We stayed in the dorm rooms on Trinity College's campus July 9-12. These are basic accommodations as expected from a dorm. On the positive side the view from the room was lovely. And you couldn't possibly have a better location to see Dublin. You are in the heart of the city without the loudness of Temple Bar. We also had very good internet access, really close bus stops, and friendly staff.
On the down side, it is a dorm room. Do not expect the Ritz. The shower had plenty of hot water, but was REALLY small. I would say it is 2 feet by 2 feet square. I am 5' 6", 125 lbs. I didn't have trouble using it. However, I had to be careful when I washed my hair because my elbows hit both walls. Other small issues were that the doors badly need WD40 and the light switch to the bathroom is outside behind the door. The maid service disconnected the hinge that automatically closed the bathroom door (not sure if this was on purpose or not), but that helped with the squeaking. The room was cool enough with the window open, even in July.
Breakfast comes with the accommodations. I think you can be satisfied with it. They are very good at explaining what is free and what isn't. After the first day we skipped it and went to a lovely bakery just off Dame Street - Keoghs. Their coffee and muffins are amazing...
We were very happy here. I would absolutely stay here again. But you need to come in understanding that this is totally no frills.
