This hotel surprised me because so many of my recent hotel experiences have been fairly 'meh'. But I was fortunate to get a good rate on this room (€65) and the establishment is just a little outside the city centre so it's well away from the evening madness that seems to grip certain parts of Dublin city centre at night (mainly a result of too much drinking). The room itself was big(!), clean and with a massive double bed which was pretty comfy. The bathroom too was big with a good shower and my room was a quiet one, facing away from the main road.
Breakfast wasn't included but you can buy a continental breakfast for €6.50 and pay more if you want a 'proper' cooked breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and there is free internet access at reception if you need to go online but haven't brought your laptop.
The Lansdowne Hotel is roughly 15 minutes walk from St. Stephen's Green - add another 7 or 8 to get to Trinity College. There are buses on that route from the centre and the Airbus can drop you within 10 minutes' walk of the hotel too.
I'd definitely go back (if I can get a similar bargain price).
