The hotel inherits all the charm of a 19th century school. The rooms have enough space and the bedding is quite comfortable, There is no mini-bar in the rooms, but the hotel offers free bottles of water and free biscuits.The decoration is very simple but very cosy. you'll definitely find the bathroom equipment tricky to operate (maybe an irish standard ?)
The hotel location is 10-15 minutes off the down town (Trinity college), next to a canal. The airport shuttle Aircoach stops right at the entrance of the hotel.
Be careful if you intend to work and need your wifi intensively. The connection is hard to establish and it seemed some areas were not covered, so my wife who was there for a conference had to go regularly to the lobby to work.
The hot breakfast is very good ( eggs+sausage+pudding and the pancakes).
