I stayed there a couple weeks ago. There were things I really liked about the hotel and a few constructive things I'd like to see them change. Positives 1) Fantastic Location - although it is not in the Temple Bar/Trinity College location, the Luas light rail is literally about 50 meters in front of the hotel. It is really easy...

I had to have a cocktail here after watching First Dates Ireland! We had a drink after the WWE show in the 3 Arena and it was really busy, with a very rowdy crowd in the bar. There was no one I recognised from tv and the bar staff were a bit overwhelmed by the demand but nevertheless my cocktail...

Clean, modern, functional design. Large rooms. All other hotel services are terrible. Front desk staff are almost all trainees who try hard but just aren't up to the job yet. Concierge is never around and when he is has no knowledge of even the most basic things......like restos or simple tourist stuff. Resto and bar in hotel have incredibly bad...

We stayed here for two nights last weekend, and enjoyed everything about the hotel. We had a fabulous room on the sixth floor, with a very large balcony. Breakfast was excellent. Some staff at reception had difficulty explaining about the car park underneath, but, we went down there and sorted the queries. Great location, an easy walk into town, or...

AWESOME hotel. Very modern, very welcoming, would definitely go back to stay again. Great staff all-round, the breakfast is superb and the bed is omg, so comfortable (especially after a 30 hour flight!).

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
