I recently stayed at the Gresham Hotel with my sisters and Mom during an annual Chrsitmas trip to Dublin. I can't enthuse more highly about our wonderful stay. The staff and service were excellent from our check-in at reception to our departure. The staff were exceptionally friendly and keen to make our stay totally enjoyable.

The Gresham is a lovely hotel which has recently been re-furbished with an elegant foyer perfect for taking afternoon tea (which we did) and people watching. The breakfast was superb and the bar serves fantastic cocktails with staff eager to recommend a new tipple. As the weather was so bad - we tried out Toddy's bistro which was good value for a relaxing meal in a nice atmosphere.

Overall, the Gresham is a great place to stay from the excellent service, fantastic staff and great location - visitors to Dublin can't go wrong if they decide to stay here

My husband and I recently spent a few days visiting Dublin and choose to stay at the Gresham Hotel. The hotel deserves every one of its four stars.Excellant staff, beautiful decor and smack in the centre of Dublin city. The food in the Writers lounge is excellent and very good value for money.

We were in Dublin midweek for a concert in the Olympia and the hotel is a leisurely 10 minute walk away from the theatre. The front desk staff were very welcoming and friendly.Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There was ethernet or wi-fi for internet access. We had a drink in the bar before going out, which had a lively mix of patrons, young and not-so-young. The following morning check out was hassle free. I would highly recommend the Gresham to all types of travellers, business or leisure. Why stay out of town when you can get great rates and all the amenities right in the middle of town?

the hotel is located ideally for city centre shopping and close to all types of public transport. If you choose to stay here included the full irish breakfast (the porrige is the best) and toddy's bar is great for a drink and meal in the evening. I've stayed for a christmas shopping break for the last two years and would highly recommend it.

The Gresham may not be the the cheapest hotel in Dublin but it is surely the best. It's location is second to none. Perfect for shopping, theatres, restaurants, The O2 and sporting venues, with the vast majority within walking distance. The money you save on taxis compensates for slight premium.
Staff are very diligent and attentive. The rooms are well equipped and very clean. The food is as tasty as the bed is comfortable.
An evening stroll through the cobbled streets of Temple Bar is a must with The Porter House being a great place to wet your whistle.
