    bloom's is located just up the street from the temple bar area.nice location and the price is reasonable,however the drunks spilling out of the bars will surely wake you up at 2am

    Unique Quality: bloom's has it's own bar called the vat bar.

    Good Location


    This hotel has a very good location- in Temple Bar area. Room was adequate, room was clean and a good size. Bathroom was very large. Rates include Irish breakfast. Staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions about the area. Only drawback was that on the weekend, hotel is in a very noisy area of the city and need to ask for a room in the back of the building. Unfortunately, other guests at the hotel on the weekend were partying and very loud. Was told this is not unusual on the weekends.

    Unique Quality: Perfect location for sightseeing.

    In the Temple Bar area


    There is nothing to complain about this hotel's location as it's in the heart of Temple Bar area. You can go out on the pub crawl all night long (well, until they kick you out after the midnight), and just walk back to the hotel.

    The room was much smaller than other places where I stayed in Dublin, and looked much older. Don't open the window in the room even late at night as it's quite noisy outside on the street below.

    The room came with a buffet style breakfast, which wasn't good at all.

    Unique Quality: The nightly live music at the pub "Vat House" on the ground floor.

    Also, Club M is attached to the hotel, and usually hotel guests receive free/discount ticket to the club.

    Great location in Dublin


    Nice hotel in Temple Bar area- the happening area of Dublin. Room was a good size and nicely furnished. Only problem was that late at night the area tended to be noisy due to the many bars in the area. Very friendly staff- as is typical of most Dubliners.

    Unique Quality: Good location

    Directions: Temple Bar area

Club M

by jacquitabanana about Club M

In Temple bar this nightclub is like a representative of what temple bar is about.
Tourist mania meets Stag and Hen nights. (this is mainly due to it being in the Blooms Hotel)
Good for girls on a girls night out who don't give a crap where they go (and fella's too of course)
Mixed chart and dance tunes.
fun but not a place to be if your a big pub or club picky dress to pull seems order of the night

No surprises!

by TripAdvisor Member tommo2k

Stayed at Blooms hotel for my birthday weekend. No surprises, much as I expected it to be. Great central location, yes it is noisy but what do you expect from a hotel in the Temple Bar area? Beyond the lobby, the whole hotel is rather tired and in need of an update. The bathroom was a bit grubby but nothing worth complaining about. The breakfast was self service buffet and the food was of a good quality but no frills. A good value hotel if all you are looking for is a good location and a base for making the most of what temple bar has to offer.

Bad Hotel Good location

by A TripAdvisor Member

This hotel has a good location but our room was next to the air conditioning units and the noise was unbearable! the heat was turned up so it made it impossible to sleep and the bathroom was moldy and old. the towels also looked old and in need of replacing. The room had no tea/coffee making facilities and didnt even have a chair. The bed was old and needed replacing. But the location was great and the breakfast was delightful the staff are mostly irish and the Vat bar downstairs was commerical irish and pleasant. Temple bar is very noisly after dark so suggest you only stay in this area if you are joining in the drinking not for someone wanting peace (not that you can get any with the air conditioning units!) If you visit Dublin visit the Guinness experience for the best pint you ever had the views at the top is worth the entry price alone. Top tip at the airport get the 747 airlink bus which runs every 10mins direct to O'connely st which is central you can walk anywhere from there and it only costs 5euro each way. saves you 20euro getting a taxi.

Loud Proud and very Noisy ...

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed here in the height of summer its very Central and if you like being kept awake its fine . The Aforementioned air conditioning units are as loud as mentioned even on the fourth floor where we were . Sirens and shouting in the streets below from 2:00 am as mentioned elsewhere also .

The hotel is very nice and atmospheric but there are a lot of Foreign staff who find it hard to understand you ??? Yes in Dublin !!!.

Breakfast was hard to fault we only stayed b&b, but the bacon and the overfried eggs were best avoided as my companion said the eggs have "skirts" on meaning they are burned round the edge and soft in the middle .

Rooms are sparse and there is no tea making facilites they have lovely built in alarm radios that do not work neither radio nor alrm worked and the bog standard Tv had various fuzzy channels .

