Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. Very nice area with local bars and restaurants and could walk to the city centre. Hotel full of character and rooms clean and comfortable. We had the ground floor rooms with a door that opened into the courtyard, as there was 3 couples staying in 3 adjoining rooms it worked out very well. The hotel also has a friendly bar area, with real fires which was lovely. Very welcoming bar unlike some hotel bars which can be cold and clinical. The only disappointment was the breakfast service, it was very poor. After being shown to our table we waited 15 mins and still no one had offered us tea/coffee, as there wasn't any staff present we had to go through to reception to ask for service, not good. We then had a huge Wait for the breakfast. We mentioned this again to reception and were told "sorry we are short staffed and we didn't expect it to be so busy". We had been booked in for 6 months so it wasn't as though they didn't know we were coming?. Also she said we have a wedding part in for breakfast at 10am tomorrow so if you don't want another wait, avoid this time. Not good, asked to speak to the manager, but was told not available and she would contact us, never did. Surprise surprise. It's a shame as the hotel and Dublin are great. It's not an inexpensive hotel so I would have expected better customer service especially from the front of house girl. rest of staff did seem nice, so maybe a one one. Probably wouldn't stay again although going back to Dublin in dec for Christmas shopping.
