We arrived looking forward to a much needed break in Dublin city centre. On arrival staff were sullen and unfriendly. They also wouldn't accept a company credit card. Instead of being shown to the elevator we were walked up the stairs to the fourth floor( the elevator was working). There were also maintenance men working on the stairwell which we had to navigate around.
When we returned to the hotel after a lovely evening at the theatre the bar was open but empty. I asked for a cocktail from the list on the bar but the bartender refused. So we took a glass of wine to our room.
At 5 a.m the fire alarm went off, I had to ring reception to find out what was happening. I was told to all was fine, not really considering we were on the top floor. We left the next day. I would never stay there again. It really did ruin what was supposed to be a night off from the kids, work,life.
