The hotel is located across from St. Stephen's Green, which appears to be the nicest part of town (from what I saw). It's near the main shopping area for tourists. The hotel is well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was a little small but well laid out and comfortable. We ate in the bar -- the food was good (not spectacular).
We stayed at Hillview House for one night on our way back home to the US for it’s a short 15-20 minutes drive to Dublin airport. The place is neat and very comfortable. John was the most welcoming and helpful. There is a little coastal town Scerries just a few minutes away with a bunch of restaurants. We had an awesome dinner at Brasco’s, had a good night sleep, and flew back home next morning with no shenanigans. Thank you.
