City center hotel with an Irish luau
The Arlington's O'Connell Bridge location sets itself apart from the pack with a unique Irish luau--a nightly three-course meal with Irish dancing show. The rooms have recently been renovated and have modern, clean lines. Tourists mix with locals at the medieval Knightsbridge Bar inside the hotel. The Knight's Bistro keeps the medieval theme alive and offers live music nearly every night. Guests find just as much entertainment outside the hotel as inside. The Arlington is right on the River Liffey and steps from the heart of Dublin nightlife.

  • Lively bar and restaurant featuring carvery service
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi in every room

The hotel is in an excellent location

The hotel is in an excellent location with the Dublin Tour Bus stop outside the front door. Our room was a good size, clean, and had a king size bed, though not much of a view. We enjoyed an excellent full breakfast each morning of our four night stay at a cost of E10 per person (continental breakfast was available at E7.50). We would definitely recommend this hotel and will be more than happy to stay there again if we make a return visit to Dublin.

The Arlington is in a great location,

The Arlington is in a great location, however, on arrival, the staff at the counter were very unfriendly and not helpful at all - sometimes just a smile would help travel weary guests. Quite pricey for what the Hotel offered- but the facilities don't matter that much when you just want to get out and enjoy all that Dublin has to offer. The woman who was in charge of the dining room at breakfast was wonderful and just watching her at work - talking to guests and making people feel welcome was a huge contrast to the front counter staff. Very noisy at night with Irish singing and dancing downstairs most nights until midnight and horrible disco Friday and Saturday night which kept me awake until at least 2am.

The location was excellent HOWEVER

The location was excellent HOWEVER our room was directly over the bar with very loud music until the early hours and you could hear every word of the songs. If you can sleep through this sort of noise (or be guaranteed a room on a higher floor) then it is perfect!

Dublin

We arrived before check in time of 2pm, and they were able to accomodate us as soon as rooms were clean. This was an excellent location. There didn't seem to be air conditioning, but it was ok because the weather was cool. There was a very nice pub on the bottom floor with great live music and a free Irish dancing show.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the Dublin bus to and from the airport. It was only 2.50 Euro per person. This was a great alternative to the Airlink which was 6 Euro each. It's a much cheaper alternative if you do not have have a lot of baggage.

Really good location. Nice and helpfull staff. Big rooms, but no fridge and no air conditionned, so you have to choose between fresh air in summer and silence, as the surroundings of the hotel are really noisy.
