Lovely accommodation with very friendly and helpful staff! Rooms were a good size and had very comfortable beds. Location was brilliant with everything you need on your doorstep. Will definitely be coming back :)

This pub became a favorite of mine on my trip to Dublin. It has an excellent range of beer and the live music is very good.

The whole pub has a nice friendly atmosphere and is not as loud as other places on Temple Bar.

Great Price, for a hidden gem.
very much a boutique room, we stayed in a room with a luxury Jacuzzi bath!
we stayed quite a while ago now, but the room was fantastic.
it was noisy but this is temple bar area so what else do you expect
we were pleasantly surprised by the room and the bar downstairs was nice also
we would return to the room!

I loved it here the room was warm and comfortable, the staff were extremely helpful telling us exactly where to go for what etc. The pub below is traditional and friendly and the only downside was it was quite noisy outide at night but it is a great location for pubs and clubs!

Fantastic pub, friendly and helpful staff, manager even put the celtic v Ajax game on for us, live music was very enjoyable, food was lovely and tasty, drinks flowed all night, pub was busy with a mix of tourists and regulars who mingled and entertained with each other's stories. Would return again

Stayed in this hotel for one night, booked it due to its location in temple bar. Impressed with look of hotel room and wardrobe space etc. Nice clean room with comfortable beds. Bathroom was nice and modern although the shower wasn't working for about 30 minutes and the guy who worked there wasn't very helpful. This then made us late getting for our concert, the staff didn't really care at all. This is the only thing that annoyed us about our stay, so I would stay here again. I've stayed in The Temple Bar Hotel just a little further up the street and I have to say that the rooms were nicer in this hotel, but slightly more quiet in the other hotel. If you are looking for a quiet hotel do not stay in Temple Bar as it is extremely noisy. Overall impressed with the Farringtons and would stay again (for a short period of time).
