Reviewed July 4, 2013

We had just one night before our visit to Ireland ended, so to be in a luxury room, with a real good water pressure shower, a huge comfy bed with down comforter and temperature room control made us feel so good. Clean rooms, great lobby area, excellent 5 star breakfast services. Small but intimate lounge area. The service they offered by calling us a cab in advance, to wake up call, to lounge service was impeccable for Dublin. I only wish they had told us to take more time to be at the airport as we almost missed our flight. We went 2.5 hours in advance, but to go through pre-clearance and customs takes 1.75 hours alone. Air Lingus lines were extremely terribly long to start with. We only wished the hotel had told us in advance to allow for more time, say like 3.5 hours needed for jus back to the US travelers.

Immediately upon arrival we were greeted by the wonderful Concierge Connor. After checking in and finding out our room wasn't ready yet - we arrived earlier than expected Connor sat us down, went through a few options for our next day, and sent us down to the Hairy Lemon pub next door for an very good lunch. The rooms are on the smaller side but fairly standard for most hotels I've stayed in while in Ireland and Europe. The hotel has a high end feel that doesn’t dent your pocketbook too much. The turn-down service with chocolates was a nice touch. The hotel is situated a short walk away from St. Stephens Green and provides easy access to the Hop on, Hop off bus tour around Dublin. The breakfast offered provided many options including Porridge with a dash of whiskey, chocolate croissants, and poached eggs. The gnocchi for dinner was surprisingly exceptional! I would stay at the Brooks Hotel again in a heartbeat!

We booked this room for only one night, mostly based on its location. The location can't be beat -- parking right across the street and main sights like the castle, Trinity College, and Temple Bar all located within easy walking distance. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't have a record of our reservation, made through SLH.com, but they honored the rate for the deluxe room. The room we were shown to was large and very nice, but it turned out the air conditioning wasn't working. The hotel then moved us to another room, just as nice, but again the air conditioning didn't work. They finally moved us to another room, with working A/C. Unfortunately, this room seemed to be one of the few not renovated or it possibly was not a deluxe room. I was rather disappointed in the difference in the room, particularly given the price, but preferred being comfortable on a rather warm evening in Dublin. Overall, the hotel was good, great location, and I can't fault the hotel for their responsiveness... Just a shame about the A/C not working.

The Brooks Hotel was a great place for us to begin our first visit to Ireland. Although the hotel is pretty big (about 200 rooms, I believe), it has a boutique hotel feel to it. It is very well located in a part of Dublin that makes it possible for you to easily walk to many of the sights and places of interest. Our room was very comfy and they serve a delicious breakfast that you can enjoy by the windows, which look out onto the street. We received a very warm welcome from the concierge, Connor O'Connell, who is without a doubt the most gracious concierge we have ever met in our many years of traveling. Mr. O'Connell is so friendly, kind and warm: he immediately asked for our names and remembered them (and us) throughout our visit. We got the impression that he was always eager to do anything he could to ensure that our visit was all that we wished for. The rest of the staff was also very helpful and worked hard to help us feel welcome. We were traveling with another couple and I know they experienced the same warm greeting. The hotel has a giant area on the lower level where you can relax (for hours, or all day) that is akin to a super-nice living room, which was perfect for us since we arrived hours before the regular check in time. There is also a small workout facility, which looked fairly well-equipped, and seemed to be the exception rather than the rule in the hotels we stayed in in Ireland. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone- the staff is excellent, the facilities high quality, and the location- first rate.

Nice hotel in a good location. Not quite as good as I was expecting. The bed was nice.The room was clean. The breakfast we payed for didn't start until 8 AM on weekends. We had to leave for the airport before that time. On checkout the front desk clerk tried to charge me for someone else's room. It took 5 minutes to sort that out. The shower curtain did not hold the water in very well so my wife and I both caused an unavoidable flood with each shower. Minor complaints, but annoying none the less. Would stay here again.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Brooks Hotel Dublin. Our stay far exceeded our expectations. All the staff coud not have been more helpful and pleasant. The location for us was ideal, being very central, and the bedroom, restaurant and bar were all excellent. As we were touring Ireland by car parking was a serious consideration when selecting our hotel, and in this case I doubt we could not have chosen better. We would certaintly stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was a deluxe dble on the 2nd floor

We were back to Brooks Hotel Dublin for the May Bank Holiday holiday visit for Ireland's Bloom Garden Festival. We were thrilled to get a room for the busy holida.y weekend and we were so well look after from the caring staff.
On this occasion we attended a classic film show in their in house deluxe cinema that was for us a first night for a great weekends in Dublin.
Breakfast at Brooks is a great experience and a food spectacular that one will have to travel far to better, we will be back later on this year.
Kind regards to a wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Central city location, ideal for visiting shopping and theatre.
