Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In residential Donnybrook, a local neighborhood with restaurants, pubs, and cafes

The Hampton Hotel is located in residential Donnybrook, a pretty neighborhood with restaurants, pubs, and cafes. It is also walking distance to beautiful Herbert Park. The city center is a 20-minute walk away and the area is well served by several bus lines, including the airport bus.

Dublin has changed dramatically in the last 15 years. First there was the boom of the Celtic Tiger that brought great development and growth to the city. As a result of this wave of wealth, the city now has a cosmopolitan feel that it never had before. Since the economic bust, restaurants and hotels have generally retained the same quality, but the city is less expensive. Dublin has beautiful gardens, museums, and theaters, but it is the everyday things in the Irish capital -- like sitting in a local pub and having a pint -- that are more exciting here than anywhere else.
