Stayed here for a concert in the 02. Location is just next door to the 02 arena. Hotel room are very modern and balcony is a nice treat. Food in the bar is an Asian cuisine and the resturant is pricey. However curtains and blinds were stained in blood or something similar

Stayed at the Gibson for 1 night before catching the ferry. It was really convenient for the port and I had the best sleep in a week.
We ate in the bar, the food was Asian style, very good, a good atmosphere and swift service. Breakfast the next morning was tasty with a wide choice and quality coffee.
I left a notebook and when I called about it the staff were very helpful, they found it called me back and emailed, and posted it back to me. Special thanks to Michelle on reception!

Rooms very comfy with modern decor and lovely powerful shower.

I will certainly stay there again when I travel to Dublin.

I've stayed in the Gibson for about 3 times in total to date, and I can't recommend this hotel enough. Every member of staff is very friendly and it's in an excellent location just adjacent to the o2, perfect when going to a concert. The food was delicious and the service is always great. I have every intention of staying in The Gibson Hotel anytime we're staying in Dublin.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor this time and it seemed quieter than our previous stay.

Stayed here for 1 night, was attending concert in 02. Great location for the 02, could not get any closer. Room was clean, big and had all that we needed. Complimentary water was appreciated in the morning!! Bar was very busy, good vibe about it, service was excellent and with a smile. Had the shared platter, wouldn't rave about it, was o.k.. The restaurant was busy so I would take that as a sign of the food being good. Overall great location, with Luas stopping at the door, friendly and clean. Would stay again and would recommend.

Stayed in the Gibson for 1 night for a concert. Perferct location as it right next to the O2 with a Luas stop directly across from the hotel, allowing you quick and direct access into the centre of Dublin. Rooms are superb and I couldn't fault them in any way. Staff are very friendly and very welcoming. I have to state that the breakfast on offer was just perfect, quality and selection of food perfect for adults and kids. The only issue I had was with the evening menu, it is very limited and not very appealing and kids offerings whilst looked good really had a fast food feel to it. Taking that issue into account, it still is an exceptional hotel and would definitely recommend the hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for one night for a concert and to celebrate my Husbands Birthday. We were upgraded on arrival which was a lovely surprise.The hotel is just wonderful. Right across from the O2 you couldn't get any closer. The staff are wonderful and made us feel right at home. They ask us if there was anything we needed just to let them know. The food in the hotel was great and there was great choice at breakfast with fantastic staff checking that we had everything we needed. . The hotel itself is very clean and has everything you could need for a break away.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra to have a room at the front of the hotel with a balcony. Wr had a fantastic vie...

Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. 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. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
