service »

    I stayed in the best Western on a family trip away for one night. We booked in and went straight to the restaurant so we went to our room quite late (930pm). We immediately got a terrible sickly smell in the room. We called reception who told us they couldn't move us due to the hotel being fully booked. They sent up shake n vac to try and mask the smell, which didn't work. Even with the window open the smell still lingered. We discovered that there had been a leak in the room a few weeks before that had damaged the carpet which is where the smell was coming from. It was a very uncomfortable night, we had no other choice but to stay there. The hotel did offer to relocate us but considering it was so late at night and we'd had a long journey that day we felt it best that the children get some rest rather then packing up again. The following day I spoke to a very nice manager who offered us 20% discount when I said I was unhappy with that offer he said he'd get the owner to contact me the following day. The manager rang me the following day and informed me that the owner of the hotel was not willing to give us any discount as we stayed in the room even though they had offered to relocate us. I asked to talk directly to her and I was told she would not take my call ... that she never did take these kind of calls!! It's so disappointing in this day and age to be faced with such poor customer service. In my opinion the room was damaged, below health and safety standards and not habitable and the hotel knew that and still had it available. And the fact that the owner totally disregarded our experience shows how little interest she has in her customers. I would strongly recommend not staying in this hotel for love nor money.

    « Lovely Hotel »

    We stayed 2 nights at the Sheldon Park recently and we thought it was a lovely hotel and great base from which to explore Dublin. The Luas (tram) is really close and provides excellent links to most areas of the city. Reception staff and bar staff were extremely friendly & helpful and our room was very clean and had everything we needed! We would love to return.

    « Very pleasant Hotel »

    Very nice room with king sized bed(standard room), good sized bathroom with shampoo, shower gel etc (proper bottles, not the tiny freebie ones you usually get!). TV, tea and coffee tray (sadly no biscuits)! Very friendly reception staff. We didn't try the full cooked breakfast nor the pool and gym (we had planned to but we're far too busy exploring Dublin). The hotel is about 25-30 mins from the city centre but is only a few minutes walk from the tram stop so access to the city is actually very straightforward.

    « Fabulous place to stay, »

    Got great deal, thought why not, yes hotel bit out of city, but tram link is fabulous. Every few minutes end of the road. We arrived early as flight arrived at 9. Standard room not ready, so we paid an extra 40 eu for 2 nights to upgrade. God knows what the standard room is like as we were right over a convector and facing other rooms. But hey Ho. Didn't book breakfast and that was good choice, no rushing and relaxing eat at Cabana over the road on the way to tram. Good value and service. Full Irish €7.95 . Best day Kilmanein jail. If you don't book in advance it's potluck if you get in. Only 8 euros for guided tour. Well worth it.

    « birthday holiday »

    hotel was very clean,staff friendly,room was spacious only fault toilet was too close to the baths edge.we refused to pay 10 euros for just a continental breakfast.but lunch and evening meals were excellant '' very large portions'' and worth the money.location west of city center but easily acess to town center by tram advise getting a leap card or a day return ticket.would stay again.

    « quick two night stay »

    We were fortunate to be able to check in early and had a room at the back of the hotel on the second floor. Efficient staff and quick lift. Wonderful entrance hall. The hotel looked clean and well presented. Staff keen to help and with useful travel advice (Use the Luas tram,,,dont drive to city) Room was sufficiently large but beware sloping roof (four bumps to head later and still doing it!!!). The leisure club looked a little dated and not as clean as we would have liked but it was at the end of a busy day. Pool was clean and warm. Dont forget swim caps even for baldies like me. Would we stay again? of course...and or those on a cheap budget there is an Aldi supermarket just up the road

    « Poor bathroom »

    Nice hotel at first sight but the bathroom was poor. Cracked sink. No power in the shower and the toilet position meant I had to lean forward which is not the most comfortable position to do your stuff and read emails. That aside Gary in the bar was fantastic and a credit to them.

    « Clean and Tidy Hotel »

    We stayed here on our trip to Dublin, 6 of us in total. The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are friendly and helpful. The room was way too hot however, and friends staying with us who were on their own in a double room had more space than we did to share! The bar could use some extra staff as there was a long wait for drinks and it was pretty busy. Transport to the town centre was just a few minutes walk away by tram, but is quite a way from the main City.

    « Lovely Hotel, food & staff »

    Can't fault anything in this hotel.. blonde lady on reception is very helpful & can't do enough for you! Very clean hotel & the breakfast was lovely! Would definitely stay here again.. it is a little way from centre but you can get the tram from around the corner.

    « Good place to stay, a bit out of town »

    Stayed as a party of six lads on stag. Clean and spacious rooms. Burgers in the bar good. Enjoyed the pool and sauna as well post hangover! The hotel is quite a way from town centre, prob 30euros in cab. But the tram stop is a five minute walk away and takes about ten mins.

    « Marathon Weekend Stay »

    Lovely hotel, Friendly staff, excellent food only disappointment was the noise due to hotel entertainment. My room was above the bar and I was kept awake until the music finished but Iwould stay here again just ask for a different room.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    I would like to say a big thank u to Elaine who was on reception when we arrived, smiles all round very polite and informative about where to go and how to get about. I was taken to this hotel as a surprise break away, and I was very pleased from I walked into the hotel right up to my departure. We spent two nights on the second floor, with two single beds, our room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom. Complimentary tea and coffee came in handy as we had a great lie in, we had dinner at the hotel both nights and all I can say is wow hats off to the chef food is delicious, I cleaned my plate both nights. Our waiters were great Alex and Greg thank you, the gentleman behind the bar was friendly and polite sorry I didn't get your name. The manager was great to talk too, he is a polite gentleman can't wait to go back to see that massive chandelier lit up. We used the swimming pool, it was not busy so we chilled in the jacuzzi then went in the steam room just fabulous

    « Disappointed »

    Unfortunately our room's window overlooked the corridor ,the room was also next to a very noisy generator which kept us awake all night , we had been told at booking the hotel was full ,only to be informed the next day by the manager we should have asked to be moved and no other customers had complained.

    « Serves a purpose »

    Nice hotel but a bit far out of the city centre and it costs around €18 a time for a taxi to get to main areas like Temple Bar - hotel clean and good breakfast - was only here for one night so didn't find out what facilities it had

    « A decent Best Western »

    I stayed here for one night whilst working in the area and found this to be an OK place to stay. The room was decent and the staff are friendly. I particularly liked the restaurant. Their steak is fantastic and definition worth coming in for. That and a measure of the local whisky meant I slept like a log!

    « Great stay convenient »

    Great hotel 25 mins from centre Convenient for Tram red line luas 5 mins walk away Staff very friendly and helpful no issues Breakfast option recommended as 10 euros each instead of 14 and plenty to full Didn't really look at options as only there 2 nights but happy. Actually ate in restaurant next door and pretty happy with service and food For both nights before we went to centre

    « Short break away with a friend »

    We stayed in sheldon park hotel for two night. We arrived early, initially planning to leave our bags. However a room was made available. We had emailed to see if we could change from a double to a twin and we're told that this was not possible but on arrival we were met with a very friendly receptionist who not only checked us in early but also changed us to a twin. Whilst there we were offered a breakfast deal - well worth the €10 a day as the breakfasts are lovely, a good selection and freshly cooked. Through out our stay the staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were dated in style but very clean with comfy beds. The hotel is away from the centre but very near the Luas line. We quite liked it's location as the luas run late into the night and you can purchase a hop on ticket for about €6 the 24 hrs. McDonald's on route to the hotel was quite useful for late night snacks. Our only negative was the leisure facilities. The changing rooms were run down, the pool cold and the jacuzzi out of action. The compulsory wearing of swimming hats also didn't add to the feeling of pampering. On the whole the hotel though was good and if I returned I would stay again. They were repairing the jacuzzi so hopefully the hotel have plans for their leisure facilities.

    « Very nice stay »

    I've spent four night here in the hotel and it is very cosy, a little old fashioned but I like that and it has a swimming pool and gym so I am happy. It is near the tram and I think the prices are very reasonable. I would recommend this and would come back here, staff are very friendly.

    « No problems here »

    We stopped here as a party of nine,me and the wife had a double room Nice view of the car park at rear. No frills hotel.Good room no problems. Clean and comfortable. Only thing i would criticize would be the restaurant,we ordered food and no gravy available for our veggies . But all good

    « Lovely Weekend Visit ?? »

    Stayed here for two nights this October. Nice friendly staff, hadn't booked breakfast with them so they kindly offered it when we first got there. Our rooms were ready upon arrival so nice easy check in. We stayed in room 213 which was a standard twin room. Not the biggest of rooms but adequate for what we needed. ??Tea/coffee making facilities in room, a hairdryer and a iron and ironing board ~ brilliant! Clean towels and beds made regularly. Modern widescreen tv on a mahogany dressing table. No problems with the shower or heating in our room... everything was just right! ??Free use of wifi throughout the hotel which is always a good thing so pleased with that. ?? Hotel is just a few minutes walk to the 'Kylemore' tram stop. It's about a 20 minute ride then into the city centre which we didn't mind, tram does get very busy tho so we had to stand up most the time on it. It cost €2.70 per adult for a single trip but there were other options available (day passes etc) ?? We took a taxi back on the Saturday night from the city centre, took about 15 minutes and cost €14.80 ????McDonalds is a few minutes walk down the road (next to the Luas tram stop) and also a cafe near there too. Happy we picked this hotel, would definitely stay here again. Thank you Best Western Sheldon Park ?

    Wow this is the place. Absolutely amazing. I came here in July last year. This time around I came with my partner and friends. It's very traditional so you get the feel your looking for. Atmosphere fabulous, staff lovely, decor lovely (great for a wedding) rooms great even the standard. Food was good from the adjoining restaurant with good service. Entertainment on occasionally which was great as well.

    « Excellent value for money/Old fashioned 100 room hotel 5 miles from Dublin centre »

    Large hotel harking back to former times. Large lobby staircase with hanging chandelier, large statues and ornaments, Wilton carpet, floral wallpaper, brown furniture, bathrooms in need of updating. If you buy the green bus hop on & off pass you can use Airlink Bus 747 and change at College Green in Dublin City centre for bus 13 to Kylemore Rd. The pass allows you to use all Dublin buses but not the tram. It's about 5 miles and takes about 30 minutes depending on traffic. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the bus stop and stands in its own grounds with a separate annexe housing the gym/swimming pool and its own car park. The full breakfast at 10 euros is a bargain. You eat and drink all you want from the buffet and order freshly cooked breakfast. It's a busy room and service excellent. Our room was no.203 which was comfortable. Bedding excellent, tea coffee making although kettle had a very short cord and power point very awkwardly positioned. Bathroom with tub and shower over. Seniors might find it a struggle to get in. Spotlessly clean and serviced everyday. Avail yourself of the sport centre facility, it's free: swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room (you'll need a purchase a cap). The buffet lunch restaurant is excellent value for money but closes at 3pm. The formal evening restaurant is high end (for my pocket). We used bus 18 to Ballyfermot Rd (just 5 minutes away) shopping parade where there are a few eating places and in particular 'The Full Stop Cafe' where food is freshly cooked and wholesome and service with a smile. Also excellent the 'Far East Restaurant'/Chinese take away across the road. When visiting Dublin get back on bus 13 and get off at College Green stop. Opposite get the green hop on & off bus (just in front of the famous Abercrombie store). At the end of the tour you can do the Dockland tour which you can alight on O'Connell street just a few yards away. The bus drivers/guides are priceless although opiniated. We had a wonderful time in Dublin where people are friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Sheldon Park Hotel if you don't mind the travel into town. It is excellent value for money and service second to none.

    « Hotel for a budget »

    Basic hotel with nice staff, not the best area but close to a tram line that cost 9euro for 2 of us return to Dublin centre. We'd recommend eating outside of the hotel, we had 1 dinner each which weren't great, the cocktails were weak and tasteless, breakfast was better but not worth 10euro each when you can get better in the city.

    « Grantham and Davidson »

    Absolutely stunning hotel. We had a twin room, it was small but plenty big enough. The ONLY criticism is the bath/shower. As it had a fixed shower screen it was quite hard to turn bath taps on could only just reach plus the grouting in there was a bit mouldy but didn't really bother us as the lady on reception Elaine, was a diamond. So so helpful. It was our first time in Dublin and she helped us out so much. We had a sharing platter for two for dinner one night and it was massive! Good value for money. We had a 2nd floor room and couldn't hear any music what so ever. Believe me it was loud on both the Saturday and Sunday but our room was quiet. Would definitely stay there again if we went back to Dublin. A short walk from tram stop, bus stop and an Aldi supermarket and a McDonald's for a coffee. Very clean and welcoming hotel.

    « Not good!!! »

    Just got back from a weekend away in Dublin with my boyfriend for our birthdays. We booked this hotel as we have previously stayed at best westerns and enjoyed our stays! This hotel is about an hour and a half away from the airport and 30 mins away from the city centre in what I'd describe as downtown Dublin! Not a nice area at all!! We arrived to a grumpy receptionist who seemed quite put out that we wanted to pay cash for our room straight away. We were not offered any breakfast deal so ate out for all meals. Our room looked ok on arrival, the view from our window was horrendous! Just a dump yard for loads of crap basically! The shower was useless and the bed was rock hard!! We soon realised our room was situated over the bar which had live music every evening we was there (something we was not informed of) which went on till early hours of the morning. When we asked to move rooms we were told there were none available so had to put up with it! One evening when I'd just got out the shower about 6:30pm a housekeeper walked straight into the room to ask if we had noticed anything had been taken as they had new staff. We were shocked that she would just walk in esp as I only had on a towel! I would not recommend this hotel at all, it was not a nice stay and we certainly won't be using a best western again!!

    « Another happy customer! »

    We chose this hotel because we have never been let down by a Best Western hotel.The staff were helpful and welcoming.Nothing was too much trouble.The reception was very grand alas the decor in the hallways and rooms didn't portray the same splendour. Paint was patched up and our room (221) was rather small.we had some issues in our room but a handyman came immediately to rectify but this could have been avoided by a simple pre-visitor check. The breakfast room was homely and I give the breakfast 10/10. Molly Mccabes bar served absolutely top class food and staff were brilliant. We were woken twice because the fire alarm went off..This was nothing to do with the hotel. .it was an ignorant puffin bullies who ignored the clear signage saying NO SMOKING..I was pleased to witness the hotels non-tol to inconsiderate behaviour. 20 mins from centre...A TIP...book online the hop on hop off bus...it collects from hotel at 9am.....and go to the jail. ..it's an amazing experience. The best part of our holiday. Thanks sheldon park for lovely stay.

    « We stayed at the Sheldon when we went to Dublin for the weekend »

    This Hotel was very lovely and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful, it was a very nice journey into the city centre by tram, which just stopped around the corner, a good place to stay if you don''t want to be in the centre of it all.

    « let down by the breakfast - maybe one of us had a bad day »

    First of all the location is ideal as many reviewers have pointed at. i had 3 options given to me by companies travel agent and as soon as Best Western popped up that was the one. Typical 'older decor ', lovely grand lobby - kind of what the bewleys hotels wished they were! theres plenty of pics on here to show. if you dont want contempory then this place is great. Room was small but very clean and tidy, bathroom only recently re-furbed by the looks, no view other than that of people walking past in the adjacent corridor - hey its the location its in i dont expect a sea view so not a problem. It was the breakfast that was the dissapointment for me. i dont expect many people stay away in a hotel and not get a package that include breakfast so you would think a good breakfast was a given. I chose to eat at around 9am ( quite late really these days) but the breakfast room was still very busy - not a problem i wasnt in a rush and normally busy means the food would be fresh and hot. Lads, 1 sausage, 1 dried rasher, 2 1/2 mushrooms, 1/2 tomato a dead hash brown, scoop of beans and 2 of the most miserable looking shrivelled rubbery pieces of pudding does not make a breakfast - seriously it looked and tasted like it came out of a breaky roll from the garage over the road at 3pm the day before ( they put 2 rashers and 2 sausys in theirs by the way) Due to work i stay away from home an average of 30 times a year, usually on a one night basis, and half of those around dublin - this was by far the worse hotel breaky ive had. - seriously, save the cash and grab a roll from the garage or even go to the macdonalds 300 yds away! ( NOTE: usual continental assortments were in good supply - my issue is around the cooked food ) I asked a question about a smoking area as im an occassional cigar smoker and appreciate that the world is anti-tobacco these days. i was pointed at 2 tables outside the main bar area literally 3ft away from passing cars in the carpark and not covered over, by the look of the teenagers using them and the non-hotel bought food they were eating along with their bmx bikes alongside i would also summise these are for general public use also. i dont mind these days if i dont get a heated/ covered area, i have a hood and im now in the minority but a bit of imagination could be used here surely - at the other end of the carpark not 50 yds away is a 'disused' metal birdcage style pergola on a hard stand in a lovely grassed corner secluded by trees etc - why not make this a seated area and score a few browny points with guests?!

