I selected the Mespil based on a recommendation in a guidebook and the good reviews on tripadvisor. I was looking for a clean hotel in a decent location. I shared the room with a friend for 4 nights. Another friend booked another room and stayed 7 nights. The rooms were more spacious than I expected. We had plenty of room... More

I stayed in the hotel for two nights whilst on business. The room was fine - clean. There are some shops and restaurants close to the hotel; the grand canal dock is about a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel and has quite a few nice places to eat. The hotel has free wireless internet, which was pretty handy and... More

Spent two nights in the Mespil and would definitely return. Good sized room - with one more bed than I'd ordered! Room very clean but probably due a refurbishment in a year or two (some minor signs of wear and tear on the carpet). Good sized bathroom with bath and shower. Staff extremely helpful both in terms of the hotel... More

I stayed in the Mespil for one night, having got a good deal on hotels.com The hotel is very impressive from the outside and the reception area but the rooms are a bit more dated. The TV is quite small and the remote control is very sluggish. Also, the channels on offer are not great. My room had a good... More

The hotel is south east of the center of town in a quiet neighborhood. It is a little bit of a walk to the center but the area is nice. There are a couple of pubs, a gas station, a supermarket and a couple of convenience stores close by. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel offers a couple... More

I had a great stay at the Mespil Hotel in Dublin this past September. During my week there, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet, while not the best out there, was a pretty good value and good way to start the day. The hotel has free wireless Internet - definitely a plus!! The location was amazing... More

We stayed at the Mespil on our first trip to Dublin. It is in a quiet part of the city but in walking distance to many of the sites-Trinity College, Temple Bar, National Museum etc. In fact for the three days we stayed, we only used a taxi once--to go to a play in the evening. Although we never used... More

The location for my stay (visiting IBEC Confederation house) was perfect, and it's close to resturants and shops. The receptionist was a bit funny when I wanted to borrow a brolly as I didn't have 10 Euro for a deposit. Never mind the fact that she had my credit card details, all my stuff in my room and I offered... More
