We were very happy with our stay at Buswells. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, our room was comfortable, quiet and clean and a good breakfast was provided. The location was very convenient for Trinity college, St. Stephen's Green, the main shopping street. The Aircoach from Dublin Airport stops across the road from the hotel. Same day... More

Two stays at Buswells; July 1-4 and July 18-20, on either end or a Rick Steves Tour. The hotel is well located, just a block or two away from Trinity College, the National Museum - Archaeology, and the Grafton Street shopping area. Most attractions are within easy walking distance, and transportation to and from the airport is within two blocks... More

Stayed here with my family in June. This hotel is located on a relatively quiet street in the heart of Dublin - between Trinity College and St. Stephen's Green and just across the street from the National Museum of Ireland - Archeology. We could easily walk to all the places we wanted to visit. In addition, catching the Hop On... More

Very well located, Buswell's is obviously a bit of an institution in Dublin. My wife and I stayed here in July before a trip to the north. Staff are very helpful - when booking by email I was specific in the type of room I asked for and was pleased with room 403. It was a bit of a hike... More

Right across the street from the Dáil Éireann, the Irish governmental body, and the National Museum of Ireland- Archaeology, I was impressed by the location. We were able to walk around Dublin with ease. The staff was excellent and we felt very taken care of. The decor made me feel like I was stepping into the past - just beautiful!

My wife and I stayed three nights in June at Buswells Hotel in Dublin. The location was perfect and the place (room, staff and restaurant) were great. The only issue could be the lack of air conditioning (but this is the same issue in most of the places we stayed in Ireland). I didn't see it as a problem because... More

I had stayed here 20 years ago but was so jet-lagged, I barely remembered it. Oddly, it seemed not to have changed much in 20 years from what little I could remember. This hotel is in great need of some modernization. Let's just say the bathroom plumbing left much to be desired. The rooms are tiny and like someone else... More

A group of 12 of us stayed here at the weekend. Its a perfect location, just a stones throw away from Grafton Street. Bedrooms had everything you need and very clean. The staff were really pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. Thoroughly recommended!
