Stayed here out last night in Dublin, the Hotel is beautiful and are room was great. Well worth the value. Only downside might be that's it a short cab ride to Temple bar area but we were looking for something away from all the crowds

there's an old tower around which the hotel has been built. Neighborhood has almost no dining options. 10 minute walk to bus which takes you downtown, where a ten minute walk brings you close to where you are going.

We had a lunch here for 10 people to say farewell to a staff member on a Wednesday afternoon. Despite being very busy we received excellent service from our friendly waitress Elaine. We all chose from the a la carte menu, although there is buffet as well, and the food was delicious! Would highly recommend. Thanks