    « Easy accessibility for sightseeing/ attractions »

    The hotel was about 5 mins walk from the Red Luas line (Tram). It takes about 15mins to get to the main city centre. There are various attractions along the luas line, if you are staying for a few days worth buying the tourist leap pass this is different to the Freedom pass which is first offered to you at the Dublin airport. The Leap pass gives you unlimited travel on the buses and luas (includes airport link buses). The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming, we took the offer the breakfast deal which was very good value. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The own downside throughout the hotel is the decor which could do with updating.

    « AMAZING Experience »

    BEST WESTERN Sheldon Park Hotel over exceeded my expectations; we were warmly welcomed by the Reception Staff who made us feeling very special, and this is one of those "things" that make the difference anywhere you go. Special thanks to Jelena, Katarina, Polin for all their info regarding the town and the assistance during our stay. Beautiful hotel with a splendid hall, excellent in everything: room was perfect, well cleaned and furnished of all we needed, breakfast excellent in typical Irish style, restaurant and bar to complete with a perfect touch our stay. Another great point is the location, barely 5 minutes walking distance from the tram (Red Line) which connects in like 15 minutes downtown Dublin. Outstanding experience, highly recommended, I will surely be back again in the near future to enjoy and discover more the super reality of Dublin ***** .

    Great hotel . Close to trams to city centre . Only let down is the breakfast deal has you got to take it for your entire stay . We had early flight on the Monday so deal was useless to us ?? so we went to cafe over road for breakfast ??.

    Beautiful and elegant hotel, very comfortable, only a very small problem with the shower, i've repaired it by my self. The staff is very kind and gave us all useful information. Bathroom clean, large and modern. The area is not just beautiful but very well connected with the city centre by LUAS in fifteen minutes. I booked it on a website and I got a good price compared to other locations in the city.

    « Beautiful Best Western »

    Myself and my partner have started exploring the big cities in and around the UK before venturing further. I am very pleased to say Dublin set the bar pretty high. The hotel was very clean, the staff very polite and helpful. Yes the décor is dated but what would you expect from a Best Western, I would opt to stay at one every time. The bar staff were very accommodating as me and my partner like different drinks, they started to mix up their owns concoctions. We took the tram into the city as it was closing on Christmas, the streets and decorations were beautiful. We even walked back, which took about 40 minutes but the scenery was worth it.

    « More cons than pros »

    We booked a family room. Three adults and a 14 year old. Given a room with a double bed and two single beds and a cot. They were able to remove the cot and put in a camp bed. The double bed was OK but the two single beds and camp bed were extremely poor. There was mould on the bathroom wall by the ceiling. The toilet is stewed up directly against the tub so you can't sit on it properly and let you sit sideways. As for breakfast don't expect to be in a hurry. We had part of the buffet and the full Irish breakfast as well as on what we had to wait probably half an hour before we got an order taken. My coffee wasn't hot plate wasn't hot the food was mediocre but other than that I guess it was OK. The good thing is that they do have a family room which is practically nowhere to be seen elsewhere anywhere near the city center of Dublin.

    « Friendly staff but no shower! »

    This is a 20-30min tram ride from the city centre and situated on a business park ideal for meetings and conferences I'd suggest. We stayed for two nights and the staff, from the ladies behind reception to the barman and restaurant staff, were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed in room 202. The room was clean and of average size with an en suite bathroom, however there was only a bath and no shower or even a shower attachment on the taps to allow for hair washing which was disappointing. The room was also a tad warm but with the window open the build up of traffic early morning acted as an alarm call. The cistern also dripped after use which was a little annoying after a night time visit! The taxi driver they use is an absolute gent and we used him to get to the airport as we had an early flight, which was sorted via reception.

    The room is very clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the convenience of the nearby light rail stop (walk towards the McDonalds once to leave the stop). There are also bus stops. However, in the fall of 2016, there are more planned bus strikes. The hotel is a good value. It is away from the city center, in a quiet area.

    « Ok..... »

    First impressions were and absolute disaster! Reception staff were ignorant and totally unhelpful! Weren't told where anything was, figure it out yourself! Got handed the keys and figure out where you're going yourself, what times breakfast are at, and where the leisure club is and what times that opens at. Nearly turned me off our whole weekend stay. Thankfully, the staff in the bar made up for that! They were so nice and helpful, weren't left waiting at the bar. Had a meal on Saturday night and it was fantastic! Steak on the stone and finish it off to your liking ?? dear, but totally worth the money. Would I stay here again? Personally, no. Spent most of Friday in the room contemplating going home. Would come back for a family meal again though!

    « Friends special birthday »

    We had a early flight so when we arrived only one of our rooms was ready but the receptionist Elaine let us have the key for the room that was ready then phoned when our room was ready. Both of the rooms where very nice all that you needed. We chose to eat in the bar and was served by a lovely girl called Caili who was really helpful and joined in with us. The food was very nice and I would recommend the guiness beef stew in Yorkshire pudding. We also met David the operations manager on our first night who was very helpful and told us about taxi prices and where to catch the tram. Breakfast was also very nice at the hotel staff very helpful jack in particular. We didn't get to use any of the facilities at the spa but we hope to return to the hotel again. Would recommend this hotel it may not be in Dublin it's self but if it was you would have to pay a lot more for it well worth the money.

    « Elaine at front desk amazing other staff rude and hotel nothing special »

    It's not in Dublin city. Don't be fooled. It's a 20 minute tram into the city and from the airport takes an hour getting a bus to Hueston and then a tram on the red line to kylemore where the hotel is only 4 minutes walk from. Hotel is nothing special, beds are better at ibis and rooms kinda small. Wifi all around is okay. Breakfast is soooo not worth the money the buffet has hardly any choice and eggs are extremely basic and bland. Also it calls itself a spa hotel when the spa isn't attached and is in a separate building. We were also very disappointed when Paula (who was very rude and uninformative) told us we couldn't use the pool after we checked out. Also the buses were on strike so we were enquiring with Paula the best way to get to the airport she was not very helpful so we googled it and found our own way. Wouldn't stay here again plenty nicer places closer to the city

    Great location if you don't want to stay in the centre of Dublin. Easy access to the tram. Room was basic but clean & tidy. Bar staff/waiting staff were very friendly , reception team not so much. Arrival receptionist was nice. But on check out no one asked how our stay was or if everything was okay , which I think is a standard thing to ask a guest on departure. Overall a pleasant stay & I would stay here again.

    « Why stay at Sheldon Park »

    This lovely hotel is situated near a retail park but it is an oasis after a hectic day in the city centre. There is a swimming pool and a gym which made it even better as the cost of some of the hotels in the city centre were rather high. Staff were friendly and a good choice of breakfast albeit a little slow; but we were not in a hurry so it suited us. There is a reasonable menu for those who do not want to go back to the city centre and music at weekends. Transport links to this hotel are very good with the Luas and city bus(13 and 68) stopping within a 5 minute walk of the hotel. The number 13 (towards Grange castle) goes past the Guiness store house We used the Leap card which made it very easy to travel using the Luas and bus. If you wanted to rent a vehicle, there is an Enterprise car rental facility next door so you can explore a little further. Ample car parking within the hotel grounds.

    « Alright »

    The hotel itself is really nice, the rooms are nice and clean and the beds are comfy there was a tv in our room and a bath and shower. When it came to check in, I was told on my booking that we could check in at 2, as we had an early flight we went out in the morning then came back at 2 for the very rude woman on reception who wasn't Irish or English to tell me the room wasn't ready. I asked when it would be and she said she didn't know, this was obviously really annoying as there was no point going back out so we waited in the bar and a really helpful Irish man who worked there managed to sort us a complimentary upgrade as we had to check in an hour late and our room was still not ready! Then when it came to paying they had already put a hold on the money in my account when I had brought euros to pay by cash, he explained to me that I should pay by card as the money is out on a hold for 2 weeks. As you know the euro to GBP rate is not great right now so this was yet another inconvenience. Then they had to have a hold on a credit card of £100 which is a hold for 2 weeks and 2 weeks later we still don't have the money back. I fail to understand why they can't just take card details instead of having a hold on your money so you can't spend it! I will be contacting the hotel this weekend to ask why I haven't got my money back. Overall we had an amazing time in Dublin it's a fantastic city with lots to do, friendly people everywhere! But I wouldn't stay in this hotel purely because of the inconvenient check in and the 2 week hold it has on your money!!!

    « Convenient location »

    Whilst this hotel isn't located in the most salubrious surroundings it has a lot going for it. It is close to the M5 so easy to reach when coming from out of the city and most importantly the hotel is only a very short walk from the LUAS station at Kylmore. The LUAS has a very frequent service, on average every ten to fifteen minutes in to the city and is approx €2.40 a single ticket. The hotel is a little older but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are excellent. Attached to the hotel is a pub which also serves good fare and is available all day. Overall a better bet than some of the more expensive hotels closer to downtown Dublin.

    « Horrible check-in experience »

    I had a horrible check-in experience. The check-in lady refused in an extremely rude manner to check us in unless we present the 50 EURO per night guarantee although the room was already paid. The location of the hotel is very far from city center, in an industrial area. I found the web site 20 minutes from city center misleading since it is 25 minutes by tram and not on foot.

    « Good hotel with easy access to transport link »

    We had to get a taxi to hotel as nobody at airport seemed to know which bus to get. This cost 35 euros. The hotel was lovely with a sweeping staircase and a very large restaurant/pub which had entertainment on whilst we were there. The transport to the centre was by the Luis (tram) which was a 5 minute walk from hotel. It is not as cheap as we were led to believe. We also paid for a Dublin pass which took in all the attractions and well worth the money. A very nice three day break.

    Stayed here Aug bank holiday weekend and what a fabulous stay we had. We arrived very late approx 1am due to hiring a car and getting lost! :-/ we had a simple and efficient check in, a good reception service. The room was lovely with a comfy clean double bed with crisp white sheets, TV, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, toiletries, even an alarm clock! The bathroom had a bath but no shower. We ate in the bar restaurant on the first night and it was superb, my partner and I were pleasantly surprised with the food and couldn't have asked for a better meal with first class service, thank you. We used the leisure facilities and I used the gym, which was a bonus! The gym is next door and free to hotel guests. They even supply the towels for the pool. If you use the pool you must wear a swimming cap which are provided at the leisure centre reception (I didn't use the pool so not sure if there is a charge for the cap). I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return in the future for another lovely stay. Thank you :)

    The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean but not the most comfortable. The shower is not the best nor is it modern but it works and has great water pressure. The hotel location is out in a sort of industrial/business area and not in easy walking distance to shops or restaurants but there is a Mc Donald's down the street (if you must) and the train into downtown Dublin is right there, also. You can make do with the hotel restaurant in a pinch but I recommend going into the city for meals. For what we paid, this was a good deal.

    « Fab food, bad beds! »

    Hotel located 15 mins from centre, easy to access by tram. In an industrial area so not much around it. McDs and cafe across road are only local places to eat. Hotel itself needs updating, very brown! Room is basic but clean. Beds awful! Worst nights sleep I've had, informed reception they were friendly but no apology. Needed extra quilt to sleep ON to improve softness of mattress. Food in hotel was rather tasty and reasonably priced. Hotel regularly features on discounted offer sites but would prefer to pay more to stay closer to city and in a good bed. No compensation offered for discomfort. Wouldn't stay again.

    We had a lovely stay - the only disappointment was the limited access to the pool. We specifically stay in hotels with pools for the family to enjoy & on arrival at 5:30pm were told that he pool was no longer available to families & wouldn't be until 9am the following day which was too late for us. A member of staff on checkin had advised us to eat before we returning to the hotel however we aye in the restaurant & were surprised to find the food to be delicious - we had the steak on a slab which was excellent - waitress was very friendly.

    This hotel is a very modern looking building but don't be put off by the facade. Inside is very well appointed, comfortable hotel, with friendly and well trained staff who give excellent customer service. The rooms are very comfortable and although the bar/restaurant is very cavernous the food is good, and plenty of it! Very good leisure facilities are next door to the hotel and these are free to residents. Very good base for Dublin if you do not want to be in the centre of the city.

    « Very good »

    I sometimes wonder when reading reviews if I have visited the same hotel. I have stayed here many times and the service, food, rooms, staff have always been very good and the visit this week was no different. Check in was efficient and David was very pleasant and helpful. The room, albeit one of the newer ones, was clean, spacious, had a good supply of sockets to charge all today's technology, powerful shower and a plentiful supply of hot water. Bar service I thought was a little slow and once when I went for a drink there was nobody there and I returned to my table as my food was waiting but the waiter noticed and came and asked me what I wanted and brought it to me. Food portions, I think, are too large so you don't go hungry and the quality is always good. Breakfast, good selection and my full Irish was very hot and a full plate. If I have a complaint it is that the beds are slightly hard for me but probably perfectly fine for someone else and in winter I find the quilts on the thin side, I often have to supplement with a blanket. However I would have no hesitation recommending the BW Sheldon Park hotel !

    After having read some reviews on here that slightly marred the trip but it was booked and nothing really could be done.

We decided to eat in the hotel that night I can highly recommend the roast beef dinner it was amazing and reasonable priced to. There was entertainment on in the hotel Sunday evening so we relaxed to enjoy and the dancing to. Breakfast offer for 10euros was well worth the price the food was lovely we really enjoyed our stay. We didn't use the pool so cannot comment. Would I recommend hell yes room was comfy yes it was warm we turned the radiator down and got a fan.

    « Crammed into a Tiny Room »

    The friendliness of the staff was hit and miss: some were really accommodating and some were really distant and uncaring. Our flight came in at 8 am and arrived at the hotel quite early we were not welcomed or invited to use the restaurant , bar, or leisure facilities while we had to wait to check in: we were told to come back strictly at 3 pm. The room we had was a small double overlooking Dublin, misleading as the city centre can't be seen from the area. The room had a slanted ceiling making it feel smaller than it already was. Kettle, iron, and hair drier were supplied in the room, however there was no convenient plug for the kettle and hair drier and had to be plugged in in the very narrow entrance way to the room (the door didn't even open completely). Bathroom was well equipped and clean but there was no thought put into where to put the toilet paper! It was stacked on top of the toilet but found ourselves having to move it or dropping on the floor all the time. We booked the hotel based on the gym and spa facilities advertised: the two were in fact in separate buildings. The gym itself had a wide range of equipment available if a little tired looking. Only thing missing was a lifting platform with squat rack. A beauty therapist was also on site but was not in until after lunch and only one was available so I was not able to even get a quick nail polish coat on my toes while I was there. The swimming pool was more for leisure than for swimming as its not a very big pool and swimming caps were mandatory (for hygiene reasons?). Sauna, steam room, and hot tub were also available. We spotted a lot of dirt in the shower next to the hot tub and in the changing rooms. The lady's changing room didn't have a proper door and anyone by the steam room could have a look in onto a 1/3 of the women's changing area. Free wifi was available and very useable. The bed was quite comfortable and the common areas had lovely Decor that made the whole hotel feel grand and cozy. By car it's 25 min from the Dublin airport and a 10 min walk to the nearest tram station. Would stay here again and hopefully get a bigger room !

The hotel was lovely and the room was very comfortable however very very hot!! We managed to open the window as wide as possible but still no difference. We didn't purchase breakfast at the hotel as we thought 14 Euros was quite expensive when the cafe across the road charged 9.95 The hotel was quite a distance from the city centre but the leap card that we purchased from the airport supplied us with all the transport requirements that we needed I would recommend this hotel as long as you don't mind a tram journey to get to it

    Hotel is in a very industrial area - .There is a Cafe, 24 hour Mcdonalds and a petrol station nearby, there is also an Aldi if you turn right when you come out of the hotel, but it is quite a walk. The red line Luas(tram) stop is Kylemore and is a 4-5 minute walk away and takes about 20 minutes to city centre, this costs 5 Euro return per person, for main bar area you need to get off at Jervis, it is a straight walk over the bridge to the Temple Bar area. We used the hotel to sleep only, breakfast cost 10 Euros per person, we ate at the near by Cafe, mini breakfast 5.95 euros, this was very nice. We used the spa once, we were very disappointed, everyone has to wear a swimming hat, even my husband who doesn't have much hair, hats are available for 2 Euros, advertising the hotel. There are no lockers available so you have to leave your belongings in the hotel, we signed a disclaimer regarding leaving valuables in your room or car, so didn't feel happy about leaving our things in our room, we queried this at reception and after being cross examined by one of the receptionists, I produced the signed disclaimer, she them agreed that we could leave our valuables in the hotel safe. The pool was very busy with lots of children. We would not use this hotel again as it didn't have much to offer. Dublin is very expensive, Guinness between 6-6.50 Euros and a burger and chips at 14.95 euros on average. We were glad we had only booked for 2 nights, this we felt was long enough.

