We arrived very late to discover that we had to haul all our bags up three flights no offer of help. after that to be put into a pokie so called bed room that had a rotten damp smell. the walls we filthy old spill marks running down the wall. the ceiling had a hole that had mites crawling out of needless to say we left oh I have the pictures. Health and safety should insist pest control. dirty old mans hostel I'd call it Receptionist was so rude

Just stayed last weekend for my hen wkend and although we were on the 3rd floor and had to do loads of stairs, the service staff and rooms were as above, had the best weekend away ever and will be returning some time after my wedding with the girls. I have already recommended it to a friend as she wanted somewhere to go for her birthday thanx to all the staff for making my last weekend of freedom a memory I will never forget cheers!

Ok, so maybe the Earl is only a two star because its sheets arent the softest and the rooms aren't the greatest. HOWEVER, I have never had a better experience at a hotel than here. Everyday, the man working the desk would ask me about my daily adventures. Also, when it came time to leave, he ran upstairs and helped me with my luggage and THEN gave me 10 Euro for cab fare. Can you tell me who else would do this?? Not a single hotel in the states, that's for sure.
Stay there if you're looking for a deal and some old school charm. Don't if you're looking to be pampered and can't stand to rough it a little.

I always stay in the Earl of Kildare when I come to Dublin and that would be around 3 or 4 times a year. The staff are friendly and most of all Bill, the night porter, was the best. I heard that it might be closing down or maybe renovating the place so I hope it will stay open and satisfy many manymore customers. It is so close to everything aswell. Highly recommend it.

Are the only contributors to this hotel receiving the rating I've given it. I say helpful staff, of the staff that were there I can only say the guys behind the bar and the younger woman on reception were actually pleasant to talk to.
We stayed two nights, and booked two more nights for later in our trip for fear of coming back to no hotel in Dublin.
Our first room was up on the third floor, no lift(!) meant we had three flights of stairs to carry our bags up. The room was small, and while tidy was very badly decorated and didn't look all that clean. Wallpaper was ripped off the wall, the TV remote was fixed to the bedside cabinet, the wardrobe looked like it was missing a door, the room was dimly lit, the hairdryer in the bathroom was smashed and altogether everything seemed a little grubby. To her credit the girl on reception was most helpful when it came to directions and help hiring a car for members of our party.
Our second stay was on the second floor. Again no lift, again a heavy bag. This room was decorated no better with horrible pine furniture, although the TV was larger and the hairdryer intact, a large splash covered the wall. This room was dirty and had a strange smell.
No fault of the hotel staff, this is one place that looks like it would benefit from a complete refurbishment.

The Earl is a little scruffy. Okay, it's a bit of a dump, but it's a charming dump. Yes, the rooms are old, and yes, the carpet is dirty, but it's cheap, it's safe, it's in a GREAT location, the staff is fantastic and friendly, and the bar, Harry B's, is one of the best-kept secrets in Dublin. I love the Earl, warts-and-all.

I was there for a couple of days and would recommend it for service, value for money and central Dublin location. Bar is brilliant with real ballad sessions and local Irish people enjoying themselves. Bar prices quite good and food very good in the bar. I will stay there again

This is a reasonably-priced hotel in a great location in Dublin: very near several museums, the university, Busaras bus station, and LUAS. The facility isn't new, and doesn't appear to have been recently renovated, but was totally acceptable. The front desk staff and the pub staff were very friendly and very helpful. The pub is a great place to have a GUinness or listen to traditional Irish music (oft-times mixed with other stuff).

Top Local Tips for Dublin

Temple Bar A great place to visit on a boozy night out and a definate must, but watch the pennies!! At a steep 15 euros for two drinks it can get a bit pricey. We stayed for a few, had a wander round, took in the sights and then found a wee little Irish pub with proper traditional Irish music and decent prices and it was fab!!
