The only issue was noise from the street until the wee hours coming from the pubs, but they do warn you about that on their website.
The location of this hotel is awesome! For St. Patrick's Day, it's a half block away from Eyre Square and all the action. It's an easy walk to High Street, where all the cool shops are. The pub that's part of Eyre Square Hotel has excellent food and drinks, and there's an awesome little coffee house adjacent to the pub where you can get breakfast and/or lunch, and the best coffee ever! There is a cool little pub with live music right next door, and several other pubs within about a minute walk. It's only about a block from the bus station, making arrival and departure a breeze, as well as making it easy to come and go on tours and day trips.
