Great place to stay! Especially on St. Patty's Day!

This hotel was very nice. They had plenty of outlets in the room and great space to get ready for two girls going out on St. Patty's Day. The hotel bar was great for live music and less expensive pints of Guinness then we spent out in Dublin. Bus station right across the street to head into town for less than 3 euro and they had our cars inside a locked underground gate area. Felt very safe! Great place and great staff very helpful in getting around!

Nice location between aurport and city center

This hotel was perfect for the price, its located pretty mych right between city center and the airport. Its a short drive to all the fun stuff. Staff was very helpful and room was clean. My only complaint was the water pressure in the shower, not sure if thats just how most places are around here, our last hotel(kellys) had weak water preadure too! Its like a slight drizzle of water which is annoying after 10 hrs of flying on airplanes. Besides that I really enjoyed our stay at the ardmore. I would def recomend.

Perfect!

Hotel staff was very accomodating. We emailed ahead about an early check in. When we arrived, they had a room ready for us, which was greatly appreciated for a short rest after an eight hour flight. Also, loved the use and convenience of the city bus stops in front of hotel. Never drive yourself in the city of Dublin. Rent the car on your way out of the city. Also handy to a large grocery store for snack, etc. We are glad we didn't stay in the expensive, busy, and loud city centre.

Great if you want a decent hotel room

If you travel to Dublin on business you can't beat the Ardmore. Free parking and wifi as well as clean rooms. There is also a bar and restaurant on the first floor. The staff are all very helpful. The cab fare to downtown is 12-15 euros depending on the part of downtown. Given the price of Temple Bar hotels and the quality- the Ardmore is paradise for the business traveler.

Very good for business trip or holiday

Provided us with a good base for our Dublin holiday. 15 minute bus ride from city centre. Hotel could have given more info on bus times (espec. Sunday times). Overall, excellent hotel.

Noisy on side of busy street

We were given a room on the front of the hotel which faces a busy street. Since there is no A/C, then we must leave the window open so noise is a problem. I requested they move us to the rear of the hotel. My request was honored and noise on the other side of the hotel wasn't a problem.

Good Location

I was disappointed that I did not receive the free breakfast like most of the guest. The selection on the breakfast bar was not worth the $14.00 that they charged.
