We stayed here our first two nights in Dublin as part of a week's stay given to us by our children. The hotel is quite a distance from Dublin's center...so even though we had a car, we traveled in and back by taxi....Our room had two beds...which we thought strange for a couple but the best part of the room was the beautiful and spacious bathroom. The beds were OK, but not hotel quality. The highlight of our stay was the first person we met at the front desk upon arrival: Ian. He was friendly, courteous and generous of spirit at all times...our first impression of the Irish people for two very tired travelers. Unfortunately he doesn't work around the clock...The afternoon staffing the front desk (Sinead and the brunette with glasses) were mostly indifferent. Their attitude was dismissive and their help non existent. Only when we asked Sinead for her name did she even give us a bit of attention....they talked mostly to each other and while we waited for our Taxi, I noticed they were the same to everyone even on the phone. The consierge was not helpful at all....Ian gave us all the help. The women working in the restaurant at breakfast were wonderful....the breakfast was good, opt for the fried eggs as the scrambled are from a carton...the coffee, tea and juices were watered down. the best was the decaf...desserts in the lounge at the end of the day with cappuccino were great.
