The Beacon, Dublin
Chic Boutique
Staff were great overall (they made one minor error checking me in - did not get my card for incidentals, but that was easily rectified next day). Chose for proximity to Marlay Park - many other concert-goers staying in the same hotel. The bar could have been better staffed for the after-show rush, but they managed to get people served with only short delays. Restaurant on-site (Thai), and a small outdoor bar area for the smoking crowd, with TVs to watch sports. Quiet compared to other bars in the area (which I prefer - some of the younger guests went looking for more lively places to watch World Cup games). Room: Spacious, with modern furniture. Well-appointed bathroom with a huge bathtub and a separate shower. Mini-bar only stocked on request - would be nice if they replaced with a regular small refrigerator. Has a real ironing board and iron, which I made use of. Note to Americans - no A/C, although it wasn't needed when I was there. Decent wifi. There was one American-style outlet, which was handy, as I only had a couple of adapters (and lots of things to charge up). Walking distance to shops (huge Dunnes about two blocks away, and a convenience store less than a block). Halls are dimly lit - took me a bit to adjust. Lobby is attractive. Breakfast buffet offered for an additional fee.

Interesting decor choices, most of them harmless
During our visit, the Beacon was very clean and as quiet as any hotel gets. The restaurant was unusually good, as was the bar. The service, also including room cleaning and front desk, was very good indeed. The Beacon obviously is in the hands of interior decorators, and their decor and furnishing choices are unusual. Some are interesting and most are harmless. However, I believe the bathroom design, while striking, is dangerous. Entering the tub/shower requires the user to step (barefoot) over a ledge that’s about 30 inches [76 centimeters] above the floor. There is no handle in - or near - the tub entrance that one could grab when the floor or tub bottom is wet. Sitting on the ledge isn’t practical: it’s hard stone with a very narrow width. One other point: the fainting couch that substitutes for a reading chair in the bedroom is uncomfortable when sitting for any length of time.

Nice stay.
The hotel was in a convenient position for our needs on our visit. The Luas stops are walking distance and go direct into Dublin. We used the aircoach which is 15 mins walk and gets you to the airport in an hour. The hotel was clean and the room was very spacious. I found the roads nearby noisy at night, we were on the 2nd floor, we will stay here again but I will try and get a higher room or one to the rear. The hotel did supply ear plugs. We will stay here again, so it wasn’t that much of a problem.

Far from Dublin Center; Needs a Good Cleaning
Always amazes me when a company spend good money to put up a really lovely looking hotel, with a definite look that requires a lot of upkeep, and then does not do said maintenance. Equally amazed when a hotel in the 21st-century that is built to look rather nice, reverts to nowhere conditioning old-school European design and it's 30 in the hallways because they were not built like old European hotels. The rooms are loud when you open up the windows near the highway. So much so that instead of air conditioning they provide you with earplugs! The dirty outside of the building especially around the sign itself, should tell you something. Great shower but the door seals are gone in places and the drain is slow so it leaked all over the floor.The Hotel is next to a business area, and hospital, but if you're looking to go into the center of Dublin, the fastest way in, the green line, is a 13 minute walk and a 15 minute train ride into the city each way. Otherwise you were looking at €30-€40 to take a taxi in each Way. Taxi to Dublin Houston was €35. Taxi to Dublin airport ran about €48. The hotel has great features, and if they have a car or you are looking for a better value, and can put up with all the other costs, this is a pretty decent hotel. It would be a great hotel with a little more cleaning and attention to detail and AC. It gets hot enough that leaving the windows open is really a low budget hotel idea that doesn't fit the look and classification of this hotel.

Third time a charm
Our first room had an odor of cigarette smoke. We asked for in another room, which they did accommodate us. We found out later in the afternoon how noisy it was due to the loud bar music below us. We asked to be moved again, which they did. The final room was quiet and perfect.
