If you're travelling to Dublin and want a clean, quiet, place set apart from the expense of St. Stephen's Green and chaos of Temple Bar, consider the Herbert Park.
The rooms are clean and large enough. Ask for a park view...our kids love the duck pond just down the footpath and Herbert Park is a great place to sit and have a picnic lunch on a sunny day. Rest of the hotel is not terribly exciting, but if you're there as a tourist-on-the-move or on business, you won't have time to scrutinize the amenities anyway.
One problem that really stands out: we had breakfast there this morning (not staying in the hotel this time, just in the area) and it was all kinds of terrible! The buffet consisted of tinned fruit, bashed-in cereal packets and the mangiest scrambled eggs I've ever seen. Even the orange juice had an uncertain twang to it...if you do stay, head just across the road to Insomnia coffee shop and grab yourself a bagel instead!
