Checked in on a Saturday night because of it's close proximity to the Dublin airport that we were flying out of on Sunday. It was located right in the thick of things, in fact, we never had to leave the hotel. We ended up having to pay 135 euro for the last room available. Very pricey compared to what we had been paying all week. We checked into a nice large room overlooking the street so it was kind of noisy. There was a public parking garage behind the hotel that they let you park there for free by validating the ticket.
We were looking to have a good time our last night in Ireland so we asked the receptionist where to go, and she said right here. The bar next door, that's part of the hotel would be the hot spot. She wasn't lying. After a good dinner in the restaurant, we headed over to the bar. They had a live DJ and it was packed. Standing room only. At 11pm, the hotel's club, Earth, opens up and the front desk will give you free passes to get in. With all this great stuff located in the hotel, you suffer until about 2am in the rooms because they are over the bar. I could hear every song played and all the people leaving since I was just staying above them. So this hotel is very noisy on the weekends at least.
The rooms were nice though, and the included breakfast was very good. I would probably stay here again if I had to stay in Drogheda.
