I stayed here by accident. I really did; it was a terrible accident. The photos of the hotel are nothing like those protrayed on the booking.com website. I had to climb over 2 people sheltering from the rain in the doorway to find the buzzer, to be let in eventually. Got checked in pretty quickly by a really friendly receptionist.... More

Seedy, smelling of disinfectant and air freshener, and with ghastly amplified music emanating from below, making the floor hum, it was so loud. Impossible to sleep with that thunder. A nightmare.Don't touch it with a bargepole.

Reading the reviews just days before my travel, I was in dilemma whether I made wrong choice. I did the reservation months ago, because I knew my travel dates and I needed something that is in the center and with decent price. At the end, I decided to give it a try. And, I was right. Yes, the outside of... More

Good hotel, friendly staff. Breakfast at the pub around the corner is lovely. I stayed in a very large room (two double beds all for me) on the third floor at the backside of the hotel. There was some noise from the pub outside but I had no trouble sleeping. However someone I spoke to in the pub said that... More

Stayed here with a mate at the end of August for the College American Football game at Croke Park. Great location as walkable to the stadium and into the middle of town. Things didn't start too well as we had ordered a twin room for Friday and Saturday night, but they gave us a double by mistake (and were very... More

Hey guys, the Gate Hotel was a great stay for me! Central location, super friendly staff (shout out to Anne and Bernie for looking after me), great bar, and they even gave me buckets, water and ice for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! Definitely recommend a stay, rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel is also right near the Spire... More

A perfect location, a spacious bedroom. The shower was blocked wouldn't drain we reported to reception and problem was sorted. Lovely breakfast. We loved the outside bar area. The rooms are clean. Lots of stairs to climb.
