You can get fooled into paying a lot to stay in a hotel in Dublin City center, then you will get a cramped hotel that is hard to get to and even harder to park in. But the Crowne Plaza Northwood is
only 10 minutes from City Center, is easy to access, has easy parking and is a top-notch facility.
The first thing you notice is that you are across the street from Santry Park, where you can run or take a walk. The property is well-kept and the lobby is very nice. The bar/lounge is modern and attractive and makes a nice place to relax with friends or meet with coworkers.
I was impressed by the room, which had a lighted mirror on the headboard, underbed (floating) lighting, and a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower and enough water pressure to blast your hair straight.
I stay at this hotel most times I travel to Ireland and have had many good experiences here. [Less]
