Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dropped into McGettigan's Townhouse with my family for breakfast / brunch last Sunday - 7 of us in total. Very happy with our visit. All the staff were very friendly and the food was really good. As for value, we guessed how much it would cost before the bill arrived. All of us were wrong as the bill was cheaper than any of us had guessed - not something that happens very often in Dublin. We did the same the week previous in another bar/restaurant and paid more than double what we paid here and the food was not as good. One really nice touch, was the water we asked for coming down in chilled Teeling whiskey bottles and at no charge. Looking forward to getting back here.

Booked this hotel as it had good reviews. Unfortunately, this was not our experience. On arrival, the place was closed and we had to wander around till we spied someone behind the bar and had to knock on the window. The room was ok but lacked useable furniture. Two chairs built for leprechauns and a small table that only accommodated two small cups and saucers. The kettle and tea/coffee on a narrow shelf. The bed was comfortable enough but small. We left before breakfast the following morning on a (Fabulous day trip to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway with Wild Rover tours). When we arrived back, our room had not been serviced, bed not made, towels not changed and tea/coffee not replenished. We even went out and bought a jar of coffee). Apparently we were supposed to hang the ‘please service our room’ notice on the door. It would have been useful to have been told this on arrival. In fact there was no ‘Hotel Information’ in our room. Nevertheless, having spoken to the manager (Silvia), we left to wander around Dublin the following morning after a very nice full Irish breakfast, confident our room would be refreshed on our return. How disappointing. The cups were still there from the morning (bearing in mind we had already had to wash them ourselves the previous evening), the bed still unmade, so the same sheets on the bed for all three nights. No manager on the premises. The following morning we spoke to the manager who was singularly not interested. Apparently, servicing the room only entails changing the towels! This in no way resembles a 4 star establishment. We paid over €100 per night for what I would classify as a 1 star hotel. As an aside, yes, the hotel is within walking distance of the City Centre and Temple Bar BUT it is very close to two hostels and a Mission with overt drug taking on the street and in nearby doorways. It is not somewhere I would feel safe walking at night.

Very good boutique hotel, friendly attentive staff, great breakfast. It would have been a five star review but for a couple of fixes; lovely complimentary McGettigans stout but no bottle opener, the bar was closed because lack of bar staff, hopefully next time we visit it’ll be different because we wouldn’t hesitate to stay again and give it a second chance. Sylvia the contact/ receptionist was superb and our welcome from Paul, the GM was lovely. And without my asking I got my wish of staying in the room called Brian

Communication prior to arrival to arrange room access was very helpful although not having a reception felt a little odd at first. Good location, right next to tram stop & airport bus stop just around the corner but most attractions in walking distance. Stayed in ‘Annie’, compact but comfortable with Tea, coffee, water & complimentary bottle of Guinness available. Paul & his staff were very friendly, welcoming and cooked a fantastic breakfast. Our only negatives were shower water didn’t drain & digital ‘room key’ disappeared from app so we were stranded outside briefly as pub was shut but Paul soon arrived to rescue us. Would definitely stay again.

We loved our weekend at McGettigans! The room was cosy, clean, and comfortable with a brilliant bed & a lovely shower. Every member of staff was happy and friendly to talk and help. Breakfast on our first day was a delicious continental spread, and the next we had a delicious full irish. We even ate there for dinner one night and had great burgers! Hands down, a brilliant place to stay - everything was a 20/25 minute walk away at max, plus the tram was right outside.

Visited Dublin from Guam and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! The folks were all so nice and welcoming! Breakfast was delicious, the company superb! Located within walking distance of tourist attractions, restaurants and bars. We felt like family by the time we left! Highly recommend McGettigans to all!

Before we went for a walk we came upon McGettigans by pure chance. Safe, no queues and the best poached eggs and sourdough toast I’ve had for a long time. Will definitely go back and recommend it to anyone.

We spent the first two nights of a two-week trip at McGettigans Townhouse, and had our first Guinness in McGettigan's pub. An historic building and classic pub - no doubt we'd made it to Ireland! Location was great - we walked to everything we wanted to see. The room was charming and comfortable. There may have been street noise, but we always travel with our Lectrofan micro white noise machine, so never heard it. Bed was comfortable - slept 12 hours our first night there (unheard of) so done with jet lag in a hurry. Breakfast was generous and delicious. The shower was to die for, perfect after a long day of travel or sight seeing. Joe and Paul were great - thanks guys! It was our favorite pub on the trip, so we went back to have our last pint there as well. We highly recommend a stay at McGettigans next time you're in Dublin.

So, we arrived at 8am, was able to drop our bags off and get a pint which was more than welcome. All the staff are amazing and welcoming, food is amazing, and the locals are the best. Robbie and the mcgettigans staff are one in a million! Thankyou

If you’re looking for a friendly, clean and close to town accommodation then this is your place. We arrived late due to miscommunication as we’ve been attending wedding at a different location. They were able to arrange for us to get to our room at 11pm. Room is lovely and clean, bathroom is clean, lovely and stylish. Yes, it’s cosy however, for a pub hotel, this is a very very good standard. Breakfast is downstairs at the pub and you’re served good healthy home made meal. All the 3 gentlemen at the pub are lovely, social and friendly. I’ll highly recommend this place if you’re looking for somewhere in town to put your head down for 2 - 4 nights. We’ll be back.
