The Harding Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 7, 2006

It took us a while to find it, going at least two stops too far on the tram than we needed to, and then having to walk back with heavy rucksacks for about 15 minutes but, eventually we got there.

We were so exhausted that we just wanted to crash as soon as we got there, so the guy on reception just spent a couple of minutes explaining where the airport bus stops were and no.. unfortunately no taxis.. taxis are on strike on Monday.. so there was no choice but to take the bus.

At 2am a random door knocker disturbed the entire 3rd floor (oHhh this hotel has a working lift btw), until he/she was told to *feck off and let everyone sleep!!*by an irate guest in the room a couple of doors from ours. It turned out that she was from a very drunk hen party and had forgotten her room number.

The room was comfy, spacious and had all the usual facilities including masses of coffee, tea bags and milk!! Fab!! We were very happy campers! :)

Unique Quality: Breakfast was served by a waiter downstairs in the Copper Alley Bistro - salmon and scrambled eggs or full Irish or continental - I had the salmon and eggs before heading off to find the bus stop.

Directions: Between Temple Bar and Christchurch Cathedral

The room was clean but a bit small (well, I guess it was a single room...). I liked a view of Christ Church from my room. Very convenient location, only a short walk to Dublin Castle and Temple Bar district.

The room booking "may" come with a breakfast. Check when you book.

Directions: Across the street from Christ Church Cathedral.

The people at the Harding were very nice, and the service and food was great. The rooms were all uniquely designed and were differnt from any other hotel I have every been too.

Unique Quality: The location is great, right in the center of Dublin.The bathroom was interesting because instead of a tub or shower, there was just a walk in shower in the corner of the bathroom with a curtain and you had to keep pushing a button every 20 seconds or so keep the water running.

Directions: In the heart of Dublin, also near Jury's Inn and Christchurch Cathedral.

Close to attractions and those required pubs!

Unique Quality: Contrary to popular belief, having a room which faces Christchurch is not the end of the world. The church bells do ring every 15 minutes to some degree, as church bells are wont to do, but it was not a bother. Even at night. Go figure.

Directions: walk allll the way down Dame St from Trinity College, continue after it's become Lord Edward St, and turn down Fishamble St when you get to Christchurch. Voila!

convenient, but not too much so

Just 1km from Trinity College and that hub of Dublin's activity, the Harding is an easy walk or bus ride to just about anywhere you might want or need to be in Dublin proper. There's a sloooow computer downstairs in the lobby, for your 24hr internet needs, but just a block away is an actual internet shop with zippy highspeed access, and it's open 24hrs as well. The room is spacious enough, and if you arrive early at 1130a, you just might luck out and be assigned a double for the price of the single you reserved, woohoo!

Directions: smack across Fishamble St. from Christchurch itself!

Harding Hotel, in Dublin's oldest lane

by written on October 20, 2002

Right in the cente o Dublin but quiet at the same time, since it's located in a back lane - which turns out to be Dublin's oldest lane. It's a really nice friendly hotel with lots of pine wood and a fun pub on the premises.

Unique Quality: I suggest the Harding Hotel because it is run by friends. Hence I'm using their website photo without permission, knowing the manageress (Ellen) would surely forgive me

Directions: near christchurch, behind kinlay house in dame street
