The rooms were beautifully appointed, clean, and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant a few times and the food was good, although a little expensive. The...

Slept well in big comfy bed. Room was really lovely. Rarely had so large room when ordered just standard. Unfortunately service at the restaurant did not impress. Large lobby with live music was ever so enjoyable.

My husband and I spent our last two days of our holiday at the Skylon. It was a beautiful hotel with the most amazing staff. From Simon the amazing bartender to the brilliantly helpful Sofie at the front desk. Thank you both so much for all your help and good advice. We would definitely recommend this hotel and revisit it...

Probably the best hotel on the northside of Dublin. Very good accomodation, brilliant staff and very convenient location. What do you really need from a hotel? You really need look no further than the Skylon.

Decent quality hotel on the north side of Dublin. About 15 mins bus or taxi to the center. Prob a bit far to walk but if you don't mind having to take the transport its a very decent hotel. Nice, old style, open plan, clean establishment with friendly staff. Car parking facilities on site.
