This may be a nice place to stay--my family and I will never know. We booked a trip to Ireland. We booked some nights at this Inn and accepted that due to popularity that we would accept the Inn's demand for payment in advance to secure the reservation. Then, because of Covid, we had to cancel our trip. Subsequently, we received refunds from other hotels and all the airlines involved--except for the Norseman. They allowed only credit--a very specific credit option to stay at that particular Inn. My advice is only to not pay in advance if you decide to stay here. It may be a nice place...

We were there at noon on March 15, 2020 and overheard the owners and staff discussing shutting down all the bars due to corona virus. We had a drink and walked back to out air bnb to figure out how to get back to the US while we still could. So sad as it seemed like a fun place and we were looking forward to spending St Pats Day in Dublin. We shall return.

We visited the bar and there was live music playing. Great place with a vibrant atmosphere. The bar service was a bit slow but the place was packed full. I recommend for a late afternoon/early evening out for drinks.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were well sized, clean and secured with 2 keypad codes. As an American I would equivocate it to sleeping on top of Bourbon Street in New Orleans. If you want to be right were the action is, it is the place to be. If you want someplace quieter to rest, I would look for another location.

Your basic generic irish pub in temple bar able to charge over the odds due to the area it was in. A good point is that it dos offer live music. I would probably not go back to this bar if i was in Dublin in the future, not the cheeriest of staff either.
