We have just returned from a 3 night break in Dublin, staying at the Pembroke Townhouse.
We got from the airport to the hotel via the aircoach, which drops off about 10 minute walk from the hotel, which in good weather is fine.
The hotel is located in a nice area of Dublin, close to a few shops, pubs and restaurants (although we didn't try any of them), and it is a 15-20 minute pleasant walk to St Stephens Green/Grafton Street.
We had a standard room, which was functional, but perhaps a little tired (especially compared to some of the photos on the website). The room was very clean, with a comfy bed and good shower, which is all you really need in a city break hotel. There was no tea and coffee in the room, but you could help yourself to tea, coffee and home made biscuits in a nice lounge area.
Breakfast was excellent and filled you up for the day. We tried the omelette and full irish, and would recommend both.
There are plenty of eating/drinking places in Dublin, but we would certainly recommend Hugo's which is a restaurant on the walk from the hotel to the centre (bright blue bistro).
The little museum of Dublin is also worth a look in (again on the walk in to the centre, opposite St Stephens Green). It is worth getting there in time for a guided tour to help explain things a bit better.
