My wife and I traveled to Ireland in mid-September and spent 3 nights in Dublin at the start and end of our trip. We stayed at La Stampa both times and loved it. A charming little hotel with a lot of atmosphere. The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly and the decor was very nice without being pretentious. The hotel also has two very nice restaurants and a large bar that can get quite busy at night. It is also located right next to several other trendy bars and night spots. Despite having an active night scene downstairs, the rooms were still quiet enough for a good night sleep (we stayed on the third floor). The only thing about La Stampa that I would describe as a problem was that the elevator and stairs were located in the back of the hotel so you had to go through the bar to get to them. Still, this hotel was fantastic and unbeatable for the price.
The location was also a big plus. It's only a five minute walk from St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College, and Grafton Street and a fifteen minute walk from Temple Bar and the National Gallery. In addition, there is a "Green Bus" stop at the end of the block. The "Green Bus" costs 16 euro for a one day pass and has stops all over the city including the Guiness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol, and Parnell Square.
