overnight stay

Check in seamless. Expensive for what we got. Room was meant to be Delux but was very basic. No bottled water in room. No shower caps, no face cloths. Only one set of towels in Bathroom had to search for other towels which were in a drawer as spare towels. Felt like the room had not been turned around correctly for next guests. Breakfast was a disaster. Note if you do not put a credit card on your room you cannot charge breakfast to your room you have to pay upfront. This was not explain upon check-in. so having queued for 20 minutes to get a table I was then told breakfast couldn't be charged to my room so I had to run back to my room get my cards and come back again. No management at breakfast very unorganised and staff rude and moody. Only consulation was when checking out I wasn't charged for breakfast. I gave my feedback to the desk clerk who apparently wasn't surprised as I wasn't the only guest who felt the service was very poor.

Great Hotel

Only stayed the one night but can't fault the hotel at all. The staff at reception were friendly and most helpful. The rooms were lovely and warm and very comfortable. There was a wide selection of food at breakfast, everything hot and tasty.

pleasantly suprised

I was impressed with the grandness of the building and the professionalism of most of the staff. Be sure to understand what you are ordering at the bar and restaurant. American versions differ! Reception staff was extremely helpful and there are bus stops that go directly to town and airport. nice little neighborhood pubs. while we were there, there were quite a few children because of the holiday season...a little too loud at times but not their usual environment. The bartender/stafff Anis was an absolute delight and great rep for the Bewleys corp.

Catch the bus outside the hotel into Dublin. Cheap fares not far to walk to Grafton St. Trinity College etc.
