For shoppers, golfers and shoppers who like to golf, it’s hard to think of a better place than the Crowne Plaza Hotel Blanchardstown. It’s a 4-star hotel to the north west of Dublin, with one of Ireland’s largest shopping centres on its doorstep and a 27-hole golf course just a 5-minute drive away.
If all you want from your trip is to explore Dublin’s central attractions, the Crowne Plaza probably isn’t for you, but shoppers will love the proximity to Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. Just a 2-minute walk away, the centre has 180 shops, four department stores and three retail parks. Shopped out? There’s a nine-screen cinema, the hotel is a 5-minute drive from Hollystown Golf Club (a 27-hole parkland course) and the Draiocht Theatre is a 5-minute walk. The Crowne Plaza is a 20-minute drive from Phoenix Park and Dublin Zoo -- and for daytrippers, central Dublin a 30-minute drive or an hour on the bus.
The hotel’s AA Rosette Forchetta Restaurant, serves up Italian dishes, including pasta, pizzas, steak and fish and offers an extensive wine list. You can also eat at The Sanctuary Bar, which serves burgers, sandwiches and a carvery lunch, and is open from lunchtime through to the evening.
