Myself & my Boyfriend stayed at the Camden Court hotel on a recent visit to Dublin.
Location was great, very close to St. Stephens green and shopping area.
We also found plenty of great lively pubs near by, packed with locals
I would stay here again, when I go back to Dublin
Unique Quality: When I was looking for a hotel in Dublin I wanted a hotel with a pool, this was not easy to find.
Most of the top end hotels have pools but these were not in downtown locations and we're expensive.
Camden court has a pool and room rates are very well priced.
Chose this instead of hotels ON stephens green strictly because of price.. It's a quick 10 min walk down easy nice streets with shops and restaurants etc and 1/3 the price.. Rooms were average size, clean and very nice.. no problems at all.. BUT NOISY. was there last week and at check-in we chose a room towards the interior of the hotel due to maybe some street noise at night. We were told the interior may be noisy as well since they are working on the garage below but was stated it would be between 8 and 6 daily (the noise and work anyway)... we thought no problem.. we'd be up early and done by 6 no big deal, we'd be out drinking... WRONG. It wasent the fact that the workers were up late working, but yet were there 5:30 - 6:00 AM each day, even on a saturday.. woke myself and my parents (in a sep room) up every day. Once the work is done it I'm sure it will be better, but at least in February, it's noisy in the early morning.. Just a heads up, otherwise great hotel for the price.
This is a reasonably priced three star hotel near St Stephens Green. Its pleasant and efficient and mainly caters to a business crowd but is actually well located for hitting the nightspots of the city as well.
Unique Quality: Quiet location close to the action
Big busy Hotel about 10 mins walk from Grafton Street.
As far as I know the Hotel has secure car parking, which is hard to find in Dublin.
The rooms are standard, comfortable
The main selling point is the Leisure Centre, which has a swimming pool and a gym etc.
The Hotel can get booked up quickly, so early booking would be advisable.
Breakfast has been one of the best I've experienced in Dublin
A bit more pricey than some hotels, but well worth it!!!
Unique Quality: Leisure Centre
high over all specification for a 3 star hotel
Directions: Near Grafton Street and St Stephens Green.
4 nights on a business trip.
Not worth the price.
They do have a fair breakfast, but after the serving lady splashed the souce right on my business skirt she just offered an appology and no attempt of fixing the problem. Restaurant manager said they can not help as they are very busy with other guests. So much to service.
Unique Quality: Irish-theme restaurant serving good lunch. Although it is too crowded and you will have little space to put your plates. Let alone clothes.
We are travelling to Dublin on Saturday, have prebooked tickets with 'aircoach', can anyway tell us the best stop to use to get to the Camden Court Hotel, Camden Street?
I think it will be the Leapordstown service which runs along St Stephens Green and sets down at Lower Leeson Street.
If you take a look at the 4 services listed on the Aircoach web site, it will give details of the city centre stops and you can work out the best one. We used this one when we stayed in Harcourt Street which is one along from Camden Street. Its a 10 minute walk I would say.
The Return stop needs to be confirmed when you get off because it is not always directly opposite or on the same section of road as the one you arrive on!
The Camden Court website has instructions on which air coach stops are closest
Duh! Well there you go then!
:-) You can also ask the coach drivers as they know which hotels are at what stops.
Good advice on the return stop though, ask your hotel desk clerk, it may be that there is a better stop going back to the airport as they run in a loop, I spent an extra 1/2 hour on the bus when I could have walked an extra 5-10 minutes and gotten on the return loop instead of the airport loop.
I didn't check where you are from but if you are a US citizen you will (may) go through immigration in Dublin and need to allow extra time for it. I'm not sure why they do it that way as you still have to go through customs in the US so it doesn't really save you any time.
The stop best for you to get off would be Grafton Street (Trinity) otherwise is starts to head to the suberbs, from here you can cross the road and jump in a taxi about 5mins will get you there about 5-10 euro depending on traffic, or you could walk up grafton street (5 mins) jump on the luas (tram) for one stop get off at the top of Harcourt Street, when you get off turn your back to the Odeon (bar, big stone building, pillers) and walk down the street (2 Min)infront of you Charlottes Way - at the end of this road hang a left and there you are at the hotel.
