Not far from Trinity College and St Stephen's Green, the Mont Clare Hotel is in a central location with a rather strange layout. The hotel's only real communal space is its large bar; the reception area, with its elaborate woodwork, is merely a place of transit.

    Location 7.5 /10

    The hotel is located in Dublin 2, opposite the Davenport Hotel, which is another of the 4 hotels in the capital that belong to this group. Oscar Wilde's house, the National Museum of Ireland, Trinity College, and Government House are all just a stone's throw away in this upmarket district very popular with tourists. Dublin International Airport is around 30 minutes away by Aircoach (the bus service connecting Dublin to the airport)! The bus fare costs 7.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The 74 guest rooms include 8 suites as well as standard rooms and rooms with a king size bed. As for the view, you have the choice between the pleasant courtyard and the quiet street. Thick bedspreads, yellow walls, dark wood furniture, and light brown wall-to-wall carpet make for a uniform, but totally dated setting. The small standard rooms are equipped with a flat screen TV with a keyboard, a tea and coffee tray, a trouser press, Internet access, and a phone. The small bathrooms are tiled in black and boast a rather nice 3 panel mirror, basic hospitality products, and a bathtub or a shower (in the 8 rooms on the top floor). Room service is available during the day.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    A few steps lead to the entrance under a small awning made of glass and ironwork. Opened in 1991 and last renovated in 2000, the Davenport Hotel boasts a facade of carmine brick work. The 5 storey building dates back to the 19th century and includes a lift. The lobby is small but particularly pleasant, thanks to the beautiful woodwork and the large windows with their wooden frames. The walls are adorned with various paintings of 19th century Dublin or depicting hunting scenes. There is also a large bar with a very long counter.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel has 1 restaurant (fast food) and 1 bar. The ground floor area is crowded with people who come here for a drink after work or to watch a game on the big screen TV. The large bar has a long L-shaped counter, wooden columns, and numerous chairs and tables on different levels and in little nooks. It's a friendly place. Next to the reception area, the restaurant opens onto a quiet street. Once again, woodwork is the dominant feature. When there are too many guests, the hotel opens a second room in the basement. A continental breakfast is served from 7:15am till 10:15am but the buffet, with a small selection of hot dishes, is rather limited. From 12:30pm till 3:00pm, just choose from the dishes presented to you and inform the cook of your choice. From 3:00pm till 9:00pm, the bar serves la carte dishes. The 10 main dishes are all Irish but, alternatively, you can order a sandwich.

      Verdant countryside stretches for miles around. The Carton House's estate also stretches over two superb and very popular golf courses. This large Palladian house, Irish in style, blends old and modern features perfectly. The original building was actually the Duke of Leinster's summer residence, but now houses 18 magnificent suites.

      Tucked away in a posh residential area in the south of Dublin, the Four Seasons lives up to the group's famous reputation for luxury. While there is not much to do in the surrounding area, the hotel itself has plenty to fill both guests' days and evenings, whether it be in the restaurant, one of the three bars, or the superb spa and swimming pool. Unless you're in Dublin on business, in which case note that the hotel has no fewer than six meeting rooms.

      A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, The Morrison was not built in honour of the famous rock singer Jim Morrison, but it does pay tribute to Irish musicians, bands and artists. Reopened in February 2013 after 10 weeks of refurbishment, The Morrison now boasts a designer interior - a rare choice of decor in this city where most hotels are decorated in a more classic style. Add to this the delicious restaurant and the art gallery, and The Morrison is unquestionably a safe bet in Dublin.

      Behind the big, tall bay windows of the luxurious and comfortable Fitzwilliam Hotel, a member of the "Preferred Hotels and Resorts" group boasting an ideal location in front of St. Stephen's Green, lies a very stylish and contemporary interior, replete with designer fittings.

      The beautiful 5-star Dylan Hotel was not built in honour of the famous rock star. No, the Dylan simply chose to take up residence in the street of the same name. Now a small hotel with 44 guest rooms, the Dylan was first a hospital, then a hotel, before becoming the Dylan Hotel. It has been welcoming guests into its entirely unique, modern and elegant interior since 2007. Far from being a chain hotel, the Dylan has a bar, restaurant and lounge, but unfortunately no well-being centre.

      The Clarion, opened in 2001, is a pleasant modern hotel without much character. It is ideal for fans of hotel chains or, more generally, those looking for a good well-being centre! Apart from the massage rooms, sauna and hammam, the hotel also has a lovely large swimming pool, which is quite rare for the Irish capital. Neither too big nor too small, the Clarion Hotel enjoys a privileged location at the heart of the city centre, on the banks of the River Liffey.
