Great location but weak internet connection

Newer building which is well maintained except for the free in room internet connect that was frequently down. Location is behind Dublin Castle and easy walk to Trinity College or St Stephen;s Green,

November Stay in Dublin was Fabulous!

Coming from the States, we had an extremely early arrival, around 6:00 am. The individual checking us in was able to move some reservations around and we were given access to our room immediately. The rooms were clean and very modern. Having never been to Dublin before, the front desk staff was very helpful in giving us maps of the area and directions on numerous occasions. They also helped us to book a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher. Everyone was pleasant and friendly.

Excellent experience, gay friendly

We had a very good experience staying at the Radisson for 3 nights and would stay there again. Pros: Very comfortable rooms, excellent bathroom with separate glass shower and deep soaker tub. Rooms are very quiet. Hotel staff was friendly and didn't blink at giving a double bed to a gay couple. The hotel had hosted a large gay community benefit the week before. Cons: The location is slightly removed from the center of things. However, it's only about a 6-8 minute walk to both Grafton Street and the heart of Temple Bar. Also, the location meant it was much quieter. We stayed in the Brooks Hotel for one night and it was noisy--we could hear a band playing in a bar and heard people yelling at friends as they left bars until after midnight. The Radisson by contrast was very quiet.

OK

We were able to walk to St. Patrick's Cathedral and the surrounding park in addition to Christ Church Cathedral; we were also able to walk to Trinity College (Book of Kells) and St. Stephens Green in addition to Dublin Castle. We were also able to walk to many great restaurants and bars and were close to the Temple Bar area- Highly recommended lcoation!

Walkable to Most Sites and Attractions

Either a new hotel or recently refurbished. Bathroom floor was heated, truly a luxury (loved it!). Rooms were very clean and sleek. We ordered room service several times and were surprised by the quality and the price (not that expensive, relatively). The hotel room doors are quite loud when people close them - they self shut. This makes it difficult to sleep in, especially when the cleaning staff is going room to room starting from 9AM. The location is quiet, and a little removed from the hustle and bustle areas. But everything was within walking distance. 15 minutes was the furthest we had to walk to get to the Guinness brewery. Overall, very nice hotel, especially for the price. It's new, so extremely clean. Staff seemed like they were still being trained, but was decent. I would recommend this hotel.

Great location

This hotel is great! Great location, clean, modern and comfortable with large rooms, beautiful breakfast buffet and good service. Dublin is a very walkable city-and shopping, restaurants, and attractions (Dublin castle, Trinity College, etc.) and all within easy distance. The bar got noisy and busy during St Patrick's Day, but the rooms were still quiet.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Anyone visiting Dublin must go to the Irish House Party! It includes a very good 3-course meal, and traditional Irish entertainment (singing, dancing, stories) You sit family style in a lovely old hotel, and audience participation is encouraged. We met great people and had a terrific time. It's easy to find on-line and is highly recommended.
