We stayed here our first night in Ireland to recover from jet lag before exploring the rest of the country. The hotel is very clean, staff is friendly, and we really appreciated the little things like a good shower head, large comfy bed, US-compatible outlets in the rooms, and free, fast Wi-Fi. The view from the window was over an adjacent parking lot courtyard, which was not so elegant, but we didn't stay in during the day anyway. Breakfast here is not included like it is with a B&B, but there are many nice places to eat just about two blocks down by Trinity College. This is a great location to stay for seeing most of the city on foot, although if you are coming from the airport you might want to take a cab or a get one once you arrive in the city via bus, since we ended up walking over a mile with our luggage to get there from the bus stop (fine if you are healthy and travel light, not so fine if you are not healthy or carry a large suitcase).
