Spacious Room

What a nice surprise to have room to stretch out at the end of a 3 week trip. The king size bed was comfy but could have has plumper pillows. The room needed a table since it had three chairs and just a small desk. The TV was tiny if that matters to you. A bonus was the small fridge. And although the shower was great, you need to use your towel and bath mat to mop the floor. Oh, the pub music is loud so ask for a room on the highest floor and on the other side, especially if you're traveling during the warm months when you'll need to open the windows. Great location close to everything - right by Christchurch Cathedral etc. The staff was friendly and efficient and we'd stay here again. Good value!

Perfectly located

The Harding Hotel could not be in a better location in the Temple Bar district. We arrived into Dublin in the morning and took the green bus hop on / hop off tour with to and from travel to Dublin city center from the airport. This allowed us to defer renting a car (and the cost of the bus was far less than a day rental plus we didn't have to navigate Dublin or pay for parking). There is a bus drop-off / pick-up location within a very short walk to the hotel and the bus driver pointed out where the bus was at. The hotel was perfectly situated right across from Christ Church. We were able to use the bus tour to orient ourselves and then we spent our evening visiting the nightlife. The room was clean and met all of our needs. We were able to see the nightlife and then in the morning we stored our luggage and continued our visit before our return to the airport to begin our driving tour of Ireland.

Use one of the combination airport - city hop on/off bus tours to get to the city center and avoid renting a car until you want to begin your driving tour of Ireland.

One Nighter

Booked for one night after arriving in Dublin by Ferry. Excellent location on edge of Temple Bar with lots of nightlife also handy to many historic places of Interest, City hall, Trinity College etc. Friendly welcome, good facilities in Hotel. Parking was on Street, some down and outs sleeping rough in doorways near Hotel.

Temple Bar is a cultural area for tourists, well worth a walk round on an evening for the street performers, especially liked "Mutefish". Prices are expensive and restaurants crowded, better value outside the Temple Bar area.

The good, the bad, the ugly

First off, the hotel is very clean and in a good location. Staff was friendly and helpful. That being said, I did not sleep the entire 4 nights we stayed here...the walls are thin, a bar sits below the hotel/in the hotel...and it is VERY noisy at night. Try The Central Hotel, which is even closer to major sites and quiet...also it was a bit cheaper.

Find something better.

Bed was clean, but the bathroom was moldy. Staff were disinterested. The Copper Alley Bistro, connected to the hotel was poor.

Temple Bar district is fun for music and dinner, but our best time was in a pub toward bottom of Cow's alley.
