Stayed for one night recently on a special occassion trip to Dublin. We had been given a voucher which we had used to upgrade to a nicer room and the hotel upgraded us again to a nice suite. I would definitely recommend paying the extra to stay in the older part of the hotel as the rooms have lovely vaulted ceilings and nicer furniture and much more character than the garden wing. Its more of a country house feel - the bathrooms may seem a little dated but I feel like they are in keeping with the oldly manor house style.
Concierge and reception are top class - The bar is a little stuffy and I dont like that you cant have a drink at the bar - you have to take a seat and they take your order. The day rooms are nice - perfect for lazy afternoon tea and rading the paper. Also the art collection throughout the hotel is fantastic - my personal favourite "The Gombeen Men" by John Boyd
Breakfast is a trek through the hotel and then a lift to the cellar bar area - so I'd recommend ordering breakfast in Bed. We didnt use the pool / spa area but it did look most attractive.
