Stayed here, and had the complimentary breakfast, Very similar to other European hotel breakfasts, but liked that you actually ordered your hot portion, and could still browse the cold stuff. Others in my group got to ordering exactly what they wanted, not what was offered - less things than what was listed on the menu for example.

We were looking for a few nibbles and drinks when we popped into the George but it was only the lunch menu that was being served. We asked if we could share a main course and there was no problem at all. The burger was delicious and tasted great as did the salad. The staff were efficient and super friendly... More

Visited the George for lunch. I had spaghetti carbonara which was great value at a tenner. Good choices on the menu and value throughout. Minerals are only €1.50. Nice atmosphere at my window seat with a view of O'Connell St. Coffee was a bit weak. Service was excellent, Thank you Sarah.
