Wife n I stayed here for 4 nights over a long w/e (not knowingly over the Heineken Cup rugby final w/e between 2 French sides when Dublin was invaded by French fans) to have a brief visit of the Irish goods and greats and to meet up with a relative couple the last 2 days. This travelodge woudn't be our first choice location wise but it was difficult to find accommodation that w/e. After being stepped off the Air Coach by Trinity, with light luggage we walked thru Grafton Street, the side of St Stephen's Green, crossed the Grand Canal and continued down the Rathmines Road Lower to arrive at Travelodge, in about 25 minutes.
Checking in was quick and easy. We requested for a quiet room and pointed out the fact that we were light sleepers and were staying for 4 nights. We got a room facing the back garden on the 3rd floor and was indeed very quiet. The room was ok and clean and the bathroom as clean and bright too. The shower over a bathtub worked reasonably well and water was hot. Kettle was provided. TV was ok. There were supermarkets next door and opposite (Lidl), a Tesco 5 minutes further down and many eating places nearby. The bus stops were right outside though we didn't use the bus as we have had decent weather that w/e and so we walked all the time. Over the 4 nights our room was cleaned when we returned from sightseeing. Wifi was chargeable at 5Euro(?) per day which I don't think was reasonable these days.
Dublin was a great place for a few days and we also joined a day tour to visit the Newgrange and Tara Hill which we enjoyed.
I'd recommend this Travelodge if you don't mind walking a bit (20 minutes to St Stephen's Green) and if you can get a decent rate (say not more than 70Euro).
