What a quaint little hotel. We stayed here 2 nights and could quite happily stayed longer. Everything about this hotel was just great from the big comfortable room to the lounge, bar and breakfast areas within the converted old school house with its beautiful old soaring wooden ceilings. Fortunately the rooms are in a well disguised new addition to the old buildings so firstly the old buildings haven't been compromised and secondly, guest facilities haven't been compromised by trying to incorporate them into a space that was never meant for this purpose.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious and the beds very sleep inducing!
Most unlike any hotel or B&B we have stayed in on our recent travels in England, Scotland & Ireland, the water pressure in the shower was enough to rip your hair follicles out - not sure if this is the case throughout the hotel but be warned about the seemingly unadjustable water pressure in room 104!
The hotel is located a convenient 10-15 minute walk from Trinity College and the Temple Bar area of town which was convenient for us.
Free wifi in the bedroom was a bonus although this now seems to be common place in almost all of the afore mentioned smaller hotels and B&Bs
