Best value/Great Location
My wife and I spent 16 nights at the Days Inn Talbot St. from 4/11-4/27/05.
We booked it based on Trip Advisor reviews!
Given the $vs. Euro differences it was a real bargain.
The room was small and there is very limited storeage space BUT the room was immaculate, well serviced and very quiet at night considering we fronted on Talbot. Only on Sat. night could we hear the exiting "pub crawlers."
The location is superb for exploring all the highlights of Dublin. Connelly Station is 4 blocks away.
Don't be put off by the entrance. It's all uphill from there. The staff is exremely accomodating and helpful. There is a nice guest lounge on the 1st floor(that's #2 to us Americans).
An easy place to stay if you're there to see Dublin and Ireland.

Not bad for the price...
The Days Inn in Dublin was a pretty good deal for us (59 Euro/night). The room has everything you need & the breakfast is pretty good (9.50 Euro for Full Irish Breakfast though). You couldn't pick a better place for the price if you want to be in the middle of Dublin, however, it is in the middle of Dublin so there's lots of noise. I wouldn't recommend this place if you need to sleep & relax -- there's lots of hollerin' & singing in the streets by pubcrawlers at night, but you'll pretty much have that at any of the hotels in Dublin anyways.
Not bad at the price
The room I was in (303) had twin beds pushed together, it was basic but clean and tidy. I paid 59 euro for a single room so was happy with the large bed.
The only internal problems were, unmovable shower heads, diminshing water from the shower when the neighbouring room occupant used his/her water supply.
On checkout the receptionist wanted to charge me for two breakfasts (I hadn't had breakfast at all), but they didn't make a song and dance about removing the charge from my bill.
External problem(s), they are digging up the entire road. No cars can gain access at all. Pavements are restricted by high fences lining the road. One lone builder with a dumper truck was working until midnight. Hammer drills until 8/9pm.
I would stay here again if I could obtain the same price or equivalent.
Good points are walk out of the front door turn left and the Spire is at the end of the street.
Although the hotel is very conveniently located it was difficult to access by taxi as the road outside was closed off due to utility refurbishment. It is small, friendly and inexpensive. If you are looking for a no frills hotel (the rooms are small and the shower isn't the best) this could be for you. Plain but very filling breakfast.
Great Location, OK rooms
We stayed at Days Inn in August. The room was clean, though small even by European standards. The location is great for exploring Dublin, and the prices were reasonable.
Great place to stay while in Dublin
My girlfreind and I were there for 8 days, since 3rd of August.
It's a nice, clean place located in city centre.
Beds are great and it's quiet so you can sleep after a long city tour. Breakfasts are ok, you won't be hungry for some time.
Staff is friendy and very helpful.
It's a great place since it's located near O'Connell St. (about 10min walk to famous Grafton St.)and main train and bus station (but don't think this make extra noise, as I said - it quiet an comfortable).
My warmest recommendations!
spent five days here good rates mid week room very small and shower room tiny cleaning quite good breakfast good our room was on the front the noise was really bad especially early morning do not phone from here we paid 20 euros for a few minutes talk to home there is no bar here so take in your own booze as it is very expensive to buy at off licence the no smoking ban in the pubs are just stupid one day we were the only two in a pub which was normally busy and by the way i`m a non smoker so pick carefully
Good value for money (but watch the telephone charges)
Excellent value for money (for the midweek rate that I got). Room small but comfortable. Very central location.One major thing to watch - they tried to charge me 30 euros for 30-min dial-up to local ISP. Real cost is about 1c a minute, and even with big hotel mark-up it should only be 1 or 2 euros. When I objected, they gave me 60% off and promised to look into it.
Convenient, quiet, and friendly
The Comfort Inn on Talbot Street in Dublin is located only two blocks from bustling O'Connell Street and the Liffey River (and the Spire). It is a short walk to the Connolly Rail Station and the City Bus Station, making all parts of Ireland easily accessible from this location. The hotel is your typical Comfort Inn quality, clean - not too fancy. We have stayed in a family room three different times here and found the room to be large. The only really complaint we had was low water pressure, but we found that to be true throughout the island. Breakfast was delicious and the surrounding area has a number of nice Italian restaurants. There is a very small car park behind the hotel, but if you're coming to Dublin - I'd try to do it without a car if possible.
Rent the car only on the days you are out of Dublin. Enjoy!
This Comfort Inn was in a great location to get to all the sites of Dublin and a pretty good price. The staff was friendly and helpful.
However, it was located on a noisy street and the first morning we were there there was no hot water. I also got the feeling it was not that clean. We stepped out of our room for a short time in the morning and when we returned, it was already put back together. I don't think enough time was spent in there that it could have possibly been cleaned well.

... us were trying to stay warm outside, at the top of the City with an amazing view, except it was a bummer that the rain, wind, and fog made it hard to see. Regardless it was still amazing. We had to make it back down the hill to the bus (in separate groups) the wind was really heavy and the rain as well, so going down the hill was rough, but a fun adventure! You had to be very careful not to slip (as many people did), and if you looked up, ...
We didn't get back until late last night, so you're getting the blog this morning.
We started the crawl by meeting at Oliver St. John Golgarty's pub in Temple Bar district. I was worried that the rest of the crawl would be like this place: loud, crowded and hot. Fortunately we immediately moved to a "traditional" pub down the street. We had a private room just for the crawl. There were 2 musicians that lead us around. Booster played ...
... Belfast was because it would cause trouble in the Protestant section driving the bright green bus through it, because of how 'Irish' it looked. We were picked up in the main square and headed straight over to the Protestant section. We stopped in Protestant/unionist/pro-Britain section first and walked around one of the blocks that has a lot of murals relating to their views on the problem between the Irish and the British. The taxi driver told us a bit about the history here and ...
