When we arrived at the the hotel we found it warm and welcoming. We arrived early but our room was ready so we were able to get settled in before lunch. Our room was spacious.clean and comfortable. There was ample tea, coffee,milk and sugar for us both to enjoy a cuppa before exploring Dublin. We were at the back of the hotel so heard very little noise from the street. The room also had free WIFI very useful for keeping in touch with home. The staff were efficient helpful and friendly. The choice at breakfast ranged from a full cooked breakfast to yogurt and fresh fruit. cold meats and cheese. I would recommend this hotel to any one who wanted to visit Dublin and stay in a very lively part of the city.
