What a lovely place to stay...big rooms, big bathrooms, quiet setting and good food. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Dublin who wants a good night's sleep after a red-eye flight.

My husband and I have stayed here many times. We actually had our wedding reception here back in 2014 when it was formerly Bewleys and loved it. We had stayed again in December 2016 and were a bit disappointed with the service, however our visit in March totally won us over again. Firstly, we felt the service had improved, particularly...

Our flight to Ireland arrived 45 minutes early and arrived at the hotel at 6:30 AM--7 hours before check-in time. The front desk staff was amazing. Our rooms were already waiting for us and we were able to check-in immediately! Our room was bright and the beds were very comfortable. Not sure where the reviewer who called the hotel "tired"...

Whilst clean and service ok this hotel is showing its age and is in need of refurbishment. The rooms are dark and quite small although very clean. They also hide the scare towels and tea and coffee facilities in drawers . Bathroom is pretty good, but breakfast was pretty poor . the usual fried food and not great at that.
