We chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly staff member who gave us a thorough overview of Dublin and answered our questions about bus passes. She even provided an information packet with some Dublin history and recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing.
The rooms were terrific. Spacious and very clean with modern touches like a huge flatscreen TV, DVD player (but no DVDs) and a remote-control fireplace. The bathroom was large and almost luxurious. The bar and sitting areas were spacious and well designed. Room service was tasty; we especially liked the Irish cheese plate.
The only drawback is that it's not in the center of town, but this is easily overlooked since many buses stop right outside. For travel to/from the airport, take the Aircoach, which picks up and drops off just outside the hotel. Roundtrip ticket is €14.
The suburb of Donnybrook has plenty to offer. There is a gourmet supermarket just down the road (with its own restaurant on the second floor), as well as a pharmacy and several pubs.
We loved this hotel and would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Recommendation: Elephant & Castle (Temple Bar) for breakfast; try the Irish pinhead oatmeal.
