Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights as it was close to the city centre. Hotel basic but very clean. Could do with some refurbishment. staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. On the top floor with a shared bathroom. Bathroom was freezing and shower not very powerful. All in all this hotel was ok and even though it was basic it was fine for us as we were out all day

We stayed 3 nights and found the hotel staff to be wonderfully helpful and the hotel very nice. Would stay again and highly recommend. Two of us had an early tour and they opened the kitchen just to ensure we had breakfast. And when we dragged in tired and cold after a very bust day they offerered tea and cookies, which was very welcome!

This hotel is excellent value for money. The bed was quite comfy and the room was spacious. The bathroom was very small but didn't mind that. The hotel is quiet as it is about 15 mins from the city centre, however I will say that the walls are PAPER thin, you can almost hear what people in the next room are saying. The place is very clean, you are provided with a substantial breakfast which is included in the price and also it is open 24 hours so there's no concern about keeping your keys on you.

Room Tip: The rooms with single beds are tiny so if you're staying more than one night definitly ask for a...

I hate hostels, and I will do absolutely anything to avoid staying in one. The Dergvale Hotel, located, about 3 minutes from O'Connell St on the Northside of Dublin, is the perfect compromise for the frugal. No, it doesn't have wi-fi. No, it has no gym or sauna or pool. But that's not what people are staying here for. The lush 1930s decorations kind of make you feel like you're visiting grandma. And the staff keep that feeling alive with constant Irish cheerfulness. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a better room at the very affordable price of €47.

For that price, we received a free breakfast atop immaculate place settings, a clean room with a spacious closet, two sinks, and a small but capable bathroom. The television was small, but if you're another country to watch TV, perhaps you shouldn't have left in the first place. Now, this is Ireland, and Ireland's hotels tend to be on the colder side unless you're staying at a chain like the Hilton or Marriott. But the room did come with an oil space heater that did just the trick.

The hotel is generally quiet, but any noise that does sound is echoed throughout the narrow hallways, so keep that in mind. But the kind staff, clean room, perfect location and killer price make the Dergvale the perfect place for anybody travelling to Ireland on a budget-- and doesn't want to deal with random people in a hostel, running up the halls half naked and being unbearably loud.

Only stayed the one night but would defo use again. Close to city centre and easy access to the airport. Very close to Croke park if GAA is of interest to you. Comfy and clean room, good breakfast and friendly staff. All in all, would have no problem recommending the Dergvale.

We were there for three nights and it was ok. The room was clean and comfortable. Staffs were amazing. But I didn’t like the stairs; going up and down the stairs drove me crazy at times. The price was affordable and the location wasn’t bad at all. Breakfast wasn’t too bad… it was eatable. If there is a next time, I wouldn’t stay at Dergvale Hotel no more than one night.

Nice people - not brand new by any means but very comfortable nevertheless. A simple and easy stay. Breakfast is basic but pleasant (porridge, cornflakes, fry, orange juice, grapefruit). Tv very small but location great.
