Stayed here for 1 night for a concert, short walk to the Abbey street Luas stop. Parked in the hotel carpark. Dealt with the same reception lady who was helpful and professional. Extra staff around reception area help to keep an eye on your bags which is nice. Our room was 266 on the 2nd floor with no real view...

We stayed here for 4 days recently and have to say very happy with our choice. The hotel is literally 2 stops away on the air coach which was very affordable straight from the airport. Checked in easily, room was lovely even if the bed was slightly on the small side. Our room was roadside but the noise really isn't...

The Gresham is ideally placed for getting around all of Dublin. The bus from the airport stops right outside the hotel and picks up going back, on the other side of the road. (If you fly Ryan Air, buy the bus ticket on board as it saves you 2 euros). The hotel is pleasant, well appointed and staff are extremely...

Stayed in the Gresham Hotel in late March. Room fine, bathroom a bit dated but adequate. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good and the service prompt and friendly. All was well until we returned to our room, when we heard loud talking and laughing coming from the next room. This continued nonstop and at midnight...

I highly recommend this hotel. It is old and charming although the rooms are updated and modern. The breakfasts were delicious and I enjoyed sitting in the pub/restaurant for an afternoon drink. The front desk is exceptionally polite and welcoming . Safe convenient location also.

Everything we needed was right there. The Gresham is beautiful and such a comfortable room. We slept so well in the heart of a lively city. The breakfast was delicious and the staff attentive. Will definitely stay again.

I am in Dublin a few times a year and usually go to the Gresham for lunch. The food is very nice but , for me, the main reason I keep returning is the staff. They are friendly and offer great service. They make each visit a total pleasure.

The gresham is situated in the immediate neighborhood of buses, tram or railway station... The hotel has nice rooms, great breakfast.. The staff is friendly only in the bar toddy's were we treated as invisable people.. The writer's room made up for that!!
