I booked this hotel as it was a good and affordable option in Dublin, however was a little hesitant of the location being out of the city (kilmainham).
This ended up being my favourite part of the hotel! it was lovely walking each day to the bus stop to get into the city, and getting to see all the little houses and areas in Dublin.
The hotel itself was lovely! pretty standard for the hilton, the rooms were decently sized, shower was nice and the breakfast was good.
I had great service from the guy who checked us in and out, i think his name was James or something like that. He gave us a map, told us where to shop and gave us great advice as he was checking us in. thanks to him, our dublin adventures were so much better as we knew how to get around!
Travelling just after christmas time, i was a fan of the beautiful decorations in the lobby. one thing that was disappointing was that we were not notified of the changes in gym and pool opening times. unfortunately because of this we did not get to take advantage of this.
Breakfast was nothing special, but provided a good start to the day. I was travelling with a friend who is a celiac and could not have any gluten, and each day they provided her with gluten free bread. unfortunately they misadvised her about the other options she could eat, and she was sick for the rest of the day. easy mistake but should be looked into to make sure it doesnt happen again.
Overall i have very fond memories of this hotel, and would say that after travelling through Europe and staying in various Hiltons, it ranks in the top 3 for me!
i would not even hesitate to book this hotel and will definitely stay again when i plan to come back!
