Check-in and check-out was quick and efficient. The staff was friendly and helpful. I got a room on the side facing the busy street at the...

Quiet, comfortable room with nice touches like fresh cookies when you check in. It's close enough to walk to the city center but out of the fray. The breakfast was ample, and they held our bags for the day after checking out so we could explore the Aran Islands.
