We came to Dublin for the Wales v Ireland rugby match and stayed in the Harding Hotel for 4 nights. As you can imagine, Dublin was packed with Welsh fans and the hotel was extremely busy!
Our room was a triple - large and nicely decorated, with very comfortable single beds and a fantastic power shower. Rooms were cleaned and towels changed daily.
Our rate (less than £30pppn) included breakfast - choice of full Irish, smoked salmon & eggs or continental, with tea/coffee and juice. The breakfast was delicious and so filling that we didn't eat lunch the whole time we were there!
The staff were very friendly and helpful - we even sent one poor guy on a fruitless hunt for coathangers and he was only too happy to help!
The hotel is in a prime location, opposite Christchurch Cathedral and on the edge of Temple Bar. The sightseeing bus stops just opposite the hotel.
The only downside to our stay was the noise from the hotel bar. Our room was directly above it and we were subject to very loud (and bad) karaoke and a live band. earplugs sorted this out though. If you have children or are a light sleeper I wold request a room as far away form the bar as possible!
We will definitely be going back to this hotel as it has everything you need for a short break in Dublin at a fraction of the price of most of the other overpriced hotels.
