Great, functional, clean, modern hotel in a great location. We were going to the Bord gais they are and it was an ideal location for there and the gasworks area. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel called The Gasworks and the food was good here if not slightly overpriced but it’s central Dublin so you have to expect that. Would highly recommend.
