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.

Me and my girlfriend were in Dublin from 3rd to 7th March. We slept in double room with breakfast included from 8 am to 11 am. All the receptionists were so kind to us. They welcomed us gently and friendly. They gave us all the informations we needed. The breakfast was varied (Irish food) as dinner (we booked a dinner twice, during the journey). The waiters were fast with the courses, kind and always smiley. They always asked us if everything was OK. The atmosphere of the restaurant/pub was welcoming, elegant. The room was always well cleaned. There was a bottle of water for us and a coffee or tea machine. An important information: Ireland is a plastic free country, so you can't find plastic cutlery as little spoons or plastic glasses (what a piece of luck! Good for the environment). The bathroom was small, but you can have a shower comfortably. There was an hairdryer you can use next to the bed, in front of the mirror. You can enter into the room with a pass card and there is a lift and a beautiful sight on Leeson Street Lower from the 3rd floor. There wasn't a wardrobe in our room. I don't know if you could like it, but it was easier for us, because our bagages were just prepared and we had much more time to visit the city! We can only appreciate host's kindness. Dublin and House will have a place in our hearts. Thank you guys. God bless you, and Ireland people. Donato and Mariangela.

What an amazing place; the interior is fantastic, the food tastes great (not a whole lot to choose from but everything in the menu is really good), a lot of waiters which makes you never have to wait a long time for your food/drinks. And what a great music, the DJ mixes all the right songs to an amazing playlist. We had a great night!!!

Booked a table for Sunday afternoon here and we enjoyed it a lot. Very relaxing atmosphere, lovely music and really nice and friendly staff. We ordered a breakfast each and the only complaint we would have is the food was a little cold, I’m just not sure it was freshly cooked or if it was microwaved. In saying that it was very tasty (2 sausages would be nice)! I had bottomless Prosecco for the afternoon and this was a lovely treat, hadn’t tried it before so can’t wait to return for it again. Hope to go back soon again.

I reserved a table for two online as a Christmas treat for my husband. On arrival we were shown to the outside patio part which had one other small patio table and was pretty cold!! This was not indicated on my booking nor was I prepared to sit outside so we were given a table inside as it wasn't too busy. The food was quite cold and came out very quickly but it was tasty. Seats were too low to eat comfortably at the tables and overall, quite expensive for a disappointing evening. I must be honest and say not a good experience and I couldn't recommend it at all. As our Christmas work lunch was booked for the 19th, I expressly requested that the manager ensure we would be accommodated inside before I left. I was assured that we would be placed by the tall tables opposite the bar and would definitely be in the main building. Unfortunately, when we arrived on the 19th we were placed in a pod like structure outside beyond where they tried to place us on the night of my first visit This was unacceptable as apart from the fact that our seats had been given to another party, it was freezing cold for both people at the entrance seats, of which I was one but for everyone else the heaters were burning their heads. I asked for a blow heater as I was cold and wet but was told they had none. A half hour later, one arrived but faced out into a larger seated area. The toilets were filthy. And getting to them required crossing an open area through the rain. As a final insult we were moved twice to smaller tables. I have emailed the House twice with my complaints but have yet to even receive any acknowledgement My advice. Avoid at all costs.

Speakers on high everywhere playing loud noisy music, a speaker was located directly over our table. The food came to the table luke warm and served on cold plates, I ordered the fillet medium, it arrived rare and bloody. Presentation wise the food looked as if it was shoved onto the plates at high speed, the fries were so over cooked that they were actually empty vacuums of carbon, the potato which should have been inside them had long gone. This venue is not for those with discerning taste and represents poor value for dollars. A fine dinning experience this was not.

We booked a table in the garden for the birthday 10 days before it. We got a call from the restaurant 1 hour before the booking that they have wedding, so we are moved to inside. We came with the friends from USA and Japan (6 people), and we wanted to show them one of the best places in Dublin. When we were discussing menu and asked about the available options for lactose intolerant people, the waitress told that this is not their problems that food on menu does not fit them. They just selected some food that was good for them, but the communication was unpleasant. The food was good. The waitress was making us feeling unwelcome and uncomfortable. She did not remember who ordered which food, and was making bad jokes. At the end she charged us 204 eur and then told that she will add service charge 25.50 because there were less then 8 people, so created a new check 229.50 eur overall. It was never mentioned during the order, so we are not sure if that's true. We were in House Dublin restaurant before. Food was good, but we never experienced such service. Unfortunately, not recommended anymore.

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.

