The hotel is in the middle of everything. Close to the bus, rail and tram lines. The hotel is around the corner from the pedestrian mall. The restaurant serves typical Irish food and it is very good. The staff is great. The rooms are very well kept and the hotel staff will assist with every need. We had a special situation and it was well taken care of. If I were in Dublin again this hotel would be my first choice. The concierge (both of them) were great as were the desk clerks.

My mother and I arrived desperately jetlagged at 9a.m., which unfortunately was far too early to check in. I had emailed in advance to see if it would be possible and they couldn't guarantee it, and alas it wasn't. However, the concierge was beyond helpful and friendly. He stored our bags, gave us a map pointing out items of interest and directed us to the lounge to refresh and recoup. We ventured out to explore Dublin, returning deliriously exhausted around 1:30p.m., and even though it was still early to check in, a quiet room was made ready.

Unfortunately Ireland was experiencing an unprecedented heatwave and the AC just couldn't handle it. The hotel provided a fan and then eventually moved us to another much cooler room. Their suggestion, not mine! When we arrived to the new room, the concierge had our bags, I had the fan, and three members of housekeeping (including the supervisor) were in the room outfitting the beds to our specifications (no feathers and no wool blankets.) Just exceptional.

We ordered room service: Guinness Stew, Seafood Chowder and a dessert from the restaurant menu (not the room service menu). All was delicious and Mom declared at the end of the trip that The Brooks' chowder was the best she had in Ireland. Not "hotel" food at all.

The only quibble I have is that they charged me a portage fee for moving rooms. Given that I had already tipped the concierge, this seemed duplicative and unnecessary. Overall, I highly recommend this centrally-located hotel and its friendly, efficient staff.

We loved our stay at the Brooks hotel. Very good location for seeing all the sites in the central city. You have to email the hotel if you want to book a room for families (with a separate twin bed). The staff were great and the hotel is a real gem. I highly recommend.

An elegant boutique style hotel in downtown Dublin within walking distance to all the sites, shopping on Grafton Street, the Temple Bar pubs, the Guinness Factory and the Train station. The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and immaculate. The dining area is first class and the breakfasts are excellent with many choices of hot and cold. What really made our stay at The Brooks was the friendly helpful staff. From the front desk staff who were efficient and made you feel very welcome to the dining room staff who made every effort to ensure everything was perfect to Connor, the elegant Concierge dressed in tails who made our stay even more personalized by remembering our names and knowing many things about Canada. The Brooks was our base for our travels around Ireland. I highly recommend The Brooks and will definitely stay again when we are next in Dublin.

Room Tip: We stayed three separate times in the month of June. We were always at the back of the building in a...

In a first class location, in a really nice part of the city this hotel is a quiet unassuming quite luxurious surprise. My room was an exec room with some nice little touches - wives would definitely like the decor. It is very classy but feminine which is a nice break from the corporate boxes i usually stay in. My bathroom was a little tired but it was spotless and the products were 5 star which is something a lot of hotels have started scrimping on lately. The hotel has a classy bar and what looks to be a really busy restaurant which given all the local options is obviously a good sign. Breakfast was absolutely first class. Bricher muesli and my usual tester of two poached eggs was a joy - cooked perfectly. Genuinely the breakfast set up is as good as say the Ritz Carlton or Aghadoe Heights ( which are the best of the best IMHO ). Additional bits like excellent free wifi, ice box like in room AC and a good deal with the carpark across the road make this hotel a must visit for the clever traveller.
