There was some confusion during check-in, but our overall stay was great. Location is a little far from Dublin center, so if you’re looking to be a little on the outskirts, this is the place for you!

Weekend away with family
Positives We arrived very late on the Friday night but were given a very warm welcome by Owen, he was really friendly and very helpful. The room was clean with tea/coffee making facilities and plenty of drawer space. Good bus links Negatives I think 240euros was a bit steep for just a room for 2 nights, but I guess it is now classed as high season We had no hot water for the whole of our stay, we did mention it and was told it was a gas fault but it was being dealt with. There was not a lot to do around the hotel, caught the bus into the Dublin city centre
