Hooray for Temple Bar

I chose to book the Arlington because of it's location and frankly, it's cute. I can't speak to the bar or food, as we didn't eat or drink in the hotel bar, but when we got back to the room after going out for dinner, the bar was quiet and did not disturb our sleep. A car alarm on the street did, but obviously that's not something the hotel can control. The room was quite warm, so we slept with the window open, but other than that it was quite comfortable. It is close the The Temple Bar, where we had dinner and drinks. It's also an easy walk to Trinity College, where we spent our morning before checking out and heading to the airport to catch our flight. The bus stop to get back to airport was an easy walk as well, and then about a 30 minute ride to the airport. We left Dublin wishing we had more time to spend there.

Great Location

You can't beat the location! Walking distance to most of the sites, restaurants, bars, and bus stops. No frils hotel, but it did the trick. We felt safe and comfortable during our stay.
