We stayed in this hotel when we were in town for the Georgia Tech Football Game. This was a very convenient location - we could walk to all the major attractions in Dublin and it was also convenient to a shopping Promenade. The room was spacious, though it was a bit dated. Similarly, the room overheated despite cool temperatures outside.... More

Arrive on the AirCoach service from the airport and you will be dropped right outside the front entrance to the hotel (ramp and stepped access). Check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room in the Lavery Wing was at the rear of the hotel, overlooking a functional internal court, so quieter than those overlooking O'Connell Street (where in November 2016 there... More

Fab fab fab! What a great hotel, friendly staff and lovely rooms! Ideal location, couldn't of picked anywhere better to stay! My only criticism Is the lighting in the room is a IT dark by the dressing table which is hard when doing your hair, but this doesn't put me off in the slightest. I will return to this excellent...

This hotel is in a prime location and is generally a pretty comfortable stay. It was a ten-minute walk from the railroad station and the airport bus and taxi stands were steps away. The staff was professional if appearing a little harried. I appreciated getting an early check-in. Room was very comfortable; my main irritation was with the TV which... More

I recently stayed at Riu Plaza The Gresham with my 20 year old daughter and thoroughly recommend it to everyone! I have stayed before with my sister but wasn't sure if my daughter would love it as much as me. I needn't have worried as she thought everything about it was perfect . We stayed in The Lavery Wing which... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and are kept in very good conditions. The hotel is within walking distance to Dublin One high street so its very convenient for shoppers. I would definitely recommend the hotel to family and friends and I look forward to my next visit.

This hotel is in a good central location. Check in and check out was smooth and carparking was easy and staff are nice. Breakfast is very good but is 23 euro pp if you don't get it included in your rate. Unfortunately on this occasion the water for the shower was only barely lukewarm but I would stay here again...

The hotel itself was beautiful. Room was clean with a nice view overlooking the street. The street noise was a bit loud at night, but also part of what comes with being in the city center. The first stop of the hop on hop off bus tour was right I'm front and the bus to the airport is across the... More

We visited many Riu Palace hotels and they are usually brilliant beside of the Gresham.We stayed there several days for a special birthday and we did not enjoy. The room was very noisy (much traffic and road works) and there were no proper sound-proof windows. The minibar was empty and not even a bottle of water on the table. We... More
