We stated at the Tara Towers 26 November til the 29th. and thought it was lovely.The rooms were spacious and had a fantastic view, the hotel staff were friendly and made you fell welcome nice well stocked bar but no customers ?except us!!.The No.4 and No.7 bus stops outside the hotel and the journey into the city centre takes 20 mins exact fare 2.80 euro each. and the taxi fare from the hotel to the airport is approx 35.00 euro

Great value for a spacious room.

I stayed in the Tara Towers on Tues. 3rd Nov. and was delighted with the large room myself and my friend were allocated. . It was very quiet as it was facing the side of the hotel so no traffic noise. The breakfast was adequate - all self service. There was no brown bread just toast which was already done lying on a hot plate - not very good. The bar was somewhat soulless and very quiet - not much of an atmosphere there. However the staff we met were nice and friendly and checking in and out was simple.

The best thing about my stay was...

The room and the bus stop outside the door of the hotel.

Quick check in and out of hotel. Very good price for Bed /Breakfast

cheap not very cheerful

Check in was a nightmare, arrived 7.30 pm gave my room to someone else. Room was very dated and needed a good lick of paint and some new fittings. Dinning room closed due to a tour occupying it. Food ordered from manager who did not quite know the menu, wrong order served, really not worth the wait as it was sub-standard. Breakfast showed great improvment.

The best thing about my stay was...

The breakfast service and the food choice and quality.

Good hotel

Have stayed here before. Rooms were fairly dated but clean and very big. Very good price and close to The O2. Near Dundrum also and only 500 metres from Dart station. If rooms were a bit more modern then it would be 10/10.

Tara Towers Dublin 4

Have stayed at the Tara Towers in the past and have to say always been really pleased. This time we were treated to a room which had been refurbed and the shower was excellent!

The best thing about my stay was...

We love the service because nothing is too much - even to the breakfast which we would have missed because we were leaving before 7 on a Sunday morning. They kindly gave us a packed breakfast for our journey!
