The first thing people tend to notice about Isaac's (apart from the fact that its neighbourhood is not the shiniest example of modern Dublin) is the impressive reception area, with its flamboyant lighting and mantelpieces. Bedrooms are a little less OTT, sadly; but, (comparitively) dull though they are, they have all you need. Isaac's is distinguished mostly by lovely touches like the verdant courtyard and the snug garden lounge. There's a small bar and an Italian restaurant downstairs for emergencies. But do make sure you take a cab home at night.
