Wonderful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and luxurious (if a little bit dated). The location is a bit removed from the madness of Temple Barr but still has some great things to see/eat/do within walking distance and public transport nearby.

Hotel's Favorite
The Intercontinental Dublin is often advertised at Dubin's only "5 Star" hotel and I can confirm that the Intercontinental has definitely earned the right to be declared a "5 Star" hotel. This is likely one of the most luxurious yet comfortable hotels I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. From the minute you arrive all of the staff from the Doorman to Reception are extremely welcoming. The hotel is immaculate, in the elevators the brass plated doors are gleaming as is every detail within this hotel. Everything throughout the hotel is "First Class" so welcoming and comfortable it has to be experienced to fully appreciate the Intercontinental's superior standard. Our suite was luxurious, functional and comfortable even for an extended stay. The suite and bathroom were spotless with everything cleaned to perfection. We had a full size deep bathtub and a full glass walk-in shower. Both were beautiful and very much appreciated after a long day walking around Dublin. The food at the hotel is delicious, the breakfast buffet is extensive and of superior quality. Additionally you can order whatever you may like for breakfast and it will be prepared to perfection and guaranteed to satisfy. The Intercontinental is located in a high end residential area with numerous embassies located nearby. For transport the DART commuter train is a short two minute walk away delivering you in about ten minutes to the core of Dublin.One of the Front Office members ``Gary" really stood out with his welcoming professional attitude and generosity of his time to ensure we enjoyed everything we could in Dublin. If I were to pick anything I couldn't rave about, it would be the daily parking at 20 euros which is in line with other major hotels within the Dublin area. It would be without reservation or hesitation that I would highly recommend the Intercontinental Dublin to anyone looking for a truly relaxing and luxurious stay in Dublin's Only Five Star Hotel.

Dublin Intercontinental is just a top hotel. Great location. Fabulous professional staff. All so well trained, welcoming and so willing to help. Lovely rooms. Well furnished and spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast. A lovely pool and leisure centre. I can’t recommend it enough. Great location close to central Dublin.

From the moment we met Apple, it was evident that she takes great pride in her role. Her dedication to providing a comprehensive and informative tour of the hotel was truly commendable. Apple went above and beyond to ensure that we not only understood the layout of the venue but also grasped the finer details that make it a standout choice for our corporate gathering. What struck me most about Apple was her genuine passion. It was clear that she not only knew the ins and outs of the hotel but also had a deep understanding of the needs and expectations of her clients. Beyond her professional competence, Apple's friendly and approachable demeanor made the entire experience enjoyable. She took the time to connect with us on a personal level, making us feel not just like potential clients but valued guests. Her positive attitude and willingness to accommodate our specific requirements were truly appreciated. 10/10

When we visit Dublin we usually stay in town at a specific hotel. The Intercontinental was recommended so we decided to try it & it didn't disappoint. Our room was spacious, clean & well appointed; the common areas of the hotel beautiful. Staff were friendly & helpful. The nightly rate was exceptional & we loved Ballsbridge. We'll be back!

I really enjoyed my stay. Staff were 1st class as always. Attention to detail was second to none. The only place I would stay in Dublin. Breakfast was excellent and we dined in the lobby bar and again it was amazing as usual. I can’t wait to get back.

Our experience at the hotel was wonderful from start to finish. We’d taken a ridiculously early flight to Dublin so were exhausted when we arrived, and were able to check in early which was exactly what we needed, and so kind of the concierge. The bed was huge and ridiculously comfortable, and the bathroom was so luxurious. I had mentioned that we were celebrating our engagement and were surprised by a knock on the door and a delivery of some chocolates to celebrate. There was truly nothing we could have found fault with.

This is a lovely hotel. Right next door to the RDS. A great place to explore the whole of Dublin and with relatively easy access to Dún Laoire. Expensive. But a great treat. Had dinner in the lounge. Five of us. Food was mixed if we are very honest. Two of our group loved it while one was non-plussed. And too many supplemental prices on the menu, for my liking, given the accommodation prices. They cater very well for allergies. The room we stayed in was excellent and spacious. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever enjoyed in any hotel. Most of the staff were very engaging, attentive, courteous and friendly. One or two were more than a little cold. Parking cost €20 for the night.