Bathroom cramped and shower very small indeed and no Bath available either !!

I WONT BE BACK UNLESS everywhere else is full !!

If you want quiet best bet is to stay out with the city, buy a weekly bus ticket and avaoid the rush hour for coming in to town.

Loved the city not this Hotel ....

All in all it was okay as a place to bed down but not for getting a rest .

Great Hotel, Great Guiness!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Myself and a couple of friends have just returned from a long weekend in Dublin. We stayed at Blooms and my first impression was what a great Hotel. Ideally situated (even the VAT Bar!) We hadn't seen any of the reviews beforehand, so we had to find out for ourselves the noise from the Club M discotech!! We were on the fifth floor (i felt sorry for people on the first floor) Overall i thought the rooms were very good. It took me a while to figure out how to work the T.V (I keep forgetting about the switch on the wall, you have to press this aswell as the plug switch-so remember that if you go. Its not because your t.v isn't working)
Also you had the constant noise from the fan in the bathroom. You would expect this to stop once you had turned the light off, but no it kept going and going and....(you get what im saying)
The food was fab, especially the brekkie, of course i went back for seconds-who wouldn't!
All in all i thought it was a decent hotel (i've stayed in worse!) I would def stay there again!

Great location, but just too much street noise

by TripAdvisor Member Rives

Spent 3 nights there on a lads weekend away, so it was ideal for our needs - central location, affordable.

VAT Bar proved an excellent meeting up point, and the bar staff were very friendly. Located just 20 yards away from the busy Temple Bar, and 400 yards from Grafton Street, it was perfectly located.

The rooms were very basic, and a little worn around the edges, but clean. There are two sections to the hotel, one is a farily modern purpose built section with sealed windows and probably air conditioning, and the other is Georgian, with old sash windows and no aircon. We were in the latter, and as the rooms were stuffy, had to keep the windows ajar to allow some ventilation. The noise early morning was unbearable, and although our sleep was aided by, when that wears off, you'll hear revellers, street cleaners, road sweeper vehicles right through to 8am. It actually gets quieter towards 9am/ 10am!!

Unfortunately the hotel was full and we were unable to move rooms, and although it didn't spoil our trip, those with families should steer clear of this hotel.

New Years Eve in Dublin

by trouble_gb

I'm going to be visiting Dublin for New Years Eve with a female freind.
We are both mid 20's and single and like to have fun !

We are looking for some ideas on what to do on Dec 31st.
Where we live in the UK you need to buy tickets in advance for bars and clubs - is it the same in Dublin ?

If anyone has some suggestions I would be really pleased to hear them

Where are you staying? if its a hotel they may have a ball on, yes you do need tickets to get into a lot of the clubs but you can buy them on the day or days before. It is very hard to get taxi's on New Years Eve so make sure you are staying in City Centre. Templebar has lots of really good bars, you could spend the night on a pub crawl around there.

Re: Re: New Years Eve in Dublin

In my experience, most people just go to house parties, where they can stay over and not get fleeced in clubs and bars for drinks and then try to get a taxi home.
There could well be an outdoor concert/event going on, so that could be fun.

The Odean near St. Stephens Green is supposed to be amazing on New Years Eve, they call it 007 or something and as far as i know its black tie. There are also loads of stuff advertised closer to the time. Check out and they should have a list of entertainment

by jonnyv1

For a pre club drink I'm really liking a new pub/restauant that has opened called the Lotts on lower liffey street (across from the hapeny bridge). The food is great and the beer resonably priced and they have live music towards the weekend such as pianists and jazz singers.

Re: New Years Eve in Dublin

by BernieMon

For years I avoided Temple Bar in Dublin becasue I thought it would be too over priced for the night - last year a gang of us braved it - well talk about surpried - we started and ended the night in the TURKS HEAD - it was free in - there was a brilliant crowd - and a brilliant athmosphere - we called them this year to see if its still free and it is and they have drinks promotion on the night too - bargin!!!! Just in case you are coming accross the water they have a hotel too - think its called the Paramont Hotel - check it out!!!
