This is a very nice modern hotel with many great features. The main restaurants/bar is beautifully decorated with lots of space, a lovely atrium, and nice views of the city. The staff was very courteous, and helpful at all hours. Our room was well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was just ok. The standard full irish breakfast and continental breakfast spreads were generous. Both the scrambled and poached eggs were a bit off the day we tried them. If you get a special and have the breakfast included in your room rate it is not too bad. For the €15 that they charge non-residents I would go somewhere else in the city.
The Gibson is just steps from the Luas (local tram service), and a stones throw from the O2 venue. The Airlink bus, and local bus service stops right out front so transfers from the airport are very easy, even with a bunch of luggage. The downside about the location is that it is a little ways out from the city centre/Temple Bar area. The Luas only runs until about midnight. So if you are out and about for a late night you will probably end up taking a taxi for €10-12 from the city centre. All in all this is a great hotel for the price.

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.
