4 of us (2 couples) visited Dublin for a weekend away in early December 2016, we had researched hotels in Dublin and although not cheap the Gresham was getting good reviews, sadly our experience did not live up to the hype. The hotel itself was lovely, eating & bar area very nice, the rooms were just about ok, but seriously...

We recently stayed in the Gresham for a 2 night midweek break over midterm. We booked online for what was a great price. Neither of us had stayed in the Gresham before but we were really looking forward to it. The location of the hotel is very appealing for those who want to explore the city on foot. We booked...

Great location, got a bus from the airport to O'Connell Street where the hotel is situated. Very close to some great attractions such as the temple bar area and it was still walkable to the Guinness Storehouse. Room was great although slightly overheated at times so we had to use the aircon. Nice shower and very polite staff. Didn't eat...

Found this hotel to be lovely and in a great location. The staff we encountered were helpful, friendly and polite. The bedroom was a nice size and the bed was comfortable. I would stay here again. We didn't have breakfast here as it was expensive.

This was a Christmas present from my family, my boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend at this hotel. We had a fabulous time in Dublin despite the weather and our hotel was great, staff very polite and accommodating on check in. My only issue was I was charged twice for our room, instead of £309 coming out of my...

Hotels in Dublin are expensive if you are looking for convenient location. The Gresham is still living off its "famous" reputation. Overall the price was reasonable. Had a twin room on 4th floor which had been refurbushed. Electric power sockets for UK, Euro and USA above the desk area which is very good. Step in bath for a shower which...

Oh dear...... she was such a grand lady of old Dublin in her day, but I guess all things change over time.

We chose the Gresham because of the fond memories of our stays there in the past, we were not disappointed! The group was 12 for the dinner in the Brasserie and the Catering manager, his staff were really wonderful, caring and provided a service well in excess of what was expected. Our rooms were fine - comfortable bed, great shower...

My husband booked us this hotel for a weekend away in Dublin for my birthday. The hotel was very good and the staff very friendly, helpful and attentive.
