My partner and I stayed at Trinity Capital Hotel for two nights at the beginning of a week-long tour of Ireland last week. We arrived at 10am as we had an early flight, and had planned on dropping off our luggage until we could check in later. We were very happy and amazed to find that we could check in at 10am, 4 hours earlier than the usual check in time! Also we were upgraded to a larger room in the Tara section of the hotel with two sky lights, just lovely! The hotel itself is large but comfortable, with interesting furnishings that make you enjoy your stay even more.
We were able to walk easily from the hotel to Grafton street to do some shopping and hop on a bus tour, to Temple Bar for the wax museum, and to O'Connell street for more shopping and a movie. This hotel has the perfect location! It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to the centre of downtown! The bed was very comfortable and large and we slept like babies. The bathroom was also very large with lots of counter space. We did have one minor issue during our first morning, the shower didn't drain properly, but it was fixed as soon as I reported it to the staff and was more of a minor annoyance than anything else.
We ate supper at the hotel restaurant our first night, and unfortunately the main dining area was closed for a wedding reception. However, the restaurant and bar area of the hotel are huge and span around the courtyard, so we were able to order from the same menu and still had a nice place to sit and eat. It was busy but there were still tables available, which was nice. Overall the food was good, although I found the fish & chips to be a bit on the bland side. We returned again the second night for dessert and night cap, and again the restaurant was busy with a reception. We waited a long time for our desserts, however we were doing trip planning so we didn't mind, and in the end we were given our food and drinks for free! We thought that was a nice gesture. Although the staff were busy, they were very apologetic and friendly. I would suggest that management of the restaurant look into getting more staff during events, because clearly this is a popular spot and their staff get overwhelmed because of it.
The buffet breakfast was also good with a lot of selection of Irish food and healthier food. Probably the best we had during our trip, if memory serves me correct.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel and found it to be one of the best we have stayed in to date (including some much more expensive hotels in other places). The price was perfect for our budget and the location can't be beat. We were also very appreciative of the early check in and upgrade. When I return to Dublin, I will be back!
