City center hotel with an Irish luau
The Arlington's O'Connell Bridge location sets itself apart from the pack with a unique Irish luau--a nightly three-course meal with Irish dancing show. The rooms have recently been renovated and have modern, clean lines. Tourists mix with locals at the medieval Knightsbridge Bar inside the hotel. The Knight's Bistro keeps the medieval theme alive and offers live music nearly every night. Guests find just as much entertainment outside the hotel as inside. The Arlington is right on the River Liffey and steps from the heart of Dublin nightlife.

brilliant 40th birthday.

Dublin was amazing, and the Arlington hotel was just perfect. The hotel does not have much curb appeal, however it is like Pandora's box. In side we were greeted with a warm welcoming service, and we were pleasantly surprised with how enchanting and rustic the hotel was. I recommend this hotel to anyone (probably not young families) we will most certainly be going back ☺️

Great Location, great barroom; overpriced

I was shocked to be charged an additional 30 euros per night because I added a second occupant to my double room. Seems excessive. Otherwise, the hotel was adequate, certainly not luxurious. The location (O'Connell Bridge on the River Liffey) couldn't be beat. We walked everywhere...

Dublin Weekend

Convenient hotel in the center of the city, near all but a bit outdated, no elevator, small bathroom, and my room looked into a courtyard with limited visibility of the outside world. Would probably not stay there again if I return to Dublin.

Good location, but...

The location of this hotel is great - we walked to everything with no trouble. You can also store your bag if they aren't ready to check you in. However, the bed was rock hard, there is no air conditioning, and the walls were very thin. Our room was near the vending machine and we heard every transaction. One of the nights, about 2 a.m., some VERY drunk guys ran around for about an hour on our floor, shouting and banging on doors, etc., and the staff did nothing about it.

comfortable stay

We stayed in the older part of the hotel and the room was way too small. I opened the door and tripped on too the bed!! Saying that the room was very clean, staff were very helpful and easy too talk too. The hotel is very central and we enjoyed our stay.
