Upper O'Connell Street is ideally placed to access many of the attractions that Dublin has to offer and this hotel afforded comfort and excellent service at a decent price. Despite the early Spring visit we enjoyed bright weather, good food, a great and welcome cultural mix that was a match for many European cities, fine live music and great hospitality....

We had a large room with a separate bathroom, which had plenty of big towels. Buffet breakfast was delicious. There was a large range of food. The staff were professional and friendly. We would stay here again.

Very comfortable hotel, with attentive (but not too attentive) staff, and a terrific breakfast buffet (full Irish and then some). We also used their ballroom for an event and it was quite adequate and nice. Both Toddy's and the Writer's Room were good options for cocktails. And it's right in the heart of Dublin. I'd definitely stay there again.

The Gresham is a hotel rebuilt in the mid 20's and retains much of the charm of that period - kept in very good condition, it retains many of the original design features. It is in a fantastic central location - book the Aircoach in advance from the airport on line and it drops you outside the door ! As...

Loved this hotel so much. Was in Dublin for my first time ever, for St Patrick's Day. The parade path was right in front of the hotel! Literally walked out the door, and there was the parade. Great views. The hotel is also on Upper O Connell street which is the best street in Dublin. Everywhere was within walking distance...

Stayed at the Gresham hotel in Dublin for st pats weekend. The rooms are very inadequate and poor. No fridge, old and require a huge update. Then on Monday morning at 8:20 am the hotel decide to carry out construction work on the room next door. What can only be described as horrific drilling noise and men shouting to one...

We spent two nights at the Gresham. The location is fabulous, right on O'Connell St.Upper. Majestic, old style hotel. Comfortable rooms. Breakfast was excellent. The Hop-On buses all stop right around the hotel, so you have access to the entire city. Henry-Mary St shopping is just a couple of blocks away. And best of all, Murray's Bar is one block...

A large friendly city center hotel with many features harking back to when it was the top hotel in Dublin. Walking distance to most city center attractions. Rooms are quiet and comfortable and the restaurant good , the service quick and efficient. Will certainly be happy to stay again ,a worthy opponent to the more expensive nearby 5 star hotels....

A short walk from train station and ideal location for shops and restaurants. Check in slow and no great welcome. No offer of help with bags or cases( lady with me is 75 years). Room was small and basic, asked to be moved and was put next to building work at the furthest point from elevators. It was so noisy...
