We stayed 3 nights at the Arlington Hotel Temple Bar at the end of a two-week tour of Ireland. It was the priciest place we stayed and also our least favorite. The location is fantastic and the desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was disorganized; our room wasn't ready when we arrived and both days we got knocks... More

Stayed for two nights at the Arlington temple bar, have travelled to Dublin on a couple of occasions but knew we wanted to be a stones throw away from the temple bar area. The rooms are abit dated, but overall the location is what we wanted. Good for groups, and the bus stop to the airport is literally outside the... More

As with other reviews this hotel does need a bit of an update. The floors squeak like crazy and the bathrooms need some work. You will need to bring your own toiletries which I was a little surprised about BUT the staff could not be nicer, the location is fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay here. For a first... More

I was able to check in before noon even though the hotel had been fully booked the previous night, which was great since I had that grimy "I just got off a trans-Atlantic flight" feel. The room was small but clean and tidy--and on an upper floor away from the elevator and on the back side of the hotel. In... More

Stayed 4 nights last week. The staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful we had a great time and the show on Saturday was brilliant. Many thanks to Amy and Francesca (hope the spelling is right) on the front desk. The breakfast is great everything you could want. The big let down is the rooms they are badly in... More

The hotel is in a good location as it is opposite Dublin Castle and very close to Christchurch. The room was a bit dated and quite shabby - the grout/sealant in the bathroom needed replacing and the carpets were worn in places but overall it was clean. My mattress on my bed was full of lumps and bumps and when... More

The Arlington Hotel in Temple Bar was in an incredible location with easy access to Temple Bar, Grafton Street, St. Patrick’s, Trinity College and even the Guinness Storehouse. It was very central and we didn’t need to take public transportation once to get around the city. The bus that takes you from the airport into the city also has a... More
