“Is this Dublin's best kept secret?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2006

This place deserves all the credit it's getting - and some. Delightful, elegant and spacious rooms which are spotlessly clean obviously help, but so do the great staff. You can sense they enjoy working there and there's a real team spirit. It's great value, too, at around eighty quid a night. The location is a bit of a trek in to town, but for such genuine hospitality and such lovely rooms I don't think you should care too much if you're south of 50 years old.

A top gaff which will get my custom again in the future.

  • Liked — Cleanliness, spaciousness, great staff
  • Disliked — Location
  • Tips/Secrets — There's a great chippy on the corner of Fitzgibbon Street and the North Circular Rd if you get the munchies on the way home..

As others have said, this is a very nice, new hotel. At 120 Euro/night or so, it seems a more than fair bargain.

We walked on a Friday night in July from the hotel to Temple Bar and the area around Dublin Castle. The walk takes about 20 to 30 minutes. The first 10 minutes is through a tatty neighborhood that is fairly littered and dirty, but I saw nothing that leads me to think it dangerous. After that, it's a nice jaunt down McConnel street to the Liffey and to the more interesting areas.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is first rate. I thought the location was bad because it is in a residential area but the hotel and staff make up for it.

Just returned from Dublin after a 2 night stay with my wife at Jury's Croke Park. This hotel really does offer exceptional service and great value for money. The decor is simple and contemporary with a few touches that really lift the overall design, namely the bar and reception area. The rooms are clean, spacious and again nicely decorated.

As stated in previous posts the hotel is not right in the heart of the city but is only a 15/20 minute walk (6/7 euro cab ride) away, and this suited us perfectly. (Airport 15mins under 20 euros)

All the staff we encountered were very polite and helpful from the consierge to the waiting and housekeeping staff and this is what really made the difference during our stay.

The one slightly negative point I would make is to make sure you check what events are taking place at the Croke Park stadium, as a number of cabbies told me that roads in the area are a nightmare on match days.

I stayed at this hotel when it had only been open a couple of days! Wow it's very nice although our flat screen huge television didn't work we had come to town to see 50 cent in concert at the Point! It was beautiful inside the room fantastic and not all that expensive - would HIGHLY recommend and wouldn't hesitate in going back!
