As an ex-resident of Dublin, it's interesting to come back and live out of a hotel for a few days. The Temple Bar area would not have been a first choice - it's loud, and overpriced for beers and food. But on the recommendation of a friend I checked into the Morgan.
This is a small hotel that's right in the middle of the temple bar action. As such, both the nightlife (in all it's glory) is immediately on-hand. But so is easy walking access to all the major sights of Dublin city centre. So full marks for walkability.
The hotel itself is 'boutique' in atmosphere. A small intimate lobby, with a nice décor and ambience, and a welcoming staff. Just adjacent is a substantial dining area where I did grab breakfast one morning. Buffet style, immediate seating and good quality fare. The coffee took a little while to arrive but overall a good breakfast experience.
Room itself is small. A double bed and essential furniture. But I have stayed in more compact rooms in other major cities for sure. No sign of air conditioning, but in April this is not an issue. Dublin hotels can get a little stuffy in summer, so something to check other reviews for a view on.
My stay was midweek, and just before the tourist season kicked off. So I didn't notice any noise pollution.
They have a deal with the parking garage across the street (literally) although the price break is for a full 24 hours. For shorter stops, or over night, the garage rate is better than the hotel. They do advise you of this.
Checkout again was swift and friendly.
Overall a well run, well maintained little city break hotel right in the Temple Bar 'action'. If that's what you're after!
