When we arrived to the hotel, we parked and in front of the doors to get to elevators a car was parked. We told the front desk clerk who informed us that there was nothing she could do as they don't ask for registration numbers. We then checked into our room, which was booked weeks in advance. To have a handicapped room, when I called the front desk to let them know (in case this was an over sight# I was told that no it was an extra room that had not been booked. I then asked for a regular room, I was then told that we are staying on points and there are no room s available. I explained we booked weeks in advance! Why had we been given a room that was left over? The explanation given is that we are on our points. Well let me say the amount of money to accumulate those points is more then a free night stay. With all the traveling our company does between myself, and the sales rep #who stay for the most at Holiday Inns) and then to be treated like dirt because I am using up my points. I am not happy If I do not receive a response I will tell you that I will be changing with salesmen and myself the fact that we will not stay at another holiday Inn during our travels.
When in Belfast we did not receive our complementary breakfast because we were staying on points. I think if I ran a Hotel I would treat hose who are staying on points like GOLD considering the amount of money they spend to accumulate them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vernice52 Perfect place to stay to catch flight back home
We could not have picked a better hotel to stay at the night before our flight back home to the USA. Relaxing, clean and comfortable rooms, very helpful staff. They made sure we had a wake up call, and appointment to catch the bus to the airport. Great shower and comfortable twin beds. Perfect!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CelticFlyer Basic clean hotel fairly priced but noise and poor service ruined my night's sleep.
This is a very basic hotel located a few miles from Dublin Airport. It's clean and is good value for money. Nearby dining options are limited and basically consist of the Holiday Inn or it's sister hotel, the Crowne Plaza next door. Both hotels share an airport shuttle and it gets to be crowded at peak times. There is very poor noise insulation in the rooms so if there is a function in the function room that is located between the two hotels, good luck on getting any sleep. This was the case on the night of my stay. Despite several complaints the staff never offered to try and move me to another room nor did the hotel manager respond to my written complaint. The hotel offers free internet but it's service is very lacking compared to other IHG hotels in Europe and the Middle East.

I have stayed here now several times and it has always been a pleasure, with a nice clean spacious room with excellent bathroom. The staff are really pleasant and efficient. It is first on my list for hotels near Dublin Airport. Highly recommendable for efficiency, comfort and pleasant and helpful staff.

Room was nice, hotel looks quite new and attractive.

be aware this hotel does not give points for your stay - so what's the point of being a priority club member?

Rooms is quite small. Tv set is not modern. Showers does not have individual lotion, soap & shampoo. No facecloth. Breakfast does not have variety e.g. bacon. Lunches will be nice if served with cool drinks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jessie10 Beautiful room comfortable bed & excellent service.
My wife who has a very old sports injury had to attend the sports clinic. The fact that the Holiday Inn Express is only a five minute walk to the clinic made things so easy for us, as I am 69 years old & my wife is 64 years. Having surch a great choice of breakfast in the morning was a great start to the day. I would have no HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING the Holiday Inn Express to any of my friends. My wife and I will visit there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nuts4 Comfortable room, nice park nearby
I stayed for 2 nights at this HIE near the Dublin Airport. Greatly appreciated the shuttle service to and from the airport; although it's very important your guests understand where to find the shuttle at the airport. Overall atmosphere of room and hotel was comfortable. And enjoyed the pub/restaurant nearby; it was nice not having to go far to find a drink and food. The park across the street is a nice amenity to travel weary customers who need to stretch their legs. Being able to walk just down the street and catch a bus into Dublin's city center was easy, cheap and fun.
The breakfast bar was very complete with fresh fruit, hot service with eggs and sausages, cereals, juices, and choice of latte, mocha or espresso coffees. Especially nice at early breakfast was the fact the volume of the TV was turned off and music was playing.

From the moment I arrived till booking out it all went perfect, I had a comer bedroom which was big and clean.
There was no rooms available in the Crowne Plaza so I had to book into the express. I was hesitant at first as I stayed there about 2 years ago and it wasn't a pleasant stay.
For a Holiday Inn Express it was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by conrop Great place to relax before or after a flight
Staff and service are excellent and the free shuttle is a great convenience. Value for money for sure when you consider what a hotel in Dublin city centre would cost. Only drawback is that there is no fitness facilities available either on site or off.
Even still highly recommend the hotel if you have an early flight or arrive in late evening. Need to book early though as it fills up fast!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaddieRules Clean, comfortable room in a great location
My family of five stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Dublin Airport. Both of our rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was better than expected with hot and cold choices. Great location- shuttle from the airport was great. It drops you at the Crowne Plaza which is just a few yards from the Holiday Inn Express. Took us back to the airport at 5;30 am two days later. About a 15 minute ride to tourist part of Dublin on the public bus. Front desk staff gave us directions on how to catch the bus and had change for the exact fare. All the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. Pullout bed was good for kids but might not be comfy for an adult. Would definitely stay here again.

