Situated on the seafront in Dun Laoghaire, Haddington House has panoramic views of Dublin Bay. Originally four Victorian townhouses the hotel began its life as Haddington House, a finishing school for girls, before being converted into a hotel in the 1950s. We are continuing to develop the hotel property but in keeping with the unique heritage of the building. Our fifty en suite bedrooms have flat screen multi-channel TV's, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machines, digital radios, hair dryers and filtered still and sparkling water. Our newer 'Classic' and 'Deluxe' rooms also come with an in-room safe, a mini fridge stocked with fresh milk, as well as a complimentary Irish Times. Most of the rooms in these categories also have spectacular sea views. Oliveto, the award-winning restaurant with views of the sea, serves Italian-inspired fare and is extremely popular so booking is highly recommended. There's also two unique events spaces: The Library Bar and Oak Room, a lobby bar and a buzzy garden overlooking the sea complete with a Hut Bar. The location is hard to beat with Dun Laoghaire DART station just a 5-minute walk away which provides regular rail connections to Dublin's city centre. The Aviva Stadium and the RDS can be reached after a 10-minute DART rail journey. If you're staying in the area, we have partnered up with a number of local businesses so guests can enjoy discounts on activities. The beautiful village of Dalkey is a short trip down the coast and is great for an afternoon's ramble. Directly opposite us is the historic east pier which was built especially for the arrival of Queen Victoria in 1900. Around the corner is the National Maritime Museum and the James Joyce Tower made famous by Ulysses is just a 5-minute walk away. If you fancy a dip, we'll supply you with towels for a visit to the well-known swimming spot, the 40 foot (beware of the seals!) We look forward to welcoming you to Haddington House.

I've stayed in this hotel 3/4 times now after discovering it by accident. The location is great, tucked just off the seafront in Dun Laoghaire so you can walk down some steps and straight onto the boardwalk 😊 This visit was in winter but the hotel really comes into its own in

This is a fantastic location, overlooking the harbour, great restaurant and bar area, not to mention the cute “Gin Bar”. Sit out and get served on the terrace during the summer and watch the world and the boats go by below in the harbour. There’s a real feeling of the past here

Stayed in Haddington House on a Sunday night after a day out in Dublin. The hotel overlooks the port of Dun Laoghaire and is in a very quiet location. Guest parking is available, but you need a code from reception to enter the car park. The hotel itself is subdued & relaxed.

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, we made sure that we requested one of the upgraded rooms. The room was spotlessly clean, although we had been hoping to get a room with a sea view, rather than the car park. It's a gorgeous place, very boutique with great staff. Loved

This was a last minute booking. We were tasked with taking someone with mobility issues to an appointment in Blackrock Clinic. We didn't have much time to research and many of the other accommodations in the area were either booked up or were unsuitable for people with

Hi. My wife and I are from Canada and travel very much in Canada, the USA and Europe. Have never RESERVED a reservation. Have always known the dates and have used Trip Advisor et al to book the room. You could book a weeks or so and modify when you realise the proper dates. I have booked several days months before my visit and have had to change the dates. It can be done. Your experience will be different of course with the Hotel you do business with. Make sure you research. Cheers.
