My husband i have returned from Dublin after staying in campus
accommodation at trinity college, i was apprehensive when i booked our stay at the college, when we arrived, we was very pleased with our ground floor apartment!. we stayed in the older style accommodation, block 36 room 02, as you open the front door to the block, the old school smell just hits you, and brought back memories of my old junior school( fab) when we got through the front door we turned left into a corridor and on this corridor the toilet and showers( which were great) situated further along was our apartment. it consisted of a small hall, 2 bedrooms with 1single bed, lounge, kitchen, fridge and storage area. the apartment, and bedding was scrupulously clean.
I only had 1complaint about the apartment, it had no sockets near any mirrors, this made using my hair appliances very difficult, as i had only a small make up mirror with me.The college location is central to all of the tourist attractions, and will be back next year, (with a bigger mirror) lol

Stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom suite.

Pros
Close to Temple bar area and main tourist sites.
The university which obviously houses the accommodation is full of character and history, quite at night.
Great bathroom with a strong shower.
Breakfast is fantastic, huge variety.
Security is good.

Cons
There are only single beds in the 2 bedroom suites.
As the students who usually stay here leave for holidays, they take virtually evrything with them. This means the place is pretty bare. The living room has no TV, but has a full working kitchen but only 2 sets of cutlery/crockery.
Girlfriend tells me walking through the university on the cobblestones in stilettos back to the room is not easy.

stayed at the dorms in trinity after having to make a last minute trip up to dublin..a big GAA match on the next night meant hostels were sold out.

pro's:
*very very central
*single room with ensuite was big
*kitchenette for a late night cup of tea
*price very reasonable for location and time of year
*sound security guards

cons:
*staff (students i think) at checkin didnt seem to care..only gave very basic details and had to ask for more info
*10am checkout..need i say more? very unusual for any hostel/hotel in ireland.
*a bit of a walk to room but not too bad..wouldnt want to be any further away from the gate if coming in after midnight

overall a fine experience but i would only use it again if i was going up to dublin for a quiet night out...not good if you like late nights and a bit of a sleepin!!

Excellent location, great continental breakfast included in room rate, full Irish upgrade available. Varied student rooms and apartments available, best seem to be en-suite singles offer a good standard of clean accommodation serviced daily.

Access at all times, an historic haven of peace from the bustle of Central Dublin & temple bar areas. Pavilion Bar over looking leafy cricket field and running track, excellent transport links and various access points around secure campus.

Reluctant to post review for this well kept secret.

Stayed at Trinity College dorms for one night during a 2-week stay in Ireland (July 2006). It's important to note that hotel costs in Dublin are excessively pricey relative to the rest of Ireland, but especially so during the summer months.

We booked a night here due to its central location and the great price. We had 2 twin beds with a private bathroom (called a "double room en suite") in the main area, and our room faced the college's interior courtyard (not the city). As a result, our room was peaceful and quiet and we slept soundly. After midnight, only one gate remains open and everyone who wants to come onto campus must present their room key to campus security. I felt very safe on campus because of this.

While the rooms are spartan (they're dorm rooms!), they are very clean and quiet - make sure to request a interior courtyard facing room. The bathroom was tiny. My 6'4" husband literally could not fit his body into the shower. It was probably 24" X 24". Bath towels, but no wash cloths, are provided.

There's also kitchenettes on each floor that are shared with multiple rooms. Good for light cooking.

Continental breakfast is included in the price (hot breakfast is an additional 4 euros but really not worth it or necessary), and is served at "The Buttery," the college's dining hall. The continental breakfast offered a nice selection of cereals, yogurts, fruits, coffee/tea, and muffins/croissants. It's served from 8:15-9:30 each morning. We saw a variety of travelers who were staying in the other rooms - families with children, older couples, single travelers, etc.

The "hop off-hop on" open-air buses are conveniently located just outside the main entrance, which was a nice perk, and I'd definitely recommend doing if you're touring the city. (It's 14 euros/adult and offers a 90-minute circule of various city sights.)

I would definitely stay at Trinity College if we were to return to Dublin again. Great price, clean rooms, and the best location in the city.
