At first I thought its slightly off the beaten path (in the financial district near the convention center north of the river and all the city centre activity) was a sore disadvantage, but ultimately The Clarion IFSC was a great match for us. From the airport, it is the 3rd stop on the Airlink 747 bus and very walkable with luggage from there (even after a long day of traveling) . Also, the city center is absolutely packed with tourists and locals and we enjoyed heading back to the sanity of the financial district where we could stroll home in peace once across the river at O'Connell Street far from the mosh pit of the city. It's not exactly convenient enough to allow you to come back home and rest during the day without considerable effort. It was close to the the Paddywagon Bus Station on lower Gardiner for our day tour, and likewise not far from the bus stop on Ashton Quay where we picked up a ride to Kilmainhaim jail, our only two serious jaunts that were farther afield. The hotel restaurant, Kudo's, serves later than most do, so the one time we got caught off guard late at night and starving, we were served without complaint. There are not otherwise a lot of restaurants nearby (though you should check out Ely's not far away).
Our room was pleasantly roomy after my wee but modern accommodations in France. This felt downright luxuriously spacious by comparison. They had a kettle, and even better, a small fridge for our cokes and snacks. It felt generous, modern, reasonably convenient and clean.
