After a lot of looking we chose Buswell's for our three days in Dublin and the hotel did not disappoint. It is a quirky floor layout but the hotel is charming and Irish and Old School in the best way. A great 'tea' and the breakfast is excellent. We had dinner once in the hotel and we would have done...

We stayed here 5 nights total....the 1st night we arrived in Dublin and then four nights at the end of our trip 15 days later. Its a three star hotel....very nice rooms....good breakfast but no fresh fruits. After having fruit for two weeks in the country this was disappointing. That's the only negative I have. They have a friendly bar... More

We stayed at Bushels for two nights at the start of a Rick Steves tour of Ireland. The hotel is centrally located south of the Liffey - just a few blocks from St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square and Trinity College and Grafton Street or even the Temple Bar. We found it to be a wonderful base. Our room was... More

Buswells is a lovely hotel in a wonderful section of Dublin; it is a step into the elegance of the past and the convenience of the present day. The common rooms are beautifully done with a nod to the past, and guests can have tea or coffee in the comfort of living rooms with the day's newspaper and pleasant conversation.... More

I've been staying at Buswells for years, but have never thought to dine in the bar room for dinner. This trip, however, I'm staying at TCD for studies and I've found Buswells to provide a great Irish meal at a very reasonable price. The space itself is charming and reminiscent of an older Dublin. It's lovely to pop into for... More

This hotel was perfect for exploring Dublin. You can easily walk to Grafton Street, Trinity College, and St. Stephen's Green (a beautiful park) is right across the street. Our room, number 97 was quite large with a king sized bed and was very quiet. (We had requested the latter when we made the reservation so we're very happy it was... More

Everything about this hotel is perfect. The odors are genuine...many years of memories will do that to a place right? But the rooms are perfectly kept and are updated just enough to make them modern but not lose the charm. The staff is exceptional. Sophie at the desk was absolutely wonderful, explaining every little thing we needed to know as... More

Buswells Hotel is a historic property in central Dublin, across the street from the National Museum (Archaeology). It is easy walking distance to Grafton Street, Nassau Street, and Trinity College, but in a quieter area. Our room was spacious and the breakfast is very good. Excellent value and great service, and they also had good advice on "tourist things to... More

Buswells Hotel is very centrally located in Dublin, closed to popular sites like Trinity College, Grafton Street and the Temple Bar. Agree with other reviews that hotel layout is tricky, particularly set of stairs that may be needed to get to your room (after taking the elevator!), not very practical with luggage. While room and bathroom were not large, they... More
