My friend and I stayed for 2 nights in a twin room and it was perfect! It's easily one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in! Stylish, ultra modern rooms with a massive shower and comfy beds! The Luas tram system is right outside of the hotel and and takes you into all the bits you need to get to (Temple Bar etc). The staff were friendly, especially Niamh who was really helpful, suggesting places for us to visit and eat. The bus to the Airport stops right outside to the left of the hotel so it's in an ideal place. All in all, an amazing stay.

The Gibson is one of the best hotels in Dublin especially if you are going to the O2 to a concert. Spotless, lovely rooms and comfy beds and they do a great breakfast stayed there 3 times highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for front of hotel.

My husband and I stayed two nights at The Gibson last week. What a great way to end our trip!

The hotel is very modern and airy. Our room was very big and extremely clean. It had tons of electrical outlets in very convenient places, perfect for charging all of the typical travel items you bring along these days. The huge windows let in lots of light and make the room feel even bigger. The bathroom is not huge, but it was not cramped. The shower is very big and has two different shower heads (regular and rain). Even though the hotel was quite busy, we never heard any other guests either in the rooms next to us or even the hallway.

We were a little concerned about the location being so far from the city center, but there was no need to feel that way. The LUAS stop (The Pointe on the red line) is directly outside the hotel. The city center is about a 7-10 minute ride. Side note: as of last week, round trip tickets were 3.70€ and one day passes were 6.40€ per person.

Access to/from the airport could not be easier. There is a stop for both the Airlink and Aircoach bus right outside the hotel to the left. The stop is the last one before the airport, so the ride only takes 10-15 minutes. As of last week, tickets were 6 and 7€ depending on which option you choose. One comes every 30 minutes and the other ever 25 minutes.

This was a business trip with an overnight stay.
Its close to the airport (20 euro max for a taxi or you could hop onto one of the 'hop on' buses for 6 euro and its a 10 minute walk from the first bus stop. Don't do this if its raining or if you don't have a brolley)
The hotel prides itself on its environmental credentials and this is evident around the hotel
The restaurant offers a good selection of food and the quality is really good
10 euro's gets you a taxi into the centre of Dublin to enjoy all that the centre of dublin offers.
Its also right next to the O2 arena so if you are attending an event here this is where you would want to stay.
Rooms are very well appointed and do not disappoint
Would I recommend this hotel - yes absolutely

Two friends and I stayed at this property for weekend in Dublin. Its a little bit out of the city centre, being in what appears to be a new residential and business area.
However the tram is right across the street providing easy access to the main points of interest.
The property itself is clean and modern with all the amenities you could need for a weekend away.
As mentioned previously a triple room consists of two twins and a camp bed and once that is down the space becomes a little bit tight.
But overall it was a comfortable and pleasant and we found it good value for money.

Spent 3 nights in this hotel recently to celebrate my wife's birthday. Room was very nice, generally very quiet, unfortunately doors have to be slammed shut to close as they don't have door handles which can be a bit annoying late at night. Bed very comfortable, restaurant and bar area was spacious with plenty of seating, and it needs it when there is something major going on at the O2 opposite. One Direction were playing there while we were there and hotel was packed. Staff were friendly and helpful, hotel is well away from the town centre but the tram service, which runs every few minutes, is right outside the door so location is fine. All in all a very pleasant stay and I wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again were I to revisit Dublin.
