About White Sands Hotel


Half an hour outside Dublin on the picturesque Irish coast, this seaside resort is close to some of the world's best golfing ranges. In the small county village of Portmarnock, the White Sands Hotel enjoys a salubrious setting by the beach with quaint white cottages and the Irish Sea as neighbors. The property's romantic location makes it a popular spot for weddings and intimate getaways, although it's just as suitable for tourists looking for a base outside Dublin's center. The charming Malahide Village is a leisurely 15-minute walk away along the sea wall, where guests will find restaurants, shops, and the 12th century Malahide Castle. Closer to home, guests can make use of the hotel's Tamango nightclub or while away an afternoon watching kite fliers on the beach.

Great view; super quiet bar on a Friday night
This hotel was beautiful inside, great large room with balcony and super king size bed, large bathroom with separate shower, sofa and large T.V. - very clean and quiet. Oasis bar in the Hotel was super empty at 9pm on a Friday night in July ... we got taxi for 10 euro into Malahide, 5 minute drive from hotel, and went to a lively bar there as we would have just fallen asleep in the Oasis bar !!. There is a night club in the hotel but we never heard a thing and slept well on a very comfortable bed and pillows. Would stay here again.

A nice stopover before the morning ferry
Location, beach, location
We chose this hotel to end our week long tour of Ireland as we didn't want to stay in the city as parking can be costly and inconvenient with a car. No problem here the car park is quite big and free. It was easy to find the hotel and the beach is closely for an evening stroll.

A good alternative
The hotel has a great location on the sea front and a nice bar
The hotel was quiet, clean and well located in Portmarnock. It is a good alternative to the much smarter Portmarnock Hotel just down the road. A pleasant bar to pass time in after getting back from golf
