A visit to Dublin on St Patrick's night and to watch the Ireland v England rugby - yes, a clear time when prices might increase a little. But, a room, a twin room, for €500+? No breakfast included, poor lighting, the smallest of TVs (and a poor quality image at that), no replacement milks for hot drinks, old tatty packs...

Very nice stay, clean rooms, centrally located can be a bit noisy from street. Historical building adds charm and the breakfast was quick and easy. Staff are very accomodating. Was able to walk everywhere. Just around corner from Temple Bar area, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Mollie Malone and the Liffie.

Henry Street is about a 6 minute walk. The Dublin City tour bus stop is only a 2 minute walk away on Dane Street. You will be spoilt for choice for places...

Love this place for a cosy drink in the library bar! The staff are really friendly and the atmosphere in the bar is perfect for a cosy afternoon.

Amazing location right in the heart of Dublin, not particularly on the fancy side but an amazing price for an amazing location. If not interested in sleeping in a 5 star environment would recommend time and time again.

I stayed at the Central Hotel, Dublin for a week.
