I chose this place blind, not being at all familiar with Dublin. Fortunately it turned out to be within walking distance of just about everything we wanted to see.
The room was small but had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and breakfast was good. It took a good 5 minutes or so for the hot water to start in our shower (be patient or take a cold one like I did the first morning) and the pipes were rather noisy throughout the night, which isn't completely unexpected in an old building like this. It was by far the most expensive lodging we had in Ireland, but again I suppose not unexpected being in Dublin.
If you have trouble navigating stairs this might not be the place for you; we were on the top floor (4th?) and there were quite a few stairs, not the easiest if this is a problem for you. My husband and I didn't mind but my parents struggled a bit.
I would probably give this property 3 1/2 stars had that been an option...definitely better than average but not at the same level as some of those we stayed at in other places.
