"Great location and standards. Better than a hotel!"
I am a regular visitor to Dublin but I usually stay in a hotel. Not any more! This was the first time in an apartment which I booked for a friends birthday celebration. The apartment gave us much more freedom at no extra cost in comparison to hotels. There were 3 women on this trip for a 5 night stay. On arrival we received a warm welcome and my friend was wished a happy birthday. Check in was simple and efficient and we were very pleased when we saw our lovely apartment.. It was spacious, modern, clean and comfortable with a balcony that is accessable from the living room. Sofas and chairs were cosy with one sofa that adapts to a sofa bed. The dining area seated 6 and the kitchen had everything you would have at home, even a dishwasher! It was a modern kitchen with soft closing drawers. The washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board were in a separate room. We had 2 bedrooms, one with good sized twin beds and the other with a larger than king sized bed. All beds were very comfortable and spotless. The bathroom was spacious with bath and shower option and plenty of hot water. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I cannot fault this place and will definitely be booking again.
This is one of the better hostels. Rooms hold as few as 2 people all the way up to dozens. We chose a four person room, and the price was great. The continental breakfast was simple, but filling. There was a lift, too, which was extremely nice. It is on Fleet Street in Temple Bar, so bring ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise. I am a light sleeper and had no problem with the ear plugs. People who choose to stay in a hostel need to remember that they are NOT hotel rooms. You will be bunking with strangers, the rooms will be small, there is no daily maid service, and you will have to share a toilet and shower. However, you will meet many nice people and have a really fun time.
We loved our stay in Bray just outside of Dublin. The Martello was very nice and centrally located. The beach was beautiful and the weather was great. The pub outside the hotel had great food and great view. It was easy to get to Dublin on the DART. I would go back again. Loved it!

On the Irish east coast just 30 minutes from Dublin city centre, the hotel Martello enjoys a prime location in Bray, a nice …More
I've stayed at the Royal Marine on multiple occasions and have always had a great experience. I particularly like the "no problem is to big" attitude from the staff. They are always very accommodating to special requests. The ambience of the Bay feels more like a community centre with the comings and goings of people having coffee a meal or small business meetings. Clean rooms. Fantastic location.
