OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is in Ballsbridge, a residential tree-lined district just south of Dublin city centre, and it is beside Herbert Park. Ballsbridge is ten minutes by car, taxi or Dart (commuter) rail, or around 30 minutes' walk from the city centre, and is also on bus routes to the city, including that of the Aircoach from Dublin Airport.

By plane: direct flights to Dublin from Manchester and Birmingham (1 hour), and London (1 hour 15 minutes). It's a 25-minute drive to the hotel. On-site parking costs €12 per day. Book flights to Dublin.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The style of the hotel is quite austere and clinical - there are no artworks on bedroom or hallway walls or design touches. Carpets and curtains are grey and furniture is navy with grey cushions. In contrast, the lobby and lounge area is bright with clean lines, huge windows and fun colourful artwork and colourful flower displays.
