In new ownership since 2015, this small family-run Dublin hotels been completely refurbished and has a stylish, boutique feel to it.
Located in a double-fronted Edwardian redbrick building on a pretty residential street lined with similar stately redbrick houses, it’s close to the city centre yet away from the hustle and bustle too.
There’s a small lounge for guests to relax in, complete with a cosy hearth, and the bar is popular with hotel guests and local residents alike, with live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
The bar also serves food and offers an extensive menu, or you can opt for the more formal Maples Bistro Restaurant.
The restaurant, also complete with fire, serves modern Irish food in a pleasant setting, with well presented tables and smart tableware. With a good wine list and attentive service from pleasant staff, a meal here should be a relaxing experience.
A function room is available as well, catering for 40 to 110 guests.
The 22 bedrooms are on the small side but are spotless, tastefully furnished and comfortable, with en suite bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryers and free wifi.
Conveniently located near the Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin Cemetery, Croke Park and Dublin City University, this is a comfortable, pleasant, well-priced place to stay.
