Well maintained hotel. Has several restaurant/pubs attached. Breakfast is exceptional. Staff is very helpful. Centrally located, but quite a bit of noise on the street at 3 am due to pubs closing nearby. Hot water system does not keep up with the demand in the morning. Room is exceptionally hot - windows open with heat off in January. I expect...

Living in Dublin, I have rarely visited The Gresham Hotel. However, after a day of shopping we decided to pop in for some food and drinks and we weren't disappointed. There are so many staff readily available to take orders and welcome you to the restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. Will definitely be back!

The Hotel Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin is a spacious and elegantly decorated hotel, with quiet and comfortable rooms. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Dublin, with easy access to numerous tourist attractions within walking distance. The restaurant in the hotel served a “Full Irish Breakfast” and it was quite good, but it may be a...

Been a while since we stayed here. Unless you know how it's a bit of a nightmare to get to and no parking out front to drop off. Always buses and taxis there. The reception area has been renovated to a clean but cold atmosphere and the once packed Toddy's bar is almost empty. We booked a Lavery double and...

Hotel is ideally placed in the centre of Dublin meaning that all the main attractions are within a reasonable walking distance. We didn't bother with breakfast in the hotel which was quite expensive, instead utilising the many independent cafes available locally. We also booked the Aircoach transfer from the airport which stops and collects immediately outside of the hotel.

Staff very friendly. Liked that we could check in online ahead and give them our ETA. Because of this, our room was available as soon as we arrived, which was 3 hours before normal check in at 15:00. The hotel is right at the airport bus stop so no having to drag luggage up/down streets. Well located for restaurants, coffee...
