Our First time in Dublin. I can't say enough about Asta - she was so helpful and friendly during my stay. I arrived early from an overnight flight and she did everything she could to make me comfortable. The location is great. We had a twin room which was perfect for our needs.

This is a tired, shabby hotel in which nothing quite works properly. My first room (510) had a horribly scratched bath/shower with a wonky loo seat. I asked to be moved and was -the next one was better though the shower control know fell off. The TVs looks about 10 years old (with a poor range of channels) and are...

We stayed here on a Thursday night at the start of a long weekend in Dublin. We were only in the hotel for one night, but it did the job.

Central hotels can be noisy but we may as well have been in a room on the ground floor with the windows wide open.

Had a one night B&B stay at the Mont Clare for a weekend break with a friend.

Nice hotel, made better by its location. It's really close to the highlights of Dublin including Trinity College, Grafton St, etc. Only downside is if you have a street facing room it's a bit loud, recommend bringing earplugs.

The location of the hotel is great. It is within walking distance of the city centre and all the fantastic sights Dublin has to offer.
