Although 20-30 minutes outside the city centre, this hotel is located next to the University College Dublin. Our favorite feature was the beautiful atrium style bar that overlooks the vast and exquisite gardens of this older and stately property. The rooms are adequate (although dated) and comfortable. The restaurant is good and offers very good breakfasts. The weekends tend to be quite busy (weddings). I suggest not being on the ground floor for a quieter stay. Parking is included.
