The whole experience was great. The staff was helpful to the point of drawing us maps to show us how to get around the city. The room was comfy and a good size. We also enjoyed the restaurant/bar/lounge area. It was so relaxing to just sit in a comfortable chair and have someone ask us what you wanted as we...

This hotel was the last place my husband and I stayed on a 15-day trip which started in Dublin and took us to southwest Ireland. This hotel is nice, we were upgraded to a suite, which we were very happy about. The suite was very comfortable and clean. I did notice the other rooms appeared to be small, so I...

When you walk through the doors you are stepping back in time with elegance and treated as royalty. Everyone was very helpful and I loved the secure parking just around the corner. Great location to access all that Dublin offers. The rooms are a bit small but fully furnished with all that modern necessities. Great stop for your first or...

The hotel is full of character with a little fraying around the edges. There is a grand chandelier in the lobby, open fireplaces and old wooden floors. The staff are friendly and attentive. The room I stayed in was of Georgian style with high ceiling. It was of a decent size with two single beds (both perfectly comfortable). The hotel...

Nice hotel, very friendly staff. The rooms and bathrooms are a bit small, but that is to be expected in many European hotels. Clean rooms, nicely decorated. Excellent breakfast buffet, dining area is beautiful. Nice location, easy walk to shops and restaurants.

Lovely boutique hotel in perfect location, a few blocks from Temple Bar, Trinity College, shopping, exceptional restaurants (e.g., on Dawson Street), museums, buses and trains. (That said, Buswells is on a quiet street, so you miss the hubbub and madness you might find, say, in the middle of Temple Bar.) While the rooms were smaller, I thought the value/price was...
