We arrived early in Dublin (5am) and got to the hotel by 6:15am. We weren't able to check in that early since someone was in our room, but we asked them to expedite it since we had a toddler with us. They gave us a call by 10:45 saying it was ready for us which was wonderful since we were exhausted.
The hotel was clean and comfortable. Plenty of space for us with the travel cot. The location is perfect and in walking distance to most things. We even made the trek to the Guinness Storehouse and back but we are from the NYC area and are used to walking.
Parking was the only issue since there is no onsite parking. The front desk told us to go to QPark which was a 10 minute walk away but when I left the lot I was told that I was in the wrong QPark. Parking was discounted, but for a day and a half ended up being 30 Euros.
