Royal Marine Hotel, Dún Laoghaire, Ireland
This is a traditional hotel in the south county Dublin town of Dún Laoghaire, which is right beside the sea and Dún Laoghaire harbour, and around 30 minutes by car or rail to Dublin city. The hotel was purpose-built in 1863 and has a historic feel, with lovely large public areas, wide corridors and spacious rooms, many of which overlook the sea at the front. The hotel is well equipped for a leisure break, with two restaurants, a large lounge, a health club with an 18m swimming pool, a spa and an underground car park. You can also take the Aircoach bus from Dublin Airport to the hotel.
We loved the coastal location and sea views from the front of the hotel.
Overlooking Dublin Bay, there are plenty of coastal and countryside walks on the doorstep. The DART train takes you into Dublin city centre.
By plane: direct flights to Dublin from Manchester and Birmingham (1 hour), and London (1 hour 15 minutes). It's a 40-minute drive to the hotel. Free parking on-site. skyscanner.net
