Good and clean hotel. Very small room. Nice bathroom. Very friendly and helpful people. Corridors on 2nd floor had a very bad smell from fish and chips... The bar had great music and good irish beer! A bit noisy, as expected, being on Eyre Square.

Just stopped in for a quick pint and bite before catching the Dublin train because it is the closest establishment. The pint was fine. The pizza was terrible. Would never order it again. Staff was fine.

Stayed for two nights for a birthday trip away. After reading the latest reviews before we went we were expecting the worst. Silly us! Room was small clean,tidy and had every thing we needed.
