Barry's Hotel
Ranked #135 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed 28 November 2011

The hotel staff were really accomodating and extremely friendly (But then again most people we met in Dublin were) The rooms were quite small and also quite old although it was as clean as it could be. Overall it was ok, If you don't have a huge budget and you don't intend on staying at the hotel for extended periods this is your place. if you want luxury then you might want to look elsewhere.

If you have to pay more, please do yourself a favour and go elsewhere. Room was musty, telly didn't work. Bathrooms in breakfast area hadn't been cleaned after nite club on the previous night and were nothing short of horrific. Grafitti containing foul language on toilet door. I stayed there the weekend of the marathon and when I passed foreigners on the stairs in the morning I was actually embarrased that our lovely country could offer up such a hole for them to have to stay in. I'm usually not one to complain but this was disgraceful.

We were placed at Barry's hotel on 25 October 2011 as the hotel we were meant to stay at was fully booked. We were meant to stay for three nights but did not even stay for one!!! Upon arriving we were told there was come construction work going on and also that there was no lift. Lots of stairs!! If there was not a strong smell of paint from the construction then the place was smelling of urine. Our room was shabby and dirty with huge cracks in the wall and a door that didnt lock properly.

The worst part of this hotel (and the reason we chose to leave after only a few hours) is that part of the hotel is actually a lap dancing club!!! We were unclear oif this was the case or whether it was a nightclub but hotel staff confimed in fact it was a lap dabcing club. There were loads of men hanging around the hotel at night and you were unable to leave the hotel without being "propositioned" by them.

Very unsafe place for two females to stay!!!!!

The Hotel staff, the receptionist and Bar Manager really made our stay so welcome. They were extremely friendly and put themselves out to make our stay very comfortable. The room was clean and tidy and the breakfast was very good. The price of the hotel and breakfast was very very good