    Lovely hotel all round, very friendly staff in all areas, hotel lovely through out and very clean and tidy in all areas, breakfast full and plentiful along with the food in the bar, great cocktails and service, good location for the tram stop, only a few minutes walk away, for Luas line going into Dublin City, swimming pool etc., open until 9pm, would stay again.

    « 3 nights, 3 different rooms - not a great stay and we can put that entirely down to reception staff »

    I hardly know where to begin with this review. It is in a very industrial area - there is 1 restaurant within walking distance of the hotel should you not wish to eat in the hotel restaurant.There is a 24 hour Mcdonalds and a petrol station nearby but that is it. The red line Luas(tram) stop is Kylemore and is a 5-6 minute walk away and takes about 20-25 minute to reach Abbey Street - the most central stop for O'Connell street and area. The hotel has free wifi throughout - including the rooms. Upon check in I wanted to make sure we had 2 double beds as I was sure that was what I had reserved. The receptionist was probably the most snarly sour receptionist I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with.She pushed a piece of paper - the hotel confirmation of the booking - under my nose with "this is what we have booked for you and this is what your room is - the hotel is totally full and so we cannot offer you any alternative room". We went to our room which,apart from being claustrophobic, had a very low slanting roof that I am sure I would have ended up banging my head on more than a few times being 6'1". As soon as we got in the room it smelt of damp.We immediately left our bags without unlocking them and went back to reception. A rather heated discussion followed with the on-duty manager,David,getting involved and coming up to the room to check and agreeing it did smell damp. Within minutes we were offered an upgraded room - a huge family room - at a reduced additional cost... funny how the hotel that had been totally full 20 minutes earlier when we asked but now this room was suddenly available ???? This new room has two double beds and had clearly been recently renovated and that proved its downfall.Apart from being right by the lift with the "ding ding" noise every time the lift doors opened 24/7 making for a horrendous night sleep for both of us - we had a problem with the shower.The metal surround kept falling away from the the wall but the main problem was the dial turning but the only available temperature was hot ...or off !!! it was not adjustable at all. Three times we reported this to reception and was told each time it had been solved and the metal surround had indeed been returned to the wall only to fall off again each time. They did not know what our problem was because the porter had been and checked and found it perfectly ok... maybe the porter likes scalding hot showers but neither my friend or I do! On the third report(which was early on the second morning as we left for the day) I was told "oh there is a fault on the temperature adjustment we need to order a new part which will not be here for a few days:.... WHY were we not told this the night before ? WHY were we not offered an alternative ? I told them that we wanted to move room again - the shower situation was not acceptable and the ding ding lift was not something we looked forward to having to endure for another night. After a 2 1/2 hour wait between midday and 2.30pm I was told the 3rd room was now ready and stayed in room number 3 which was thankfully much quieter. It was nowhere near as big or luxurious as the room we had been moved to and had 2 single beds and not 2 doubles but by this stage I just wanted a room for 1 more night with a peaceful sleep and not a scalding shower. We did eat in the hotel restaurant/bar and the service was excellent and the food was both fast in arriving,hot and of good quality - sadly this was probably the only good part of our stay. Had it not been for the newly hired manager - David - who really was extremely helpful and in total contrast to the unhelpful,sour,snappy reception staff - our stay would have been truly horrendous. Would we stay here again ? Extremely unlikely.

    « Great deal »

    Sheldon Park Hotel has a great deal for steak on a stone witch is getting more popular in many restaurants. Good size of the steak which comes with 3 sauces, chips and sautéed mushrooms &onions, you cook it as you like it.Friendly staff.The high chair was below the safety standard, my little one wasn't comfortable sitting in it and we were worried that he would fall out. It wasn't very secured.

    « Lovely and luxurious »

    This hotel was lovely, although situated away from town and in a bit of an industrial estate it is a 5 minute walk to the Luas, tram into Dublin, which took about 15 minutes. i would recommend this as a good place to stay in Dublin if you want a nice luxurious hotel and less £££ then in the centre. However the pub had live entertainment which wasn't good at all!! The atmosphere in the pub was a bit rowdy and not really suitable for my teenagers. We were also too late to order anything except Pizza (8:30 pm) from the restaurant, thankfully we all like Pizza, though sitting in the bar area is enough to give you indigestion while you eat! Also the pool, sauna, spa area was really nice, one of the best i've visited, however very disappointing that after a long day in Dublin you can't relax, have a swin / sauna as it closed at 5pm!!

    « Always nice »

    Myself and my husband stay at this hotel quite a few times a year and it's always nice. The staff are helpful and professional and the rooms clean and comfy. My biggest praise goes to the breakfast, there is so much to choose from and the cooked breakfast is cooked fresh. The Luas is just 5 minutes walk so you can leave the car and it's only about 30 minutes into the city centre. We're already booked in for our next stay in September so see you all soon.

    « Dated Hotel, Not Very Close To Central Dublin. »

    The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Dublin city and is a five min walk to the tram which takes you into central Dublin in around 15/20mins. We ate at the hotel on the first night, food was ok, nothing special for the high prices you pay. We really enjoyed the breakfast though and the free spa access! Room was small but was ample for the three nights we stayed.

    « What a shame »

    I booked this trip for my partners 60th birthday and he has been looking forward to it. Our room no 237 was the smallest I have ever stayed in and so hot we couldn't sleep. You can only open the window slightly so no air can come in. The noise from a fan or something from we believe the kitchen as there were two metal funnels next to our rooms went on all night. I have ME and a muscle condition so if I don't sleep I can't walk the next day. The heat and noise caused me so much stress that I was unable to enjoy the next day. The next 2 nights were the same and everyone was complaining about the heat nearby. I feel so sad for my partner as he did not enjoy what was ment to be something special. The staff in the restaurant and food were excellent.

    « Nice country style hotel in the city »

    I stayed for 2 nights i picked here due to location close to motorway and tram line making easy access to the city. Room was spacious and clean and had tea and coffee making available as well as iron. There was reasonable free WiFi which was usable there is leisure centre next door with jazzuai and pool which is good way to unwind. Food in the bar next door was reason typical pub grub. Parking is free and there is plenty of spaces. Breakfast was standard fry and buffet good choice and was nice. Just be aware there is 100 euro pre incidental charge when you check in. When you check out you get it removed from your card. Staff were very friendly and helpful would return again

    There was 8 of us including family and friends over for the weekend. Hotel was gorgeous and staff were excellent, very patient and understanding of us Celtic fans as some of us may have been a bit loud. We used leisure facilities and they were great, really enjoyed the jacuzzi and steam room. Entertainment both nights were fantastic. I've never danced as much in a long time. Hotel was that good, our extended family came from city centre on Sunday for entertainment at night. Would highly recommend and can't thank Elaine and Peter enough for being patient with Martyn..haha.

    I am in the hotel bar as I write this, I am leaving soon to go home and I am sad! I would 100% stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Elaine on reception is an absolute angel and when I told her I was travelling alone due to a recent break up she was so lovely and told me a really inspiring story which I haven't forgotten. Thank you Elaine. Gary and Linda from the bar are incredible. I have loved all my conversations with them and they are an asset to the hotel. They work so hard, I was exhausted watching them as I sat and drank my Jamesons! Thank you both for putting a smile back on my face, you have no idea how much I appreciate you being kind to me. I hope to return next year so have plenty of Jamesons in stock!

    « Not Impressed »

    The room was dingy and needed significant upgrades to meet the standards usually associated with Best Western Hotels. The reception staff was not able to provide details on directions to the train station and the food at the adjoining pub was nothing special. I was glad we had only booked one night, because I was really not impressed with the hotel, it's location and the food.

    Just home from a two night stay in the Sheldon Hotel, really disappointed with the room, very small and a lot of noise outside. The reception staff were not very helpful. I requested extra towels on two occasions but never got them. The bar food was good as were the waiters , however, I would not recommend this hotel to friends.

    « 40th birthday surprise »

    Booked 3 night long weekend over the bank holiday. It cost approximately £103 per night. I called the hotel prior to our arrival to ask for a balloon to be put in the room to celebrate the surprise and it was, perfect! The room was beautiful, a four poster bed, 2 sofas and a table. Although there is a bar underneath with love musicians every weekend, the noise didn't bother us. Breakfast is good but a little expensive 10euros.

    « Nice short break hotel »

    We had chosen this hotel mainly for its location close to the motorway, as we were traveling out of dublin following our stay. The location was still good for exploring Dublin as the tram to the centre of town was only a 2 minute walk away. We were pleasently suprised by the hotel, our room was more than adiquate for a short stay and the breakfast served was of a good standard.

    We stayed here for one night and were not disappointed. This is my third visit to the hotel and still first class. Room was nice and clean. Staff were friendly. Very handy for the trams into the city centre which is about 30 mins away. This is a great out of town hotel and location

    « Very good hotel... »

    We chose this hotel for our one week stay in Dublin because of the good price. We were pleasantly surprised: the staff was helpful and polite, the room was clean and tidy (although the hotel does need a redecoration!). It has the disadvantage of being far from city centre, but it is only 2 minutes walk to the Luas station (Kylemore). So it was very easy to go everywhere in town. And the Luas system works perfectly well. If you only need a good place to sleep and shower, I totally recomend this hotel.

    « A large aging hotel. In need of an update. »

    This hotel,would have been special in the 1980's, but it is now time for some redecoration. It is starting to look worn. WARNING, WARNING, not every room has a shower. We were allocated room 202, which is a tiny room on the top floor at the end of the hotel, with a sloping ceiling that comes back to 3/4 of the way across the room. There was not only no shower but the bathtub only had two taps, no hose and nozzle. We have traveling extensively for a couple of decades to all countries including 3rd world countries. This is the first time we have ever had a room without a shower of some sort. Even in primitive huts and camps showers are provided. We have traveled throughout Ireland and never found this situation before. It was not a late booking, we booked on line months before our arrival. The hotel,did have plenty of parking and a very good wifi. The restaurant staff and food were exceptionally good. But "no shower" kills it for us.

    « A fab deal »

    A friend booked a weekend away for 9 of us on an online deal costing £110 each for 2 nights including breakfast and flights from Manchester. The hotel was approx. 15-20 mins drive from the airport. The staff were friendly and the lady on reception sorted out an error the hotel had made in the number of rooms we had booked. Rooms were really nice, lean and modern with irons, hairdryers and tea and coffee making facilities. The bar/restaurant was lovely and we had a fab meal on our first night there. Most of us opted for the 8oz fillet steak cooked on a hot stone and we all agreed it was out of this world. Other food including breakfast was fab too. Got the tram 5 mins walk from hotel into centre of Dublin costing 4.80 euros.However, discovered later that night that a taxi back was only 15.60 euros. Hotel had entertainment on Fri night which was a bit lame but better than nothing - a couple of guys singing. Saturday night entertainment was more lively - a band playing something for everyone and good enough to dance to. Only downside to our stay was the hotels policy of having to wear bathing caps in the swimming pool Otherwise would highly recommend.

    « Decent hotel »

    Had never stayed here before but decided to give it a try because of lack of availablility closer to city centre for a night out in Dublin. Location is really not an issue because of its closeness to the Luas stop which will get you right into O Connell St very quickly/ Over all I would stay again if the price was right.

    On first feelings. It looked lovely Unfortunately we were shown a room that over looked a small dirty yard with a dog that barked constantly. When reported I got . Sorry sir but it isn't our dog!! I asked for a recommendation for local pub for good food. To our horror the taxi driver said if we had took the hotels advice we would have been I'm serious trouble. It was the roughest unwelcoming bar in Dublin. We were less than happy. He took us to a lovely place. Anyway.. Hotel nice. Food acceptable. Staff not so nice and knowledge very poor. To far from any interesting places.

    I bought my mother a €250 voucher for the Sheldon park as a birthday present. She went to the hotel in December 2015 and they were asked to put a credit card on the room. They used the voucher at the end of their stay and were told it wasn't valid and payment had to be taken from the credit card, after much back and forth with an extremely rude and abrupt receptionist got the manager (Valerie) who was very nice and said that the problem had been solved and money was going back on the credit card, still waiting 4 months later, rang back and got the extremely unhelpful rude receptionist again! was informed there was a new manager when asked for message to be left with the manager of course the receptionist didn't bother, still waiting for payment or anyone to contact me back after trying multiple times to leave a message for the new manager.

    This hotel was great to stay in. So clean and tidy. Staff were unreal very polite. We also ate in hotel restaurant and it was first class. The only bad things I can say about it is the swimming pool is outside in another building, we never got told it was compulsory to wear a swimming hat in pool-which you have to buy at €2 each and when you arrive, as well as paying for your stay they hold €50 on your bank card incase of any damages etc which I fully understand but all these hidden charges are unfair! But if you have the cash to splash then this hotel is for you!

We also traveled into Dublin which took no more than 15 mins.Overall the hotel was well worth the money with a good location.

    Chose this hotel because we like Best Western hotels and it was not far to see our friends. Most Best Western hotels are of a good standard and this hotel is no exception. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room we were given was of an excellent standard. The dinners we ate in the bar/ restaurant were not expensive and very tasty, being served by attentive waiters. Breakfast was partly buffet style ( ie.cereals, fruit, continental food etc.) with cooked breakfast orders being taken by waitresses. Perhaps a couple more waitresses would maybe help the present staff who sometimes seemed rushed off their feet. Having said that, breakfast was again very enjoyable. Would definitely stay again

    « A VERY PLEASANT STAY. »

    We stayed here for seven nights and we were very satisfied. We stayed in room 255. Very spacious and kept incredibly clean and tidy, by the attentive staff. The only criticism we could have is that the room is dark and gets no sunshine, through the one small window. The bathroom is also very spacious, with a large, "quick filling" bath, with an overhead shower. I would suggest, that some sort of extractor might be a good idea. Towels and bed linen are changed regularly and all in all, we had a very comfortable stay. Other reviewers have said that the walls of the hotel are thin and this is, most certainly, the case but we didn`t find it a problem. In fact the "Bing Bong" of the lift arriving, on the second floor, at about 7-30, in the morning serves as a good alarm call! The food here is absolutely delicious. We had the "Sheldon Breakfast" every morning, with the addition of some toast and baked beans and that really served to set us up, for the day. The evening meals, in the restaurant and bar, are to die for. In particular, the pork ribs and "steak on a stone" were enjoyed by yours truly! The bar serves as good a pint of Guinness as you will get anywhere and the hard working staff are very accommodating, (I must give a mention to Martin, who is literally "all over you" working at 200 miles per hour!) Yes, indeed, we enjoyed the Sheldon and would most certainly return there, if we visit the area again. (I must say though that this is quite unlikely, as Dublin is a very expensive place to holiday.)

    Best Western Sheldon Park is a most charming place to stay. The lobby and rooms contain features that you would expect to find in a high end hotel. The staff is friendly, cordial, and helpful. Breakfasts at the hotel are traditional offering a wide range of meats that include bangers, black pudding, and Irish sausages. The pastries are exceptional. Amenities include a pool and fitness center. Great fun for the entire family. Buses and trains are in close proximity to transport you to the city center, my recommended way to travel in Dublin.

    « Great location and experience! »

    We spent our first night in Ireland here and returned for our last two also. They allowed us to drop off our luggage hours before check in and we used the lobby restrooms to clean up after our flight from the USA. It was easy to get into downtown Dublin by tram, and just a block and a half from the hotel to the tram stop. Breakfast was great, with both a continental buffet and hot items available to order. It was not included with our package but available for 10 euro each if you booked at checkin. We did, but by the end of the trip we were a bit tired of big breakfasts. The beds were comfortable, showers clean with good water pressure, and we never heard any noise. My only complaint is fairly typical in Great Britian...why is there no top sheet? Your choice is no cover at all, or a 4 inch duvet which left us way too hot. We have relatives in London and know they also have no top sheet, but we are always perplexed.

    We booked a triple room directly through their web site. When we arrived they informed us that they didn't have a room for us as they were sold out.

There is great Wifi and onsite parking at the hotel. The rooms were very clean and spotless.

    Stayed in the Sheldon last weekend for 2 nights with a friend. Very comfortable clean quiet & spacious room. Check in staff were very friendly as we're bar/restaurant staff. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel but ate twice in the bar, both meals were of a good standard, and the kitchen staff were very accommodating to us on the Sunday - we really wanted salad but carvery was the only option, so they very kindly made up 2 salad plates for us. The Luas stop is a 3 minute walk from the hotel and there is also a 24 hr McDonald's & garage on the doorstop. The leisure centre looked really nice, lovely pool area but we didn't have time to try it out. Would definitely stay here again.

