More Room Types

"A solid city-centre option at a good price" (Fodor's), The Gresham Hotel's central location is the biggest draw; right on wide O'Connell Street and near the shops on Henry Street. Also nearby are the tiny Gate Theatre and the Hugh Lane Gallery of contemporary art (admission is free). The hotel's proximity to Temple Bar (10 minutes' walk across the River Liffey) means it's great for nightlife as well.

Other sights, including Trinity College, Dublin Castle and Grafton Street, are no more than 20 minutes away on foot. Over on Abbey Street you'll find the LUAS tram stop, for access to Kilmainham Gaol and the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

The hotel offers three dining options, from the casual Toddy's Bar, which shows live sports on plasma screens, to the sophisticated Writer's Bar, where a traditional afternoon tea is served between 2 and 6pm. A large buffet breakfast is available in the ground-floor Gallery Restaurant. There's a local health club a 5-minute walk away, with swimming pool, steam room, Jacuzzi and sauna (charges apply).

Contemporary rooms are comfortable and newly renovated. The Lavery Rooms are worth the upgrade, with bigger beds and mini fridges that can be stocked (on request). Rooms to the front offer more interesting views but busy O'Connell Street can be noisy. If you prefer a quieter night, opt for a room at the rear. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.
