We arrived several hours early and they gave us our room no problem. They have a taxi service they contact which is reputable, this way it is safe, less likely to be ripped off. It took less than five minutes every time we requested a cab.
We had a few questions as to where to go, which tours were good and which areas of Ireland were worth seeing, we were in town for a limited amount of time. Emer the desk attendant was extremely helpful, providing information that she knew as well as researched to be up to date. She took a good amount of time to help us as we'll as the concierge. No matter what time of day there was someone available to help us and answer questions. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable.
The rooms were nice, plenty of room, up to date bathrooms. Very clean. Bathrooms had a shower as well as a separate bathtub. Several lights in the room, nice and bright if you need.
A few things to keep in mind:
This hotel is not within walking distance and is about a 10 euro ride,one way, away from downtown and is not within walking distance. There is also a bus station to use which is about 2euro a person.
There is nothing to eat close so you will either have to take a taxi or do delivery. There were a bunch of delivery places, all different types. They also have a bar/restaurant downstairs which has a full menu. Bar open late.
They have power adapters to borrow, just in case you forget yours,10 euro deposit to use and they refund you once you return it.
