“for the location and price”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

First visit to Dublin was made great based on our stay at the Harding. The location is great and fit the hope to stay in a place that has character but with modern amenities, moderately priced and clean. When traveling, my priorities of a hotel are clean and safe but close to the city center. The attached pub has a nice atmosphere and great live music.

The hotel let us check in early, which we greatly appreciated. We were impressed with the front desk personnel, who were very helpful and accommodating. They even arranged a taxi for us, along with an early wakeup call, to get us to the Irish Ferries on time. After checking out, I realized that I had left my iPad in the room. The hotel staff kept it safe for me until I could go back to pick it up. We had fish and chips at Darkey Kelly's (the hotel's pub) and watched World Cup soccer on TV there. Our stay was very enjoyable, and we would stay there again.

Stayed here in mid-June 2014. This is a great hotel for being a tourist in Dublin. Its location is perfect. Across the street from Christ Church, 5 minutes from the Brazen Head pub & St. Pats Cathedral , 3 blocks from the Temple Bar district and about a 10 minute walk from Trinity College and the national museums. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The attached pub has the best selection of craft beers in Dublin. For all the great pubs in Ireland, there is a paucity of beer choices. It's pretty much Guinness & Heineken and a few other choices. This pub has made an effort to centralize Ireland's craft beers in one location.

For all its benefits (great rooms, central location and craft beers), this was one of the least expensive accommodations on our entire Ireland trip.

Would definitely stay here the next time we're in Dublin.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the bar to avoid the noise.

We have been here a day and the location is great! Very central to many sights and close to good restaurants. The staff is very friendly and the room is nice sized. Very cute with nice view of the cathedral. Had a nice dinner at Arlington temple bar and show with music and Irish dancing. Nice night.

Was able to check in early. The staff was helpful with any questions and if you want to do a day tour somewhere. Room was clean, simple and had a mini fridge. Location is excellent, it was quiet and you're close to all the action. Hotel pub and restaurant had great, friendly staff and the pub (Darkey Kellys) is a great place to have a pint of Guinness. Only complaint is the television wasn't working well however I wasn't visiting to watch television either. My next visit to Dublin, Harding Hotel will be my first choice of hotel.

Our room seemed amazingly large for anyplace in Europe! We had some concerns about possible noise from the pub downstairs and the street at the time we booked, but other than the chimes on Christchurch Cathedral across the way, noise was not a problem at all. It's a great location, quick walk from Temple Bar area and many of the major sights. Public transportation and hop on/off bus stops are close by. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The pub downstairs was a great place for a nightcap or more. Live entertainment was top notch. The only criticism of the bar is that it's a regular stop on the pub crawl tour, so there was an invasion of young folks out to drink mass quantities of alcohol on certain nights. We would definitely stay here again if in Dublin.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor facing Fishamble Street. We had a corner room and it was roomy and quiet.

First, I want to say that this is a very nice hotel. Clean and the room was lovely. However, the staff never even looked up from the desk each time we passed to say hello or even acknowledge our existence. My wife and I had colds and needed tissues. Now every hotel or motel I have ever stayed at has provided a box of tissues. My wife was told by a staff member that the hotel is not required to supply tissues and that in 17 years of being in the business she has never had to supply tissues. Then my wife was handed a roll of toilet paper. So if you think I am being picky or fussy about this, please disregard my review. However, if you think that taking care of the small things is important, then perhaps you may want to pass on this hotel.

Dear Joe P,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Harding Hotel and share your recent experience of visiting Dublin.

I am sorry that you felt that the lack of tissues in the hotel bedroom was a major drawback but this is the first time it has ever been raised as an issue with me by a guest.
We will certainly consider getting tissues for rooms for future guests so that this issue may not arise again.
It would be unusual for guests to find the hotel front desk staff to be anything but helpful, polite and friendly as you can see from any amount of reviews posted here and on other feedback sites but I will be sure to emphasise that no matter how busy the reception can be all guests will be greeted by at least a hello.

I am pleased that you found the hotel to suit your needs and that the room was clean & comfortable despite the issues mentioned previously.
Please feel free to contact myself directly should you need to discuss anything raised here or for a future booking on info@hardinghotel.ie or by calling 00353 1 6796500.

With best regards,

Jonathan Hynes
