Mespil Hotel
4.5/5102 Reviews
The room is spacious and clean, the lobby service is comprehensive, and there is free parking. The location is next to the canal, and it is easy to get in and out. It is recommended!
Pembroke Townhouse
4.2/549 Reviews
Parking is complimentary and on a first come first served basis. The lobby has a simple desk in the centre, with complimentary coffee, water and Pastries nearby. Staff professional and friendly with payment taken on arrival. We stayed in the loft room, which has an upstairs section to fit 3 persons. There are snack and drinks available in room (pay for on checkout) and the bathroom is bright and clean. The beds are comfortable and carpet spot-less. The room overlooks the main street, which on a match day be noisy, but not something that is loudly apparent when the window is closed. A beautiful hotel and very comfortable in a well kept area.
Roxford Lodge Hotel
4.5/5102 Reviews
We stayed at the Roxford Lodge for 3 nights in September 2022. We arrived wearily after an overnight flight, at 10:00 am. While check-in is clearly stated to begin at 3 pm, the front desk provided us with complimentary tea and croissants in the front room while they readied a room of a guest who had checked out early. Not expected at all, but so appreciated. When it turned out later that our particular room was affected by some unexpected noise, the hotel staff again graciously accommodated our request for a room change the following day, and upgraded the room type as well. While the rooms could benefit from a little updating, the overall hospitality is reason enough to book a stay here. It appears that the lodge is owned by a woman and has an all-female staff, which was nice to see. The location is excellent. It is situated in a lovely neighborhood that is within a 20-minute walk to Trinity College and City Center. In addition, we found some great places to eat breakfast and dinner within a 5-7 minute walk. Thank you for a lovely stay!
Donnybrook Hall
4.6/531 Reviews
My only regret is that we didn’t stay here longer! The location is perfect, the accommodation is lovely, clean, new, comfortably welcoming... perfect! We had two rooms in the back off of the sun room/ dining room and they were charming. Our host was so nice and we were able to meet her dad the next morning on our way out. The neighborhood is fantastic, there are a few restaurants/pubs and shops within walking distance and a bus if you wish to go to City Center instead of the 15 minute walk. I can’t wait to visit here again, in 2020!! ***UPDATE well we all know what happened in 2020😣 hence we finally made it back in 2023. This time we were able to stay for 3 nights and I’m so glad we did!! We attended events at Energia Park and Aviva Stadium which we both an easy walk from Donnybrook Hall. We walked into City Center, it was maybe 25-30 minute walk. Leaving City Center we took the DART from Tara and Pe**** stations to the Landsdowne Rd station which is about a 10-15 minute walk from Donnybrook Hall. Nothing has changed, still the perfect location and the hospitality is superb. I honestly can’t wait to come back and stay here again!
Gleesons Townhouse Booterstown
4.5/538 Reviews
The environment is not bad and very new, the restaurant environment is very good, the steak is good, the breakfast is a bit late
Uppercross House Hotel
4.2/537 Reviews
It was my first trip away after major illness, so I decided to maximise my enjoyment by making my journey as easy as I could. Flights to and from France were bookended by one night stays in the Uppercross House Hotel in Rathmines, and the Phoenix Park Hotel, chosen for its proximity to Heuston Station and the train home. Had I known way back in January what I do today, I’d have booked both nights at the Uppercross House Hotel, and used the money I saved on the room to pay for a taxi to the station. My experiences at the two hotels could not be more different. At the Uppercross House Hotel my welcome, my room, my breakfast and every encounter with the staff was excellent. The staff in particular were exceptional: caring, friendly and professional. The cost of my room with breakfast was over €30 less than the Phoenix Park Hotel, and both my requests for a top floor room and a room away from the road were realised. In contrast my welcome at the Phoenix Park Hotel made me feel like a criminal. I always greet staff with a big smile. In response, in stead of “Hello!” or “Good afternoon!” I received “I.D. Please.” Then I found out that my booking didn’t include breakfast, and that no cooked breakfast was available. I accept both hotels are in the city, and therefore noise was inevitable, but the Phoenix Park Hotel ignored both my requests, giving me a first floor room at the apex of a busy traffic junction. Both window latches were broken, so I went to reception to request a room change, and was moved to another first floor room that also had broken window latches. Then I was kept awake all night by banging and thumping above me (that’s why I prefer top floor rooms.) The bathroom had a blocked sink and cracked floor tiles. Next time I stay in Dublin I’ll be at the splendid little Uppercross House Hotel, enjoying an evening down the road at Slattery’s excellent pub.
