We chose the Bracken Court Hotel for its proximity to both Dublin city center and Newgrange. It's a bit farther than we expected from Dublin, but doable--and close to the train if you prefer not to drive. It's convenient for getting an early start to Newgrange and surrounds. Check-in was warm and friendly. The rooms a little tired but spacious....

This hotel is probably slightly overrated at 4-stars, but it is good standard 3 star. Personnel very friendly and the food in the bar/restaurant was really good. The location is good too, with a nice walk to the beach nearby.Good wifi. Rooms out the front a bit loud - couldn't keep the window open.
