Shame about the Room!
We were disappointed with the room and felt it was more like a hostel room than the supposedly hotel that we stayed in. We were on the ground floor right by reception and heard the bell/phone ringing throughout the night and the heavy door permanently being slammed. The bedroom itself was badly in need of decorating and the bathroom very small, especially for my 6'4 boyfriend. The radiator did not work and we had a plug in heater that was not on when we got there in the evening and we were extremely cold! The description on their webpage is not a true description of the hotel.
When we go back to visit Dublin, we will definitely be staying somewhere more appealing.
Not as advertised
I found my room at the top of some very narrow steep stairs and no one to help. the room was pokey and had dirty window and corners. I would expect this of a cheap B&B but not a hotel that advertises itself as quality period tastefully decorated. I did no stay n the end. for £15 per night more I stayed somewhere far superior. I cannot comment on the staff as I only saw the desk guy who was not exactly welcoming
We visited the hotel in March this year, and on arriving at reception too early for check in, we were met by very friendly staff, who let us leave our bags etc, the reception, dining and sitting area were very clean and modern. However on our return later in the day when we got up to our room we saw another side to the hotel. The hotel is in need of a complete overhaul, various cracks etc in the walls, stairs, the bedroom itself was of adequate size, but required to be cleaned a bit more and the windows could do with being a bit more secure, the ensuite has some ventilation and dampness problems that didn't make it very pleasant.
Overall we felt they ahd great staff but it wasn't value for money.
Good deal in an expensive city
Stayed at Browns Hotel, Dublin Feb. 2004. Great little hotel with great staff. Excellent location, we were able to walk everywhere with no trouble. The city was very expensive and this hotel was the best we found for the price. No lift, but the staff carried all our bags ( party of 6) up and downstairs!!! Not a fancy place but clean and very adequate.
Booked an 8 bed room for 8 mates, arrived to find they had squeezed 2 extra beds in so we had 2 strangers. Lots of arguing and hassle to rectify the situation for which we were blamed. V small room. Not clean. Toilets miles away and no locks on doors ! Full irish breakfast = toast and weetabix. Avoid
I found the hotel was average in the accommodation (though we did have a dodgy window) but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Very small pokey rooms.
I stayed at the Browns hotel last minute booking via the web. I found
it expensive for what it was. A small albeit clean room. There were no
facilities to make drinks and, although tea and coffee was free it
meant a walk up and down 4 flights of stairs. The breakfast was good
but there was no way to obtain food after this. The location is pretty
central but not really picturesque. The staff were very helpful though.
I would not rush back there again.
The small and difficult to use shower was a slight inconvenance, but was more than made up for by the helpful and knowledgable staff. Great service by the staff.
Great value hotel!
Great value for money boutique style hotel in central location. Also has hostel next door for backpackers. So much to see and do in Dublin. Can't wait to go back.
great three days in dublin, recommend the Abbey theatre, and Beauleys lunch time theatre, take a city bus tour and make sure you visit the book of Kells and the long room.

On my way out I visited the science buildings, which was hosting an exhibition on Climate Change. I really enjoyed the way they created their installations to engage you and think about climate change in a different way. It’s a difficult subject ...

"Because it's gay pride in Dublin today," he continues to whisper (I'd swear he was putting his hand to his mouth to muffle his voice further). "Well, how about that," I said.

We visit Phoenix Park which is right in the city and has beautiful gardens, sporting fields and outdoor spaces for the community. Back into town to the area near the river called Temple Bar. This area has cobbled streets and lanes and is the hip place to go, lots of restaurants, pubs, music places, side alleys and is the
happening place at night for some craic. During the day the unique other

My first interaction with an Irishman was with our cab driver. He looked in a way that I had already come to identify as typically Irish: beaky nose, beady eyes and colors like the city of Dublin (grays and rusty browns). I got into the cab along with two other girls from my program, Be and Meredith, and our cabby said something in Gaelic that sounded--to me-- vaguely like " hemoglobin." Then he played a trick on Meredith, asking her if ...
It's been almost a month since I went to Ireland. As usual, I'm being a procrastinator when writing this blog. (I guess it's a good thing I didn't go into journalism or communications...) I'm not sure if it's my huge dislike of writing, my perfectionism for writing, or my fear of being uninteresting when I write that makes me dread writing these? Either way, I'm sorry for taking so long (you really should be used to it though ;) ).
On the flight to Dublin, I sat next to an ...
