My family and I stayed here for the beginning of our family vacation in June 2015. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel absolutely welcome. Our rooms were fabulous (and the complementary robes were such a nice bonus). The food was phenomenal as well. I have already recommended people to stay here and will continue to do... More

As with all of the places we stayed in Ireland, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We ate at both the hotel restaurant (breakfasts were great, dinner was okay) and bar (lunch was fine); servers were excellent. The room was good...comfortable bed, acceptable bath. Our room was starting to show its age a bit. The location was great for... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel located in a very quiet neighborhood. It's only a 20-minute walk to the city center. The staff at the reception desk were all very nice and very helpful. There's a nice little restaurant at the hotel where we had breakfast every day. The waitress went out of her way to get me... More

Property is picturesque with a great location just a short walk to Dublin attractions. It is reasonably close to a variety of centre city and outskirt restaurants as well as a major sports stadium. Good food in the Hotel restaurant. Too expensive for budget travelers and too small for families or big groups.

We had a wonderful experience here. The hotel is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood close to city center; it's a 20-minute walk to Trinity College and just a 15 minute walk to three historic pubs (O'Donoghue's, Toner, Doheny & Nesbit) for traditional music. The hotel is quiet, too. We were told all 31 rooms were full, but the acoustics are... More

Close to Aviva Stadium and a short walk to Trinity College and the city, this hotel has all the charm of an older, converted school with the advantages of onsite parking. Staff are helpful. Good bar with food and a restaurant that is well regarded, Ballsbridge is where a number of embassies are situated and the hotel is well patronized.... More

Only a short walk to city centre and historical areas of Dublin. We had car parked on premises (free) for 3 days and didn't need it at all. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Supermarket across road. Whitewash laundry down the road (which was fantastic). Hotel has restaurant and a separate bar/restaurant which serves slightly different menu. Other traditional pubs...

We spent one night here before travelling North for a wedding. The hotel is well located for a short taxi ride in to the centre or alternatively you can stay and have a drink and something to eat in the lovely bar attached which actually feels like it has life in it, not one of your normal hotel bars which...

We were there for just a couple of nights but I could not recommend it more. The room was beautiful, delicious food and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It also had a very interesting history I enjoyed reading details of.
