The Abbey Hotel is in Dublin city centre, across the river from Temple Bar and close to the shops, bars and attractions. The Luas red line that services Heuston Station and The O2 Dublin stops right outside the front door.
While there is no formal Restaurant as such, once you make your way to the inside you will see the front bar has a personal trendy café environment offering a fantastic spot to enjoy a pint or coffee. The James Joyce?s pub and restaurant was refurbished in late 2009 and serves local produce and the bar has live traditional music at weekends. Major sporting events are shown on the big screen.
A bit deceptive and perhaps not particularly inspiring exterior, the hotel blends in with the shops that are located down Middle Abbey Street. The James Joyce Cafe Bar draws your attention however.
Small, welcoming and friendly lobby.
Superbly located, this is a no frills property with good value en-suite rooms. It is only a few steps from the Academy Music Venue. (GW 02/2012)
