Our room was nice and clean. Not overly big, but still had a table and chairs and enough room as needed. There was a nice bar off the lobby area that we enjoyed. Staff was very nice. Breakfast in the morning was good, but nothing overly fancy. It was nice to have free Wi-Fi too. Good location with many places... More

A large rambling hotel in a good location for business visitors. Public areas a bit shabby especially carpets in corridors. Nice bar with friendly staff. Has a small gym with reasonable cardio facilities but not much in the way of weights. Free WiFi but it kept cutting out, making it unusable :(

We loved the Mespil so much we returned there for an extra night at the end of our self-guided tour of Ireland. The rooms are large and comfortable, the food is delicious, and the bar has a great atmosphere. By far the best part, though, is the staff. We arrived in Dublin and promptly got lost in the city. Driving... More

My husband and I stayed here while on a short trip to Dublin. We were upgraded from a double room to an apartment that was in the older part of the hotel. It was a bit of a chore to get to our room, upstairs, down the hall, around the corner, down the elevator, down the hall again. But overall... More

Thank you for your recent review of the Mespil Hotel Dublin. Great to hear that you found the hotel conveniently located and ideal for your short stay in Dublin. The apartments offer great space for long stay guests and they are further away from reception, which I understand you found a little tricky to find. Nice to know that you... More

Don't go the Dublin Mespil till they have fixed the heating in the newly 'refurbished' rooms! When I arrived at 7.30 pm on April 9th, my room was about 90 degrees Fahrenheit (33 centigrade) and I had to ask for another room, which was not much cooler. There is no way for guests to control the room temperature. A real... More

Thank you for your recent review of the Mespil Hotel Dublin. Apologies for the extreme ‘heat’ in the new Executive rooms, this is currently being addressed by our maintenance team as all rooms need to be checked individually – this is part of the ‘snag list’ and is under control. Otherwise I know you found the hotel good value and... More

Having come off the ferry at Dublin port, this was a one night stay in Dublin as part of 6 nights in Ireland with my mother, we arrived at the hotel quite late on the Thursday evening due to Dublin traffic and were quite happy with it's location.

The location of the Mespil Hotel is wonderful - across from a picturesque canal and near lovely Georgian homes & red brick Victorian architecture on Baggott St. with a very pleasant walk to all the main sights in Dublin. Beshoff's fish & chip shop just a couple doors down from the Mespil is excellent. But the showers and the wi-fi... More

We stayed at the Mespil for 9 nights. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the helpfulness of the staff to provide information about tours, transport and sightseeing in Dublin. The room we stayed in was dated and worn (they are in the process of renovating rooms) and the shower curtain belonging to the cramped shower over... More

Reasonable hotel, good location if you are on business or even sightseeing. Nothing that makes it stand out but would be happy to go back again. Easy to access a range of restaurants from its location.

We went to Dublin for Rugby at the Aviva, and the hotel was recommended by several Dubliners, for location and good value at 149 Euros for twin or double room. We were not disappointed, and the Full Irish breakfast at an extra 12 Euros was excellent, offering something for all tastes. The staff were very helpful and the location was... More
