Good hotel to stay for visiting Dublin and surroundings. Helpful people at the reception. Good breakfast. Clean and quiet rooms, although there where pubs nearby. Just 2 minutes walk to the shoppingstreets and 5 minutes to the Temple Bar.

Enjoyed a few days stay here which was very enjoyable. Bedroom was small but clean and comfortable and it was very well placed for looking round Dublin. We also ate in the bar for lunch and it was very good.

The hotel is clean, moden with all the facilities provided you would expect from a hotel providing 300 plus rooms. The bar/restaurant provided excellent value and... More
