    Everything! Honestly, this was quite possibly the best hotel/inn I've ever stayed in. Perfect location (above a bar in the heart of Dublin), the kindest staff, the cleanest rooms, an excellent bathroom (especially for Europe), and an overall friendly vibe. I was so impressed that I immediately called my grandparents and told them they MUST stay there on their next trip.

    Absolutely nothing - it was perfect.

  • Group of friends

    Fantastic location if you want to be in the centre of the nightlight of Dublin and within easy walking distance of shopping centres. Food in the pub downstairs is excellent and staff very friendly.

    Do not stay here if you want to go to bed early as Temple Bar does not go quiet till about 3.00 am. Only concern about this hotel was that when we arrived they did not have our booking and said that we could only stay one night. They then managed to accommodate us for our whole stay so recommend that you check direct with the hotel that they have your booking.

  • Couple

    The hotel was easy to find and the bar was brilliant. The staff were all friendly and the room was very clean.

    It was a bit noisy because of the location

  • Single

    Well appointed rooms. comfortable bed. Great Shower. Great location if you want to experience the Temple bar area - however keep in mind that this means it may be loud during the night.

  • Single

    Great people , great location , friendly

    If you can't lug a suitcase up stairs or expect to be asleep by midnigt , this is not your place , not an issue for me

  • Group of friends

    The room decor was cool, very modern. The room also had a great view of the street. The bartender/hotel staff went completely out of his way to help us too.

  • Group of friends

    Really nice, modern rooms with lots of space. Team was really impressed and had that wow factor. Lots of smiley faces from the team - we booked all 5 rooms. There's some street noise but you don't come here to catch up on sleep.

    A few dubious people hanging around the hotel side entrance - but no issues.

  • Group of friends

    The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. They even worked with other hotels in the area. Very friendly and appreciating of us staying their. The location was the best spot for theTemple Bar area. The prices were very good and the quality of room we stayed in was extremely good with awesome showers. Deklen and Billy were oustanding host. Really made me feel at home. The music and food downstairs was outstanding. A great place to hang out during the day and evening hours.

  • Single

    With its location right in the middle of Temple Bar, I would recommend a stay here if you are visiting Mon-Thurs night and are going to be out and drinking until 2-3am. Do not consider staying here otherwise, live music in all the surrounding pubs 7 nights per week. We stayed on a Weds night and were out drinking until 2am and therefore asleep immediately so noise didn't bother me but I guess it would be horrendously noisy at the weekend. This would be a nightmare of a hotel if you expect to go to bed early and try to get any sleep. Also managed to get a deal for £60 per night rather than £140 it should have been, certainly wouldn't pay any more than this.

    Hotel was fine for our needs but although location is excellent if out drinking until late, would not recommend it if looking for a quiet, relaxing break.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel was within easy reach of everything. Plenty to see and do and not too much walking.

    We found the room stuffy and the windows could not be opened. The only venitlation was the bathroom fan or leaving the door ajar.

  • Couple

    The room looks nice, good bed and shower.

    The hotel is located above a pub with live music every evening and next to a night club. If you would like to get some sleep in Dublin during the night, you better could go for a different hotel.

  • Group of friends

    Excellent location for night life e.g pubs

  • Older travelers

    We completely loved staying at Farringtons!! The staff was fantastic and the room was amazing. I cannot believe how nice the room was for it being such an old building. The location was perfect, right in the middle of Temple Bar and withing walking distance of the entire city! We will definately stay here again next time we are in Dublin! It was a bit noisy, but we can sleep thru anything...and what do you expect, it's over a fantastic bar!

  • Older travelers

    Rooms were excellent, very comfortable and stylish. Staff very friendly.

    Did have to walk up a couple of flights of stairs so not suitable if disabled. Not very obvious when arrived that there was accommodation as it was a pub downstairs. Very noisy at night

  • Couple

    The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was very clean with a great shower in the bathroom with toiletries supplied. The hotel itself is right in the heart of the Templebar area where there are many pubs and clubs and restaurants etc. Although we were doing a bit of partying ourselves, we had worried that maybe we would be kept awake all night which wasn't the caseat all. I would have no hesitation in reccomending this hotel at all for its location to the nightlife area, its staff and the clean and comfortable rooms. We have in fact made another booking for the end of the month for a two night stay with the same hotel and we are really looking forward to it.
