I stayed here for three nights with a work group for an event we had nearby. The location is very convenient, particularly for the Rotunda Hospital and its a nice walk into Temple Bar (approx 10mins) There is also a taxi rank out the front which is very convenient. The hotel is very big and I thought it tired. In... More

Ideal location Attentive staff Rooms spacious & clean Close to all attractions Would definitely recommend Only criticism - there was a refurbishment during August, one of the busiest months. This meant the gym was moved to a temporary location which was not ideal.

Had opportunity to stay a few nights last week, always wanted to stay here as I normally stay outside city centre. I really wanted to give this hotel top marks because of its history/location etc.. Mixed bag, first the positives, online check in very convenient parking a breeze with easy access (€14.50 per night-city centre what do you expect) Reception... More

Fantastic hotel. Very central yet very quiet in the room.all sights are nearby however the buses run from right outside the hotel. Brilliant staff who are extremely friendly and efficient, and I have never had such a clean bathroom. Was very impressed with the reasonable prices in the bar, they were the same as the pub prices. . Would highly... More

My daughter, sister-in-law and I stayed at the Gresham Hotel for 3 nights. Excellent position on Dublin's main O'Connell Street. I have been to Dublin many times but never stayed at the Gresham. My main reason for choosing this hotel this time is because it was £100 cheaper for the duration, than the 3 star hotel where I normally stay... More

Passed the Gresham Hotel a few times on previous Dublin visits and it always seemed impressive. One of the original 'grand hotels' from the late Georgian period, it has a great location on upper O'Connell st, so everything central is within walking distance. Didnt eat in the hotel (apart from a good breakfast) as there are so many excellent choices... More

The hotel is ideally located on O'Connell Street, meaning you can walk up to Grafton street and a few other lively areas. Stayed one night for a Tyrone match (GAA). The hotel is lovely, beautiful lobby area with plenty of seating. Rooms were clean and comfortable, good sized bathroom. Separate shower and bath, the shower was very powerful. The bed... More

2nd time in Dublin; first time we stayed in Temple Bar --- way too busy. This time, we tried the Gresham, which we loved. Location is great...an easy walk to just about anything. Handy to Temple Bar, shopping, Trinity College, etc. etc... This is very much a traditional hotel. Well appointed; well run. Staff very professional and helpful. Room was... More

Dear Reviewer, We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope you will return on your next visit, Please note that the hotel has very few rooms that overlook O'Connell Street and unfortunately while we strive to grant all requests such rooms can not be guaranteed, we were happy that we could accommodate an early check in...
