My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bewley's the entire stay of our trip to Ireland. We decided to stay at the Bewley's because of its rates, and the central location in Dublin County. The hotel is not a walking distance from the Airport, but they do have excellent (free) services to and from. Since we did not rent a car during our stay, we found it very easy for us to jump on the Hotel bus service to the airport, catch a bus there and then head into Dublin City center. The staff at the desk was also always very helpful in calling a cab for us, which we rode to nearby Malahide and then jumped on the DART for easy Dublin County exploration.
The staff friendliness was a big relief, especially since this was our first time traveling without a group. Being on our own was intimidating, but the staff was welcoming and often reccomended places of interest to visit. They were also happy to send us new towels, tea bags and change our money out into smaller notes.
The stay at the Bewley's was less "Irishy" than a normal American would expect at a small B&B, but our activity level and eagerness to stay out late worked well with the hotel's shuttle service and 24/hr staff. We also made sure to load up on our breakfasts at the Bewley's, to avoid buying lunch later in the day while we were busy seeing the local sights.
The hotel does stick out like a sore thumb in its location (there are ponies 100ft away and small houses surround the area), its moderness doesnt fit in very well. Getting to Dublin was easy, but getting elsewhere is a little more tricky, especially without your own car. You should also expect to hear the planes taking off from the airport, as well as other doors opening and closing next door.
