Quick Stop

We are not really into the pub scene, but we just had to drop in and it was a worthwhile experience. The atmosphere was homely and welcoming and we enjoyed it.

We had a great deal due to booking.com and my bf and I had both been in Dublin before but this hotel was so great! The staff was always super nice and the breakfast (as for every german really important ;)) was more than just great. Furthermore the hotel holds a great bar with great live music every night. We...

Enjoyed a great meal here . Venue was spacious and clean. They do have live music but you need to reserve a table close to the stage. We were still able to enjoy the performance of traditional Irish dancing and music.

Lovely food, very good value for money. Very accommodating for large groups. Band that was on was very good and created a great atmosphere as were the Irish dancers.

Attended Celtic Night in November, 2016. We arrived half an hour earlier than scheduled and were turned away, saying "...we keep our schedule for a reason: to provide better service...". The truth is they let people in starting 6:30PM on every half hour and the only show starts at 8:30PM. My guess is they're trying to balance the number of... More

Bar itself had a great atmosphere because of the bands playing. Well worth checking out. Bar staff were pretty quick considering how busy it was on a Saturday night

We really enjoyed the show with the Irish Dancing and Singing. The dinner was ok. It was very dark in the room and would have enjoyed more if it was lit up a little more. All and all, it was worth the $51 for food and drink and the entertainment.

We booked the dinner and show at the Arlington Hotel on a friends recommendation. The hotel itself is ideally positioned for exploring the city. There was a less than warm welcome from the receptionist at check in, however, the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the remainder of the stay. The show and dinner were excellent.... More

Sure it's Temple Bar, so expect to pay a bit and expect a bit of noise. The hotel is located where all the action is. However, the room and bathroom were small and severely in need of a renovation. We stayed in May 2016, so perhaps some rooms have been renovated. Either way, our room was not. But, we're not... More

This is a great location for getting a feel of Dublin. Always something going on downstairs when you are not in the mood to venture into the city. Front staff was great. Super friendly. Literally the only bad thing I cold say and I know it will seem crazy but out shower curtain was WAY to small and the shower... More
