Located on O'Connell St (the main street in Dublin), this hotel is convenient and very nice. The staff was very helpful & courteous and the hotel is not expensive & is a great deal. We had a room in the new part of the hotel which is brand new and VERY nice! It's located deeper in the hotel so it's probably quieter than the older rooms which are closer to the main street. The older section is still pretty nice but try to ask for a room in the new section if you can. There is free WIFI or they give you an ethernet cord if your room is not yet equipped with WIFI. The room and bathroom was very spacious & clean. Overall, very nice hotel & I would definitely go back again!!

This is the third time we stayed here and it was a sgood, if not better, than ever. Although the decor in our room looked a little tired, it was still clean and if you are in Dublin and worried about decor, then I guess you haven't found all the wonderful things this fantastic city has to offer to tempt you from your room! The double room we had was spacious and clean with ample room for our storeage needs and with an in room safe as well. A nice touch that we did enjoy.

There is a slight niose from the main road that we could here from our room and one morning a delivery truck woke us, but we didn't here it again during our stay and we were here for a week. That said, the hotel was quite the rest of the time and we had no trouble sleeping.

Breakfast has a good selection of traditional Irish and Continental and the staff here were friendly and more than helpful. We also used the bar a couple of nights to get dinner and the daily specials were just right on portion and price and the meals were fantastic. The bar is very good as well and is a good place to stop by for a 'jar' when there are a few people around. Here again, as with the hotel in general, the staff are friendly and efficiant.

The hotel is just two blocks from the airport bus stop on O'Connell St and is well placed for all the attractions in this part of the city. The tram stop is 5 mins away and is a good way to see some of the city. Taxi's are plentyful and the cab rank, if you don't want to get the front desk to get the cab for you, is just a couple of minutes away. Dublin has one eighth of the population of Manhatten and about three times as many cabs, so you won't have to wait very often for your taxi.

We like this hotel and will be back next time we are in town. Well positioned, near to good bars and restaraunts and conveinient for public transport, you could do a lot worse. It is probably one of the cheapest hotels in this part of town and I would be happy to recommend it to you.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Cassidy's from Dec 6-13, 2008 and enjoyed our stay. The room was very large with a double bed and a single bed, and lots of space to store our belongings. The safe in the room was great, as we didn't worry about leaving our passports and other important things behind while we were out touring for the day.

There were 2 things that we disliked, but we didn't let it ruin our vacation. When we checked in, we were told that we had been placed in the executive wing, which we thought was good. Well, the executive wing does not connect to the lobby of the hotel. In order to get to our room, we had to go through the lobby and all the way to the back of the hotel, get on an elevator to the basement, through the basement, which is under construction, to another elevator and then up to the first floor. It was a bit of a pain, but by the end of the trip we were used to it and it became a bit of a joke that we had to travel through the 'bat cave'. An upside to this was that it seemed we were the only people in this part of the hotel, so it was very quiet. Second, the shower was brutal. It was just a shower stall, which we have no issues with, however there was no ledge around the bottom of the shower to keep the water in. So everytime we showered, we had to place a towel on each side of the shower to soak up the water. If we didn't, the water would run all over the bathroom floor and we would risk killing ourselves when we got out. That being said, the housekeeping staff was excellent - we always had more than enough towels to dry ourselves and the floor, and we got clean towels everyday. Even the day we forgot to turn off the do not disturb light, they put all the towels in a bag and hung them on the doorknob for us. There was no counterspace in the bathroom, so all toiletries had to go back in our suitcases when we were done. That wasn't very functional, but its manageable. Overall, I thought the room was very nice and clean and the bathroom was nice and clean as well.

The breakfast in the restaurant was good. We never had to wait more than a few minutes to be seated, never encountered cold food, and rarely encountered the buffet empty of food. The only thing we didn't like was the buffet was offered for a few days, and then it was menu style for a few days, and then back to the buffet. Both of us preferred the buffet. The other down side was there was no pork while we were there, but that was not the hotels fault as there was a ban on pork while we were on vacation.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel, and I would surely recommend it or return if we are ever back in Dublin.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Cassidys Hotel. The hotel is in a great location with very friendly staff. Arrived at 8:45am in the morning and we were allowed to check in and go to our room. The rooms are more than comfortable enough and the full Irish breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.
If you want to catch the Dublin bus from the airport to the hotel (either No 16a or 746), the bus stop is only 50yds away from it.
As someone who always want to go to Dublin I was shocked on how dear it is to dine out and drink in Dublin. Evening meals are 25 euros and over, house wine is 25 euros a bottle and drinks in bars are extortionate. I was looking forward to listening to and singing along to traditional Irish songs but could not afford to drink in the bars. As Dublin in terms of architecture and riverside culture is very poor, unless you are going there on business I wouldn't bother. An Irish newspaper in the hotel reported thast Dublin was dearer to visit than New York, London, Rome, Madrid and Barcelona and was among the top dearest citiies in the world. So be warned

This hotel is located in a central location at the top of O'Connell street and is a good base for sightseeing in the expensive city of Dublin. The staff are very efficient and helpful. Buffet style breakfast at 15 Euros per person was not good value. Our room on the second floor was like a sauna.. Even with the radiators turned off and the windows open the temperature did drop below the late seventies at night which made sleeping nearly impossible. The problem was the exposed piping which was so hot you could not touch it. Air conditioning would have helped. . We were offered a fan but this did very little to cool it down. On the plus side a nice bathroom, a kettle with free coffee and a trouser press. However with the extreme heat in our room we would not recommend or return.
