I stayed here with some girlfriends to get away before christmas.Great hotel, lovely rooms. I always check out the shower before anything and was delighted with the spacious rain shower, beds were compfy the overall decor and feel to the room was pleasing. Would have preferred a little kettle for my tea as we all failed miserably in using the coffee machine to make tea... And the Irish do love their tea. All The reception staff i encountered were very friendly and helpful and will go out of their way for you. Front of house was let down by the stern grumpy doorman on Friday. Breakfast was great .. Loved the white (spicey) and black pudding. We had a drink at the bar both nights before heading out, the prices were similar to what you pay in town. They have nice nibbles but you have to ask for them. The bar was pretty soulless as I feel the staff can make all the difference, there was no Irish bar men for a bit of craic. The hotel is in a great location.. 5 mins walk up to the main drag.. But quietly positioned beside st Patrick's cathedral. We had a lovely Irish meal in Gallaghers boxty restaurant in temple bar. Overall it's a great hotel with good staff but you could be in any city in the world once you step through the door .. I don't think we came across any Irish staff the whole time we were there.

This is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. Friendly and efficient reception staff, lovely modern spacious room, and excellent buffet breakfast. It is situated within walking distance of all the main attractions in Dublin which makes it an ideal base for a sightseeing trip. We enjoyed cocktails in the bar and found them to be delicious but a little bit pricey. Room service and mini bar were also very pricey, had a little bit of a shock when we checked out! Despite that I would definitely recommend the Radisson Blu if you’re staying in the area. And I’d also like to say a special thank you to the team who put together my gorgeous birthday breakfast and cake and got my day started in style.

Room Tip: Business class rooms are superb. Enjoyed watching TV in the bath!

Upon arrival we were treated very warmly by the staff, who upgraded us to a Business Class room which was a very nice surprise! Our room (520) was on the 5th floor and had a great view over the city - we could see Dublin Castle! Very spacious bedroom, with space to lounge to watch the plasma TV, or play games on the laptop on the large work desk. The bathroom was spectacular - separate two person shower and a large bath, perfect for relaxation. The bed was large and comfortable for resting on, although both my boyfriend and I kept waking up on all three nights that we were there, I'm thinking maybe the bed was too hard. The buffet breakfast had a great variety and was delicious - definately eat breakfast here if you can. A special mention goes to Cheng, the front-of-house staff who checked us in - she is very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about the local area. She gave us some good suggestions about how to make the most of our time in Dublin, including suggesting that we purchase the City Sight-seeing Tour bus tickets (valid for two days) which we did. Will definately stay here again when we come back to Dublin in a couple of years.

Dec 6-7 2013. Arrived in Dublin early and chanced our arm by popping into hotel at circa 10am. Thought we'd just leave our bags but guy at reception said room was ready so we checked in..great. Good sized room and very modern bathroom,shower room for 2 easily ;)

Next morning breakfast was superb, loads of choice...you'd be worlds fussiest if you couldn't find something to eat. Didn't buy any drinks in hotel so can't comment on prices in house..temple bar area only 10 mins max from hotel very easy and comfortable walk. Found Dublin to be a vibrant relaxed buzzing city, some things overpriced but overall really good.

One of the best hotel I ever stayed. We were upgraded to Business Class room - very spacious room and bathroom. We had w great view over the Dublin Castle. Breakfast was very tasty. Personel was extremely friendly and helpful. Location is perfect - few minutes from Castle, Guiness Storehouse, Grafton Street, Temple Bar. We enjoyed our stay very much and if we are back we will definitely stay at Radisson.
