In Dublin to see Biffy Clyro in the grounds of Kilmainham hospital. Aside from the concert being unreal, the hotel wasn't too bad either.
The staff were friendly and professional and on the night we stayed the hotel was booked out as well as being host to several functions (karate comp/ weddings) but the staff assured us noise would not be a problem, and they were right. It was refreshing to hear nothing outside our room which was located on the first floor.
The entrance to the hotel is quite modern but the actual hotel is a little dated, bland colour schemes and old fashioned decor, although in some respects this added to its charm.
In the room we had a few issues that we didn't think were worth raising with staff as they were clearly busy that night, and it was after all just a place to lay our heads.
The bath had no plug, although the bathroom was finished quite nicely, and the TV turned itself off at regular intervals. Also the bed was a little hard for my liking. The halls around the cooking and eating area also smelt a little of stale grease, but I cant fault the general cleanliness or attitude of the staff.
We only ate in the bar, not the restaurant, and although we thought the food and drink a little pricey, the standard was good and the meal enjoyable.
There is also a handy centra next door for any odds and ends you may need: cigarettes, toothbrushes, morning papers etc.
There is a gym, spa and pool attached to this hotel and it is free to guests, the gym is well laid out with modern equipment and weights and the pool looks lovely with waterfall effect features (there is a 5 euros refundable deposit for lockers and 1 euro charge for towel rental).
This is just a nice old fashioned hotel, becoming modern in places.
Transport into the city centre is cheap and very nearby.
