Reviewed January 6, 2014

Had a fantastic 2 night stay with a large group of friends over St Patrick’s weekend in March 2013.

Large, bright modern hotel with generous rooms, good amenities and the most varied, good quality breakfast I’ve ever seen!

Slightly out of town (directly opposite the O2) but good access into the city centre – the tram stop is literally right outside the entrance and taxis are easy to come by.

Would recommend / stay here again

Our business meeting took place in a very appropriate location – the inspirational Gibson Hotel located in Dublin’s docklands, adjacent to the O2. The Gibson is named for the iconic rock guitar but is pitched and styled as a whimsically contemporary hotel, confident and sure of its look and touch and targeting a hip but discerning audience. Designed by Dublin based architects, Scott Tallon Walker, natural day light is a huge feature of the property around the public areas, the conference and banqueting suites and the guest rooms themselves. Set around 2 internal courtyards the guest rooms are sleek and restful, combining great technology (including free 100 MB broadband), inspiring art and generous, airy space. Meeting space ranges from the Stratocaster Suite which can seat 200 on rounds to the Rickenbacker which can take 16 boardroom style. Meetings rooms can be set conventionally or Google-style with beanbags. Finally the public spaces are particularly pleasing, most interconnecting with hidden outdoor spaces that feature water and giant sized bamboos. You’re in the heart of the city but your heart can be in a Amazonian rainforest, if that’s what you want. The Gibson Hotel is one element in an ambitious urban project which, when finished, will be know as the Point Village. From the public spaces of the property you’re afforded a bird’s eye view of the “new” Dublin including the magnificent Aviva Stadium on the south side of the River Liffey.

The team at the Gibson is led by another corporate maverick, the inimitable Adrian McLaughlin. From his Twitter profile (@adrianmcl) I see he shares some interests with me – ” … Dad, food, surf, wine, golf, travel”. He’s been at the Gibson almost a year and any of the team that we spoke with on Friday had only positive things to say about him and his empowering, enabling leadership style. I’m pretty sure there’s a wild marketing gene in Adrian because he has just come up with a new hospitality suite concept: The Speedo Lounge. Complete with appropriately clad manikins and suitably homoerotic artwork the Speedo Lounge will be unleashed on an unsuspecting Dublin public on Tuesday next. Adrian and Keith Boyle (@KBoyle12) have even changed their twitter avatars to match the new initiative. So if you’re looking for somewhere unusual for your barbecue give John Nicholson or Stephanie Hughes a call. You’re destined to get a full house if only for the curiosity of seeing what The Speedo Lounge looks like.

I stayed in The Gibson Hotel recently and have only good things to say. Excellent hotel, with clean comfortable bedrooms and excellent showers. Superb vale for money @ €80 per room, breakfast not included.

Service was excellent with no delay at check in or check out. We checked in 30 mins early and this was not a problem. Parking available and reasonable at €14 per day/night.

Located at the doors of the O2 Arena, on a Luas stop and only three stops from Abbey St.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed in the Gibson hotel yesterday the 3rd of January for one night. The hotel is absolutely stunning. We upgraded to to an executive room on arrival at 35 euro and we had our own balcony. The views are great looking over the city. We had a two course meal in the restaurant, service was very professional and the food was so good. Really enjoyed the stay and will be looking out for more great deals. Can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: upgrade to executive room its wroth the extra money

Stayed in the Gibson on New Years Eve and it was amazing. I had booked the new years eve package which included dinner from the German market which was fab! The room was spotless, complimentary water in the room is a nice touch, the shower is so powerful and spacious. The hotel was so quiet I didn't hear a thing from our neighbours even though the hotel was really busy. Checking in and out was a quick and friendly. Can't wait to return.

Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat.

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.

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
