Perfect Stay
We stayed just 2 nights here but wish it was longer! The staff were lovely across the board. The room was spacious, clean, and had a comfy bed. The gym was also VERY good for a hotel gym. Will definitely come again when I visit Dublin next time.

Perfect location!
Absolutely top notch. Front desk staff was helpful no matter what shift. We were in town for a game Aviva stadium and it was a quick easy walk. Rooms were spotlessly cleaned every day. Lovely touches like cookies and bottled water were replaced daily. Huge bath towels. Just a few blocks from the public train. A few great locally owned restaurants a block away. Small grocery a block away. Gas works was delicious and reasonably priced. I would 100% recommend this hotel.
