Sadly far from the best. Room 101 no heating (in January!) TV unwatchable poor reception, no point in a tv if there's no picture. Room could do with a bit of updating but I could cope with that. Poor wifi in the room but the final straw was to find myself locked out at 2am. No clue was given that... More

What a disappointment..we had been looking forward to our stay. A few days before arrival I was contacted to be informed we were booked out due to water damage to the hotel. The hotel they booked me out to was not suitable and I made immediate contact to O´sheas to cancel my booking and sorted out an alternative hotel myself.... More

I stayed here for one night with my friend on a pre-Christmas break. We only paid £40 for the room between us so it was an absolute bargain, particularly for a hotel only 10 minutes walk from Temple Bar. The airport 747 bus stops just down the road (2 minute walk away) making it incredibly convenient and easy to get... More

The noe thing that I will always remember at this hotel was the excellent Irish breakfast. They are plentiful and well organised, with most willing staff. It is a shame that breakfast does not last as long as you wish, we could have stayed all morning. Still you have to see Dublin, and this is a good place to stay.

Recently visited Dublin for the weekend with a group of friends (16 of us) We went here for breakfast on both days. The ladies serving were fantastic and really made us feel welcome. The breakfast menu is extensive and the full Irish itself was lovely and there was plenty of it. The prices in this place are very reasonable as... More

We stayed here and found the rooms to be in need of a revamp, the room we stayed in had a musky damp smell we booked a double bed room and ended up in a room with a double bed and two singles which made the room very cramped as we had to leave our cases on the bed. The... More
