Historical Traveler Reviews Clifton Court Dublin
Ok, so its basic to say the least but then what do you expect for the price? The Clifton Court is in a great location within stumbling distance of Temple Bar, walking distance to Grafton Street for shopping and just round the corner from O'Connell street where you can pick up the shuttle bus to the airport for around 6 euros and hop on the tour buses.
Granted the weather was fantastic during our all too short stay in Dublin so we didn't spend much time indoors but the hotel is a clean and safe place to make your base. The staff were warm, friendly and welcoming even at 3am when being cajolled to open the bar for four drunk English girls, (Ed and Paul, we are truly sorry, we promise to behave next time...!)
No, its not The Savoy but I for one can't wait to go back again!
Good location,comfortable bed.
I'd read reviews before going but decided to try it anyway.I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean,comfortable,smallish room with en-suite shower room which could have been bigger.Breakfast good[fullIrish].Staff helpful. Good location for transport and sights,On main road so quite a lot of traffic noise,bar below.I was on upper level so not really a problem.[Stairs to climb,no lift.]
Clifton Court has old world charm and great location
We were very pleased. It is small and you have to go up stairs to get to the hotel part of the building, but the staff was great and the location perfect. I would highly recommend it if you are willing to enjoying 'old world' inconveniences.
I was very shocked when I arrived at the 'Hotel' For a start it was half the size of the picture that was on the Net; myself and my boyfriend struggled to fit in the bedroom, plus we certainly didnt have a view overlooking the River Liffey, more like a building site out the back! I don't know how this could even be called a hotel. I've stayed in nicer Hostels! I'm actually thinking of sueing for false advertising so that no-one else can be conned by these people!!
Would I stay again?
NO!!!!!!!! We were part of a party of four. Two had okay rooms, 2 were very poor. River front view okay, if you get back of hotel - awful.
Hot, radiators falling off, loo didn't flush & very noisy. Staff friendly - some more helpful than others. To top it all off, they wanted to charge us £80 a night instead of the £40 we were quoted - RIP OFF!!!!!!!!!!!! Nightclub music can be heard till early morning. No good for kids.
Not recommended. The hotel was supposed to have been refurbished, however this consisted of the walls being painted a vile egg-yolk yellow and green, and the ancient furniture slapped with a layer of varnish. The hotel did not appear to own a vacuum cleaner as the carpets constantly seemed dirty. No overhead light in the room, the only light coming from a small bedside lamp and a dim wall light. The nightclub was really noisy until early hours, but as our room was on the 4th floor we didn't hear much of it, however there was a huge air-con fan directly outside our window which was enough to wake the dead and when the window was opened the room was filled with a vile chip-fat smell. The 'en-suite' is little more than a plumbed wardrobe and if you intend using the toilet while you are in Dublin, get used to sitting sideways on, because the tiny shower cubicle is so close to it that anyone over 5 foot tall will not be able to sit straight without hitting their knees on the shower cubicle which, incidentally does not have properly closing doors and requires an engineering degree to operate the shower temperature control (not an exaggeration!). Hotel does not have a lift which is a nuisance for people on top floors, does not have trouser press as stated, which is just as well because there would be no room for one, 2 out of 3 drawers in bedroom nailed shut (why???) breakfast mediocre, general demeanour: tatty, desperate for refurbishment, noisy. redeeming features: staff friendly, helpful and efficient, location good, clean sheets
Hotel !!!!!!! B&B with a bar more like
Having saw the mixed reviews on this site thought it best to see it for myself. The room whilst spacious reeked of cigarettes, which a squirt of an air freshener could have reduced. To get a remote for the tv was a deposit of 20 euro. The TV itself was not at all in tune and difficult to watch. The bathroom was very small and the shower unit tiny. Because of there only being a small extractor there was quite a lot of damp on the ceiling. If you are going to Dublin for sightseeing and not clubbing then this is not the hotel for you as it has a bar below it and a club below the bar thus the chances of getting to sleep before 4 are slim. Not sure what gives a hotel its status but this is at the lower level.
I found the staff helpful and the location was very good. The bedroom and small ensuite were clean. However the milk for the in-room tea and coffee was sour, and the service at breakfast was extremely slow and there was no choice of breakfast.
Spot on, no complaints at all. Friendly, clean and a cracking breakfast.Would go again any time
Worst Hotel ever stayed in
Hotel was dirty and the room barely bigger than the bed, OK if you like your room to vibrate with music from the bar below

... got us up the hill to St Patrick's cathedral which dates back to 445 but has been destroyed no less than seven times over the centuries and has now been restored. It was very beautiful inside, with lovely tile work, mosaics, rose marble columns and carved pews - but after a while ( and especially after looking in the gift shop) we realised that it was the not the one we were looking for - it was the Catholic cathedral! We were on a ...
Wow. I cannot believe that I am here in Dublin. We arrived at 5 am and waited around for the group flight to arrive at 8 am. We got a quick coffee and muffin, at what would've been midnight. This experience quickly reminded us that we were not in America anymore.
The group flight finally arrived and awkward first introductions began. We trekked pretty ...
... away. This was followed up by or they could have floated them up the river which was about 500m away. So in their minds the stone-age people were smart enough to have boats, but not smart enough to have the wheel or to ride horses. We also broke off some icicles which had formed on the outside of the tomb, they were about 10 cms in length which was a pretty good indication of how cold it was. The tour took about 1.5 hours plus ...
