This is our third trip to Dublin this year. We tried another hotel near Temple Bar, but returned to the Croke because it's newer, cleaner and quiet. It's about a 20 minute walk to Temple Bar area or 5 - 6 Euros by taxi, which is well worth it and about 20 Euros to the airport. During summertime I would definitely go with this hotel because it has nice air conditioning. Another plus that the other hotel did not have was wi-fi in the room at no additional cost. Also, the staff was very accommodating and also gave us bottled water when we checked out. I will probably return again next year and will book my stay at this hotel.
We booked the executive room on the top floor. The hotel is right across the street from Christ Church Cathedral and Dublina. The Airlink 737 bus stops are around the corner. It takes you directly to Dublin's airport. 10euros round trip. Temple bar is only minutes away on foot. Some people may complaint about the bell from the church. But the hotel has double windows to block the noise. Hey. This is a city. The noise and excitement is part of the experience. Like many other European's hotels , there was no Air conditioning . But it was fairly cool when we visited in mid October. I would stay here again . The staffs were fantastic.
Great breakfast spread! Cheaper if you pay ahead for it. Great dinner too. Right on the main road straight to the heart of the city. Super helpful staff. Clean, neat room. Great hot water in shower. Very quiet. No pub or bar noise. Would definitely stay here again!
We had a great 2 night stay... close to everything, within walking distance to bars and shopping, we liked the size of the room and the staff were very pleasant. It was our honeymoon and they surprised us with 2 plates of cheese, crackers and fruit. It was delicious and a nice treat!
Great hotel in a great location. Very easy to find and only a short walk into where the action is. Staff were friendly and check in was very smooth and straight forward. The room was very neat, clean and well equipped. A smart looking bathroom with a powerful shower (very important). Would recommend to all!
