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.

Unbeatable location for the price

Hotel is in a brilliant location, temple bar being only a 5 minute walk away aswell as many other places of interest such as grafton street and o'Connell street being very close. Staff here were very helpful, allowing us to check in to our room early and also storing our bags on checkout unitl we left that evening. The rooms were clean and a good size, only drawback was that we booked for a double bed but recieved 2 single ones pushed together.

Absolutely Fantastic Hotel

Hotel is just off O'Connell Street, it's very close to Temple Bar/ St Stephen's Green/ etc so a perfect location. Large room was spotless and bed was massive and incredibly comfortable. Staff couldn't do enough for us, very friendly and knowledgeable of Dublin venues and what's happening. Buffet style all you can eat breakfast is a bargain at only 10 euro a head, you won't be disappointed. We're already looking forward to our next trip to Dublin in March and will definitely be booking Arlington Hotel O'Connell Bridge again.

All you need

Loved it. Fabulous value. Booked the dinner & show which was wonderful! Everyone was clapping & cheering & it really put you in holiday mode. I would definately recommend the hop-on hop-off Dublin bus as it picked you up at the airport & also did the return run. It then does tours with 24 stops all around Dublin & picks up & drops off right outside the hotel. I recommend considering booking breakfast as it is well worth it & very good value.

Fantastic location in Dublin

We had a wonderful time during our six day stay at the Arlington Hotel. The hotel's perfect location, the friendly staff and the awesome entertainment in their bar are positives that far outweigh the one disadvantage of noise due to the nightly entertainment in the bar. I would suggest requesting a room as far away from the bar as possible and/or taking a white noise maker to mask the music. We had the latter and it worked just fine. I highly recommend the Arlington if you visit Dublin. It's a great bargain.

make reservations as early as possible for the Irish dancers and dinner show. Ask for the closest table to the stage.

Great Spot on the River Liffey across from Temple Bar

From arrival to departure, the friendly staff was amazing. Cheers to Kenny, Gillian and Ireena! Although we didn't go for one reason or another on the 2 nights we stayed, the Irish dancing is on every night at 9, apparently it's a must see. While using my laptop in the lobby (full wifi coming soon), I did hear the hoots, hollers and foot stomping of the crowd and performers in the very large bar area, part of which also serves as a restaurant for breakfast. If you're including Britain on your trip, remember that while Ireland uses the Euro, Northern Ireland is part of Britain and still uses the pound.

Leo Burdock's Fish and Chips is a must. Right in the heart of Temple Bar, the list on the wall of famous visitors includes people from every genre.
