Just returned from a week in Ireland with this hotel as our base of operations. The hotel is about 35 minutes from Dublin and easily accessed off the M1. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The pub in the hotel provided a nice pint and a great place to finish up a day of touring around the island....

This hotel made for the perfect first night after arriving in Ireland. A great starting point for a road trip, with a parking garage next door (complimentary) and not too far off the highway. If you are using this as an airport hotel it is a little out of the way. We noticed a train station nearby that takes you...

Although a little further from Dublin than we had imagined we were actually pleased to be there. We were ther for rugby at Lansdown Road and took the train it was clean and only cost 10 euros each return. Staff very friendly, especially the jolly singing chef at breakfast, which was hot and filling. The whole hotel was extremely clean...

Everything was as advertised. Balbriggan is not as close as some places to Dublin airport but it is still very convenient and easy to get to if you are flying in or out of there. From the hotel it is a five minute walk to the train station that goes right into Dublin. It's a convenient drive from here to...

We couldn't have been better looked after on our girls weekend. We received a really warm welcome from Arissa & Emma Mc, and their warmth carried through the full stay, also with Thomas in the bar. Nothing we asked for was too much bother, and we had such a great time we stayed on to have lunch and more drinks!...

We stayed at the Bracken Court for a three night family break over St Patricks weekend, went into Dublin City centre for the parade with the kids and back to the hotel for the evening and dinner, unfortunately we were not allowed into the bar for food - food not being served platters only!! - the picture says it all!!!...

Really enjoyed lunch here. Arrived around 2.45 carvery finished at 3.00. We opted for the salad bar. Fantastic choice. We had a mixture of potato with pesto and basil, olives, coleslaw, chick peas noodles and carved ham. The two salads cost a very reasonable just over 11 euro. There was a lovely selection of desserts which we declined (too full)...
