Terrific little hotel in Dublin city! Have twice stayed for a week or more and am planning to book again. Super location, spotlessly clean bathrooms and comfy, clean bedding. My stays were during the winter and the room was toasty warm, wonderful after walking all day. Fast wifi. Outstanding value.
Staff is friendly and helpful with directions or things to do. They make an effort to be sure your stay is enjoyable.
Sit in the lobby and write postcards by the fire or at the bar downstairs (tip: best wings in Dublin!). Neighborhood is pretty, quiet and lovely for walking in the evening. National Botanic Gardens are nearby for strolling during the day.
Great location to/from the airport. Take the city bus from the airport to the Drumcondra Railway stop and walk 5 minutes. If you have a bit of luggage then take the AirLink or AirCoach buses as these services are prepared for you to have luggage.
Going to/from the city centre is easy. A brisk walk to O'Connell St. or else catch nearly any bus on Drumcondra Road in the direction of the city centre. You can also take the 4/9/83/140 buses to/from Phibsboro/Glasnevin so there are plenty of choices for buses. I like to walk in to the city and take a bus back.
The bistro has excellent food whether you want a snack or a full meal and there's a great atmosphere in the evening. Nearby is also The Cheese Pantry and Andersons Cafe, both excellent. Or if you're looking for even more food then I suggest to wander a little further to WJ Kavanaghs on Dorset St. (or taxi to L. Mulligan Grocer, their other location in Stoney Batter).
The hotel is a gem for accommodation and food, accessible to everything and with some nice perks. A perfect base for touring Dublin. Highly recommend for women traveling solo.
