It is a nice hotel and in the centre off city walking distance to the bars very near to shops temple bar had a great meal in a restaurant called boxty
The staff was awesome! Very accommodating. The hotel is in a great location. Very clean and a great place to stay.
The location is fantastic with a short walk to tourist sites, excellent restaurants, and the light rail and bus systems. Amenities are appropriate for a mid range hotel, although I don't imagine many places in Dublin have air conditioning to cope with the heat and humidity seen recently. The Arlington ...

Excellent staff Good breakfast Nice rooms Very comfortable beds
Everything about the hotel met our needs perfectly. The staff was so helpful with information about the city, and the location could not have been better. We were in walking distance or near public transportation for everything we needed, and our tour pickups were around the corner.
Doormen (David) were very helpful and a great breakfast
I cant say enough about the helpful and friendly staff here. Beautiful hotel, and our room was ready at 10 a.m., a welcome gift after our red eye flight! Only thing a hit off was the riom was advertised as city view, but it was not. May be Expedia issue, but overall, an excellent stay.
On Dame Street, south of the River Liffey in the heart of Dublin, stands the mighty architectural achievement that is Dublin Castle, parts of which date back to 1200. Over the centuries Dublin Castle has been a fortress and treasury, a royal palace and a prison. Prior to Irish independence in the 1920s, it was also the centre of British rule in Ireland. Today, Dublin Castle is a government building and significant historic emblem.
While most of the building dates to the 1800s, its ancient heritage is still evident in the ancient Record Tower. This sole surviving element of Dublin Castle’s medieval origins is a magnificent stone stalwart. It is the perfect complement to the adjoining 19th century Chapel Royal, built in the Gothic Revival style.
Today, the castle is primarily used for official Irish government engagements, but its opulent State Rooms are accessible to the general public via guided tour. Open all year round, including bank holidays (but not Christmas and New Year) the castle has a wonderful craft shop and heritage centre. It also has its own restaurant, meaning you can absorb the historic bustle of Dublin as you tuck in to some tasty local cuisine.
Surrounded by excellent eateries and a number of theatres, Dublin Castle is served by nearly a dozen bus services. As such, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t soak up the area’s eclectic heritage by visiting this gem at the heart of the Irish capital.
