Firstly contrary to website advice the easiest way to this hotel is the 747 Airlink Express into the city then the DART from Connolly Station to Lansdowne Road (4stops) followed by a 5 minute walk.A 72 hour LEAP card is available from the airport for €19.50.
The hotel itself looks impressive in and out and we were given a warm welcome from the receptionist so were hoping for great things with the room but sadly this was rather disappointing. Situated right at the back with not even a garden to look onto and being able to hear other guests meant not even being able to have a window open which made sleeping difficult as the room was too warm. Clean and tidy but the bathroom needs some TLC as it was looking tired and neglected. The hotel provides guests with access to free WiFi which is great. A buffet style breakfast is served in the restaurant with a good choice of hot and cold food to cater for everyone's taste, including some Gluten Free options.
Finally if I had known we were going to be at the back in the room without a view I would probably have paid a small extra to be upgraded, maybe this needs stating on the website.
