Amazing rooms, quick check-in, Safi and Ruben went out of their way to make the stay incredibly special. Fantastic hotel with gorgeous surroundings. Food in the lobby lounge was also unbelievable. Will definitely be back.

I have stayed here many times and have always enjoyed myself but on this occasion I was disappointed to say the least . I stayed 2 nights and paid a hefty price as New Zealand were in town . Room was the usual high standard but breakfast was awful ..........in fact so bad we ate elsewhere on the second morning . I wanted a drink in the bar before we went to the game and were told that all tables were pre booked and they could not take us ,even though several tables were empty at the time .......so much for being a resident . I know Covid has changed many things and Staff issues are common but I also know that the price we paid was not worthy of the service we received . I think its time for a change

Just want to mention Erich who served us twice in the lounge. He was very professional and charming. All the staff were excellent actually, from the gentleman who checked us in, (I'm sorry I can't remember his name) to the gentleman who looked after our bags, and the concierge. The Room was clean and comfortable, the beds extremely comfortable, curtains are truly black out. The only negative, and I say this about every hotel, is there is nowhere well lit enough to sit and apply makeup, with a decent mirror. We ate dinner in the lobby area once. I'd say the food is mediocre for the price as was the wine. I know hotel prices are higher but you do expect the food to be cooked well. Mushy pasta and undercooked egg kind of jars a bit with lovely surroundings and excellent service. Breakfast was much better. The eggs Benedict, in all it's variations was excellent as was the service. We witnessed a senior member of the hospitality staff manage a very rude couple, that were making unreasonable demands, with great calmness and politeness. The afternoon tea wasn't great. Sandwich elements were dry, stale and some barely had anything in them. Scones were also dry, Jam and compotes accompanying were tart rather than sweet. I love that they serve clotted cream with it though! The desserts were mostly cakey and the whole thing felt quite stodgy. The champagne served with it was very nice, as was the jasmine tea. It is cheaper than the Westbury and the Shelbourne Afternoon Tea, but they are both delicious! The Spa experience wasn't great. Good luck getting a robe to fit if you're a UK 16+. It was mortifying and then the therapist asked me if I was there with my daughter, when I walked in with my friend who was just 3 years younger than me. I am recovering from a serious illness and her careless comments really upset me along with the robe situation. I went there the try to unwind and I came away feeling really awful. The therapist talked non-stop through the treatment. It was all generally, extremely unpleasant. So, if you're looking for just a very comfortable room, pleasant surroundings, truly amazing, 5 star service by a great hospitality team and a great breakfast I would highly recommend the Intercontinental. Just avoid the spa and maybe the pasta...

A real pleasure staying here. The service is warm and friendly whilst being totally professional. The room was a great size and has excellent facilities. The bar area is very congenial and the food served was excellent. Early ferry crossing, so had to miss breakfast.

I had the great pleasure of spending a few days in the InterContinental Hotel Dublin with my family for my birthday recently. This really is a beautiful hotel in every way & the ambiance all around the hotel is one of calmness. The bedrooms are extremely spacious, comfortable & so quiet. The staff are a dream to deal with, there is very much a 'can do' attitude, as nothing is a problem. The leisure facilities are lovely & again there is such a calmness in that area, that one can feel so relaxed. We dined in the restaurant & in the lounge area, the food is delicious & again the staff are super friendly & professional. This was a birthday treat & I must say it was most enjoyable from the minute we valet parked the car, until the minute we collected the car again from the valet. I can highly recommend this hotel. Thanks to everyone @ the InterContinental Dublin. We will hopefully be back for my next birthday.
