“Great hotel, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I stayed here with my wife and had a really good time - the staff were really friendly and helpful, the food in EAST was lovely (and there was no shortage of it!) and the room was perfect. Best of all were the cool blankets in the cupboard - for the first time in my life I was seriously tempted to steal something...!

Room Tip: Stayed in a penthouse suite and could not have asked for anything more

Dear David M,
Thank you for the lovely review and for choosing The Spencer. I am thrilled to hear that you and wife enjoyed your stay with us and your evening in "East". Our Penthouse is our finest room and the views from its wrap around balcony is absolutely stunning. While there is an additional fee for booking the Penthouse - some experiences are priceless!

I hope to see you in The Spencer soon and extending the warmest of welcomes.

Best Wishes,
Eddie Sweeney

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions in the past 12 months
It is my first choice hotel when in Dublin as the location is very convenient for the IFSC
I like the well equipped gym and the good length swimming pool
The rooms are fairly standard and you normally get a dressing gown with slippers
The rooms do not have a trouser press but normally have irons and an ironing board
The beds are always comfortable and there is not usually much noise at night
The breakfast is OK but on occasions the food is not hot and that puts me off having the cooked food
There are eateries nearby for evening meals and Connolly station is also not far away
If you have meetings in the IFSC then this probably the best place to stay

Room Tip: I prefer room on front but high floor

Dear Colin H,

I am glad to hear that The Spencer has become your first choice in Dublin and thank you for the kind review. It is always great to hear from our regulars.

I ensure you that all the temperatures of cooked items on our breakfast selection are monitored and recorded. Cold foot should not be an issue. Let us know if you if do encounter it again. While the team take every precaution to excel, there is always improvements that can be made.

Looking forward to seeing you at your next stay.
Best Wishes,
Eddie Sweeney

Couldn't fault anything about this hotel. Great location, around a 15min walk to the 3 arena and around 20min walk from Temple Bar area etc alongside the river. Large rooms even with the cheapest rates, with great views out onto the river. Peacefully quiet to get a good nights sleep and the rooms are equipped with the additional small luxuries; robes, slippers and White Company toiletries. Added bonus is the pool and spa area, which we enjoyed relaxing in after a day sightseeing. Plenty of restaurants and cafes around as the hotel is situated in the Financial District, and so tailored to the workers. Final point is that the hotel is very accessible from the airport, either using the hotel shuttle bus or the 747 bus. Will most definitely stay here again when we return to Dublin!!

Dear Chunky90,
Thank you for the lovely review. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we appreciate your very kind words on our location.

In my opinion, The Spencer is one of the easiest hotels to access from the Airport both driving or taking other forms of transportation. Which means joining us in The Spencer won't be a stressful start to any trip to Dublin.

I am happy to hear that you couldn't fault anything about this hotel and I hope the next time you stay with us that the team can offer a bit of magic and even further improve your view on us.

Best Wishes,
Eddie Sweeney

Dear Holly7621,
Many thanks for the kind review and for joining us in The Spencer. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and for your very pleasant comments on the hotel. The next time you join us, I hope that you put through a request for one of our river facing views. It is hard to think of a better place in Dublin to watch the sunrise, or set.

Best Wishes,
Eddie Sweeney

In a brilliant location lovely rooms and would definitely recommend it. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Louie Walsh was at a fashion show here when we arrived but gave the impression that he doesn't like people from Northern Ireland as when I asked him for a photo he replied " no Nordies " but we still got a photo

Dear loveshack14,

Many thanks for the kind review and lovely comment on the team here at The Spencer.

It is always surprising to see all the face faces that pop into us and very interesting to see how they are off-screen!

The team looks forward to welcoming you back to The Spencer soon.

Best Wishes,
Eddie Sweeney

P.S. - I am glad that you didn't take Louie's comments to heart!

We stayed in a suite in the Spencer hotel and it was pure luxury! Very spacious, with a separate living room with a TV, a bedroom with another TV and an extremely comfortable bed and a gorgeous bathroom with White Company toiletries.

The breakfast was fantastic with a huge range of delicious food. The service throughout our stay was amazing, and a huge thank you in particular to Victoria at the front desk for being so great and going that extra mile!

Looking forward to staying here again- I certainly won't be going anywhere else in Dublin!
