“Value for money city hotel”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Stayed in the Harrington Hall for one night. Had car parking available which was brilliant for a Dublin city centre hotel. Room was clean and spacious, stylishly decorated with good broadband access. Paid extra for the breakfast which was nice. Recommended,

I stayed at Harrington Hall with my 2 daughters Oct. 2013 for our first night and last night of our two week trip. I recommend taking the Aircoach from the airport and getting off at Leeson Street for a short walk to Harrington Hall. We arrived very early morning and Harrington Hall was able to store our luggage in a small closet while we went out and explored Dublin. We had a triple room with three single beds and plenty of space. I had read reviews here on the loud noise coming from the nightlife on the street and never experienced this. The breakfast was very good with many choices. The location of Harrington Hall is great - just around the block from St. Stephen's Green. I would totally recommend Harrington Hall and plan on returning next year.

This hotel is in a great location. I suggest sat nav to help you find the hotel. I wouldn't stay here again, unless it was just a quick night. The location is excellent, near Grafton Street and the College greens. We had a room in the basement of this Georgian town home. It was very cold down there and we could chill our refreshments sitting on the window ledge. That's cold. The free parking is difficult to say the least. It's a small courtyard out back that should fit five cars but they stuff about nine cars there. They insist you leave your keys with them even if you parked where you would not have to move the car. The receptionist was a bit rude and off putting I must say. The hotel needs a major renovation.

What's not to love about this beautiful b&b? OK, I can think of only one thing ...

CON = the parking is a nightmare. We had to wait 22 minutes to pull out b/c the guy couldn't find the right key to the car that was blocking us in!! That made our drive to the airport all the more frustrating b/c we thought we left enough time to get there. So if you are staying and bring a car, keep that in mind. If you don't have a car, even better!! It's right on the tram line and buses are plentiful.

PRO = other than parking, it was most excellent! The triple bedroom had great beds in a roomy space. The view out the window was nothing to write home about, but who cares? You are in Dublin and in walking distance to everything!! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Shower was the best I had the entire time I was visiting Ireland. No shower has the pressure that this place has!! There were even tissue boxes in the room (which I hear is a rarity). The dining area was absolutely delightful--a bright, yellow, and cheery space! Breakfast included a wide assortment of fruits, cheeses and meats, as well as hot dishes. What I especially loved is the whole fruit that was offered--plums, pears, and grapes (you don't see that often) in addition to apples, oranges, bananas, etc. There was also cut up watermelon in the cooler. The pastry selection was almost pornographic -- so sinfully good. My only complaint about breakfast was the coffee ... drink tea instead! Trust me on that.

I know that some reviewers complained about the noise levels, however, we were in the back of the house, so noise was not an issue, although I could see how it might be if you were street side--there is a rather rowdy and raucous night club just across the street. So -- choose your room nearer the back.

This place was more than I had expected and I can't wait to go back again!! Staff were most helpful and accommodating!!

Room Tip: If noise bothers you, choose a room near the back of the house.

Stayed for 2 days , inc NYE, First the positives, 1. Free car parking ( which could other wise have cost 35-50 ) 2. Great Location.3. Reasonable price 4. Spotlessly clean 5. Nice building 6. Comfy Bed. Personally i had a lovely stay , but I'm a v deep sleeper so noise didn't bother me, Downsides 1. Front rooms are across from copper face jacks and Krystle nightclubs, so it is noisy, 2. Luas runs right outside 3.Walls are very thin, can hear everything 4. Breakfast if needed must be pre booked 5. Not really a hotel more like a guest house
None of the above is meant as a critisim, if you book expecting the hilton you will be disappointed, but for the price it was completely fine.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the rear

A good hotel, very clean with nice public rooms. Willing staff but reception a little slow possibly due to limited space. Breakfast arrangements unnecessarily complicated.
Very noisy outside on Saturday night but this is Dublin

Excellent location for walking into the city, downside- impossible to sleep, night club opposite that people didn't leave until 7.30am! No Bar!!!! and then if that wasn't enough the Tram system starts at 7.00am and the whole building shakes! The breakfast was ok, nothing special though.
