                excellent hotel, could not say enough about the staff, very clean hotel, near a lot of good attractions, would recommend this to family and friends

              • Couple
                8.2

                It was extremely convenient and a shuttle bus to the O2 venue was organised at reception when we were checking in. Parking was also available.

                When we arrived at the hotel, we got dinner in the Gasworks bar of the hotel and it was very poor. I would recommend not eating in this bar.

              • Couple
                7.4

                The room was very comfortable, good value for money, free car park is nice added bonus

                Rang hotel twice looking for directions to the hotel from the Red Cow and from the city area - neither times was the person who answered the phone able to give me directions to the hotel

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                It was a pleasant surprise. For its price, this hotel offers more than you would expect. The rooms are huge, the bed big and confortable and overall very clean and nice.

                A little far if you want to walk to the main spots in downtown, but not too much.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Perfect location for a night at the theatre, and easy acces to shops on route from Dundrum via Stillorgan Road and city centre. Comfortable room.

                Only bar food availbale on night of stay and breakfast was only average.
