We booked 2 rooms for a family visit to a concert in the 3 Arena. The Arena is steps across from the hotel. The Luas stops directly at the hotel to take you to the city center or else it is a comfortable walk.We parked in the nearby car park which has a lift directly into the hotel and has...

Large very clean hotel with modern rooms. The staff are friendly, polite, professional and above all helpful. The hotel is located right beside the 3 arena and is the perfect location if attending a gig there. I love the way the hotel caters for those attending gigs playing suitable music when you use the conveniences and after the gig in...

Our check-in was handled by the very friendly and polite Magdalena, the room was modern and stylish yet still warm and inviting. The meal (we had booked the package deal) was delicious with efficient and polite staff. It was our first visit to the Gibson and it certainly won't be our last. Oh and the express check out is a...

What another exceptional stay in the Gibson! Without doubt the best hotel in Dublin. Perfect location for a city break, away from the hustle of the city yet only 5 minutes to the heart of it all via the luas. Stayed here for my partner's birthday and we were made feel like royalty.

We spent ten days at the Gibson hotel. Although the reviews we had read about the hotel were great, we had the impression, upon arrival, that is was far from the city center. This was just an impression! We like to walk, and the Gibson hotel is just a 20 minute walk from the city center. If you do not...

The staff at the hotel are literally the only arrogant people I met in my Dublin trip. Specially on the restaurant, it felt like staff couldn't be bothered. Incredibly they wouldn't play music at the bar at 22:30 for a group of 20 people... The hotel itself: Really comfortable rooms, nice views and very clean.

Visited here for pre show drinks. The seating area was very small for the big crowd that called in. Not much choice of wines, but there was plenty of other choices instead, beers ciders etc. Pricey too, but we expect that in Dublin all in all, a nice place to relax before a show after a hectic day round town

Can't rate this hotel enough, modern rooms very clean. Great location as it's just across the road from the 3 arena. Breakfast was one of the best I've seen. Lovely girl in reservations helped me arrange a birthday plate for my boyfriend to be delivered to the room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
