Good but noisy
Good location but I was very glad I took earplugs as the noise outside went on until about 4 or 5 in the morning. Lovely staff, good breakfast.
i thought it was really good, right in the centre of temple bar, prime location.
loved the staff, esp Richard!

Perfect for visiting Dublin
I stayed here with my girlfriend when visiting Dublin for a long weekend. Thought the location was superb and the staff were very friendly. OK, the rooms were "cosy" to say the least but more than adequate. Thought the cooked breakfast was spot on.
Had no problems with noise but we were on the second floor and less than sober on our return so just may not have noticed!
All in all would recommend for a weekend in Dublin if you're there for the craic. If you want luxury and a quiet stay then I would recommend avoiding (and probably avoiding Dublin as well!).
Ok for a few nights
Helpful staff. Fairly clean nothing to write home about but for the position it is in price was reasonable. Ok for a few nights stay but not for a holiday. Would recommand for a stag night or a few days in Dublin
Noisy and cramped
Where do I start.The room was tiny could not even walk around the bed.No toiletries,very dark nowhere to put your clothes need I go on.
Did not know that there was a nightclub directly under our room music started at 7.00pm finished at 3.00am!!!!!!!!
Breakfast very bland,expensive for what you got would only recommend to very young people who stayed out all night.
At the Marillion concert
Stayed in River House in Dublin, slap bang in the middle of The Temple Bar area. Very helpful receptionist when we arrived. Rooms were fine and functional.
The man on covering the night shift was dead on, good sense of humour and I'm sure he needed it, great help as well.
Breakfast was great, service and staff excellent.
Thumbs up from all of us.
28 bunnies go wild in Dublin. Riverhouse Hotel was brill. The people there couldn't help us enough. Star of the show was Robert the night porter he was ace very helpful(with his gossip on which bunnies didn't return home until breakfast) and never shouted at us or slagged of the English. The lady at breakfast was lovely she mothered us all and couldn't be more helpful.Compliments to the cook his breakfast was just what we needed after a good drinking session. Ladys on reception were also very helpful and told us where to go and what to do on our nights out. All in all top hotel friendly people well worth another visit. The bunnies will be back.
Confirm your booking
I would love to be in a position to write a review about this hotel.
Unfortunately due to the receptionists inability to perform a basic, but extremely important function, namely entering my booking into the computer, I now find myself looking for 7 double rooms for early February. If you've booked to go to this hotel, or do so in the future I suggest you confirm the booking as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
The good thing about the riverhouse hotel is its slap bang in the middle of the temple bar so you do not have far to stagger home at night, on the minus side the price of the rooms are a bit on the expensive side for what you get which is very small cramped rooms, if you are looking for some late night entertainment ignore the hotel nightclub and sit in reception with a drink cos the oldman who works on reception at nightime must be the rudest most arrogent person you will ever meet in your life and shouts at people to get to there beds and slags of people who are not irish, but to witness him do this is fantastic entertainment unless its you he decides to have a go at.

... the live music going on! A neat fact is that all pubs play live music every night. Irish music is really beautiful & entertaining to listen to! We even found a pub where the band played "If You're Going to San Francisco" for us! Erik & I both really enjoyed that (we even got it on tape). Another cool thing we saw was a band of 5-6 young irish guys playing on an alleyway of the district. Their music started out like typical irish dancing music, but ...

... look at. We walked by the Dublin Spire. It is a huge tower in the middle of the city kind of. It is SUPER tall! It was a good landmark for us when we were trying to get back to the hostel. We seen Clergy's, which is like the Irish version of Macy's.
Before we headed to the castle for the tour, we found a guy dressed up in a leprechaun costume, and so a bunch of us got a picture with him.

... time to nap before we could board at 6:30am (but not before Jayde had a second boarding pass printed after losing the first one). We finally arrived in Dublin at 8am and caught a taxi to the hostel, but the taxi dropped us off at the wrong end of the street and we struggled to get to the other end, Chloe asking 3 hotels on the way. We couldn't check in until 2:30pm, but the reception team were so nice, they held our luggage downstairs ...

Laurie came back to London that night and we went to NHM next day then out in Angel. Another big one… Recovery was at Brick Lane the Sunday where I had some delicious food and did a bit of vintage festival clothing shopping. Also bumped in to Ging. Really nice to catch up with her and will ...
