Located in Temple Bar, this hotel is steps from Bank of Ireland, Trinity College, and The Book of Kells. Ha' Penny Bridge and O'Connell Bridge are also within 5 minutes.
Pros: CleanlinessCons: Street noise and sarcastic security staff.
Incredible customer servicePros: I was a little hesitant on getting a hotel in Temple Bar - it's a noisy pub crawl neighborhood, but that all went away when I stepped inside. It's on the far end of Temple Bar, near O'Connel Street, but that means it's central to everything. I was able to drop off my luggage early so I could explore Dublin for the day. I also got upgraded from a single room to a double with no extra charge. Room was quiet - during the day you could occasionally here slot machines outside the window, but I can't complain. Never heard the bar crowd. Great facilities, never got to check out the pool or breakfast but I'm sure they're both wonderful. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Dublin, for either business or leisure.
Nice stay and friendly staffPros: The staff was friendly and had nice scones and tea in the lobby. Cons: The wake up call was a little late, so set a back up alarm just in case.
