Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the south side of Dublin, a short walk to major sights, shopping, and nightlife

The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is located on a mainly residential street on the south side of the River Liffey. There are restaurants, pubs, and local stores nearby, and major sights are all within easy walking distance. There are fewer public transportation options in this area than in other parts of the city, but proximity to many tourist attractions, nightlife in Temple Bar, and the shopping scene along Grafton Street make this part of town more convenient than some might expect.

This area of Dublin is home to some must-see historic attractions, including Dublin Castle, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Christ Church Cathedral, all of which can be easily reached on foot from the hotel. The area dates back to the Viking and Medieval times, and the occasional remnant of the old wall can be seen when walking around the neighborhood. Aungier Street, located down the street from the Radisson Blu Royal, is lined with restaurants, pubs, and some interesting stores.
