Spending four nights at the Gresham was an opportunity to enjoy Dublin at a slower than usual pace.I tried out the afternoon tea service on Friday afternoon with a friend from Dublin. We started out about five thirty and kept talking until eight! The sandwiches and sweets were very generous,linen napkins and cosy sofa seating just off the lobby. Fresh pot of hot water for the tea,all for eighteen euro.Nice way to relax. As usual Toddy's Bar was thriving,good choice of full meals and lighter fare and beverages. Also a mix of people,some tourists but locals,too.
Again,Julie Maher was running the breakfast service efficiently,with a welcoming manner that starts the day off smoothly. My room was large,in the Lavery Wing. Because of the Italy vs Ireland rugby match the cost of Saturday night was about twice what the other three cost--I remarked at checkout that I had paid for five nights staying four. This may put some people off,rather like having to pay double for a dinner entre if all the tables are booked and too many other people want to eat the same thing! The Gresham location is so good that a lot gets forgiven, and the staff and rooms seal the deal.
