      Historical Traveler Reviews Paramount Hotel Temple Bar Dublin

      Possibly the best hotel for Temple Bar


      This was really worth every penny spent. Very helpful staff even before arriving there, as the advice to get to the hotel was spot on. Got there too early, but immediately offered to look after the luggage. Temple Bar is on the doorstep of the hotel and within 10 minutes, you can reach Grafton Street, O'Connell Street, Ha'Penny Bridge, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College, National Museum and pretty much all the the must-see areas of Dublin. Dublin Castle is right outside the door as is City Hall and there is a real great selection of food and drink establishments in the vicinity. Breakfast included (The Full Irish is not to be missed) and any member of staff spoken to was polite, friendly and courteous. Stay here and you'll not be disappointed!!!!!

      Exactly What We Were Looking For


      The Paramount is a fun, stylish hotel right in the center of everything. We are two gals in our late 20's who went to Dublin to relax, drink some beer, and take it all in, and the Paramount was the perfect place for us...right in the Temple Bar area. As we were out every night until the pubs closed, the noise from the late bar below never affected us. The room was nice and clean, and they had tea, coffee, and cookies for us every morning in the room. The bathroom was very large and had convenient counter space for 2 girls and all our junk...and the shower was literally the BEST shower I have ever taken in my whole life. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we were able to get a good rate (less than $100 a night) even though we stayed during the month of July and over a weekend. I would definitely recommend The Paramount if you are young, like to be out late, and want to be in the hipster area of Dublin. I would absolutely stay there again.

      Not impressed


      I stayed in this hotel in Autumn 2003 during a visit to Dublin with my boyfriend. The shower was broken in the room we were given and was not fixed till the next morning as the hotel repair guy had already gone home for the day. They offered us another room but it was a twin bedded room which was right overlooking Temple Bar, and was very noisy so we passed the offer. The room was very cramped and had been advertised as having a king size bed, when really it was just two single beds zipped together. Not very comfortable at all.

      On the plus side, it was very central and the breakfast was really nice, but there are plenty of other hotels in the same area for the same price, which are of higher standard. Overall I'd had to say I wouldn't recommend it.

      Liked the Paramount


      The location of the Paramount was great for seeing Dublin - it's just down from Dublin Castle in the middle of Temple Bar. The rooms were nice, very calming colour scheme, a good size and the shower was powerful. My only complaint is that the floor we were on was noisy very early in the morning with other guests knocking on people's doors and talking throught doors! The reception area was a bit small but it did the job.

      Noise - What Noise????


      I checked this site after I had booked and confirmed my stay in the Paramount Hotel. And to say I was a little anxious after reading the reviews was an understatement. But to be totally honest I really don't know what hotel they stayed in because I found the hotel to be lovely and comfortable - the staff were really friendly - and I had no problem going to sleep at all - I had a room which over looked a quiet street and there was hardly any noise at all. I think the other reviews may have stayed in the hotel during very busy weekends is Dublin and to blame the hotel for what is happening on the streets outside is unfair. Also a little note for future travelers who may be worried about noise, the Paramount is not right in the middle of Temple Bar - but there are ones which are so I recommend this one so you are not right in the middle of the action - just in case you do stay on a busy weekend.

      Right in the centre of the city


      i spent a fantatstic weekend in this hotel with my partner, it was all i was looking for in a busy hotel right in the centre of temple bar.

      the staff were friendly and knew the best places to go for a evening out and if you didn't fancy moving too far, the hotel had their own busy nightclub which at times were right up our street!the breakfast the hotel provided was good - if you want to stay in a livily place right in the centre of the city, this is the place to stay!

      Bad Management


      My wife and I stayed at this Mess they call a Hotel, its really a glorified Pub and Nite Club. The noise was so bad that we could not sleep, the room was tatty and when complained to the manageress Ms Barcoe, she was rude. Avoid is my advice. This Hotel should not be called a Hotel.

      You may as well sleep on the streets


      This hotel should be a 1 star hotel selling for under $50 a night. The noise from outside is as if a Mariachi band were literally playing at your bedside. I didn't sleep for 4 days! I realize this is located in the "lively" Temple Bar area, but this was nuts.

      Excellence is Paramount


      If your looking for a hotel in Dublin look no further. I searched for weeks for a good value hotel in heart of Dublin without bed bugs. I found the paramount hotel. They could not do enough to help. From a free early checkin to left luggage facilities. The price was fantstic (100euro per nite)and came complete with in room breakfast and the decor was so calming and comforting. A shower to die for it felt like you was being hugged and kissed all over. Just have a look at their website and try it. Its fantastic. Forget the Morrison.

      Be Warned


      Well furnished bedrooms, but be warned, this hotel has single glazed rooms, paper thin walls so you can hear the noise/talk/television of your neighbours and is situated in the very noisy Temple Bar area of Dublin. There is a nightly disco thumping out techno disco beat music that goes on until 03.00am. This, together with the noise of the parties on the streets outside makes it impossible to sleep in this hotel if you are a light sleeper or requiring a good nights sleep before a business meeting. You might just as well take your matress out onto the pavement!

      ... br> We stowed our luggage at our hotel and walked down Dame Street as the city was just waking up from the previous night's revelries. It seemed that the only people on the sidewalks were the street cleaners and fellow American tourists who had arrived about the same time as us. It is hard getting used to the traffic on the "wrong" side of the road, so Tom thinks he should be excused for pulling Vivian into the path of an oncoming double-decker bus. Vivian disagrees.

      ... We left the bus in O'Connell Street and after having coffee, we made our way, on foot, to Trinity College, where the the Book of Kells is housed. This is a collection of illuminated mediaeval manuscripts, depicting the four Gospels of the Bible, dating back to the 9th Century. There were two sections on display, under glass. It is amazing how bright the colours have remained in the intricate embellishment of the calligraphy. The Celtic script is so neat ...

Thinking about renting a bike or car to visit the country sights up there, like the giant causeway. Hopefully I can sort something out!! If not a tour bus will do, I just really miss driving myself places. Hard to believe I've already been gone a month and been to 7 countries already! Well anyway here's the ...

To be honest, our house has gotten a bit messy but we are actually scheduled for a house cleanup tonight after school so that is something to (not) look forward to. But once again the cleanup will be worth it in the end. This past week was uneventful. Busy but uneventful. Highlights included FaceTime with my family ...

      ... city center is basically the equivalent of our downtown.

      We walked over to Bobo's Restaurant which has been voted to have Dublin's best burgers on a number of occasions. It's a neat little diner type of restaurant and the burger's do live up to the reputation they've received. It was delicious. Kara had just a regular bacon and cheeseburger in a lettuce wrap instead of a bun. I on the other hand tried something a little more adventurous getting the Colm ...
