I am in Dublin a few times a year and usually go to the Gresham for lunch. The food is very nice but , for me, the main reason I keep returning is the staff. They are friendly and offer great service. They make each visit a total pleasure.

The gresham is situated in the immediate neighborhood of buses, tram or railway station... The hotel has nice rooms, great breakfast.. The staff is friendly only in the bar toddy's were we treated as invisable people.. The writer's room made up for that!!

Hotel was a treasure. In centre of the city on a large boulevard, close to Temple Bar, Shopping Centre and Attractions. Staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the Bar for a night cap each evening, but can not comment on the restaurants as we ate out as we discovered the city. The rooms were large and bathrooms were lovely with...

My partner and I stayed at the Gresham hotel for one night. It is a classic old hotel in Dublin. If you are coming from the airport get the aircoach and it will drop you right outside the door of the Gresham. We arrived early and our room was ready so the staff let us check in. I was super...

I stayed here recently with my parents. We had rooms overlooking O'Connell Street which was great. The view from the back rooms not so nice. Breakfast was amazing, lots to choose from and very fresh. I loved the decor of the restaurant which had a modern theme with interesting art on the walls. A unexpected nice surprise. The staff were...

Managed to stay here for a great rate having booked online a few weeks previous. Arrived too early to check in but could leave our luggage in the hotel while we went out for breakfast. The staff behind the desk were very friendly as was the doorman. Had mentioned that it was our anniversary and to our surprise there was...

Or stay at the Gresham was very pleasurable. The location on O'Connell street was ideal for the sightseeing tours and airport bus service. The bar are was comfortable and served a wide range of drinks including delicious cocktails. The only issue I had was the beds! They were a little firm for my liking. Breakfast included was 'Irish standard' i.e....
