“3 days in Dublin ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Nice hotel, we flew in early and was a little worried we would not be able to check in after a 16 hour flight, but they were all set for our early check in.
Room is clean large for Dublin with a very nice bathroom. They have smoking rooms.
We went with the bed and breakfast plan and it worked out wonderful, breakfast is the standard eggs, potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, sausage, bacon, black and white pudding. Hot and ready at 630 am.
The hotel is about a 30 min walk to central Dublin and the attractions but not a bad walk at all.

A really nice hotel particularly if attending a match or concert in Croke Park. The location is really not ideal if visiting the city and is a taxi ride from the city centre. Nice rooms and large bar area. A nice stay all the same.

Second time at the Croke Park. Just as nice as the first time. Had a room at the back of the hotel - no view to speak of, but quiet, quiet, quiet. Great after a busy day in the city centre for the two of us to relax. Easy to get the bus into town, or hop on the free shuttle for the open top bus trip - check with reception for the departure times.

Had a "superior" king-size room. Clean, spacious, nice bathroom - good to be able to soak it up in the bath. Or there's space to dance in the huge shower! Full price would be a bit pricey, but there always seems to be offers on so keep your eyes open. We stayed 3 nights for less than the price of 2.

Not much in the way of facilities nearby (some local shops, pubs, restaurants) but it's so close to the city centre and the buses so frequent that's not an issue, although it can take as long to walk to the bus stop as it takes the bus to get in to town.

We would happily come here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are really quiet, soome rooms at the front have balconies, but there's not muc...

My boyfriend won two nights B&B at the hotel along with an evening meal, for two, while he was at a Charity Night in a local bar last year. As it was his birthday on 8th February, he booked it for that weekend. We arrived to a beautiful comfy room with two little bottles of prosecco and banner and balloons for his birthday in the room. The bed was huge and the comfiest Ive slept in ever. The bathroom was fab, enjoyed a hot bubble bath twice over the weekend. Was able to avail of free wifi which seemed to have a pretty good connection. The Executive Lounge was also made available to us on our floor - here we were allowed free tea, coffee, water and fruit. The three course meal in the restaurant that night which was part of our prize was delicious! My boyfriend claimed the steak fillet was the nicest steak he's ever had! One waiter we had was very attentive and we had a good laugh with him. Tall thin guy with darkish hair. Raging I cant remember his name, he deserves a special mention! We had a few drinks in the bar after this. The bar staff were also so friendly and helpful, one bar girl to the point that after spling the tiniest dribble from my Cosmo, she made me a fresh one for free! There was no need at all! Breakfast was great the next morning too, buffet but great selection and piping hot! Really enjoyed our stay at the hotel - we were sad to be leaving at the end!

This hotel is definitely 4 stars quality. We had a very pleasant stay here. The rooms are very comfortable and the matress is to die for. The room was very clean with daily service and in-room team and coffee service. This hotel also goes beyond with the nicest little attentions like chocolate in the evening.
On the minus side, the breakfast while ok could definitely be improved with more delicatessen. But overall a very nice experience. I'd stay here next time I'm in Dublin.

Great place to stay! I highly recommend this hotel. This hotel is about a 20 minute walk to the Dublin downtown for some great shopping. If not you can buy a 2 day ticket on the hop on hop off tour bus for about 17 euros. While it picks you up at the hotel it will not drop you back off at the hotel. But close enough for a short walk back. Make sure you pick up a map of the bus stops before you go. Nice large rooms with a great buffet for breakfast and the daily paper.

If I'm honest we can't really complain - for a girly weekend away we got an amazing deal for two rooms for three nights which included a tour of the Guinness storehouse (well worth a try!), 20% of their bistro (fairly expensive but the discount makes it reasonable for the quality), a free cocktail each as well as two free taxi journeys to a destination of your choice! The extras just kept coming! The rooms are a good size and most importantly clean, the view isn't great opposite the stadium, but we were not here for the views! Only downside is the distance from the centre - I'd say a good 20-25 minute walk, but really we couldn't fault the hotel, lovely helpful staff, especially Jessica in front of house who gave us lots of great recommendations for where to visit! Thanks for having us :-)
