The Ardmore Experience

We stayed on the 5th.floor the room was constantly hot although the heating was not on, opening the windows increased the heavily used main road vehicle noise, a minor moan as the main road provided bus stops just outside the hotel for the city centre to and from. All staff members friendly and helpful.

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.

Ireland trip

Hotel was great. Quiet clean rooms. No alarm clock though had to do wake up calls every morning. Buses are very convenient, you just need to learn the schedule and drop off points.

Short Business Trip

Staff were decent in helping to answer query. It is also good for backpackers or business trippers who want to discover Dublin a little before or after their work. It is slightly inconvenient in terms of buses (2.15 or 2.40 euros each way) but that is to be expected as you want a hotel that is just as good as the ones in town but for a cheaper price (for the nights that your company do not expense for)

Inexpensive and near to city centre

It's in a good location with a bus stop right outside the hotel that will take you right into the centre of Dublin. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The bar food was not very nice. I was told at reception that guests were entitled to a 15% discount if they ate in the bar but this was not the case and the bar staff were not very helpful. Overall my experience was good and the hotel is value for money but I would not recommend eating at the hotel.

Great overall

clean, spacious room with great beds, shower and ameanities. Great food the one evening we ate at the hotel, good value too. Bus across the road took 12 min's to get into centre only E2.60 pp. Only thing I could fault - no air conditioning or ATM! As it was the height of summer we suffered somewhat from the heat without fans...

Nice hotel

The hotel is really nice, decent sized room, well presented and clean. Had a bit of trouble finding it from the airport as nobdody seemed to know where it was. All in all would stay here again! We got a 3 day freedom ticket for the bus (26euros) which includes the sightseeing tour - well worth it. Also the National Leprachaun Museum if you're feeling up for a laugh.
