“Very Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Went to this hotel earlier this year and it really was a nice treat surprisingly easy to find just at the O2 we weren't there for any concerts just to relax for the night and some shopping.First impressions last and at first glance its a cold and sterile building but meeting the fabulous repletion staff it felt warm and welcoming hats off to who ever trains the staff because each one is on the a game.We stayed in a executive which was great with a balcony the room was stop less with everything we would want the wifi worked great bed comfortable great room.We went wandering in dublin for a while which is access as the luas stops just outside hotel which is great.Bar was funky with a great vibe a little expensive for some drinks but I won't complain.Breakfast the next morning was amazing the care and attention shown was great to see I will stay again and again.

This is a styish, modern and new hotel. I liked the location, but it might be a little out of the way for those who want night life. It is close to the quay and a nice place for a run. Only short trip on the light rail at the front of the hotel to city centre. Rooms were spacious, well appointed and we had a lovely balcony (but it was a little cool to use it). Food was OK (my son liked the room service and we ate several times at the bar) but could be better. The public areas are impressive and comfortable. I really liked the ambience of the hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay in the gibson.

I was so glad to see that you and your son enjoyed your stay with us, particularly that you found the hotel so comfortable and our location suited you.

Hopefully the next time we see you it will be a little warmer and you can enjoy the balcony more!

While the Gibson is on the outer edge of "walking distance" and maybe just too far for a walk at night, the accommodations are beautifully modern and our rate was very competitive. Best to access downtown Dublin from the light rail/train that stops right outside the hotel, on a crisp morning you can still walk to where the nightlife is (if you're wearing a pedometer, consider it a plus). We were able to store our bags with no difficulty and when the room was ready, we were VERY impressed. Comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, and couldn't really ask for anything more. You will not be disappointed.

I loved my stay at the Gibson, myself and my partner stayed in the executive suite and it was really spacious, had a huge terrace over looking the point village. The room was really modern and spotlessly clean. Staff were very helpful, food was delicious and room service was excellent. We didn't want to leave.

I recently won a one night stay here through 2fm for an event in the O2. I honestly could not find one fault from entering to leaving this hotel. If has lovely modern rooms and restaurant/bar. It is literally a 30 second walk from the O2 which is great. I will gladly return here.

Great hotel. Very modern and stylish. Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Not too impressed by the restaurant, but it was OK. Nice bar area. SPA on the 6th floor with sauna which was a pleasant surprise. Also a gymnasium.

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. 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
