Review from Melanie M.
I stayed here for one night in a room over looking Christchurch Cathedral. The room was surprisingly quiet given it overlooked such a busy main road. The room was a good size and had really comfortable beds. The bathroom was a little small and not very glamorous, but it is not that type of hotel, it is more of a functional hotel and the room and bathroom functioned well. The room had a good sized desk, functioning tv and kettle as well as the all important black out curtains. So over all a comfortable and convenient stay, but nothing special.
However, one of the best things about this Jury's is its coffee shop. It is a great place to chill out and read a book or do some work as it has comfy seats, big tables and lots of space. The coffee shop is now a costa coffee and their coffee is very tasty in my humble opinion. They have free strong wifi so it really is a great place to chill out and stay connected in the bustle of the city.

Jury's Christchurch is in a great location--for sightseeing, bar hopping, and purse snatching. Yes, while sitting in their lovely bar, a slimy male and female entered. The maie pretended he was talking on the phone, near our table. Meanwhile, the female acted like she was looking for a seat. The male threw down some change, my friend looked down, and the female stole the purse (that was sitting on her chair).
Quickly my friend noticed and went after the woman. I grabbed the guy, took his phone, and threatened to beat the (heck) out of him. My friend caught the female, snatched back her purse, and let her go. Hotel employees FINALLY came, and I released the guy--but promptly took his phone and smashed it.
So, other than the thieves, the rooms are in bad condition and rather small. The hotel employees are very nice, and the food is decent.
But we will never stay there again. Stay at a Hilton (at the Kilmainham roundabout) or one of the other upscale hotels. You may pay more, but you'll save your wallet (and purse)!

Great location, good breakfast, friendly staff, cheapish.
Outdated, small, uncomfortable, bare rooms. The toilet flush occasionally worked. the TV picture was terrible, the elevator was tiny (getting a little picky now), the furniture was old...
Basically I'll never stay here again.

Positives - The hotel was semi updated and had to be what I thought a great location for the price. Lots of room and free coffee and tea! It was walking distance to most attractions. We booked through http://booking.com and had a room for 3 for only $60 euro/night. The breakfast was also very good (they tried to make us pay for it even though it was gauranteed through http://booking.com but we complained enough and they gave in). The reception was very friendly and helpful with most problems.
Negatives - Our floor smelled like smoke even though it was a non smoking room. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO INTERNET AT THE HOTEL. They say there is free internet in the lobby it doesn't work. I paid for internet in the room and it didn't work. I paid for internet at the workstations and they didn't work. It had nothing to do with my computer as several other guests complained about the same problem. Though it was quite pathetic I couldn't use the internet at the hotel as it would have helped greatly with trip planning.
I would possibly stay at the hotel again even though it had it's issues only because of how well priced it was.
Review from Heather E.
Still really like this place, especially the room that I stayed in just last night. It was really cute. So nice, that I went and got takeaway so I could enjoy my room. I was on the fifth floor. Only problem was that it had an adjoining door and you could hear everything from the next room...which was only a problem when I was asleep at midnight and the couple next door stumbled in.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Over half of the group's rooms were ready when we arrived just before noon. For those whose rooms were not ready, they arranged luggage storage and were very helpful to our students. And... when I did get takeaway, I wanted some ice with my drink and I know that ice machines are not common in Europe, so I went to the bar and asked for some and the bartender was more than happy to help me out, asking how much I wanted and when I said that I'll bring the glass back immediately, she said, "Don't worry, just leave it in the room and we will collect it."

Stayed here a few times when friends were coming to visit. Amazing location, you have so many sightseeing spots of on your door. It's on the cusp of Temple Bar which has it's upsides and downsides. Downside is it can get noisy with the late night revellers, upside is, it's great if you are the late night reveller as you can quickly fall into bed.
The Jury's group are good at what they do as they have been doing it for years, so a trusted brand. They always have excellent offers. Staff are wonderful. If you want a relaxing get away this location may not be the wisest move but if you want to save on taxis and have the ability to be in the heart of the city, then come here.

Review from Lynda M.
I stayed here many times for work. The Inn is in a great location, a bit noisy with the church bells chiming. The place is fine, but some rooms show some serious wear and tear. Could use some remodeling! The front desk staff was always so nice to me when I would arrive in at 6AM on the red eye from Boston, they always told me how great I looked (that always made me smile!) and got me my room pronto.

Good hotel in the center of Dublin, very close to everything a tourist might want to see. Clean room with good bed. Bar is open until late. Only minor complaint is that wifi is only available in the lobby (via one-day codes), so those wishing internet in their rooms with a wifi device are out of luck.
