Grand pub for a drink but do not eat here. I could leave it there but to be fair to the management, I will continue. We only wanted bar food. We weren't even expecting much. There were only two of us. It was about 8:30 pm The Chef threw out slop. It arrived in bits and pieces. What arrived at... More

Let me start by saying that I truly wanted to like this hotel. The woman at reception was very nice, and the pub downstairs was top notch. I watched a hurling match and met some great new friends. The food was delicious and complimented the hurling match perfectly. The view of the canal from my window was fantastic. Having said... More

Good quality for the price. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. Despite the pub downstairs no noise in the rooms. Nice walk from the hotel to the center of the city. Shops nearby including a small supermarket.

Stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend with 5 friends. Location is ideal, everything in walking distance and bar downstairs very good and does nice food. Would stay here again, when we're back in Dublin!

Stayed at portobello night last week. Good service, and free breakfast. Had the corner room with nice view, a bit noice from traffic but not too bad. Had a nice view towards the canal. Had a nice breakfast in the pub in first floor.

Great place, a handy little hotel which is easy to find on the canal. Stayed here for 4 nights last week with my sister and we have both stayed on occasion before when working in Dublin. For a 2 star hotel the Portobello exceed my expectations. The rooms and bathroom were spotless and perfectly acceptable. Shay in the bar is... More

We stayed there for three night last week (Thursday to Sunday) and we were over all very happy with our stay. Well situated beside a lovely old canal and within a walking distance of St' Stephan's green and the shopping area. I absolutely loved to have the pub at the ground floor and the food there was also quite good... More
