Fab budget hotel, decor and staff is great. Lovely room with coffee maker, kettle, iron, hairdryer (not the best) and safe. A little out the way but around €12 to temple bar / city centre in a taxi although there are very regular busses directly out side the hotel for about €2-3. Takes about 5-10 mins on the bus. Only...

Dear Stevoo69, Car hire is not your friend.... Come out of the airport, turn right and we are 10 minutes down the road. Two hours to find us; we feel for you. Next time you come to Ireland I will drive up and collect you at the airport. Then I would suggest using the coach company who pick you up... More

I booked this hotel in advance for a birthday trip for my mother's 50th. We arrived a little earlier than check in time but asked if there was anywhere we could leave our bags whilst we had lunch. The lady on reception was so bubbly and lovely. She took our bags and made sure our rooms would be ready straight... More
