Review Summary

Photos and Review by


  • Hip boutique hotel with an emphasis on design and amenities
  • Minimalist rooms with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and modern furniture
  • Chic bathrooms with contemporary fixtures and walk-in showers
  • Some rooms have deep soaking tubs; some tubs outside the bathroom
  • Bright, inviting lobby with plenty of lounge seating
  • Crystal Bar attracts a hip crowd and delicious food at My Thai restaurant
  • Close to the popular Dundrum Shopping Center
  • Free parking and free Wi-Fi in rooms


  • Remote location far from Dublin's City Center
  • Free-standing soaking tubs lack privacy
  • Crystal Bar can become overcrowded on weekend nights

Bottom Line

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.
