The receptionist could not have been more helpful. We were a bit early but he got us sorted straight away with a room. It was on the top floor. It's a bit hard for those with a suit case but we were fine. The view was lovely, we could see the river flow right past our window. The room was...

Great location, comfortable rooms though they aren't huge they do the job! Walls are quiet thin and also hoovers going off from around 9:30 or so but it wasn't the worst and we quiet enjoyed our stay. Would have given it 4/5 stars but unfortunately the cleaners walked in to our room without knocking an hour and a half before...

The hotel is well located within walking distance of many attractions, and near the bus and a Redline tram (LUAS) stop. A very compact hotel. Rooms are VERY compact ... but are clean and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful. The breakfasts are great; cooked to order and as much as you can eat. The rooms facing the road...

It's in a great location, right on the river and in the centre of town, walking distance from everything. However, it was so small, you can't really move around in your room, the bathroom and shower are even smaller. But what can you expect in the middle of Dublin! Breakfast was great!

This is a very nice hostel near the center of Dublin, Ireland. It is close to everything and just a few steps from Temple Bar region. The hostel is in front of Liffey River, so the view is very nice. On the other side of the river you can see a monument built in honor of the Viking saga. People...

Even though we only stayed for one night, room was pokey and out dated. Room was on a code system rather than a key which didn't seem particularly safe and was apprehensive about leaving valuables in the room. For €100 a night we expected more. Fortunately we didn't have time for breakfast as we had to be at the airport...

Nice little B&B on the river Liffey, in a good location. Rooms were cosy, as soon as we opened our room door it smelt of cigarettes and alcohol though. Kettle in the room, bathroom tiny, TV with a selection of channels. Bed was comfy. Rooms were quiet, although every floor board squeaks so you could hear anyone walking up and...
