This Dublin Hotel provides a relaxed atmosphere for any visitor to Dublin. All of our 25 bedrooms are decorated to a high standard and offer guests all modern facilities. Our Dublin city centre accommodation is within walking distance to Grafton Street, one of Dublin’s main shopping streets.

Please note that this is a malicious review. This woman has never stayed in our hotel and has phoned reception to threaten us that she will put bad reviews on trip advisor if we do not give her the phone number of an ex member of staff. This is a malicious review !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stayed one night here but it was very satisfactory. We had a car so needed parking. But no problem Valentino sorted it out for me. The room wasn't great. Situated at the back of hotel with a view of the roof. But it was quiet and the bed was comfy. So no complaints there. Good

I'm so glad that we decided to stay at the Portobello Hotel when we visited Dublin. The hotel itself is above a pub, so if you are going to be staying here, keep that in mind. Valentino and the staff were completely amazing and continually went above and beyond to make us feel

I was really disappointed with the noise levels through the night. Both nights of our stay the bar was hosting parties. There was loud music blasting far past midnight and every noise came through to our room (there was no good sound barrier). We couldn't sleep through the

Is the town centre far
Hi - I lived in this area for a number of years so therefore know the area very well . - To answer your question - no its not far. You can cross the road and get a bus if you want or if you walk down about 10 minutes it brings you to Stephens Green (a lovely city centre park) and Grafton Street which is a lovely shopping area . A few more minutes walk (passing Trinity College) and you reach Temple Bar which is good for nightlife. A further few minutes and you reach O'Connell street (Henry street is off this and is also good for shopping) . Just ask the receptionist to point you in the right direction. Hopes this helps (ps the opposite direction from hotel brings you to a nice little area called Rathmines - it has some nice places to eat and also some good pubs. - Its only about 3 minutes walk from this hotel - again ask to be pointed in the right direction. Another tip - if you are arriving in Dublin airport - don't get a taxi to Portobello as it will be very expensive Instead go to tourist information desk and they will tell you where to buy bus tickets in airport and which bus to get outside airport to get you here. You will have to get 2 busses but it really is very easy and easy on your pocket too (you can also buy a return bus ticket to get you back to airport) Hope you have a lovely time

You would be looking at about a half hour walk to either of them or 10 mins in a taxi.
