The Gibson Hotel is east of the central tourist area, in a quiet neighborhood that can seem somewhat isolated at night, but it's just a 10-minute tram ride to the central area, and it can be good to be so close to downtown but to have it be quiet and almost secluded (if a bit industrial in terms of the...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night in August 2015. We found the room spacious and well decorated. Unfortunately the hotel was not at the centre of the city but one can take a tram just in front of the hotel to downtown. Breakfast served had a lot of variety. There's free WiFi throughout the hotel....

Stayed here as attending a concert in the arena next door. Excellent location. Perfect! Room was smallish but nice. Lovely bathroom. Excellent friendly staff. Breakfast was average. Put at a table with two strangers! Bacon sausages etc barely cooked as they obviously had so many to cook to keep up with demand as it was sooooo busy. Toast didn't arrive...

I'm writing this as it comes to the last day of my stay here in the Gibson. The trip has been made phenomenally better because of this hotel. Extremely friendly staff basically planned our intinery for us based on what we told them we liked! Five stars all the way.

I'm always there for my business trips to Dublin, it's easy and convenient, 15-20 to go to the airport, but still only 10 mins to city center with the tram. Very modern design, cool architecture. And very good variety for breakfast

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
