Reviewed July 30, 2014

Very modern hotel right opposite the O2. A bit outside the Centre but the tram - luas - is right in front of the hotel and takes you to the Centre within 10 minutes, very convienent. Parking is easy in the parking below the hotel.
We had a spacious executive room on the 6th Floor. WiFi works very well in the room, bathroom is spacious as well with a very good shower. Only negative point is that the bed is small and short - no kingsize - and we did not find it very comfortable.
Bar is very modern as well and offers nice meals. Reception was very efficient on check in and check out.
Apart from the low quality of the bed, this hotel is really excellent.

Dear Donkie,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us.

I was so glad to read that you enjoyed so many elements of your stay. Should we have the chance to welcome you back to the gibson, please do not hesitate to request a room with a king size bed- not all our rooms have these, however some of our bedrooms do and we will strive to accommodate your request.

Kind regards,

Clare McGreevy

What a pleasure, I stayed for 4 nights this past weekend and had the best time ever. Fantastic staff, wonderful food and excellent location. It just doesn't get any better than the Gibson in Dublin!!!

Room Tip: Always try to be on the higher floors because the view is amazing

Modern, spacious, clean and welcoming! We think this is Dublin's best hotel despite not being in the city centre it has the Luas outside the front door and is also only a 20 minute walk to the centre. The rooms are fabulous, large with super king beds and well designed bathrooms, the bar and restaurant is great, with superb balcony overlooking Dublin docklands. We will definitely be coming back!

I stayed here for a weekend away with my husband and some friends. Given that there's not much to do, or even places to eat, around this location after the IFSC offices close around 6, the convenience of having LUAS stop just outside for getting to and from the city centre is great. The hotel is huge, enormous foyers, bar areas etc., so if you're looking for a quiet, intimate hotel, this is probably not for you. The rooms are bright and nicely appointed, though the view from our balcony of an abandoned building site below was a little unfortunate. It woud be perfect for anyone going to a concert in the O2. I'd certainly stay again, if I had reason to be around that part of Dublin, but it's probably a little too far from the centre for a Dublin City Break.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't overlook the adjacent abandoned building site

Nice modern hotel, rooms are big and clean. Food in the restaurant was lovely. Drinks are slightly over priced and the hotel is further out from the city than we would liked but over all really we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

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
