I chose this hotel after a lot of research on Dublin hotels, for our honeymoon.
The hotel itself was amazing, especially if u like to be in the thick of all the action. Really central to most things in Dublin ( I really recomend the Guiness storehouse and Jamesons distilery). And u cant get better night life from a hotel, lovely irish music first then nice dance music and a nightclub on the weekend (although a bit pointless having it downstairs???). The breakfast is lovely, esp the sausages. And the rooms were very comfortable and the staff really helpful when it came to room service.
Now for the bad bit. If u have a car then all u can do is hope that they have a space available for you as we turned up after a long overnight journey only to find that they had no space for us and we had to pay extortionate prices in the multistorey carpark. When they did have a space for us a few hours later we parked there and were told that it would still be there when we got back if we ever wanted to take the car out. We didnt want to risk it and for a few days stayed in Dublin touring everything. But on the last but one day of our stay we wanted to go to Kildare to visit family, but were told we were NOT guarenteed a space when we got back, so we disappointedly decided to leave it til the last day instead. When we got back from Kildare, sure enough the space was gone, and the multistorey carparks were locked up. Luckily one of the did open their doors for us, but next day we had to pay 12 euros for parking over night when we should have had free parking. I think the hotel should maybe scrap the nightclub and make it into a new bigger car park, at least you would be guarenteed a space then. Just keep the music in the bar area?
Had a lovely time apart from that though. Would recommend as long as you are not planning on taking your car out anywhere.
