Activities/Attractions: Dublin, Ireland's capital city, lies on Dublin Bay and overlooks the Irish sea that divides Ireland and Great Britain. The city ranks among the top tourist destinations in Europe and in the last decade there has been an economic boom, which has seen areas of Dublin change dramatically. Many historical areas have been rejuvenated and restored, new shopping centres have arrived along with restaurants, clubs and bars, making this a very exciting place to stay.

You should visit the excellent museums, amble through the landscaped parks and engage with Dublin’s myriad cultural offerings, but make enough time for socialising, the beating heart that makes this city thrive. Garrulous, amiable and witty, Dubliners at their ease are the greatest hosts of all, providing a life-affirming experience that will restore your faith in human nature.

This is a family-owned and operated property located within walking distance to Dublin's Talbott Street, O'Connell Street, Temple Bar and Grafton Street.

"I want to especially praise the staff for all their hard work, helpfulness and friendliness. They were very accommodating. If I were to visit Dublin again, I'd almost certainly want to stay at the Anchor, not only because of the location, which is very convenient (especially for the Busaras), but especially because all the staff were so very friendly and helpful."
