  • 5 star ratingNo more U2... Great spot. Easy check in. Upgraded to a balcony room. GREAT BED and pillows!!!! Best of our three week tour of the Emerald Island. Only stayed one night before our departure, but would certainly recommend for a longer stay. Great feel. Great service. Well appointed.


    5 star ratingRecommend Polite and efficient staff. Great location for central Dublin. Comfortable, clean room with a luxurious feel - lots of solid wood and lovely fabrics. Lovely carpentry. Not much of a view but I want expecting one.

    Would definitely use again.

  • 5 star ratingAbsolutely outstanding! Not only were we permitted to check in three hours early (at no additional cost), we were given a free-upgrade to a suite.

    The staff were beyond helpful, the room was phenomenal, and the location brilliant.

    Thank you so much for having us,



    5 star ratingGreat hotel! Great hotel overall, the room was cozy and even though our room only had a view of the buildings behind it, it was still nice to have a small balcony to get some fresh air. Also, the front desk staff was very helpful! More


    5 star ratingWonderful Stay Love this beautiful, understated and tasteful hotel on the river in Dublin. We felt so at home and relaxed. The didn’t even mind our muddy boots after we returned from a day in the country. Being in Temple Bar you can hear all the music and laughter which we loved.
