Clean, well run, staff is generally friendly (can be hassled and a little short with large influxes of conferees and groups going to the nearby sporting events). Otherwise a mixed bag of the good and not quite so good: modern appointments (after four nights I still didn't know all the features on the room's telephone) but no flat-screen tv; temperature control on shower; quite and responsive wall thermostat; separate bathtub from shower stall. Good wifi and free; but then the place can be strangely penny-pinching: $4.75 for a can of Coke from the mini-bars (with no vending machines in the hotel) --also be careful, sensor controlled, you might be mistakenly charged, I was, plus the mini-fridge is set up so as to be unusable for your own items); 2 euro access charge for an outside line even if you are calling a toll-free number. No ATM machine. Rooms are quite expensive considering the hotel is too far from downtown to be considered by tourists (15 to 20 euro one-way taxi fare; 35 or more minutes one way by bus). Place seems gear just for business conferences and group outings to the sports events, with close proximity (2km) to the airport and free shuttle service. The sister Holiday Inn Express is attached via a conference center, i.e., exactly in the same location. Can't comment on the Holiday Inn side, didn't stay there. But with the famous stadium in the neighborhood, the dual hotel setup gives fans an option on price.
Just a fine, almost elegant, hotel for business purposes, events, or overnighting by Dublin Airport. But too expensive to recommend and out of the loop for visiting Dublin city.
