I only stayed here one night after a tour. It is right on the edge of north Dublin, so it is easy to walk to South and Temple Bar. It looked like there were a lot of bars around, and it is right next to a really good restaurant and bar (also owned by the hotel). Only complaint is that the room was small, but everything is small in Europe. Also, they made us leave a key every time we left, that is quite strange!
RUDE DO NOT STAY. Started off with the supposed free shuttle not picking us up from the airport. The staff were then quite unhelpful when we asked for a refund of our transfer to the hostel. Then the lady at the front desk was too busy on the phone to help us out with maps/directions/highlights of dublin. She shooed us away and told us that she was on the phone. Whenever we tried to approach her she was quite rude. I learned the value of customer service. The front desk soured our trip of dublin
We had a great stay at the Celtic Lodge. The staff was very friendly and gave us recommendations for an easy day trip outside of Dublin (Howth, Bray, Dalkeys) which was totally worth it and so beautiful. The Irish breakfast was delicious and the Celtic bar next door had great food and atmosphere as well. We would definitely stay here again!
I would have given all areas 100% but I was bothered by the way they handled their security. They have someone at the desk 24/7 and a buzzer to let in guests but they don't even look up when they buzz you in. You could be anyone! Also they make you leave your key at the front desk when you leave and give it back to you when you come back without even asking for your name. I could have taken anyone's key!
there is no lift to go to my room in 3rd floor. i would appreciate if there is someone able to carry my heavy lugggage to 3rd floor. breakfast is good and room condition is more than i expected

Wonderful hot breakfast included. Internet is available in the room for free. Lots of outlets. One note: room feels very small. Bed takes up majority of space Electric kettle w tea, coffee included in the room. Also a small tv is included (didn't use).
Lots and lots of stairs, no elevator. Nice staff. Clean rooms.
