Well i tell you one thing. This place is bang for your buck! Came up with herself for a well needed break. Was met on arrival by some chap who looked me dead in the eye and goes 'I am John', nods at us and he just walks on. We get the check in done and leave the stuff in... More

Arrived, no parking, pre-booked otherwise would have run a mile. Rooms tired, the hotel is in need of a makeover. Threadbare staircarpet, creaks from everywhere. The bar was no better, staff didn't want to be there, kids running amuck, far from impressed. The ray of sunshine was that we turned into the wrong door and found the best indian restaurant,...

The reason my friends and I visit Ireland every other month is for the friendly, welcoming culture and the heavy drinking sessions, this is the 1st Dublin hotel that we have found that not only make you feel welcome but also where the staff and locals actively join in with you. This place is without a doubt a little haven... More

The car park was nowhere near big enough and cars were clearly abandoned causing double parking, and quite a bit of manoeuvring was required to ensure you wouldn’t come back to find your car damaged by someone else’s attempts. If anyone had to... More
