“Great location & homely meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Was pleasantly rewarded when I found this gem of a hotel. The staff were helpful and busy. I enjoyed the carvery dinner - felt like a homecooked meal - perfect after so much travelling. The rooms were nice but not outstanding. The tram line is right outside the hotel which I wasn't expecting so there is some noise from that but this didn't bother me during the night. Nice roomy bathroom. Breakfast was great - no waiting for me even though the staff were run off their feet.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Lower Abbey St have noise due to the trams running along the street.

Its all about the location at Wynns hotel Dublin.This once elegant old hotel is now showing its age and in need of some T.L.C as the cracks are begining to show.
While the the hotel is convenient for all Dublin has to offer O'Connell street is riddled with undesirables looking for easy pickings
access to the hotel is via steps and is hard for mobility restricted to reach.
Rooms are ok but dated and rooms at the front suffer from street noise.
Staff try hard but are snowed under.
Breakfast good and plentiful.

this is our second time staying at Wynns Hotel ( NOT always easy to get accommodation there due to its popularity)with great ease we got the LUAS from Heuston Station,given a great welcome-- though receptionist sounded non national-- which added to the Dublin "flavour".. our early evening meal left NOTHING to be desired...good service with a smile along with amazing food and a fine bottle of wine,,,, after which we set off to see "THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS".. Though not at the Abbey (due to renovations) we were treated to a stunning performance at Belvedere College..Being the opening night we just had one small complaint ie the "dreaded deaths of 1916 took far too long !! we returned to Wynns ON FOOT at 23hrs though had been advised to get a taxi.... but only about 3 or 4 were available..we felt a little uncomfortable but stayed very close till we arrived at hotel and welcomed back by the porter.. Breakfast was amazing..my husband had "egg benedict" whilst i opted for the traditional irish one.. ONn day 2 we took the DART to Bray..passing by delightful places of beauty..we actually wern'nt totally aware of the NOTEWORTHY place we were visiting---- THE HOMELAND OF KATIE TAYLOR... we thoroughly enjoyed a long stroll on the well kept promenade after which we enjoyed chilled wine and a light seafood salad... we were blessed with beautiful sunny weather while in Dublin,Staying at Wynns made it all the sunnier....THANKS TO ALL THE STAFF
C A..

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back so that LUAS BELLS will not disturb you !

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.
