“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

I'd highly recommend this hotel if you're staying in Dublin. The hotel is located within in walking distance of just about everything. The staff was all very friendly and courteous. The wifi was fast and free. Shower had great water pressure. There were three of us staying in a room and they gave us three beds, so one person didn't have to sleep on a cot. Overall, a great hotel if you need to stay somewhere in Dublin and don't want to pay a fortune.

We stayed here for two nights & also stayed 2 years ago. It is very conveniently located for Lansdowne Rd & Central Dublin is about a 20 minute walk or 8 euro cab fare. The room was clean & comfortable, with wifi. The staff were friendly & helpful. There are a lot of cafe's & pubs nearby, so we didn't eat in the restaurant. I like the hotel bar, it was lively & fun. The canal is right by the hotel so there is a nice area to sit & watch the world go by...

I stayed at the Mepsil for couple of days to attend some meetings in Dublin. The hotel was located close to the meeting venues and you could walk to all places. The hotel rooms and the interiors were a bit run down and need upgrading. I had a room with the canal view which was nice.The restaurant seemed pretty decent.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the canal have a good view

Thank you for your recent review of the Mespil Hotel Dublin.

Good to hear that our location suited your needs while attending meetings in Dublin and that you could walk to all the places locally. Sorry to read that you found the bedroom a little dated however we are in the process of updating these rooms and we are receiving very positive feedback from guests who have stayed in the upgraded rooms. I know you enjoyed the canal view from your bedroom…which is an added bonus for a city centre location.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Dublin.

Thank you for taking the time to post your recent review.

My daugher had her son's christening party in The Mespil Hotel last Sunday 4th March in the restaurant for 35 adults and 12 children of varying ages.
A section to the back of the restaurant was set up for our function and we had the full use of the restaurant from 2 until the last guests left at 8pm. The room was bright and airy and the children were able to play without disturbing anybody else in the hotel.
The staff were fantastic, very polite, courtious and nothing was too much trouble. As the rugby was on, some of the men watched the match in the bar and the waitresses served their meals without making a big issue of it.
Regarding the menu, it was amazing, we had 3 choices of starters, mains for the adults and a selection of foods for the childrens menus. The children were served first which lead to very happy relaxed parents. Some of our guests had food intolerances and the chef prepared the salads to suit the requirements.The quality and portion sizes were top class, the food was fresh and every dish looked like it was cooked individually. Extras were offered to all the guests.

As some of the guests came from the UK, they stayed in the hotel and found the staff were helpful and friendly and this added to the occasion.

As this was my daugher's first child's Christening, they were thrilled that everything went off so smoothly and they would highly recommend the hotel for both its convience but also for the way in which they were made to feel very special.

We are delighted that your family and friends enjoyed your grandsons christening so much last Sunday.

It was great that you had such an enjoyable event at the Mespil Hotel and I hope we will have the opportunity of welcoming you and your family back to the hotel in the future.

I couldn't compliment this hotel enough, great location, service and rooms. The buffet breakfast in the morning was very good, one of the best I've had, great selection and constantly refreshed. I wouldn't say it was good for a luxury getaway but for the price you can't go wrong

Room Tip: I stayed on the 4th floor and the rooms seemed newly decorated

We stayed at the Mespil for a couple of months recently while our house was being renovated. The hotel is in a very good location close to the city centre and is excellent value. The staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Our room, while slightly dated, was both comfortable and warm, and it was possible to open the windows to let in fresh air. Breakfast is very good and the food on offer both at lunchtime and in the evenings is very tasty and good value, with a number of special deals available. We would certainly stay at the Mespil again and would highly recommend it.
