My husband, who is from Ireland, was meeting me in Dublin on my first nigh in the country. Being from the North, he had never actually been to Dublin so we were looking forward to enjoying several things for the first night before heading up to his neck of the woods. We arrived around noon and there were no rooms available so we went around the corner for a bite to eat until we could check in. The front desk attendant was wiling to hold our bags so that was very nice. Once we checked around 2, we basically just dropped our things and got ready to go and came back throughout the day to grab jackets, switch clothes, etc. It wasn't until we were ready to go to bed that we realized the beds were HORRIBLE! Very uncomfortable! Our beds felt like two very outdated twin beds pushed together. They were most uncomfortable when you approached the middle and you were really on two separate edges so we certainly stayed on our own sides of the bed :) But the proximity to Temple Bar and all it had to offer was great. The only other issues was that when checked out around noon the next morning I saw some of the housekeepers horsing around. (Maybe that's why rooms were ready the day before) But overall, this hotel is good. Very noisy, but we live in NYC so that didn't seem to bother us. The location was amazing with a quick walk to hop on, hop off tours, shopping, plenty of food, the train to the soccer stadium. But I am glad it was only one night, I don't think I could have taken more than on on that bed.
