Check in on arrival was a bit of a disappointment but then we were given the keys to Apartment 4 (a penthouse with views of Dublin) Fortunately the accommodation had a lift. The apartment had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a dining room, lounge and kitchen and was very clean. Oliver St. John Gogartys is in the heart of Temple Bar... More

It was a serendipitous discovery. We were wandering in the Temple Bar area and felt we needed a drink. There was nice music wafting out of Gogarty's and a table was available by the kerbside so we ventured in. It was our first evening in Dublin and we were hungry for some sea food. We ordered a crock of mussels... More

First time staying in the hostel although i'd been the bar before. Initial impressions were good we arrived early and fortunately our room was ready so checked straight in. Room was a decent size, beds comfy and the bathroom was decent. Breakfast was better than i expected and you can grab a brew anytime day and evening. Safe to say... More

I stayed for two nights in this hostel and it was my worst decision in my entire trip. I arrived there after a long flight, a bus ride and a walk...at 1 am. And I had to wake up at 6:30 to go on a tour the next day. The man at the reception (Nino) sent me to a 10... More

There is just a "normal" hostel as you are not expecting more for one. We shared a 6 beds dorms. The beds were ok and very nice to have a plug at each bed. A lot of room to put your baggage (closet and under the bed with locks). Bathroom was noting spectacular but was clean. The location is in... More

There were four of us in a room, everything was basic but the location was right in the centre of Temple Bar, so in the middle of the day you can hear Irish jigs through your bedroom which I loved. Very cheap too, 12 euros per night per person when we visited including breakfast. If you don't fancy venturing out... More

Stayed here with three friends, aged from 22-32 in a private ensuite room with 2 sets of bunk beds. The room was perfectly acceptable, the beds were clean and as comfortable as you would expect a cheap bunk bed to be, bathroom not spotless, but nothing to cry over and lockers available to put cases in under the beds, which...

I was a little anxious to stay here as I didn't know what to expect.. but I can't complain! We stayed here for 2 nights, it very small, but they've managed to get a lot of rooms in there and make the most of it. We stayed in a 10 bed dorm, didn't have any issues. Everyone has their own... More
