Patrick Punch's Hotel Review

A striking, edgy glass-and-steel facade has been built onto a landmark Victorian pub to create a hotel where style and pizzazz are combined with a friendly Irish welcome. Located a short hop from the city ring road, midway between the town center and the attractive Crescent Shopping Centre, it's a favorite with both business and leisure travelers. The spacious, modern lobby, with its funky red leather sofas and glass tables, sets the tone for a confidently stylish hotel, typical of Ireland's economic boom years. Bathrooms are big and beds are huge, with porthole-like lights above pale-wood headboards. Leather tub chairs bring a note of color to the neutral tones of the uncluttered decor. Good leisure facilities, secure parking, and a lively pub and restaurant add to the appeal.
