Map & Directions

The hotel is 15 minutes by taxi from Dublin Airport. There is a fast Aircoach bus service into Dublin (get off at O'Connell Street for the hotel), but the cheapest option is the number 16 Dublin Bus, which also stops on O'Connell Street. You might want to ask for directions to the local bus terminal at the airport -- it can be hard to find. There is secure parking at the hotel for those arriving by car (charges apply).

"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.

Other Comments: The location was iffy... The bathroom was dirty...brown liquid under the sink. The hotel said breakfast was not included as well as the 2 welcome drinks...The available upgrade was at a cost of 60 euros. and the hotel had lots of empty rooms for the night of our stay.The front desk had no knowledge of Travelzoo. It is a 2 star hotel. I will not use Travelzoo for hotels again! I showed them

Enjoyed Most: We really enjoyed the ease of check-in with The Gresham Hotel's online check-in option. We arrived late and this saved precious minutes.
Other Comments: It was somewhat disappointing that the Staff did not really know what was included in our deal through Travelzoo. Using there online check-in, there was no mention of an upgrade in our note, no mention of welcome drinks (which we would have liked), and it wasn't until I pressed the point with a staff member that they confirmed that the breakfast was included. There was also no offer of late check-out and, when asked, they made it seem that they were doing us a favor rather than it be included. It was fairly obvious that the staff was not aware of any deal worked out through Travelzoo.

Enjoyed Most: I liked leaving it to return home.
Other Comments: The Customer Service was appalling. No hot water. Room key not working. Excuse after excuse after excuse. Dreadful experience and on my birthday. Complained again and again during the stay. Complained again upon return home. The poor Customer Care (or lack thereof...) goes all the way to the top!
