Right in the Dublin Airport Complex, this 4-star hotel has free 24-hour shuttles to the terminals. It offers free Wi-Fi and expresses check-in/check-out.
The Radisson BLU Hotel Dublin Airport offers 229 spacious rooms and suites. Each includes free Wi-Fi, double-glazed windows, free tea and coffee, and a private bathroom.
Instead of the 24-shuttle I decided to walk to the hotel, which was little confusing considering there were no signs or directions from the airport terminal. It tool about 15-20 minutes before I reached the Radisson BLU Hotel Dublin Airport, after crossing a very busy road with no pedestrian crossing.
The room was spacious, but the furniture looked worn, marked and knocked with scars from previous guests. Stylish it was not, and could use some updating. There was no in-room safe, which isn’t too big a deal if your only staying the night, there isn’t much to do around anyway. I did like the Nespresso coffee capsule machine. No mini-bar or fridge in the room. Rather basic for a hotel of this class.
Nearby there is a 24-hour McDonalds and service station that sells fast food and drinks. Guests get free access to the Alsaa Leisure Centre, which is a 10-minute walk away and boasts a 28-yard pool, spa bath, sauna, gym and fitness classes.
It was just a night here to catch an early flight, but there was little that impressed me about the Radisson Blu Hotel Dublin Airport other than the location and convenience and friendly staff.
