This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! I was a guest there on Wednesday and Thursday, October 23 and 24, 2013, and I probably got a grand total of 5 hours of sleep over those two nights due to street noise from nearby clubs. When I complained after the first night I was told that the noise was to be expected because the street was a popular hang-out. I asked for a different room and they said the were full and could not move me. The second night was so bad I called the front desk at 12:30 to complain. The phone rang many times, I didn't count how many and I finally hung up. I waited several minutes - using my time to record the street noise on my iPad which I will share with anyone who wants it - and called again. This time I counted 23 rings before it was answered by a sleepy sounding woman. I told her the noise was too high to sleep and she said that she saw the police working their way in our direction to quiet the revelers down. The police did finally arrive and they dispersed the crowd but as soon as the police left the crowd was back. The last car stopped honking at about 5:00 a.m. Yes, they honk much like a football crowd leaving the stadium parking after a big game. And, just to be clear this was a Thursday night. When I checked out the next morning I was not asked if my stay was satisfactory. To tell you the truth I don't think they really cared.
Otherwise, the WiFi is only available in the lounge which has seen better days. The location is good. The room was clean and in good condition. If you have no plans to sleep while in Dublin Harrington Hall will do just fine. And, if you plan to go clubbing while there this is the place for you. As for me, I rate sleep high on my rankings of places I will return to. This place I am only trying to forget. PASS IT BY.
