Stayed at the hotel early November for 2 night for a city break. The hotel is nicely decorated and the staff where polite enough. We stayed on a deal including 2 nights stay, breakfast both days and an evening meal we also selected the free tickets to the Guinness factory.
The room had a large comfy bed, the view out the window was of the roof below and other rooms on the other side but we didn't mind much as we didn't look out the window other than first arriving.
We had an early flight so arrived at 8am. They gave us a voucher for cheaper breakfast which was very large and delicious! It was €12 each but well worth it. We then waiting in the lobby for our room. They managed to get a room for us at 11:30 which was much earlier than the check in time of 3 o'clock which we where very grateful for!
We got a 2 day pass for the hop on off bus and one of the stops is just next door at the jail which is worth a visit, But we travelled to where we wanted from here which was very handy so the hotels locations wasn't too bad due to this.
The bar at the hotel is nice and relaxed it is expensive but we where happy to pay it so just relax. It was around 6/7 euros a drink and around 10 euros for a cocktail.
The free evening meal was delicious, this is the only time we ate at the hotel other than breakfast and it was extremely nice and the service was good.
We had to get taxis to and from temple bar in the evening due to the hotel location these where around 10 euro which for some people may be a bit much. A taxi from the airport to hotel varies I found between 25-30 euro.
We managed to see all the sights we wanted to in Dublin in the 2 nights we where here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would stay again.
