We went there from 11th to 14th March. Very good hotel, ideally placed near O’Connell Street. The rooms were very good. Breakfast was delicious. We ate one evening in the hotel restaurant, the food was outstanding. Very reasonably priced as well.

Dear Christopher H, Thank you for reaching out to us. The taxi usually adds on one euro extra per passenger. So the fare is about 25€ and the total should not be more than 30,00 € with four passengers. Kind regards, Zoran
