This was our first trip to Ireland and I can't even explain how wonderful everyone was at the hotel. When we first arrived we are greeted by John the concierge and he was absolutely amazing and made us feel right at home. The other staff members went out of their way to make our trip and our stay so comfortable. The hotel was beautiful, the food was great and the rooms were immaculate. My husband and I are making this an annual trip and because of the wonderful stay we will be staying again at the Metropole.

EDM all night

Pros: location and staff
Cons: sound proofing? Update the wear and tear items. Somethings wear out.
Club was downstairs, but felt like my bed was in the club.
