"Great airport layover retreat"
After Aer Lingus scheduled us into an overnight layover in Dublin when flying us from Paris to Chicago, we needed a place to sleep and to drop our luggage while dining. This turned out to be a great location, only a mile from the airport and a 20 Euro cab ride from Dublin's town center (full of restaurants, pubs and other diversions). The facilities were clean and comfortable, although the plumbing is old and feeble. The beds were comfortable, the storage space was good, and the room had a television. It's not the Ritz, and the building is not new, but it is not shabby, either, so no complaints. There is no A/C, but it's Dublin, so we can't imagine A/C is ever necessary. We were there in late June, and the overnight temp was 47F. The room was clean and the area was quiet, so we have absolutely no complaints. We'd recommend this place without reservation.
There's a comfortable lobby gathering area with a fireplace, sofas and books, and a large, sunny breakfast room with views of two gardens. The "continental breakfast" included toast, yogurt, fruit, juices, tea and coffee, and was served on time. There's a shuttle to the airport for 2E per person, and the desk clerk can usually get you a cab in a few minutes, if you want to go anywhere else. Overall, it was a pleasant and convenient experience.
