I would have given this place 0 stars if that was an option. This place was so negative that it actually made me regret going to Dublin. The receptionist from when I checked in actually seemed to take satisfaction in her rudeness and unhelpfulness. Certain people aren’t cut out for service industries, but wow, she was a pitbull.
My room and the lobby were small and tight, but clean and more or less well maintained, so you can definitely do worst. I was on the top floor so the water pressure in my shower was annoyingly weak and spotty. Also, they provide no toiletries.
The location is right by Temple Bar and across the street from both the Porter House Bar and the Leffe River, so location is great. It had a small entrance but if you find the Porter House Bar, you’ll be able to find the entrance pretty quickly. Dining hall was standard. The wifi didn’t reach my room but was free and if I went down a floor I could connect. Also, they had electrical adapters available on deposit, which was helpful. I stayed in Room 11, which had private access to the roof, which was great for smoking. But the service and cleaning staff were awful. Probably the worst I’ve ever experienced in any country I’ve ever visited.
There are several comparably priced options to this place in Dublin, so unless you have some burning desire for this particular location, AVOID Bridge House if you can.
