Located in the very heart of Dublin's Temple Bar this is the perfect location to explore the city's cultural as well as nocturnal activities! Surrounded by bars restaurants and nightclubs right at the doorstep there is no doubt that the Fitzsimons Hotel is in the middle of the action. A 4-storey traditional style building overlooking the lively Temple Bar as well as the River Liffey. The entrance is found on the Quay where the large reception area offers information on the local area as well as plenty of space to check in and out. There is a lift for guests convenience to one side of the lobby. This is a lively location perfect for those looking to enjoy the nightlife. Not ideal for those looking for peace and quiet. Especially perfect for stag and hen parties as the hotels' own bars and restaurants mean you will hardly have to leave the premises! Rooms are medium in size and whilst being relatively basically furnished they are well looked after comfortable and bright. Due to the lively area of Temple Bar the hotel can suffer from noise especially on weekends. However for those looking to party hard there could not be a more perfect property. The hotel is attached to a huge bar/nightclub which offers food throughout the day. Breakfast is served in a private area on the 3rd floor. The Fitzsimons Bar/Club is over 4 floors with a variety of live music and DJ's every single night of the week.
The good news is the hotel is in Temple Bar so you are close to the action.
The bad news is the hotel is in Temple Bar so you are close to the action. All. The. Time. The noise from the hotel wasn't bad. The street level shouting and street performer with an electric guitar just below on the street was a bit too much.
The location was central but located in an extraordinarily noisy street with thin walls and thin windows, so sleeping was nearly impossible.
Most of it. The promised 'Free WiFi' did not reach my room, and when I went to the lobby to attempt to connect to the Wifi network my devices would not connect to it at all. The fire alarm went off for 10 inexplicable seconds at 2AM. The sheets were dirty
Great Location in Temple Bar! Noisy as expected.
Room could use some updating... New linens and blankets are a must.
