My girlfriend and I booked in to the Gibson to celebrate our engagement, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. First off, we were upgraded to a Junior Suite by the staff and had a note left in our room congratulating us, with a few chocolate strawberries and fancy muffins. the room itself was fantastic and the balcony was large enough to have a party on! The room also came with robes and slippers, ironing board, fridge (no mini bar) and a large flat screen TV. I know this was a suite but from some of the other rooms we passed, they didn't look that much smaller and I think a lot of them had balconies as well.
We booked room only, but I think breakfast was €10 each per day which is very good for hotels, not to mention Dublin! Having said that, we stayed in bed so can't comment on how good/bad it was.
Positives: Prices are very good for Dublin. Luas and O2 Arena outside the hotel door. Very trendy. Staff were excellent and really seemed like they enjoyed working there, something you can't fake.
Negatives: Views from the hotel aren't great (Dublin Port one side and Railway yard the other) and it's located in an area that was undergoing extensive redevelopment which has ground to a halt. €14 per night parking.
I'd definitely go back!

With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel.

Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal.
