Take the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus right from the hotel, and you can see all of Dublin , then pick where you get off to visit. Even if you're a teetotaler you'll enjoy the Guinness Storehouse and the Old Jameson Distillery tours.Trinity College & the Book Of Kells are a must-see.The front desk staff are very helpful in arranging other tours.

Traveling from the states, we were looking for a nice place to stay for a few nights. This hotel is a prime example of "looks can be deceiving." The rooms are NOT as regal as the website indicates; requiring upgrades to the fixtures and beds. We had to wait over an hour for our room to be ready and staff... More

We stayed here for one night on a recent family break to Dublin. The staff were friendly and courteous, we had a really spacious room for the four of us, it was very good value for Dublin and close to city centre and plenty of good restaurants.

This hotel did not live up to any expectations. It was not very clean, and quite dusty, and there was a strange odour in the room. Furniture and fittings were all dated and worn. I've stayed at Travelodges that were better, and almost half the price. It is not at all what is advertised, an example being the 'many canal... More

Spent 4 nights, staff friendly, room was good, several restaurants up the street and food in hotel, canal across the road, downtown walkable but u are 15-20 minutes away so some would want to stay closer. Bus stop near by. Breakfast good. Wi fi good in lobby, fair in rooms, but free. All in all a good stay in Dublin!!

Stayed at the Mespil at the beginning and end of a 10-day trip to Ireland - totally suited our needs. Clean, comfortable - would definitely recommend for a stay in Dublin. Central location - we easily walked to everything. Good buffet breakfast.
