Nice hotel, good location.

Hotel was very nice, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Only small complaint was that water pressure in the room was pretty low, though this may be a city regulation.

Awesome hotel

Breakfast spread is wonderful and contains a full hot Irish, pastries, fresh fruit with a pot of tea or coffee. Rooms are clean and spacious with a restraunt guide that gives you the menus for several surrounding restraunts. Easy walking distance to EVERYTHING in the city. Cab fare to airport a reasonable 25 euro. Wonderful stay!

The Ginger Man pub right around the corner. Full bar, super good food (and very generous portions) and chatty bartenders who will tell you the best to see in Dublin and what to skip over.

Lovely Hotel in good Area

The hotel was about a 10 minute walk from the main street and in a quiet square. The rooms at the front of the hotel faced the road and the ones at the back face the back of other hotels, so if you're looking for rooms with a view this isnt the hotel for you! However, the hotel was fab, clean rooms, friendly staff, great location as it was close enough to the centre to walk but not so close that you heard all the party goers!

Great staff!

The staff is very friendly and helpful! Unfortunately we had a flat tire on our rental car about 5 minutes into our drive to our hotel. After we walked to our hotel the front desk manager, Kris, helped us find a tire iron and get on our way. Our stay was wonderful too, very nice place.

Great stay!

The room was small yet very cozy and beautiful. It was close to quite a few restaurants and a shirt walk from Suffok St. I would happily stay there again.

Perfect For A Central Dublin Bed

We knew we were not getting a five start hotel and were fine with that. What we wanted was a great location within walking distance to many of the Dublin sites and that is exactly what we got. The best part about this hotel is that it is in a quiet part of the city center. The hotel is close to Trinity, St Stephens Green, Temple Bar and the Dart as well, which made getting out of the city on day trips ideal. While the Hotel will not impress you, it was clean and the staff was friendly and always around. This hotel is a great value!

Try to catch the DART to Skerries, which is about 30 mins North of Dublin. Trains leave about every 2 hours from Dublin. Skerries is a seaside town with beautiful beaches and great harbor restaurants.
