Marine Hotel, Sutton, Dublin 13 The Marine hotel is ideal for those looking for a quiet location but is close to both the city centre and the airport. One of the main attractions apart from the golf facilities is its proximity to the charming old fishing village of Howth featuring charming bars, restaurants and coastal walks. The views from the hotel are spectacular and there is plenty of room at the back of the hotel for the kids to run around. The Meridian Bistro has a kid’s menu and you may also be lucky as often there are ‘Kids eating free offers’ to be taken advantage of!Please see their website for more information.
