The positives were the reception staff and cleaning team who were friendly and straightforward. Also parking available and serviceable rooms with original artwork and no clutter. The overwhelming negative was an unscrupulous and avoidant manager. One of our group was unable to join us with a month's notice and we informed the manager by email. On arrival we were shown...

Dear Kingsgate, I refer to your above review regarding your recent stay with us. Unfortunately, from the information given above and without a name or date of stay, I am unable to respond specifically regarding your booking. In general, the only reason we would be unable to change a reservation from a twin room to a single room, for example,... More

Room was up stairs directly above reception, with no intervening doors to muffle sound. The rear bar was also just down another flight of stairs. Despite the constant loud conversations from below, thanks to earplugs had managed to get asleep early. Then there was a false fire alarm in the middle of the night. Cue more loud conversations from downstairs... More

69 euros - incredible value. This is a great 3 star hotel punching above its weight. Clean warm cosy room with a great breakfast. Having stayed in 4 star and 5 star hotels across the globe there is nothing better than home comforts and a full Irish breakfast and a cup of tea.

I have never visited at the Uppercross Hotel, but I regularly frequented the restaurant, Mother Reillys, while staying in Dublin. The property is unique in that there is a small walk-in pub inside the front door with about a half-dozen seats. A good place to watch sporting events as there a few unobtrusive TVs. One must walk down a small... More

The beds are excellent and the rooms are comfortable and cozy. The off street parking is a real bonus. I know stay 2/3 times monthly with work as do all of our organisation. For 65 euro per night it cannot be faulted.

The staff here are very pleasant. The rooms are not luxurious but spacious and spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds and enjoyed a good nights sleep. Very nice food is available in the adjoining pub. Excellent location for the centre of Dublin - and Rathmines itself has a lot to offer. Overall would be happy to recommend.

Spent 5 nights here with a local organisation on a business trip. Arrived quite late in the evening and check in was very efficient. It was less than 5 mins.
