Had a great time in Dublin in February 2012. First visit, wife found hotel on internet and it was good price (99euros a night). Got lucky and a helpful guy at the airport told us how to get to the hotel using a city bus. Wife told me it was across from a park, it isn't quite a park so much as a GIANT soccer stadium. If you are going to some type of event at this stadium it would be the closest possible place you could stay. If your there to see the city, it is about a ten euro taxi ride from temple bar/anywhere else in the tourist area. No direct bus or tram lines we could find to get into the city, so it was kind of out of the way for us. when we checked in they offered us the 10 euro per person free breakfast, which turned out to be worth it, as it comes with access to free bottled water and a nice lounge area. Also got a free drink at their very nice hotel bar for each night of visit. I recommend this place if you are going to any event in the stadium, otherwise save the taxi fare and stay in the city.
