I had lunch here today with a colleague. We arrived for a meeting at 11.30 -and were welcomed for coffee - offered a seat inside or out on the terrace. The service was prompt and very pleasant. Nothing was a problem. 2 x coffees were served perfectly and with little chocolate treats which were a nice surprise. We were offered... More

This was a great find. I booked online and had no idea what to expect. The bar/restaurant is big with friendly and efficient staff and excellent food. The hotel rooms are very clean and the price is hard to beat. Outside you can go for a lovely walk along the canal and the city is close by. I would highly... More

This is a small hotel, based at the side of the Canal, near Castleknock village, with Canal views at the front. There is a railway running at the back of the hotel, but this has never bothered us, as we only ever eat there. The Phoenix Park, with Dublin Zoo and Cricket, Polo Grounds and tourist hop-on hop-off buses is... More

We are frequent visitors to the 12th lock and it never disappoints. The food is great for pub grub and there's a really friendly atmosphere and great staff. On hot days there is a lovely beer garden over looking the canal. Great spot! Good selection of beers available too.

I booked this hotel over the Internet for a 2 night stay with my brother and didn't have any idea whether it was going to be good or bad. It was a fairly short journey from the airport and parking at the hotel was ample. I loved the location and the rooms were spacious and more than adequate. The bed... More

Good choice of food-We had fish and a burger. Portions very big but tasty... Desserts are to die for! My only quibble is that the bathrooms appear very clean... More

16.00 euro for a steak sandwich& chips. Frozen chips immediately set off alarm bells for me. Any meal above 12.00 euro should b accompanied by homemade chips ! Portion of chicken wings, overcooked and dried out ... Zero flavour at a not cheap price of 10.00 euro. Small positive was the fish albeit with the standard house frozen chips... An... More

Stopped here for a meal with my young daughter and two friends. Ordered a bar meal and service was good and efficient. Very friendly staff and accommodated my daughter with childs portions. Food was lovely and nicely presented. Would return for a midday pit stop. The walk beside the hotel along the canal is a photographers dream.
