Stayed here in March last year on a boys trip for the rugby at the RDS, had a great time.
Stayed here again in the summer with my wife and two kids (11&8), again thoroughly enjoyed.
The hotel is located about a 15 min walk to Grafton St and likewise a 15 min walk in opposite direction to RDS for the rugby. For those that don't want to walk there is a taxi rank outside, or just at the end of the road numerous frequent buses.
I found the hotel staff very friendly on both my visits, we had a nice breakfast and the bar serves a cracking pint of Guinness and is very welcoming.
There is a starbucks next door for the coffee lovers and plenty of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. In fact when I was with the lads we preferred the nearby bars at Baggot St/Merrion Row to the overpriced Temple Bar.
For family trips I recommend the Dublin Pass for access to the visitor attractions and also worth considering pre booking bus passes for the duration of your stay. If you with kids a trip to the Zoo and the Aquazone are well worth it. You can catch bus from near the hotel or from St Stephens Green to most attractions.
Ten of us have booked to stay at The Mespil again in May for the rugby.
