For those travelling on a budget, I would reccomend Caulfields, the hotel represented value for money in a city where hotel prices are extremely expensive. If you're looking for somewhere smack bang in Temple Bar, though, forget it. The room was basic, yet clean, with UK television (handy if you want to watch EastEnders before hitting the town). My only quibble was that the hotel was billed as being "Off O'Connell Street" implying that it was a stone's throw from the city centre itself. It was as much "Off O'Connell Street" as Deansgate in Manchester. Although the location is classed as D1, the hotel is a good bit out of the city centre - and a long walk back from Temple Bar. Girls on their own, or those wearing high-heeled shoes would be well advised to take a taxi back. What we found was that our €5 Dublin Bus Rover came in handy after checking in - there are bus stops outside the hotel - the 16 taking you to O'Connell Street, and the 13 took us to Dame Street/South Great George's Street. Can't comment on breakfast as I overslept - however, there are various shops and takeaways in the vicinity as well as the bar food. I also spent a long time tracking down an off-licence, save yourselves time and bring your own, or alternatively, an off licence is to be found by going right from the hotel, then taking the next right to the bottom of the street. In terms of being gay friendly, the hotel staff didn't appear to be mind one bit, although reception did re-confirm we wanted a double room. In case they thought we were brothers or a pair of centre forwards for Blackburn Rovers presumably. On the whole though, the service was good and friendly. One I would reccomend, after pointing out the pros and cons.
