In South County Dublin, near Dundrum Shopping Center, but far from popular sights
The Beacon Hotel has a relatively removed location from the bustle of the Dublin in Sandyford, a neighborhood in South County Dublin. The hotel is close to the popular Dundrum Shopping Center and is a short walk to the tram (LUAS) with a direct connection to the city center. The hotel does offer free parking for guests that want to get around by car.
The Beacon Hotel is a trendy 88-room boutique that is a breath of hip, fresh air in the Dublin hotel scene. All-white rooms have fun design features including pops of color, bamboo shoots, and ornate headboards. Bathrooms are equally chic with modern fixtures, gray tiles, and walk-in showers; some rooms have sexy freestanding soaking tubs in front of floor-to-ceiling windows. The location is far from Dublin's tourist spots -- but close the tram (LUAS) for reaching the city center -- and parking is free. Hotel features include the Crystal Bar for cocktails, My Thai restaurant, a beer garden, and free Wi-Fi.
