Great hotel--Short drive from action/Ocean view
The hotel is located about 15 minutes by car from the city center. Great location to avoid the traffic noise and smog that city's typically have. The drive was pleasant to and from every location. We went into the center of Dublin frequently, went to Cork, and up to Northern Ireland with no problem.
The hotel staff was very friendly. Elevators are small, but get the job done. Parking on-site is FREE. Room service closes at 10 p.m. during the week and 9 p.m. on Sundays. However, the hotel allows for delivery and there are quite a few options they will suggest for you. The hotel also has a bar and restaurant--delicious food.
While traveling, I was still breastfeeding/pumping and due to only having a mini fridge, I could not refreeze my icepacks for day trips. However, I simply asked the bar for a bag of ice and they were quick to get it for me so I could keep my milk cold during the day. They were quite accommodating.
Offered suggestions on activities and warned of early closings of restaurants in Dublin. Right outside the hotel is a Starbucks and a mini shopping mall. A few restaurants are within walking distance.
The hotel staff and Irish LOVE babies :) Everyone was so pleasant.
