The four-star hotel is located ten minutes' walk out of the city centre and five minutes from the village of Ranelagh where some of Dublin’s best bars and restaurants are found. The site is excellent for walkers as there’s a tree-lined path running along by the historical canal that is parallel to the hotel. The Air Coach stops two minutes down the road and the Luas passes right outside the door.
Bedrooms are understatedly stylish, and rooms with a canal view are the best, all with queen-sized beds, or upgrade to a suite for a king sized bed and complimentary movie or chocolates. Most rooms are the same size so standards are consistent throughout.
An impressive cocktail menu, leather seats and funky music in the bar area creates a relaxing, social hang out at any time of the day. There’s also a leafy courtyard for summer drinks or a BBQ while a private patio is also available for guests. There are five conference rooms.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast is served until midday and lunch and dinner options in the restaurant or bar are of a high standard and affordable – there’s a three-course early bird offer for 22 euros. There is also the option of room service.
There’s a small gym open 24 hours a day for guests.
Lots of young, friendly staff contributes to a fresh atmosphere.
