We stayed at The Gibson with our two young children and it was the first time we hadn't stayed in the city centre, and I must say we will definitely be returning (in fact my husband and I have already been with a crowd of friends). It is a great location whether driving down or getting the train the Luas drops you at the door. We ate in the restaurant with the kids for which they had a seperate menu and I'm always instantly more relaxed when the waitress brings colouring in paraphernalia. We went to a show in Bord Gas and walked from there to grafton street (with a 7and 4year old)-granted it was a lovely day! Although they don't have a pool we managed to keep the kids entertained and the advice of the staff was spot on. jumping on the Luas literally outside the door was novelty enough but we disembarked in town and went to the Leprauchan museum rounded off a perfect trip. Food staff and service were all 10/10.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
