First impression was very pleasant and efficient reception. Very impressed with the room – good furnishings including two comfy armchairs, proper drawers for clothes (in addition to hanging space), fresh and clean décor, and nice comfy double bed. Drinking glasses (not plastic). Bewley’s tea, coffee and drinking chocolate in the room. Full size mirror in addition to the over-desk mirror with power points and hairdryer. Free WiFi with instant (no ‘registration’) access on Netbook, Kindle and smartphone. Towelling robe and slippers. Good sized fully-tiled bathroom, with over-bath shower and very nice toiletries. In addition to the main Irish channels, the TV had BBC1,2,3 and 4; Channel 4/5, Film 4/E4, and Sky news. Sky Sports available in the bar. Situated beside the (working) harbour, the hotel is a very short walk to the town centre, riverside and all in-town attractions and shops, restaurants etc. Some daytime/evening road noise at the front rooms probably more than offset by the lack of outside (late night?) revelry that might be experienced in actual town centre hotels in this lively city?

Dinner – you can eat in the bar or in the restaurant. Starters cost Euro 6.95-8.95; mains 15.95-22.95 (for the rib-eye steak); desert all 5.95. Was brought a ‘patience’ of brown bread and butter, with a glass of chilled water, as soon as I sat down. Chose the Trawlerman’s Linuguine from the mains (no starter/pudding tonight – been overeating) and it came with a generous helping of prawns, salmon, mussels all in a nice sauce. A glass of the house Merlot to wash it down. Service, again, was cheerful, attentive and efficient.

Breakfast offered a very good choice from the cold and from the hot buffet … got my pot of tea served quickly. Food quality good.

Would certainly stay here again.
