“A sanctuary filled with Irish angels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I can't recommend this hotel enough, nor compliment the Brooks staff—the entire staff—enough. We had an unexpected injury within hours of our arrival in Dublin and had to sit in the Emergency room of St James Hospital for 7 hours. Such a bad start to a vacation we planned for 5 months. I'm so glad I chose the Brooks Hotel after all my Trip Advisor research. Every Brooks employee went out of their way to make our 2-night stay comfortable, peaceful, and memorable and more so after they learned of the ER visit. They truly made us feel like a member of their family. The concierge, Connor, would not let us walk less than one mile to a restaurant that Bobby Flay reviewed because your "mum is a noble lass and all, but she deserves a horse and carriage" and insisted on called us a cab to drive us there. The manager, Tom, sat with us and charmed us with his sweet spirit and caring nature. And, Mairead, the young lady who was only a staff employee for 4 short days insisted on walking us to the nearest AirCoach stop so we wouldn't get lost, and actually pulled my Mom's luggage so she wouldn't be further encumbered. ANGEL! Beyond this, the breakfast was terrific. The dinner was OUTSTANDING. (seriously, the best goat cheese I ever enjoyed) and the rooms were immaculate and quiet. (Hotel is tucked away on a quiet side street, so we were able to sleep off the Jet lag). Of course, a big learning while traveling through Ireland was that the entire country is filled with beautiful, kind spirits everywhere you turn, but Brooks embodied this paradigm in every way, forever cementing a truly remarkable travel memory. Please, Brooks, keep being the change you want to see in the world

The Brooks Hotel has earned it's reputation among travelers and locals alike. The location is right in the heart of City Centre, a short walking distance from every local attraction and hundred's of restaurant's and pubs. Inside, is pure elegance and the service is impeccable. Please make sure to see Connor, the Concierge. He is delightful and so professional. I was there with a conference, but stayed an extra couple of days on my own. I mentioned to Connor that I needed to get to the airport, and he suggested a bus. On the morning of my checkout at 7am, Connor came to work 30 minutes early, took my suitcase and personally escorted me to the stop. He even waited with me until the bus arrived and would not take a tip! He just made me promise to return. All of the staff, from the front desk to housekeeping and the Dining staff were amazing. As for the dining, breakfast was homemade, cooked to order and buffet and included with your stay. The croissant were freshly baked throughout the morning. They came out hot and flaky and never ran out. Last, but not least, the rooms were impeccable and the hotel even offered a movie/drink night! For value, location, service and beauty, the Brooks Hotel is bar none.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor

This hotel is where you want to be to visit Dublin. We stayed three nights. Perfect location for walking or taking bus, close to all the must-see sites. Price is unbelievable! Great breakfasts. Staff extremely helpful. Rooms and baths outstanding!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are fine.

I stayed in a double room for one night in May. The room was medium/small but spotlessly clean, the bathroom was average in size, and it had a full bath (rather than the half shallow baths you often see in hotels). The hotel was quiet on the night I stayed, but I could see it being noisy at times from people on the street as it is at the edge of a busy area. It is very centrally located, mid way between the Georges Street restaurant area and the Grafton Street shopping area. The typical guest was a middle aged American tourist and the location really suited this type of person. Breakfast was above average in quality and hot food was waiter service plated food rather than a buffet. Cold food was a buffet. The evening meal was average, but you would be spoiled for choice for restaurants within 2 minutes walk of the hotel, from take away to sushi, a host of vegetarian and everything in between.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms will be quieter

A central location, comfortable hotel, lovely service - wonderful three night stay.
Connor and Sean, the Concierges, couldn't do enough...amazing! For breakfast either order
or buffet or both...bar makes a great Irish Coffee! True Irish service here.

Room Tip: Rooms ON Drury Street maybe affected by late night roof-garden bar across the street.

This is a very good small hotel in the heart of Dublin. Excellent w-fi throughout hotel, bar and restaurant. Rooms small but efficient and very clean. Excellent staff who know everything about Dublin and can direct you to non-touristy places and all the sights.

We stayed for three nights and were very impressed by the hotel staff, very friendly, breakfast was great, very varied and a lovley choice, Thought that the pillow menu was quite quirky but as I am allergic to feathers they bought me some wonderfully soft yet comfotable pillows and I slept like a dream. The hotel is situated just right, far enough away from Temple Bar but in easy walking distance to most things, the piano bar was very relaxing as after a hard day you didnt always want to go out into the town, and this was very pleasant with lovley tentative bar staff. Would certainly go back here 10/10
