Stayed here for one night after a week long tour before flying out the next day. The staff at reception was extremely helpful and gave me great advice about transport and a night out in Dublin. Good value for money hotel!

We stayed at O'Shea's in July 2014 and were extremely impressed with the service we received. Not only was the hotel extremely reasonably priced, but the rooms were clean and spacious, and the ensuite was lovely. We were extremely impressed with the location and the pub downstairs, we will definitely return on our next visit to Dublin. My only issue... More

We only went to O'Shea's for food and drinks. The staff were great and the food was good. We felt quite comfortable and returned for the three days we were in Dublin. The prices were quite reasonable too.

This place has been here for years, and the only difference I noticed was, that it's full of tourists now, where as it used to be a favorite haunt of country Irish people. It was always a great music, and dancing venue, and if I remember correctly, a good pick up place. The music used to blast out, with, wall... More

We stayed here for a couple nights before heading west to Killarney. It is an affordable place to stay if you want to be near the heart of Dublin. The rooms are small, the pillows are hard and it's very noisy outside. Every night around 3 or 4 am the people partying downstairs in the bar poured out into the... More

I didn't know when I booked, but there's a pub on the ground floor of the hotel - which I loved! I was there just one night (a Monday) and they had two guys playing an acoustic set of some Irish and other just pop tunes. They engaged the crowd in some light banter between songs - it's maybe cliche,... More

We stayed at O'Shea's after missing the ferry to Wales due to an "idjit" taxi driver taking us to the wrong dock. Long story. Anyway, he dropped us off at O'Shea's. Staff at the front were quite good with their humour and understanding of a difficult situation. Room was small, but clean. Very close to City Centre. Pub downstairs was... More

Rooms are basic, a bit dated, but clean. The hotel has a good overall location that allows you to get out and walk to key areas that you would most likely want to see. Also, a bonus was the live music. Our first night arriving we actually went down to have a drink and stayed on until the band was... More
