The hotel is ideally suited to travel into the city by bus. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant. We were on the fourth floor and it was very quiet, even though we were next to the lift. I will be back to stay the next time I visit Dublin.

This is just a very small negative comment - if any the bathroom was a little small but adequate for an overnight stay. It was clean which is what I look for.
