On a wide, busy street off historic O’Connell Street
Jurys Inn Parnell Street is a budget property located on a street just off historic O'Connell Street. During the day, it is a nice walk from major attractions and interesting areas on the other side of the River Liffey, such as Temple Bar and Trinity College, but at night, the area can be dodgy. Historic attractions such as the 19th-century General Post Office are nearby. Many bus lines run along O'Connell Street, making it easy to access other parts of the city. The airport bus also stops a few minutes' walk from the hotel.
Once the main stage of Ireland’s political struggles, O’Connell Street is now Dublin’s main thoroughfare, home to hotels, shopping, and casual restaurants. Highlights of the neighborhood include the Abbey Theatre, the Gate Theatre, and the Dublin Writers Museum.
Jurys Inn Parnell Street is a basic, budget option in a somewhat central location. The 253 rooms are spacious, but room decor is dated and amenities are lacking. Rooms have electric kettles and duvets, but show their age with old tube TVs. Bathrooms are clean but basic as well with shower/tub combos. Hotel amenities include a bar, casual restaurant, and coffee bar. A reasonably priced breakfast is served daily. The location is convenient for shopping on Henry Street or attending a show at the Gate Theatre, but the area can be somewhat dodgy at night.
