Directly adjacent to Christ Church Cathedral
The Jurys Inn Christchurch is located directly adjacent to Christ Church Cathedral. Historic Temple Bar, the cultural quarter of Dublin, is only a short walk away. The hotel is within walking distance of numerous bars, restaurants, and cafes, as well as several sights such as Dublin Castle, Trinity College, and theaters.
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 a high point for many visitors.
Jurys Inn Christchurch is an 182-room hotel that is part of a local no-frills chain. Rooms are bland and slightly worn, but clean and spacious with flat-screen TVs, couches, and electric kettles. Bathrooms are tiny but clean, and some rooms have views overlooking the famous Dublin landmark, Christ Church Cathedral. The hotel does offer an on-site bar and restaurant, but there are many great dining options a quick walk away in nearby Temple Bar. While the location is within easy walking distance of shopping, dining, pubs, and popular tourist sights, some guests complain about fees for Internet and noisy church bells.
