We stayed for 2 weeks at the Twelfth Lock and found the hotel excellent. It is not run by a huge hotel chain, but is a small (10 rooms) boutique hotel with a fabulous restaurant on one side with a pub on the other side which has an outdoor covered patio. It sits right on the twelfth lock on the canal (swans and all) which was used to haul goods into the city in long past days. We even stayed on the boat that is tied up right at the front door for a few nights, and that was great fun. It is also available from the hotel. The staff are all very helpful and attentive. There is also a large car park.
The train station is about 100 yards down the path which will take you right into Dublin in about 15 minutes. From Dublin you can take the train anywhere. There is also a town within a 5-10 minute walk which has other pubs and restaurants if you should wish to try them, and a big Mall of shops. We will be going back this fall.
I loved being just out of town and getting the feel of blending in as many near by residents are out walking the canal path with their dogs or back and forth to the train.
I believe that we paid 120.Euros per night. The breakfast was the fanciest Irish Breakfast that I have ever seen! You will love it.
