This is a really nice well located central Dublin hotel. It has a fabulous Library Bar which should be famous in its own right. The rooms are pleasant with a modern en suite bathroom and good over-bath shower. There are heaps of eating places around but equally valuable are the two good food stores for when you just want to...

First trip to Ireland. Decided on Central Hotel in the Temple Bar area of Dublin. The hip, happening, busy part of Dublin...just perfect for 60 yr. olds!!! The hotel was lovely, and my husband said thank goodness for getting a hotel with a lift (elevator for us USA folks)! Our "suite" was spacious, large bath, nice updated amenities. Almost more...

A group of us stayed here recently, my parents stayed in the suite room and were woken at 5am to the noise of kegs being transferred to the bar. In the morning we requested if they could mind our bags behind the desk while we collected the car. We forgot something out of the bag and very politely asked if...

Centrally located Central Hotel in Dublin, Ireland is close to all of the things that you need to visit while vacationing. It is within walking distance to Dublin Castle, Temple Bar, Grafton Street, the Liffey River and bridges, Christ Church Cathedral, St. Patrick's and the best restaurants and pubs.

You come out of the hotel turn left, and walk 20 yards, you are met with the most gorgeous deli called Fallon & Byrne. Cross the road and dublins shops are all there to explore. The hotel was full...

We stayed at the Central for 7 nights. The room was clean and always plenty of fresh towels. Beds were fairly comfortable, if you like a firm matress. For the price this hotel lacks a lot of commodities. There is a restaurant on the 1st floor, but only open for breakfast from 7:00 to 10:30. The cost is 10 euros...

Great hotel, but if you have the chance, first see the room. I stayed here twice, same price more or less and the first time I had a rather huge room with a tub, the second time a small room with a shower. First was value for money, second overpiced. So check. But otherwise a good and friendly hotel in...

I had the pleasure to stay here 3 nights. Yes, room 412 was warm and dark, but very quiet and comfy! It's sooo central and has a fantastic staff. 'Everythig' is close by and you'll safe a lot in taxi fare. Will I stay here again? Autumn and Winter YES :-)

This is not a 5-star hotel. It is a good old-world European hotel in a great location. The room was small but functional. Extra pillows and blanket were in the room. We used both. Grocery, convenience store, pubs all nearby. Felt safe at all hours. Originally booked incorrect room type, then reduced by one night. Each time the booking was...
