Bo oked via booking.com the day prior to arriving. Arrived to stay in our room at midnight after being out for dinner for the evening. Only to be told that they would not accept cash as a payment. I wasnt made aware of this upon booking. I had to stand there and argue the toss until eventually he agreed to... More

Upstairs a great pub / restaurant - downstairs - a small number of neat, quiet rooms. We had a long day on the road and booked at the last minute. Room very warm & clean - good firm mattress. Breakfast was really excellent. Would be really nice in the summer - as it is on the canal. Highly recommended

Very lively bar with good food. Lovely location on canal. Outdoor heated patio area leading to small garden. Rooms are down below ground level so our room was very dark. Not enough lighting in room to compensate for darkness. Furniture dark and dated. Free wifi. Fabulous breakfast.

I wouldn't recommend to stay here. When we arrived at the hotel there was nobody at the reception and one of my friends went into the bar area to get someone to come out. When the assistant manager came out he told us that we couldn't pay by cash and needed an (visa credit card) but we did had a... More

We were 5 ladies who decided to meet for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon, over the Christmas period. We regularly went there and always enjoyed our time. One of our friends brought her brought her little baby girl with her. The place was busy and as we were raving about the food in this place, we were approached... More

We were lucky enough to get a night away. From the outside the Twelfth Lock looks amazing. It has a really nice bar, nice food and pleasant staff. However our room looked directly onto a wall and a little noisy with the railway. Our main issue was, we returned to the room after a nice meal and got ready for... More

This is a very friendly hotel which we return to when visiting Dublin. The food is good, there's a lively bar, and easy access by train into Dublin. Special mention this time for a waitress called Magda. My husband mistook a 50 € note for a 10 €.She ran after him as we were leaving the restaurant and gave him... More
