Stayed at The Gibson for a couple of nights when on a city break in Dublin.
Location wise the hotel was fine, the airport shuttle stops on it's doorstep, and the trams going into the centre of town also stop right outside (two euros and about a five minute journey), fair walk from the centre once the trams stop running, but we managed to get a taxi back for under ten euros.
The room was spacious and very clean and comfortable, the fresh bottle of water each day is also a nice touch. The bathroom was lovely as well, nice walk in shower.
Staff were pleasant enough but I found it all a bit clinical, the reception wasn't overly welcoming, and it felt a bit like wandering into an office after the long journey up three escalators.
I would recommend it though, was nice not to be smack bang in the centre and I couldn't really fault the room.
