Website Misleading - A Four Star Hotel???

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: Free complimentary hotel parking. On site-bar and restaurant. Friendly staff.
Cons: Enforce a strict quiet time in the evening and do not book loud parties during the weekdays. Provide washcloths! Revise website.
Location: 4 blocks from the Irish Sea. Not much to do nearby. Town lacked excitement. Short drive to Dublin but would recommend staying in a different town.
After spending three nights at this hotel, I would not recommend it to anyone. We lacked sleep each night as children were allowed to run through the hallways at 2:00 a.m. each morning. Additionally, a party was booked on a Tuesday night in one of the banquet rooms in which loud music played until 2:00 a.m. which we could hear in our room. No washcloths were available even when asked at the front desk. The rooms were clean but very interesting ways to get up to your room through several staircases. One plus was the complimentary parking while staying at this hotel. We had issues with booking this through Expedia as when we arrived they said we had not paid for our stay (which we had through Expedia). We did, however, receive a lower rate at the hotel than on Expedia. As far as the town of Balbriggan goes, there is not much to do within the town. There were several businesses that had closed down. Two pubs in town lacked excitement. Good thing there was a SPAR nearby so that we could buy something for a quick breakfast. Reduced breakfast buffet tickets available at the front desk, but still 8 Euros. Few restaurants within walking distance (primarily American food). The website was very misleading as it looks as if you are overlooking the Irish Sea, however, you have to walk about 4 blocks to see it. We had booked this hotel to be located close to Dublin, but I would recommend staying in Skerries. Very disappointing stay for our first trip to Ireland.

Great hotel on the outskirts of Dublin

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: Friendly people, very clean, well maintained, old but everything updated. Bar and restaurant on the premises but reasonably price, locals actually go
Cons: Nothing
Location: Barbriggan is nice with a beach near by. I met a local at the hotel bar who showed me around. Even treated me to a Guiness.
Great hotel, located in Barbriggan which is an old fishing town easily reached by train or bus. This was the nicest hotel we stayed in while on our vacation to Ireland/England/Scotland. The price was great too.

What a gem!

Posted May 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Wanted to find a hotel somewhere between Belfast and Dublin. We were intrigued by the other reviews so decided to stay here. What a fantastic hotel. We had a HUGE room (even by US standards) great bathroom too. Perfect beds. My only regret is that I didn't find it sooner. I would've stayed a few days. The Bracken Court Hotel isn't that far from a Dublin. Well worth the time to stay here. We'll be back!

Excellent

Posted May 12, 2014
Lovely hotel in a nice little town - it's not the busiest town but it's lovely and the people are nice. The hotel is excellent and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. Loved our stay and will be coming back. Only negative was WiFi didn't stretch to the room.
