We only stayed here for one night but for the life of me, I can't figure out why the Irish Hotel Assoc. gives this property four stars. The rooms are nice, the people helpful but the amenities are few. No pool, jacuzzi, gym, business center, practical gift shop or spa facilities are either on site or available. While we were there, the nice restaurant, Jules, was not open. The Baileys Bar was sufficient for pub grub and drinks but that was about all. The Barista Bar was great for lunch, surprisingly tasty and good food.
The front desk computer was terribly slow, so much that it couldn't print out directions to the Dublin Airport. Our receipt for expenses paid was completely unreadable on the right hand side due to printer malfunctions. And don't even try to use the pay by the second internet connection in the lobby, it is slower than a 240 baud modem! That particular annoyance cost me 6 euro just to print out our boarding passes!
You can get a voucher for wi-fi in your room or use of a leisure club down the street a bit. The breakfast was something we never got to try because we had to leave the hotel at a very early hour but they did prepare a small continental breakfast for us (at 4:00 am) to eat in the lobby lounge. They were also very good with the 3:30 am wake up call.
I was completely satisfied with what we had but was underwhelmed with the offerings available.

... social media, the Sport Management group split from the AT group and we got to take a tour of Aviva stadium. Aviva was made back in 2010 and is one of the best stadiums in the world. The design was awesome and the field was in beautiful shape. Notre Dame actually played navy at Aviva back in 2012. Aviva was an awesome experience and by far the best stadium I have been ...
... up basically non-existent anymore. After waiting about 30min for Max (because we both got lost) we eventually found the starting pub as we were checking in Max realised he'd left his I.D at his hostel, Yep, he had to go back and get it.
Whilst waiting for him to come back, I met two other Aussies, one who was on holidays and one who had just moved to Edinburgh, they seemed like good guys typical Australia guys ...
... dessert? HEAVEN. Hazelnut cheesecake with fresh Irish cream and raspberry drizzle. It was so damn delicious I even allowed Lare to include this hideous picture of me so you could vicariously enjoy it, too.
At the end of our meal, we succumbed to trying a raisin scone as well, with fresh butter, cream and strawberry jam. Oh. my. God.
On the Barrista Lunch Menu Board, the Beef Lasagne, ...
... of yore, which rotates clockwise as it goes up. About the only place spiral staircases are found today is generally in lofts; designed to save space. But while they may be an efficient way to eliminate encumbered square footage, as anyone who has ever negotiated one knows, they are a nuisance to climb up and down multiple times a day. Defense and safety, however, were the premier concerns of castle builders, not efficiency of space or nuisance avoidance. ...
... narrow little lanes Steve negotiated, this was a breeze. We drove right across Ireland from Galway to Dublin in under 3 hours.
We found the Hilton near the airport and unloaded the car. Then Steve arranged to follow the hotel shuttle bus over to the Hertz place at the airport. The guy was just great. He ...
