I was here with my girlfriend for a long weekend in Dublin. The hotel is located close to everything in town and you can walk pretty much everywhere. Bus stop just outside the hotel for the airport which is very handy. In terms of the actual hotel the reception area is nice and the bar looked nice. The lifts are...

We stayed for in the Academy Plaza while on a short break to Dublin and found it to be very comfortable with friendly helpful staff and a lovely room, its in the perfect location for exploring Dublin and offers excellent value for money. We would certainly recommend it and stay again when we next visit Dublin.

We stayed here for a few days and were quite happy. Check in was quick and room ready although we got there at noon. Upgraded to an executive room for 20 euro and it was a good size with 2 beds put together to make a king...that I didn't like so much, but it was fine. Couch and 2 chairs...

Visited this hotel on a short break with coach operator National Holidays. The location is ideal - just seconds from O'Connell Street and within easy access of the Spire monument and the shops on Henry Street - and then only minutes away across Ha'penny Bridge to trendy Temple Bar. It was cold day when we arrived but they were very...

Stayed here with my partner and 2 other couples for the weekend. Nice sized rooms, very helpful staff and a well-stocked bar. The location is good with a couple of good pubs close by and is walking distance from most of the cities attractions.

This hotel is a pure gem smack bang in the centre of dublin city! Myself and my friends stayed here for an Ed Sheeran concert! The luas, o'connell street, shopping are just around the corner so it's a great base. Beds very comfy and a family room was a perfect size for us all!

We were in Dublin for 8 days at the beginning of October and stayed at the Academy Plaza. We arrived quite early in the morning from Toronto so our room wasn't ready yet which was understandable. The front desk staff were quite nice and we left our bags and went to explore a bit. Location of this hotel is fantastic,...

I stayed here for 2 nights over the St Andrews Bank Holiday weekend and this hotel was perfect. The hotel is in the perfect location, just off O'Connell street (the main shopping street) so you're close to everything but far enough away to avoid the noise from the traffic and busy streets. The hotel is well decorated inside and the...

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Academy for one night while on our first European vacation. The hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly and very helpful. The location was perfect for obtaining the airport bus and also the on/off tour bus. Would definitely stay there again.
