Royal Irish Automobile Club, Dublin 2
The Irish Automobile Club - as it was then known - was formed at a
meeting on the night of January 22nd 1901, and is one of the oldest
motor clubs in the world. Set up to further and promote the interests of
automobilism in Ireland, its first general meeting took place in the
Metropole Hotel in Sackville Street (now O'Connell Street), Dublin on
March 12th 1901.
The RIAC's current clubhouse in Dawson Street also saw the formation of the Irish Aero Club in 1909.
The club was awarded the ‘Royal' prefix to its title in recognition of the humanitarian work carried out by its members during the Great War when many Irish men, returning injured from the front, were transported to convalescent homes on members' vehicles that were converted into ambulances for this pupose.

We didn't eat at the restaurant so we can't comment on that, but we found the room too hot and stuffy. But we could ask if heating could be turned off.staff we so lovely pleasant and attentive we would definitely stay again
Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
