We visit our daughter who resides in Dublin frequently and we always stay at the Academy Plaza. The rooms are very clean and the staff very nice. We enjoy the location and the bar off the lobby is so comfortable.

Comfortable room with friendly staff. Travel to Dublin regularly on business and this hotel has been very suitable. Great location to Dublin airport bus, taxis and only short walk to the Luas (tram service). Will be even better once the refurbished Gym is available.

The hotel itself was...

Great location of O Connel St, near all the city buzz. Handy to have the airport link 747 outside. Clean hotel, helpgul reception, smallish room but paid a smallish price, flawless housekeeping. Didnt eat at hotel so cannot review. Advertised gym is not a gym - actually a basement room with basic, part operational equipment (5 items). I would stay...

We had a double room on the fifth floor at the front of the building which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was huge! I do struggle with hotel pillows as I prefere feathers. I understand this can be a problem for people with allergies but a choice would be great. Having a sofa and coffee table was nice....
