Even after reading all the positive reviews we were surprised how nice the people, room and the food was. It would be hard to beat the value here. Easy walking distance to attractions and shopping. Front desk was very at check in and offered suggestions for walking tour.

We had a long day of driving and it was great to pull into an underground locked garage and walk into the lobby directly. Excellent restaurant serving local ingredients (we had pork and fish). Rally nice friendly Welsh (!) bar-man and good local brews on tap.... More

I was really impressed by the value that this hotel offered, the food was incredible, the location was within walking distance of many major tourist attractions. I am not sure you wouldn't stay here? The front desk was very helpful in providing a city map and helping us get oriented to where things were and how to get around.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple nights. This was one of the nicest hotels we stayed at while in Ireland. The rooms were large and very modern. The hotel was great as was the staff. It is walking distance to almost anything you could do there. I would stay there again if I return.
