Park Inn Dublin
Top Notch & Central
Overall, top notch.
Pros - great service, good bar, very central - esp to Jamesons distillery! and good price; good brekky too
Cons - did forget to give us clean towels, did have late night party saturday (v noisy, heard in room!) and did give us a 4am room call which we didnt ask for
If they can iron out the cons, itd be 9/10
Unique Quality: viewing chimney (closed for refurb when i went) and location
Directions: North of the Liffey, just head for the viewing chimney or follow Jameson signposts
A take on modern Dublin, with a hint of old.
I stayed here up to and including New Year and would reccomend it to anyone wanting a city break. Thge hotel itself has an amazing feature, the chimney to go up and view everything you need to get to. The room we stayed in, a standard double was fantastic, except for the view, which was a wall. This didn't spoil the experience.
The bathroom was extremely modern and different (in a good way) and I think the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. We were due to check out at 12 on NY day. Hadn't got in until 8am so the staff were very jovial and easy going about us checking out 2 hours late. We got a cheap deal too on Laterooms.com.
Unique Quality: Built from an old whiskey distillery, the hotel has a unique take on the oldy worldy charm aspect and it's the bar that demonstrates this the most. Some fantastic artwork of the Old Chief himself, it's kind of a gallery/hotel. The chimney has an amazing view and the ice rink directly outside the hotel which was something I intended to do (even bought a funky hat) but6 didn't. Looked really fun though.
There is a fantastic Thai restaurant right next door and you get a discount if staying at this hotel. Well worth a visit too, not just for convenience and the discount, the food was gorgeous.
In the heart of it all and so much great shopping too.
Directions: In the city but not on a main road. We only took cabs to the 2 concerts we saw but walked into town, walked to the Guiness Factory, walked to the bars/shops.
Could not have asked for anywhere better :o)
We could not book in until 14:00 but the staff were happy to put out baggage in a safe room so we could wander into the centre without the extra weight.
The room was excellent, very modern and clean and we had our own balcony.
The hotel has also got a very friendly gift shop attached to it.
The bar is very spacious and the staff are nice and friendly.
I must add that I think it is quite expensive to stay here, but we got an excellent deal from www.lastminute.com, so make sure you check this website out.
Also, the breakfast is an extra cost unless it comes with the room (our did).
According to the hotel website, standards rooms start at 180 euros. e got our double room for £55 for the night including breakfast.
Unique Quality: There is an old chimney next to the hotel left over from the old distillery which is now a museum.
The chimney has been converted into a viewing tower, with a lift going all the way. I think the tower is about 100+ feet. The tower costs 5 euros for adults and 2.50 for children. When you stay at the hotel you get a 2 for the price of 1 voucher :o)
Directions: Coming from the hotel the bus will drop you in Smithfield Village on the other side of the river. Ask for either the hotel, or Voodoo Lounge, or the Viewing Tower. Hotel is up the next street right of Voodoo Lounge.
