We wanted to get away for a long weekend, and we chose Dublin. Abbey Court has the perfect location. We took the bus from the airport to Abbey Court, it was maybe 6 Euro or so. The rooms aren't 5 star hotel rooms, but that wasn't what we expected.
We were out walking around all day and knew we didn't want to spend too much money on a hotel that we were only going to sleep in. The room was pretty small, but definitely bearable. The bathroom was small as well, but it was clean. The location trumps the size of the bedroom and bathroom.
When I was in Florence last year, I learned to bring earplugs wherever I go. I needed them in Florence, NYC and Dublin. Since this is a hostel, there were some people being loud and running up and down the hall. I grabbed my earplugs and slept like a baby. I don't have a problem with people being loud and the rooms being small. Basically, I'm there to see Dublin, not hang out in a hotel room. We were literally only there to sleep. It was not worth it to us to pay a lot more and have a normal hotel room, probably in a much more inconvenient location!
We booked our 2nd vacation to Dublin at Abbey Court. This time we will be there for St. Patty's Day 2009. We are so excited because Abbey Court is a hop, skip, and a jump away from all of the action!
