Great apartment accommodated three of us for a Saturday night up for an international match. Just on the liffey about 5-10 minute walk from O'Connell street. Room 11, very nice and clean, single bunk bed upstairs and a quite large bedroom with a double bed. The stairs to the bunk bed is winedy and very slim and theres no space... More

The location is fabulous! Directly across the river from Temple Bar, Trinity, and rest of Dublin city center. We had a double bed which was fine but the room was crowded and tight for two of us. NEEDS: folding luggage racks, I don't like putting my luggage on the floor. Full Irish Breakfast was fine, nothing spectacular. The folks that... More

One of it's great advantages is the location, right in the heart of Dublin. The room is small but clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, we ate breakfast twice and it was really good . You can choose between full irish breakfast, vegetarian or just eggs and bacon. There were also options of peanut butter, jam, butter, cheese,... More

Lovely place to stay. Very good location. All the staff was friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. I asked one of the staff, if he could check me in online for my flight back to london, which he did and printed my boarding passes we stayed in the apartment. Only drawback, there was a draught that came in the window... More

Stopped here for 3 nights. Location excellent and airport bus 747 stop within 5 minutes from across the road and up the hill. Hotel very dated decor although clean. As you are next to the Liffey you get an occasional smell wafting about from the bank/ drains?. Rooms clean with tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast good. Location excellent / central. The...

The staff is very friendly and helpful. I had a single room at the top of the building. No elevator so if you have problems with stairs this... More

Stayed here for two nights whilst in Dublin with a friend. The room was a twin room with view onto the River Liffey, however there are 6 flights of stairs or has my friend said 58 steps to the room so not suitable if you have trouble climbing or breathing. The room was clean and comfortable but if you wanted... More

Staying at the Inn on the Liffey ruined my Dublin experience. You can do better! Pluses: Staff fairly accommodating overall: allowed for an early arrival, stored some of my food overnight and my luggage upon arriving early on a second occasion (isn't this standard though?) Good location, central to Dublin Minuses: Rooms super small, stuffy, and quite old Long walk... More
