Profile: City Centre Dublin

Profile: City Centre Dublin

City Centre Dublin is chock-full of sights to explore on foot, from the stone buildings of Trinity College to the cobbled streets of Temple Bar. Take a stroll up colorful Dame Street and enjoy a view of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin’s oldest building, sitting atop the hill.

For a spot of retail therapy, navigate your way between luxury and high-street favorites on Grafton Street and Henry Street. Take a detour to the Creative Quarter and hunt for some of Dublin’s best vintage bargains. Then, rest your weary legs with a sit-down in one of the city center’s leafy parks.

  • 8.0.Very good

    New building, room was clean but very small. Good if you won’t be spending much time in the room. Most of the staff was nice, one of them had a little bit of attitude one time but that was it. Great location, close to the Jameson distillery and a short walk to the temple bar district. The one thing that made our stay not so great was that the fact that the elevator was broken and my boyfriend is currently on crutches. We were on the 4th floor and they said nothing else was available, so we had to take 6 flights of stairs every time. Overall had a nice stay.

    Great student residence type private rooms. Very clean and bright . As with everywhere in this part of the world, their "double" bed is smaller than a North American double...so my daughter slept on the floor with the duvet while I took the bed. It was so clean and comfy though that we were both happy with that.

    Clean and comfortable stay with modern hostel vibe

    This place is fine and has a nice "modern hostel" vibe. The cafe right downstairs is a nice feature and has great coffee. Rooms are small but comfortable and clean. Tram also stops just around the corner, so easy to get to city center and train or bus stations. It felt a bit understaffed as there was usually a line of people at the front desk and the employees seemed a bit frazzled. Elevator was also out of service for the three days I was there.

    Good food, very clean, friendly staff. Too noisy for me, though. Party life is very active.

    Room was basic and clean. USB wall chargers were convient, but place was very noisy at night. Children playing outside and seagulls.

    The building seems brand new, high-security access with room card to enter the building, the elevators, and room itself. ("Gardia"/Police station next door, but we were not bothered by noise). Well-located in Smithfield across from St Michan Church, between 2 tram stops (one within eye-distance from Church Street), near city bus stops (as well as the hop on and off tour buses), and airport shuttle stop (Usher Quay stop coming from airport, then cross the river Liffey; Arran Quay in front of "Ocean house" stop going to the airport). Only a short block from the famous Brazen Head pub, the oldest pub in Ireland and easy walking distance to Temple Bar area, Parnell Square and other tourist attractions like Dublinia and Christ Church Cathedral. The front-desk staff was very helpful and friendly. There is also a little cafe area in the lobby to get soft drinks, snacks and coffee, but they close very early. There is, however, a bodega a few paces up the street so that was not a problem to get drinks and snacks after 5pm. The room was on the small side but very clean and comfortable; No TV, but that did not bother us either. I definitely recommend this place and will book there again if I ever get the chance to return to Dublin for a visit.

    Give this place a try

    A nice inexpensive option for an ensuite stay in downtown Dublin. Though geared for long term student stays it was a nice option for a 1 night stay. Being only a couple blocks from O'Connell Street is a real plus. There was on-street parking available about a block away.

    If you're looking for a basic, no frills hotel room, this is a great option. Keep in mind that these rooms are 1/2 to 1/3 of the price of many of the more traditional hotel rooms in Dublin! Yes the rooms are small and dorm-like, but they do have private bathrooms, and there are common areas with couches and TVs in the hotel if you want to get out of your room. There are also common kitchens with microwaves, toasters, kettles and lots of fridge space, as well as coin laundry facilities. This property is sort of a middle-ground between a hotel and a hostel. It can be a bit noisy at times as the clientele skews to the younger side, but it is very clean and the staff are friendly and attentive. And the location is great -- walking distance to the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson and Teeling Distilleries and Temple Bar, but just far enough away from these attractions that the nightlife won't keep you awake. Highly recommended!
