He ensured we had the most comfortable and enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend staying here. We were in the Junior Suite and it was...

I am not sure why everyone is raving about this place. It's nothing to write home about. It's average at best, and I would not recommend it to anyone wanting a romantic stay. Cold and noisy, but great location. We stayed in the Junior Suite with a view of the street out front. The reviewer before (goob13 I believe) is...

We stayed 3 nights. Excellent location to walk to reataurants, pubs, shops. Rooms are small but very clean. We had a room in the back with a view of brick wall, but it was quiet and we were only in the room when we were sleeping. The dining area was small and crowded on the weekend, but the breakfast was...

We stayed two nights upon our arrival in Ireland in early April. The hotel is well maintained and located convenient to the downtown shops & restaurants. Our room was a good size and had what seemed like a new, very nice bathroom. Luxurious spot by European hotel standards. The desk staff was pleasant and helpful in booking tours etc. Tommy,...
