Firstly please try to make the entrance more obvious to your guests. We had to ask a passer by how to get in. The location of the hotel was perfect for a city break and the room was ideal, clean, good bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities were not good. What on earth is 'Barry's Tea?' The major gripe is that... More

Arrived at the gate hotel- throughthe rock bar, which was worrying for my poor boyfriend who sheepishly looked at me as if to say 'what have you done?!'. Turns out the hotel above is completely different. checked in and shown to our room. The place was very clean, the room was a little small but not a problem for us... More

Amazing breakfast served at the pub next-door. Otherwise a pretty basic hotel. Wifi didn't work all the time, but the location is good. Rooms are quite small. A lot of noise comes from the pub in the evenings but apparently they have earplugs down at the reception.

Just come back from a weekend in Dublin staying at The Gate. The outside looks very dismal but don't be put off...... We were very early and couldn't book in until 2pm, but they let us leave our luggage there so we could continue to look around. When we checked in the rooms where very clean, all clean bedding and...

Absolutely one of the worst places I have ever seen in my travels. Whoever designed their website should win some sort of award. When we told the cab driver where to drop us off, his first reaction was, are you sure???? When you pull up, there is a black door, with no windows and no front reception area. You have... More

As with a lot of the below reviews, it is a shock when you first arrive and look at the building. 'Maintenance' is a word the management needs to look up. After getting over the inital appearance of the Hotel , you do get what you pay for. The staff were friendly. The bathroom was clean. Bed was fresh (albeit... More

The Gate Hotel is perfect if you are looking for a cheap, clean place to stay near all of Dublin's attractions. It is located right off of O'Connell street; you are in walking distance of Trinity College, lots of shopping and restaurants, Temple Bar, and the Liffey (and all of its bridges). Don't judge the Gate by the exterior! Its... More

I have stayed at the Gate twice in the last 6 months once whilst working in the area and for 2 nights at St Paddys night. The outside looks a bit scary as its next to the entrance of a rock bar.However I like its quirkiness and the wonky stairs and the fact that the rooms are bigger in general... More
