A great experience

While it's a bit out of Dublin, with Google Maps and a Vistors Leap Card you can get to most of the places you want via public Transport very easily. Staff were friendly and helpful, room is comfortable, good facilities (gym, pool, restraints, etc) and close to a shopping centre.

The hotel was ok, it's facilities were good but the room was dated and the floor was very creaky and noisy near the doorway and bathroom. However the staff were very helpful!
