Having stayed at this on numerous occasion with work. This was my first choice to stay with my partner for weekend break.
One of the best things about this hotel is it's location. Firstly, it is only two minutes away from Grafton Street, where you'll find all of the shops. About ten minutes away is the Temple Bar area, with all it's pubs and restaurants......although beware it does get extremely busy.
The hotel staff were excellent and very helpful. We arrived in the morning, but were allowed to check into our room straight away and did not have to wait until the afternoon. Our room was clean, well presented and a fair size.
The hotel is connected to the "Break for the border" bar which is a lively place in the evening. Split on several levels there is a restaurant upstairs. We only ate breakfast there, which was excellent, with a wide variety of choices available.
We never had any problems with the noise from the bar in the evening, although we were on the 3rd floor, so that 's maybe why.
Overall this is good quality hotel and I would definately stay here again.
A few recommendations for Dublin: Visit the Guinness Warehouse, but take a taxi as it's a bit of a walk from the centre.
We did a tour of the city in a WWII amphibious dukv (Duck). This is a great way to see the city and it even goes for a tour in the harbour.
Eddie Rockets (American Diner) located off Grafton Street is a great place to have a bite to eat; it's like stepping back to the 50's with mini duke boxes at each table.
Captian America's (America Food) - The only restaurant in Grafton Street, great food and atomsphere
Dublin is a great place to visit, and everyone is very welcoming, and somewhere I never tire of visiting
