I stayed for one night and found the hotel and staff to be of a high standard. A major plus for the visitor is the pivotal location of the Hotel. It is within a few hundred metres of the Heuston Rail Station transport hub where the airport bus and the Luas tram stops. There are rail connections at this station to the south, south-east and west of Ireland. The Luas also connects to Connolly Station for connections to the north-west and Northern Ireland (Belfast) and Busarus, the main Dublin bus station. The Luas Connolly Station tram line passes through the City Centre with access to the main tourist locations. I dined in the Iveagh Bar and found quite a good menu with prices ok for Dublin. There was fast and friendly service despite the Bar being busy. The Free Wi-Fi in my room 317 worked well.
I have two criticisms - window sound insulation; wind noise at night from rattling or flapping fixtures or fittings in the outdoor area overlooked from the room window disturbed my sleep and an email I sent in advance to the Hotel concerning car parking facilities was not answered.
