I would recommend this hotel to others if all you are looking a relaxing weekend and some shopping, with Liffey Valley shopping centre a five minute walk from the hotel which also houses a cinema, steak house, pizza hut and an old style american diner. Right next to hotel is a restaurant called the Lemongrass serving asian cusine. Also a restaurant/bar called the ARC which i would highly recommend eating there although paying slightly more than average the food was fantastic.
What disappointed me was when booking the hotel, I was under the impression that the hotel was a five minute taxi ride away to the centre of Dublin is was possibly more a 15 minute journey. I was also not aware there are 3 tariffs for taxis, and after 8pm it is automatically the top tariff, and also a sunday is top tariff all day.
