  • 5 star ratingExcellent as always A bit of cultural tranquility in the heart of Dublin with excellent staff and an amazing restaurant. The perfect venue to welcome customers to our product launch; and to wine and dine them in style. This is at least our 4th visit and we will return!

    4 star ratingGreat Location The hotel was clean. Rooms were large. Front desk was very helpful. No AC which was only a problem because there was lots of noise from restaurants/bars below so we had to keep the windows closed. Location couldn't be beat. More


    4 star ratingA quayside room with a view The hotel staff was lovely, the room was comfortable & the location was great for touring around the city. The bar & restaurant weren’t to our taste, but when in Temple Bar, there are plenty of choices within spitting distance, so found something quick :)

    5 star ratingCosy and friendly very good location, in the heart of temple bar, yet quiet, very friendly staff, perfect beds & service
    only downturn: bathtub curtain - a bit outdated
    the bar is nice, but at least before dinner not crowded