Writing this here as I still have not got a reply to my email. I am just mailing in regards to a hen party I attended last night. There were 19 of us dining and the food and drink was great but the waitress serving us really ruined our experience. We were cold and asked for the heater to be turned on a few times and she rolled her eyes. Asking for drinks etc seemed to be too much of an inconvenience for her everyone at the table felt very uncomfortable. When it came to the time to leave she was very rude. As there were 19 of us so we had to take a few minutes to organise payment between us. She kept saying we have to go and sort out payment somewhere else. We payed over €1700 for our bill including service charge. We felt the service charge was not worth it as her service was appalling. We were ushered downstairs to the night club were there was live music followed by a DJ. The DJ was terrible he was playing dated music and wouldn't play any recent music. It was like something from a nineties wedding. I had heard so much about house and was looking forward to it but unfortunately I won't have good memories of it.

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.

Our wedding 25.07.2023 We just got married in Dublin City Hall and had our intimate reception in House Dublin 2 and I can’t recommend it enough. We wanted something with a laid back vibe, but also trendy with great food and drinks selection, House ticked every single box. Great location, beautiful inside area, outside garden area and beautiful architecture, It was my dream venue and I’m in love with it. Margeret looked after us from start to finish, she is amazing and was so helpful the entire way through. She even worked with my Florist to get our tablescape looking perfect, she really went above and beyond to make everything so easy for our wedding day. The dinner was incredible, all our guests are still raving about the food. The wait staff and evening manager were extremely professional and friendly, they made sure the wine glasses were never empty and checked in with all our guests to ensure everyone was happy. The ambience is just remarkable, they really have it down to a tee! The garden is incredible by day but at night it is just out of this world, the glow of the fairy lights and candles is so romantic and beautiful. I'm being told by my guests that our wedding is the best they have ever been too. I will be recommending House to everybody, if you are considering a city centre wedding don't look anywhere else. House truly has it all. On a personal note, Mags thank you so so so much, we are still on cloud nine you truly made our day everything it could be and more. You are so thoughtful and kind and we will never forget how you treated us. You are a credit to House.

I hosted a surprise baby shower here for around 20 people. The setting was gorgeous as we were sat at a long table towards the back in the conservatory. The food was fantastic, catering for both vegan and coeliac guests. The balloons, flowers and personalized menus were all wonderful touches. Would definitely recommend to anyone planning on hosting a baby shower in the future. Huge kudos to the staff especially who went above and beyond to ensure all the guests were happy.

We went here for dinner on our first evening in Dublin. Very little choice and most things seemed to be fried, I ordered the scallops and what I got can only be described as steamed mush and definitely were not fresh even though I asked and was told they were fresh. We called over the manager who was apologetic and allowed us to leave without paying. I could see the chef working and he wasn’t even wearing whites or an apron. There was also a large party in and I think all his attention was on this group. Not good at all and way too loud. More a place for young hip people who don’t care what they eat as long as they have lots of alcohol and don’t mind shouting inane conversations. Reminded me more of a nightclub that serves substandard food instead of a restaurant that plays music.

The ambiance is nice, the decor is better, the food was lovely and the staff was really charming. I took my team for dinner and a lot of cocktails here. We enjoyed a pleasant summer's dinner out back, the staff was very attentive and informative and the food was on point. It's a great spot for business meals, romantic meals, or even celebrations. Their bar is stocked but the only downside was the fact they were missing the specific starter, main, and dessert that I wanted. With that said, the back choices did not disappoint.

Ate here with friends in the outside area. It is a lovely venue. It was very busy and there were a lot of hen parties. The overhead heaters were on throughout and it was too hot for my friends. I ordered the burrata starter which was quite tasty. There was a stone from a fruit (perhaps a plum or something, I’m not sure) in with the chickpea salad. When I brought it to the attention of the waitress, she looked at me blankly and that was the end of it, there wasn’t so much as an apology. I ordered the sirloin steak with pepper sauce of mains and it was delicious and the chocolate fondant for dessert was really good. We had booked a table for drinks afterward and were brought to a seedy nightclub type space rather than the bar which was disappointing. The table service was good there. Overall the food is good but was underwhelmed overall.

Dear Ryano26clon Many thanks for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. I am delighted to see that you enjoyed our venue and the food. My apologies for anything that you may have found in your salad. I can assure you we operate to the highest food safety standards here at House, so I am disappointed your experience was hampered by this. My apologies you did not enjoy our Piano Bar, Oscar and Percy's, afterwards. It is newly renovated and is proving to be popular with our guests, but I appreciate everyone has different tastes. I do hope to see you back in with us in the future. Kind Regards Andrew Fisher General Manager

Met here for a lunch with friends on a Saturday afternoon. Menu was a brunch menu and very limited, we had booked lunch for 230, waited 15/20 minutes to be served a drink had to go to the bar to order. Waiter then informed us kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. Our table was out back and was very cold no heat on. We had 3 burgers and one Caesar salad with chicken Kiev, 2 bottles of wine. Burgers were average at best with a small amount of chips on the side, Caesar was just ok. Service was slow and not particularly friendly. We finished food and left. Approx €150. Won't be rushing back. Decor is grubby and dated in daylight
