Stayed one night while in Dubiln. Booked the room on Booking.com. Checked in a little earlier but the room was ready so the staff was nice to let us in early. They were friendly. The room was right on the bottom floor, windows opened up to a small alley where workers were outside, noisy. Also the head of one of...

Dear Bonnie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. However, I regret to read that your stay was not satisfactory. I am disappointed to hear that you found the staff to be unhelpful as this is certainly not how we have our staff conduct themselves. Currently, I am reviewing all television...

Hi, We stayed here recently and it was very enjoyable, it is a brilliant location and very close to town but also it is close to the Mater hospital, Dublin as we were visiting someone there. Very clean and the little small things like water, milk and biscuits left out, the friendly staff despite our late arrival were all a...

Visited Dublin with the wife for a couple of nights before Christmas. Had a great stay in this hotel. It was easy to walk to from the city centre. The only down side was the thin walls and small bathroom. If and when I visit Dublin again if the price was right I'd stay here again

We stayed at Clifden 2 weeks ago for 1 night. We were booked in quickly and shown to our apartment. It was spotlessly clean, well-equpped, warm and comfortable.

I booked a one bedroom apartment with sofa bed in living room. This was for myself and a colleague as we were looking for an economical way to book 2 rooms.
