Staying at the Crowne Plaza Dublin-Blanchardstown was one of the best decisions we made while visiting Ireland. The exceptional staff are the main assets of staying at this property. They went beyond
expectations - they were always one step ahead of our anticipated needs while we were across the ocean far from the comforts and familiarity of home. Our flight to Ireland was delayed, but the staff held our reservation, checked us in promptly when we arrived in the early morning, and helped us navigate the public transit system - down to giving us the exact fare we needed for two adults and one child on the bus from Blanchardstown Shopping Center to the City Center of Dublin.
This is one of the best hotels we've stayed in over the world with a top-notch CONSISTENT staff - from the front desk folks, to housekeeping, to the restaurant staff. There are many good hotels where one or two people are great at customer service, but this hotel's staff is totally customer oriented. This is what moves them from good to great.
While the hotel's location may be a bit outside of Dublin for some, the distance is well worth the opportunity to get the best service in the world. It's an easy 15-20 minute bus ride to Dublin and being a bit outside of the City Center allowed us the opportunity to be away from the noise and traffic of Dublin each night. If you want a hotel with great service, facilities, a fabulous restaurant, and access to more than just pubs in Dublin, this is the hotel you can't pass up. We loved it and we'll be back. [Less]
