I stayed at the Gibson while attending a conference at Dublin Convention Centre, but I would happily take a short break there with my partner. Opposite the O2 it would be a great base for any shows.
The hotel atrium and rooms are spacious and very quiet. Well equipped and very comfortable. I opted to dine in the bar with its oriental bar menu while the restaurant offered some good alternative choices and was the base for a good breakfast. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel is a short trip from the centre of town with good bus and tram connections. I chose to walk to the convention centre and then on into the city later in the day, but the 747 bus route to the airport took me very near to both and taxis were readily available.
By the way keep an eye out for the clock in the reception area. Very cool.

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.
