The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The SamSara bar... More

We had heard so much about Conrad Gallagher and his cooking, we were so looking forward to our visit. We dined there on July 12th 2011. On arrival, we were 15 minutes early in the waiting area, much to... More

The hotel was stunning with a superbly decorated room and common areas.All of that becomes unappealing, though, when you have to walk through a club to get to your room. Also, the noise was horrendous and we couldn't sleep. They moved us up two floors and it still didn't help (we did get a small compensation). I wish we had... More

Just back from a fantastic weekend spent at La Stampa Hotel in Dublin. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and welcoming on arrival. The room was tastefully decorated and spacious for a boutique hotel. The bed was very comfortable and dressed eastern style echoing the theme of the hotel. We had our evening meal in the Dining Room... More

Stayed in La Stampa for our wedding anniversay, Fri & Sat night. An amazing location which allowed us to step outside our front door and instantly soak up the atmosphere of Dublin. The hotel has the added bonus of having an amazing spa upstairs where we enjoyed a couples treatment. I only had a peek of the restaurant as I... More
