My friends and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at Harrington Hall. We were originally meant to stay in different accommodation but since that fell through Harrington Hall was one of the only hotels available for the St Patrick's week period. We were all so relieved to find accommodation that we weren't expecting the hotel to be of any great standard, but we were proved wrong. The hotel (which may be more aptly called a Guest House) definitely exceeded our expectations. We got an early flight into Dublin and arrived 4 hours before check-in, but the woman at reception was extremely helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage in the luggage room until we checked in, which was very helpful since we wanted to look around without lugging things around! Since I had booked through another website, there was a discrepancy with the price but this was quickly resolved and we didn't have to pay extra. We checked in at 3 o'clock and the rooms were spotless and nicely made up. We had 3 rooms of 3 but they were certainly not cramped - high ceilings and comfy beds, with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space.
The hotel is perfectly located for seeing all of Dublin. We managed to walk everywhere and quickly found our way around. We only had to use public transport once and that was to go to the outskirts of town. It is on a lovely street (Harcourt Street), which has Georgian houses and a couple of extremely popular night clubs (great for us, but maybe not if you're not wanting to experience noisy nightlife). There was noise from the clubs at night but if you're at the back of the hotel you don't notice it at all; and even if you are at the front it's not terribly loud.
The staff were all really helpful the whole time we were there and allowed us to use the living room for playing cards and poker until 3am, which was ideal since we were a large group. On check-out (noon) we were again allowed to leave our bags until we had to leave for our flight so that we could make the most of our last day. We also asked for a taxi to be booked to take us to the airport later and the guy on reception was very obliging and organised it for us.
All in all we had a really good stay (although one morning there was no water for a couple of hours which was weird - think it was a general plumbing issue though, which they resolved quickly!) and would definitely return if we went back to Dublin (which I think a lot of us will do)! This hotel is definitely great value for money and the service was impeccable.
