Had a great stay at the metropole. As a rennovated hotel, it has a bit of character, and the friendly staff was definitely a highlight, which really matters when you're travelling solo. They're happy to make recommendations on which pubs to go to (and which to avoid!). Regular backpackers might find that typical hostel features- like a common kitchen- are absent, but the free towels were much appreciated, since I'm usually too stingy on luggage space to pack my own. Oh, and a delicious Irish stew at the bar is always a plus!
