Stayed four nights, started each evening in the bar/restaurant, had to get wait staff attention every time you wanted something and it routinely took twenty mins to get what you asked for. Food was fine, but they really need to coach their staff on what good service means

This hotel was superb. Location to metro Dublin in walking distance. Old world charm and a great restaurant. Try the Irish stew! I bet you can't finish it. The staff was very friendly and knew where everything was and to do.
