Location, location, and spacious rooms: the three reasons for choosing the Skylon. On the main road into Dublin city center from the airport stands this modern five-story hotel (now part of the giant Best Western family) with a concrete-and-glass facade and generous-size rooms plainly decorated in cool, sea-bright colors. Double beds and a pair of easy chairs are almost the only furniture in the rooms. A glass-fronted lobby and the Skylon Bar and Grill dominate the public
areas. The cooking is adequate but uninspired, with dishes such as grilled steak, poached cod, and omelets.
