Amazing hotel in Temple Bar! The staff is very friendly, and even did their best to get us into some local attractions since I failed to do so. While I rarely pay for an upgraded room, I am glad we did this time. The terrace was a treat! In the morning we could grab coffee, and in the evenings a pint of Guinness, and sit on the terrace overlooking the action of Dublin. Great hotel!

Beautiful boutique hotel right in the heart of Temple Bar. The nightlife is very active (particularly on weekends!), so expect that. But it wasn't unmanagable with windows closed. I prefer fresh air so I left them cracked, but again, I knew what to expect. The room was beautiful, clean and well decorated. Front desk staff was very accomodating, providing advice for locations to eat and suggestions on using the bus (excellent public transportation right outside the front door). Highly recommend!
