We arrived before 10 am and the extremely helpful receptionist changed our rooms so we could check-in immediately. Large room, comfortable bed, not noisy as some reports although one night we did hear a passing group at 1am. Breakfast was great value at €5, library bar made a nice change from the bars with constant music. The location is wonderful,... More

We stayed her on the last night of our honeymoon in April 2016. We thought it was a great location, close to everything we wanted to do in Dublin and easily accessible. my one complaint would be that it was difficult to find parking. But we knew that going into it, that parking wouldn't be easy. We had a wonderful... More

This is a quant old hotel. It is located centrally and is in walking distance to most everything to see and do in the center of Dublin. We had a very different room. It was large with a comfy bed and lots of room to move. The strange part was the bathroom (see photos). It was very unique. For one... More

We just spent two nights here recently at the start of a family vacation in Ireland. The location is perfect if you plan to do a lot of sight seeing in Dublin. Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Christ Church, and the Temple Bar area are all within easy walking distance. The surrounding blocks are also home to many Pubs, restaurants, and... More

Great location fantastic staff easy to find. My husband and I stay there on a Friday night or last night in Ireland and we were able to travel around the area including Temple bar area and Trinity College. The breakfast was perfect would recommend to everyone.

Nice hotel/ good location/ pleasant staff/ only down side is its very noise in the street at night- loud music & revellers in nearby bars.. Windows are not soundproof- they ate old and thin ie: sleepless nights until partygoers go home! This is the only down side- however is very important
