Beautiful right on the ocean
The scenery there is breath-taking. The bed was comfortable. The plumbing could be updated to where hot and cold water comes out of the same faucet. The building is older but clean and comfortable.

8/10 Very good

The hotel is situated at the head of a very long, beautiful, white sand beach (thus the name). It has a restaurant that prepared a lovely seafood chowder, with house-made Guinness brown bread. The rooms were modern and comfortable, with good beds and very modern plumbing in the bathroom. Good reception areas. The staff were very kind and allowed us into our rooms several hours early on the day we arrived. The hotel is also an easy walking distance into the Village of Malahide, which is lovely, with lots to see and do. We had a great visit to the model railway museum, the castle and gardens, and a lovely dinner at Gibney's.

8/10 Very good

We had an issue with our room after check-in. The gentleman at the front desk took care of it immediately. Then offered to take care of our breakfast but we had an early flight, then offered us drinks in the bar. We refused but the gesture was extremely kind and definitely made up for it.

Some of our lights didn’t work and couldn’t be fixed. The caulking was moldy. The tv reception was terrible. The front desk was not helpful and you cannot adjust the temperature in your room. It was cold and was good it’s in a timer for the whole building. Would not stay again.

4/10 Fair

Just under-whelming..........
Just was left wanting more from this property. For the greeting at the reception desk which I was clearly their second choice in getting help, to not receiving the type of room that I had booked, room was dated, bathroom was dirty and needed lots of refurbishment, the White Sands would not be a choice I make in the future. There are clearly better options out there. The only positive was that the surrounding area was nice.
