Stayed here for 7 nights during a conference at the nearby Convention Centre. The hotel has a very interesting design where all the rooms face towards inner courtyards complete with bamboo and Rock Gardens. The rooms gave off a feeling of Zen and tranquility in the middle of Dublin City. The rooms were also very well-equiped with modern amenities and conveniences.
Breakfast was included in our booking package and was delicious. Breakfast in Ireland is much different that what we are accustomed to in the States, but I found the options to be quite delicious and satisfying.
Another feature of the hotel is the under-utilized Relaxation Room on the top level, which was a very nice escape from the daily grind. Complete with Sauna, Steam Room and Copper Baths, it was another peaceful environment in the middle of the City.
Location was not ideal, but the City Centre and Business District (as well as most restaurant options) were just a short Luas ride away.
- 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
