I highly recommend the Eliza Lodge's penthouse rooms. My corner room had floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony affording gorgeous views up and down the Liffey. I was amazed, given the reasonable price. The room was not that big or fancy, but the view and the convenient location more than made up for that. When you do book a room and arrive in Dublin, be sure to know the address--my taxi driver hadn't heard of the hotel!
