I though the rate was good which included the morning breakfast. We didn't spend much time at the hotel but found the staff welcoming and helpful when we were. Good location a short walk from the main city centre. The rooms were clean and fresh towels although bathrooms were a little tired which didn't bother us much.

Stayed here for a concert in Croke park. The location is ideal, only 10 min walk to Croke park. And the reception staff were welcoming. However the decor is very dated and a little grubby. Some areas good do with a good clean. There was black mould in the shower and stains on the head board of one of the... More

I took my sister for her 21st this year - we were on a tight budget so 4 of us shared a bedroom in the B&B section of this hotel. We had a very early flight arriving, getting to the hotel for 8.30am - we assumed this would be far too early so planned to drop our bags and get... More

This property is very well located, not even a ten minute walk to O'Connell St and 20 minutes to The 3Arena as well, handy given the usual post concert crush on the Luas following anything on out there. Bed was comfy, room was clean, bathroom spotless to the point you could still smell the bleach. There wasn't a fault to... More

Stayed here for ac/dc concert ideal location. Decor dated, carpets dirty, breakfast very poor,no bar facilities. The price for a one night stay breakfast free was €149 a bit two expensive. The staff at reception were very helpful but the breakfast staff leave lot to be desired.

We stayed at the Townhouse for five nights in June 2015 and recommend it enthusiastically. It's an older property that has been updated and offers great value. Our room was comfortable and well appointed, including hairdryer, shampoo and soap, a good shower, and ample space to hang clothes. The bed was comfortable, although a comforter/duvet is overkill in the summer.... More

My husband and I came here for our one-year anniversary and were so glad we did! Dave and the entire staff were incredibly friendly from the second we walked in the door at nearly 7am the morning of our check-in after flying all night. They held our bags in a secure room til check-in time and gave us excellent advice... More