    We had a very good stay there. Our room was on ground floor which was fine with us. Sometimes noisy with trucks in morning but nothing bad. Comfortable room with very good house keeping staff. Breakfast just wonderful every morning. A restaurant in separate area for public and hotel guests and food very good. Also had an oval bar and done up quite nice with what looked like original wood etc. So was front lobby and grand staircase, A connivance store across the street and tram only a couple of blocks away. It would take you to downtown and you could walk over foot bridge to older and new section of Dublin. Hotel staff very accommodating. Would very much like to stay there again. We stayed 5 nights. Booked 6 so room would be ready when we got in from United States at early hour. The jet lag. Could see the sights and take the tram without a car rental if you wanted to stay in Dublin. They had fitness center next door. On busy street but could not hear noise from cars inside. Places to see before downtown just by getting off tram. Hotel was helpful on places to see.

    « Good location ..... that's about all. »

    Stayed here for two nights - and wish I hadn't. We attempted to check in, the lady was distracted as she continued to get (and answer calls). Not enough staff put on reception for what was an incredibly busy weekend in Dublin with two huge concerts on! She was pleasant, and tried as hard as possible. Charged a pre authorisation amount, with no explanation as to why or when this would be refunded. Luckily I regularly stay in hotels for business, so know this is standard (explanations and expectations being set are often appreciated though!). Rooms are far too hot, with tiny windows and no air con throughout the entire hotel -a member of staff also told us they were extremely uncomfortable too. I know air con wasn't advertised, but it is expected as the norm now....or at least have windows that open more than a crack. Noise levels were horrendous. With bangs of bottles smashing outside the rooms and wafer thin walls so you can hear fellow guests conversations. Worse though, is none of the doors have rubber at the bottom to prevent them banging. So, no matter how you try the doors will bang at all hours. Breakfast, if you can call it that was HORRIFIC. Only good thing was the supermarket bread and butter which we used to make toast! The eggs were overcooked and inedible, sausages cheap and bitter tasting,bacon tough and chewy due to overcooking, and they forgot to give me a hash brown. When I asked for it, it was practically thrown at me. Staff seemed disinterested, fed up, and overworked. One good thing is a lovely lady (Elaine I think her name was), who heard about our breakfast experience and approached us herself to ask for feedback to pass to the chef. She was apologetic, and if only you had more of her (and a more up to date hotel) I'd stay again! She is a credit to you and the only reason this review doesnt get 1 out 5. On a side note, the restraunt for evening meals was LOVELY food and fantastic service.

    « Hardworking staff let down by bad management and an aged hotel »

    The majority of staff at this hotel did everything in their power to make the our trip as pleasurable as possible however it was clear from the moment we tried checking in and had the receptionist stop and answer the phone numerous times due to being the only member of staff on the front desk at a full hotel that they were chronically short staffed. The excuse that they were fully booked doesn't wash with me, when Beyoncé and Stone Roses are in town and your hotel is fully booked the management should staff accordingly. The rooms are aged, with no air con and tiny windows, mattresses and pillows which are possibly worst the cheapest and poorest quality available on the market. Breakfast was a sorry affair with loaves of Aldi bread, rock solid croissants and pastries, cheap generic catering sausages with the over powering taste of white pepper and scrambled egg which could have bounced if dropped on the floor - setting the tone of the quality you can expect at this hotel, served by stressed, over worked, and seemingly uninterested staff members. Saturday night was a sleepless event due in part to drunken guests which in fairness to the hotel is to be expected (but the wafer thin walls and lack of door closers hardly helped) and after complaining to the night porter was quickly resolved. BUT the fact that the bar staff was empting the bottle bins after midnight into the main recycling bins in the car park directly under rooms is inexcusable and further compounded by the heat in the rooms which could not be resolved. On a positive note dinner was excellent and the majority of the staff couldn't do enough to assist given the constraints imposed on them. A letter of complaint will be sent and my experience at this hotel means I am unlikely to risk using this international group of hotels again.

    « Good location, Rooms quite small and thin walls »

    Based outside the city centre but very easy to get to from the tram red line from the centre or various bus's also run to near the hotel, a taxi from temple bar cost us about €13 in the evening, Staff at the hotel were very friendly and offered us a double room instead of the twin which we had booked. One thing was when we booked through travel republic we were not told about the security deposit of €50 a night which was required at check in. The room was in great condition but slightly small which wasn't helped by the sloping ceiling , however the tv signal did seem to vary throughout the night. The only bad thing were the walls must of been very thin as you could hear people having a normal volume conversation very easily which when you were trying to get an early night wasn't very helpful, if sound proofing was installed it would be 5* rating instead. If you are travelling from the airport on public transport and staying for 2 nights i'd recommend getting a Leap 3 day visitor pass it is €19 which you can purchase at the airport and it will then give you free return travel on the airport bus into dublin centre and then unlimited travel on the trams, bus's and trains within dublin.

    If you're happy to use the LUAS transport system in and out of the city, this is a good hotel for a stay in Dublin, near the motorway and easy to find. The rooms were pleasant the service was good, staff very helpful. Good value for money overall

    « Good location.. That's about it »

    We stayed here because we had a concert in the Royal hospital which was handy to commute to as hotels in the kilmainham area are very expensive. Parking was free and there was a petrol station across to road to get breakfast to avoid the extortionate on price of €12.95 for breakfast. Room was very small and basic. Cleaner knocked on three separate occasions for no apparent reason. I found the reception and bar staff not particularly friendly. And they charge €10 to extend check out by one hour! Wouldn't recommend folks..

    The Sheldon hotel is only a 5 min walk to the tramline that takes you straight to the heart of Dublin. It has big and spacious rooms and very friendly staff.

    « Brilliant stay »

    Was made very welcome . Reception staff extremely helpful and sorted out brollies for a wet trip to the zoo had to leave a small deposit but was returned on return of the brollie. Close to tram line and easy to get to from the city. Food was really good and waiting staff even when busy were polite and we have had really good service. We have stayed 2 night's over this weekend and had live entertainment both nights- not really to our taste but was still enjoyable - personal preferences only on this one. Room was nicely decorated and clean with a bath and shower. Toiletries were provided. Room had a bit of a low beam but did not detract from the size a decent double. No picturesque views but not to be expected as in the city outskirts. On a whole a lovely hotel with pleasant and accommodating staff. Thanks for the stay.

    We stayed at the The Best Western, Sheldon Park for 2 nights. Finding it from the airport wasn't straight forward but once we found it and got our bearings it was easy travelling in and out of Dublin. The tram system is excellent. The hotel, in my opinion, is a little dated, but my husband would disagree. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the room was quite spacious and clean and the food was excellent, especially the steak on a stone - wonderful!! All in all we had 3 great days in Dublin.

    « Easy access to the light rail but... »

    Ok, so it's just a short walk to the Luas, that's the local light rail that goes right into the city of Dublin, and from there only a short walk to most major sights in the city. From those stops in the city you can also get to the day tour pickup points like the the most used one near the Molly Malone statue. That being said the hotel is located in a pretty iffy area, not one I would like to spend much time in after dark. The hotel itself is fine, safe, clean and the staff is wonderful. If I go back to Dublin, and we would like to very much I think we would stay closer to the downtown area, and at that on the south side of the river.

    « Ok »

    We stayed here on our last night in Dublin. The hotel was ok reasonably clean and within easy access to Dublin city if you have a car. The hotel had had some kind of problem with their gas, so when walking up to our room the whole corridor smelt like gas. My husband went down to speak to reception about it. Reception was very unhelpful stating they were dealing with the problem and the smell should go soon. We were staying with two small children so I would have preferred to move rooms away from the smell. We went down to have dinner in their restaurant which was advertising amazing looking steaks only to be told that over half the menu was not available due to this gas problem. Perhaps it was just bad timing for us, however no extra care was taken to make our stay a more comfortable one.

    « Dull, but functional. »

    Rooms are big and have all you'd need. Corridors are large, doors are heavy and noisy so don't count on a lie-in. Bar is very big, used by locals and serves decent bar meals. Local area is v.dull but the tram is only a 10 minute walk.

    Overnight stay with family in order to visit Dublin. Hotel was easy to find and convenient for the Luas. Rooms were very comfortable and plenty big enough. Food was good. We had breakfast included but had dinner in the bar and it was very good, and not ridiculously expensive. The entertainment in the bar on Saturday night was great. All staff very friendly. Overall a great stay.

    « Money for nothing »

    Be aware that this hotel takes money up front for what you might possibly spend during your stay. €50 was extracted from my bank despite absolutely categorical assurances that no transaction would be completed until after checkout. Wrong; when I checked my account (within 3 hours of checkout), the full €50 had been taken, PLUS I also have another VISA debit transaction ticket for €40, which was supposed to be the total. So I will probably end up paying €90 for a €40 bill. So watch out, you may well feel very aggrieved when your get your bank or credit card statement. Also, have you known any hotel that can't fry or poach an egg, even when it is listed on the menu? The excuse was a cooker hob problem, but all other hot food was available, and other cooking facilities were there (such as the carvery), so it doesn't quite stack up that only scrambled eggs and bacon could be provided! Room acceptable, but silly things such as toilet rolls jammed solidly onto a holder that could only take a roll with a few sheets left (due to stupidly located holder), just means that the operation does not actually have a common sense brain to apply to such simple things. Very sad.

    An excellent hotel with wonderful staff, we arrived around 10pm to be greeted warmly by the wonderful lady on reception. Once checked in we were provided with a city map for the next day and directions to the Dublin bound tram stop less than 5 minutes walk away. The whole experience in this hotel wasfantastic great staff, food, atmosphere and leisure facilities would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Dublin. A wonderful hotel in every way.

    -terrible location -extremely hot in room, no air conditioning, no possibility to open the windows -appalling breakfast (low quality food, limited choice) -staff does not particularly make any extra effort to help (e.g. when we asked reception to book us a taxi because we had a business meeting, we were told that we had to wait 30 minutes..unacceptable!!!) definitely would not recommend.

    Stayed here for 2 nights. Arrived to check in and wasn't really happy that we had to let the hotel take like 45 pound out my account and hold it incase we buy anything and put it to our room we wasn't told we had to do this on booking the hotel. This is my only fault to the hotel Hotel is in a great location from Dublin center which is only like a 2 min walk to the tram station then your only on the train for like 10 mins then your on the main area of dublin and it is also very cheap Bed was really comfortable and room was very spacious and a big 32 inch tv also had a lovely bathroom with a bath/shower In with the hotel price the leisure was included so gym/pool/sauna/steam room If u do use the facilities you will need to buy a swim cap which is €2

    « Not really up to Best Western standard!! »

    Situated in a good location with easy access to Dublin city centre. Reception staff not very friendly. After a tiring day in Dublin just wanted to have a shower and relax for a while but the room hadn't been serviced-so no clean towels. The next day room had been serviced but there were no clean cups and glasses.

    « Great hotel not too far from centre »

    Don't be put off by the location! Dublin has great transport links with a frequent tram and bus stop a 5 minute stroll down the road. It took is about 30 minutes to reach the centre. Our room was a good size and had everything you could need. Was quite dark however and the shower was very stiff to turn on. Good water pressure if you manage to turn the dial enough with a bit of elbow grease. Spa was good, pool was a nice temperature, as was the hot tub. Steam room was as expected but the sauna is on the small side and can get quite full. Should we visit Dublin again we would come back. Much better price and quieter than being right in the centre.

    A hotel which exceeded both mine and my girlfriend's expectations. Very close to Kylemore Luas stop and you're then in Dublin city centre within 20 minutes. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We are and drank in the bar and found it very fairly priced. The Guinness was superb and was the best pint I had outside of the storehouse itself. Thanks Best Western Sheldon Park for a lovely 3 night stay!

    « Good distance from centre and not too expensive »

    I paid £112 for two nights room only and I was generally satisfied. The hotel is about 2 minutes walk from the Luas stop 'Kylemore' which will have you in central Dublin in about 25 mins. The room was a twin, basic and an okay size with a good size bathroom. There was a TV with all the Irish channels plus some music channels and BBC Northern Ireland and Channel 4 as well others which seemed to have the same content as ITV in the UK. The signal wasn't great and you might have to flick around the channels to get a clear reception for the whole programme. Also for some reason the TV signal went out when I used the hairdryer! The curtains in my room didn't extend all the way to the wall which meant a shaft of orange light all night and then a shaft of daylight when the sun came up. Add to this the noise of people slamming doors and coming up from the bar and I didn't get a great night's sleep on the first night, although I got used to it on the second. I didn't use the restaurant or bar but it seemed the usual pub grub fayre at prices between 13 and 20 euro for a main course (Although when my bag came back from the left luggage room it came with a free piece of bacon stuck to the bottom. I didn't try it.) There is a cafe and a 24 Hour McDonalds across the road, as well as two garages selling snacks and drinks.

    Just a short tram ride from Dublin city centre this hotel is clean,comfortable and charming.our room was a good size and was equipped with tea/coffee making facility's. The restaurant serves a selection of food,generous portions and reasonable prices,the waitering staff were efficent and friendly.Breakfast is served until ten and there is a wide choice.my one criticism would be that the reception staff could be a bit more welcoming/friendly.

    « Book somewhere else. Poor/rude staff and inadequate room »

    Upon entering the hotel I was asked for the card I had booked the hotel on which I provided, the receptionist followed this by attempting to charge me £100 without even explaining anything just asking me to enter my pin. When I questioned this they explained very reluctantly that this was a deposit which is nearly double what I had paid for the room. The room it self is very nicely presented however as everything in this hotel, 'half-a-job'. The small window opens exactly by one centimetre which in the heat of summer made it almost unbearable and our entire view from which was a brick wall. Hot drinks/kettle are provided however they advertise as kenco but provide a much cheaper brand. The toilet seat was not even attached to the toilet, just resting on top, and the chair was just as obviously broken collapsing when I sat on it. I suffer from MS and this incident nearly caused me to relapse due to the sudden pain in my back. In the morning we had booked breakfast and therefore arrived downstairs around 7:30 for the buffet. The waiting staff were rude and when my brother ordered some hot food; 5 hash browns, 3 sausage and 2 eggs (this is not available with the cereal, fruit and toast) they openly mocked him at the table making remarks about him training to be a boxer and being greedy. He finished everything and had a bowl of cereal. The only reason for this being 2* not 0 is cause of the leisure complex next door (full gym, pool, jacuzzi and sauna/steam room) but as always the staff... They assumed my brother was under 16, which he isn't, refused to let me hang the swimming shorts out to dry anywhere before departing and do not provide lockers unless you have your own lock. Unless you can book this hotel for under £50 I would not recommend it to anyone, it is miles from anything except McDonald's and the staff are unaccomodating.

    « Mixed Review »

    We were booked into this hotel as part of a 'Woucher' deal. I wasn't expecting a suite but room was not good. Room 235, 2nd floor. No ventilation. Skylight 15ft above room with a blind ridiculously difficult to operate. Blind open = greenhouse, blind closed = dark and dingy. No way of opening skylight. Very small room. Extractor fans in both bedroom & bathroom didn't work. Shower intermittent. At certain angles it went off for a second every 4-5 seconds, which was annoying at best. As a result of no ventilation room smelt stale and damp. Breakfast selection nice and cooked breakfast good, came out piping hot. Worth the €10. Restaurant food nice and not ridiculously priced. Some staff could do with some customer service training as abrupt, a smile wouldn't go a miss. Good location. Tram stop 5/7 mins walk. Tram then took 20/25 mins into centre. Hotel not in a tourist area. Didn't use spa facilities. Heard that you couldn't hire towels so didn't bother. Thankfully had 3 glorious sunny days so out from after breakfast until night so room didn't spoil the break too much.

    Hotel is beautiful. The room was huge along with the wet room. We stayed for 3 nights, towels were changed each day, bed was remade and bottles of water replaced with new ones along with the tea and coffee items and 2 little chocolates. It was clean and well kept. The bar and restaurant was enjoyable and the dinner was great (we had pizza). We also had breakfast each morning, the cooked breakfast was nice, however if there's an item that you don't want (like black pudding) it isn't replaced with extra of another item so only buy if you'll eat it all, however the other 2 mornings we had the continental breakfast and that was delishious. There's a swimming pool within the hotel, however we didn't use it as it is compulsory to wear a swimming hat in all Irish pools. The trams system is not even 5 minute walk away from the hotel and gets you into the centre of Dublin within half an hour.

