This was our first visit to Ireland. Wasn’t sure what to expect. Everything was spotless Paloma at the front desk was awesome. Great food, great location. It is within walking distance to Oscar Wilde’s house, the National Gallery and a bunch of very good restaurants.

Pretty much opposite the hotel, to the left and under ground. It was €18 over night. Reception will need to give you the access code to enter the main gate and the pedestrian gate.
