The place has its own armosphere. People in the pub almost made me dance! We got a nice room with view on the river. I am really grateful for the experience. I proposed to my girlfriend in Dublin. And she said yes. I can only recommend.

Stayed 2 days to meet family who were passing through Dublin. Room was spartan, basic, small. Facilities worked OK, TV very old. Room noisy, poor sound insulation from very busy junction outside. Glad I did not need to stay in room apart from to sleep! Staff and breakfast fine. Overall, this place is in need of refurbishment.

Good points : - I've been welcomed very nicely and friendly even though I arrived quite late (around 10 pm) - comfy bed - breakfast is ok Negative points : - small old-fashioned room and tiny bathroom - the employees during breakfast were just chatting and didn't ask the clients for tea or coffee or anything. - worst of all,...

Stayed here for 2 nights and the location was pretty much perfect. Only a short walk from Temple Bar and opposite the oldest pub in Dublin! The rooms have all you need if you're looking for a good budget hotel. Only downside was the noise from the main road but this might have just been where our room was. Would... More

Situated about a 5 minute walk away from the bar heart of temple bar, with a doorman 24/7. Cheap food and drink served till 11pm, optional breakfast buffet. Had small rooms in good condition, with wifi included. Great service with friendly staff. Music on every night of the week!

Would definitely recommend a stay at O'Sheas. Accommodation is basic but very clean and serviced daily. The pub downstairs is full of authentic Irish charm with live music nightly. Very reasonably priced and tasty meals. Staff are fantastic and extremely helpful. We stayed for 2 nights when we initially landed in Dublin and enjoyed it so much we re-booked for... More

We booked to stay here for the May bank holiday weekend. Whilst it looks to be a little tired, it is in a good location and the breakfasts that they do are pretty good. This place overall is not great and we were a bit disappointed with the overall experience - especially the noise, considering that it is actually not... More
