Our experience at Dublin's Mespil Hotel could not have been better! Upon learning that we were celebrating a birthday, the manager left a note, a festive decoration, and a box of chocolates on the bed and allowed us to stay 45 minutes after check-out at no additional charge.

We stayed here for 3 days, no smart TV set up yet no tea or coffe in the room you have to pay nearly 4 euro on restaurant. 2 bottle of water given free. Hotel was clean and tidy but still standard. Breakfast was nice but nearly 35 euros for 2 people Is excessive.

Excellent. Only 1 night stay wish we could have stayed longer to take a walk down the canal. Perfect to stay over for concert in the city. Lovely places to eat all around. Very relaxed but yet a treat.

After a truly disastrous check in process which left us disappointed - a long story with room issues, we had resolved ourselves that nothing could be done to find a suitable room and got on with our mini break. However within 4 hours we had the general manager on the telephone

There is an option of gluten free bread. And Ireland sis very good at identifying food allergies.
Ireland is very food conscious, most menues have food allergies at the bottom of the page.

I'd get the Airlink 757 bus to St.Stephen's Green, 11 euro return for an adult - you can book online in advance. From there you can walk down Baggot Street to the Mespil in about 10 minutes, or a taxi would be less than 10 euro depending on the traffic.

I’d spring for the taxi. You don’t want to be on a bus with luggage and if there is more than one of you there is little price difference and you’ll get there faster.

"My room on the back side, facing away from the canal and street, was very quiet"
"Ask for a room overlooking the canal."
"stay away from the elevator"
"Speak up if you're assigned to an inferior room."
"Back room overlooking car park is far less noisy but still no aircon"
