We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Dublin and had an amazing stay. SIMON and KIERON from the bar were real gentlemans. Couldn't be more helpful, friendly and amazing if they tried! Thank you for making our stay as good as it was. We will definitely come back to visit. Love the O'Sullivan's

Didn't eat here, but did stop in an executive room, nice, comfy bed, clean room. Friendly staff. Had a nice bath and shower, big TV, bed was the comfiest ever! Shame quite noises outside from extraction fan, so couldn't open window and was very hot, aircon would have meant better sleep.

Even if from the outside it looks like a cold hotel the reception and restaurant is really warm and cozy. The room is a bit old but its nice and quiet and provides you a nice sleep. Also being close to a main road, sometimes it gets loud from ambulance or police passing by with the sirens on. It has... More

About 30 min walk to downtown, but ok if you like walking and want to get a feel for the city. Overall very nice hotel and staff friendly.

This Hotel has it all, very comfortable rooms, a great staff, excellent bar and restaurant and its location is a short cab or bus ride to city center. We will certainly stay here again and I highly recommend it.

The place was difficult to locate due to the outside being under construction, and not to mention hard to get into. Finding a parking space was not an easy feat, and we had to park in a space close to the back of the hotel in the underground garage. The hotel lobby was ginormous, decorated tastefully, and appeared to come... More

We stayed here 2 different evenings 5 days apart, due to travel arrangements and needing to get our daughter to the airport the first stay before continuing our trip. The hotel was exactly what we needed. Close to city centre (via bus or 15 minute walk), close to Budget to drop the rental car off (4 blocks away on same... More

Been coming here for many years and always get a warm reception. I always recommend this hotel to friends staying in Dublin and on this occasion we were meeting some who were staying here. The bar staff provided excellent customer and were very helpful and knowledgable especially Eoin and Simon and the food was delicious.
