My husband & I spent 3 nights here while on a Brendan Tour of Ireland. It was by far the worst hotel experience we had on our trip. Brendan Tours told us they use this hotel because it's so centrally located, which is certainly true. It was so central to all of the action on Eire Square that we were kept awake, one night until 3 a.m. due to a local "prom" being held in the hotel. There were people carousing in the streets, yelling & smashing bottles. In desparation our tour director went to the police station on our last night & asked for patrols in the Square, which helped some. Or maybe we were so exhausted by the 3rd night that we finally slept through the noise.
Additionally, our room was very small & cramped with no luggage racks (when requested the front desk told us there were none left), only 5 hangers in the wardrobe & a blanket that was too small for the bed. On the plus side, the room had a fridge, a keyboard to access email through the TV, & a spacious bathroom. Unfortunately there was no air conditioning, so we were forced to suffer with a stuffy room, since opening the window wasn't an option with the noise outside.
The public spaces in this vintage hotel are well maintained & elegant. But that's small comfort since we couldn't sleep in the lobby, although it wouldn't have been any noiser than our room! Needless to say, we wouldn't stay here again or take any tour that stays at this hotel.
