I had booked a single and it was small, the bed was pushed up against one side. there was little space to put your toiletries in the bathroom. They do have larger rooms as I asked Rosa at reception. Have a look at Jury’s Hotel too. Hotel prices in Ireland are cheaper on a Sunday night so this may influence the planning of your stay.

"Last room we had was on top floor lots of noise from fans on roof below."
"Metropole Hotel The Second floor is the quietest"
"Very good end room on second floor. The room was very warm when we arrived, but we were able to turn heat down to a comfortable level."