    « Good hotel with a couple minor issues. »

    We stayed here for a short three night holiday while touring the Dublin area. Pros: spacious room with plenty of room for our family of three. Comfortable and clean bedding. Use of next door leisure center is a nice perk. Pool was fun for our five year old. Free parking and close to major roads and restaurants. Cons: The shower pressure was odd and would come and go. Temperature good, but pressure unreliable. There is live music in the bar on Saturday and Sunday nights, which seems nice, but not if you have a room where you can hear said music late into the night. Music was far too loud even in our second floor room.

    « Don't Book For Family or friends »

    I booked the hotel through Expedia and paid by Paypal, for my son, his partner and granddaughter who was going for a checkup following heart surgery at Crumlin Children's Hospital nearby to save them an early morning journey. On arrival they were told they needed the card it was booked with, which they didn't have and couldn't get as I, (and they) live a hundred miles away. They were then asked for £100 which they hadn't got either. After speaking with the manager the receptionist eventually let them in. Not good practice, caused a lot of annoyance both to me, my son and family. I have booked them other hotels where this wasn't a prerequisite.

    « City visit »

    This hotel is ideal for exploring Dublin and all it has to offer. We had a large spotlessly clean room on the 2nd floor with two king size beds (for just the two of us) and all the other trappings of a good Hotel. It was nice to be able to see views from the front and side from two different windows. There were plentiful parking bays. The staff were very polite and helpful and the restaurant food excellent and not overly priced. The first evening, having spent a great day in the City, I had a king prawn curry which was delicious. Having mentioned the upside, there unfortunately is a down side if you do not like loud music. Being tourist and only in Dublin for two nights, we wanted to have a decent nights sleep whilst seeing the sites of Dublin and before our road tour of Ireland. Bearing this in mind, it is unwise to visit this hotel Friday thru Sunday when they have a live band/group playing. We were not able to sleep to well passed 1am. On the first night we not only had the noise to contend with till 1am, but someone started up a vacuum cleaner at 0530. This I took up with the night manager, who apologised. Travel to and from the hotel was easy. Having negotiated the menu on the local tram stop the 25 min return fair was only euro 4.90. I would fully recommend this hotel, but not Friday thru Sunday (if you want a good nights sleep) hence the reason I have given a 4* rating and not a 5.

    I love this place. I took my girlfriend to Ireland, and hoped to find a nice romantic place to propose to her. I like the character of the Hotel itself so much that I did it in the Restaurant. She said yes, and the Staff were so happy for us. They even left a congratulation note in our room for us. It was as if we'd become part of a big family there. Lovely place, with lovely staff. Top food, and service in all departments. WILL BE GOING AGAIN !!!!

    Situated about two miles from the city centre, the hotel was well served by bus and tram services. From the moment you checked in at reception, the staff went out of their way to ensure you had a relaxing and stress free stay. Service was prompt, friendly and courteous. Food was tasty, well presented and hot on arrival to the table. . It's the first time that a waiter brought a taster of the sauce for us to try as we thought it could have been too spicy. Attention to detail was obvious . The bedrooms and shared spaces were very clean and tidy, with plenty of comfortable chairs available and side tables in the lounge and reception areas. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely return.

    We stayed in this hotel a number of years ago, it always stuck in our minds as a hotel to return to. But sadly not this time, the hotel it's self was much the same as the last time, well kept lovely bar and food area and really nice staff. But the leisure centre, if I can even call it a leisure centre because there was nothing of leisure about going to the centre. Apart from the lockers seen better days, the pool was absolutely freezing and apparently it's ALWAYS like this. So we quickly had a little swim, it was very uncomfortable. We headed for the showers thinking we could warm ourselves up, sadly this was not the case. They went from warm to cold, mostly cold. Then we had to stand out in a cold dressing room to dry ourselves. We were there for 3 days and that was the only time we used it. And it was the reason we went back to this hotel. The hotel as I said is lovely and really well located for traveling in and out of the city centre by tram, but the leisure centre is a big let down, it seems to have gone down hill in the last 3 years since we were there. Book this hotel for the hotel not if you like your swimming.

    The hotel was nice and clean. The staff was helpful, but the phone did not work in the room and the issue was not addressed.

    Although this hotel is outside of the centre of Dublin there are excellent transport links with the Luas (tram) stop just down the road and will take you to the city for a couple of quid in about 15 minutes. The hotel has a fantastic staircase with beautiful chandeliers in the reception areas. The rooms are spotlessly clean, maybe a little dated but they are really comfortable and everything you need including the option of smoking or non-smoking rooms. The bar has an amazing atmosphere and entertainment was provided for both the friday and saturday nights we were there, it seems that a lot of locals come here for a night out as it became very busy on the saturday night with people dancing to the live band. I must stress just how amazing the food is here....literally superb food. We ate there on Friday night, the steaks were perfect, even the chips were perfect and the food was presented beautifully. Saturday morning, we went for breakfast and rather than the usual buffet style hot breakfast, someone came and took our order and it was made fresh to order with the best eggs EVER!! I really can't say anything bad about this hotel other than that our room was in the eaves and with the slanted wall I walked from the bedroom to the bathroom and nearly knocked myself out as I hit my head on the wall (after a few drinks) so be careful. The barmen are not young kids here and really grafted to ensure that everyone got served, the service was fantastic and very friendly.

    Had a lovely stay at this hotel, the rooms were comfortable and spacious. Only negatives were that the bath towels were not big enough, they were pretty much the same size as the hand towels and the main room was quite cold even though the radiator was on high. But we asked for extra blankets at night and the staff brought them up to us within ten minutes! We also asked for soya milk for the tea and coffee and they brought it up to us straight away. The hotel is in a perfect location for the tram stop and they run frequently. The area itself was not the best but it was close to the city centre. The hotel also has a large leisure centre but we did not have time to use this.

    Stayed here for 2 nights, found the location fine for my needs, near the luas line so youll be in town in about 10/15 mins.. the room I found to be basic enough, nothing special.. Price was reasonable for the two nights. The food however was absolutely terrible, I ate in the bar and ordered the pasta bake, it was basically pasta, broccoli and chicken swimming in water, and the broccoli was all burnt!! I couldn't eat it and complained to the waitress she was apologetic and asked if I wanted something else but I declined.. I went to settle my bill for my drinks and was told I had to pay for my food, I refused and asked to speak with a manager, I was told there was none working until the morning. The waitress then said she had to put the food bill on my room but it could be sorted in the morning and that she would inform reception.. needless to say in the morning there was no manager and the reception staff had no knowledge of my issue.. I ended up being charged for the terrible so called food. Hotel is fine for cheap accommodation at that side of the city, but you're better off eating at McDonald's down the road..

There were plenty of tourists eating and drinking in the hotel. The Guinness seemed to be a particular favorite among them! There was a band on the evening of the party and they were very good. Would definitely attend a function here again.

    « Very good value for money. »

    We stay at the Sheldon Park each time we visit family at that part of Dublin. It's not in a very nice place, in the middle of something like an industrial area in Ballyfermot in the West of Dublin. But it's convenient if you need to be in the area. It's not too far from the centre, probably about 30 minutes if you are prepared to tolerate Dublin traffic and, or a bit longer if you saw public transport. We stayed in different rooms in the hotel and they are mostly good size and comfortable. They are very good value for money. Breakfast room and service are good and for dinner there is a pub restaurant at the hotel. The decor is a bit outdated but it is clean and reliable, the service is excellent and the prices are fair.

    « Absolutely disgusting »

    I recently stayed and was amazed to find out on arrival that hotels still have smoking rooms. The room was disgusting. The smell hit me as I walked in. Everything was covered with a strong smell of smoke. The curtains and even the bedding. They refused to move us and we couldn't find another hotel at midnight so were forced to sleep in it. Luckily we could wash the smell of us in the morning and moved rooms. After a complaint the company offered me £20 and the hotel refused to reply to the complaint. Shockingly bad after care. Will certainly never stay again.

    Hotel clean and beds comfortable. Room big enough and plenty of space for luggage. A little noisy in a morning due to the business estate next door. Not in city centre but with excellent transport links by bus and tram.

    Nothing bad to say about the Sheldon park hotel, breakfast was lovely rooms nice and warm and a comfy bed. We did not use the pool etc that was in a separate building next door. The tram line is 5 mins away and so easy to use. Public transport is expensive but taxis are crazy prices.

    « Near N7 & Crumlin hospital »

    After reading room suggestions we opted for the 'luxury' rooms on the ground floor. Room is small but very clean. Comfortable bed and pillows. Away from bar area. The bar is more of a 'local' than a hotel bar. Not my cup of tea but if you're in your 60s and like dancehall music you'll love it. Very pleasant chap at reception (scibol?) and evening bar food supervisor Slobodan is very helpful and friendly. Basic but fine if you book the right room and close to children's hospital.

    « A very good bad stay »

    After a first night spent in a cold room (broken window catch) and hard beds we asked for either the problems to be fixed or a new room. On complaining, they asked us to pack our things and that they would move us. On return that night they said that we had the same room but the problems had been fixed. Another very cold night on hard beds and again they asked us to pack and we would be moved. When we returned that evening no one knew anything and my wife got cross and this worked!! Pity because the bar and restaurant service were quite good. All let down at reception I'm afraid.

    « Good Hotel for the Business Traveler »

    I stay here whenever I am in Dublin. The prices are reasonable because its well out of the city centre, and the area around the hotel could not be called picturesque, on the busy Kylemore road. So why do I stay here whenever I am in Dublin. Simple, it ticks all the boxes that the business traveler could want. Nice rooms, particularly if you go for the executive rooms. Decent food and well served in the busy and friendly bar. The location is good, particularly for south Dublin and the M50. Easy and Good parking and the use of the leisure centre next door. But perhaps above all they make you feel like a friend. So why not 5 stars. Well, I guess that unless you are on business and unless you have a car, you may find the location not the best for you. Other than that I think its great, and will continue to stay here each time I am over on business.

    « Nice base for Dublin »

    Stayed for one night after a late flight from the UK. Nice hotel, quite a big room with a double and single bed. Very good base for exploring Dublin the next day (tram stop around the corner, about 20 minutes to city centre). Good breakfast, with continental options and a selection of hot cooked to order items. Was no problem to leave our car at the hotel whilst exploring the city.

    « Grand, comfortable and quiet »

    Step through the entrance doors and you'll be impressed by the grand reception hall with it's sweeping staircase and marble statues and vases. This is a large hotel and at first the room locations may be confusing, but once you've located yours, it's easy to home in. The rooms are a good size, airy and comfortable with plenty of storage. The hotel location is a fair ways west of the city centre, but this means that it's quieter than staying closer in - if you're relying on public transport as we did, a short walk to the main road will allow you to catch the nos 13 or 69 bus into the city.

    « Staff were brilliant, great day »

    We recently had a family party here. Couldn't fault the food or service & Greg the restaurant manager really went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed on the day. Several family members stayed in the hotel & all had good things to say (although I didn't stay over myself, so can't comment on rooms/beds etc personally). We had about 60 people at our party & felt the space we had catered well for our needs. Food arrived hot & tasty and was complimented all round. The location of the hotel won't suit everyone, but if you have an event close by/want something near the luas for city centre access it's perfect.

    « City break at Sheldon Park »

    Traditional hotel located in the suburbs with lots of car dealers and Homebase nearby - no park and nothing of interest but that's OK for a short stay and it was quiet. Found a good deal for 2 nights B & B that would probably cost twice as much in the city centre for the same quality. Take the red tram from the city to Kylemore stop - it is very efficient and takes 30 mins, and there seemed to be 1 every 5 minutes in the day (10 mins at night). 5 minute walk to hotel past MacDonalds. If you are staying at this hotel definitely get a Leap card for transport (19.50 euros for 72 hours) and includes the 747 bus to/from the airport into the city. Buy at the airport. There is also a Freedom Pass if you want the hop on/off tourist bus. Both great value. At the hotel the staff were nice, the room clean, beds comfortable. Toiletries provided and towels changed daily. Breakfast was excellent - cold buffet + cooked options with enough choice for anyone. The Irish sausages were particularly tasty. On arrival day we had the Early Bird meal deal - 2 courses for 17 euros, available till 6pm. The Thai chicken starter was nice, although very mildly flavoured. The main course of fish and chips was delicious - beautifully cooked fish and the chunky chips had a hint of curry powder - sounds odd but was lovely. This wasn't particularly well advertised - found a menu on a small table by the lift. Sadly didn't have time to try the pool etc.

    « Great stay, helpful staff »

    Clean and welcoming staff! A tram near by for a few euros will get you to the city centre. Had no problems with my stay and would book again. Wonderful visit in Dublin. Recommend eating at Cabanas just across the street opposed to buying the meal.

    « Sheldon park »

    The hotel was lovely, bedrooms compact but clean. Breakfast fab, but no windows in dining room so very claustrophobic. View over the back of hotel n rooftops-not the prettiest, tho you wouldn't stay in this hotel for the view! staff on reception friendly though they had the most miserable bar staff I'd ever seen, especially Martin and the small bar manager!! Never seen them crack a smile. I rang the hotel (and best western themselves) to check distance from airport and the best way to transfer. Twice I was told it was approx 6 miles, it even says 10 km on their off all website, and they advised to just get a taxi which would cost bout 20 euros. This is not true! It is at least double this distance and cost us 48 euros one way then 55 euros back, a big cost on a cheap last minute break. If I'd known the true distance I could have booked something else. Also the hotel driver Paul ran us into the city centre (again at least 20 min away in a car) and charged us 18 euro but we were only charged 14 back,! Moral of the tale-hotel taxi rips you off. Overall the hotel is fine, but too far out of city centre unless money is no option. Also be aware taxis are more expensive after 8 pm and Saturday/Sunday. It's a Very expensive country. Dublin city centre drinks very expensive 17 euros for two pints. Save your money and go abroad, at least you will get some sun

    « Comfortable stay with an online voucher deal »

    We were booked in for 2 nights for a weekend break. We were on the second floor - the hotel has a stunning central staircase but there is also a lift! The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Comfortable surroundings. Our room faced the back of the hotel and rather disappointingly only had a dormer window in the ceiling with a sky view!! Restricted headroom at one side of the bed with potential for sustaining a head injury if over 5ft 6''! Also my husband likes a dark room at night to sleep and there was no possibility of a curtain or blind to shut out the light. The room was otherwise comfortable with a nice firm bed and good pillows. The bathroom was spacious but it was quite difficult to get into the bath to have a shower as the side of the bath was quite high (i'm 5'6'') and nothing to hold onto. Bit precarious for the elderly or infirm. The bathroom smelt a bit musty -?from drains. We dined one night in the bar lounge which was quite enjoyable. There was live entertainment at weekends. We paid 10 Euros for breakfast which was most enjoyable with a good cold and hot selection. Sadly we did not have the opportunity to try out the leisure facilities which are in a separate building at the side of the hotel. It is about a 10min. walk to the bus stop for a no.13 bus into citycentre (takes about 20-30mins) or the Luas tram. Within that 10mins there is a restaurant across the road which does quite a good breakfast , and there is a MacDonalds. The Luas Tram in the opp.direction will take you 1 stop to Red Cow Luas where you have choice of 2 buses to airport every half hr which takes 20-30mins. (check trams not on strike!!)

    « Fab Hotel, worth the stay! »

    we have just returned from an easter weekend trip to Dublin, we had all been before but never stayed here before, it was 20 minutes out right near a tram stop and a McDonalds 24 hours! It was easy to get to dublin and back, make sure you get a Leap Visitor Card, well worth the money as covers all trams buses and trains. The hotel was very big, very nice, with a huge welcoming Bar! bar staff friendly, always chatty, the food was so good we ate here every night! there was also live bands at the weekend, but it can get very busy so try and get to the bar early if you want a good seat to see the bands! it was reasonably priced for drinks we paid about 20 euros for 4 drinks which for Dublin is not that bad. My only issue was the room we were in 203 on 2nd floor, the room was very small compared to my friends room, and we had to move the bed as the roof came down in part of the room, on a slope, the mattress were rock hard, some may like that but I don't! and the pillows were very hard and uncomfy, so next time ill bring my own. I would definitely stay again, we used the pool which was lovely, had a jacuzzi and sauna, shame the steam room was broken though :( take a lock as they have those doors u put a padlock on for your stuff, and all the swimming pools in dublin you have to wear swimming hats so if your taking your swimming stuff then buy a nice hat off eBay! you can buy them there but they are not the best looking things! We were upset that the trams were on strike easter sun and easter mon and all buses were packed out we ended up getting taxi in the centre as we need to drop our cases off for the day at a bag storage. and on Good Friday you cannot drink anywhere but your hotel. ,, so don't book to go good friday because you wont get a drink in the centre of dublin anywhere. All in all fab stay, hotel friendly, breakfasts were always good, staff nice, 203 room don't recommend!

