Temple Bar Hotel
If you're intent on experiencing the nightlife, cultural goings-on, restaurants and bars in Temple Bar, you'll be staying in a fantastically convenient location when you choose the Temple Bar Hotel. In fact, there might not be a more ideal place in the entire city from which to explore, shop, eat, drink, and be generally merry.
Much of what the Irish capital has to offer is actually just a short stroll away, while everything else is within a single bus ride.
However it's the area itself that is the main attraction. Temple Bar has quickly built up a reputation for being one of the most-visited areas of the metropolis - many cafés, bars and restaurants will be vying for your custom before you've strolled 50 metres (about 150 feet for those of you who aren't fully au fait with the decimal system).
That said, you don't even have to leave the Hotel to get a refreshing beverage or a satisfying bit of nosebag. Under the same roof the ground-floor Whiskey Corner Bar & Restaurant features a dining area with a distinctive conservatory style that boasts a bright and welcoming atmosphere throughout the day and transforms into a candlelit bar with a soothing nighttime ambience. The bar and dining area offer a snug retreat away from the busy streets of Temple Bar - guests often find themselves lingering here while enjoying the company of the Hotel's humorous and charming staff.
This is where guests can also enjoy a full Irish or continental breakfast, and in the evening choose from a selection of dishes that are complemented by an extensive list of Ireland's finest whiskeys.
You can enjoy a somewhat livelier drinking environment in the adjacent Buskers Bar (along with tasty breakfasts or great bar food for lunch or dinner), plus the Alchemy Nightclub & Venue is right there alongside the Hotel for true creatures of the night.
As for the rooms, you won't be disappointed. Competitively priced and fabulously furnished, there are 130 in total and they spread out over four floors. Whether you choose Standard or Executive, the beds in both are exceptionally comfy, and the amenities are excellent (see full listing in 'Rooms' below). You can conveniently book your room at the Temple Bar Hotel through their own booking system.
'Room 134' located on the first floor of the hotel is the ideal room for any group or family looking to stay in the city centre. The room can sleep up to six people and comprises of four single beds and one sofa bed. It includes two showers, plenty of storage space and amenities such as two hair dryers, straightening tongs, complimentary Wi-Fi and a large flat screen TV. The room is also ideal as a Hen Den or Stag Pad, and for travelling groups of friends as a base of operations when enjoying all that Dublin has to offer.
And although a lift is available to all floors, a number of the Temple Bar Hotel's rooms have also been specially adapted for less mobile guests, so get in touch with hotel staff if you think these might be suitable for you.
Of course, even in a city as playful as this, business is also a large part of everyday life. And the Temple Bar Hotel has recognised this by installing some of the most complete conference and meeting room facilities in any Dublin city centre hotel which can cater for anywhere between 14 and 70 delegates.
