Great location, comfortable and affordable!

We had a great week long stay here. It really is a perfect location, we walked to all the major sights in the city and the restaurants and bars are right outside the door. The rooms are small,but cozy with a nice comfortable bed. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Dinner at the restaurant was very good in a nice quiet setting :) It does get noisy on friday and saturdays, but the location and price definitely outweighed the noise. Also, there is a grocery store right across the street which was convenient to pick up snacks and drinks for the room. Thanks temple bar hotel, I'd recommend it to all family and friends traveling to Dublin!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

On the Liffey River is a excellent coffee stand, it is right over the O' Connell St. Bridge, less than a five minute walk from the hotel. We went here every morning and had great tables and chairs with an awesome view of the city.

EXPERIENCE perfect.

Hotel with perfect location, attentive and helpful staff. A huge bar with live music every day. The Hard Rock Cafe is right next door and the whole party is concentrated in the same street. Bank, transportation, shopping just around the corner. Excellent experienee.

Perfect for tourists

If you're a tourist, this is the place to go. The hotel is in the Temple Bar district of town, close to a lot of the tourist attractions. Almost everything is within walking distance. The hotel doesn't have its own parking, but there is a parking garage across the street for about 30 euro for 24 hours or 9 euro overnight (6pm-9am). The staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good, but a bit spendy. There were better options for breakfast nearby. There are a good amount of bars and clubs nearby as well, so it gets noisy at night, but it wasn't too bad on the top floor with the window closed. Overall, it was a good stay at a good hotel.

Friendly & Helpful Staff all the time!!

We went to Dublin for 3 nights and got an amazing deal at Temple Bar Hotel, which is in the center of everything! Short walk to bus & train stations, right on the temple bar strip, and right next to Trinity College. The staff was helpful all the time! Any questions we had about the area or nearby attractions were answered and they showed us exactly where everything was on the maps they provided. Had an excellent experience here and would definitely stay here again when we return!! :)

Perfect, would recommend

This hotel was perfect for our first stay in Dublin. It was easy to get too from the airport, just catch one of the shuttle buses and get off at trinity college (about 30-35 mins). The Hotel is about as central as you could possibly wish for and surrounded by bars and places to eat, as well as a tesco metro opposite if you want to grab something quick. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable.

It would have worked out cheaper for us if we had purchased a dublin pass. it allows free entrance into 33 attractions. google it, or look on the visit dublin site.
