Stayed at The Mespil for 2 nights with friends for the Leinster v Ospreys rugby game at the RDS in March. Great location for the RDS/Aviva or for City Centre (Grafton St). Both about a 15-20 minute walk. Also plenty of buses nearby if you prefer. It took us about 6 hours to walk to Grafton Street but that's cause we kept stopping in all the nice bars along the way :)
Found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Nice Breakfast, 10 Euro's if not included in your booking, nice bar area, although it does close a little too early.
Plenty of nice bars in the Baggot St/Merrion Row area, approx 5 to 10 mins walk (recommend O'Donaghues), and for coffee lovers there is a Starbucks right next door to hotel. The Baggott Street bars tend to be a couple of Euro cheaper per drink than the Temple Bar "Tourist Trap" area.
Definitely recommend this hotel, great location (assuming you don't mind a short walk), plenty of bars and restaurants nearby.
I have booked to go back to The Mespil at the end of July, this time with my wife and 2 kids.
