Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A 20-minute walk from the city center, very close to Croke Park stadium

The Croke Park Hotel is located a 20-minute walk from the center of Dublin. The only landmark within a close walking distance is the Croke Park Stadium, home to the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and concerts. The hotel is located between Dublin Airport and the city center.

Dublin has changed dramatically in the last 15 years. First there was the boom of the Celtic Tiger that brought great development and growth to the city. As a result of this wave of wealth, the city now has a cosmopolitan feel that it never had before. Since the economic bust, restaurants and hotels have generally retained the same quality, but the city is less expensive. Dublin has beautiful gardens, museums, and theaters, but it is the everyday things in the Irish capital -- like sitting in a local pub and having a pint -- that are more exciting here than anywhere else.

  • 15-minute drive to Dublin Airport
  • 2-minute walk to Croke Park Stadium
  • 6-minute drive to Moore Street food market
  • 7-minute drive to Trinity College
  • 7-minute drive to National Botanic Gardens
  • 8-minute drive to Christ Church Cathedral
  • 9-minute drive to Glasnevin Cemetery
  • 10-minute drive to Baggot Street, home to local pubs
  • 10-minute drive to Guinness Storehouse
  • 12-minute drive to St. Stephen's Green
  • 13-minute drive Kilmainham Gaol, a former prison, now museum
  • 14-minute walk to St. Patrick's Cathedral
  • 15-minute drive to Irish Museum of Modern Art
  • 2-hour drive to Belfast
