Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2012

I stayed here for three nights in March.

This hotel has a fantastic location in Temple Bar, with easy access to most of Dublins attractions .

I choose the Hotel because I wanted to listen to the Folk Music that is played in the Bars in the same Street.

There was some noise from the street but not a big problem as I was out late.
The Buffet Breakfast was generous and a good selection.

I had a lovely spacious corner room which was clean and comfortable, a nice touch was the complementary Umbrella.

Stayed: March 2012, travelled solo

I know some people who are purists and say temple bar area is too touristy, and it is. If you are a first timer to Dublin, I think staying in Temple Bar Area is your best bet, and this is a great hotel in this area. The hotel has many amenities that were in important for me on this trip. Wifi is first, I found many parts of Dublin wifi challenged or weak, the signal here was strong and FREE . Rooms are modern and clean and the bathrooms are very good. They serve a decent Irish Breakfast and buffet which is included in your price and the coffee was excellent. There is a really good bar downstairs and if your a late night person a club as well. Last is the location, bad news about Temple bar area is it is full tourists, good news is it is walking distance to everything. Grafton street, Oconnel, Trinity, Nightlife, Buses, Tours. There is a Tesco across the street, if you want to save money and make sandwiches for the day or night. If you are traveling alone you are in a safe area at night . Area is noisy, with constant foot trafffic and late night drunks, so ask for an area of the hotel that is the most quiet.

Room Tip: Single rooms are good enough for two people

We stayed at Temple Bar Hotel for 3 nights (3 for the price of 2) and couldn't have stayed in a more central hotel. Centre of Temple Bar area with lots of bars and restaurants close by. We got the bus from the airport for €10 return which stopped at the top of the street. After reading previous reviews on Tripadvisor I asked for a room in a quiet part of the hotel when booking. We were put in room 305 which overlooked the inner part of the hotel with rooms opposite, not much of a view but we were never disturbed from any noise during our whole stay and spent most of our time out of the hotel anyway. Free wifi in the rooms was great, as was the free safe. Hotel kept our bags upon early arrival prior to our room being prepared and also on the last day so we could continue our sightseeing and one last Guinness before our flight home! All in all we had a great stay and would definitely return to Temple Bar Hotel again for future visits.

We got a room on the first floor at the back of the hotel. The room was freezing when we arrived but once we figured out the air conditioning it warmed up. The room was big and spacious with huge windows but the downside to it was that at night the smoking area for the nightclub is right outside the window and the club is right below the room so its really noisy until between 3-4am when the club finishes. Would ask for a room on higher floors and on the side of the hotel if we return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of the hotel on a high floor
