Wonderful trip!

Affordable and clean! My boyfriend and I spent three days in Ireland during vacation and stayed at this hotel for each night. The staff was sweet and helpful. Parking was available and cheap. Hotel is within walking distance of food, pubs and more. Staff can call a cheap can to take you into the heart of Dublkn if you don't have a rental car. Breakfast was good and also affordable. The lobby, elevators, hallways and hotel room were clean, beautiful and easy to navigate. The bathroom, bed and closets were clean. The views were nice. Room amenities were also wonderful. Wifi was reliable. We will stay again! We've already recommend this hotel to our friends!

My wife and I have stayed many

My wife and I have stayed many times in this hotel. We have been generally satisified. This time again with regard to the hotel we were satisfied. However this time the introduction of payment for parking was a disappointment. It was bad enough to have to pay but no preference is given for residents. On the day I arrived there were no spaces and was even told off for attempting to park. Had to park for a day on a nearby road. Would suggest double price for non residents and a smaller amount for residents ( if they have to charge.) Another moneymaking idea?? What about the customer experience.

While it is an old fashioned hotel

While it is an old fashioned hotel and a little tired around the edges in some ways it never the less makes up for it in pleasant old fashioned friendliness, helpfulness etc. The location is ideal for airport or town and the area Drumcondra is nice. Food is average. Lots of parking and a cheap an cheerful place to stay. I have been and will be back.
