Wynn's Hotel

Reviewed October 2, 2012

This hotel is very convenient to O'Connell Street (shopping, bars, restaurants) with a Luas tram stop right in front of the hotel. The welcome we received was fantastic and gracious. The food in the restaurant was great - but beware it gets very crowded at breakfast (need more servers). Dinner was equally great. If you are looking for a centrally located hotel - Wynns is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor to avoid the noise of the tram and any parties that may occur

Its all about the location at Wynns.Staff try hard but seem to be snowed under. The hotel is getting on a bit (aren't we all) and the cracks are begining show.rooms at the front suffer from street noise.
Elderly guests struggle with the steps at the front and the heavy room doors.
Breakfast was good and plentiful
There is something about this hotel that makes you overlook the shortcomings. It has a certain charm,like Dublin its self

When I told my cab driver I was staying at Wynn's, he said, "In de old days, dat was known as the priests' and nuns' hotel". Presumably they chose it for reasons of discretion as then Lower Abbey Street would have been quiet. Now the streamlined trams of the Red line glide silently along it.
The tram stop is right outside the hotel. Walk a dozen paces to the left on leaving the hotel and you are on O'Connell Street. Walk thirty paces to the right and you are at the doors of the Abbey theatre. This hotel could scarcely be more central.
As other reviews have stated, this is a traditional hotel. Some tiffany glass on the outside canopy, polished wood inside, thick carpeting, a panelled lift says it all. The bar is the sort of bar you would expect to find in Dublin.
The staff are friendly and obliging. But you would expect that of the Irish, of course, except that many of the staff are actually from Eastern Europe.
My room was a twin room, very comfortable although may be on the small side. It had solid furniture in the form of a large wardrobe, desk and fireside chair, There was a small wall-mounted television.
The bathroom was a strange - almost bizarre - mixture of old and not so modern. There was a large oval acrylic bath with jacuzzi fittings (about 1980) but the brass taps (faucets) were from the 1920s. Still everything was clean, the water was hot and towels were fluffy and dry.
The restaurant at the front of the hotel is in the grand style. Two aspects of breakfast I can commend: the availability of hot porridge and the delivery of tea in a good sized teapot.
As an old-fashioned sort of chap myself, Wynn's suited me fine.

Room Tip: Get on the front if you are a tram spotter. No views at the back.

My husband and I spent our last night in Dublin at Wynn's, on the busy north side of the Liffey River (at the beginning of our Ireland vacation, we had spent four nights at a small townhouse type hotel at the elegant St. Stephen's Green). It was good to experience both. Wynn's is a 19th century, traditional hotel that is kept up well, with very nice, accommodating staff and a fine breakfast. We had a larger double-deluxe room on a high floor, which insulated us from the street, which is busy. From this location, we were able to walk to many historical sites. We had an excellent experience at Wynn's.

First time in Dublin for conference and experienced a very good 5-nights stay in this hotel. Both location and service are excellent. In the city center, easy to go everywhere. The double room (bed) is a bit small, but quite comfortable. Great breakfast as well.

The hotel has the best location you can hope for while visiting Dublin and had a really good price. You can walk to many of the attractions and the hop on and off tours have a stop right around the corner. My room was small as I expected but had everything I needed including a safe and toiletries. It was in decent shape and appeared clean. I didn`t have a view so it was quiet which is preferable since the neighborhood is very lively. Breakfast is included and is solid with choices of full or continental items. The staff was very friendly and helpful in regards to anything I needed. You can request breakfast before the official start time and I did that once but things weren`t quite ready on time. So I would suggest to allow for potential delays when you make the request. Overall, I would greatly recommend it.

Room Tip: Avoid a room facing Abbey street if you like quiet.

My wife and I just spent two nights at Wynn's on a short trip to Ireland. We took the train in from Cork, arriving at Heuston Station. The LUAS tram picks up at the station and dropps off literally in front of the hotel (and it's very quiet, no worries!). The hotel itself, though claiming to be recently remodeled, wasn't restored to A+ condition. Still, the rooms are clean and have nice amenities. The breakfasts were pretty good, and the staff is as helpful as possible. The one thing that gave me pause was when they hadn't heard of a couple restaurants in Dublin that get a high ranking here. Really, they haven't heard of O'Neil's? The north side of the Liffy doesn't have nearly as much to offer, but this hotel is so close as to make no difference. You're 5min from Temple Bar, for example. Overall I'd definitely recommend, but choose for the value and location.
