Nice hotel within walking distance of the Dublin conference centre and a number of restaurants. I recommend the Chop House which is a 2 minute walk from the hotel.

None really, although the cost between the full Irish breakfast and continental was minimal. You may as well go for the full Irish.

I was staying with the hotel as I was doing my final college exams in Dublin and was upgraded to an executive suite at no extra cost, which was fantastic. Staff very friendly, hotel was quiet, food was delicious.

Clean, comfortable rooms, much better standard than possibly expected for the rates.

Not the best location in Dublin but around 10 euro taxi to the city in the evening and 25 euro from the airport.
