Whether you're arriving by car via the Dublin Port Tunnel, off the train from Connolly Station or by bus from Busáras, this Docklands hotel is just about the handiest in town. It's walkable from the last two, and, if you're feeling lazy, close to a LUAS stop for seamless city centre jaunts. The sparkly new Dublin Convention Centre, O2 Arena and Grand Canal Theatre are also within very easy walking distance. Inside, many rooms overlook the River Liffey, Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship and harp-like Samuel Beckett Bridge. And their contemporary decor, with cosy chairs and bed throws exude a homely air. The foyer-level continues the contemporary theme with its bar, cafe and restaurant. Payable breakfasts, wifi and nearby parking keep you in control of the cost.
