... whites haven't reached there yet. This British muzungu experienced being accepted into the tribe and taken care of like she was family. What made me sad is that I didn't experience that, or at least not in that obvious a way. The people I met were incredibly friendly and loving and I had some experiences, particularly in Fort Portal, of being taken in as one of the family. But much of the time, I felt that I had to watch out for myself much more than usual and that I was an outsider who ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCassidys Hotel Dublin
This was not my favorite hotel on this trip. That being said, it was a great location, the room was clean and the staff the friendliest we encountered in Ireland. I suspect there is remodeling going on and we just got one of the rooms that is still waiting. The biggest issue was the bathroom. Though clean, the shower was downright weird. The shower curtain didn't reach all the way to the floor, so the water splashed out all over the bathroom floor. The couple we were with did not have this issue which is what made me think this room still needs to be update.
We had a very early departure - 5:30am - and they had breakfast foods out for us when we arrived in the lobby. Because of the great service and cleanliness I gave this hotel 4 stars, only deducting 1 star for the funky shower which hopefully is soon to be remedied, if it isn't already.

Historical Traveler Reviews Cassidys Hotel Dublin
We booked this after reading other reviews here & agree with the positive comments. A great hotel for its class & price (we paid a winter special rate), the rooms were pleasantly decorated and very cheerful. Breakfast was of good quality but not much choice for veggies. Fairly good location situated at the top end of O Connell St & about a five-ten minute walk to Grafton St./ Temple Bar area. All the staff were very friendly & helpful, we were allowed to check in on arrival from the airport mid-morning. I would recommend this hotel.
Cassidy's Hotel - A true gem!!
We stayed at the Cassidy's Hotel from January 16th to 19th 2004. I have to say that for price and location this hotel is superb! All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was spotless and well cleaned and stocked each day. The 'Restaurant 6' is excellent for evening dining and the full Irish help yourself breakfast is fantastic. The bar is large enough to have a good atmosphere and small enough for a quiet drink - this also closes at 1.30am, so you can make sure you have a good night! All in all, you can't go wrong here - great location at the top of O Connell St, 15 mins walk to Grafton St and Temple Bar. I would suggested you seriously consider this hotel.
Very much enjoyed our stay at this warm and cosy hotel. Centrally situated,it is an ideal location for tourists visiting Dublin. Friendly service, cosy bar with excellent professional and friendly barstaff more than willing to help us with queries, questions etc. Highly recommended.
Great Hotel, Stunning Food!
The hotel was in a good location with all areas accessible on foot or by the local buses, which stopped just yards from the front door.
Parking might be a problem as the car park was small and filled up quickly. The food in the hotel restaurant was superb quality, as was the included breakfast. This wasn't your usual bowl of cornflakes either, it was the full cooked plateful which you could help yourself too. The staff were friendly and helpful and all in all for the money we paid I don't think we would have found another hotel this good!!!
Would definitely recommend it.
Hotel was a 5 minute walk from the city centre and close to the bus stops for the 'Hop on, Hop off' tours of Dublin. The rooms were large enough and comfortable. The staff were helpful and our stay at the hotel was a good one. Car parking could be a problem as they have limited car parking.
I chose Cassidys after having read visitors' comments on TripAdvisor, so I wanted to add my own after our vacation. Cassidys isn't badly priced for Dublin, which is, in my opinion, overpriced. We found staff both helpful and unhelpful. The lobby and bar were nice, our room large but a little tacky. What took us aback was finding hairs on the sheets--of both beds. The maids missed our room altogether the next day though they took a long time talking loudly in the hallway. We had the sense that we were not entirely safe in the hotel ("watch your belongings" reminders are placed throughout the bar, but this matched our general sense that we were not safe in Dublin, which seemed to be filled with drunken, down-and-out lost souls.
Cassidy's was a terrific surprise. After booking the hotel through the internet (@ 80 euros/night vs. the standard 150 euro rate), I arrived in Dublin on May 8. The Air Coach bus (don't take a taxi), left me off right in front of the hotel. The staff was excellent and the room was surprisingly large and clean. The included breakfast was very good. Most importantly, the staff did all they could to make my stay at this centrally located hotel a great experience for this first time Dubliner.
Loved Cassidys hotel Dublin
This is a terrific hotel, it is within walking distance of most attractions, the staff were polite and helpful and the room was really comfortable. Bar food and breakfast were great A++++
A retreat but in the city
I found the atmosphere at Cassidy's welcoming, friendly and safe. The location whilst slightly north of the more popular parts of the city makes for a relaxing stay with all the action within 5-10 minutes walk. The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff helpful. The hotel management and staff are to be commended.
A Place to Stay in Dublin
I recently stayed here and the food was great. The staff were all polite friendly and very helpfull. The hotel itself was very clean and tidy and is situated at the start to O'Connell Street as you come into it from the airport and is within walking distance of everything you want to see I would personnaly reconmend this hotel to anyone the price of the rooms was also reasonable and included full b/fast.
