Lucan Spa Hotel
“Informal, natural hospitality and all the staff make you very welcome” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
Set in its own grounds and 20 minutes from Dublin Airport, at the start of the M4, the main artery to the west of Ireland, the Lucan Spa is a lovely Georgian house with modern extensions. Originally built to accommodate guests taking the waters at the former spa, the building retains many of the architectural features of the period. Bedrooms vary in size but are well equipped. There are two dining options: dinner is served in Hanora D' Restaurant, and The Ballyneety Bar is for more casual eating. The hotel's event space has a good reputation for hosting weddings and conferences.

About the area
It is often visited on a weekend trip, but rushing around is not the best way to experience Dublin. When Ireland joined the European Union, an economic boom began that flourished in the ‘Celtic Tiger’ years of the 1990s – fashion, the arts, food and Irish culture all blossomed, turning Dublin into one of the world’s hottest city destinations. Its transformation has continued into the 21st century with a technology boom.
There is something very special about this small city with its split personality – exhilarating and chic on one side but traditional, with an older generation still hanging on to pre-EU values, on the other.
One of the city’s irresistible charms is its welcoming people; so take time to relax in the pubs and cafes while absorbing the craic that is synonymous with the Irish. Slide away from the touristy themed pubs to discover the real heart of Dublin in its less well known taverns and in conversation with the locals.
