Best for On a budget - Expert review of Temple Bar Hotel

Temple Bar's most popular three star houses all the potential for a five star party.

I've spent the odd (very) late night in the basement of this enduring three star -- the Temple Bar Hotel is, and always has been, a one stop shop for a night out. Warm up in the Rendez-vous bar before braving the cavernous Buskers disco venue and later, a newly renovated ‘Alchemy’ downstairs is a much smarter dance club than its cheesy predecessor (Boomerangs). The hotel rooms are spacious and perfectly adequate for a three star. There’s live music in Buskers on Monday nights and a DJ in Alchemy at the weekends until late. That said, there are four conference rooms and the hotel is growing that side of the business.

Location: 

At the heart of Dublin’s nightlife, the bars and clubs of Temple Bar are going off seven nights a week.

Bedrooms: 

This is one of the few city centre hotels offering triple rooms so it is great for groups. King sized executive rooms offer a flat screen TV, CD and DVD player. There’s also free WiFi throughout – a surprise plus for a three star.

Public areas: 

The public areas here centre on socialising so they are lots of fun but there are no quiet nooks or crannies to relax in.

Eating and drinking: 

Not fine dining, but well-priced bar food at less than 10 euros is always welcome. Lots of wine can be consumed in either Buskers or Alchemy into the wee hours of the morning.

Leisure facilities: 

The hotel has an agreement with a nearby gym Crunch Fitness where guests get a special rate of €6.00, which allows you full access to the gym and pool for an hour and half. Corporate guests get free access. 

Service: 

Friendly and attentive.
