This is my first review although I have used Tripadvisor quite widely in the past both in Ireland and abroad. My reasons for completing this review is that I have found the perfect spot in Dublin in terms of value, comfort and location. Starting at the end, the location is perfect being alongside literally Trinity College and near Georges Dock. It is very short walking distance from the main shopping areas around Grafton Street. The Lombard is about halfway (10 mins walk) between Temple Bar (the main night time spot) and the main concert venues (RDS, Aviva and Royal Canal Theatre).
Normally I would stay in a hotel when in Dublin especially in the last few years when the price per room has dropped so much. However a few months ago I was stuck, big concert and all my usual spots were booked. I was passing the lombard pub and saw a vacancy sign. Not expecting much i booked in but I got some shock (all good).
The rooms are very modern, i would think they have being only renovated in the last couple of years. Nice dark wood floors, flat screen tvs and modern power rain type showers. No baths but once you see the showers you will want nothing else.
There is no reception, you check in at the bar, they serbve food from about 10am to 10pm and serve drinks up to about midnight, later some nights. It is a good traditional irish pub.
The rooms have their own acess and the freedom to come and go as you please.
Its like having a topclass private apartment with a bar underneath. The staff are friendly and rooms are spotless.
All told, I can not recommend it highly enough. It suits, young people looking for a cool modern place to stay, it suits families looking for big rooms at reasonable cost and it suits the business man who is looking for a nice quiet clean room at a very low cost. It does not suit someone looking for a hotel with reception, pool, room service, gym etc...
