Staff were brilliant and location was good, room was comfortable with everything we needed, very clean and good breakfast and resturant served good food. No additional facilities - need a car or use bus for attractions. Busses into Dublin worked out more expensive than hiring a car, not an awful lot to do in the area apart from the beach....

We booked in for a three night stay and found the room was small but clean with a sea view. However this was a Wednesday night and got awoken by a couple having a row outside. They had come out of the nightclub and along with several others and this lasted till 4am. I would not stay there ever again.

We booked a room on expedia (also looked at their own site) and when we arrived instead of the clean modern room from the website we received an old, dirty, motel room that should be condemned. The walls were dirty, floors and chairs stained and there was mold in the shower tiles. When we inquired they said we received the...

Nice little hotel by the sea. Staff were friendly. Local Chinese restaurant delivered to the room. Fairly average hotel, but the rooms are more spacious than most hotels in Dublin. Easy to find and had a lively bar.

we recently had a small wedding lunch at the White Sands and they made the day. Everyone commented on how good the food was & how nice the staff were. The attention to detail from Tony the manager was faultless, we looked at many hotels for the occasion and are so glad we picked White Sands, nothing was too much...

Across from the beach and close to airport - our reasons for booking at this Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is convenient to have a restaurant and bar on site - basic pub food and tv's for sports. Room was clean and quite large - nothing special. For one night it was fine. Reasonably priced at...

Nice big room and clean bathroom cannot fault the room. The menu for the hotel did not appeal to us so we went to Howth for our two evening meals. It was a pity about the menu because it seems there are not many places to eat in Portmarnock and the hotel could cash on this and expand their menu....
