fab stay

Had a fab stay. Staff were lovely. Had everything we needed. Only thing is we stayed at the hotel for 4 days and it would have been nice if our towels were changed everyday. Everything else was lovely.

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.

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!

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.

Handy for the City centre

Good, clean hotel right on the bus route to the City. Room was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again. Could perhaps think about turning the heating down though.
