Just back from a fabulous three day trip in Dublin, staying two nights at the Blu Royal Hotel.
We arrived before our rooms were ready Tuesday morning (as expected) but were checked in and left our luggage so we could go off and sightsee.
Staff were very helpful, friendly, professional and efficient throughout our stay, offering maps, advice where to shop, sorting out online check-in for return flights and putting our two rooms on the same floor so our two families travelling together were near each other.
Our twin-room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom with large bath (plus shower spray) and shower with waterfall head (plus another shower spray) was absolutely lovely.
Breakfast wasn't included in our rate, but there were plenty of places close by to pick up a coffee and danish or sit and have a more substantial meal. There was tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the room, so was easy to have a drink before heading out.
The hotel was well placed to visit all the sights of the city and we really put this to the test; doing everything on foot over the three days and managing to visit St.Patrick's, Christ Church, Guinness, Jameson, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Chester Beatty Library, the Spire, Ha'Penny Bridge, Grafton Street (afternoon tea at Bewley's twice!), St.Stephen's Park, and the National Museum of Archaeology (twice!)
I would definitely use the Blu Royal again for any future visits to Dublin, for its lovely rooms, superb staff and perfect location to sightsee from.
