Very busy - good choice at breakfast although was advised would take 15 minutes to cook a poached egg - I thought surprising. Chose the scones to save waiting - average coffee taste - wonder what type of coffee bean. We moved to reception area for privacy - difficult to talk within the main breakfast area.

We arrived in Ireland, hopped on the airport-to-city bus and in a very short time found ourselves in the clean and leafy neighbourhood that houses the Mespil. A short, pleasant walk along the little canal lead us to our hotel. Check-in was efficient and friendly. We found our room clean, well-outfitted and comfortable. It proved to be an oasis of... More

I booked this hotel for myself and my boyfriend as a birthday treat, we stayed for 2nights (14th and 15th August)! The staff I'd been emailing and on the phone to couldn't have been nicer and left HappyBirthday chocolates and a card in the room for when we arrived. The bed was honestly so comfy and the room was lovely,... More

After flying into Dublin from London, my husband and I booked a single night at this hotel, before starting our cross-country tour of Ireland. I wished we would have had another night at this AMAZING hotel! During our stay in May 2016, the hotel had just undergone renovations and everything still looked new. The lobby, hotel bar and accommodations were... More
