Dublin Zoo Family Break

Really liked this hotel from the minute we walked in. Reception staff really helpful. We went to the Dublin Zoo and when we arrived back the bar was still serving food. Food was excellent and the waiting staff arequired great. Shauna couldn't do enough for us and done everything to make sure we enjoyed our meal. We have 2 kids and she done above and beyond to keep them happy as we have one fussy eater. Breakfast was fab the following morning and again the staff were very nice. Would definitely stay again

Winter Trip to Dublin Zoo

Really enjoyed our stay, staff were friendly, down to earth and helpful. Room was comfortable. We used it as a base for exploring the Dublin Zoo the following day and it proved perfect. Highly recommend it.

Short Dublin Break

First time staying in the Red Cow Hotel for our annual trip to the zoo. There were 2 families booking in and the hotel put our rooms side by side as requested and were an absolute pleasure to speak to before our arrival. The hotel is just beautiful, extremely friendly staff on reception, in the bar and especially in the restaurant. We were very well looked after at all times. Both dinner and breakfast was absolutely superb, and the rooms were very nice, and more spacious than any other family rooms we have stayed in, in the past. We did not want to leave the next day, and all 8 of us cannot wait to return again!!
