10 minutes from O'Connell Street. Opposite Connolly Railway station, bus and tram stops. Great staff throughout but special mention to bar staff Paddy, John and Sean (who never stops working!) Tiny smoking area for the lepers. Great views across the city from top floor balcony. Special private room with free snacks and bottled water for Premier King residents. Great bed... More

This hotel is not the most centrally located (yet it's still in walking distance or a short taxi ride to everything.) But if you want a clean, comfortable, charming hotel with a delicious breakfast service then the North Star is for you. While they have maintained the historical charm of the downstairs (I kept imagining Oscar Wilde dropping in for... More

My partner booked this hotel through Lastminute.com's Secret Hotel, and it was terrific. Its location, in a poorer part of Dunlin, probably would have put us off if we'd been booking direct, and our taxi driver warned us to be careful when walking about at night, but we need not have worried. The hotel is genuinely 4-star with lovely decor... More

We stayed one week in a room on the first floor, just opposite the car park. The pics here on the web site look nicer than from the window of our room. There was a terrible noice outside at night and in the morning like a jet trying to start. We did not notice the nearby trains from the station... More

The hotel is located near the heart of the city, within walking distance of nearly all the major sites and across the street from a major rail/bus station. We found our room to be very comfortable, the staff to be very helpful--answering our questions and helping us deal with the airline when our luggage was lost, and the breakfast to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family to celebrate my husbands 50th and daughters 18th. Hotel was delightful. We arrived on an early flight and left the luggage at reception until out room was ready. A central location, 15 minute walk to Temple Bar area, less to the shops! When we checked in, we were kindly upgraded to a... More

The location of the hotel was fine for us, about 10-15 minute walk to Temple Bar area. We were very disappointed with our room (Room 266) as it had the most disgusting smell of dried urine, so we requested be be moved to a different room. Obviously not a great start to our weekend away. Not comparable with other 4****... More

Dear JayMil1875, Our reception team do in fact recall your recent stay with us from the reference to your room number. On inspection our accommodation manager found that the unpleasant odour was in fact due to maintenance street works in the immediate vicinity of some of our second floor rooms that morning. I understand you were as a gesture of... More

We stayed at the North Star in July. The Hotel is located very near the centre of the city, the staff were very friendly and helpful.

First off, let me just say that this is a great mid-sized hotel in great condition, in a great location and good value for the prices you pay. The rooms are quite spacious and feature a quasi chic décor. I also loved the Moorish statues at the boom of the grand staircase in front of the entrance. So, all in... More
