Great location,lovely staff and stylish hotel and good value for money.One has to park their car in a car park on a side street with access to hotel from there because its in the city centre.One is only a short distance from a lot of major stores and the Luas tram line.

Everyone received a slightly different room - all were very good. Large Bedrooms and Large Bathrooms, both with real windows that you could open for a change! Very clean. OK it may be an 'older' property, but that delivers character and style sadly missing in the more modern Hotels. The full Irish breakfast was very good every day with plenty...

We really enjoyed this hotel, it was only a 7 euro ride from the airport by bus and it stops right in front of the hotel. The location is also fairly close to the Port, as we were taking an early morning ferry to Holyhead so it was nice it didn't take long to get there. Had dinner in Duffy's...

We booked the Gresham on suggestion of a friend. It was a bit pricey for us (Euros 225 average per night) but we found the accommodations to be excellent and the location very good. Food in the restaurant is very good and priced fairly. One rather big disapointment however, was the very loud disruption in back of the hotel at...

Spent one night on a business trip to Dublin. The hotel is the most central you could imagine. Style is calssic. Check out was very smooth.

Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of service at the Gresham. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Food beautiful, we had the Sunday lunch on a rainy afternoon in a beautifully decorated restaurant/bar, and rooms have a very modern decor. We will definitely be back.

The Hotel is served conveniently by the Airport Coach, which stops right outside the door. Check in was a seamless, with a warm welcome from the desk staff. Our room was well sized and spotless, and very good value for money. The view from the window wasn't great, but we weren't in often enough to look out of it! All...