    « Dublin Break »

    A short break accidentally booked over the Easter weekend without realising! The Hotel is situated outside the centre but the excellent LUAS tram system makes it an easy hop into the centre with transport available at no delay (every 10 minutes or less; buses also as an alternative.) The Hotel is, for a chain, of grand modern build, well maintained and clean. Our en-suite double room was clean and well equipped. The bathroom - usually a good indicator - was lovely with no suspect, missing or dodgy sealant as one often finds in poorly maintained hotels. 'Some' ventilation noise during the night, but I AM being picky. It's fair to say that we both slept very well and relaxed. Room temperature was also well controlled and ideal. Well heated but not the too hot and clammy often found in some places. On arrival we were offered the 'arrival special deal' of full breakfast for ten euro. Taken after this it would be fourteen. We decided to take this and were pleased at our choice. A good choice of food was on offer and we were 'stuffed' every morning with an ample plate and cereal, toast, juices...the lot. We ended up eating int he hotel on three of our four nights there and again, food was excellent, ample and well priced. Staff we encountered appeared to be a 50/50 mix of Irish and Europeans. All were exceptionally helpful and caring, despite being rushed off their feet (we had also hit a centenary celebration of the 1916 Dublin Uprising, so Dublin was heaving). My wife is a coeliac so dietry requirements are an issue, but they handled this wonderfully. Adjoining the hotel are the very nice pool, sauna, gorgeous bath-hot jacuzzi and other facilities - free for residents. A swim hat must be worn by all - they sell them for a couple of euros if you don't have one. Take minimum valuables in unless you take your own lock for the locker! We would fully recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Dublin. If we return to this wonderful city, we would not hesitate to rebook.

    The hotel is well run and more than sufficient for any kind of trip, although the room we where in would only suit a one or two night stay.as it was quite small with no window view and quite drafty other than that quite an enjoyable short stay and would stay there again.

    « Nice hotel »

    Nice hotel and certainly great for the money. Convenient for the LUAS or the No 13 bus if the LUAS drivers are on strike! Very helpful staff. Great breakfast. It's about 25 mins from the city centre by bus or LUAS - easy commute.

    « Just above average »

    I chose this hotel because I often stay at the best western chain whilst away on business. The welcome was ok, we were interrupted during check in by a cheeky youth wanting to use the hotel toilets, the receptionist had a very brief conversation with the boy and asked him to leave, he ignored her and used the toilet. The room was fine , spacious warm and clean, the shower was ok and there were ample towels, soaps and shampoos etc. The bar area was quire large, here you can also eat and there is a waitress service throughout the night and it has to be said 90% of the waitresses were very good, note to management, the two young sisters that wait in here were excellent. The bar staff are also good, there is 1 guy that lets the team down due to his arrogance, I will not state his name as I would be judged incorrectly if I did. The food i ordered was ok, my partners food wasn't, she ordered a chicken wrap dish, which due to the soggy filling fell apart as she attempted to pick it up to eat it, the sauce was runny and poured out if the bottom quite rapidly. One thing that I feel I must include, this may have a connection to the young lad I mentioned at reception, in the areas outside the hotel, there was a small gang of intimidating youths, they were not doing anything ,but hung around all the time and put a sour twist on things, I noticed also that over the main road in the McDonald's restaurant there was older gangs of men. I got the feeling there may be a travellers camp near by, and they were from there, the same people were drinking in the hotel bar one night as well. The location of the hotel is quite away from the centre, 15 euro in a taxi, or you can get the very convenient tram which takes around 15 minutes to get to the city centre. So to recap, if I went to Dublin again, I think I may try another hotel, don't get me wrong this hotel is a nice place, the management just need to resolve a few easy to resolve issues that may put people off.

    Me and my partner visited here for the weekend , the restaurant staff, Elizabeth I reported my meal to her and she didn't tell the manager, needless to say didn't eat in the restaurant again, I did tell the receptionist who was very apologetic and offered me a free drink the next night, the bar staff are very hardworking and care about their customers especially Shannon and Cecil's , they are nice people and deserve recognition , the rooms are warm and comfy , it's about 20 minutes on the tram to city , there were travellers next door but the receptionist was on them getting them moved out, I didn't catch her name but if her manager looks on here she's very hard working, we arrived good Friday at 5ish and she was working blonde hair and glasses . All in all great stay ,

    « Noisy night »

    We stayed here on the 16th March in a family room for 1 night... I'm writing this review due to the fact the management refuse to admit there is a problem with the noise I encountered. We were in room 138 which must be above the kitchen area because there was a loud fan type noise until 1030pm which then started again at 0640 20 mins before breakfast.. obviously not good when young kids are trying to sleep. Every other part of the stay was great from the staff to food and the leisure centre. My main issue is when I spoke to the staff the next morning about the noise it was as if I was lying. I then emailed the manager who again refused to admit there was a noise issue in the room. (If there wasn't a noise id have nothing to complain about) I also read other reviews about noise issues. Sadly the customer service has made my mind up that I wouldn't return to this hotel in the future...

    Just returned from a few days in Dublin, stayed two nights at the Sheldon park. Good things about this hotel, it is clean and welcoming, the breakfast was lovely range of cereals and breads, fruit, hams, chesses etc and full Irish breakfast which was served to you and was hot and tasty. Room number 237 was on the small side, couldn't stand up in places, bathroom; large and clean with full size bath but terrible spurty shower and damp smell. Room had ironing board and iron and the usual tea/ coffee making facilities. The room was so hot and noisy in the morning with an extractor fan we think. Luckily this didn't run through the night but woke us up. We did not use the pool or bar area so cannot comment on those facilities Location, this hotel is a 20 minute tram ride away from city centre. Although the trams are very frequent and cost 5 euros for a return fayre it does add up if you want to return back to get changed then go back to the centre for a night out. The tram stop is a 5 minute walk away from the hotel. For the price we paid this hotel was good value and was fine for a couple of days, but if you want to be in the city centre and not have the inconvenience of travelling to and fro on trams this is not the place for you.

    Stayed here for one night during a recent trip to Dublin. Reception staff were very pleasant and polite. Room was excellent. Bedroom and bathroom were spotless. Lovely comfortable beds. Nice size bathroom with bath/shower with plenty of clean towels. Luas is a only minute walk away which brings you straight into the city centre for only €2.70 and only takes about 25 mins.

    We stayed in this lovely hotel for 3 nights b&b, staff couldn't do enough to help us. Breakfast was lovely and the room looked to be newly decorated and they were very clean. The only slight down side to this hotel is the location, it's 13 stops (20 mins) on the 'Luas' (tram) and costs €5 return to the city, saying this the nearest tram stop is only a 2 minute walk from the hotel but we were advised by many people not to use the Luas late at night which may just have been as we were two female travelling alone, and taxis varied from €15-€20 from the city to the hotel.

    Just returned from a 2 night break at the Sheldon Park Hotel March 7-9th, what a great place at the budget end of the market,it certainly was not budget service or accommodation. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good. OK the hotel is a little dated but the beds were very comfortable, and the room were warm and clean. A hint for those of you flying in to Dublin airport, when you arrive take the left exit door at arrivals, walk through to bus area 14 and catch either the N7 service or the Dundrum Dublin Coach to the Red Cow Luas for €5 each. From Red Cow catch the tram one stop to Kylemore. On your left you will see a McDonald's head in that direction and the Best Western Hotel will be about a further 2 minutes on the left hand side. Getting into Dublin on the tram is so easy as they run as close as 4 minutes apart at rush hour and run till midnight. If you are going I would highly recommend the Guinness tour, it is well worth the €20 entrance fee, especially as they keep giving you the black stuff to taste included in the price..

    I stayed here on the 5th March for two nights. The first night we ended up staying in the bar, had a meal and listened to the live band. We had a great night, drinks flowing and even managed a dance! The bedroom was very well presented, clean and warm. I slept well the first night we no problems but the second night was a little more noisy with the band still playing down stairs. By the time we went to bed it was 11pm. We were located in a room on the 1st floor, right above the bar. Bathroom was clean, the shower was ok and clean towels. I would stay here again but ask for a room higher up. Easy to get to from the Luas tram service. This takes you right into town centre and a reasonable price. The reception staff were lovely and very helpful. Bar staff and waitresses also lovely and pleasant when tending to our table. Thank you Sheldon Park x

    Although outside the city it's really easy to find. We bought a LEAP ticket from the bus information desk at the airport entrance. We got the 747 bus from the airport to Heuston ( you get a free tour of the sights) where we changed to the LUAS red line to Kylemore which is the stop only 300yds from the hotel. This was so easy & direct. The Hotel was really excellent, starting with the great welcome we got from Elaine on reception who gave us loads of advice on where to visit. We were able to get into our room early which was a great help. The room was clean & functional. We had the breakfast which we booked at reception on arrival for 10 euros a day. This was excellent value. We had several meals in the restaurant which were great. I recommend the 3 course set menu at 20 euro-fantastic value. The staff were great, especially Greg , who was really efficient & helpful. The leisure pool was next door,however, you must wear a swimming cap & take your own towel, so be warned.

The location of hotel is quite far from the main areas of Dublin, however the tram runs directly into the centre. If you don't mind not being central, this hotel is very good value for money.

    Well we got the early flight out from Birmingham, we actually got to the hotel from airport at 11am hoping to just drop the luggage off and get on a day out into Dublin, but to our great surprise they ley us check in and have a quick freshen up before going into town, very friendly staff indeed, it is 15 mins out of town but the tram stop on the Luas line is a two min walk from Kylemore stop on the line.

    « Quite impressed »

    My friend booked this hotel for a weekend break, she is one for getting "a deal" Initially I thought to myself this is bound to be not great, but...on arrival it looks decent. The receptionists, bar staff, leisure staff, breakfast team were exceptionally nice. The room was clean, the sink had a big crack down it and the shower showed signs of wear. It's not 4* but for a short break it's good enough. We went to the swimming pool/steam room/sauna, again shows signs of age, Again another deal purchased by my friend, a massage & facial. The receptionist/therapist explained she was on her own, so one of us waited whilst the other had their hour of pampering. I did enjoy it and felt relaxed afterwards. In terms of transport links it's a 6 min walk from the tram station to the hotel, it's about 20 min into Temple Bar/centre of town. If you happy with the trek to and from Dublin city and you get a deal then this is certainly worth it, Should mention the full breakfast was not great, opt for bacon & eggs (bacon is served v crispy on the edge of burnt) ! On the whole worth the bargain price.

    « Nice hotel, nice staff :) »

    We stayed here for 2 nights as a couple which I had booked for my partner for a Christmas gift, the hotel was clean and nice and similar to other best Weston hotels we have stayed in before, the hotel although far from the centre it is right next to the Luas tram line which takes about 22mins into the centre of Dublin. So if you don't mind a bit of traveling then it's a perfect pick. We purchased the pass for the bus, tram and train at the airport for 19.50 euros which was a 72hour pass which we found useful and used it a lot during the day meaning we never had to get a taxi even using it to get on the airport shuttle bus to the centre of Dublin which meant we just jumped onto the tram and saved us paying extra for taxis , the trams run until about 12.30 am on week days and Sunday's about 11.30 which meant we could still go for a drink! We arrived early as our flight was an early one but couldn't check in as they had just had a busy weekend but we were able to freshen up and leave our bags at the reception and advised to come back after 2 to check in. The cleaners did a good job of replacing our towels and keeping the room clean throughout our stay and a lady at the reception was helpful on advising us to visit the fishing village of Howth which we did on our last day! Brilliant stay in Dublin, nice clean hotel although as said above quite far away from the centre but if you don't mind a short tram ride then it's good for your money! There is also a McDonald's and a breakfast place across the road which is good for any fast food! Room is equipped with hairdryer, shower caps , shower gel and shampoo , tea and coffee facilities , TV and iron! Would recommend staying here for anyone considering going to Dublin!!

    « Stunning hotel »

    We stayed here for the ireland/wales 6 nations match in February for 3 nights. A lovely clean hotel with lovely character and features. Although we ventured into the city(which was 100yards to the tram) and had a lovely time, we always ended up back in the hotel for a couple of Guinness'. Such a welcoming environment, with good live music and lovely staff who we grew fond of (Martin). Food was out of this world, the steak on the stone is a must try!! As for breakfast, lots of choice, all fresh and excellent service. Onto the pool/spa area, lovely and clean, just what I needed to relax after a heavy weekend. Can't fault this hotel and would recommend to anyone looking for a break to Dublin to come here. Awesome, we'll be back.

    « Not the same as other Best Westerns »

    Me and my partner stayed here for his birthday, I mentioned this and other best westerns have done things for occasions but not here. Prior to stay hotel had send route from airport via Luas line. On arrival the trams were on strike so had to walk to find a taxi which I feel I should have been pre warned about. Room was basic, bed comfy and bathroom fine. Breakfast isn't a buffer like usual hotels have to order a cooked one and for my partner who eats a lot of protein he was restricted and we probably wouldn't have booked it if we had known. On our 2nd night we got back from all day travels to our door not lock from housekeeping and a room key missing which was obviously concerning and reception didn't seem bothered. The reception staff weren't very helpful, told us the wrong bus to get and said we couldn't use the spa after checkout even though I had emailed prior and had this ok'd as had a late departure luckily I kept the email. Won't be returning.

    Wow what an elegant entrance for your 1st thing to see. Nothing changed through the hotel very well looked after everything very elegant. Rooms good size with everything you could want in a hotel room, tea/coffee things, hairdryer, iron + ironing board. If you want view from your hotel then maybe this isn't it cos all you will see are industrial buildings + garages, for us not a problem I didn't go for the view out of the window, would much rather the inside 5* . Plenty of car parking facilities + very easy 2 find if driving from airport or port. For your visit into the city Park up + use the tram, 2 min walk from hotel and only €4.80 return. Food here is exellent, plenty of choice at breakfast + evening meals are very tasty, reasonable + large portions. I would recommend this hotel 2 Any1 wanting to visit Dublin .

    « Was an OK stay »

    Me and my Boyfriend stayed here for valentines weekend. The hotel is in a really quiet area and it was lovely to have silence when walking in the hotel, it was really relaxing. The rooms were okay, the bed was comfy, but there was a really thin duvet but there was a blanket available. The room when we walked in stunk of smoke we stayed in room 219, we found out on the day we were checking out that it did turn out to be. a smokers room which me and my boyfriend didn't like as the both of us aren't smokers. The shower was okay it done the job, really low pressure and took ages to warm up. The fixed shampoo, and shower gel on the wall weren't really the best as ours didn't work, but would advise to buy your own over the 'Dealz' over there is the equivalent to our poundland, so I just bought some from there for just 1.49euro. We had a standard double room and the thing we can fault on are ceilings because it was on the top floor and corner room the room isn't ideal for someone who is tall my boyfriend is 5foot 8 and even he struggled, the plimps are really low do it is very easy to hit your head so you had to duck when walking around the bed. The hotel is located out of the city centre and around a 5 minute walk from a McDonald's and the luas (red tram line) which takes you straight into the city centre for really cheap, but if wanting to travel by taxi it will cost between €16-20 which is expensive if travelling in and out of the city centre. We loved it stay and it was alright for the time we spent but would advise staying more into the city centre as it will save money in the long run due to having to pay out for taxis etc. Hope this helps

    I stayed there recently with my sister. It was her first time and like me she enjoyed her stay. I have stayed there many times and always enjoyed it. The hotel is small old world very clean and the staff are excellent. The bar food is excellant and very reasonable and Greg the waiter is great craic. The breakfast is served up to at your table my favourite is the poached eggs and bagel with bacon. I don't use the leisure centre but my husband does and his only crib are the dressing rooms which are basic and no shampoo or shower gel provided. The Luas is just down the road taking you into the centre of Dublin.

    « A good hotel on the 'down town' side of Dublin »

    We visited this hotel for a two night stay with our 9year old daughter. First impressions were very good. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Luas station (tram) and from there you can get into Dublin City Centre for about 4 euro and about a 20 min trip away. Very easy and very convenient. The hotel is lovely, had a great feature staircase and is clean throughout. The staff were pleasant throughout. The room was a good size. We had a triple and we were all happy with the good quality, comfortable beds. The shower wasn't too great, low pressure and the soup dispenser fixed to the wall with low quality soap was a let down. The towels were a little too small but this is perhaps just being picky. We did eat in the hotel bar and the steak is highly recommended :-) The only gripe from me would be that on both mornings from arid 7.30am there was a lot of noise from below our room. We had room 127 which is above the area of the hotel where the staff congregate, accept deliveries for the kitchen and the bar etc. And the commercial bins were stored there. There was a lot of noise on both days from vehicles coming and going and staff making a noise. Apart from this we really enjoyed our stay and would stay at the Sheldon again when in Dublin - although I would perhaps asks for a different room on the other side of the hotel.

