my son was doing a 2 day course in dublin so i was looking for somewhere that would not break the bank. this was perfect for us. i would drop him off early in the morning and then do my own thing. i did not need a plush hotel as we were really only sleeping there. the twin room was spacious enough and immaculate. the shower was perfectly fine and i was pleased to see toiletries were supplied. the telly was small but had many channels. Plenty of storage available. there was a shared lounge for dining which was huge and again, immaculate. 2 bins for waste disposal. a big fridge and we put our milk etc on one shelf and it was not touched. A kettle with cups (tea, coffee sugar etc provided), a toaster, microwave and oven all available. We just got takeaways. When i dropped my son off at his course in the morning, i was delighted to be near glasnevin cemetery and the national botanical gardens - more highly deserving a visit and are free. This place is also near ikea. However, if you do not have a car, and are in a house far in, you might have the bones of a 1km walk in and out. The bus stop is just at the entrance making it perfect for tourists. 2 quibbles, there was a lot of ramps and i felt for my poor car hopping up and down from them. Also, the wi-fi did not work - i had seen on trip advisor that many people found this so i had brought back up in my own. Overall, perfect for this trip, safe, clean, accessible and reasonable. will return
