Nice modern hotel, gigantic bed as seems to be standard these days. Everything well up to standard one expects, and not vastly exposnsive for one night. Stayed here because we we were going to a concert at Whelan's which is a 5-minute walk away, but the place is also handy for the St Stephens Green park and other attractions e.g. Grafton St.
Be aware that Dublin is not a large market town like Manchester, it is definitely a capital city, and walking from Connolly station will take a long time and there appears to be no direct bus route. Get a taxi. The trams outside the hotel are part of a separate line which does not cross the city centre, although this seems to be being worked on.
The breakfast is good value for 13 Euro, except that the tea is *awful* and the coffee not much better - both are served by the cup from pots that have been standing around. Much better to be able to make one's own.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel comprises of two magnificently restored Georgian buildings, with a heritage of great historical and cultural importance to Ireland. One was home to the great Irish playwright, George Fitzmaurice, while 4 Harcourt Street was the birthplace of Lord Edward Carson, one of the founders of Northern Ireland and a central figure in Ireland’s Unionism movement. Entering through the tasteful reception area, guests will be struck by the stunning glass atrium, filling the lobby with natural light and overlooking the idyllic Stephen’s Green park. The stylish interior design throughout the hotel, with wood panelling and soft leather furnishings sitting alongside Georgian stucco ceilings and elegant fireplaces, beautifully showcases the fusion of old and new. George Fitzmaurice is honoured in the hotel through our bar and restaurant, which are named after two of his plays. The ‘Magic Glasses’ Bar is an opulent, comfortable bar where local businesspeople and visitors alike regularly meet over a coffee or drink, while the ‘Pie Dish’ Bistro, set in the bright atrium and the inner rooms of the Georgian houses, serves the finest in contemporary Irish and international cuisine. Located on the first floor, the Georgian library has a charming old-world feel, where you can sit in 19th century surrounds, featuring open fireplaces and chandeliers – an ideal way to unwind over a pre-dinner drink. A gymnasium is available for the exclusive use of residents, while the business centre is open 24 hours, with a secretarial service available for the business guest. Flexibility and choice is a core value of O’Callaghan Hotels. Guests can use the facilities and services of any Dublin O’Callaghan Hotel and have the account conveniently billed back to your room. ... more less
