“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Spent three nights at Harrington Hall. A charming, nicely appointed hotel. Breakfast was very good. The only downside: Same as their sister hotel, Harcourt: Internet. Once this is fully available, this will become one of the greatest hidden secrets in Dublin. Staff very helpful and available for assistance. While the hotel is across the way from some lively nightclubs on Harcourt, a room on the backside of the building keeps this from being an issue. Look forward to returning!

Room Tip: ask for room on backside of hotel

Lovely old hotel near the city center. We were able to easily walk to many locations. The staff was so helpful getting dinner and show reservations, taxis and driving directions. We really enjoyed our short stay.

Room Tip: Request a back room on the weekend, nightclubs downstairs across the street are noisy late at night.

This hotel is on a busy street so be sure to get a room at the back. Clean, tidy, the breakfast is ok. Parking is limited so let them know if you plan to park there. The location is such that you can walk almost everywhere in the city centre. 7-10. minutes walk from Grafton Street. Location is everything.

Room Tip: Deluxe room at the back away from the street so noise at night is not a factor, trams run on the str...

My travel plans changed last minute and I arrived several hours before the allotted check-in. At first this appeared to cause a problem because the room wasn't ready which didn't bother me as long as I could stow my luggage and stretch my legs. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they worked it so I could have a room earlier than planned - helpful. Other staff I met were also pleasant and obliging.
The room was clean, sufficiently spacious and adequately equipped. It wasn't luxurious, perhaps slightly dated but it did the job. So I have no complaints. The breakfast was fine, cereals on the side and hot food to order. Again no problem with this because I wasn't paying a premium price.
Some other residents said their sleep was interrupted by noise at night outside, I didn't have that problem but my room was at the rear.
This hotel has more of a feel of a large guest house than a hotel which was fine. It was good value and centrally located - not fancy and probably not a choice for a "special" occasion, but for the price was fine for a quick stop.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the rear - less chance of being woken at night by people outside.

This is a lovely little hotel. We stayed in a twin room which was roomy enough with a good sized bathroom. The location is a 5 min walk to Stephens Green and another couple of mins to Grafton Street so lots of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. The service was great at the hotel, lovely staff. We had breakfast the next morning in the dining room. There isn't a buffet for hot food but you order from a menu and it's brought to you. We had the full Irish which was spot on.
If you book a room here make sure to ask for one at the back of the hotel as across the road from the front is a night club (Copper Face Jacks) which gets very loud, especially at closing time (around 3.30am).

Room Tip: As above, rooms at the back of the hotel are a must. Front gets very noisy. Also the Luas passes by...

Thoroughly recommend this hotel, very well situated to walk into central Dublin and reasonably priced rooms. The staff were very helpful, recommend to ask for a room at the back as can get quite noisy at the front of the hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back to avoid noise

This is a nice old style hotel. Well furnished and very clean. Staff very helpful. Great location for sightseeing. The only downside is the excessive noise from all the clubs and late pubs in the area.
