Close to the city centre & easily accessible by the airport shuttle, The Gate Hotel is staffed by friendly Dubliners who are always happy to help or offer their local knowledge. My second floor room (3rd floor for US Americans) for four evenings in late November '14 was immaculately kept, with a nice bathroom en suite, & view of Parnell... More

It was a Friday night and a friend had messed up booking our rooms but Ann was more than helpful and managed to sort it so that our party of 5 had the biggest room in the place for the night. The room was clean and comfortable and for the price was excellent value. The chap on reception overnight was... More

I was charged twice for my rooms as we booked with Booking.com using my credit card but only had my husbands on the trip so The Gate Hotel told us after we had stayed there that they would have to charge us again!!! Sounds ridiculous but it's true - they are carrying out frauds and we are still trying to... More

Lady that checked us in was very friendly and efficient. Room was very big, 3 double beds for 2 of is! Bathroom nice... More

The main entrance is rather offputting, as it looks like the way into some sleazy bar. However, once you have gone up the dark staircase you reach reception and it is quite pleasant. The hotel is above a bar so could potentially be noisy, depending on where your room is located. The staff are absolutely charming and welcoming - this... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in March 2015 by myself. I was a bit nervous having read the reviews but can honestly say it was lovely. Very comfy bed, lots of character and at a price that cannotbe beaten. Short stroll to all attractions, staff friendly. There is a pub downstairs so a bit of noise as expected. But if... More

Group of us stayed last night, booked a few rooms. From the outside, this place is not at all inviting, quite the opposite in fact. Once inside, it gets a bit better. Fine place if all you need is a bed. It's old, dated, wonky stairs etc. But as I say, grand if all u want is a place to... More

This place is above a pub, so I was expecting some noise. I wasn't expecting a Techno party going on below me though. The sign on the door said they had earplugs, but with such a bass, that doesn't matter. There were stains on the walls, the bathroom was clean, but the trashcan fell apart as soon as I used... More
