The noise was horrendous. From about 05.00 am I was aware of noises, banging, from about 06.00 - louder, shouting, deliveries etc. I would think. At 08.00 the noise from building works on roof across the alley from our room was awful. So we both attended our course feeling tired, with disruption to our sleep. Also, towel rack in our bathroom positioned over the toilet, the plaster work was all split, so I worried about that rack possibly falling. I would have thought that a maintenance person could have sorted that very quickly if advised by cleaning staff.
The friendliness of staff, quaint old Dublin Charm of hotel and rooms. Lovely breakfast with table service and a very helpful Dining Room Manager - who I felt added to the authenticity of a Dublin Hotel! Also enjoyed the Bar the previous night though the shutters came down early.
