Really nice hotel very helpf...

Very clean hotel, helpful staff...


great hotel

We stayed for one night and had a communion meal for my son. The meal was lovely and hotel provided the kids with pick & mix sweets outside. We were fortunate with the weather and sat in the lovely garden by the restaurant for the evening The staff were very efficient at reception and in the restaurant. We were very satisfied with the room and what fantastic bathroom, not many hotels offer a bath and shower nowadays. The place was spotless. The only problem we encountered was one of the lifts was out of order which caused a bit of a delay every time we needed to go to our room...and that was the only issue we had! Highly recommend it :)...


Staff are very friendly and helpful

Room was lovely, had everything we needed. Only thing that let it down was the stains on the carpet. Bathroom was immaculate and bed was very comfy. Staff were always willing to help and were very friendly. Would definitely go back and would recommend....


Friendly modern hotel near Dublin Airport

This is a hotel suitable for business, events and short stays. It is new and modern. Super roomy bedrooms with excelent bathrooms and spacious showers. I enjoyed good 2 breakfasts and one evening meal. Pleasant service and good food. It is about 20 mins drive to the airport, mostly along motorways, and far enough away to avoid aircraft noise....


The Hotel is a beautiful place to stay if you are ...

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel for 3 nights and the staff and the food was first class. We had a truly wonderful time in Dublin for St. Patricks Day and our room in the hotel was really lovely. The hotel was faultless. The rooms are kept absolutely spotless and are very tastefully decorated. When we return to Dublin again in the future, we shall be staying at The Carlton Hotel, Blanchardstown without any shadow of a doubt. Magnificient hotel and i would recommend this hotel to anyone. Thank you all for a truly memorable stay and look forward to seeing you all again sometime in the future. Kind Regards Keith Hever & Patricia Stott....


Dublin City Break

Had a very enjoyable stay at the Carlton, could not fault the service or the food. Our only issue was it was just a bit too far away from the city centre. We did have a car, however unless you know the area it was a little stressful to drive. I would certainly stay there again but would do a scenic tour rather than a city break....


Made Very Welcome

Very friendly staff nothing too much trouble. Good clean rooms. Please note if you decide to use the bus outside the hotel to get in and out of Dublin you require the correct change and they do not take notes...The fare was 2 euros 65 cents for an adult....


Attentive staff in all areas

Very pleased with all aspects of our stay from initial checking in, to departure, we were thourougly looked after. The facilities were excellent and we will definetly be using this hotel again and have already began to reccomend it to family and friends...
