The Pearse Hotel used to be a Holiday Inn. The trash can in our room even still had a Holiday Inn logo on it. The room was what I expected from a Holiday Inn kind of room- we had two double beds, a small tv, a hot water heater and tea.
I took off one point because of the bathroom issues. The toilet wouldn't flush unless you push the lever down with a lot of force. The shower's water heat was also not consistent. It sometimes went from freezing cold to scalding hot without me touching the dial at all.
Otherwise, the Pearse Hotel was a good stay for our trip in Dublin. It was affordable and a convenient location away from the city center. It was approximately a 15 minute walk (1 km) away from the Temple Bar area. I appreciated the distance since we were staying during New Years Eve and didn't want to be disturbed by the noise. If you can, ask for a room facing away from the street.
The hotel also has a brasserie that wasn't very expensive for dinner. I had a poached salmon dish that came with a salad, potatoes and a dish of steamed veggies for about 13 euros. Not bad!
I would recommend this hotel for the good value and location, if you don't want to be smack in the center of the craziness of the bar area. If not, the walk may be off-putting and you may want to look elsewhere.
