Nice bar, great atmosphere and music was good, pity about the manners of the musicians! Only interested in visitors from foreign countries, quite cheeky and then had the nerve to ask for a tip! Needless to say that I won't be rushing back, which is a pity!

apartments are great, spacious and clean. However the complete lack of security is a concern. They will literally give your apartment key to anyone who asks for it. Location cannot be faulted though, right in the centre of the temple bar area

There is also plenty of seating which is hard to find in temple bar. If your wanting to visit somewhere that had a great irish, friendly atmosphere... More

I actually stayed at this hostel for 2 nights in February 2014 when I studied abroad. I was there the weekend of the Ireland-Wales Rugby match. The only good thing I'll say about the hostel is that it's in a very convenient location. The Dublin walking tour is right down the road and so is most of the locations for... More

Myself and a friend stayed here over a week for a concert and it is in a prime location near good restaurants, stations and attractions. On our arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who was friendly and we were sent up to the room, this room was shared with 10 others and all beds were allocated. The... More
