We booked this hotel through a special deal with Travelzoo, and it was worth EVERY penny. As part of the deal we were upgraded to a room with a view - which was fantastic. We were on the fourth floor and looking out across the city so the view was outstanding. Also included was the buffet breakfast...fantastic! Everything you could possibly ask for was included. We filled up sufficiently so we grabbed some fruit and some muffins from the buffet to keep us going through the day. The rooms were excellent, very spacious and the en suite bathroom was amazing - included a large shower as well as a bath/shower suite. Staff were incredibly quick at cleaning the rooms - it was cleaned as we attended breakfast on the first day. The hotel is wonderfully situated. From the airport, we got the Airlink bus (booked through the Dublin Bus website @ 6 euro each) to the last stop at Heuston station. If you leave the station through the exit beyond platform two, turn right and walk to the end of the road, turn left and you will approach the hotel - a 10 minute walk. Directly opposite the hotel is the Kilmainham Goal (apparently a brilliant tour but we didn't book ahead so were unable to go in - ENSURE YOU BOOK THIS IN ADVANCE). Because of the close proximity of the Goal there was a bus stop immediately outside of the hotel for the tour buses (we also booked this via the Dublin bus website as you receive an online discount - normally 18 euro each, we bought tickets for 15 euro each). In addition the Guinness storehouse is only a 10 minute walk away from the hotel and is VERY easy to get to. Reception staff were excellent and very helpful. If you need to book a taxi to the airport, book through reception as they have a special 25 euro deal with a taxi firm, otherwise it could be up to 30 euro. In terms of city centre, we arranged a taxi into town on a Saturday night and it was 8 euro.
