“Good location, dismal breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2005

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!

I loved this place. And here's why ! My husband and I stayed in it a while back because we were going to a Metallica concert at the RDS across the road. And although it was quite an upmarket hotel not one member of staff was snooty to us as we trundled about in our scruffy concert clothes. So in other words, it was good old fashioned manners and hospitality, and you can't say fairer than that. Oh, and the hotel was lovely as well....

We got a great deal through Priceline for this 4-star hotel. Comfy bed and just a nice hotel. We walked from there to the Temple Bar district and Graften St (about 40 min walk). Insomnia across from the hotel is great to coffee or a sandwich too!
