This hotel is breathtaking! The rooms are gorgeous. The beds are comfortable. The amenities are great. The staff is extremely helpful. The location is just a 8 minute walk to the center of shopping, food, and night life! The bus stop from Dublin airport is right across the street. I will definitely be staying at this hotel again!
