“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We stayed at The Gibson from 17/11 to19/11. Staff were very welcoming and our room was excellent. I missed not having a soft seated foyer area to sit and relax in.Having the Luas on the doorstep was a real bonus.

My boyfriend and I stayed here over a weekend and there was nothing that we could fault.
The room we had was large and tidy; bathroom was big and clean; different types of pillows available (I don't like feather pillows) and it was quiet.
We had lunch and drinks at the Hemi bar which was very nice; all of the staff were very friendly and approachable.
Location was good - easy to get to from the airport (there is an Airlink bus which has the Gibson hotel as the first stop from the airport but we had issues getting one from the hotel to the airport because they were full - taxi cost us 20 euros). The Luas is right outside the hotel and easy to get around the city using this. We also liked the fact that it was a bit out of the city centre as it was a bit quieter
Overall would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone

Spacious , bright , clean , modern , well run , friendly hotel. Underground parking and easy to locate. Just across from O2 and Luas stop outside the door . Perhaps not the best located hotel if you are the type that nip back and forward a couple of times during the day as a15/20 min walk from the city centre. But Luas of course would do the trick as well . Rooms are great , breakfast is a pleasure so give yourself time to enjoy . Worth the extra 10 euro . Bar is also very relaxing in the evening. I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the courtyard - no great scenery but very quiet - ideal .

We stayed in the hotel for a weekend away for my partners birthday. The location is unreal 10 minute bus ride from the airport bus 747 which drops you off 30 seconds walk from your hotel, ride outside the front door is the LUAS (Tram) stop which takes you directly into Dublin city centre. We arrived around 8:30 due to having an early morning flight upon arrival we was greeted with a very firm hand shake, we was advised that our room was not ready however they will store our luggage & the room should be ready around 11am, we used the LUAS into Dublin for some breakfast arriving back at the hotel around 11 am I was surprised to find out room was ready waiting for us! The room itself is extremely comfortable, stylish and spacious. The food was to die for, I would love to stay at The Gibson Hotel again !

What an amazing place to stay!! I stay in hotels quite frequently with work & this has been the most flawless stay to date. Wonderful staff, from Noel the concierge to Stuart in room service. Outstanding team. Really wish I could take this hotel with me on all my business trips.

had a great stay here a few days ago, we were down to see the Lumineers at the o2.
The hotel is very easy to find with good road access and a luas stop just outside the main door, and if you going to the o2 is just across the street from it.
The rooms was clean and a good size, the beds were just right for me, slightly soft but with a firm core, being 6ft 2in and off a large build, sometime hotel beed don't fit me that well but i had a very good night sleep here. the shower was great with lots of room in it.
we had a few beers in the bar and some light lunch and again excellent waitress service and a good range of beers to select from. after the show we were able to get back to the hotel and sit in the front bar with a few whiskeys and watch the world go buy, a great way to finish the night
the breakfast in the morning was lovely with good quality bacon and sausages.
next time i am looking somewhere to stay in Dublin this will be my first stop.

We stayed in the hotel for a gig in the point/O2,it's around a 30second walk to it. The hotel room is extremely comfortable and stylish. It contains everything you could possibly need in a hotel stay, an amazingly comfortable bed, a fridge, a safe, a balcony, a huge shower and really nice lighting. We both loved the room and wished we could stay on for another night.
The staff are very welcoming, friendly and approachable.
We took the additional offer of paying €10 for breakfast the night before, saving €10 between us if we'd have paid at breakfast. My partner had the cooked breakfast which he enjoyed, I had the continental which was grand.
Overall we loved our stay, will definitely stay again and have already been recommending it to family and friends. Thanks

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
