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.

Good value

Hotel was OK for the price. I did not like that it was too far from airport (16km was on taximeter receipt), so we paid 23 and 24 euros for transfers. When you look at map it seems that hotel is in between airport and city center, but when you drive with taxi you can see that is not so.

Volcanic Ash non-stay!!

I would love to let everyone know what happened to me-my trip was canceled due to the volcanic ash. I was beyond disappointed because this was to be my dream trip-I've wanted to go to Ireland since I was a child-my grandmother was born and raised there. I hadn't purchased trip insurance because I was going no matter what. The wonderful management at this hotel gave me a full refund-and within a few days. It's been 3 weeks and I'm still waiting on the airline. Anyway-I will make this trip again and I won't stay anywhere but the Ardmore-I've told everyone I know and hopefully more people will book with this hotel. (I filled in all the categories because it wouldn't let me submit unless I did-however we don't know since we didn't stay.)

Very nice but NOISY!

Very nice hotel BUT I booked based off a map on another web site showing me the location was right behind Trinity College - The map was wrong and the hotel is a 25 minutes bus ride from the city center! Beautiful well maintained clean hotel with super friendly staff and a lively bar, but on a very busy road and all family rooms are at the front - could not sleep at all due to the traffic noise! Ask for a room at the back if you are booking doubles. For the price, the jaunt into town on the bus wasn't that bad...but be warned some of the maps out there are wrong!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy a Rambler pass on the buses - they cover the trip to and from the airport as well as all buses within the city - you will need it! especially if staying out of the city center!

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.