    Nice place but about 6 miles outside centre. Check in was smooth and the room was good. Bar is nice and big if you want to just stay in and have a few drinks. Stayed for two nights and bus stop is just outside about two mins walk (13 bus number) into centre. Have the right change tho as they don't accept notes.

    « Average hotel with poor touches »

    Visited the hotel for a late weekend break, the location is fairly close to the Kylemore Luis station which doesn't take long to get into Dublin city centre. The hotel itself is clean with friendly staff, however everything else is mediocre even for the price. The room just fits a double bed and a bedside table either side. The biggest problem in the room is the plugs. There is one double socket accessible in the room which is no where near anything else, even a table. To make a cup of tea you either have to move the table and block the way out of the room or put the kettle on the floor. The room also includes an iron attached to an ironing board with no way to plug in at all. The shower is ok, not much pressure and the hotel has opted for fixed shower gel / shampoo dispensers. You would be better off buying some really cheap shampoo from elsewhere given the quality of the one they provide (travelling by plane we couldn't really bring any with us). The bed comes with an extremely thin duvet, though a blanket is also provided in the room. We had dinner in the attached restaurant one evening which again wasn't great. My medium steak was served well done, and the vegetarian curry was more a stir fry with curry sauce, disappointing. There are probably better hotels out there and we won't be returning. But the hotel may suit some who are looking for a reasonably priced hotel just out of the city.

    « Good but not for us »

    Good clean rooms. Friendly staff. Very professional. Easy route into town via buses or Luas. Just a few little things that would stop us from returning- Towels- very small for baths towels plus we had to use them when we used the pool. Think we'd take our own next time. Shower gel/shampoo- I don't mind units that are attached to the wall but this isn't great when we need some after swimming and there isn't any in the lesuire centre. Lockers in the lesuire centre- I don't mind bringing my own padlock but tell us we need one. Food- we opted out of breakfast but did have dinner in the bar one night. I'd quite like to swap vegetable curry recipes as none of mine contain a mix of stir fry veg. Not inedible but odd. Our room was at the start of the corridor so we had a fair bit of passing noise. Decent place to rest our heads but we won't be back.

    « Sheldon Park comes through. »

    I booked the hotel for its proximity to the SBG Ireland gym, where I'd spend most of my time during the week. I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance, cleanliness and condition of the hotel, as well as by the attentiveness and professionalism of the staff. These hotel people work hard, at all hours. The location is about a 30-minute tram ride from downtown Dublin, in a residential, industrial, suburban location. There's not much within walking distance from the hotel, though the SBG gym is only a ten minute walk away. But the Luas Red Line station is just about an 8 minute walk away, so access to public transport is close. This hotel is not a luxury resort, though its gym is quite good and so are the breakfasts, and I would qualify it as a very good value.

    Stayed here for a night in January. Hotel was nice. Room was small but clean. Breakfast was very good. Used the pool (have to buy a swim hat for 2euros) jacuzzi, steam room etc, which was lovely and not too busy. A little way out of the centre of Dublin but close to Luas line, which takes you directly into city. Great for price but would probably stay closer to centre if we visited again.

    Fantastic first trip to Dublin! Even though the hotel was located out of the city centre it was ideally situated just a two minute walk from the Luas ( tram line) which took you straight to the city. Elaine the hotel receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful even before we arrived. She arranged early check in due to our time of arrival. She was a friendly face as we checked in remembering us from the previous phone conversations. From the time we arrived to our departure Elaine gave helpful tips on places to visit, maps and arranged reliable return transport to the airport. We would recommend this hotel for couples wanting to experience the sights and sounds of Dublin.

    « Could not be happier! »

    What a great time tripl! We flew from Scotland with Ryanair and were picked up at the airport by a wonderful Taxi man (didn't get his name) and dropped off at our hotel within 20 minutes. He arranged a time to meet with us to pick us up when the trip was over and then we paid him 70 euros for the return taxi drive. (You pay the full sum of your return taxi drive when you get dropped off.) We arrived at the hotel for 10:30 am and went into the hotel with the intentions to drop off our bags (which you can do) before being asked if we would like to check in (four and a half hours early!!!) Wonderful. Our room was clean, and beautifully presented and included a tea and coffee area. You can order room service (which we did multiple times as it's only an extra four euros service charged) food was delivered fast, piping hot and gorgeous! We used the leisure facilities which were clean and wonderful again. You have to wear swim caps but you can buy them for 2 euros and offered towels to use; when we threw our swimcaps away (thought you had to put them in the wash with the towels) they kept hold of them and returned them to us later on. Wonderful! We treated ourselves to a massage with Sheldon beauty. Absolutely amazing could not recommend them enough! Our breakfast was wonderful. Full Irish (complimentary each morning) waited on and every member of staff we met were warm and welcoming. The only unfortunate thing to happen was a fire alarm going off waking us up at midnight but it was not the hotels fault and we made light of the situation by popping down to the bar and buying a couple of pints of guiness . It's now check out time and we were given a later check out (1pm instead of 12pm) so we could still use the leisure facilities before we leave (3:30pm) and now we are sitting in the bar and watching the football relaxed and happy from such an amazing trip. Thank you to everyone involved!! Kelsie and Daniel

    « Birthday break to Dublin »

    Arrived Sun morning, slight concern as our booking couldn't be found. Went and had breakfast (excellent enormous portions to set you up for the day) and on return were upgraded to a larger room which was great. Lovely entrance with a grand sweeping staircase beautifully decorated for Xmas. Rooms were excellent, clean and spacious with bath which we appreciated after a long day sightseeing. The restaurant and bar were both good and one night we had the steak on hot stones which is highly recommended. The breakfasts were substantial and extremely good value. Although the hotel is a bit off the beaten track (about a 45 euro ride from the airport) it is only a short walk to an excellent tram system which will whisk you into the centre of Dublin relatively inexpensively. There are alternative ways to get there from the airport if you do your research. A really nice hotel with warm friendly people, lots of useful information for places to go and things to do. Happy to recommend it.

    My wife and I have just returned from an overnight stay in the Sheldon Park. The main door opens up onto a magnificent foyer with an amazing staircase leading up to the upper floors. This would be magic for taking photos of a bridal party. Service was quick and efficient. Everything was spotless.There is a leisure complex attached to the hotel which is free to use if you are an hotel guest.Breakfast was lovely and served with a smile. Absolutely no complaints on that score. Unfortunately there was a negative and it was room 202. It had all you would expect in the room itself but the en-suite was a let-down. There is a bath but no showering facility. The en-suite was cold as there was no radiator in it and there is a noticeable difference in the temperature in the main room and the en-suite especially as it was January when we stayed. The walls do not mask the noise from the neighbouring rooms and we heard a domestic disagreement at 12:30 in the room next door which woke my wife and i up. We had fallen off to sleep quite quickly as the bed was very comfortable but the row was disturbing because of how loud it was. I appreciate you cannot pick your next door travellers and sometimes they are they will make noise but this was shockingly loud. Taking unfortunate occurance into account I would, most definitely, go back to Sheldon Park but not room 202.

    « Good but not without fault. »

    I like this hotel and have visited on more than one occasion. The first thing to say is that it is not near the city, so don't book a room if you want to be centrally located. It is however conveniently located for the M50 and roads to the west especially. The ladies on reception are very nice and attentive. The rooms fairly large, although the bathroom layout leaves a little to be desired, following the plumbing rather than good sense. Speaking of the plumbing, waste water from other rooms can be heard very clearly travelling through the pipes, so I would advise shutting the bathroom door at night! The Sheldon Park has a very nice large gym and pool, for me, these facilities are a big draw. On my last visit (Jan 16) was slightly disappointed with the food in the restaurant. I had booked a dinner B&B rate knowing full well that I had no intention of dining out. If you are on this rate you get a smaller menu choice than other dinners and I am afraid the quality of the food is a little disappointing. Processed meat is a plenty and the same can be said at breakfast. A few changes with the menu or dining options and this hotel will be a real cracker in my book.

    « Disappointing at best »

    Me and my boyfriend had purchased a weekend break in Dublin for over the Christmas period. Due to the fact we had purchased it on wowcher at a fairly decent price we had paid a supplement in order to upgrade to the best western hotel instead of a cheaper alternative in the city centre. Our flight had been delayed so we arrived at the hotel around 1am, when checking in, the receptionist was very rude towards us and asked for a card in order to have our details on record, he didn't explain what this was for until he asked and he answered very bluntly it was for security reasons, I suspect his attitude towards us was due to our age as we are teenagers, which I found very discriminative. Rude welcoming aside, the hotel lobby is absolutely beautiful and our room was decent size and had all required appliances, iron, television, shower etc. The second night, after a long walk around Dublin centre, we retired to our room and were not able to sleep as our room was directly above the bar area in which there was lie entertainment on, a volume in which exceeded us watching the television! After waiting till 11pm and still no sign of the entertainment dying down, we went to ask at reception as to when we would be able to get to sleep, the receptionist was helpful in finding out was time the music would stop but unfortunately was not until 2am, she then helped us to change rooms to one further down the corridor and also offered to let us go to the room beforehand to see if we could hear the music from there, we couldn't so she apologised for the inconvenience and changed our keys over and we changed rooms, and finally got a good nights sleep! (Additionally, after emailing the hotel our complaint at the end of our stay, the manager said we should have been notified at check in that our room could well be victim to noise from the bar, in which we were not informed) The next morning, we were awoke at 7.30am by builders directly outside our window, so close we could hear them speaking (picture attached), after getting up and going for breakfast, returning to our room, the noise was still horrendously loud. We informed reception about the inconvenience in which the receptionist told us it was an emergency leak that needed seeing to, so when my boyfriend asked her if it was a one time thing and wouldn't happen again she responded with 'oh god no' so we went on our travels. The next morning, however, there persisted to be building work at around 7.30am yet again, this was our day of check out so we left it and left the hotel disappointed with our expectation, especially after paying extra for a so called 'more luxurious' experience. After emailing the hotel our complaint, we were then informed that the building work was in fact planned and was an extension to which I remember slightly as the executive room? We had utterly been lied to by the receptionist on the first morning of being awoke by building work, which is absolutely horrendous. So after exchanging a few emails with the manager and explaining our inconvenience of having to change rooms and being woke up at ridiculous hours 2 out of the 3 mornings, we were offered at refund of one night, an amount of €50 and were told there was no other way of receiving anymore money. We were additionally offered an upgrade if we return, but after such an awful experience and customer service we will not return. I would like to point out that the breakfast was lovely and there was a lot of options, which is one of the only reasons that we have given a two star rating and not one.

    Booked here because of the Family Room package offer of B&B and evening meal, swimming pool and location (close to Luas Red Line) First impression: Clean, bigger than expected. Very pleased with a decent family room with comfortable beds, heating we could control, and excellent wifi. Bit of confusion over what was included in Dinner offer for kids. When we explained our girls weren't into the offerings on the kids menu, they accommodated us and let them choose an adult meal to share which suited us fine. We booked the offer for 2 nights so had a good sampling of the dinners and breakfasts on offer. Plain and pleasant fare. Only disaster was the raw French toast ??. Staff were helpful and attentive. Would use again if there was a good offer on as a base for touring or shopping in Dublin.

    its not closed to the center of dublin, it look sad and old. OH check in time is 3pm. I set there in the labby for a hour before they took me in. I am not sure why they ignored me. They took people in front of us. I recommend getting a hotel close to the airport like Hilton. They have a shatle. Then from there you have a bus that will take you the center of the down. This is will save you $100 cab ride.

    « Ideal hotel with great location »

    I stayed here for two nights. I selected this hotel because it wasn't expensive and even though it's not in the city centre - it had a Luas line just outside the door, which made getting into and out of the city very easy. We enjoyed our stay. The bedrooms are nice and spacious and the bathrooms lovely decorated. The breakfast was great too. Full irish was delicious and lots of other food to choose from. Scones, bread, cold meats, cheese, yoghurts and of course pastries. We dined here one night and again the food was yummy. Good size meals. Great service. The staff were all very accommodating and attentive when you needed them. The only small ''issues'' was that the tv in our room was a bit fuzzy - some channels couldn't pick up on a signal and the shower could of been hotter. But otherwise it was fine. A fantastic hotel in a very good location (probably has the advantage over a lot of other hotels which are not city centre based because of the Luas stop) - I will absolutely consider returning to this hotel again.

    « Excellent service & value for money »

    We booked 3 nights @ 80 euros per night in an executive room. It's 5 minutes from the LUAS tram station at Kylemore (Red Line) with a tram into the city (2o minutes duration) every 5 minutes @ 2.70 euros single. The breakfast for 10 euros per person is excellent - huge portions and a vast choice. The food in the bar is excellent and the service 1st class. We would definitely stay again when visiting Dublin. When our flight was delayed by 2 days they even managed to sort out a room for us even though the hotel was full - many thanks for an enjoyable 5 days. And Antonia lent us her own umbrella so we didn't get wet walking to the tram.

    « Loved it! »

    My friend and I were victims of Desmond and ended panicking around trying to find a hotel after all flights to the UK were cancelled on Sat 5th Dec. We are so glad we managed to get into the Sheldon Park (incredibly hard to find a room anywhere that night!) and felt unbelievably lucky that we found a room in such a great hotel for the price. Valerie was wonderful and made us feel very welcome after our 'ordeal', can't praise her enough. We had a twin room on the second floor which was perfect - very clean, warm, spacious and had plenty of tea and coffee! We ate in the hotel for breakfast and dinner and all meals were excellent. My friend and I are both gluten free and this was no problem at all when we mentioned it at breakfast which was tailored accordingly. The added bonus for us was the entertainment in the bar in both nights which was fantastic, and of course the spa. We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again, enjoyed every minute and want to say a huge thank you to all the staff who were so helpful, welcoming and accommodating. In short we loved our few days at the Sheldon Park!

    OK just to be clear I have not stayed in the Hotel but have been for lunch on several occasions. Hot lunch ie Turkey and Ham or Salmon etc runs at about €11.00 / €12.00 food is good and the service is very good. The staff seem to be very experienced and the same staff are there today that where there 2 years ago so that's always a good sign. So would I recommend the lace for lunch YES if you are happy with a calvery you will like this place

    The Hotel was very clean and inviting. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a good size for three adults and very warm. The bar had entertainment on on Saturday night which was an added bonus for us. The Hotel is situated very close to the luis train for easy access to Dublin city centre, Will definately be going back. well worth the money.

    « Cheap place for Dublin citytrip »

    We stayed here for four nights while visiting Dublin for the first time. While the hotel isn't that close to city center, it's very well connected. The Luas stop is just a four minute walk away. With the Luas you'll be in city center in roughly 15 minutes. The best part about the hotel was the price. For a very cheap rate you get a very nice and clean room + there's a leisure center you can use for free near the hotel. The only thing that was quite expensive was the breakfast, but there's a diner and a McDonalds across the street.

    « Not very child friendly »

    Stay here for 2 nights,in our group there was 5 adults a 7 year old and a 1 year old. The hotel was clean and our room was quite but I felt that the receptionist could not stand any noise from children as my daughter was told to stop running on which she was not running wild as i would not allow that but I felt it would have been more appropriate if I was asked to stop my child running! Then the following morning I heard another family being asked to settle their children down from making noise at reception area as people where still sleeping in their rooms and this was now 9.15 ! Though the live band music plays till late which is way louder than 2 very young children

We would be happy to recommend the Sheldon to anyone wanting to stay in Dublin, it's not a 5 star hotel but gets a 5 star rating trip advisor rating from us.

    « Very noisy stay! Builders outside our room?! »

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights - initially reading the reviews, I felt slightly nervous about the stay as they were mixed. Everything was okay the 1st night, we had builders outside our room but they didn't start until half 8 and we were up by that time so it wasn't a problem. However the 2nd night was awful! In the morning, the builders started at 6am! I don't understand how they could see what they were doing as it's obviously still dark with the winter nights. I was absolutely appalled and really upset as this is not what we had paid for and was a very negative end to our holiday! By 9am there was an incredible banging noise and sounded like they were knocking the wall through next door. When we complained to reception, the lady said they were doing repairs to a room that had flooded next door... But why give us that room then?! She apologised and said there had been other complaints about the noise, however this is not good enough. On the other hand, the breakfast was lovely and staff were generally nice. But because of our negative experience I would not recommend this hotel.

