About The Dublin Skylon Hotel
Discover the many delicious menu options at the Skylon Bar & Grill, one of the tastiest restaurants in Drumcondra Village. You will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch & dinner in a contemporary setting designed by Audrey Gaffney.
Whether you are hosting a business dinner or looking for a private function with your family and friends, we have a renowned and excellent reputation with our guests to be the venue of choice for life's celebrations and special occasions.
Set in our warm and spacious lobby, the Skylon Afternoon Tea is an experience not to be missed. Alongside the essential elements of a traditional afternoon tea, enjoy a selection of elegant finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and delicate desserts that is all accompanied by a nice pot of freshly brewed leaf tea.
This was my second visit for afternoon tea. The service is excellent and I would especially like to mention Paul who looked after us as if we were the only people there. My daughter and 18 month old Grandson enjoyed themselves immensely. The only small gripe I had was that people were double parked and also parked on ramp to underground carpark. I parked a few streets away after dropping my daughter off first. And parking there was only €2 for 3 hours.
Hotel has been recently renovated and looks splendid. First impressions is the atmosphere is classy and welcoming. The staff are attentive and friendly and efficient. The food was lovely. Would recommend this hotel highly and its so close to city centre too.
The servers were very pleasant and helpful. A really lovely experience
We had a lovely afternoon tea. My mother in law was very impressed with her complimentary prosecco toast for her 80th birthday. Excellent service and wonderful attention to detail. We will be back.
We celebrated our anniversary last weekend and everything was amazing! The staff is very friendly and kind! In addition to this, in front of the hotel there are bus facilities to go to the downtown easily. I will definitely recommend this hotel. In fact, if I go to come back to dublin I’ll stay there😊 Irene&Marc.
Delay in serving was far too long. Actually had to wave at waitresses to get initial service and despite asking for desert menus, eventually had to go looking for them ourselves. One of the group of 14 did not get her dinner until all the rest had almost finished. Apart from this we like the Skylon but the service is not good - the same happened two years ago on New Year's Day - left waiting. Staff very nice when serving but should not have long wait to get service.
The venue was beautifully decorated, staff were extremely helpful and friendly, our party of guests thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and complimented the service provided. Thank you to all staff who made us very welcome. Merry Christmas.
Food was good & great variety too however we waited over 1 hour from ordering until food arrived. This included the kids meals.
We had a lovely time in the Skylon for Afternoon tea. Food was excellent and the service was very good. Paul looked after us so well! Thank you we will definitely be back :-)
We booked the private dining room for a 90th birthday lunch for 22 people - everything was great, from Colette's support and advice before we booked, to the food and service on the day in a beautiful, relaxing setting. Thanks to all for making it a great day.
Always excellent. Nothing is ever too much trouble for staff. We are there at least 4 to 6 times a year and I would highly recommend it to the business community.
Fantastic venue and superb service. Will definitely be back.
We had a dinner for over 60 people. The staff were excellent and very accommodating in organising the event and also exceptional on the night itself. The food was lovely and every need was well catered for. We'd definitely recommend Dublin Skylon Hotel.
Very pleasant and most obliging management and staff. Charming room for private party. Knew we would have 2 staff in the room but actually only one plus the chef. Elizabeth supervising was excellent - nothing too much trouble for her . Thank you.
Thank you so much for a lovely day yesterday my mother throughly enjoyed her 80th Birthday Lunch. The staff were so helfpful and very welcoming. The food and service was excellent.
What can I say about the wonderful staff at The Skylon. From the minute I contacted Clodagh in events to organise an afternoon tea for twenty of my family who came over from England to celebrate an aunts 90th - I was so impressed she could not do enough for me! The day was magical and (Poor) william who served us all day was absolutely brilliant! Hopefully we were not too noisy but if we were it was Hotel Managers fault as he plied us with 8 bottles of bubbly!!!! If Carlsburg could make hotels!! Big Big Thank you to Clodagh, William and Paul xx p.s also left our bank card there.. rang up the hotel and knew straight away it was there...we didnt have to wait for them to call us back!! Five Stars!!
We were so delighted with the warm welcome received at our event(my mum’s 70th birthday celebration). From the moment I reached out to the Skylon with my query I was met with enthusiasm. I appreciate being able to communicate my needs and having those needs and expectations exceeded! Thank you to Jade, Argentina, Rebecca, Molly, Orlaith and all of the staff for a great night!! Warmest Regards, Cathy
Thank"s to all the staff, that looked after our christening event of baby Amelia Anne. Everything was beautifully arranged from the function room to the service from the staff that served us a lovely menu. A good day was had by all. would highly recommend. Regards Maria
A big thank you to you and your staff for the absolutely brilliant day we had yesterday at our sons Christening. Everything from the time we booked to the food, the room, the staff and service we got was brilliant. Everyone commented on how fab the venue was. We would certainly have future celebrations there.
I did complain, and received my money back for being charged for 3 cars for parking. I think as we are hiring the room, and eating in the hotel we should not be charged for parking.
The Skylon was recommended to me by a friend who had attended a similar funeral party function so I called them. Everything was arranged efficiently and with minimum of fuss. We got a warm welcome and the room was really nice and had a lovely atmosphere. The staff were excellent and the food delicious. Thanks for making a difficult day a special occasion. Ursula and family
Couldn't recommend this place enough after the way we were looked after on Saturday. The staff are amazing and so friendly and professional.
Food was delicious and a fair price for what we had. Cocktails were perfect. All round it was a lovely experience.
Booked a private party & we were thrilled to receive a lovely welcome drink.
Staff were so friendly and helpful
