It is in a terrific location, for the Aviva (a brisk twenty minute walk away but also a line of taxis just outside the hotel door), and more so for some of the main city attractions including St Stephen’s Green itself. The Little Museum of Dublin is almost next door. Leinster House and the National Gallery are nearby with Trinity College and the Book of Kells a little further. Dublin Castle, now (Jan-Jun) busy with EU 2013, is also within walking distance and I haven’t even mentioned the shops!
We took the two course option for twenty euro and were very happy with it. CL enjoyed her Chicken Liver Parfait, Madeira Jelly, Vanilla Puree, with toasted Brioche while the Donegal Fish Soup (with Saffron and Garlic Mayonnaise) was unexpectedly spicy and exactly what was required to put the taste buds on full alert in the cold weather.
