The rooms are clean, have enough space, kettle with coffee/thee, climate control, TV. The bathroom is clean and has good water pressure. Breakfast has enough choices for me (croissants, rolls, all English breakfast, juices, lemonade, etc.) and in the restaurant/pub you can get a decent meal in the evening. What makes this hotel special is the view in front of...

We recently stayed at the hotel as a party of golfers. The hotel is in a brilliant location for any golfer with at least 4 course within a 5 minute drive. The hotel itself is in a stunning location on the bay overlooking one of the finest and longest beaches I have seen for some time. The staff are very...

Not a great experience at the White Sands Hotel. We only actually spent about a couple of hours in our room not including sleeping but you wouldn't have wanted to spend any longer.

We stayed here for a night as we were flying out of Dublin next day and didn't want to be hanging around an airport hotel for hours. White Sands was an excellent and much better alternative to that ! It has a fantastic position right on the sea front, the staff were all very helpful and friendly, and plenty of...

Three of us recently stayed at this lovely hotel located right on the seafront in Portmarnock. We had an early departure from Dublin Airport the following morning so staying here was the perfect choice. The room cost 109 Euro for the night. Unfortunately we got one of the downstairs rooms which are not very well decorated, old and in need...

Stayed here for a couple of nights as we were playing golf nearby. The location right opposite the beach is very good & its an easy drive to Dublin. Our room was at the rear of the hotel so no views. The room was a bit on the small side and as is the case with the hotel on the...
