Nice hotel with very friendly and helpful reception’s staff. They have own bus transfer from/to the airport which is great, just look around for a green bus with yellow-orange inscription on: Paddywagon.
The hotel is with wonderful location, quite area, maybe a little bit noisy if your room is in front and window is open, but is ok, comfortable beds and clean bathroom with bathtub in. No fridge in the room, but there are vending machines on each floor for ice and soft drinks and also in the room you’ve got set to make your own tea or coffee. Notice that the coffee downstairs work only Monday to Friday, same for the coffee shop in diagonal opposite of the hotel.
Don’t forget to check your plugs, there are not with European sockets, so if your plugs are not fit with Irish/English standards you can buy an adaptor from vending machines in the hotel on each floor and they even cheaper then other places I saw in town. Also there is free with good speed WiFi in the rooms which is nice complimentary of the hotel and also you'll find in the room steam iron with ironing board and hairdryer.
The train station Grand Canal Dock of DART (Dublin area rapid transport – it’s great way to explore Dublin area, south or west off the town, don’t miss!) is just 3 minutes away and with more few steps you will reach the supermarket where also have a coffee shop in there. The area around is nice with its Georgian architecture, you can stroll along the canal or go for a walk on the river, town centre is only about 20 minutes by feet, also there are wonderful parks near the hotel and also you can go to the beach of Dublin bay by foot. Nice place to stay in Dublin, i'll be glad to stay there again!
