We began our honeymoon after a long flight at the Hampton Hotel in Dublin. The female at the front desk was very bright and cheerful which helped perk us up a little from our jetlag. She went over the normal stuff, but also helped us with bus connections which brings me to my first main point. There is no subway in Dublin so it's bus, taxi, or walk...driving a rental in Dublin would be challenging. The bus is the easiest, most cost-effective way around town but there is a downside. While on the bus, there are no digital signs or printed signs which indicate the next stop so multiple times we missed our stop. We did some bus research, but I would advise some bus route copies pre-trip. Dublin is a very walkable city, but the Hampton Hotel is about a 15 min walk North to St Stephens Green. That would be my only little issue with this hotel.
Everything else was great! The bedroom was large by European standards and the bathroom was nice. We were on the 4th floor facing the road and the room had nice big windows. Wifi included plus room has a flat screen tv and an electric fireplace which is cool. Other than a little street noise, room was very quiet for a great nights sleep. We ate in the Bar Bistro one night because we were tired and it was a pleasant surprise. Food was great! If you need a lift back to the airport, I would suggest the Dublin AirShuttle. Tickets in advance are only 8 Eu pp or 10 Eu pp day of. The stop is 20 yards from the hotel and the trip to airport was quick and easy. We took this shuttle on advice from the front desk staff of the hotel. Great stay and we would absolutely recommend!
