This hotel is in an excellent position for guests wanting to explore Dublin. Buses and coach trips to various locations depart from just outside the hotel. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. There is a bar serving an extensive menu until 10pm and a lounge to relax in with food and drink available. We would certainly recommend...

We stayed from the 30th of April to the 3rd of May and overall our stay was just alright. The hotel was clean and tidy but the directions to the rooms once on the floor are a bit unclear. We got to the room and it was freezing, the thermostat didn't work so I had to use the heater which...

Early check-in without any trouble. Hotel service is attentive in reception and room service, particularly a young restaurant trainee Kyle. We ordered vegetarian breakfast by phone, and he did it quickly at peak period and reminded us plates extremely hot!! Very considerate and professional. Food is fab. Absolutely choose Gresham again next time.

Stayed for one night at the Gresham for my boyfriends birthday, I did tell the hotel and after seeing some other reviews was hopeful they may give us a little extra in the room but we didn't get anything which is disappointing.
