The hotel was only 10 minutes away from the finishing line of the marathon and it went past the hotel, the hotel itself was nice but could do with a bit if attention in the bedroom and bathroom.When we arrived to check in they said that there was no rooms ready but to call back at 5.30 NOT IMPRESSED!!!

The food in the dining room and the Gasworks Pub is great Irish food. The staff, Catherine at the front desk and Haley in the Gasworks went above and beyond...
