We just got back from a week in Dublin. We love Dublin! We stayed at The Gresham the whole week and it was the perfect choice. Centrally located to all major attractions, the busline, restaurants. Had an overnight flight, so we arrived at the hotel about 10:30am. Having read a previous review that you weren't allowed up to your room until check in time, only allowed to store your luggage, I fully anticipated the same. When we checked-in the clerk looked on the computer, immediately found an available room for us, and sent us right up! We were so grateful to be able to take a 2 hr nap, then went out for lunch. The room was great, we stayed in the Leffey section, totally quiet at night, a/c worked fine, the bathroom was big and totally renovated with ceramic tile floor, marble walls and granite front of the tub, and we also had a separate shower! Previous reviewer was correct about no "scenery" out the window, but you have to consider you are in a major metropolis with lots of other bldgs around you. The only odd thing was the hair dryer was located and bolted down to the desk drawer. So you had to dry your hair in the room instead of using it in the bathroom. Which was a minor inconvenience. I would definitely stay there again.
