Was nice but not for what we paid. Room was not well taken care of. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful and gave us some good pointers on what to do and where to go. Location was good but as the days went on realised we were in a pretty expensive area. Was ok but not great

The hotel is dated but is due a refurb in 2016, it's fine for a night's sleep in Dublin city centre. Bring earplugs and you'll be fine. I was given a free executive upgrade on arrival which was nice, but was then asked to pay for it the next morning. It was the hotel's mixup and really disappointing. I don't... More

Good afternoon Onee, Thank you for your recent review of your stay here at The Temple Bar Hotel. I was delighted to see that our reception offered and delivered a complimentary upgrade for you.

Stayed at Temple Bar Hotel with my friend for 3 nights during the week. We had a warm welcome by the lady on reception and given all the necessary information. The room was a little tired but did the job for us as we were out most of the time. We were given a room at the back of the... More

I would say that the hotel is tired but very friendly staff making the most of what they can. Temple Bar is very noisy, so is not somewhere to stay if you can't stand outside noise. Bed sheets were good, but no air con in rooms and ventilation was limited. Single lift was small which caused delays either going to... More

It's hard to read a guide book on Dublin and not read highlights about the Temple Bar area in Dublin. So naturally you make the assumption that Temple Bar is a trendy place to stay. It may be tempting but it's noisy, extremely touristy and the hotels feel tired and overworked. Temple Bar Hotel was no exception. Although the front... More

Let me start by saying I am the easiest going hotel guest and have never complained before. However, My stay in Temple Bar Hotel in June was the worst I have ever encountered and feel obliged to share my experience. To give you some context, I booked the room as my wife and I were attending a concert. As I... More

This hotel is in a GREAT location if you came to Dublin to party. Otherwise, you might want to look elsewhere. It is in the heart of the party, located at one end of Fleet Street. Also, don't expect much sleep as it is LOUD on the street until the wee morning hours. We arrived on a Sunday night and... More

Great location for sightseeing, but the downside is that at night the noise can be really high. I stayed on a Thursday night, so it was quite intense until 2 am. The walls seem paper thin, I could hear all the doors opening and closing. To add a bit of fun, the windows were cleaned externally at 7 am the... More

First let me say that Temple Bar Hotel is in a fantastic location easily accessible to pubs, restaurants, and many of the must see Dublin attractions. This can be a very positive thing depending on your trip agenda. Sadly there were some big minuses for us here too. I understand that we did pay somewhat for location, but Temple Bar... More

I lived in Dublin a number of years ago and know the city well. I have stayed in this hotel a number of times over the past 15 years and previously thought it a decent hotel. Maybe my Dubai experiences will make this review sound harsh, but I didn't really enjoy my recent stay at the Temple Bar Hotel -... More
