This is a very busy hotel, and front desk staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. My room (408) was generously sized and spotless, with daylight flooding in through the expansive windows. The positives: quiet, a comfortable double bed and a single bed, luggage racks for two cases, two lounge chairs and table, desk and chair, free and fast wifi, plenty... More

Spent one night at the Mespil to watch Ireland v Australia. Have stayed before a few years ago so was a little worried about some of the reviews It transpired that there was no need. The Mespil provided an excellent base being close to the Aviva and local bars. Friendly staff, comfortable beds and a very good standard of food,... More

For the price this is just about OK. Spent 3 night here recently. Arrived a little early and the room was ready. Having taken a look around the room it was ample size but the bathroom door did not close as the door handle spring was broken. The table lamp was intermittent and the bulb glass was on the table....

The Mespil is always our first choice hotel in Dublin, although the rooms are now a bit dated and the bathrooms tired, they are always clean and comfortable. However the atmosphere is homely and inviting, the reception staff are extremely professional, efficient and welcoming. There is always a friendly "buzz" in the busy reception area. There's a great bar to... More

I stayed here recently whilst on a business trip, overall it was okay, the bedrooms definitely need a facelift it's all a bit dated, food was very good and service from bar staff excellent, reception could do with taking a leaf out of their book, except for one girl who was very pleasant. The week I was their 2 different... More

Mespil was a nice hotel. It wasn't the cleanest but was still cleanly. It is about a 15 minute walk away from the city. If you like late walks, then the distance shouldn't be a problem. The service people were very hospitable. A bonus was that most of our tours have direct pick ups from the hotel, which was nice.... More

Certainly not one of the better hotels I have stayed in. Very much a 'package' hotel, generally in need of a facelift and while the room was large, with both a double (comfortable) and a single bed, the bathroom is basic and the overall decor is dated. While room was clean, I have never been a fan of plastic curtains... More
