From the airport we took the Airlink bus to the "College Green and Temple Bar" stop. Our walk from there was no more than 10 minutes and that was with a small child in the rain.
Location: 5 minute walk to Grafton Street shopping district, Dunnes grocery 2-3 minute walk, SPAR grocery (open later) 4-5 minute walk, the Famous Temple Bar 8-10 minute walk, 30 minute walk to Houston Rail Station. The pub next door (name??) is fantastic and you must stop in for at least 1 drink. Food was just ok. Atmosphere was fantastic. Metro ( out the front door, turn right, left at the next street, 1 building down on the right across the street) was a great spot for breakfast....they serve it all day if you're a late sleeper!
Staff: everyone was always helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Maeve who was an amazing asset for us. Very knowledgeable, friendly and happy to help. Her tips, pointers and suggestions made our trip much more relaxed. She treated everyone like they were old friends. Give that girl a promotion!
Rooms: we upgraded to the superior and for a family of 4 we were extremely happy with the room size. One of the largest we've found in Europe. Clean and had everything we needed. Expect noise from city traffic and pub deliveries in the morning. Nothing unbearable.
Here is why only 4 stars, not 5... The beds. So uncomfortable! The couch bed was a super thin mattress over wood. The other beds had a thicker mattress but still too hard. The shower also had very soft, low pressure. I have long hair and showering took 3 times longer.
