Very good hotel, modern clean and tidy. Rooms were pretty big and well laid out. Breakfast very good. Best thing about it is the convenience if taking the bus to / from airport, there are 2 services that stop right outside so it is as easy as you like. Also the place next door

This place is a no go zone if you're in town for business. The internet was so slow I couldn't do any work and had to eventually tether on my mobile data. Work desk was ridiculously small as well and worst part is being woken up at 3am every morning by the parties exiting the

My wife and I booked a last minute holiday to Dublin, considering the time of year the rates and location of the Holiday Inn Express were very appealing. Having stayed in many Holiday Inn's I have always been happy with their level of service however as this was my first stay

Dublin to Galway trains operate from Heuston station. Short taxi ride from holiday inn or you can hop on a LUAS Tram, also nearby that goes directly into Heuston. Book your tickets online in advance for better price. There are direct coaches to Galway from the Quays, 5/10 minutes walk from the hotel and much cheaper.

Hi. What number bus do we get from Dublin airport to the hotel please?
If you go past the air link buses and through the next part of the terminal there’s the public bus area. You get the number 16 for €3.30 and it goes to o’connell Street right outside the hotel. Download the Dublin bus app and you can see/follow the route

I had the same concern. Finding parking in Dublin is not too easy. I decided to take the bus to the hotel, then go back to the Airport to pick up a rental before touring Ireland. The hotel charges for parking if I remember correctly, and it doesn't come cheap.

"Rooms at the rear would be quieter."
"Rooms x14 and above so you are not overlooking the Living Romm Beer Garden"
"We stayed in Room 408. I'd avoid rooms on this side is possible due to a noisey outdoor pub that gets loud at night."
"Rooms to the front and south side have street views."
"Room 321 provides an outside view and you can request a room with an outside view with no issues."
