Just completed a 3 day stay at the Gresham Dublin. They are clearly improving the tired facilities and hence we got a good deal so can't really complain too much! However, would have paid more if the facilities were better. The staff were great and really welcoming in all areas. The room was really airy and clean. However, it was...

I really enjoyed my 3 nights stay at this hotel. The people were very friendly and ready to help you with any information. The room was quite big, with a really big double bed, leather coach, tv, coffee table and free WiFi. Everything was very clean, they came in every morning to change towels and clean the room and even...

We had one night in the Gresham Hotel on Good Friday. It was a lovely, clean room with a very comfortable bed. We didn't have breakfast included so can't comment on that but highly recommend for service and comfort. 20 mins on the bus from the airport and the bus stop is literally outside the front door of the hotel....

I stayed here for 3 nights in early April and found the property to be really good. The hotel is well kept, despite being dated, and all the amenities in the room are adequate and sufficient.

We enjoyed a 2 night break over Easter. The hotel has had work done and the lobby is now under refurbishment, but this didn't make any difference. Staff are very welcoming, breakfast was superb, drinks not overly priced in the bar (when compared to Temple Bar), and the location is superb. Really nice bedroom, plenty of space and big bathroom....
