Went for a birthday meal with the family. Nice place, reasonably easy to find, good car parking. Standard selection of beers and drinks, nothing out of the ordinary. Food was nice, pretty standard burgers, grills etc. Service was good, reasonably priced

Ordered room at this hotel. This hotel is placed central in Dublin due to shopping, Temple bar district, attractions and so on. Got a great room. Breakfast at the hotel is recommended. Much cheaper than order outside.
