“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Have stayed at this hotel before and always had a good experience. The location could not be better, just metres from O'Connell Street and the heart of the city. We stayed on the 4th floor and found little or no noise from the ground floor which is always crowded with people attending the Irish dancing show which is on nightly. We stayed three days and had breakfast each morning which was excellent and a word of thanks to Carmel who runs the breakfast room with military precision. We also had an evening meal on one evening which was not up to the hotel's usual standard and could only be described as very average. Apart from the evening meal, our stay was very enjoyable and we will return soon. .

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 4th floor if you are a light sleeper.

My sister and I stayed at the Arlington Hotel for 3 nights in February. The hotel is situated just off O'Connell Bridge. The rooms were very comfortable with every amenity. The breakfast each morning was good and adequate. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

We stayed the one night to tour Dublin, before traveling throuout Ireland. The beds were comfortable, room clean, but dated, the room rate was very reasonable for 3 adults. About $100 total, and included a good breakfast. Closest partking is a 1/4 mile away. The Arlington has a pub and restraunt attached and nightly has an excellant dinner show, very reasonable priced. Everyone there is very friendly. Will stay there again.

Just came back from a fabulous weekend in Dublin. Have visited the city many times and stayed in a number of places but The Arlington, O'Connell Bridge was by far the best place to stay! Was given a very warm welcome by staff at reception and the porter directed us to rooms. We had a twin room which was well equipped and very comfortable. The entertainment was second to none! lots going on!! Bar staff were very friendly. Downstairs there is a night club so you need never go outside the door!!! Although there are some brilliant places nearby. Its literally across the river to Oliver St John Gogartys and the Auld Dubliner. Great location!! Entering the restaurant and dining room you were greeted by the most lovely waitress who was so friendly and accommodating!! Breakfast were good and hearty...just what you need for a busy weekend! Having made a mistake with our flights the reception staff worked tirelessly to sort it out! They were amazing...especially Gillian!! Shall be going there again, very soon!! I highly recommend it!!

Spent recent weekend with friends at the Arlington O'Connell Bridge and was very impressed. Have visited Dublin many times and previously avoided this hotel due to the stag/hen reputation but couldn't have been more wrong. Greeted upon arrival be very friendly reception staff who convinced us to transfer our booking over from the Trad Irish Dinner Dance eve in the Arlington, Temple Bar (same group of hotels) to theirs at O'Connell Bridge as "far better show"! Glad we did. Rooms were spotless and quite spacious. The ground floor bar was busy, loud but quite friendly and with a great band. The dinner show in the evening was excellent, quality hot food, choice for all, music by musicians that seemed to be having fun too and dancing was good. After a trip in to Temple Bar (Temple Bar pub always great) we returned to the hotel and sampled the basement level night club - a bit too loud for us 40's group and maybe a reminder of an over 50's singles night with associated prowlers! Breakfast in the hotel again reflected the `pleased to help` attitude of all staff at the Arlington and plenty of hot/cold options and excellent soda bread to choose from. Would definately recommend staying here whatever age and would consider it ourselves again on our next visit to my favourite City.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor (4+) if you're a light sleeper as the noise from the bar could...

This was my 2nd time round staying at the arlington and just as I remembered, the food was good especially breakfast, also a nice clean room, they even had rose petals on our bed as it was our anniversary and the entertainment was second to none. we loved Puca and the dancers and had 2 fantastic nights here. It would be good if both lifts were workiung as it was quite a wait although we eventually found the stairs! The only downside was the room was very warm, we had to open window which meant it was even noiser than normal and the view wasnt great but it isnt enough to stop us returning! Thanks again

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room , although we did that but it such a busy area you cant avoid the noise.

Booked hotel and flight to dublin, then read the reviews of the arlington.......quite a few were not that good. But i only have good things to say about this hotel, friendly, clean, rooms lovely, night time entertainment good, lovely breakfast, ......faultless, location.......faultless. I cannot say anything against this hotel and would definently stay here again. Few comments previously made about outside noise.......did not find this a problem, your in dublin city centre some noise has to be expected, but this was not a problem even though we looked over a hostel from out bedroom window
