About
House Dublin occupies two Georgian Townhouses on Leeson Street, between The Grand Canal and St Stephen’s Green. House has a feeling of relaxed glamour, luxury and ease throughout. We love you to feel at home and choose the space you’d like for the time you need it – log fires burning daily in the Front Parlour, our Salon Bar and Conservatory, The Terrace by the pot bellied stove, down to the Garden with its olive and citrus trees. The GlassHouse, Wine Room, Library and Redroom all offer further areas in which to meet, eat and drink. Open from early morning to late at night.

We went and had a lovely meal. The atmosphere is really energetic and friendly. Really enjoyed the prawn tempura with crab claws. I would recommend thanks for a lovely meal. Special thanks to Charly for arranging the reservation.

Booked for a couple overnight break, room was nice and clean, as i expected before the stay it was on the noisy side at night as the bar is below and it was Saturday night, but that was ok. Breakfast was delicious & all staff...were very nice & accommodating.More

I asked for a quiet room and the lady at reception assured me I would be in “one of the quietest rooms we have.” However, for the four nights I spent here, there were serious noise issues. There appears to be little or no isolation...or soundproofing between the rooms, so that if someone snores loudly (as my neighbour did, for three of the four nights) you can hear it clearly…all night. My request to move to another room for my second and subsequent nights was very badly handled by a night manager (who told me she was actually working in the bar, not the reception). When I raised the issue of noise she quickly changed the subject to ask whether I had had a nice day. She seemed completely uninterested in engaging with my complaint. When I asked her whether my snoring neighbour was staying for (m)any more nights, she quickly looked at her computer screen and said “no.” Yet when she said it, she sounded uncertain. So I asked her which room number she was referring to and she replied, again with obvious uncertainty, “both of them”. It was not true. After a second sleep-deprived night, not sleeping till after 2am with the noise, I spoke with the Accommodation Manager. When I asked her whether I could cancel the remaining nights, she asked me whether I wanted to do so without a refund! I insisted that it would be on the basis of being refunded for the remaining two nights. She asked me to come back in an hour to speak with the manager. I explained that I was busy, gave her my mobile number and asked her to give it to the manager and to ask him to call me to discuss the issue. She assured me she would do so. I never heard from him. It was the third night, and again I did not sleep till the early hours (2am). On my last night there was noise from the nightclub downstairs that continued till very late. Much of the nightclub is located in a conservatory-type structure in the back of the building that is partly open. I could hear every word of the music till 2.30am, and crowd noise until even later. When I was checking out I asked the Accommodation Manager whether she had asked the hotel manager to contact me. “I asked one of the staff to contact him,” she claimed. There were other issues, too. The room itself, in the attic, was small and did not have much natural light. The pressure in the shower was weak. The walls were scuffed and the skirting boards chipped. There were no sofas or wardrobe. Every day the electronic room key didn’t work so I had to go down to reception to have it validated again - and walk back up several flights of stairs because the elevator was out of action for 3 days. I paid €439 for all of the above. You'll forgive me, I hope, if I feel I've been ripped off.More

Fantastic experience, pre Ire V Scot match. Beautiful venue, was in a Devine booth near bar in the terrace. Service from beginning to end was impeccable. It was friendly, engaging and very prompt. Our hosts name was John(I think) He was a real star, one...of the best that we have encountered. Food/cocktails were top class. Will 100% go here for similar events. Bravo.More

We booked in for dinner pre-gig because of the location. Lovely decor but unfortunately that’s where the positives end. Severely understaffed which most hospitality venues are currently but just made the experience unenjoyable entirely.

The House has a very quirky warm decor that instantly makes you feel like you want to relax and enjoy your visit. No two areas are decorated the same. Our hostess was very welcoming and seated us in the lower bar area near the kitchen....Despite being so close to the noise and activity of the kitchen area we didn’t mind as we were only having a quick lunch. The menu is very appealing with plenty of choice. We chose the goats cheese starter and the vegetarian tacos. The restaurant had a pretty busy lunch service but nobody appeared to be waiting very long. Will definitely go back for an evening meal in the near future.More

Such a beautiful place, in every sense of the word. We’ve been loads at this stage but one visit in particular, I will never forget. I was heavily pregnant and when I arrived at House I felt terribly weak and had major hunger lows. They...weren’t serving food when we got there so I pleaded with the staff for anything edible. Dry toast or anything would have helped. After a few rejections, the most beautiful, friendly and professional girl sorted me out with none other than a staff dinner, and it was delicious! Chicken, chips and veg! Without making a big deal of it, she went above and beyond to look after her customers. I’m raging I didn’t get her name. She was Irish, small and slim and utterly fabulous. She is the reason we have been back but unfortunately we haven’t seen her since. House is our new favourite spot by far 👌🏼More

I wouldn't bet on it. Better to reserve a table or if not be prepared to wait. People tend to keep the tables though to have drinks afterwards.
