If you are going to Lansdowne Road this is a perfect hotel - I stayed here in September for a concert and it is literally 5 mins from the stadium. If you are going to the City Centre it is a little way - about 15 mins walk but the Dart Station is across the road and can get you there in about 5 mins. Room was very comfortable and clean. Good quality HD TV - albeit limited channels in Ireland - but at least could get UK Terrestrial channels. Free internet in hotels means 256k connection with limitations on what you can access. Not here - the free internet is fast and the connected TV lets you access your Netflix account. Breakfast very good selection to keep you going for the day.
IF you are staying for a few days and want to do something different - instead of taking the Dart to the City go the other way to Bray - a lovely seaside town - and the trip itself has spectacular views.