We just had a night inDublin after being in Derry for the Fleadh Cheoil. We were exhausted, and the staff here was very helpful. The beds were most comfortable. The staff directed us to a bus stop across the street to get into Dublin and gave us specific instruction on returning, as well and getting us the exact coins for the bus!!!
Very easy! And the shuttle service in the morning was efficient nd helpful, as well as the desk clerk that cautioned us that we would need a full 2 hours at the airport. She was right in putting us on the 7:30 shuttle for a 10 am flight. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by spices6 Very uncomfortable bed
The staff were quite friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was clean. However, the bed was terribly uncomfortable. For the price of 99 euro, I think Holiday Inn could invest in a better quality bed and mattress.

There were problems with the Internet connection (will have to pay 1 euro/10ish minutes if you don't bring own computer#, but staff completed my airline checkin and printed airline boarding passes; breakfast was good, although the same is offered, variety is accomplished by not eatting the same food each day; early hotel departure accomodated by take away breakfast bags; hotel will arrange taxi for your specific pick up #the taxi will be on time); public bus transportation is 5-7 minute walk, about 20 minute direct ride to city centre #downtown Dublin); building is in good repair and rooms are all standard, no upgrades ... rooms also in good repair. Hotel does not reward IHG members with a welcome bag. Hotel is an excellent value ... staff was helpful and professional.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MarieH Stopover in Dublin.
I chose to stay in this hotel because of the good rate for two rooms and the courtesy shuttle.
My sister, brother in law and niece stayed in the other room.
I asked for adjoining rooms. They were put in a next door room.
Regarding my stay, airport bus driver was very welcoming. Room, it was fine. No complaints. Lovely breakfast, very good.
Regarding my sister stay, the child's bed was very bad, and when it was rolled out, the entire room was full, with the parents having to jump over it to get to their bed. I would think this was not health & safety compliant. Plus, the rollout bed was unusable, following night staff moved them to another room, same floor, which was much better. They were happy with this, and everything else.
Reception staff were very informative.

Small, bare bones room....didn't look like the room in the picture...was OK for one night....being close to the airport is the only thing this hotel has going for it....difficult to find at night (staff gave poor directions on the phone) ....breakfast was what you would expect for free....would pick a different hotel next time.

We had to stay for only one night as we had a flight the next morning. The staff were very nice and the hotel is very clean. The free breakfast and shuttle were exactly what we needed. It was a bit difficult to find given the directions on the web as we didn't have GPS/sat nav but that wouldn't be a problem for most people. I would definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmdmam Good enough for the night before a flight.
We stayed at this hotel on the night before flying home from Dublin. We had two adults and two teens in a room with a double bed and a sofa bed and the room was absolutely filled by the time we got our luggage in. It was probably the smallest hotel room I have ever been in, but I can't complain too much because it was just a place for us to sleep for one night and was very convenient to the airport. The staff were very helpful, setting up a bagged breakfast for us and booking the shuttle. I would not recommend this hotel for any other purpose than a place to lay your head. If you're looking for more, look elsewhere!

Front desk was very accommodating, parking was free, breakfast was included, and the hotel is a 5-minute walk from several car rental facilities. Couldn't ask for a nicer way to transition for the flight back home! There were no special favors for IHG Rewards members, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hma225 Best value for money
I ended being in Dublin during a bus strike and the free airport shuttle saved having to use taxis too many times. I also ended having a few unforeseen annoyances and the staff helped me sort everything out. Sometimes it feels like Dublin overall ranks low on customer service in restaurants and the like, but this hotel outdid themselves with excellent customer service.

Seemed like a cheap hotel to me. Only one towel in the bathroom. My overall impression was negative because when I checked in, the clerk told me that I would have a handicapped room. At first, it didn't make a difference to me, but once I got to the room and saw how the room was laid out, I changed my mind. The room would probably be fine for a handicapped person but for someone who isn't handicapped, it was impractical. For example, the sink came up to just above my knees. Also it was the room farthest from the elevator so I wondered how practical it was for a handicapped person.
Anyway, when I went to the desk and asked for a room change, the clerk was less than pleasant. She seemed quite miffed with my request and told me nothing else was available. Only after I asked her several times did she look in her computer and found another room.

Often I book hotels near the airport for the end of a business trip. I try and return my rental a day early and use the hotel shuttle. This arrangement works great for this Holiday Inn Express. Prompt shuttle, easy location. Then from the hotel front desk, I was able to get a map and bus information to midtown Dublin. 2.40 euro each way, 25 min trip to O'Connor St. The front desk clerk was very helpful and accurate with her advice. See you next trip! Sure beats trying to deal with a car in an unfamiliar city, looking for parking etc. Bonus, I was able to enjoy a couple Guinness.

myself and my wife found this hotel to be very comfortable.as regards recognition of my platinum status,the only points you receive are on the stay.as far as i am aware there are no points awarded for refreshments bought in the hotel.we find that these awards are available at some of your hotels and at others.i would have thought these rules applied at all of your hotels
while the staff at this hotel are very polite they do not offer any plauseable explanation to platinum members.
