The welcome was not as expected considering other comments. Not bad but expected a bit more from the staff. Got more information from locals in other bars. Amazing people in Dublin. The location was brilliant and accommodation was good for the price. As a massive tea drinker, disappointed that the kettle kept on boiling and not near enough milk! The beds were really comfortable and the shower very spacious but quite a lot of mould and the light fitting was hanging out of the ceiling on the bathroom. Also, after a few pints of Guinness the toilet not flushing properly was a bit embarrassing! The windows would not open unless wedged by a loo roll but overall for the price paid not bad at all. Would come back if little problems were sorted.

It was a great place and the staff was wonderful!!! The location was perfect and the prices for the rooms was exeptable. The only thing that was bad was the tea, so we got our own:)I am sooo going back there to stay!!

Loved being so close to everything we wanted to do. Of course, the gorgeous rooms are above a bar in a very popular area so there's some noise, but overall great place. Would stay here again.

Just an amazing place. The staff are extremely friendly and is very local to everything. If you are not a fan of noise I would not stay here as it is in the Temple Bar area with lots of young people but as far as we were concerned it made it even better. The room is exactly like it is in the photos and it was definitely the best shower we had on our whole trip and the beds are very very comfy. I will for sure be coming back there next time and be recommending it to everyone. 10/10 Fantastic!!!

Only stayed one night but cant praise it high enough. Our room had a huge bathroom with a jacuzi. Everything really modern and fresh including the automatically controlled shutter for the skylight over the bed. Very impressive. Not sure what the other rooms are like but that room was amazing. Staff reallt friendly and helpful. Tip!-Phone the pub in advance to see when you can pick up keys.
