We recently spent 4 nights at this hotel as a family of 4. The staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for you. The food in the restaurant was good quality/value and the breakfasts were okay too. On the downside, the family rooms are located on the fourth floor and the noise from the bar area kept us awake most of the first night. However, the bar was not open and the guests who were making the noise were asked to leave by the hotel staff after 5 complaints. The hotel consists of 3 hotels joined together and the areas you are not supposed to see are still accessible. One of the stairways was supported with a metal frame so don't let your children explore on their own. The rooms are comfortable and reasonable value for money, however there are no mattress protectors and their were pieces of the last guests rubbish still on the floor. The hotel is fairly accessible for families but I would not recommend the location for anyone who has trouble walking. You are close to bus routes but due to the traffic it can take a long time to get about the city. Another down side to Dublin is the number of beggars (who all seemed to have good quality clothing and iphones). Also, this area at night is a bit rough and whilst we were there somebody had their bag snatched. I think if we visited again I would prefer to stay over the other side of the river as we have done in the past.
