The North Star Hotel Dublin was built in the early 19th-century, and is mentioned in James Joyce's masterpiece 'Ulysses'. The North Star Hotel has undergone extensive refurbishment since this time and now comprises 175 Deluxe Bedrooms, Restaurant, Bar, Heated Beer Garden , Gym & Sauna.
The lounge bar is new and very attractive. Please note that the 2 lifts only cater for executive rooms; clients should use stairs in the standard room block.
"McCoy's" traditional bar and the "Bianconi Room", a popular restaurant that specialises in international cuisine.
All the rooms are ensuite with direct-dial telephone, tea/coffee-making facilities, hair dryer and trouser press. All are in good condition, and have recently benefitted from a soft refurbishment.

The North Star Hotel and Premier Club Suites is a 3 star deluxe city centre hotel located in the heart of Dublin, opposite the Irish Financial Services Centre (IFSC), Connolly Railway Station and Luas tram (direct tram to 02 venue) and around the corner from the central bus station (Busarus). The Aviva Stadium and the RDS is a short trip on the Dart across the road at Connolly Station. The hotel is in short walking distance from the 02 Venue (10-15 Minutes) Temple Bar, O’Connell Street, The Gaiety Theatre, The Olympia Theatre, The Grand Canal Theatre, The Convention Centre, Trinity College, shopping districts including Henry Street and Grafton Street. For all Rugby, GAA sports fans and concert goers the North Star Hotel is 10 minutes from Croke Park Stadium.
Due to flights from London being cancelled due to bad weather on the night I was to stay (30 December 2016) I was not able to take up the booking. Despite my cancelling early in the evening when I became aware of the position the North Star Hotel refused to refund my pre-paid booking. Hence the "Awful" rating. For people who travel extensively like myself these are the sort of things we remember if looking for rooms in that area in the future.
I have stayed in the North Star before and loved it however room 110 is not as updated as other rooms. The complimentary elements which are normally in place were missing such as slippers, bathrobe etc. However the bed was comfy and the breakfast was lovely.

This hotel offers excellent value for money, in a city centre location and is modern and clean. The staff were very helpful, polite and efficient. A buffet Breakfast was included in the rate and this was very good - the coffee was excellent, suggest: include brown bread and fresh fruit. I recommend this hotel to those staying for business or leisure.
