Just back from a fantastic 3 night stay at The Gibson hotel. Seriously, if you are going to Dublin, stay here, it will be the best decision you'll ever make!
The Gibson Hotel is located in The Point Village which is a lovely quiet area beside the O2. The Luas tram stops right outside the doors of the hotel, jumping on this tram you are an 8-10min scenic tram ride in to the city centre (Jervis Street), walking that would probably be about a 20 min walk. It's in the financial district of Dublin and about two Luas stops up from the hotel is a nice area (Mayor Square) with lots of little cafes serving lovely fresh food and coffee, we took a nice stroll on the Sunday and had breakfast here. There is also a handy Marks and Spencers food shop here too. Breakfast in the hotel is 10 euro if you book the night before and includes a big fry up buffet, continental breakfast buffet, cereals, fresh fruits, fruits juices, unlimited tea, coffee and toast. Great value.
The hotel itself is a fantastic new modern building, very light and airy with a great terrace to sit out on and have a drink, we did this a few times during our stay! We also ate in the restaurant which serves a Thai menu, I got the Pad Thai and my friend got the Thai beef salad, both were delicious. Our hotel room was spotless, with all the amenities you'd expect from a great hotel, including, to my delight, a full size Tresemme hairdryer instead of your usual small useless hotel hairdryer, happy days!!! Brilliant print in the bathroom too which I wanted to take home with me. It was quite hot when we stayed and the AC in the room was a complete blessing :) Had 3 great nights sleep in this hotel, we stayed in a lovely quiet courtyard room.
We had our car with us, the hotel car park is underneath the hotel, you get a ticket as you go in, park, get the lift up to the hotel and inform them that you are parking there, overnight rate for hotel guests is 14 euro.
The service was amazing, staff all very friendly, happy to see you, polite and going out of their way to help you. As we were checking out I was helping myself to a sweet from their sweetie jars at the counter and the girl behind the desk gave me a paper bag and told me to take a few sweets with me for my journey home. it's the little things that count! Room service was prompt, quickly bringing us ice when we called for it.
We paid 240 euro for our 3 night stay in the height of Summer on a busy weekend in Dublin, to me this is outstanding value. I will be recommending this hotel to friends and family and anyone else who will listen to me!
We are already planning our return to stay here in November :)

Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal.