    « Friendly comfortable hotel »

    We stayed here for three nights and found it very comfortable, clean and the staff were very friendly. It was a little way out from Dublin centre but very easy to get to the tram stop which was a short walk from the hotel. We got an Express bus from the airport to Dublin Centre and then caught the tram (Luas) from there. In all it probably took us about an hour. We managed to check in a little early without any problem. The breakfasts were very good and there was a good selection of fruit, cereals, cheeses, ham etc. as well as a cooked breakfast. We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening as we were always in Dublin centre until quite late so can't comment but the menu looked very good. Our room was a twin and there was plenty of storage space. I would not hesitate to visit this hotel again.

    Really enjoyed our stay, was clean and comfortable. We paid €10 a day for breakfast which was plenty buffet style and hot Irish breakfast (big servings) well worth it. The staff were lovely so friendly and helpful Paula on reception was very helpful and so nice. The reason I didn't give it five was the location shame the area is so industrial, saying that the Luas tram takes you right into town €4. 90 return, you can get saver day tickets. Can't comment on bus we got tram or taxis. Taxi from airport to hotel was €38 lovely Irish drivers told us nice places to go, lovely friendly people so helpful.

    « Not too shabby »

    Large traditional hotel with plenty of free parking, and a reasonably priced bar and restaurant, conveniently located near the Kylemore Laus stop. Room 225 OK sized, but mind your head! Bathroom large, especially by Irish hotel standards. Breakfast very good (cooked to order) but be sure to check if your room rate is inclusive of breakfast or not. We booked on Hotels.ie, said breakfast was included, but it was definitely not! This was a concern I saw from another traveller, and I rang the hotel to be sure. That being said, you could book breakfast at check in for €10 each, which you could not beat at the local cafe for the same spread. Front desk staff very polite and helpful, restaurant service a tad slow on one night, and fine the next. Try the Steak on a Stone, it was delicious!

Rooms where super clean and relaxing, the stairway in front of you when you walk in is beautiful and the food is lovely, defiantly recommend the chili prawns "lovely". We made full use of the leisure facility's too "swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room" which I could not believe was in with the price .. was lovely! it was all really clean! but we had to purchase swimming caps 2 Euro's. There is not one bad thing I can say about the hotel! even its location is brill, right next to the tram into Dublin town centre(15min tram ride) and its so easy to use.

    « Fabulous visit to Sheldon Park Hotel »

    My daughter booked a package for us to Dublin and we stayed in the Sheldon Park Hotel and we had a fabulous time. We had a suite with a bed with wonderful drapes. The room had a lounge area and a nice size bathroom with jacuzzi bath. It was November and very cold in Dublin but the room was lovely and warm. We had the full Irish breakfast for €10 and it was excellent quality as was dinner in the evening. There is an impressive staircase as you enter the hotel and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only negative is the fact that the hotel is a little out of the way however there is a tram line at the end of the road and for €8 you can ride on it all day. All in all we had a fab stay at the Sheldon and came back home relaxed with lovely memories.

    We stayed 1 night in this hotel at beginning of October. We had a fantastic time. Staff and food excellent. Only problem was we had an inside room with no outside window. I have never stayed in a room like that before. Because they were fully booked they could not give us another room but gave us a fan which helped as my husband has asthma and was having difficulties breathing and couldn't open a window for air. But when we go again we now know not to take an inside room. A lovely hotel otherwise

    Nice enough hotel. Decor is very dated in parts of the hotel. Stayed on a room only basis so can't comment on the food. Reception staff helpful and friendly. Room was comfortable and warm. Served its purpose. Downside was that there was no hot water for a shower, less that lukewarm which was very disappointing. Free onsite parking. 5 min walk from Kylemore tram stop. Right across the road is a garage and shop.

    « A Disaster..... »

    I booked this hotel for three adults via hotels.com, and had an e-mail stating that breakfast was included in the price of €89.11 for one night, to be paid at the Sheldon Park Hotel, which was, on the surface of it, a reasonable deal. I was attending a show in the 3 arena with family and the hotel is convenient to the Red Line Luas tram which runs direct to the 3 arena and I thought we might use it. I arranged a late check in, no problem. On arrival at 11.30pm, the receptionist/porter advised me that we had a room only reservation, which I disputed, and showed him a copy of the e-mail I received from hotels.com stating that breakfast was included. I sent him a copy of the e-mail using the excellent WiFi (the only excellent thing we found during our stay), agreed to go to the breakfast room the next morning and went to the room. The room was fine, adequate, some fixtures and fittings in need of TLC, but good beds and clean. Next morning at 9:15am on arrival at the breakfast room, we were told that we were on a room only rate, and that breakfast would cost €10 per person (reduced rate). I refused to comply with this request and we were directed to reception, where we were informed that there was a dispute between the hotel and hotels.com regarding the sale of bed and breakfast rates and that the Sheldon Park Hotel were refusing to honour any B&B bookings made through the website. I asked to speak to the manager, Valerie, who was equally adamant (and arrogant) that we would have to pay for breakfast, and I refused to. She had no satisfactory answer as to why she was refusing to honour the terms we had booked the room under. I tried to cancel my debit card payment to the hotel but my card had already been charged at 7.24am. I contacted hotels.com who suggested that I pay €30 for breakfast and that they would send me a €30 voucher to use against a future booking. I was raging at that stage, so advised them that I would only accept a full refund because I had had (unfortunately and not willingly) my card debited and that the dispute was between them and the Sheldon Park and that my family and I should not have been subjected to this nonsense. They said they would be back to me within 72 hours. The question remains, who was my contract of business with, and who is responsible for this debacle? The Sheldon Park say it is hotels.com who are wrong, and hotels.com think the Sheldon Park are at fault. At the end of the day, I was either sold something under false pretenses or someone is failing to honour their end of a contract. Either way, my advice would be to double check everything if you use a booking site or go direct to the hotel to get your deal. At least then you will know who to go after if you have a problem.

    Firstly, we had to pay before arriving, which we should not have to do. We were told we got upgraded which we clearly did not as the room was very small. Then, we had to walk outside to use the additional facilities which was cold. We had to give one euro deposit, which we later realized almost 500 euro was taken out of the account. After complaining, we got no more then an apology, after being left almost a week without the money being reimbursed.

    « Does what it says on the tin. »

    Cheap and cheerful. We stayed for two nights and were comfortable enough. There was a mishap with our breakfast; we had booked to stay through hotels.com and our deal stated that we got a free breakfast. It turned out that outside booking agents do not have the authority to give free breakfasts. All in all they couldn't give us breakfast and said that we could pay and ask the booking agent to refund us. Not the hotels fault but just for future customers to be aware of. We also hadn't paid extra for the breakfast so we didn't mind going elsewhere as we thought €13.99 per person, per day was a bit much so decided against this. The hotel has great links to the city through the Luas tram system at €6.80 for a day ticket and €2.80 for a single, which were great prices. The leisure facilities were great and free of charge. The rooms were clean and spacious, our room lacked in natural light and the lights themselves were delayed in operating. There was also no option for heating in the room and we felt a bit cold. All in all we would stay again but we would stay in a deluxe room.

    Myself and husband stayed at this hotel recently for a long weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even upgraded us to an executive room. The breakfast is excellent with wide choice of continental and hot food. The pool at the leisure centre next door was free to use and was virtually empty when I went (you do need to wear a swim cap, available there for 2 euros with you don't have one). The tram is a few minutes walk away from the hotel and takes you right into Dublin centre in less than half an hour, and is only about 4 euros return. Bedroom lovely and clean; towels changed and room cleaned daily. The hotel is based in an industrial area, and on a main road, but don't let this put you off! We were overlooking the road, but were not disturbed by the traffic noise. There is also a garage across the road that sells great sandwiches, all freshly made, to take out. Nearby you can get onto the canal for a stroll and then pick up the tram a few stops further on. In summary, this is an excellent hotel for cleanliness, great food and service, lovely staff, and links to the city centre.

    « Good Hotel for a short break - easy to get into town »

    This hotel is a way out of the centre of Dublin, but easily accessible via the Luas red tram, the Kylemore stop is close to the hotel. If you'd rather spend your precious euros on seeing Dublin rather than on airport taxis it is possible to buy a Leap pass from the Spar shop at the airport for 19 euro, valid for 72 hours.This then allows you to catch the frequent airport 747 bus into town, and at Heuston or The Point you can get change onto- the Luas red tram line, to get to the hotel. If you are doing a weekend break, this will then cover your transport around the city for the whole of your break. The hotel itself is lavishly decorated in the public areas, and our room was also pleasantly decorated. It had a double bed, ensuite shower and bathroom, and a television, kettle, iron, hairdrier all provided, as were coffee & tea sachets and shampoo and shower gel. The only incongruous aspect is its location; it looks from the outside like a big country house, and you would expect it to be surrounded by rolling parkland, instead it is surrounded by concrete and an out of town retail park. But if you are there to see the town this will not bother you. There is an attached pub and a leisure centre with a pool, but we did not use these. Very good value for the money we paid.

    This hotel was near Crumlin hospital which was why we were staying. It is a bit out of the way but that might be what some people want. Free parking which was plentiful. Food at breakfast and the evening was nice. Twin room was very cosy but clean.

    « Great for weekend visit »

    stayed last weekend in this hotel could not fault anything.location for getting into the centre of Dublin was easy as the tram is at the end of the road.the hotel is easy reached of the bypass.all the staff from check in,bar staff,resturant staff were really pleasant anytime we were there.there is an indoor swimming pool and gym which is open from early morning.we had dinner in the hotel on the Saturday night which was very good and was not overly priced they also do specials as well.after dinner there was entertainment on both nights which was pretty good for a sing song.rooms were bright and clean and the wifi worked well in the room.i would stay in this hotel if staying in Dublin again.

    « Good room and comfortable »

    Stayed here for 1 night as I was in Dublin for business, found the room comfortable and the wi-fi worked very well. The room was very reasonably priced and it came with breakfast which was an added bonus.

    « Soulless with poor food »

    Just a two day stop over on business. The hotel is very attractive, clean and tidy and in that respect a refreshing change from the big budget chains. As others have said the staff are very detached and clearly don't want to be there. They were polite but behind the fake smiles clearly they are not engaged. Not a reflection on them but the business behind them. Food in the Resturant was really poor - edible but not as good as some well known fast food establishments.

    « It's ok.... »

    Overall it wasn't a bad hotel. There wasn't too much wrong with the hotel but the staff seemed quite detached and demoralised. Check in was quite a dry clinical affair. I didn't feel welcomed. I wasn't given any of the usual info given at check in regarding breakfast timings etc. With exception of one of the male waiters in the restaurant, who was very helpful, they all have the impression they didn't want to be there. That creates a certain atmosphere. A hotel should feel like a home from home and guests should feel welcome and not like they are imposing upon staff. But, the hotel was clean and tidy and had a good leisure complex annexed to it. Well worth going to relax in the 22m pool etc. We are in the restaurant and can recommend the "steak on a stone". It was very good. Overall it was a satisfactory stay but I wasn't made feel welcome and the price was quite high. I didn't feel I got good value for money. I don't think I'd be back. 1 night was just enough.

    « Comfort And Convenience At A Good Price »

    We booked this hotel because it offered a family room at a reasonable price. Although a bit far from the centre of Dublin, the facilities made up for it. Spacious room, nice lobby and restaurant, together with a pool and gym and free parking. Quick access to the city centre by the public transit Luas is just at the end of the street.

Handy for Luas to city. Reception staff very helpful and gave lots of information. Highly receommended

    « Watch out for the hidden charge! »

    My husband and I stayed here as part of a wowcher deal for our second anniversary. We didn't get to the hotel until about half 11 at night as we had a evening flight into Dublin. Checking in at reception was probably the worst of it as the man who checked us in said he needed a credit card to charge for the two nights for "security reasons". We had to ask what was charged per night and why as this was never stated on their website or by the travel agent we went through as part of the deal. When I gave him my debit card that had a visa logo on it he said he couldn't accept that but eventually did when we stated we did not have a credit card as we were never told about this need for a charge. He only took a photocopy of it along with an ID and then said it would be 7-10 days before it would be taken off as credit card is instant. Never actually had the charge so I don't know why he said it would be. We also talked to someone who was there on the same wowcher deal and said they did the same thing with them but mentioned he didn't ask us something that they were asked and at this point I don't remember what it was. Our first night of sleep was horrible as the pillows were too big though we figured out the second night how to prop the pillows a certain way so we didn't ache the next day. It was pretty quiet though and no loud noises from anyone in the halls or in other rooms. The hotel was also close to the trams.

    We visited Ireland late September,staying at Best Western Sheldon Park in Dublin 27/09/15 to 29/09/15. Arriving late on the Sunday evening, after driving up from the very beautiful St.Mullins on the River Barrow in Carlow,we were tired and very hungry,on entering the hotel we were immediately impressed with the magnificent foyer with its marvellous central chandelier, hanging over the staircase from the top floor. We were greeted warmly by the receptionist, checked in quickly and shown to our room by the gentleman who also carried our bags. The double room was on the side of the hotel room 217, a really nice room with everything you need provided,tea,coffee,tv,hairdryer,toiletries etc.even a trouser press! After a quick change,we were off to the pub! Not too far away just down stairs opposite reception is "Minnie Mcabes" a large pub/restaurant. Excellent Guiness,we ate dinner here on two evenings and found the food very good. The staff in the bar also deserve a special mention, everyone was efficient,attentive and friendly.not only in the bar but throughout the hotel we were treated very well. It is about 20 minutes from the city centre,there is a large free car park and for those on foot there is the tram at the end of the street,just past the Macdonalds! Breakfast was plentiful ,fruit, cereal,toast etc,plus the" Full Irish" served to your table,along with pots of tea or coffee.Excellent. All in all we spent an enjoyable and comfortable stay, made even better by the staff who were all great,and we will not hesitate to return to the Sheldon Park the next time we visit Dublin.

    « Stunning »

    Absolutely stunning foyer! This was our first reaction! Had the most wonderful 2 nights. Booking over the internet, we booked a double room to find we were given two single beds. This was very quickly adjusted by staff and they were wonderful for our entire stay. Room was perfect, clean, and comfortable bed. Tea at the adjoining pub Minnie McCabes was awesome. Great meal and great staff.

    « Great Stay »

    We had booked a family room online, but when we got there, we were given room with only two beds. The staff at the desk, changed our rooms immediately without any problem at all. The staff at the hotel restaurant/bar, Minnie McCabe's, were fantastic and made us feel at home for our entire stay!

    « Pretty good! »

    Hotel fair bit from Dublin city centre. Tram stop not far away which takes about 25 minutes to city centre. Would recommend using one of the deals on transportation such as the leap pass if staying any length of time. Hotel room we had was nice and roomy. Was cleaned daily. There are no do it yourself laundry facilities and we were not impressed with the food the few times we ate there. Breakfast was not included in our room rate and was a bit pricey. There is a store across the road for snacks and just up the road there is a small restaurant that is open for breakfast and lunch with decent prices. Free wifi in the hotel which worked just about all the time we stayed.

    « Leaves a lot to be desired! »

    This will be a tale of little areas where the hotel could and should pay attention to. None are major issues on their own but put together they distracted from what should have been an enjoyable stay. The Sheldon Park Hotel certainly did not measure up to the usual standards of a Best Western Hotel. On arrival we found that the lift was not working so we had to take our cases up to our room on the second floor. The receptionist did offer to call a member of staff to carry our cases up but as we were very tired and hungry we did not feel we could wait for a member of staff to appear. I also have to add that if you do not have a vehicle of your own and are intending to visit Dublin for tourist purposes you may find this hotel too far from the centre of the city. Admittedly, one of the Luas (tram) routes does run along the bottom of the road but it costs 4.80 return to the city centre every time you use that service, however, the service is very efficient and frequent - rather enjoyable actually. As for the areas that need attention, well, these include no fan and dirty tile grout in the bathroom, a very loose electrical socket in the main room, two broken drawers in the dressing table and a snapped metal curtain tie back with jagged edges. Also in the bathroom there is a shower screen that has a bar that is attached to it and the back wall. It has been put there to ensure that the screen remains in place but the only problem is that it's well under 6 foot off the bottom of the bath and when you are 6 foot 3 inches tall that presents a bit of a problem at shower time especially with soap in your eyes! When we booked in we were given the opportunity to book breakfast in advance for 10 euros instead of nearly 14 euros. We took advantage of the offer and were having a very nice breakfast until we looked at the 'fresh' fruit on offer. When we did we found that one of the oranges was rotting away and had been for many days judging by it's decomposing state (see photo). Also the WiFi was very intermittent so if you have work to do, do not depend on the hotel's connection - I found it very, very poor. So all in all rather a disappointing stay and certainly nowhere near the usual standards of a Best Western hotel.

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Sheldon Park Hotel during our recent 17 day trip through Ireland. The bedroom was one of the most comfortable that we have ever stayed in. The hotel was beautifully decorated and the desk staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful.
